    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?

    Do people actually believe this?

    no.... it doesnt require faith to not believe in something that cant be proven.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    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.

    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.
