Supreme Court: OK to fire teacher for 'religious symbols'

The Ohio Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that Mount Vernon City Schools properly fired middle school science teacher John Freshwater because his refusal to eliminate religious symbols from the classroom — excluding his Bible — was insubordination.

While the school district unconstitutionally overstepped its bounds in ordering Freshwater to remove his personal Bible from his desk, it properly told him not to “engage in any activity that promotes or denigrates a particular religion or religious beliefs while on board property, during any school activity” or when he was teaching, the court declared today. ...

Display of posters on a classroom wall are for one purpose, teaching. Teaching whatever the content of the posters.

He was fired for insubordination. That's all. The court ruled he wasn't protected by the first amendment because he *wasn't* using them in the exercise of religion:

From the news, quote from the chief justice: "Freshwater’s First Amendment rights did not protect the display of these items,” O’Connor wrote, “because they were not a part of his exercise of his religion. Freshwater’s willful disobedience of these direct orders demonstrates blatant insubordination.”

So he got fired for possession, not use.

"The Ohio Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that Mount Vernon City Schools properly fired middle school science teacher"

The Ohio Supreme Court and the Mount Vernon City School are working against God and serving Satan.

May God have mercy on their souls.

This is totally ridiculous. The Ohio Supreme Court along with Mount Vernon, Ohio City Schools are in league with Satan for violating that teacher's First Amendment Freedom of Religion rights.
