Oh man… You have to give it to Don Wildmon and the AFA. They can lie with the best of them (which, oddly enough, God said you shouldn’t do – but they don’t care. I get an email newsletter from the AFA that declares “Teacher fired for conservative website”. Being someone who is TOTALLY for free speech (including the speech of republicans, the KKK, Aryan Nation, etc – just because you don’t like what they’re saying doesn’t mean they don’t have the right to say it), I read the article. Seems a teacher in the Lawrence, KS school district had a conservative website that he paid for himself and expressed himself on – and that’s why they’re saying he got fired.
What a load of crap.
What they aluded to in the article, but did not explain out totally was the fact that this teacher REQUIRED his students and their parents to log on and use the website for school information. Yes, he was basically forcing his views to be spread by making it the way students and teachers could get information about their school work. Their school work.
So hell yes. He could have set up a totally separate website to handle homework and grading information for students and their parents. But he didn’t. He refused to couple his political beliefs website with a website that students were REQUIRED to use if they wanted information. And for this, he SHOULD be fired. And good riddance!
Just shows, once again, that the AFA lies. And if you have to lie to make your point, you had no point in the first place — and the people that swallow the lie are just as guilty. Ignorance, for them, *is* bliss.
