ya but what you seem to not understand is that, if a biology teacher is not teaching the class properly and if a student is offended because the teacher decides to do jokes and mock about Christianity, well then I hope
they had their laugh, because that kinda crap could and would get them fired. it's biology class, not "hey i wanna tell jokes and mock a religion and see if i can offend somebody" kinda class.

New Thread Topic for Amen
I suggest a thread in "Social Issues and Creation/Evolution".
In your proposed opening post you should describe the circumstances in the classroom. What started the particular problem withe details like what the teacher said and what you said.
If you have any questions (like "Whaddya think?" ) you can add them. But, , around here you will hear what people think anyway.

I was wondering that, too, but reading his subsequent posts, I think that Amen is saying that a biology teacher was actually mocking Christians.

It has become fashionable on the left and in Western Europe to compare the Bush administration to the Nazis. The comparison is not without some superficial merit. In both cases the government is run by a small gang of snickering, stupid thugs whose vision of paradise is full of explosions and beautifully designed prisons. -- Matt Taibbi

We will see
It remains to be seen however he has also claimed that two biology teachers were killed for teaching evolution "out in the country" so it will be interesting to see what this story is.

I was using my own faith for example, but yes Chiro, I believe its mainly mocking Christians. It's not just Christians though, there are other religions and beliefs that do worship the same God. It seems to me that when I was in Biology, we had a discussion about abortion...... yes thats right. I have acouple of questions.
1. are biology teachers crossing the line, when mocking creationism (also believers in God) in a class room? I seriously believe these teachers are doing a lot more then just teaching, but more along the line of promoting it! it looks like a biology teacher is not only teaching so these kids can learn but what to believe. If your saying bad things about something(exp:religion) that student is going to want what you(evolutionist) offer. In the eyes of some parents thats called tampering with the childs Diciplinary ruotine. Evolution supports no God! God hates abortion, it is a sin, it is murder, and it is bad, therefor why would a public school teacher talk about abortion and say they are for it, but the parents are against it. Do you think paganism and atheism is reaching into public schools threw evolutionist? well dont paganism and atheism have something in common with evolution? yes they are against the same thing, There is no God, there is no spiritual forces, there is no heaven, there is no hell, and everything in the bible is a lie! The public school is to teach math,science,enlgish,critical thinking ect.... AND THERE SHOULD NOT BE TEACHERS BRINGING WHAT THEY BELIEVE AND TALKING OR MOCKING OTHER INDIVIDUALS BELIEFS! THESE KIDS DONT DO THAT IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS IF THEY DO THAT JUST GOES TO SHOW HOW IMMATURE THAT TEACHER REALLY IS! a classroom subject should be like a forum topic. the person who made the topic should stay on tobic, not go off it!
