Shame on you ignorant people. That are so anxious to condemn, prejudge, and lie.
Yes, shame on Freshwater for being an ignorant liar.
America is losing our connection to God
How was that determined in an objectively verifiable manner? This might surprise many Americans, as the vast majority of them are theists, predominantly some variation of Christianity.
other teachers had Bibles and posters.
They did? What were their names and which classes?
Many kids had that experiment done with no reaction, maybe the metal in hockey equipment irritated it.
In which case he should have stopped as soon as the first one had a reaction. But there were multiple students who suffered marks. In other words you are saying he was negligent to child safety instead of deliberately marking them for religious reasons.
He had years of teaching successfully records come up missing, only found late in the trial with the burden placed on him to go through document and record .this railroad job could happen to any of us.
Which is irrelevant to the fact he had materials in there he shouldn't have which he used for "teaching science", despite the fact they were actually non-scientific religious apologetics.
And I'm not even referring to the Bible here, whose open display alone in a public school science class is a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution, which Freshwater should have been aware of. Students are free to have their own Bible's or other religious books if they so wish which they can read during non-studying hours. But an agent of the Government (which is what a public school teacher is as public schools receive Government funding) is not allowed to show preference to any one religion over another, and ESPECIALLY not allowed to influence other people's children in such a manner.
I hope it happens to some of you filled with venom.
Wow, that was quite a venomous sentence!
As you cheer the morals and values that made America great go down the toilet, may you get what you deserve.
Then you should be a moral person and condemn Freshwater's attempt to infringe on the rights to religious freedom of his students. America was founded upon the principles of freedom and self-determination, and Freshwater tried many times over many years to trample all over that. And then lied in court to cover himself up. His actions were appalling to say the least.
