    The "Jesus Fish" was how early Christians were able to tell others that they were Christians. Christianity was heavily persecuted, and Christians would draw the Jesus Fish in the dirt in front of secret places of meeting so that they could enter and not risk having guards or law enforcement from coming in and arresting everyone for their faith.

    If I remember correctly, Pagans used the symbol as did other cultures. A lot of people think the ichthys is a Christian symbol.

    And it appears to have had very little to do with fish

    Actually the common belief in the Christian community, is that the fish symbol was adopted because of what Jesus told the disciples who were fishermen: "Come with me, and I will make you fishers of men," (a reference to the evangelical calling of the apostles, to find and convert those who would believe.)

    I always assumed it was in reference to the loaves-and-fishes miracle thingie.

    Legally it's assault. They had no business trying to silence her just because they disagree with her views and hate the 1st Amendment. You also have no proof that she was proselytizing her atheism in the class. Just saying "I'm an atheist" isn't proselytizing.

    And thats assuming she is telling the truth. The other teachers deny doing it.
    They said it was perfume, not water.

    I thought "holy water" was a Catholic thing. Only.
    And Catholics typically aren't big proselytizers. It's not like they go around trying to get people to join their church. Converting to Catholicism is a tedious and time-consuming process.
    None of this "Just accept Christ as your Lord and Savior, yay now you're one of us, welcome to the club" malarkey for Catholics.

    Also, I'm not sure how one would go about obtaining holy water, even if one were Catholic.
    It's kept in a font attached to the wall near the entrance of the sanctuary. One dips one's fingers in it and crosses oneself.
    One doesn't fill up one's Super-Soaker 5000 with it.

    So I imagine they're telling the truth; it probably wasn't holy water.

    Very true, Catholics don't proselytize and it would be sacrilegious to to put Holy Water in a squirt gun. Catholicism has stricter etiquette and even liberal Catholics would never disrespect Holy Water.

    As far as obtaining Holy Water, Catholic Churches have a Holy Water urn with a spigot for the faithful to take as they wish.
