Wake County middle school teacher suspended for venting about her bible-thumping students on Facebook:
"Today a student left a brand new bible on my desk with an anonymous card that said 'Merry Christmas; with 'Christ' underlined and bolded," Hussain wrote. "I can't believe the cruelty and ignorance of people sometimes."
Hussain later goes on to accuse her students of spreading rumors that she's a Jesus hater. She complains about the students wearing Jesus shirts, singing "Jesus Loves Me" and reading the Bible in class.
At first glance, this appears to be a teacher vs student controversy, but comments from some of the parents indicate they may have been involved, as well:
Parents of Hussain's students said she didn't help things by throwing in the trash a postcard containing the picture of Jesus and by sending students to the office who mentioned God during a discussion of evolution.
I know that some places are characterizing it as a Muslim vs. Christian fight based on her last name. But all of the parents I spoke to said she's more likely a secular humanist.
While Secular Humanism is an actual movement with followers, it's also a popular flogging horse for fundamental/activist Chistians. If those parents were aware that their children were tormenting this teacher, and they did nothing to discourage said behavior, the parents themselves should be elevated to the top of the "who was most wrong" list.
