God I hope that teacher was fired. Probably won't be though.
That may be the single gayest thing I have ever read on this board. Or the old one. ;)

Why am I not surprise that this happened in the state where Bobby Jindal is governor.

65% of the comments are good, 35% are trash or "But not all Christians are like that so you shouldn't blame all of them for <x>" which is deflecting the issue.

As for this, I'm not surprised this happened, just pissed that it's allowed to happen.

Try the entire chain of command.

And slapped with something a bit weightier than a hand.  Like, say... a bowling ball.

I can't say I'm at all surprised. I've met Bible Belt Christians who literally think that the only religious protection the First Amendment offers is that you get to choose your own denomination of Christianity.

Without trying to play the racist card, I can't help wondering if it goes back to the slave owners before the Civil War. Before then, I don't remember reading about the South being any more religious than the rest of the country, but as the slavery debate heated up, many Southerners used Bible quotes to justify it. After the South's defeat, I remember reading that there was a sharp uptick in religious revivals, particularly in response to the harsh measures taken during Reconstruction.

If you look at it logically, cannibalism has great potential to simultaneously solve our overpopulation and food shortage problems.

On the other hand, there were a number of Christians in Dixie who used the Bible in their arguments against slavery and for Civil Rights.

By any chance, are you related to my sister in law's mother? She told me "No, no, you have it wrong. The christians ended slavery. The slave holders were just secular atheists pretending to be christian."

She's a public school teacher. Let that sink in.

No, I'm just saying that there were Christians on both sides of the issue.

Yeah, while there were plenty of slave-owning Christians, don't forget that John Brown was a pastor, and so were a lot of abolitionists.
Excuse me, sir, do you have a minute to talk about your lord and savior, Hannibal Barca?

Religion is regarded by the common man as true, by the wise man as false, and by the powerful man as useful
Yeah, if the pagans are so smart, why did Jesus invade Pagan-land on the back of a dragon and kill them all!
