High school teacher's anti-Creationism comment violated law

An example of someone getting caught being intolerant...to many Christians.  I'm sure he was surprised he got caught on it.

High school teacher insulted Christians | News - OCRegister.com
A Mission Viejo high school history teacher violated the First Amendment by disparaging Christians during a classroom lecture, a federal judge ruled today.

James Corbett, a 20-year teacher at Capistrano Valley High School, referred to Creationism as “religious, superstitious nonsense” during a 2007 classroom lecture, denigrating his former Advanced Placement European history student, Chad Farnan.

Don't be so quick to defend evolution just because the wingnuts hate it. Darwin led to the worst colonial, militarist, attrocity and stock market abuses in history. Lamarkian inhertiance and mitochondrial DNA show that Darwin was not all he is crackered up to be. So don't defend him! These angry white talk radio males need universal health care so they can finally see a psychistrist. We also need to psychiatrically regulate the preachers and teachers who influenced such creatures. That is what homeland security is really about.

Ok..I wasn't defending him. The teacher was reprimanded, which I agree with.

I'm afraid the rest of your argument makes little sense to me.
