DM – A teacher accused of writing anti-gay comments on Facebook has resigned after 21 years in the job. Jenye ‘Viki’ Knox caused widespread controversy a year ago when she compared homosexuality to cancer and said her school was ‘going to hell in a handbasket’. Now it has been revealed that she quit her job over the summer and is claiming a disability pension for ‘psychological’ reasons. Ms Knox is a committed Christian who advised the Bible study group at Union High School in Union Township, New Jersey. Last September the 51-year-old was placed on leave after taking to Facebook to denounce the school’s plans to celebrate Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month. ‘Why parade your unnatural immoral behaviors before the rest of us?’, she wrote, adding that homosexuality was ‘perverted’ and a ‘sin’ which ‘breeds like cancer’. The School Board told the Star-Ledger on Tuesday that Ms Knox had submitted her resignation over the summer and that settlement talks are currently under way.The tenured special education teacher, who had worked in Union Township since 2000, had been suspended from her $72,270-a-year job ever since the beginning of the Facebook controversy. She has said in court papers that she plans to seek a disability pension due to a back injury and on ‘psychological grounds’.
This is why nobody should vote for either Romney or Obama. On the one hand Romney supporters will fight to protect this woman’s right to publicly say bigoted things against gay people in the name of God and make outlandish claims comparing homosexuality to a disease responsible for killing 7.8 million humans a year. On the other Obama supporters will fight to protect a union teacher’s right to claim a publicly-funded disability pension for something as silly as ‘psychological reasons’. Either choice instantly makes you a bad person.
I’m all for teachers and I’m all for freedom of speech, but everything this lady stands for makes me hate her, the people who brainwashed her into thinking it’s okay to slander minors, and myself for allowing this braindead slut to have a louder public voice than mine. Stealing MY tax dollars so you can retire in homophobic paradise? Suck a fat gay dick, Viki Knox. Psychological reasons? Bitch did you even SEE what those kids said to that bus monitor lady? A few hoodie-wearing high school lesbians aren’t possibly causing you that much damage.
You are everything that’s wrong with America, Viki.
