"I feel like she was bullied by a teacher," Gilbert said of her daughter.

She was, but it was Christian bullying, so it's totally acceptable.

I can't wrap my brain around stories like this. I mean, WTF was this "teacher" thinking when she did that? Send the kids home to enlighten their parents? Sway future voters? Did she believe there would be no repercussions? And if she believed there would be no repercussions, isn't she too farking stupid to be a teacher?

Career teaching is a horrific job. Overworked, underpaid, everyone's a backseat driver: you just snap. I don't mean you go on a rampage or anything. But eventually you just reach a point where you just lose the ability to use judgement. It happens a lot. I'd bet mental exhaustion is behind more sick days than disease.

Next time your teacher is a sub, ask yoursef "Is it really a cold or does teaching just suck." then vote for pay rises to educators. (Raise in 'merican, I guess.)

I have a friend from Laurel County who currently works for the state Democratic Party in Frankfort. He told me it was difficult to tell his family and friends he was a Democrat. As he put it, "Admitting you're a Democrat in London is about like admitting you're a homosexual."

What will be funny is if the 'Tucky Education Professional Standards Board comes down hard on this teacher, and most likely tries to take away her teaching credentials, and the teacher turns to the Union for help.

You know, the nasty, horrible, Liberal Teacher's Union?
The one that most likely gave (through its national body) to the Obama re-election campaign?

Yeah, that one. I know it wouldn't happen, but it would be funny if her Steward told said teacher they would help defend her, but that it meant she would be going to Hell with the Liberals, Gheys and Union Thugs.

Luckily for you, I have an old bartender buddy order an extra case for me at wholesale and I pick it up.

Perhaps we need a little more outrage on the liberal side of things. Because we don't throw a a fit, because we don't lockstep... We lose ground by compromising.

This teacher should be farking fired. But she won't, because her community is filled with lockstep conservatives- who will protect their backs.

No teacher should involve the students in politics...unless its current affair class.

Darth_Lukecash: because we don't lockstep...


You just summed it up. You and I likely have the same basic core beliefs, but there's probably a ton of of details we don't agree on. In today's GOP, even the details must be adhered to in order to be a member of the club.

We don't get outraged because, despite decades of conservative claims, we don't have a unifying voice. And I would hate for that to be the case. I agree that there should be more (much more) outrage, but because we're not all lockstep to some am radio show, that's not happening.

I think that makes us the bigger man. We lose fights here and there, but we're not going to lose the battle.

KrispyKritter: . it was a psychology class. she was trying to get the students provoked, to think and react.

Gilbert said the problem started before Baker wrote the statement on her board. The day after the election, there was discussion in Baker's psychology class about the presidential vote.

President Barack Obama defeated Republican challenger Mitt Romney, but in Laurel County, where registered Republicans outnumber Democrats 3 to 1, Romney trounced Obama by a vote of 18,151 to 3,905.

During the classroom discussion, Baker made remarks in class against same-sex marriage, Gilbert said.

Chelsea Gilbert, an admirer of Obama, told Baker she was offending people, Mary Gilbert said.

There are gay students in the class, Mary Gilbert said.

She said Baker responded by telling Chelsea she would someday have to take her parents to the emergency room and watch them die because of the president's health care reform law, commonly called Obamacare.

Apparently, she was correct. She is still teaching, after all.

My guess is that if she had written something nasty about Sarah Palin (or John Calipari) she would be down at the unemployment office this morning, trying to figure out why they denied her claim.

Man, the level of projection going on in today's Republicans is almost shocking.

Does she really think that by supporting the party that stands for unrestricted greed, intolerance, hatred, and imperialism, all in the name of paying lipservice to freedom (by which they mean, freedom for the upper class who belong to the right social clubs, and the rural poor get thrown a few crumbs) and done under the banner of a heretical twisted version of Christianity, would make Jesus pleased?

2. That the republican candidate just shoiwng up isn't enough to win....you actually have to have good ideas and a good message.

3. Republicans refuse to admit 1 and 2.

Darth_Lukecash: dickfreckle: Since this was a 'conservative's' comment, it won't be known by too many people. We'll gripe about it here and on some blogs. But had some teacher done the same, only substituting "Republicans" for "Democrats," it would air on FOX and Limbaugh for days.

That's the fundamental difference between Republicans and "everyone else" media. We don't really get outraged. We just kind of laugh at you and move on.

Perhaps we need a little more outrage on the liberal side of things. Because we don't throw a a fit, because we don't lockstep... We lose ground by compromising.

