This shocking news just crossed my desk, and needless to say I was shocked - SHOCKED - by this shocking news!
sued by parents of one of his students for the alleged crime of teaching perfectly valid alternative science to his eighth-grade students.
Among the allegedly "objectionable" alternative science lessons taught by Freshwater were Creationism, Intelligent Design, the Inherent Faultiness of Evolution, and How To Burn Crosses In Your Arm With a Van de Graaff Generator. The anti-freedom plaintiffs in the lawsuit are suing both Freshwater and the Ohio school district, and are attempting to use the power of activist judgmanship to get the poor innocent teacher fired.
This is an outrage!
This entire case is nothing more than premeditated character assassination by the evolutionists, persecuting a poor embattered teacher for teaching perfectly valid science topics. Creationism and Intelligent Design are widely-recognized scientific-like theories backed by mountains of hypothetical evidence. And burning a cross on a student's arm with a Van de Graaff generator teaches an important lesson in not sticking your arm in a Van de Graaff generator.
If this outrageous case goes to trial, it will be the Scopes Monkey Trial of the 21st Century. Only this time it is the monkeys who are doing the prosecuting.
