Teacher of The Year is A Homophobe?

If you missed this piece of news, I’ve collected some articles on the issue for you to peruse.

Jerry Buell, a Florida high school teacher named Teacher of the Year, was suspended for anti-gay remarks he posted on Facebook.

“If they want to call it a union, go ahead,” Buell wrote, according to ClickOrlando.com. “But don’t insult a man and woman’s marriage by throwing it in the same cesspool as same-sex whatever! God will not be mocked. When did this sin become acceptable???”

Cesspool?  Wow.

More free speech at its finest:
