About 3 months ago I received an email about a teacher who was demoted because he brought a Christian speaker into his classroom. That teacher was my homeroom teacher at Enloe High. His name is Robert Escamilla. The speaker talked about his experience of being tortured by his Muslim captures. His reason for being in class that day was to give his perspective on life and religion. A Muslim parent heard about this and protested which led to ESCOs demotion. One of the many problems with this situation is this Christian speaker was not ESCOs only speaker. He has also brought in Muslims, atheists, satanists, and more. All these people were brought here to share their perspective on life and religion. But the Christian speaker is the one that brought the attention and the recent demotion. What is it about Christianity that creates such a stir in people. Is it good? Is it expected? I don’t think that people understand if you discriminate against one religion…there are many others that will follow.
