Here we go again! Another public school pushing its hard left agenda and attacking Jesus. I'm telling you, they hate the God of the Bible. You wouldn't catch them dead teaching that Mohammed was a pedophile, even though they would have a good case in making that argument. They will trash Jesus at any given opportunity, but oh, they must show respect for Islam.

New Hampshire: Teacher Assigns Students to Read Book That Describes Jesus as a “Wine-Guzzling Vagrant and Precocious Socialist”… Shockingly, People Have a Problem With This…
"But it’s OK to offend Christians, everyone knows that…
BEDFORD – 'The parents of a Bedford teen are calling for the ouster of school officials who assigned their son a book that refers to Jesus Christ as a “wine-guzzling vagrant and precocious socialist.”
“We had almost PhD people letting this fumble through their fingers, and they all said it was grand,” said Dennis Taylor, a conservative Christian. “I think there should be a review of these individuals and perhaps some firing done.”
Taylor and his wife Aimee became upset when they learned that their son had been assigned the book “Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America,” in his personal finance class at Bedford High School.
“Nickel and Dimed” is a first-person account of author Barbara Ehrenreich’s failed attempts to make a living at various minimum wage jobs across the country. Written in response to 1996 welfare reform, the book offers a serious critique of the current economic system, which Ehrenreich argues preys on the poor.
This fall, Dennis and Aimee Taylor complained about the book to the school district, citing its occasional use of obscene dialogue and anti-capitalist message.
“The author is a known social Marxist, hates everything American, everything that America stands for or was built on,” Aimee Taylor said. “I mean when you read the book you see that strongly in this woman’s agenda. It’s horrible.”
The Taylors also took issue with the book’s portrayal of Christians. In one scene, Ehrenreich attends a tent revival meeting, and is troubled by its emphasis on Jesus Christ’s crucifixion, rather than his social teachings.'"
Jesus a socialist? In their dreams. Yes, he taught that we are to help those in need, but he was speaking to individuals. He NEVER said that it was the job of government to redistribute wealth.
