Qualified immunity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
So as I read it, the teacher was ruled to have been in the wrong, but he gets a pass since it had not been ruled on previously and he had therefore no clear way to know he was in the wrong.As outlined by the Supreme Court in Harlow v. Fitzgerald, 457 U.S. 800 (1982), qualified immunity is designed to shield government officials from actions "insofar as their conduct does not violate clearly established statutory or constitutional rights of which a reasonable person would have known."
Edit for accuracy: The court did not actually rule on whether he was in the wrong, but that since he was entitled to qualified immunity, there was no reason for the court to actually make a determination on the legality of his comments.
We executed that blasphemous Heretic Galileo for conflicting against scripture by claiming that the Sun stood still and that the Earth moved around the Sun.
Joshua 10:13 And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.
See, The scientist was wrong.
Let's not start that again. What true believer could possibly be so butt-hurt by a teacher saying creationism is nonsense? I know my faith can withstand much more than that. This is a case of religious people looking for a fight. Check history, it's a common trait of the hypocritical christian.
