Things That I Hate

Devout Catholic Teachers Who Restrict Language

I have this teacher who, when she hears us say “oh my god”, says, “Would Jesus want you saying that? ‘Oh my goodness’ works just fine.” And when we say “shut up”, she tells us, “Don’t say that! Say ‘please be quiet’.” I’m in middle school, so it wouldn’t be normal for me to say “oh my goodness” or “please be quiet”. And to top it all off, she is a very devout catholic! She takes up half of our homeroom time with prayer requests!

  1. I don’t know where you live, but in the U.S., in public schools, she could be easily fired.

  2. Why would she be fired? She’s doing nothing wrong. And “oh my God” is blasphemy, a sin. Please be respectful, you are in a Catholic school aren’t you?
