How can we as a people advance if we still live in the dark ages of superstition?Must this guy defend every superstision when the disscusion comes about.Would he have lost his job if he said Budda,or Allah,Santa Claus ,or Zues, or Peter Rabbit was a fairy tale?
I thought there was a clean cut between church and state.We would be a peacefull world if everyone believed in THEMSELVES.Please don't respond to me with biblical quotes.

These people are in college, adults.... period. They should be old enough by now to believe what they were taught as children by thier families.
Who cares what he said, it doesn't justify firing him. Things in this country are just getting out of hand. Freedom of speech will now land you in jail, prison, out of a job and/or dead.
Sometimes I'd rather live in a cave in Iraq rather than this country where you basically have to have permission even think differently than others.
Mormons are just a cult.
Oh my gosh, lets see how fast that turns into WW III.

I was in Steve Bitterman's Western Civilization class up until he got fired. I don't think the whole story got told, because in my mind it wasn't so much as having your own beliefs and opinion in his class as it was that you felt attacked and belittled everytime you spoke in his class. He would ask you for your opinion and then attack you, he yelled at students and laughed at them blatantly. He was one of the rudest, most pompeous, arrogant, self absorbed asshole teachers that I ever got the displeasure to encounter. I am glad he got fired. I am open-minded and believe everyone is entitled to their own faith, beliefs, opinions whatever, but this guy is a whack-job. I feel sorry for his students at Metro Community College in Omaha, NE where I'm sure he is making their lives miserable as well. My condolences.
