Its hard to believe but a student at William C. Wood High School in Vacaville, California was reportedly was punished for saying 'Bless You.'
The teacher says the student disrupted his classroom
Its not got anything to do with religion, Wood High health teacher Steve Cuckovich told KTXL News in Sacramento. Its got to do with an interruption of class time.
Cuckovich reportedly took 25 points off the students grade - in an effort to deter other students from saying bless you.
The blessing really doesnt make sense anymore, Cuckovich explained. When you sneezed in the old days, they thought you were dispelling evil spirits out of your body. So they were saying, God bless you, for getting rid of evil spirits. But today, what youre doing really doesnt make sense.
I though it was because you caught the plague and were going to die, which is what this teacher should do.
I can no longer see any reason to send children to these fascist manufacturing plants.
What this lib-wad teacher needs is for every student in that school to make a point of saying “Bless You” to him for say - 100,000 times or until he admits he’s an idiot and apologizes.
Whichever comes first.
Perhaps the kid that sneezed was Chinese.......
California can tumble into the sea for all I care....but please wait until I move.
Next time Steve sneezes how about a quick FU!
Anyone surprised by this has had their head in the sand for the past 20 years.
“But today, what youre doing really doesnt make sense.
Screw you! (If I was a better Christian - bless you!)
What has that to do with what he says in school or anywhere? “It doesn’t make sense” - so you can’t say it?
Whether he sneezed or not.
Cuckovich needs to face a very, very angry father face to face...and receive some wall-to-wall counseling.
Since Sacramento was named after the Blessed Sacrament, l’m surprised to see him wearing that shirt.
they probably think it means some kind of berry or something...
He should’ve said “You’re SOOOOOOO good-looking!”
I hope that somebody follows up this report.
I guess teacher Cuckhold doesn’t appreciate a child wishing him well.
The next time, an ancient Egyptian curse might do in its place.
I hope Drudge gets ahold of this, this idiot needs to be humiliated.
You know, I have no idea whether to laugh at this or cry out in despair :(
