    If this is what being a “Christian hero” is all about, I’m not sure that there’s much of a future for Christianity.

    A Christian teacher in a public school is being hailed as “a hero of the faith.”

    John Freshwater, an eighth-grade teacher in Ohio, filed suit this week against the Mount Vernon City School District and district officials, claiming they violated his free-speech and civil rights when he was released. The $1-million lawsuit claims he was fired by the district last year over accusations that he preached Christianity in class.


    In firing Freshwater, the Mount Vernon school board cited an internal investigation that found he had preached his Christian beliefs in class. Freshwater, a teacher for 24 years, was also accused of using a scientific device to burn a cross image onto a student’s arm and of keeping a Bible on his desk.
