A 13-year-old school student who has a scar running down his forearm in the shape of a cross burnt by his teacher had to move out of town with his mother after being ostracized by the town´s Christians. Dennis and her son had to move 35 miles away.
"When I looked at it, the shape was definitely a cross, like a Christian cross". "Zach said his teacher did it with an instrument that gave off something like a lightning bolt. It was red, like a sunburn or if you burn your arm on the oven," said his mom.
All of this happened three years ago and since then, this town has been embroiled in religious turmoil. Teacher John Freshwater claimed he was laid off due to having a Bible on his desk, which he was asked to remove and refused.
