Just because you don't see it. Doesn't mean people don't say something.
But you still are a day late, and a dollar short on your logic and comparison. Since you still have the issue of private party, Free Expression and Speech, and the Art issue.
But what you totally and 100% ignored or not recognizing is the FACT that this was a GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE. And was on duty as such during this situation. And the teacher isn't even at the same level as "say" a Professor at a University. Especially since odds are. The students are not allowed to the same protection or rights a student at a University would have. Which would be to drop the course as an example. Maybe getting their money back (or a portion). Or the flexibility to take the course somewhere else.
All the teacher had to do was. Say, hey.....-you are right. And grabbed something else to use. Odds are. They would have bought some extra attention and respect by that student.
The catch here is the idea that the teacher didn't even think of this. Or it was intentional as means to indoctrinate the students. Or better yet. This is a perfect example of a Liberal, Democrat or other that couldn't stand having the same tactics they use on others. Used on them. -- So, they never figure that the anti-authority they might teach about certain things they don't like. Would be used as tool against them.

I’m a very outspoken atheist and I will tell you the school is in the wrong. This was not teacher lead and it is a simple quote from the bible. She is not holding a captive audience by telling others who she is and I’m sure the majority of people already know she is a Christian. It was a simple bible verse and nothing more. She was not attempting to promote her religion and the school should apologize to her and inform the teacher they where wrong.
This is an opinion the majority of atheist hold in regards to this article as it is being discussed on atheist boards.
As an a-theist myself, I agree with you completely! Many of the teaching in the bible are quite applicable to living a good life, and it does not matter whether the words came from a wise human trying to improve his followers, or some mystical god. Just be happy that she did not choose to quote from Mien Kampf .

Fun fact. The majority of atheist who you would call godless liberals do not agree with the school.

No, it doesn’t but if you folks had learned a student had cited a verse from the Koran to a group of Christians you folks would have freaked out and FOX news would be all over it. You Christians are very quick to jump on anything a Muslim does in a public school.
Your statement is bogus. Since there has actually been public schools teaching the 5 Pillars and other such religious beliefs in schools.
Plus, technically the school teaches Darwin and other "theories" as facts. When they are nothing more than beliefs. If anything, they would fit into the religious segment of the forming of the planet/world, etc.
Also...again. This is what happens when you have P-Poor instructions by educated people.
But funny, you didn't ask what the other presentations was about. Or on. Especially since the assignment was "All About Me". We will remember that the next time a student or teacher mentions anything about their political views, or teaches something about the LGBT, or Mother Earth, or other religions of the past. Because odds are great that some where on this planet. Someone, or some group still practices such religions/beliefs.
But there wouldn't be a problems if they treated everyone the same. With the same opportunity, And is was "All about Me" in the assignment about what makes them who they are. And by the way. -- The school system gets tax payer dollars to teach a said belief system to the students. Which are captive by coercion and force for the most part.

This article has been discussed in the atheist community and the majority of us feel the school was in the wrong. The student was not promoting her religion and a simple bible verse is not exposing anyone to the Christian religion and if a Muslim student was to quote a single verse of the Koran that is not exposing anyone to how wonderful Islam is, just as this young lady was not exposing anyone to how wonderful Christianity is.

I see you didn’t even bother to read the story. How nice.

So you would have no problem with me placing a sign in my business that reads “Jesus is a lie” or “All God’s are man made” after you came into my business, placed and order and had to read those signs when you came in to pay off the balance of your order?
They did not hide the fact they where gay when they placed the order. The store was very aware they where making rings for a gay couple but the gay couple had no clue the people making their rings where bigots until they posted their sign. It was at that point they didn’t want to own rings that where made by people that didn’t approve of their marriage but they had no clue the store didn’t approve of their marriage prior to placing their order as they where treated well.
Timing is everything. It took time for the couple to come in to the store. They obviously came in before Mother's Day, as that was when the sign went up. If only the couple came in a few days later.
And if you got a great product at a great price and received great service, why do you care what somebody thinks about something?
while i wouldnt believe it was right, i would respect your right to do that. i probably wont be coming back to your business, but im not going to threaten your business or demand a refund.
you have a right to your opinions, but that doesn't mean that if those opinions violate my beliefs, i have a right to threaten you.
So I am the bigot? No, missy. YOU are the bigot. You and your kind. I dare you to TRY to force me to accept your deviancy nad degenerate actions. Hope you die of aids.

Blest, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Damn those gay’s trying to take away your equal rights. How dare them.

We are coming to destroy you. Obama is going to take over the world and we are going to cast you into a lake of fire and laugh as we eat delicious cookies provided by the GSA.
Don’t forget to hide under your blanket tonight. We all know Satan can’t get under a blanket. Blankets protect you from all kinds of monsters. So bury your head deep under them tonight so you can awake in the morning.
On a serious note. Do you not realize how crazy you sound? Do you honestly read what you write before you post it?
