High School Teacher Forbids Saying “Bless You”
Putting the government in charge of education means putting people like this Northern California nutcase in charge of teaching your kids:
Steve Cuckovich [has] banned saying “bless you” in his high school health class in Vacaville.
He even knocked 25 points from one student’s grade for saying the phrase in class.
Cuckoovich provides this explanation:
“When you sneezed in the old days, they thought you were dispelling evil spirits out of your body,” Cuckovich said. “So they were saying, ‘God bless you’ for getting rid of evil spirits. But today, I said what you’re doing doesn’t really make any sense anymore.”
What would make more sense today would be dispelling the evil idiots from our education system. But the teachers unions won’t allow it.
Not that public school teachers aren’t answerable to the public:
After parents complained about students losing points for saying “bless you”, Cuckovich says he decided to stop the practice.
However, the teacher says he will just find another way to discipline students for saying “bless you” in class.
Eventually they will have eradicated even the most superficial traces of religion from the schools. But they will always find something else that needs to be erased, up until the point we are “fundamentally transformed.”
