Union Township high school teacher, Viki Knox, is accused of posting anti-gay comments on Facebook, prompting some to call for her resignation. She allegedly referred to homosexuality as “a perverted spirit that has existed from the beginning of creation,” and a “sin” that “breeds like cancer.”
Ed Barocas of the ACLU came to her defense. “Although we do not agree with the sentiments expressed on Ms. Knox’s personal Facebook page, her comments are protected by the First Amendment. (We) believe that the response to offensive speech is not the restriction of speech, but more speech.”
I think that’s the truth. Just because we stop someone from voicing hatred, it doesn’t mean they’ve seen the light. Let her say what’s on her mind so we know who she really is. This is one teacher that needs some re-educating.