This teacher should be farking fired. But she won't, because her community is filled with lockstep conservatives- who will protect their backs.

No teacher should involve the students in politics...unless its current affair class.


Would you recommend she be fired for teaching about safe sex but forget to include abstinence in that discussion?

You can't go around firing people simply because they don't follow the same political philosopy as yourself. I'm not sure how religious the comment was intended or whether it was a masked variation of "Democrats can go to hell" as even non-believers are frequently referring others to. I do agree that politics have no business in the classroom- other than in a sociology or political sciences classroom and only if all sides are given equal time-- so a good reprimand may all that be in order here.

More than that and the ACLU will be in defending the teacher's 1st amendmant rights.

pedobearapproved: Well high school teachers are tenured now, like professors.


No, they are not. For one, contracts for public school teachers differs tremendously state to state, thus saying "high school teachers" would be extremely inaccurate. Second, "tenure" refers to professional contract teachers which provides various benefits based on the state; these benefits may include (note "may") preferred employment over nonprofessional contracts, preferred place or position of employment, automatic renewal of contract, appeal of termination, professional development for failing teachers, and more. Nowhere, however, is this near tenure for professors; the principal is still able to dismiss a teacher but has to have given a reason and given notice for a chance to correct, which basically protects from a single poor year after several proficient ones.

So... shut the f*ck up.

/WTF? on so many levels

Career teaching is a horrific job. Overworked, underpaid, everyone's a backseat driver: you just snap. I don't mean you go on a rampage or anything. But eventually you just reach a point where you just lose the ability to use judgement. It happens a lot. I'd bet mental exhaustion is behind more sick days than disease.

Next time your teacher is a sub, ask yoursef "Is it really a cold or does teaching just suck." then vote for pay rises to educators. (Raise in 'merican, I guess.)

Riiiiiiiiight, because money cures mental exhaustion. I always forget about that direct correlation. It makes sense, the people with the most money are the most mentally sound.

I have to agree with you here... I am all for paying teachers well for a thankless job, which will hopefully mean that we get more talented and intelligent people as teachers, but it does nothing to combat or compensate the underling issues that are related to flat out mental fatigue.

If anything, I would say going nuts is almost an occupational hazard for most teachers! How do you pay someone for that and consider them compensated?

Obviously, work conditions need to change sufficiently to make teaching a healthy occupational choice for individuals and some more money to ensure that we don't get people who are quite literally just a step up from convience store clerks in terms of aptitude and attitude into these positions.

The issues are probably not really as related as most people would assume.

Yes, I read the article, and it seemed on first glance like this teacher was so over the top in her behaviour that it could only have possibly been an experiment to show the kids that people were going to have a diverse range of reactions to the results of the election. Republicans raging about the 47 per cent going to hell and all that. Perhaps it was a way to introduce the theories of Kubler-Ross versus Bonanno and how people have attached these theories to all sorts of grief. This is a psychology class after all.

Um, no. In most states you no longer need an Education degree to be a teacher, just a Bachelor's or higher of any kind (or, in some states, of a kind related to the subject you'll be teaching if you're teaching high school).

This has little to do with lowering standards, and a lot to do with "Education" being one of those undergrad majors where you learn so little that you typically come out of the program knowing less than when you went in. They're the only programs in existence that make undergrad business look rigorous and difficult.

//I have no beef with education and business as masters+ disciplines, and the undergrads in the major are I'm sure fine people and fun to drink with, but that doesn't change the fact that the intellectual ability and education indicated by the BS/BA level of the credential is about on par with "GED".

Why does everyone here have a problem with this statement? This seems like a pretty straightforward logical proposition. It states, the set of people who are Democrats and the set of people who go to heaven have no common elements. Any atheist would conclude this proposition is obviously true since the set of people who go to heaven is itself a null set. Even for Christians it is not demonstrably false: the Bible names exactly two people who have gone to heaven: {Elijah, Jesus}. Neither member of that set was a Democrat at the time. 

So, yeah, the teacher is a bully. But she's right.

Part of it is the doing of the "right wing entertainment complex" and the echo chamber it created. The teacher pretty much doesn't know any better. She has been brainwashed by the 24/7 propoganda fed to her. To her, as with many like her, debate is no longer about ideas but rather villifying your opponent and trying to scare others to your side by using arguments that are based on emotion rather than logic. Of course when the ideas you argue against are stuff like feeding hungry children and giving the poor medical care in order to help those who do not need any help, I guess you have to. 

