Missing in this article is the teacher, who is also a preacher, lying about what he said and did until confronted with the tapes. We do get that he told his class: Noah had dinosaurs on his Ark, the Big Bang is a dud of a theory, evolution is garbage, only Christians may enter in heaven and that this Muslim girl everybody in class knows is going to Hell.
Of course, the agnostic student who taped this is really going to Hell. The student has asked for an apology. The school district has provided a lawyer - for the teacher. The student has received death threats. The school district has praised the teacher's record.
Letters from former students - the one who wants to be a teacher has a distorted view of American history because of this teacher.
