Posted on 04/02/2008 5:40:59 PM PDT by Saoirise
A student and his family have filed a federal lawsuit demanding that a popular European history teacher at California's Capistrano Valley High School be fired for what they say were anti-Christian remarks he made in the classroom.
Chad Farnan, a 16-year-old sophomore, says the teacher, James Corbett, told his students that Jesus glasses obscure the truth and suggested that Christians are more likely than other people to commit rape and murder.
Farnan recorded his teacher telling students in class: What country has the highest murder rate? The South! What part of the country has the highest rape rate? The South! What part of the country has the highest rate of church attendance? The South! Farnan said he took the tape recorder to class to supplement his class notes.
It was very hard for me because its like basically telling me all this stuff that Ive believed my whole entire life its just basically trying to throw it out the window, Farnan told FOX News.

Hey, Jesus Glasses! I want some! — where do I get ‘em?
What an intellectual specimen. With minds like this informing our kids no wonder the US educational system compares so favorably with other countries.
We can rest easy, our future is assured.
What a slacker. He could have pinned global warming on the Christians too. After all, what part of the country has the hottest weather? The South!
The teacher is either stupid or a liar. I suspect the latter. Any student of logic would immediately recongize his comment for what it is, a deliberate attempt to mislead by using false analogy.
I’m pretty good at geography.
Exactly what country is “The South”?
The teacher should be sued for gross stupidity.
This is one time when I actually applaud the use of the liberal’s dehumanizing “sensitivity training” classes, that requires participants to submit to the preachy and unenlightened moralizing of a smarmy, over-employed social services eunuch.
It is the rare person who can pass through such an experience without imagining savaging the instructor with a claw hammer.
I think you find them in your Bible or at your local traditionally minded church.
Welcome to public school. Those with sense, reason, and knowledge of facts need not apply.
Did the South rise again and become the CSA while I was in the shower?
That is interesting, what “south”? Crime rates in the “south” that I live in are a lot lower than most of the “north” country. see, Detroit.
Unfortunately, the best predictor of crime rates is the proportion of the population that is black. But the teacher would never, never, never go there.
As another poster said recently, public education should be like public housing- a choice of last resort.
“Those with sense, reason, and knowledge of facts need not apply.”
Disagree. Instead of ceding this territory, it’s time to take back our schools and make them bastions of learning instead of indoctrination.
This man was the single opinion heard in his classroom for so long that he thought that his was the only one. He just learned his mistake.
To paraphrase the popular Ed McMahon,
“HEEERRREEES’S, ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL!!!!!!”
I’m generally not a big fan of lawsuits but I think it’s disgusting how teachers can take minds full of mush and indoctrinate them in their favorite theory. This is hate speech as much as anything else. Imagine if he had been talking about blacks this way!
It’s a lot more than just this one. I went through the TN Stalinist indoctrination system. Facts and truth took a back seat to propaganda and lies.