Not justifying it by any means. How an educator with a college degree can susplend all critical thought and willingly allow it to happen is beyond me, but it is their fault since there is enough information openly available to know better.

liam76: Jesus said a lot more about helping the poor, the difficulty of rich people getting into heaven, then talking about gays (whom he never explicitly condemned).

No idea where these farktards get this stuff.


The bible. Paul, mostly. It's hard to discard the bits about gays (and a few other choice ethnic and behavioral groups seemingly picked more or less at random) being evil because it's closely tied to the post-resurrection miracles and books of the new testament, and if you throw those out you also lose, among other things, the bit where god removed the requirement that you be Jewish before you become Christian. Plus a lot of the bits allowing there to be a church in the first place.

So if you want to be a Christian without having to marry into a Jewish family first (it's not the easiest religion in the world to join), and you like eating bacon and there being organized churches beyond informal gatherings, you're stuck with the version of Christianity that has passages decrying gay and premarital sex, i.e. the ones that easily can justify wanting to make sodomy illegal and deny birth control to unmarried women.

//There were at one point denominations of Christianity that weren't part of the councils at Nicea that formalized the contents of the new testament, but I don't think any of them are around anymore, though the occasional masonic lodge will pretend to be one for the usual "seeming more mysterious 'n' shiat" reasons. Even Protestants that don't fully hold to, say, the Nicene creed typically still respect the council's Selection of texts.

Persnickety: 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.'

Matthew 25:41-43


That right there sums up the New Testament's message.... charity and love are what is important... you don't have it, do not pass go... do not collect your wings.

2012-11-28 07:49:15 AM

Jim_Callahan: liam76: Jesus said a lot more about helping the poor, the difficulty of rich people getting into heaven, then talking about gays (whom he never explicitly condemned).

No idea where these farktards get this stuff.

The bible. Paul, mostly. It's hard to discard the bits about gays (and a few other choice ethnic and behavioral groups seemingly picked more or less at random) being evil because it's closely tied to the post-resurrection miracles and books of the new testament, and if you throw those out you also lose, among other things, the bit where god removed the requirement that you be Jewish before you become Christian. Plus a lot of the bits allowing there to be a church in the first place.

So if you want to be a Christian without having to marry into a Jewish family first (it's not the easiest religion in the world to join), and you like eating bacon and there being organized churches beyond informal gatherings, you're stuck with the version of Christianity that has passages decrying gay and premarital sex, i.e. the ones that easily can justify wanting to make sodomy illegal and deny birth control to unmarried women.

//There were at one point denominations of Christianity that weren't part of the councils at Nicea that formalized the contents of the new testament, but I don't think any of them are around anymore, though the occasional masonic lodge will pretend to be one for the usual "seeming more mysterious 'n' shiat" reasons. Even Protestants that don't fully hold to, say, the Nicene creed typically still respect the council's Selection of texts.


I am not saying you have to throw them out, I am saying push comes to shove what Jesus said should trump what Paul said as being more important for christians.

A friend of mine has a bumper sticker he put on his car that says "The only problem with baptists is they don't hold them under longer." He routinely has people yelling at him. I bore witness to it one day as we were standing in a parking lot talking and an older gentleman in a van drove up and asked in a rhetorical way, "Is that a hate crime?" The latest hit was his rear right tail light was mysteriously smashed out.

Probably not the smartest thing to make himself a target like that. Still, I don't believe he has ever yelled at anyone or vandalized their property based on an absurd bumper sticker.

That line reminds me of this Christian radio show I heard a number of years ago. My wife and I were driving in PA, surfing the radio dial for something to listen to, and we came upon a Christian "kids" show with a catchy little number playing. I don't know what the actual title was, but the chorus went,

"You can make a soup from a chicken, but you can't make a chicken from soup!"

The rest of the lyrics were standard Young Earth Creationist babble, but man, it had to be one of the funniest songs I have ever heard. I've searched everywhere to find a copy of it.

Well, I see you're applying for the psychology teaching position.

Yes. As a good Republican, I want to teach Republican psychology in a Republican class and a Republican school.

I see. Fine. And your degree in teaching is from.

Republican University, the Ronald Reagan School of Psychology

Both: All Hail Ronald Reagan! He can do no wrong as he walks among us still!

Very nice. Sadly, I must admit we have some of them in our school.

Blacks?

No.

Mehicanos?

No.

Underachieving drooling retards?

Well, this is Kentucky, so yeah. But I'm talking about Democrats. We have some children who align themselves to the Democratic Party in this school.

Really?

Yes.

