Teacher gets fired for suggesting the bible isn't literalMikey 42 comments
Proof that even the educated can be moronic and close minded, a college teacher claims he was fired for suggesting that the story of Adam and Eve mentioned in the bible should not be interpreted literally.
Sixty year old Steve Bitterman said he made the comment on Tuesday and was fired on Thursday. Said Bitterman:
"I'm just a little bit shocked myself that a college in good standing would back up students who insist that people who have been through college and have a master's degree, a couple actually, have to teach that there were such things as talking snakes or lose their job
I put the Hebrew religion on the same plane as any other religion. Their god wasn't given any more credibility than any other god. I told them it was an extremely meaningful story, but you had to see it in a poetic, metaphoric or symbolic sense, that if you took it literally, that you were going to miss a whole lot of meaning there."
Anyone with at least a single brain cell can see Bitterman's free speech rights have clearly been violated, but apparently it's only the dogmatic zealots with less than a single brain cell who think his comments were meant to be derogatory.
