Oh wow. Get a load of this: Public school teacher tells class: "You belong in hell".

quote:
Among his remarks in open class were statements that a being must have created the universe, that the Christian Bible is the word of God, and that dinosaurs were aboard Noah's ark. If you do not accept Jesus, he flatly proclaimed to his class, "you belong in hell." Referring to a Muslim student who had been mentioned by name, he lamented what he saw as her inevitable fate should she not convert. In an attempt to promote biblical creationism, he also dismissed evolution and the Big Bang as non-scientific, arguing by contrast that the Bible is supported by what he calls confirmed biblical prophecies.


Gee, think that's crossing the line just a little *&%$#@ bit??

What brought that on? this. Original posting here.

Another example of this guy's lunacy here.

I'm delighted that the courageous student recorded the teacher's actual outrageous words. But the fact that the administration did not immediately suspend the lying SOB pending dismissal is the most troubling part of this.

Now we'll see if the school board has been infiltrated by "stealth" fundies, as so many have. (Often, fundies have run for school boards in non-conservative districts without declaring their actual agendas, only to support theocratic teaching later.)

Amazing that so many past students posted in the blog. I could see someone sharing the blog with classmates but a lot of them claim to have had the teacher years ago.

You can just feel the evangelical tone in the defenders, with one exception a person who talks about Bible meetings but goes on to laud the student and condemn the teacher's behavior.

These were not merely religious comments:

http://www.theobserver.com/currentissue/transcript.shtml
“I agree with [Rumsfeld]. Members of the media are (Nazi supporters). I mean, just look at Geraldo Rivera, and Alan Colmes.”

Responding to a question about what should happen to a kid who doesn't have faith in Christ

“Until you're 18 years old, you have to. At 18, I'll still love you, but I won't agree with you. If a kid is 12 and says ‘Dad, I don't want to go to church with you,' after I break his backside, we'll look to have a little attitude adjustment, you know?”

"The public schools shouldn't teach a religion, but the scriptures aren't a religion. (Instead), the scriptures are the foundation of the world's religions. And yes, the Bible. We should be able to bring the Bible into the classroom and read it."

“Evolution is scientific. You assume that because you've been indoctrinated on that. Truly, the idea of evolution is based on faith. It takes more faith that something came from nothing than God created the earth. If there's nothing, it can't explode. No one ever recorded an explosion creating order. There had to be a being. Gravity — that's not the creator.”



Wow! just wow!

That teacher's a psycho, and maybe even physically dangerous to his students.
