A high school science teacher in Minnesota was removed from his job after being quizzed by school officials about his faith, and whether he ever mentioned God or the Bible during science class.
Their great fear was that he would tell the kids the truth that God created the heavens and the earth and it wasn’t a ball of lint exploding through the cosmos.
Even though his text book had “creation” as a teaching option, he was grilled, humiliated and fired for just having sincerely held religious beliefs, and not even mentioning them.
On the other hand, James Hormel has just recently been named by Clinton as the Ambassador to Luxembourg and will be the first homosexual to openly display his lifestyle in that position. He is applauded for his bravery, his resolve to do the right thing.
On one hand, the government fires a man for potentially mentioning his lifestyle, his beliefs, because they might be offensive. And on the other hand a man who practices a lifestyle, openly, without concern for the feelings of others, is promoted to a position of representing our nation abroad.
Is it just me, or does this seem a little hypocritical . . . let me know what you think.
