A teenager upset his classmates when he did a presentation on his religion as a ‘Pastafarian.’ When he got in trouble, he claimed that he was exercising his right to free speech.
It Was Homework
The boy said, ‘So for a class discussion, we had to do a short presentation on something we have a strong belief in.’
He Was Only 16
The presentation could be about religion, politics, or anything a student felt strongly about. The boy, who was only 16, was an atheist, and when deciding what his presentation would be about, he was struck with what he thought was a fantastic idea.
He Was a Pastafarian
The time came to do his presentation, and the boy was excited. He couldn’t wait for his class to see his. He had picked something he thought was edgy and claimed he truly believed: Pastafarianism.
It Wasn’t Funny to Everyone
His presentation on Pastafarianism, AKA the belief in ‘The church of the flying spaghetti,’ was a big hit. His classmates loved it. All except for two students; one was a strict Muslim, and the other a Christian.
His Teacher Was Mad
His teacher was mad and asked him if he was making a joke or if he had some kind of point to prove. To which the young boy replied that it was both. He said he believed religions like Islam and Christianity were ‘dumb.’ By now, the two students were staring daggers at the teen. After class, his teacher had a word with him.
It Was Free Speech
When class was over, the boy’s teacher warned him not to try a stunt like that again. But the boy claimed that it was within his rights to free speech. In his eyes, he should be allowed to say religions were stupid and evil, particularly monotheistic ones. He said this, knowing his teacher was a Christian.
He Didn’t Care
The boy said, ‘His class is the one I don’t take seriously, to be honest, mostly because of the nonsense subject matter on the module and partly because he’s a Christian.’
Was He in the Wrong?
His teacher let him go and told him to focus and stay on topic. Since the boy already got good grades, he didn’t care what the teacher thought of him. He had argued his points calmly and felt entitled to express his opinions. He asked the internet what other people thought.
And the Internet Responded
One person said, ‘Stop trying to be an edgy teenager, what other people believe in is their business.’
Others Chimed in
Another commented, ‘Nobody wants to be around somebody dissing their religion any more than you want to be around someone pushing theirs on you.’
People Were Really Invested
Others said, ‘This sounds like the attitude of someone pretentious and wanting to feel special.’
One commenter pointed out that ‘freedom of speech does not equal freedom from consequence.’
There Were Loads of Comments
A final person commented, ‘If I were the teacher, I would have given him an F or at least made him redo it.’
