Teacher Who Burned Cross into Student’s Arm Fired

Teacher Who Burned Cross into Student’s Arm Fired | Religion Dispatches:
At the recommendation of a state-appointed referee and a hearing that spanned two years, the Mt. Vernon school board voted last night to fire middle school science teacher John Freshwater, who was accused of preaching creationism in the classroom and of using a Tesla coil to burn a cross into the arm of a student.

According to the Mt. Vernon News, the vote was 4-1 to fire Freshwater.
One wonders what this freakshow would have needed to do for that one nay voter to change his or her mind? If there was ever a vote that seemed to beg unanimity, this was it. Also, it took two years?!
