A Teacher in California Docks Student Grades if they Say ‘God Bless You’

He says it isn’t for ‘religious’ reasons…  sure it isn’t.

When Taylor McGinley sneezed in her health class at Will C. Wood High School a few weeks ago a student replied with “God, bless you,” but it’s what teacher Steven Cuckovich said after the sneeze that now has students questioning the teacher’s agenda.  “(Cuckovich) said, ‘Do you think that girl is evil, do you think the evil spirits are coming out of her?’ And the guy that said “bless you” was like ‘No, I was just doing what I was supposed to do when somebody sneezes, not trying to be rude,'” Taylor said, referring to the incident.  McGinley said Cuckovich never mentioned or referred to the expression again, but in Erica Fagan’s class Cuckovich is deducting points from students’ grades if someone said “bless you.”

What a prat.  He’s not trying to teach a historical lesson- which point he could easily make by discussing the origin of the practice.  No, he’s trying to make an anti-religious point by deducting points from student’s grades.  What a prat.
