I saw an article on these forums claiming that John Freshwater, teacher of 21 years burned a cross on a students arm which according to this article is false.
He would not take his bible off his desk where it has been for 21 years and they have railroaded him. He has lost his job and faces court action.
Now they claim he is not a good teacher.:shrug:
“The main issue behind these complaints is John’s refusal to remove his personal Bible from his desk,” he explained.
Pastor Matolyak said the entire ordeal started five years ago when Freshwater raised a question to his students about intelligent design. Freshwater was covering the theory in his classroom, just as he was covering the theory of evolution, when he received complaints about the inclusion of intelligent design in his curriculum. Meetings ensued with the principal, superintendent, and eventually the school board, which shot down his argument that intelligent design, like the theory of evolution, should be taught as a creation theory. Freshwater then agreed to stop teaching the theory and has not done so since.
“Since then, there have been people who have had it out for John,” claims the pastor, who believes this first incident acted as the catalyst for the recent events.
One home schooling mother told me the reason she took her child out of the system. One day during a discussion on controversial matters, the child mentioned he didn’t think abortion was good. The teacher told the child never to bring it up again as he was intolerant of others beliefs.
