Holy Water Splash Leads to Religious Clash in Pompano School
|Dozier will be hosting a meeting of pastors today upset over the Blanche Ely incident.|
Along with teacher Djuna Robinson, (fellow teacher Leslie) Rainer is accused of sprinkling holy water on fellow teacher Schandra Rodriguez, an avowed atheist who was expressing her lack of belief in God with students.Rainier is the wife of the Rev. Willie J. Rainier, pastor of Hopewell Baptist Church in Pompano. The Rainiers will be joined by pastors from a dozen local congregations at a public meeting scheduled for 5 today at the Rev. O'Neal Dozier's Worldwide Christian Center on Powerline Road, according to the report.
After Rodriguez filed a complaint with school district officials, Leslie Rainer and Robinson were escorted out of the classroom on April 22 in front of students, and were ordered not to return to school grounds until further notice.
