Judge Grants Motion to Intervene in Chad Farnan Case

Here’s an update on Farnan v. Capistrano Unified School District, a case in which a Christian student and his family are up against a California High School teacher whose anti-Christian rants in the classroom were caught on audio tape.

This from Advocates for Faith and Freedom, the group defending Farnan:

Advocates argued before Federal District Court Judge Selna on the motion to intervene by the California Teachers Association on April 28, 2008.

The judge granted its motion to intervene and to defend high school teacher, Dr. James Corbett, and the Capistrano Unified School District. It would be interesting to know if the Association would have intervened on behalf of the teacher if he were accused of promoting Christianity instead of atheism!

We need you to stand firmly with us right now with your prayers and gifts of support so that we can continue to defend this devoted Christian young man.

  1. Sad story. I am a high school educator (and agnostic) but I would never even think of saying (or thinking) something this ignorant. We discuss and study all religions as an academic pursuit – what students choose to do in their own lives is their business. (Ironically, 97& of them are Catholic because I live and teach in Latin America but they are very curious about other religions.)

    A teacher’s job is to educate NOT indoctrinate. My job is to teach them HOW to think, not WHAT to think.
