Hey teacher/preacher leave those kids alone!

The eight year old son of a friend came home recently from a school in Beijing distressed because his dad was going to hell. His mother is upset and enormous stress has been placed on the family by the incident. Why was this child disturbed? Because his irresponsible prosthelyzing teacher told him dad’s trip to hell was pretty much inevitable.

Reminds me of this event… ‘David Paszkiewicz of the Kearny School District faces public scrutiny over religious discourse delivered in his high school history class. One of his students, Matthew LaClair, broke the story by providing taped recordings of Paszkiewicz's lectures. In September 2006, the teacher spoke on the fallacies of evolution and described dinosaurs as present on Noah's Ark. He continued telling his students that, "If you reject his [Jesus] gift of salvation, then you know where you belong ... If you reject that, you belong in hell."’ (1)

When will these subverters of the young be stopped.

If you are as outraged by this ‘teacher’s’ lousy behaviour as I am or you have your own experiences to recount, please comment below.

Its been a while since I’ve written I guess because I no longer live in Indonesia and I suppose the lack of a manic mullah screaming a call to prayer through a loudspeaker five times a day has made my environment a little more real.
