  •  Taking advantage (8+ / 0-)

    A teacher who teaches his own religious beliefs to his class, such as by teaching creationism in science class, is like a teacher who dates his students.   He is abusing his authority, and taking advantage of the students.     A teacher is only authorized by parents and the school to teach the subject that they are assigned to teach.    A public school science teacher has not been authorized to teach religion to the kids.  The teacher does have a right to free speech outside the classroom, but the teacher does not have a right to teach religion to other people's kids who have not given permission for that.  

    It's like hiring a babysitter, and coming home to discover that she is engaging your children in a Satanic ritual, or teaching your kids cuss words.
