This atheist thinks that the kid has a right to dicuss his religion with anyone who wants to listen IN SCHOOL as long as it is done during free time and NOT disturbing or interrupting a class. The teacher was wrong.
and in the end it is just another black eye for secularists
the conservative fundies will point to this and day "SEE! we ARE being discriminated against!"
and then most Americans, unable to dismiss the obvious, will agree that secularists (liberals) "go too far" and should "just shut up" and "stop causing trouble"
then we'll have to listen to more crap about America being a "christan nation" and "god is on our MONEY and in our PLEDGE and our MOTTO and in ALL of our LAWS!" and "all our rights come from god!" and nonsense like that.
what bullshit. hopefully the teacher is fired and kid really lacks any strong relgious convictions if he stops talking about it out of fear of fights.
The teacher was wrong,
but deserves another chance if he shows the proper attitude and response.
Heck while I lived in Tampa a cop threw a disabled guy and his guide dog out of a restaurant.
Just for having a dog there. While they are clearly allowed by law.
Now that cop had no ambiguity in his decision and was just plain ignorant.
Not sure how a person could grow up and not know that law...
cop should be fired and then thrown overboard a mile out in the gulf
