Cuckovich sounds like a great teacher to me, one with a sense of humor and a way to drive a point home to the students. Maybe a bit idealistic, but his heart is in the right place. But the reader comments at the end article ... well ... I'm speechless. This has to go into the "quoted without comment" category. It speaks for itself.
redwhiteandblueuniverse: "Steve Cuckovich, Mind your own business and stop acting as though you have any authority ... Try pushing your personal beliefs on my child and I will beat your ass. Period, end of story."... and on and on and on.
rogers1756: "Amen. This teacher needs to be slapped off his mock pedestal of intellectual superiority. This is what the progressives would have if they had their way ... Typical Hillary fascist mind control ..."
genepagliari: "... who does this teacher think he is? We hire these people (teachers) to provide a service, nothing more."
jb.kibs: "'When you sneezed in the old days, they thought you were dispelling evil spirits out of your body.' Prove that. Prove it doesn’t make sense anymore. how the heck do you know that demons don’t exist? seriously, what is the proof, i have more proof they DO exist..."
texashunter: "Only in California.. That state needs to really fall off the map."
jsciw: "... If you send your kids to the state school you will get a state education — think Nazi youth movement."
morris: "This teacher must be one of Dictator Barack Hussein Obamas our Muslim. ... Their agenda is to take “OUR GOD” out of our America,and turn our America into a Communist,Socialist country with Islam Sharia-Law and the Muslim Brotherhood!! The complete Administration of Dictator Barack Hussein Obama is to destroy our Christian America ..."
olieman: "I think the phrase “School Teacher” is obsolete and is disrespectful. They should be called 'School Indoctrinators'."
jhrusky: "This is exactly why I homeschool, I DO NOT want anyone forcing their opinion, beliefs, morals, etc. on my child."
polwatcher: "The teacher is pushing his philosophy on the kids. That is what should be outlawed."
dnc taliban: "hey Cucko stop trying to impose your piverted socialist ideas on the kids just teach the curriculum. this teacher need to be fired."
impeach-bo: "These Islamic tyrants are trying to take over America."
cosette: "This is a sad commentary on Gods’ place in Obomanation. ..."
avengerk: "...this militant SOB wants to undermine the parents’ teaching, by imposing his own ideology on the students. It‘s truly Orwellian in it’s overtones…he’s essentially invoking “thoughtcrime” in order to cleanse even passing references to religion and so remove them from the public psyche. ..."
robert: "It is social engineering this dork desires not educating students."
intransigentmind: "Anybody who leaves their kids in public schools these days really ought to rethink that approach. It’s as good as subjecting their mind to LSD."
chazman: "… I’ve got an applicable punishment for this creep, and it isn’t 25 points off of anything … it just involves an extreme level of pain … it’s the only way to deal with Liberal Marxism …"
britlynz: "RE: 'Ass beating', That’s pretty much my initial reaction. I shamefully admit to have a weird fantasy about going to the hospital with one of these bullies. Specifically, to have my foot removed from their hindquarters."
And what's really scary is that I didn't filter this list much.
Is it any wonder we humanists, atheists, agnostics and even moderate Christians find these people scary? This is why we need public education – these people shouldn't be allowed to homeschool their children. They're scary ignorant.