No. I mean, really? This is 2012.

Well their parents get free stuff from the government. Money, cell phones, food. All they do is sit around watching free cable TV and breed.

Oh them. Well, none of their demon spawn would be smart enough to get through psychology. Plus they'll never get in to Heaven.

Oh no. They'll get in to a private college before they'll ever get in to Heaven.

Ha ha ha

Quite. Ha ha ha. So, you'll take the job?

Sure. I can't wait to teach all those young Republicans about psychology.

You know, you'll have to tell them that psychology is a "Black Art" like Medicare.

Of course. Republicans are smart enough to see through all this hokey. Jesus made them what they are. In his image and he wants them to have most of the stuff.

You know? You're pretty hot in that business suit and high heels.

The exchange upset Chelsea, who came home crying, Gilbert said.

Any quality teacher using this as a social experiment wouldn't respond to "I'm offended." with "Well, Obama will kill your parents!". They would talk about why people become offended.

TFA: Baker said she had heard the line from a student, and that it was one of her new favorite quotes, Gilbert said.

Reprimand the teacher, there's not much reason in defending her in it. Though it is funny to see people jumping all over it like it's the worst thing she could possibly be doing. Meanwhile we have entire school systems nationwide providing children with the mindset that everything they do is perfectly alright regardless of the results, that if they're ever criticized for their words or actions that the critic is always wrong, that if you're smarter or stronger than others you will only ever attain the same accolades as those dumber and weaker, and that the system will defend you at every transgression. These kinds of policies then allow and promote immediate OMG GO DIAF response to anyone with opinions opposed to the current direction of momentum. While I don't want to see a completely Spartan fight or die system I think we've gone much too far into babying our babies. Resolve is just as important as reason.

2012-11-28 08:32:56 AM
I've stated this before and it cuts both ways. A teacher's religious and political beliefs should not be taught in the classroom. Period. In this case, she should be sticking to teaching psychology.

BokerBill: "You can't be a Democrat & go to heaven"


Why does everyone here have a problem with this statement? This seems like a pretty straightforward logical proposition. It states, the set of people who are Democrats and the set of people who go to heaven have no common elements. Any atheist would conclude this proposition is obviously true since the set of people who go to heaven is itself a null set. Even for Christians it is not demonstrably false: the Bible names exactly two people who have gone to heaven: {Elijah, Jesus}. Neither member of that set was a Democrat at the time. 

So, yeah, the teacher is a bully. But she's right.


It is also not demonstrably true. The statement she wrote was not in the past tense, and in fact implicitly aimed at the future. There are plenty of Christian Dems, they would be inclined to be offended by this rhetoric, as the young lass in the article was. The teacher is not right.

TFA: Baker said she had heard the line from a student, and that it was one of her new favorite quotes, Gilbert said.

I don't care that she is Republican. The problem is that:
1. She espousing religious beliefs in school
2. She is letting her political beliefs interfere with her teaching
3. She is fostering an unprofessional atmosphere.

Why is a Psychology teacher talking about politics? What does "she would someday have to take her parents to the emergency room and watch them die because of the president's health care reform law, commonly called Obamacare." have to do with psychology?

Do I think she should be fired? No.
Do I think she should be punished severly? Yes.

Yeah goddamned liberals with all their facts and statistics and truth, how dare they try and teach kids that stuff. Kids would be much better off learning about fantasy and wishes from the bible. I mean when I was an undergraduate engineering student I was appalled at how liberal my professors were. One of them even taught me about wind turbines, which is clearly a reference to the liberal lie about global warming.

to be fair, you can vote for pro abortion candidates if both major parties run one, or if the anti-abortion candidate would do something even more immoral than condoning abortion.
I'm neither Catholic nor pro-abortion myself, but I have to figure at least one Catholic has twisted that second part to justify it.

Oooh boy,

Obligatory disclaimer. I am a Kentuckian. I'm speaking from experience on this, this ISN'T a surprise. I worked for a while in Laurel County, spent some time working in London. . .yeah, it's pure Red State territory. Saying you're a Democrat is about the same to the locals as saying you're a Communist. The scary part is, that's the "big city" for Eastern Kentucky, and if you go out a little further into the countryside, it gets even redder.

