South Carolina Atheists

Connect with fellow freethinkers and skeptics in the palmetto state. It's difficult to be a religious minority in the bible belt, and we need to reach out to each other and let each other know we're here!

saying things like she was able to "shame her students", calling it a hate crime... saying she wouldnt let the incident go unpunished....
she even called the kids cruel and ignorant. (for what i can find... i cant find the actual facebook page)

the humble opinion of this atheist is that she handled a stupid situation in the worst way possible... furthermore she didnt leave in in the class.. she took it public.

kids can wear jesus shit to school... kids can read the bible... hell im sure kids can sing jesus loves me (as long as it isnt interrupting anything).
kids can give you a bible, kids can make comments about you, and none of that should matter.
an educators job is to educate, not police the religious beliefs or actions of their students.

and our educators should be intelligent enough to realize that even though they are in high school they dont have to act like high schoolers.


having said that i dont think my opinion will be set in stone until i can read what was actually written... or at least hear her side of the story, which im sure wont come out until the school board decides her fate.
thanks for posting this article root, it was interesting.

Take a look at the comments.. The one's they seem so upset about weren't made by her but by others. She never even wrote a child's name.

@root she is suspended with pay pending investigation because of comments she made on facebook.

An eight-grade teacher in North Carolina was suspended after students disrupted her classes with proselytizing and harassment.

Melissa Hussain teaches eight-grade science at West Lake Middle School in Apex, NC. Some of her students challenged her with Christian beliefs when she taught a lesson on evolution.

not a big PZ fan, Jason. I'll be interested to hear how it was if you are going, though.

Anyone going to see PZ at USC tomorrow (Tuesday)?
