Okay, see THIS is why some people are uncomfortable with "christians". Obviously this guy is a nut case, and the vast majority of people who identify as Christian would not do what he did, but this is what causes problems for the rest of us.

Look "God Boy",(a) it's a public school not a parochial school and (b) he burned middle-schoolers. Burned! I don't care if he burned the Darwin fish or a pentagram or the cross onto their arms. HE BURNED THEM! What kind of a sick teacher does that??

Is this for real..........Did the writer leave something out..
This teacher should have been arrested on the spot and charged with child abuse...teaching religion in a public school.
Why did the parents have to file a federal lawsuit to get action taken against this man....Why was he even taken before the school board.Practicing religion in a public school.

OK, so he went over the line a little when he burned crosses in kid's arms. Does that make him a bad teacher? I wish all teachers had his enthusiasm for the truth.
Dude, are you nuts? Burn a cross on my kid's arm and we'll see how "over the line a little" you'll feel you went when me or any other red-blooded parent is done with you.

man.....if a person really wants to teach a religious class and burn kids then they can just get a job at a private religious school teaching Anti Science and Burning Children for Jesus 101

darn hypocrites....criticizing public schools and what they change yet not willing to take the paycut and lose the pension that would happen if they actually put their convictions where their mouths are and teach at a private religious school

Hmm...maybe Nero was right when he threw the christians to the lions. Maybe he knew that they would end up so absolutely insane like over the centuries.
