Teacher of the Year Suspended – Religious Freedom Coalition

Mount Dora, FL – Jerry Buell, last year’s “Teacher of the Year” at Mount Dora High School, has been suspended from the classroom for a comment he made on his own personal Facebook page, expressing his disapproval of legalized same-sex marriage in New York. School officials received a complaint about Buell’s comment on Tuesday from a 2002 Mount Dora graduate who was never even in Mr. Buell’s class. The Lake County School District responded by taking away Buell’s teaching privileges and reassigning him to administrative duties. Liberty Counsel is representing Buell and demanding that he be immediately reinstated with an apology for violating his First Amendment rights.

– Father, we pray for Mr. Buell, and that his First Amendment rights be upheld. What is happening to our country when we are suppressed from speaking what we believe? Doesn’t the opposition speak with no penalty? Help Mr. Buell stand strong under this persecution.

– My God has sent his angel and has shut the lions’ mouths so that they have not hurt me. (Daniel 6:22)
