    Louisiana School District About to Get Smacked Down

    A public school in Louisiana allegedly advised a Buddhist family to change their beliefs if they didn’t want their child to face harassment from zealous teachers.

    The American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Louisiana on Wednesday filed a federal lawsuit against Negreet High School in Sabine Parish on behalf of two parents, Scott and Sharon Lane, and their son, “C.C.” The lawsuit claims the school has “a longstanding custom, policy, and practice of promoting and inculcating Christian beliefs,” including the teaching of creationism.

    Sixth-grade teacher Rita Roark has told her students that the universe was created by God about 6,000 years ago, and taught that both the Big Bang theory and evolution are false, according to the lawsuit. She told her students that “if evolution was real, it would still be happening: Apes would be turning into humans today.”

    --snip--

    When the outraged parents confronted Sabine Parish Superintendent Sara Ebarb about the incidents, she allegedly told them “this is the Bible belt” and that they “shouldn’t be offended” to “see God here.” Ebarb advised that C.C. should either change his faith or be transferred to another District school where “there are more Asians.”

    Don?t want to be hassled by creationist teacher? Give up Buddhism, Louisiana public school says | The Raw Story
    Go be Buddhist someplace else???

    Imagine the rage Christians would be vomiting out right now if the religions were swapped around...


    The science teacher teaches that the world is 6000 years old. She teaches that "If evolution was real, it would still be happening: Apes would be turning into humans today".

    This so-called "teacher" ought to be fucking flogged in the public square, right after they strip her of her teaching credentials. And the school district administrators can join her.

    This happens daily to Christians, they are told to ignore their beliefs.

    Now other people know the persecution they face and hopefully they will have more sympathy.

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

    You let them come for Christians, then your religion might be next.

    Something to think about. Buddhists did not speak out when Christians were under attack and now they find themselves victims also.

    Ironic isn't it?

    So which public schools in this country are promoting Buddhism and telling Christians to change their faith? I am sure you have a link?

    More bullshit. I am a Christian.

    Please, show us all where Christians are being persecuted or oppressed in this country by any other religious group.

    I don't think you can do it.

    No, but you sure as fuck are.

    Christ, can you do anything except troll these boards anymore? You're not even clever about it.

    What you are, is fucking pathetic.

    You can't be a Christian and be a liberal.

    Its simply not possible. Your one of those guys who probably goes to Church so his neighbors don't think he's strange.

    Ah, so now you're an expert on what defines Christianity? Sounds to me that it's more like you're (please note correct usage) telling someone else what he's allowed to believe. That whole freedom of religion thing is such a pain for you, isn't it?

    Ask me if I give a fuck what you believe, troll.

    I know what I am. You on the other hand, don't have a fucking clue.

    I couldn't agree more...this is a PUBLIC school?

    One test she gave to students asked: “ISN’T IT AMAZING WHAT THE _____________ HAS MADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” The correct answer was “Lord,” but C.C. wrote in something else. Roark responded by scolding the boy in front of the entire class.

    When informed that C.C. was a Buddhist and therefore didn’t believe in God, Roark allegedly responded, “you’re stupid if you don’t believe in God.”

    On another accusation, she allegedly described both Buddhism and Hinduism as “stupid.”

    “The treatment this child and his family have endured is not only disgraceful, it’s unconstitutional,” said Heather L. Weaver, senior staff attorney for the ACLU Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief.

    The lawsuit claims that other teachers and faculty members also push Christian beliefs on their students. Prayer is often lead by teachers in classrooms and during school events. Religious literature that denounces evolution and homosexuality has been distributed by faculty members to students. The school’s hallways are filled with Christian iconography and electronic marquee in front of the school scrolls Bible verses.
