Oklahoma Elementary School Teacher Hands Out Bibles to Her Third-Graders

On Thursday, in Duncan, Oklahoma, Woodrow Wilson Elementary School teacher Erica Mackey announced she had a surprise for her third-grade students:

The student reports that Mrs. Mackey announced that she had “the holy Bible” and asked if anyone would like one. Nearly all the students walked up to her desk and she handed them out.

Creationist Josh Feuerstein’s Attempt to Punish Baker Who Wouldn’t Print Anti-Gay Message on Cake May Have Backfired

It’s already been established that you can’t expect a baker to write hateful anti-gay messages on cakes. If they say no, it’s fine, assuming they’re going to reject all hateful messages regardless of who’s asking for it.

But that didn’t stop another Christian from asking a baker to write “We do not support gay marriage” on a cake. She said no. He cried hypocrisy (because he doesn’t understand how saying no to all hate speech is different from rejecting a message of love specifically from gay customers).

What makes this story especially interesting is that the Christian was Josh Feuerstein the Christian loudmouth on YouTube who claimed to disprove evolution in three minutes (spoiler: he failed):

That same Josh Feuerstein called up Cut the Cake bakery in central Florida the other day, asked for the #HateCake, recorded the phone call without her permission, and posted it online, leading to harassment of the owners by Feuerstein’s followers. (He later took down the video at the baker’s request, but it was reposted elsewhere.)

Rather than refuse to bake cakes for gay couples, he’s putting together a #ChristianCakeMob, baking and passing out cupcakes outside several gay-friendly bars in Buffalo tonight:
