Teacher Suspended For Facebook Gay Marriage Comment

A Florida high school has suspended it’s 2010 Teacher of the Year over a comment about gay marriage that he made on his Facebook page.

Jerry Buell, social studies teacher, wrote on his personal Facebook page that same-sex marriage is a sin, that he almost threw up over news about the legalization of gay marriage in New York and that gay marriages were part of a “cesspool.”

School officials are ‘investigating’ to determine whether Buell broke the school district’s code of conduct policy.
