    Lowercase t!

    Please help
    What is the following sentence talking about?

    "A little girl entered my periphery, guiding her father by the hand.
    “And this,” she said, pointing to the cross, “is what we’re learning about this week!”
    She paused for dramatic effect, then announced, with pedantic precision, “Lowercase t!”"

    Please note the "t" in “Lowercase t!” is a cross.

    Raising Freethinkers, pp 71

    Re: Lowercase t!

    The girl has confused the religious symbol of a cross with a lowercase letter t. She thinks they represent the same thing.
