Florida teacher suspended for anti-gay Facebook posts

Jerry Buell [pic] has been suspended from the classroom and reassigned while the Lake County School Board investigates Facebook messages in which he said he “almost threw up” when he heard about NY’s marriage equality, which he also said was part of a “cesspool.” The comments were made on Buell’s personal Facebook page but were visible to friends in his network. Buell argued he made the post on his own time on his personal computer. “It wasn’t out of hatred,” he said in an interview with the Orlando Sentinel. “It was about the way I interpret things.”
