The scariest part to me is how many people are on the teacher's side. Now if he were specifically asked religious questions, and stated his religious viewpoint in the framework of personal belief, that's acceptable, he should never lie about his faith or anything like that. But telling a student she's doomed to go to Hell because she doesn't accept Jesus Christ? And people in the district think it's OKAY??? That's a belligerent and hurtful statement made to a student completely outside the framework of education and it's absolutely unacceptable. It should be made clear to this teacher that he has NO right to tell a student they're wrong and immoral for rejecting his personal belief system. How can anyone see this as not preaching?

The God of the Bible was ready to destroy every living creature on earth because some humans irritated Him. That's the story of Noah. I mean, that's beyond genocide - you don't know how to describe this creature. Somebody offended Him, and He was going to destroy every living being on earth? And then He was talked into allowing two of each species to stay alive - so that's supposed to be gentle and wonderful Question

I'm glad that we have brave men (or women, whichever you are) like you to sacrifice their sanity for the good of civilization.

I, for one, am not nearly so brave, or psychologically stable. If i went into teaching, I'd crack like a walnut.

I have seen a teacher explain the mechanics of a walnut cracker. Is that similar.

Very much so. The students and the job are the walnut cracker, and my sanity is the walnut.
