FRIENDSWOOD — A Southeast Texas teacher has been put on leave after he was accused of making a racially insensitive comment to a student of Muslim faith that referenced the death of Osama bin Laden.

The teacher is accused of offending the American-born female student on Monday during a ninth grade algebra class at Clear Brook High School in Friendswood, located 23 miles southeast of Houston.

District spokeswoman Elaina Polsen did not return a message left by The Associated Press on Tuesday. In a statement to KTRK-TV of Houston, though, Polsen said the unidentified teacher, in front of the class, asked the girl if she was grieving because her "uncle" had died, referring to bin Laden.

Polsen says say the teacher has been placed on leave pending investigation.

I bet, that if I had this teachers name and went to the county clerks office in his county of residence, that I would find that he is a REGISTARED REPUBLICAN. Anyone want to take that bet.

REPUBLICANS ARE ANTI-FREEDOM OF RELIGION

Any DEVOUT muslim has a built-in conflict with our Constitution and if they are here and remain muslim; they have chosen a belief system that absolutely forbids them from being a good citizen of this country in that they are sworn to overthrow our system of law!!! To be muslim is to accept the idea of an oppressive and repressive theocracy; a belief in direct conflict with the liberties enshrined in our Constitution!! So why should we care if we offend them???

I wonder if this teacher had said something antiChristian would he be under the same type suspension. As far as racists being Republican. Yes, you'll find Republicans that are racist, but you'll also find the greates number of racists are Democrat.

You know i am about sick of the crap coming out of these peoples mouth also. And as far as the demorat and republican thing, your a stupid human if you think either one of these parties give a #*$# about you or your family. Obama welfare or sucking some kind of government aid. A loaf of bread will be $7.50 soon and gas $7.80ga, ANOTHER WAR that we cant afford. Must be Proud
