NJ school bullies Christian teacher over Facebook posts
Christian teacher who opposes homosexuality faces bullying by school administrators.
October 24, 2011
A New Jersey high school teacher is under investigation for posting personal comments opposing homosexuality on the social networking site Facebook.
Viki Knox is a special education teacher at Union High School and was offended by a large school display recognizing October as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History month. See OneNewsNow story.
Two weeks ago, she used her personal Facebook page to express her opinion about a lesbian and gay history month display at her school.
In the post she wrote, "Homosexuality is a perverted spirit that has existed from the beginning of creation. I do not pretend to know ALL things. Nor do I pretend not to have biases, failings and faults. But I know sin and it breeds like cancer!"
According to The New York Times, a parent complained to the administration officials about the teacher's comments. Gay rights activists in the group Garden State Equality now want Mrs. Knox fired.
The school has placed her on paid leave.
Union schools superintendent Patrick Martin told Reuters the district is investigating and would take "all appropriate action" after an investigation.
Last month, a Florida teacher who was suspended for his Facebook posts opposing homosexuality received an apology from his school and was reinstated into his classroom.
Send an email to officials at the Union Public Schools. Urge Chief School Administrator Dr. Patrick Martin to reinstate Mrs. Knox immediately and protect her personal religious freedoms and rights.
