Science Teacher Sells Evangelical Novel to Students
What does science class, a God-fearing doctor, a Devil-worshiping young woman, and Satan have in common? Unfortunately, a lot more than you would think:
Reading, writing and Lucifer?
A Brooklyn principal has reprimanded a sixth-grade teacher for selling students a book that tells how to "recognize those serving Satan and bring them to Jesus."
Steven Arizmendi sold "He Came to Set the Captives Free" to four of his students at Junior High School 220 in Sunset Park for $5 apiece. The science teacher also loaned copies of the evangelical novel to eight students.
The book, which follows a God-fearing doctor who wins over a Devil-worshiping young woman, bills itself as an "honest, in-depth account of Satan's activities today."
Fortunately, the crack team at the city's Education Department is on the case.
