Teacher’s anti-LGBT Facebook rant crosses the line – Tell school officials to act now!

"Homosexuality is a perverted spirit," according to Union Township, NJ teacher Viki Knox. She said so in a hateful Facebook rant this week about a simple bulletin board in a school hallway meant to recognize LGBT history month.

Knox should be standing up for students – not railing against them. She even compared homosexuality to cancer and at one point broke into an all-caps tirade blasting homosexuality as a choice:

"Why parade your unnatural immoral behaviors before the rest of us? AND YOU ARE WRONG! I/ WE DO NOT HAVE TO ACCEPT ANYTHING, ANYONE. ANY BEHAVIOR OR ANY CHOICES! I DO NOT HAVE TO TOLERATE ANYTHING OTHERS WISH TO DO."

This kind of hatred should be unacceptable from somebody who is supposed to be a role model to students. Thanks to Garden State Equality who obtained Knox's comments, we now know the extent of her anti-LGBT rage – and together we'll make sure school officials in Union Township know we won't stand for it.

Will you send a letter to Union Township Schools Superintendent Dr. Patrick Martin right now and call on him to take immediate action?
