TRANSCRIPT

Children at Daisy Brook elementary school in Fremont, Michigan, no longer have the option to attend an off campus Bible class after a complaint was filed.

That also set off an uproar among parents, who had enrolled their child in the class: "I don't believe it was a violation of the First Amendment."

The church class wasn't on school property: "In my own opinion, if you're not physically or emotionally hurt by it, I don't know why you'd make such a fuss."

Two Atheist activists who've made careers out of targeting schools, churches, the U.S. Army, even the Boys and Girls Club, targeted the school district that also tells FOX News it's reviewing the bible study class for possible reinstatement next year.
