From the Panda's Thumb, quoting the referee:
John Freshwater purposely used his classroom to advance his Christian religious views knowing full well or ignoring the fact that those views might conflict with the private beliefs of his students. John Freshwater refused and/or failed to employ objectivity in his instruction of a variety of science subjects and, in so doing, endorsed a particular religious doctrine. By this course of conduct John Freshwater repeatedly violated the Establishment Clause. Without question, the repeated violation of the Constitution of The United States is a "fairly serious matter" and is, therefore, a valid basis for termination of John Freshwater’s contract(s). Further, he repeatedly acted in defiance of direct instructions and orders of the administrators - his superiors. These defiant acts are also a "fairly serious matter" and, therefore, a valid basis for termination of John Freshwater’s contract (s). My recommendation to the Board of Education of the Mount Vernon City School District is that the Board terminate John Freshwater’s contract(s) for "good and just cause".

In this day & age, I really hate to see someone lose his job, but I must make an exception in this case. Freshwater should not instruct children.

Maybe he can get a new gig at AiG.

No real surprise here, Freshwater has actually been terminated.

That is over the line and he had to have known it.

Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. Jn 3:18

Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. - George Washington

After an immense amount of courtroom drama, the Ohio Supreme Court has decided that Freshwater was justifiably terminated. They decided to punt the Constitutional questions by focusing on his insubordination. Wingnuts declare "Ohio Supreme Court Affirms Science Teacher's Right to Keep Personal Bible on Desk," but they pointedly didn't answer that question at all.
