Mean ACLU Sues Teacher For Trying To Shame Atheist Child Into Heaven
Get out your Teacher Of The Year ballots, we have a nominee to present! Meet Michelle Meyer, who teaches at a public school, Forest Park Elementary in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Her ass is getting sued by the ACLU, and here is why. One day, during recess, a 7-year-old boy named "A.B." (his name is withheld in the lawsuit) was talking to a classmate, and according to the suit, she asked A.B. if he went to church. He said no, and also he doesn't believe in God, and this made her cry, probably because, WE ARE GUESSING, her parents are fundamentalist Christian fucks, and she's a young girl who hasn't seen enough of the world to know that her parents are raising her to be a holier-than-thou dick. Not her fault.
So the teacher, Ms. Meyer, came to help sort things out, and she took it as an opportunity to explain that some people believe in God and some people don't and that is okay, let's go play hopscotch, right? Haha, of course not, she decided it was her duty to show that little girl what happens when you grow up to be an ADULT holier-than-thou dick:
At that point the students were going to lunch and Ms. Meyer asked A.B. if he had told the girl that he did not believe in God and A.B. said he had and asked what he had done wrong. Ms. Meyer asked A.B. if he went to church, whether his family went to church, and whether his mother knew how he felt about God. She also asked A.B. if he believed that maybe God exists. Ms. Meyer told A.B. that she was very concerned about what he had done and that she was going to contact his mother – although she never did.
Because saying you don't believe in God in a public school is an offense tantamount to calling your teacher a twat or chewing gum.
But Ms. Meyer wasn't done yet, oh hell no, she is THAT shitty of a teacher (allegedly, sort of, except for in the lawsuit, it states that she confirms this timeline of events, so fuck her). She had to protect the other children from the godless atheist in their midst, because we all know atheists are probably murderers, or at least gay Jews:
Ms. Meyer required that A.B. sit by himself during lunch and told him he should not talk to the other students and stated that this was because he had offended them. This served to reinforce A.B.’s feeling that he had committed some transgression that justified his exclusion.
Lovely! So now the kid is feeling really sad because again, HE IS SEVEN, and he's probably a lot better behaved at school than the little Christer shits he's forced to endure on a daily basis.
So, banished from the other kids. For how long? Three days. Why? Ms. Meyer probably had some Bible thing in mind about how Jesus rose on the third day, so maybe A.B. would see the error of his ways if she crucified him for that long.
Is Ms. Meyer the only douche-thistle employed by Forest Park Elementary? Sadly, no, though she is the only one named in the lawsuit. Sometime after the incident, Ms. Meyer sent the two kids to talk to some other adult at the school about what had happened, and that "grown-up" heaped some more shame on top of A.B., while continuing to soothe the little Christ-nozzle's broken feelings:
Upon hearing [the story], the adult employee looked at A.B.’s classmate and stated that she should not be worried and should be happy she has faith and that she should not listen to A.B.’s bad ideas. She then patted the little girl’s hand.
There there, little girl, don't cry. YOUR CLASSMATE WILL BURN FOR WHAT HE'S DONE! In Jesus' name, Amen.
The lawsuit states that even now, after the incident and Ms. Meyer's three days of official shunning passed, while A.B. is allowed to talk to the other kids, he doesn't like going to school anymore, because he feels like an outcast:
A.B. came home from school on multiple occasions crying saying that he knows that everyone at school – teachers and students – hate him. Even now there are some classmates who will not talk to A.B. Even now A.B. remains anxious and fearful about school, which is completely contrary to how he felt before this incident.
And that is why Michelle Meyer is your nominee for Teacher Of The Year. And a total dick.
