Teacher Fired for Sharing Bible Verse

24th January 2013

Read it.

A New Jersey school board terminated a longtime substitute teacher on Jan. 15 because he shared a Bible verse in the course of a conversation with a student. After sharing the verse, the teacher offered the student a New Testament, which the student accepted.

The Phillipsburg School Board contends it fired Walter Tutka for violating school policies that stipulate a teacher must remain neutral when discussing religious materials and is prohibited from distributing religious literature on school grounds.

If it had been from the Koran, of couse, nobody would have dared say a word.

Lesson learned: Don’t live in New Jersey.

    **If it had been from the Koran, of course, nobody would have dared say a word.**

    Or the teacher would have been lauded as open-minded, courageous…

    **The Phillipsburg School Board contends it fired Walter Tutka for violating school policies that stipulate a teacher must remain neutral when discussing religious materials**

    So if your “religion” teaches you not to lie, steal or kill you have to remain neutral on these as well? This is the core of the Sandy Hook problem right here. When Johnny asks, “Why is it wrong to kill?” According to school policy Mr. Tutka would have to say, “I’m neutral on that question, Johnny.”
