High School Teacher Forbids Saying “Bless You”

Putting the government in charge of education means putting people like this Northern California nutcase in charge of teaching your kids:

Steve Cuckovich [has] banned saying “bless you” in his high school health class in Vacaville.

He even knocked 25 points from one student’s grade for saying the phrase in class.

Cuckoovich provides this explanation:

“When you sneezed in the old days, they thought you were dispelling evil spirits out of your body,” Cuckovich said. “So they were saying, ‘God bless you’ for getting rid of evil spirits. But today, I said what you’re doing doesn’t really make any sense anymore.”

What would make more sense today would be dispelling the evil idiots from our education system. But the teachers unions won’t allow it.

Not that public school teachers aren’t answerable to the public:

After parents complained about students losing points for saying “bless you”, Cuckovich says he decided to stop the practice.

However, the teacher says he will just find another way to discipline students for saying “bless you” in class.

Eventually they will have eradicated even the most superficial traces of religion from the schools. But they will always find something else that needs to be erased, up until the point we are “fundamentally transformed.”

    So, when the school systems ban Christmass and Easter. Well the three week holiday and 1 week holiday be be banned also?
    If no celebrating these holidays then whay have the time off for them.
    Like to see what the unions do about that.

  • Heltau

    Steve Cuckovich is also a stupid dink.
    So where are the other teachers in kicking this retard out of the school?
    and it should have been Will, and not, my spell check is broke for sure.

    If someone had said it in Spanish, there would be no problem.

  • StanInTexas

    Steve Cuckovich shoudl be unemployed AND UNEMPLOYABLE in the field of education.

    What a petty little tyrant!

  • Mickey Shea

    Another miserable petty tyrant.

  • james

    He probably doesn’t mind taking off all religious holidays though. Bless his little leftist heart.

  • SPURWING PLOVER

    Someone should put a tack in his chair and bring him a rotten wormy apple to match his rotten personality

  • Walt in DC

    Parents should make every effort to see to it that this petty tyrant is fired. Regrettably teaching attracts these progressive pocket Stalins.

    I wonder if he’s friends with the homosexual bar patron who unloaded on Bristol Palin last week…

    High school teacher, father of three w/two grandkids and one on the way.

    The guy is an ass.

    So anyways, I guess you just tweet @Cuck11 when you really need to do somebody’s wife in front of them to provide them with a clean-up opportunity??

    With a Twitter id like that, he’s got to be pretty dim (or just plain cuckolded).

  • Wendy

    They call them “Spring Break” and “Winter Break” (not Easter and Christmas), so we will keep getting them. Give up their precious time off? Seriously???

  • Wendy

    And parents HAVE TO SPEAK UP!!! I do, and it pays off! We succeeded in getting rid of the piece-of-crap teacher who organized “Crash the TEA Party”.

  • logic Mine

    Go ahead and discipline my kid! Just don’t be surprised if he dishes out a little DISCIPLINE himself!

    He’s already been briefed on how to handle self-proclaimed despots.

  • NMS

    This twit can not even get his history correct. The term came on during the bubonic plaque where when someone started sneezing they were soon to die. Saying god bless you was the best thing you could do because you were wishing them entrance into heaven.

  • The MaryHunter

    Well, there’s this frack-head, or there’s this admirable teacher who stands up to student-on-student violence and gives his kids a real lesson.

  • A. Levy

    Well, it is Mexifornia, so this should come as no surprise. Only in a nation of sheeple could this happen without some bureaucrat getting hanged for it.

  • Lee

    Blegh. When I look back on my HS teachers now, I realize that most of them were jerks – except for the Korean war vet. Get rid of the unions and make this job attractive. We want the best of society treating our kids, not people who defaulted to the profession because they couldn’t do anything else.

  • oldguy

    Look how red this mans’ face is. How did he hide his horns?

  • Jodie

    When he sneezes, I will say “God curse you”.

  • T

    When he sneezes, say “fuck you”.

  • Jodie

    Right T. Or we could say, “allahu akbar!”

  • Geeknerd

    I add this man to my daily prayers. I will ask God to bless him with the ultimate blessing; that he be saved and made a new creature, and become a professing Christian, so that we can meet in Heaven.

  • Doing Time

    With the Thousands of dollars donated and volunteer hours provided for jail & prison ministries to “Reintegrate” felons into society with acceptable behavior, it WOULD be a lot easier to do it 2 minutes a day via an opening momnet of silence honoring all faith practices, Saying the Pledge of Allegiance as ONE NATION UNDER GOD ! We would Spend alot less on felons later if we just invested a few minutes a day in schools. ~ I’m Free !!!

  • Doing Time

    IF you said “Budda Damit” Mohommed Damit” would it be acceptable???

  • Spurwing Plover

    Johnny and suzie cant read becuase pissiepant teachers like this blabbering little dweeb he needs to be given the boot

  • TED

    I’ll bet F*ck You would fit right into his classroom. At least that’s my message to him!

  • Rosie

    If they said “Gaia bless you.” I’ll bet this old Cucko would change his mind real quick. Boy do I wish I could be a student in that old fart’s class.

  • SPURWING PLOVER

    What they used to call BC and AD their now calling BCE(BEFORE COMMON ERA) and CE(COMMON ERA) i mean POLITICAL CORRECTNESS is just another word for SOCIALISM

  • Lgbpop

    How I wish I was in school again, just to tangle with flakes like this. Mary Heffron ( hiya Miss Heffron, you know who you are and I bet you still remember me 40 years later!) was sane compared to this schlemiel. For starters, at 25 points apiece for the evil spirits emanating from his mouth when he speaks, I’d bless him four times, pulling a zero grade, then going public with it. I was graduated fifth in my class in 1973, and could do it again. I’d love to see the reaction I could wring from this DB – not to mention the general public.

  • Joe

    The dude’s got funny eyes. I hope it’s because some angry parent punched his lights out.

  • Oferfuxake

    Absolute and ridiculous insanity. This is the definition of moonbattery. Deducting points from tests because someone is polite enough to say “bless you?” The only thing this cretin is right
    about is the origin of the phrase. How is it this raving psycopath is in charge “(re)educating” anyone, much less children? How can… How DID this happen! This ridiculous garbage is why I chose this handle’

    Opheruxake! (Say it aloud!)

  • Oferfuxake

    Dammit! I shouldn’t do this from the phone. :) please forgive obvious typos!

  • Bob Roberts

    “When you sneezed in the old days, they thought you were dispelling evil spirits out of your body,” Cuckovich said. “So they were saying, ‘God bless you’ for getting rid of evil spirits.”
    ——-
    Another explanation I heard was that sneezing was an early symptom of the black death and so people blessed you with obvious hopes. Another explanation is that when you sneeze, at least with some people, it can adversely affect your heart rate and so in case you went into cardiac arrest you would be “blessed” just before death.

    Any truth to any of these reasons? I don’t know and don’t care. But I do know the Constitution prevents government from interfering in the free and open expression of religion and no matter what lies this guy tells he just is trying to interfere with the mention of “God”. The sneeze interrupts the class. Saying “God bless you” does not.

  • Bob Roberts

    Correction – “bless you”, not “God bless you” but the point still stands for the same reason.

  • SPURWING PLOVER

    The next line that jerk should be sanding on is a unemployment line and get a new job as janitor

    Another advantage to homeschooling is that with fewer students the schools will need fewer teachers. Then people like Mr. Cuckovich will lose their jobs.

    I hope he is never allowed to care for folks like elderly people or disabled people. The guy should not be trusted around those who are helpless. He’s got some kind of personality disorder for sure.
