    The opposite has been stated as unquestionable fact.

    I agree that the line on religious expression has been drawn too broadly. While I don't like the idea of mandatory prayers to Jesus, I think a moment to allow private prayer to the student's god of choice is fine. I also have no real problem with having a Bible Study club as long as it's voluntary.
    I see, so since you say that your 4th grade son gets it, everyone who has an issue with it is an idiot, immature or is biased?

    If I told you I love you then would that make me gay?

    No, I'm saying that by 8th Grade, most kids pretty much understand that there are gay people. They may not like that, but the idea that gay people exist shouldn't be news to them.

    Exactly. The opinion didn't fit with one student's idea of acceptable, so the teacher is suspended.



    So all you guys who are all about personal freedoms and the Bill of Rights think she got a raw deal, right?

    The classroom isn't a teacher's personal platform to espousr her political beliefs. The objective is to teach kids how to think, not what to think. As long as they're on my nickel, anyway.

    Based on what little I have read about it, yes.

    My statement was more about PC crap I general.

    Before you answer, keep in mind my interest in this thread is minimal at best.

    It wasn't the teacher that played the song. If you read the article, you'd know that a student asked permission to play the song. After making sure that it wasn't violent or explicit, she allowed it. One student played it, another student objected, and the teacher is the one who paid the price.

    I assume you have no issue with this teacher's suspension then:

    Unless she violated a very clear and widely-distributed school policy, then she should not have been suspended and may in fact have a cause of action against the school itself.
