High School Teacher Faces Unemployment Over Homophobic Facebook Posts

Post By RelatedRelated Post

From the Daily Mail UK: A New Jersey school teacher accused of writing anti-gay comments on Facebook is stirring a new pot on free speech rights versus her possible termination.

Tenure charges were formally filed against high school English teacher Viki Knox, 50, last month after she was placed on leave in September for words her school board argues to be potentially harmful to their students.

‘Why parade your unnatural immoral behaviors before the rest of us?’ a Facebook user with her name wrote calling homosexuality ‘a perverted spirit,’ ‘sin,’ and which ‘breeds like cancer,’ according to NJ.com.

Ms Knox, who was the faculty adviser to Union High School’s Bible study group, is believed to have been upset over a school display marking Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender History Month.
