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
clowncar on fire: You can't go around firing people simply because they don't follow the same political philosopy as yourself
Well I'll vote for the guy that did over 300 drone strikes on people who haven't been tried in a court of law then.He sounds honest.
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.
werekoala: 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".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...It would be interesting to see if the GOP would choose tax cuts over gay-bashing or vice versa. Let me know how that works out for y 'all!
ComicBookGuy: HindiDiscoMonster: Fluorescent Testicle: [24.media.tumblr.com image 500x373]OMFG... I love that... Why have I never seen this before O_oA bumper sticker I would actually consider putting on my car...I am not sure it would be a wise move. You wouldn't want your car vandalized by "Christians."
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.
dickfreckle: See? I just did it up there! Motherf...If some liberal teacher had done the same...
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

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 articleWhat 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.

HotWingConspiracy: Point02GPA: At least the god fearing Republicans have never ran a presidential candidate that wasn't born on this continent.John McCain was born in Panama.
Silverstaff: 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 Christi ...
sodomizer: 99% of academia is liberal bullies who also tend to be atheistic.
Gordon Bennett: ck1938: ck1938: Homesexuals have nothing to be ashamed of. You sick fark democrats on the other hand....Homosexuals have nothing to be ashamed of either.Is there an echo in here?
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.
untaken_name: AverageAmericanGuy: Imagine theirs no heaven.Its easy if you try.
ThrobblefootSpectre: Heh, so many people responding to derogatory stereotyping of one group, with derogatory stereotyping of some other group, while pretending to be better than the teacher. This is why fark amuses me so./She shouldn't talk about a group of people that way! Southerners are so stupid!/thread full of bigots

Jon iz teh kewl: cause everything written on a chalk board is obviously truethere is no room for debate in schools.
Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Of course Democrats don't get to heaven. Heaven is for Ron Paul fans - it's a literal city of gold run by an absolute ruler.
Rapmaster2000: Who wants to go any place if it's filled with Republicans? Heaven sounds like Branson.
JackieRabbit: So I guess that, as an independent, Im going to have to settle for Nirvana. Too bad. I was kind of looking forward to those awesome wings, streets of gold and the land of milk and honey. But becoming spiritually one with all existence will have to do.

impaler: Matthew 7:3-53 "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
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.
pedobearapproved: Well high school teachers are tenured now, like professors.

Vangor: 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.Uh... this is high school, not university, which means I doubt you share the classroom with other teachers, so why would you have any reason to write this on the board in order to share with a colleague? Illogical excuse which conveys poor judgment while bringing to light other antagonistic issues within the classroom: why bother with this defense?
CheddarPants: 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."

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 levelsCareer 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.)
