This is one of those “what in hell was he thinking?” moments. It seems an Ohio teacher, who is a Christian, branded his students with a cross and may be fired for it:

The school board of a small central Ohio community voted unanimously Friday to fire a teacher accused of preaching his Christian beliefs despite staff complaints and using a device to burn the image of a cross on students’ arms. …

[Teacher John] Freshwater used a science tool known as a high-frequency generator to burn images of a cross on students’ arms in December, the report said. Freshwater told investigators he simply was trying to demonstrate the device on several students and described the images as an “X,” not a cross. But pictures show a cross, the report said.

This teacher has also, — for quite some time now — been teaching creationism in his science classroom, which violates local, state and Constitutional standards. The article I linked to clearly shows a picture of a cross, not an “X.” So not only did he brand his students, he’s also lying about it. How special!
