What on Earth?! This is absolutely insane!
An Ohio science teacher has been fired for not only attempting to preach Christian beliefs to his classes, but for taking it even further by using a scientific device to BURN the image of a cross into his students' arms!
The Mount Vernon school board reportedly attempted to have him dismissed after complaints that John Freshwater kept a Bible on his desk, but for some crazy reason he was able to successfully appeal the ruling.
However, after news came to light about the cross burnings, the school board accepted a state official's recommendation to terminate him last night, effective at midnight.
Unbelievable. So many layers of absolutely unbelievable.
What makes anyone think that they have any business forcing their beliefs on anyone else, let alone taking advantage of their position as an authoritarian and forcing young students to listen to it?!
We're not even going to TOUCH the fact that essentially branded kids!
That man should not be allowed ANYWHERE near children, let alone work again as a teacher!
