From the department of “let’s violate your First Amendment Rights,” comes this jewel. A school district in Florida has suspended a teacher because he wrote that he believes homosexuality is a sin on his Facebook page.
Jerry Buell, who teaches social studies at Mount Dora High School, wrote on his personal Facebook page that same-sex unions is a sin, that he “almost threw up” over news about the legalization of same-sex marriage in New York, and that gay marriages were part of a “cesspool,” as reported by Orlando Sentinel.
The comments were brought to the attention of Lake County School District officials by a former student, according to WESH 2 News. The district has suspended Buell from the classroom and reassigned him to a clerical position at the district’s administration building while an investigation is pending, the local news agency reported.
Buell told the Orlando Sentinel that “it wasn’t out of hatred” that he made the posts. “It was about the way I interpret things.”
In other words, he was suspended because of his belief that homosexuality is a sin. Unfortunately, this is what the gay lobby is all about in silencing those of us who believe God’s word. To call sin sin, is the ultimate in sin for the politically correct. It doesn’t reduce homosexuality’s sinfulness. It is still an abomination to God. But they don’t want us speaking the truth at all.
I hope this teacher continues to stand for the truth and fights for his First Amendment rights.