Spinning this around, I've got a good friend of mine who has a Master's in Education and his teaching license. He has been unable to get a teaching job in the Commonwealth for 10 years, apparently blacklisted from the profession (despite having his license and no formal disciplinary marks on his record, he's applied for hundreds of jobs he's certified for and has only got 2 interviews in that decade). What happened? Well, when substitute teaching a high school world civilization class, the lesson plan left behind by the Teacher said to list all the major religions of the world, and summarize their beliefs and give an example of them. He went through Christianity (and the differences between Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant and Reconstructionist), Islam (Sunni and Shia), Judaism (Orthodox, Conservative and Reform), Buddhist (Mahayana and Theraveda), Hinduism, Shintoism, indigenous shamanic beliefs, new age/neo pagan beliefs, basically everything you'd find in a Comparative Theology textbook.

So, then one of his students asked him what his own beliefs were. Since he hadn't mentioned it in the listing of beliefs, he took that as a chance to explain Agnosticism. He briefly described what an agnostic is.

The kids were horrified. It was like they'd never seen one before, and they could not grasp the difference between an agnostic and an atheist. . .and they'd been raised to see atheists as evil hellbound devil-worshippers who hate God. A couple of the kids immediately tried to convert him to Evangelical Christianity. While this was going on, a student asked to use the bathroom. Instead of going to the bathroom, she ran to the Principal's Office to apparently tell everyone there that the substitute teacher was telling everybody that there is no God and trying to convert the entire class to atheism. Within a few minutes, my friend was called to the Principal's office over the intercom, and abruptly fired, with no real chance to explain himself or what was going on.

On top of it all, apparently some of the kids (or their parents) called the local TV news to tell them that there was a "militant atheist" trying to convert schoolkids to atheism at a local high school. They ran the story, saying that "the teacher was not available for comment", despite apparently making no effort to contact him.

He's basically blackballed from the public schools after that. Checking his records makes it clear there is no formal disciplinary marks against him, and his license is in good standing, but once word got out he was an Agnostic, he became unhireable

Also, FTFA: "She said Baker responded by telling Chelsea she would someday have to take her parents to the emergency room and watch them die because of the president's health care reform law, commonly called Obamacare."

Trying to say that because of Obamacare, people will be denied treatment in Emergency Rooms? WTF? That's Derp so refined and weapons-grade that it should be banned under international treaties as a war crime.

Are modern Republicans experiencing the flow of time backwards, or something? It's the only way a statement like that could possibly make any sense... In her past, our future, everyone had proper health care, then "Obamacare" happened (namely, it was taken away) and everyone had to start relying on ERs for their care and ended up dying of otherwise preventable issues... This would also explain why they blame Obama for Bush's crashing of the economy, and ignore the fact that he has improved it during his term: to them, things are going downhill not up! My god... I think I finally understand modern Republicans!

Close2TheEdge: That line reminds me of this Christian radio show I heard a number of years ago. My wife and I were driving in PA, surfing the radio dial for something to listen to, and we came upon a Christian "kids" show with a catchy little number playing. I don't know what the actual title was, but the chorus went,

"You can make a soup from a chicken, but you can't make a chicken from soup!"

The rest of the lyrics were standard Young Earth Creationist babble, but man, it had to be one of the funniest songs I have ever heard. I've searched everywhere to find a copy of it.

 

Your Google-fu is weak. It took me a little more than a minute to find it.

The Bible is a guide for religion, Not government. It doesn't address tax policy any more than copyright law or import tarrifs.

However, it does promulgate many moral principles that the state has elected to enforce. For instance, while the Bible clearly condemns murder, it does not call for it to be punished by secular authorities. It was human politicians, not God, who decided to enforce this Biblical principle by charging it as a Class A felony with mandatory minimum sentencing.

You're free to reject any and all laws that inspired by religious ethics, but you're going to be pretty lonely. Because the kind of assholes that feel entitled to mooch off the social contract also generally feel entitled to use their religion to justify denying rights to women and gay people. In fact, they kind of live for it...

Well, the problem is the students who don't play along with the indoctrination are unfairly given failing grades, get held back and moved to remedial schools, etc. Net effect is that they don't receive enough of an education to know that they're supposed to cite their sources.

I have a grandmother who is a both an evangelical and a diehard Tea Party type, who after about the tenth time she posted on Facebook the same screed about how the election was a clear fraud and they needed to find a military leader (one of "our boys") to help "take back" the government, I decided it was best to risk taking on the trolls and atleast attempt to rationalize with her, because I felt like no one was even communicating with her about how unsound her beliefs are.

