Quote:
Allison Fitzgerald wanted to attend a Bible study program with her young daughter.

But she was turned away because 4-year-old Reagan suffers from a peanut allergy.

Officials with the San Antonio-based program that sponsors the classes say that their volunteers aren't trained to react if something goes wrong, and that they don't want to risk the girl's safety.


But, aren't they willing to be trained?
And the part that really blows me away...
