"Yes, freedom of speech means that you have the right to express your opinions.
However, it doesn't absolve you of the consequences." (Well said Skine)

I think this sums it up perfectly. As a role model, which teachers are, they are held to a higher standard due to the influence they can have on a developing mind.

It was discussed on Facebook without any privacy filters, so there can be no reasonable expectation of privacy and is not at all different from speaking those words in public. Any of her students had the potential to access her opinions and been affected by them. Thus her personal opinions entered the classroom.

To all who feel this teacher is justified, I recommend that you read the article, but replace every reference to gay or homosexual, with the word "Black" or "Asian", and then consider you answer.

The truth is that you can use the Bible as an excuse to hate anyone. Just because she claims a religious justification does not make it right, or even understandable.

She has a right to believe what she wants. However, that does not mean she has a right to be a teacher.

"The sin is hated not the person(s)."

Can't recall the last time I heard a "Christian" tell someone that their sin was going to burn in hell for eternity.

It is not hypocrasy to feel that a teacher should not express her private relgious views on a public forum. Lets look at a male teacher who states on facebook that women should be submissive and are here to serve men, he then says he will object to the fact that girls are on the university posters dotted around. If you are vile enough to believe there is anything nasty about gays, or women, then fine--- you are entitled to your belief. But in your position you should keep those views to yourself- if you cannot do that then you should choose another profession. BTW- comments like 'hate the sin` ignorant........ gay is as much part of who someone is as their arm
