A High School teacher in Kearny New Jersey was caught teaching more religion than history in his classes. Among other teachings was that if you didn't accept Jesus you go to Hell and the "unscientific" theories of the Big Bang and evolution. A student was shocked when his instructor concentrated more on Jesus, Heaven and Hell than American history and started recording his lessons. During a much delayed meeting between the student and school officials to discuss his complaints the teacher, also a Baptist minister, denied he taught religion in class. Then the student produced the CDs. The School Superintendent has praised the teacher and kept him teaching history although promising some future corrective action. Shouldn't the preacher have automatically been fired when he lied during the investigation? Are you surprised this Baptist preacher lied? Shouldn't his church question his lying? Link from Jim.
