"This sub had no business destroying a child's faith in Santa. Belief in Santa is between the child and its parents. This teacher believes Santa to be a form of modern religion. She makes a lame case for such a belief. Her take on Santa is not gospel. It's her take."
"I never said in my telephone interviews with Mr. Schuyler that I want everyone to agree with my beliefs about teaching, or not teaching, Santa Claus to children. What I said, as I stated in my letter to the editor and evidently need to clarify further, was that 1) what public school is doing by promoting Santa Claus is promoting a form of religion; that 2) religion should not be promoted in public school; 3) a teacher should not be required to promote a religion in public school; and 4) the lesson plan requiring me to promote Santa Claus was imposing religion on me, not the other way around. I certainly am not responsible for, or interested in, making people believe as I do about anything, for that is definitely not my job."
Then kids who couldn't care less about your religious beliefs won't be forced to suffer through your pomposity.
If you were my kids teacher and you pulled this crap, I'd make sure you never darkened the door of another public school.
Now, take your self righteous prattle someplace else because quite frankly you're beginning to bore the hell out of me.
If your friend had any true convictions, she would have stood by her words and kept her beliefs to herself.
