This should never have gotten to point that a student had to take it in her hands toget rid of a hate spewing asshole from her school! She is a child and the adults should ave protected those kids from this nasty excuse for a human being!
While i don't think he should have been hit, he should never have been allowed to go as far as he did. That is NOT protecting our children!
I'm more concerned about how this going to effect this poor girl and her future because the adults failed her!

How far should he have been allowed to go?

On what grounds could the police have removed him?

Should children (in this case, young adults) be protected by isolation or by inoculation?

Consider

Noone should be allowed to do that within so many feet of a school! Of course that is my opinion.
With that said if the police were called it may not have gotten to the point of this girl hitting him. I know don't want my kids to be harassed like this at school!

Then, we disagree.

These were not infants. I would want someone like that to be invited in to the school as part of a civics course.

The students can listen, respectfully, to the rant and then have debates and discussions on:

a) how someone gets to be like that
b) why not everyone is like that
c) what kind of societies have existed where this is the prevailing view / what happened to dissenters
d) what kind of society tolerates those views (as a dissent position)
e) US constitution and the 1st Amendment
f) ways of dealing with / interacting with this kind of douchebag (from kissing, as I suggested, to baseball bat and various points in between).

That would be a valuable education.

Discussions around the above questions, btw, are the threads on TTA that I find most rewarding. Whereas, reading 'outrage' posts exclaiming that he deserved it (or not) only help me decide which TTA members I care for (or not).

If only it would happen that way. But we both know it won't so no i don't want someone like this screaming at my child how horrible they are.
And yea they aren't babies but at the same time we need to make a safe environment for them to learn. This is not a safe environment!

Again, we disagree. Why can't that happen?

What is your definition of "a safe environment"?

Unsure

Ok look I don't want to debate about this. We as parents expect a safe environment for our children while they are at school period! When outside "forces" weather that is someone who doesn't have a child enrolled in that school and comes up and starts preaching (whatever that might be from religion to whatever else they want to "preach about") is an unsafe environment! No people should not be allowed to do this within so many feet of a school period!

Again I'm going to debate you this is how I feel and I'm all for whatever it takes to make safe environments for our schools. We will agree to disagree.

He likely doesn't know how to think for himself or is too afraid to think for himself in the first place, because of the threat of Hell. That may make him a coward, and you can call him all the things you want, but when it comes down to it, these kinds of people have serious problems that are not adequately addressed by society.

I believe the best way to address his problems is as was done, with a baseball bat!

I'm not sure a baseball bat upside the head has ever made anyone smarter.

Of course, that assumes that you're wanting to change his mind and not smash it.

They're not teaching classes on the sidewalk, but everyone learns something from every situation. Do you want your child learning that clubbing someone for being an obnoxious prick is the right course of action? If so, set aside some money, he might be calling you for bail money at one time or another.

I'd rather trust my own abilities as a parent to teach my son how to think his way through this sort of bullshit, and not get hurt by words megaphoned by a stranger with an ax to grind.

Calluses are handy, in the real world.

Oh, OK, sorry. Would you like me to split out your posts to the non-debate part of the forum?

Thanks for clarifying what you mean by safe environment ... you mean: a roof.

He was going much further than that. He was personally and publicly accusing these schoolkids of being wicked and evil, and worshipping Satan, and the females as sluts dressing provocatively; that they deserved to be raped. He also said homosexuality was a mortal sin, and pornography was evil and viewed only by nasty people. And that all the school was going to burn in hell.

In fact he didn't even mention any biblical scripture in detail; he just repeated his few favourite catchphrases over and over. Even as an apologist I'd mark him 1/10, and presume even his Christian peers would be embarrassed by this painful effort.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