Rather than trying to debate policies, I asked her if she would be willing to lose 800,000 lives like the last time the country was torn apart. I asked her if she was ready to bring about another crackerjack general willing to serve his country like Pinochet, Galtieri, or Ghaddafi. I told her I felt the words she was saying were malignant and I would rather die than allow a military coup, and that I would say the same if it were a Democrat in 2004 who was suggesting it. I used that as a neutral example, because the fact of the matter is that it is preposterous. I knew a lot of Democrats who were sad and hurt in 2004, but none of them were acting out that war was the only choice, as she replied.

She is living in a dangerous fantasy world with no consequences. I have no pretensions that she is anything resembling a Christian, other than she would like to force everyone else to be.

Lots of stupid to go around in that article: Stupid teacher who, after being called on expressing political views in the classroom, does it again; and stupid snowflake who, instead of thinking "Wow, that teacher is a dumbass", thinks "wow, that teacher is picking on me personally, and I'm traumatized and can't function now."

No sympathy for anyone.

You fools. It's all right there in the Bible, in the Book of Revelation:

17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

17:2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured donkey, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written a mystery: DNC, the mother of harlots and abominations of the Earth.

17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.



17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads were each inscribed with the mystical letters CBS, NBC, ABC, NPR, PBS, CNN, and MSNBC.

17:10 And there are seven who who rule as kings and oppress the job creators: and their names are in an unknown tongue as with the heads: UAW, AFL-CIO, SEIU, IWW, NEA, US DOL, and NLRB.



17:12 And the ten horns which thou saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. And their names are Soros, Pelosi, Reid, Clinton, Gore, Wasserman-Schultz, Silver, Carter, FDR, and Obama. And the worst of these is Obama.

I dealt with teachers like that throughout school in Texas. Spent about 6 months in lunch detention because I refused to figuratively kowtow to one. Had multiple parent teacher conferences over "respect" throughout the grades because I wouldn't agree that anything and everything they said was truth.

There's almost certainly a lot of more subtle bullying going on by that teacher that isn't making the article. Based on my experiences I'd guess that the teacher has been doing this crap for a long time and this is simply the first time that, in a 80%+ republican crazy-zone, one of the 20% did anything more than make a half-hearted verbal complaint to the principal that was laughed off.

I'm really glad that the kid is getting pulled to be home schooled now. She'll be a *lot* better off for it. If she'd stayed that teacher along with others of similar mind would tacitly encourage and endorse the student body to bully her more than they were already doing.

urbangirl: Do you really think the only reason most human beings denounce murder is because it says so in the Bible? Religion is NOT a neccesary part of ethics or morals.


Calm down, I'm not saying that I, personally think it is. But you're kidding yourself if you don't see that a significant percentage of people think "Cuz the Bible sez so!" is reason enough to pass any law.

My main point is: if you're politically married to people who want to legislate Biblical morality, you don't get to say "Except for the parts that tell us to share with others."

In a historical context, different parts of the Bible endorse anarchy, feudalism, despotism, theocracy, and anarcho-communism.

But you're right, the mainstream, well-funded sects of the Christian brand today tend to be less focused on obtaining secular power for themselves, and more about influencing secular policies by emphasizing selected passages to democratic voters. At least it's better than the old days of bloody revolutions.

If we could kick the Kentuckians out of Kentucky and fill it with the Welsh, it would be an advancement. Besides, I really want to hear Welsh spoken with a Kentucky twang.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers, to keep away from every brother who is idle and does not live according to the teachinga you received from us. 7For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you, 8nor did we eat anyone's food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. 9We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to make ourselves a model for you to follow. 10For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: "If a man will not work, he shall not eat."

11We hear that some among you are idle. They are not busy; they are busybodies. 12Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the bread they eat. 13And as for you, brothers, never tire of doing what is right.

14If anyone does not obey our instruction in this letter, take special note of him. Do not associate with him, in order that he may feel ashamed. ~2 Thessalonians 3

I bet the mom and the student are black and that is the reason for the overwhelming support and anger. Yeah the teacher was out of line big time, but what she did was pretty tame compared to all the teachers yelling at students who were anti-Obama. She also was kind of right about her parents dying though it was taken to the extreme. The law does have a fund treatment section where funding could be withheld if it is determined continued treatment would be of little benefit, but this is for Medicaid and Medicare members. I for one am more worried about all the taxes that will end up getting passed along to people buying private insurance.

I just had a revelation about the Red/Blue divide in America.

Laurel County Kentucky.

TFA notes how Romney got around 18,000 votes there to Obama's 3,000.

Of course, nationwide we know the numbers were pretty different, but in Rural Kentucky, almost everybody is a Republican and the Democrats are a tiny minority.

