Another public school teacher with a martyr complex

Once again another public school teacher crying and whining persecution because he isn't allowed to bring his religion into a secular classroom. Clearly, as the article states, this teacher needs some refresher U.S. Government and History classes. And if he can't keep his religion to himself, he needs to go find a job at some mythology-based school.

Martyr Complex: 'Persecuted' Ohio Teacher Should Follow The Constitution

Here we go again. There’s another public school teacher out there inappropriately bringing religion into the classroom. This time it’s John Freshwater, a science teacher at Mount Vernon Middle School in Ohio, who’s refusing to remove a Bible from his classroom desk.

This isn’t an innocent mistake by some blissfully ignorant teacher. The Columbus Dispatch reports Freshwater has a pattern of bringing religion into the classroom.

He was asked last week to remove the Ten Commandments from his classroom (a 1980 U.S. Supreme Court case prohibits their display in public schools) and has taught his students about “intelligent design”– the latest variant of creationism — and the alleged “holes in evolution.”

Freshwater believes the separation of church and state “is a fraud,” his spokesman told the Dispatch. Clearly this science teacher doesn’t understand his job or the Constitution.

tommy, that's right! These people want to bring in their own form of Christinsanity to the public school system to try to brainwash the young kids with their own brand of nonsense. There are too many of these asshats who go totally undetected for a long time and some never get found out. And people wonder why Johnny can't read. It's because Johnny is having other bullcrap shoved at him instead of what he needs for a proper education.

Why do we have these zombies teaching our kids?

Well, a certificate in crowd control is all that is needed. But how much a teacher knows, their ability to teach is not considered. Just that they have managed to jump through the proper hoops is enough for most school districts.
