Translation: DON’T YOU DARE MAKE A RELIGIOUS SYMBOL IN A PUBLICLY FUNDED INSTITUTION’S ART CLASS! ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?! GO HANG YOURSELF IN SHAME. IF YOU DON’T HAVE A ROPE JUST GO SIT IN THE KILN AND WE’LL TURN IT ON!
Atheist supremacists don’t mind the intolerance of their own theology.
People open your eyes. The progressive movement is anti-Christian. This is its raison d’etre. Everything else you see them attempt or succeed at is necessary to achieve this end. This is the one conspiracy theory that I truly believe in.

The swastika (Sanskrit svastika, "all is well") is a cross with four arms of equal length, with the ends of each arm bent at a right angle. Sometimes dots are added between each arm.
The swastika is an ancient symbol found worldwide, but it is especially common in India. It can be seen in the art of the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, Celts, Native Americans, and Persians as well Hindus, Jains and Buddhists.
The swastika's Indian name comes the Sanskrit word svasti, meaning good fortune, luck and well being.
In Hinduism, the right-hand (clockwise) swastika is a symbol of the sun and the god Vishnu, while the left-hand (counterclockwise) swastika represents Kali and magic. The Buddhist swastika is almost always clockwise, while the swastika adopted by the Nazis (many of whom had occult interests) is counterclockwise.
In Buddhism, the swastika signifies auspiciousness and good fortune as well as the Buddha's footprints and the Buddha's heart. The swastika is said to contain the whole mind of the Buddha and can often be found imprinted on the chest, feet or palms of Buddha images. It is also the first of the 65 auspicious symbols on the footprint of the Buddha.
The swastika has also often been used to mark the beginning of Buddhist texts. In China and Japan, the Buddhist swastika was seen as a symbol of plurality, eternity, abundance, prosperity and long life.
The swastika is used as an auspicious mark on Buddhist temples and is especially common in Korea. It can often be seen on the decorative borders around paintings, altar cloths and banners. In Tibetan Buddhism, it is also used as a clothing decoration.
Sounds just horrible! /s
What is wrong with these people? Every one of these so called "teachers" needs a basic class on understanding the constitution.
and so are plus signs, looks like they'll have to ban addition from Math classes.
Not that it will make much difference, most kids with a Liberal edumacation, can't add, spell or read well anyway.
I agree and the class should be held out back behind the dumpsters and Pauly "Walnuts" should be the instructor.
The NEA and its members are simply EVIL.
They will support and promote every deviancy, obscenity and immoral act or deed in their instruction and indoctrination of your children.They are the Democrats foot soldiers in establishing the New Religion of Government is god..
The liberal cancer has metastasized from the Ivy Leagues to the community colleges as well.
The only difference is that the profs at the Ivy Leagues are smart enough to cover up their nonsense with sophism. The community college profs aren’t bright enough to make an intellectual defense of their politically correct beliefs.
Other than their offerings in hard science, mathematics, and technology, the community colleges are becoming wastelands of low-octane political correctness.
Not just anti-Christian:
“During the fall 2009 semester, Mitchell said he was constantly asked by his instructor whether he would be creating religious projects. He created a ceramic Israeli Coat of Arms, including a Menorah, to give to a Jewish friend. After the piece had been fired, he said his instructor, Chris Blackburst, asked if she could take a look at it.
“She told Mr. Mitchell that it ‘should never have made it through [the firing process]’ due to the religious content,” according to the complaint.”
“”When Mr. Watral saw it, he physically recoiled in disgust, throwing his arms up into the air.””
Perhaps Mr. Watral is an undead-American.
May all the clueless idiots involved reap abundantly what they have sown with much interest, if they refuse to confess, repent, and recant.
May every Christian in their classes wear T-shirts with vigorous Gospel messages and crosses to every class.
May all their Christian friends and relatives castigate them wholesale and relentlessly.
May they be humiliated in every area of their lives.
The progressive movement is anti-Christianunchristian.

Do unto others, especially if they look hot or if they have money to steal.
