A Mission Viejo history teacher is being sued for making what a student calls anti-Christian comments.
Capistrano Valley High School sophomore Chad Farnan and his parents filed the lawsuit against James Corbett last week.
They allege that Corbett's remarks during an Advanced Placement
European history promoted religious intolerance in violation of the
Court papers cite classroom tape recordings in which Corbett says "When you put on your Jesus glasses, you can't see the truth," and other remarks that troubled Farnan.
Farnan says Corbett's lessons are one-sided, but the teacher's
defenders say his remarks were taken out of context. Capistrano Valley junior Doug Kalagian says Corbett was being sarcastic "to help prove a point."
