A North Carolina high school student is making a stand by not writing a classroom assignment about the devil because it goes against her religious beliefs reports WTVD-TV .
Gray's Creek High School Honor roll student Tieanna Trough refused to write an essay that was given to her English class about making a deal with the devil because it goes against her Christian faith.
The essay was assigned after the class finished reading Washington Irving's short story "The Devil and Tom Walker." The story is about a man that makes a deal with the devil to get rich, but then backs out of the deal.
The teacher instructed them that the essay was to be about how you would sell your soul to the devil or what you would trade to make a deal with the devil.
Trough said, "I believe you don't write about how to sell your soul to the devil."
Other students also complained about the assignment a
