Judge Orders ‘Jesus Glasses’ Case To Go Forward

Not only did Chad Farnan’s history teacher discredit Christians, according to a lawsuit filed by the Orange County, California high school student and his family, but churchgoers in the U.S. South as well.

Student Sues ‘Anti-Christian’ Teacher Over Remarks in Class

A student and his family have filed a federal lawsuit demanding that a popular European history teacher at California’s Capistrano Valley High School be fired for what they say were anti-Christian remarks he made in the classroom. Image found at ChadFarnan.com

Chad Farnan, a 16-year-old sophomore, says the teacher, James Corbett, told his students that “Jesus glasses” obscure the truth and suggested that Christians are more likely than other people to commit rape and murder.

Farnan recorded his teacher telling students in class: “What country has the highest murder rate? The South! What part of the country has the highest rape rate? The South! What part of the country has the highest rate of church attendance? The South!” Farnan said he took the tape recorder to class to supplement his class notes. Full Story

The Farnans’ complaint was dismissed by the school district, but they took their plight to federal court, where U.S. District Judge James Selna said he believed the case has merit and ordered it to go forward, probably before the end of the year.

The Farnans say that if the school agrees to put Corbett through sensitivity training and requires him to apologize to the students he offended, then the family would consider dropping their lawsuit. The school district has yet to comment on the offer.

  1. It is getting so bad now. In my lifetime I have seen Christians go from being highly respected members of society, to being ridiculed by the masses and silenced by the government. It makes me very sad.

  2. First, this teacher was wrong to claim such causal relationships. But the comment above is ridiculous. Christians make up 90% of the US population, and to say they’re being ridiculed by the masses is naive at best. I ridicule Christians and believe me, *I* am the minority.

  3. Believers,

    Do not be afraid — remember what is written: “I believe, therefore I spoke.” “Do not fear their insults and do not fear their fear, but sanctify Christ as lord in your hearts always, ready to make an explanation for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.”

    I doubt that the Lord Jesus is held in people’s hearts at the 90th percentile, as my friend above unfoundedly asserts. It sounds entirely unbelievable since it is written in scripture, “You will know them by their fruits.” What a tree produces presents the identity of the tree and the seed from which it grew. The seed is the word of God, as the Lord Jesus teaches, and so when the sower (God) plants the word in a person’s heart — that person receives the word as soft soil receives a seed — then the effect of the saving grace within him grows substantially, thus producing good works — good fruit. “You’ll know them by their fruits.”

    Can we all say that we emulate Christ like we should? No — but certainly some do to a certain degree. And that’s evidence of His Spirit living in their hearts. Ninety percent of Americans are believers and followers of Jesus Christ? While you consider that claim, consider yourself soberly, because ultimately you’re responsible for yourself to your Creator, who will hold you and all people accountable. Ask the Lord Savior into your heart — return to Him and forget your sinful behavior — and He will be with you forever.

    Your friend,
