Apparently they think their "1st Amendment" rights (to spray a fellow teacher with a squirt bottle) were violated - but apparently they weren't violating hers by attacking her for expressing her religious views. :rofl

BTW, why is it that these self-professed "Christian" bytches are always fat? Isn't gluttony a sin?

Sounds like assault, to me, and grounds for termination.

Case closed.

Next?

They should be fired. Period. I would have said the same if an atheist walked in and did it to a Christian.

actually, that does deserve to be looked into
if the teacher was educating rather than proseletizing atheistic views, then no harm done
but if she is found to have been advocating an athiest viewpoint, then that is no different than a teacher advocating the adherance to any particular religion

That's fair. The NBC video made it seem like it was a class discussion on atheism not so much proseletizing. But if she were, then that's something which would need to be handled as well. From the tone of the video, it sounds more like some teachers didn't particularly like the atheist dialog and embarrased the teacher in an unprofessional manner while she was teaching. If that is the case, then the actions taken were just.

If she was preaching atheist views, ok. But it's not clear if that was what was going on. Also, it takes no faith to not believe in a god.

She wasn't the one who committed assault.

edit: Wait, are you suggesting we should make expressing your religious views illegal?

Actually, the Christian teachers have the right to spray water all they want, but if they spray water on someone else, without their permission, then they have violated that person's right to their wish to not be sprayed. All rights are based on property, and someone's body is his or her own property. It takes a Liberal to want to see the person who was violated fired too, 'ya Liberal. :mrgreen:

If she wasn't preaching and merely discussing yes I agree.

LOL Assult with a bottle of water. Now thats rich. And thats assuming she is telling the truth. The other teachers deny doing it.

Yes thats exactly what I said. You do love fabricating the truth about your opponent don't you?

Of course it does. You cannot prove God doesn't exist so if you believe He doesn't that requires faith.

#1 I never said if they did this they didn't voilate the law.

#2 Of course it isn't liberal to want to keep an athiest teaching athiesm in a public school. What exactly are you smoking today? New supplier?

So you approve that this Christan teacher assaulted a person, because of their beliefs? I thought the continuation was something that the conservatives fought for instead it looks like you are someone who is a hypocrite.

I love how that teabrain hag is trying to spin it as a 'breach of the first amendment'. No, dummy, it's not. Try again.

The Freedom to upbraid a fellow teacher in front of students?-- that's covered under which amendment.

Can't the tea party at least try to be consistent and back things that aren't far-right issues.

It is Liberal to interpret the Constitution is a loose constructionist way, which is exactly what you are doing.
