Christina Comers fish will eat TAEs fish

Remember Christina Comer? The woman who was EXPELLED from the Texas Education Agency after forwarding this disgusting, hateful, explicit email to her coworkers?

Shes suing TEA.

No, not for a million dollars (like the DI wants– theyd be happy as clams if public schools went extinct). Shes suing for:

Her lawsuit seeks a court order overturning the TEA’s neutrality policy on teaching of creationism and declaring that her dismissal was unconstitutional. The suit also seeks her reinstatement to her old job.

Good luck, Ms Comer! May your fish has many noms.

    OK, maybe not so much. I should read the links first next time.

    For the record, if anyone reads those above two comments, I said something stupid without realizing fully what I was talking about in the first one, and tried (poorly) to make up for it in the second. I’m sorry and embarrassed, and I wish Ms. Comer the best in her lawsuit.

    It makes me angry that Ms. Comer has to say that she’s trying to overturn the agency’s “neutral position”, when in fact the email in question was already neutral (no yays or nays, just saying that there was this event). Fortunately, I’m not constrained by having to file a lawsuit, so I’ll freely say that the TEA needs to replace its backbone with people who actually care about science education and are actually neutral, not blatantly on the side of a non-science like creationism.

    (I’m restraining myself from using a lot more colorful language, lest no one understands what I’m saying. :P And from what I hear, science education isn’t the only thing the TEA is trying to destroy.)

    Good on her, let’s hope she gets justice and her job back for we need people of her integrity in such positions.

    She might as well be suing GOD! The bible says “The large print giveth, the small print taketh away!”

    yeah, so what’s up with these “neutrality” rules and “academic freedom” laws? Is it opposite day? Am I on Spongebob?

    Yoo @ # 4: … the email in question was already neutral (no yays or nays, just saying that there was this event).

    Yabbut how many creationist talks did she give equal time?

    I’ve got a text version of the Comer lawsuit (pdf), my own OCR, so beware of glitches.

    My spousal unit and I went to hear that lecture. You would think that the TX SBOE would WANT to attend it, if only to find out what “the opposition” was up to.

    A few months later, Kenneth Miller spoke at UT — I was going to send an “FYI” email to Don McLeroy (the Chair) and Robert Scott, the Commissioner of Education for Texas, but had second thoughts (I do like my job!)
