This has nothing to do with religion, this is just censorship. People
should be allowed to read whatever they want to read, whenever they want,
wherever they want. Also that teacher sounded like an asshole on a power
trip in the call, so I’m opposed to her on principle.
Sure it’s “Free reading”, but thinking back to my school days.. I imagine
there are parameters to what they’re allowed to read. You aren’t allowed to
read magazines, children’s books, technical manuals, cereal boxes,
dictionaries or bibles…
They generally ask you to pick a novels fit for your reading level in
junior high and high school reading classes in my experience.
The teacher was right because the school is a public place and the courts
have ruled that the school and religion are to be separate. Its a public
place but, the teachers have administrative authority over the students in
school that is what the courts have ruled. The teacher has that authority
to do this but, this is a hot button issue and if her superior is standing
do you really want a kid reading a bible in class because the administrator
might think that she is teaching the bible in the classroom. Its justified
because she doesnt want to get in trouble and lose her job i can respect
Love Jaclyn she’s awesome
Not sure where the teacher was coming from on this. Even though I have no
respect for religion in any sense, I think it’s kind of messed up. If that
free reading time though only included select books then I understand. If
she was doing this to try and turn the kid away from religion she made a
big mistake, because one of the best ways to turn someone atheist is to
have them read the bible.
I believe it is because it wasn’t on the curriculum.
But here their okay with teaching with Scientology in class’s room but they
don’t wanna teach the bible science is based off a lot ifs there’s no way
you can prove it.i think teaching the big band theory is like forcing there
thoughts and beliefs on what they believe in that’s kinda still forcing
religion on teens in high school in my personal opinion they should allow
the bible or any other religion to be thought in school if evolution.
Maybe Cara and Jaclyn should do Fusion, so we can get…uh, Jaclara, I
Progressiveness at its finest!
Cara did well on this debate.
This was so awesome, thanks for having me on! :)
The child was told specifically to not listen to the teacher if told to put
the book away by their parents.
If the kids parents want to brainwash their child to such an extent that
they are being told to ignore authority then that’s definitely something
that shouldn’t be allowed in the classroom.
Alright, I love Cara and technically she’s correct, it is my constitutional
right to read The Holy Bible and profess myself a Christian, but she seems
to miss the point about context. I believe that what this teacher is afraid
of is that kids will neglect social activities if they read holy books at
school, I’ll be stuck reading the Bible while the others make friends
because that’s what my parents told me to do, and you’re saying this can’t
be prevented because of the first amendment.
Yeah, you cant do that. This is a thought crime. It’s like banning Harry
The bible is not magic lmao haha wow know your facts before you go based of
assumption in what you have heard from other.the way science is portrayed
evolution is magic that’s what I think in my mind lol.i didn’t come from no
monkey lol do you see how dumb that sounds.
If this played out the way it seems to have played out, this is a clear
violation of the 1st amendment. That a teacher did this is depressing. I
just assume she failed social studies.
Btw, Jesus is most likely non-historical. There are no contemporary
accounts of this person whatsoever.
yeah, far as I am concerned, a kid shouldn’t be reading it in school just
like kids shouldn’t be reading 50 shades of grey in school. It is (by all
accounts) a book that kids shouldn’t be reading due to it’s nature. Having
it be a religious document is irrelevant, the contents is what should
If this child wants to read a bible, he should do it at home where it
belongs. Religion has NO PLACE in the outside world. Keep that bullshit in
the homes of the idiots that are stupid enough to believe it.
Since the bible advocates murder, it might not be appropriate for school.
Playboy advocates sex, is it going to be allowed? Murder is harmful, sex
is not. We are a FUBAR’d people at times.
Dam Dave for a guy guy you sure can get the Hotties.
Smart chick’s are super hot.
Schools have a duty to protect both a student’s education and the learning
environment. All religion has to be banned from all educational
establishments with students under the age of 18.
Christianity is evil, we of the Pastafarian faith promote peace, harmony
and ample mozzarella for all through our worship of the almighty Flying
Spaghetti Monster (may cheese be upon him), proof for the existence of the
one true God can be witnessed in virtually any Italian restaurant. If you
don’t believe in the FSM (MCBEH) you will be tortured for eternity in a
lake of fettuccine with yellow squash and Parmesan-lemon cream sauce! you
have been warned!
no way. a bible shouldnt be allowed in a public school. he can “free read”
it in private.
Another Fahrenheit 451? Maybe hypocritical but Im all for burning all
bibles, Qurans etc. As having a god just eliminates the need to think.
Would a comic book have been allowed reading material? My assumption is no,
where do we draw the line between comic books and religious texts…. the
comic book is arguably even more educational.
