    Man cannot determine , to the satisfaction of all, what is , and what is not "Christian"..
    IMO, that so-called Christian school is not Christian, but a cult.
    I'm thinking that she was "fired" without sufficient provication....but, its too late for that...
    So, lets bring on the lawyers and go sue happy again.
    Guess who pays for all this hatred and stupidity ?
    The woman should have given the boss of that school the Bible, with verses about "forgiveness" underlined....

    It is amazing all of mankind can't figure out "what is, and is not Christian" but you seem to have above all others figured it out.

    The School is a cult because they stand by their moral principals as laid down by the Bible? They are a cult because they legally enforced their rules? Interesting.

    Well offer up some evidence supporting your theory. I have offered up Florida law to back my position showing the school was justified.

    Since it is a civil case involving a private school, that would be the litigants.

    She should have got the heave hoe and taught to accept the responsibility's of her actions.

    That might backfire though. The school could underline the parts about stonings, and when they should be administered. The bible is just a big grey mass of text, that supports and disagrees with the same things. I suppose, that is how the Christians managed to gain so many followers.

    Jesus never did go into "punishment" details, as I recall.
    IMO, the woman's embarrassment should be sufficient....after all, who was hurt?

    Stealing ?
    Completely return that value, plus, listen to a sermon and worse of all, never be trusted...

    Man is supposed to be smart enough to administer punishment withOUT torture.....right??

    Yes, it was already clear that you think punishment is important...

    The bible does though. Stonings mostly, and they are mostly done to women for things to do with having sex, or not screaming loud enough(in objection, rather than pleasure, I presume) when somebody is raping her.

    You would be wrong:

    Mark 9:43-47 (King James Version)

    43And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

    44Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

    45And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

    46Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

    47And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:


    He also supported the Mosaic law.

    The credibility of a Christen school, they want to set a good moral example for the children and community. As they are supposed to.

    I challenge anyone to make sense of that.

    So now being fired is torture? And you call them a cult?

    He who spareth the rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him correcteth him betimes" (Proverbs 13:24) and "Withhold not correction from a child: for if thou strike him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and deliver his soul from hell." (Proverbs 23:13-14)

    Who says we can't bypass punishment? Christ did exactly that. Or can't we use the actual words and deeds of Christ to back up "Christianity"?

    Jesus did nothing of the sort, he hung on the cross....the harshest form of punishment at the time.
