Ohio Teacher Appealing Termination

Didn't just teach nonsense in science class, also branded students with crosses


When John Freshwater was fired from his job as a science teacher at an Ohio school earlier this year, it was not just because he propounded creationism. He also pushed a Christian view against homosexuality and, according to reports, used a Tesla coil to burn the image of a cross on students' arms.

Now Freshwater has appealed the case to the Ohio Supreme Court. As Raw Story reports, secular and science groups in the state and beyond are urging the court to uphold the school board's decision.