It's the Echo Chamber, playing out in the real world. Rural folks who never go to the heavily populated urban areas where Democrats have the bulk of their following.

No wonder they thought there was a "silent majority" who agreed with them and that ultimately Romney would win in a landslide. . .that's all many of these people see. They go to Church on Wednesday night and Sunday morning, and are surrounded by conservative Republicans. They go for a drive, and every other lawn has Romney signs, with Obama signs being very rare. They meet people at Wal-Mart or the local diner, and they all are Republican.

It would be pretty easy to ignore poll data and demographics saying that you were in the minority when all you saw in your everyday life was white, Christian Republicans.

Everybody they know voted for Romney, everybody they know hates Obamacare, most people they know are regular churchgoing Christians.

So, imagine what happens on Election Day when the numbers say they are in a minority. Total disbelief.

I have some beef with the Math Education and Physics Education majors I've encountered. Even though they take some, but not all, the same classes as ordinary math and physics students, they don't know the material nearly as well. Like, most of the math and physics ed students I've encountered were the poorest performing students in all the math and physics courses we had together. There is no way they know the material better than a genuine physics or math graduate.

Had a crazy feminist history professor, likewise had a far-right (authoritarian-leaning) government prof. Had no real issue with either. They kept their biases out of their grading and were ok with dissenting opinions. The far-right government prof would call me out in class because he knew I'd have a differing viewpoint to offer. Wasn't ever ridiculed or anything even when I'd take a purposely provocative stance.

There's a difference between professors that make their beliefs known and those that try to enforce their beliefs.
There's also a difference between those who are teaching adults and those who are teaching minors.

Personally I think that being exposed to different viewpoints and made to defend your own is healthy and helps you learn to actually think rather than simply parrot. This should be encouraged. That said, for cases where professors are trying to enforce adherence to their own views, well... every university has a chain of command. Properly handled even a single student can affect change. What did you do about the professor you had?

During the classroom discussion, Baker made remarks in class against same-sex marriage, Gilbert said.

Chelsea Gilbert, an admirer of Obama, told Baker she was offending people, Mary Gilbert said.

There are gay students in the class, Mary Gilbert said.

She said Baker responded by telling Chelsea she would someday have to take her parents to the emergency room and watch them die because of the president's health care reform law, commonly called Obamacare.

The exchange upset Chelsea, who came home crying, Gilbert said....School officials later told her Baker had apologized to Chelsea, but said she had thought Chelsea would be able to take a joke, Gilbert said.

Gilbert said Baker apologized to her as well, saying she considered the statement about Democrats a joke and that she put it on her board to share with a colleague and forgot to erase it.

No wasn't being racist just noting how it seems the people most offend by such matters tend to be black and support Obama because he is black then when you probe them for more details on their support they produce facts that are in correct or have no real answer. Maybe years down the road people will come to see just how worthless of a man he is.

HindiDiscoMonster: ssssmashing: Uncle Tractor: Also, the teacher was wrong, because you're not a real christian if you vote Republican:

He didn't say the state will take all your stuff and give it to the poor. There's a huge difference between charity and being compelled by the power of the sword to "give".

that is true... one has to have a soul and heart to be charitable in the first place.


Huh. The Republican party has no problem using the government to compel others to practice their religious beliefs.

Abortion, gay marriage, birth control, etc. etc. etc. ad nauseum.

So why do they have a problem with the state helping people who genuinely need help because charity clearly isn't fulfilling that need?

//Don't worry, we ALL know the answer, so no need to say anything.

Right is right. Good for the teacher. Liberals and democrats are definitely way down on the list of sentient life.

I'd like for schools (or somebody) to teach everybody that just because other people disagree with them, that doesn't mean they're being "bullied."

Not even when one of the people is a teacher and the other person is a student.

Yeah, what's wrong with a taxpayer funded public servant telling kids that they are destined to eternal damnation and torment unless they agree with her political beliefs?

I was offended that the teacher said things that are debatable in a class about critical thinking.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: I can't wrap my brain around stories like this. I mean, WTF was this "teacher" thinking when she did that? Send the kids home to enlighten their parents? Sway future voters? Did she believe there would be no repercussions? And if she believed there would be no repercussions, isn't she too farking stupid to be a teacher?

/WTF? on so many levels


Apparently you're not familiar with south-central Kentucky. Just a hair south of Lexington the climate changes from "religious/republican" to "batshiat crazy religious/republican"....and Lexington, although much better than the surrounding areas, isn't exactly a bastion of enlightenment. You can follow the KY border all the way up to the far eastern tip by VA and things just keep getting worse too.

