    Teacher is docking kids grades for saying bless you to another student that sneezes. You can have your own believes and you can do another thing but to mess with a kids grades because you dont like it wrong!

    Yanno..........blessings are pretty much non denominational...........ALL religions have some form of blessing.

    Shoot...........it can even be used in secular society. That teacher was way outta line.

    I'd be fighting this teacher (and the school) tooth and nail!!!
    Well...it's been getting pretty bad since prayer was taken out of the school....and it's not going to get better. I'm surprised most schools still let the kids have the prayer at the flagpole once a year!

    He does not seem to know that when you sneeze and say bless you, now days, it's means , I hope you are not coming down with something.
    He does not have the right to push his ideology on to others.

    Me personally? I'm not overly fond of allowing religion into schools, because nowadays, almost every town in the US has several different religions, and it would be difficult to accomodate them all.

    However.........saying "bless you" is non-denominational, as well as can be used secularly.

    Wow ...

    This is the kind of story I'd like to hear a follow-up for after the dust has settled. Wonder what this teacher's future is in his school district.

    Fox tried to turn it into a religious discrimination in the classroom story, but failed miserably. The teacher is clearly just a hard ass who doesn't like it when his class is disrupted for any reason. Not saying I agree with him, just saying that this story isn't really worthy of news.
