Haha,

Junior budding Atheist gets a time out for forcing his beliefs onto others while belittling other tiny tots for their beliefs to the point of making them cry.

Poor baby got a time out, now the parents step in to teach him a lesson on self entitlement, suing for his first dollar on his way to becoming a life long sponge of other peoples money.

Welfare and Socialism, here he comes, for you to welcome him with open arms.


So ridiculous. Do you just sit around and wait for an opportunity to pounce on a post so that you can let everyone know for the 10,000 time how you feel about welfare, socialism, and anything else you consider "liberal"?

The level of misery that flows through some folks posts on here is just sad man. I'd give you a hug if I could amigo.


I did not reply to a person in this thread, I replied about the story that was posted the way that I see it.

You on the other hand, have just proven that you pounce on anyone who dares to oppose liberal socialist ideals.

The kid berated other children because his mommy and daddy told him there is no God.
He made them upset and crying in class.
He was given a time out for causing the disruption.
In comes the Atheist parents trying to make it about them vs God believers.

This is a form of tyranny, and it is happening in the classroom. Atheist parents getting their little brats to pick on religious brought up children so they can sue, get teachers fired, and further their agenda of getting all religious people out of public service. They want God hating pure Atheist teachers in every classroom, they probably want the State to take all the kids away from religious families. They want an Earth devoid of religion, and will push their agenda any way they can.

These people are Freedom haters.

This Country was founded by people escaping religious persecution, Atheism is today's equivalent of yesterdays inquisition.

Please show where in this narrative the child in question berated anyone. You're making that up and you know it.


He made them upset and crying in class.


One girl got upset and cried. One person was offended. There is no them. I thought it was somewhat isolated but seeing your responses, the immediate move to tears must be more common than I thought in you thin skinned folk who instead of turning the other cheek simply go into roid rage mode if offended by heathens.


He was given a time out for causing the disruption.


No. A time out is a few minutes. This was 3 days of no recess and lunch alone for a 7 year old. It's a little beyond the norm.


In comes the Atheist parents trying to make it about them vs God believers.


They don't have to do that though. People like you have already started the ball rolling long ago. The simultaneous Christian Superiority and Christian Persecution complexes see that that just fine.

Did you take the brown acid at Woodstock? Because I'm willing to bet that aside from your personal paranoia, you have absolutely zero facts to support your fictitious atheist conspiracy. It's a textbook presentation of a Christian Persecution complex. Seriously, you sound extraordinarily paranoid with that whole line of thinking. Help is a phone call away.


These people are Freedom haters.


Not at all. Nobody has removed freedom of religion. You can preach whatever you want in the privacy of your own home and I haven't read any reports of churches being forced to close. Pushing a religious agenda has no place in public schools and definitely has no place in the 1st grade. Other than no prayers or preaching in school, which had been ruled unconstitutional, no religious freedoms have been touched. Please show me how that statement is wrong though.

Perhaps some remedial history is in order for you. The first permanent settlement in what is now the U.S. was at Jamestown, not Plymouth where ironically, they were fleeing persecution from other narrow minded Christians. Jamestown was an entrepreneurial venture and had absolutely nothing to do with religious proclivities. But well done on blindly following a meme without seeing if it was based on fact!

At age six, I had an unhappy experience with a teacher which still has an effect on me, quite possibly out of proportion to what actually happened.

I remember I was at the back of the classroom putting my coat on when she asked me what my Christian name was. I didn't understand her at first, so she repeated the question, adding 'the name you were given when you were christened.'

I had a tendency to take things very literally, and answered not by giving her my name, but by saying, not impolitely, 'I wasn't christened.'

She turned bright red, and whacked me hard across the legs with a ruler, screaming 'you wicked child! you wicked child!'

I didn't say anything about this to my parents, and given the way in which children were routinely whacked and hollered at in English schools at the time (the early 1960s) I doubt that complaining would have resulted in anything other than a clip round the ear.

The sense of anger and injustice has stayed with me to this day.

This teacher needs to be fired immediately. Punishing a child for having different religious beliefs than you (or even most of the class) is literally a textbook 1st Amendment violation. ESPECIALLY in a public school. Luckily it doesn't seem like this is one of those insane school districts that is going to side with the teacher no matter WHAT the circumstances are:


In a statement, the school district suggested that the teacher had been wrong to single out the child.

“It is clear that it is not the province of a public school to advance or inhibit religious beliefs or practices. Under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution, this remains the inviolate province of the individual and the church of his/her choice,” the district declared. “The rights of any minority, no matter how small, must be protected.”


Would you feel the same if the child were passing out slips of paper with Bible verses? After all, some sects feel they must proselytize as part of their beliefs.


Kids witness for the Lord in Public School all the time. It's called freedom of speech....

Embarrassing a kid in front of classmates is a completely different situation.

How is it that Christians have forgotten to implement "What would Jesus do" in there dealings with there fellow men?
Read the Bible.Jesus said if they do not accept the Gospel knock the dirt off your shoes and move on.In other words IGNORE THEM.
Too many think that a Christian must be a doormat.The Bible is clear.Have nothing to do with non believers.