This little bit of public derp caused a small commotion. If the teach instead wrote on the blackboard "you can't be a republican and have an ounce of sense" they would have found her mutilated burned corpse in the woods behind the school.

I love the nature foothills of the Appalachians, recreational lakes thanks to the corps of engineers, Cumberland falls, etc. If I didn't have kids that would have to attend school with the wingnuts who live there I'd probably move to the region. I just couldn't live with myself if I allowed my kids to grow up in that kind of environment.

Jim_Callahan: Okoboji: sithon: Even at 17 I would have destroyed this moron of a teacher in debate. I wonder where she got her degree from?. one of those diplma mills like oral robertsor bob jones.

In many states, you don't need a degree to be a teacher. Your chances of hire are greater if you have one, but you don't need one.

Um, no. In most states you no longer need an Education degree to be a teacher, just a Bachelor's or higher of any kind (or, in some states, of a kind related to the subject you'll be teaching if you're teaching high school).

This has little to do with lowering standards, and a lot to do with "Education" being one of those undergrad majors where you learn so little that you typically come out of the program knowing less than when you went in. They're the only programs in existence that make undergrad business look rigorous and difficult.

//I have no beef with education and business as masters+ disciplines, and the undergrads in the major are I'm sure fine people and fun to drink with, but that doesn't change the fact that the intellectual ability and education indicated by the BS/BA level of the credential is about on par with "GED".


The bullshiart involved in getting teaching credentials, coupled with low pay and dismal career prospects, were primary reasons I didn't pursue teaching (which at one point was my intent).

Agreed. But he also said to pay your damned taxes and quit whining.

Fade2black: Considering 90% of teachers and college professors are liberals who have a great platform of indoctrination to work with; I'm getting a kick out of how badly they foam at the mouth when they realize they let one slip through the cracks.


yeah, isn't it weird that people who have learned how to do research and apply reason and critical thinking tend not to fall for unsound ideologies dressed up in populist nonsense, especially when those moronic ideas are clearly targeted at the uneducated, the poor, and the gullible religious types.

Yeah, I think that's it. Although I listened to the recording somebody posted, and I don't remember it being that...lively. Maybe it was a different artist covering it.

Still, lots of lulz.

WorthNoting: Ilmarinen: WorthNoting: Rockstone: Even when I've had problems with teachers being liberal and flaunting it, they've never really gone to the lengths we see in this article

What about college professors asking if anyone in the class believes in God and then mocks those that do for the entire semester?

What about them? Where are they?

I personally had some of them as professors, so they do indeed exist.

Knew others who had similar college experiences - at different colleges than.the ones I attended.

Not sure why "where" matters. Public colleges in the United States.

As to "what about them"? Was just curious how others felt about professors who chose to do this.


I was privileged to know an award-winning educator, though I never had a class with him. His wife was in my arts class, so I often sat and chatted with the two of them after class. This particular prof was well known to challenge his students beliefs -- his class was reputed to be tough but never dull, and there was always a waiting list. He'd ask you what your beliefs were, and he'd challenge every one of them. Why? Because he believed that rote learning and religion as blind tradition were poisonous. He wanted his students to understand what they proported to believe, and to be able to defend those beliefs. He didn't care what you believed, but he wanted you to come by those beliefs honestly and OWN them. He challenged every christian denomination; he challenged would-be buddhists, atheists, agnostics, evangelicals, wiccans, catholics, and protestants alike. And yeah, he offended more than a few people, but many more walked out of his class with their lives changed and their minds expanded. Faiths were strengthened, or altered, or (more rarely) lost in that class. But by the end of it, his students knew what they believed and why they believed it.

He was also a minister. He believed his calling was to educate, and that the greatest gift god gave us was our ability to reason. Blind, unquestioning belief was the mark of the stupid, the willfully ignorant. It was the easy way out and an affront to the gift that sets us apart from animals.

He was a hell of a guy.

To be fair, Republicans can't either, since they have no souls.

This. Even if she believes that, she should have enough sense to not write that.


Still, teachers tend to be the bottom of the rung in society. Failing out of your business major? Become a teacher.

Wayne 985: ComicBookGuy: Pick: Considering there is no heaven, the statement is indeed true. Political affiliation does not matter, your not going there.

What was it like being dead, than coming back? Or are you just another arrogant know-it-all?

Why don't you consider Hades a valid belief? Or do you? Regardless, it's the same thing.


I don't know, and don't claim I do.
