Just ask my five year old. Where’d she hear that gem? At school and it’s the truth because her teacher said so.
We should have known that something like this was bound to happen sooner or later. The teacher has made it extremely obvious she’s one of those Christians who assumes everyone else is also.
For example, we recently watched in shock as she led the students in two god soaked pledges and a god soaked song which she followed up by telling the children to bow their heads and say their prayers.
I’ve been hoping that we wouldn’t have to deal with this until our daughter was older and more capable of understanding what’s going on, but it appears that’s not going to be possible.
What’s gets me though is that I feel like the bad guy for even considering making a complaint about this.
I’m also quite worried about what will happen to our daughter if we do. A lot of Christians simply can’t handle not being allowed to use their official positions to promote their personal beliefs. They tend to turn into vicious bullies who make life hell for the only party can reasonably get to – the kid(s).
Our daughter is just coming out her shell and I’m afraid that if there is a backlash, she’ll retreat back into it – permanently.
What’s a parent to do?
