Biblical Sloppiness

Dyker Neyland explained to the Irving ISD school board that the Bible forbids her daughter from complying with a dress code that requires that shirts be tucked in. Citing a verse that tells women to dress modestly, Ms. Neyland argued that a tucked in shirt unduly exposed her 7 year old's bottom.

Though she was capable of coming up with that dazzling hermeneutic, Ms. Neyland evidently can't find any verses that would compel church attendance. She explains she doesn't go because she can't afford a proper dress.

The school board accepted the argument and agreed that her daughter would not have to comply with the code.
