Ala. coach suspended after Michelle Obama, gay rant
The Washington Times

An Alabama high school coach and teacher has been suspended from coaching football for 10 days and from teaching his psychology class for the rest of the year, because he was recorded by a student ranting against the first lady and homosexuals. ...

Holy sweet Alabama, Batman! :nuts:

Can't you just build a fence, keep those people in there so they don't get out and bite anyone else?

Keep Florida, the weather's nice, but toss the whole Gulf Coast otherwise. "The Free and Sovereign State of Dirtapoor."

So is Arizona, but we don't want to keep that one.

I went to grade school in Alabama. I remember a teacher being bitter about the Civil War, and she said that the South would rise again. A common motto down there. Now, I'm not of the opinion that the war was fought over freeing slaves, or that the North was justified in invading the seceding states, but when you start getting individual teacher ideology mixed in with lesson plans, you end up with a {!#%@} education.

We even see it on the other end of the spectrum, in our community. A bunch of New Age hippies in a community may approve of New Age hippie teachers teaching BS to their kids, but the kids turn out just as stupid, and intolerant as some hillbilly kids in Alabama. The whole hippie liberal acceptance of everyone, and all ways of life, turns into absolute intolerance of anyone that says there is no such thing as ghosts.

Well, the guy thought he was safe in a community of bigots, and he got nailed. Good for the student that got the recording and did something about it. When all the news is about bullies preying on the weak, at least we get a few that are about reason and courage.
