Florida Teacher of the year, Jerry Buell suspended for Facebook anti-gay remarks…should he have been suspended?

Teacher Jerry Buell has been suspended for anti-gay remarks he posted on his Facebook page. He says that his remarks reflect his interpretation of Biblical teaching. Many of his FB friends unfriended him, but the school system has intervened. Is this a matter for the school system? Tell me what you think.

    He should not be suspended for WHAT he said. He should be suspended for violating the school district’s policy on social media. I believe ANY employee who posts contrary to the policy, REGARDLESS of their position, should be held accountable. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with what he said. Some people won’t like it, but this is America and they need to be tolerant of his beliefs.
