The Fort Worth, Texas, Independent School District has fully vindicated freshman Dakota Ary after he was suspended for expressing his Christian belief.
Ary was suspended when his German teacher overheard him tell another student that he believes homosexuality is wrong. Matt Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, says the school apologized in a letter, stating that Ary did nothing wrong.
"In fact, in his file is a letter now that says that Dakota has a right under the First Amendment to express his own personal opinion consistent with his First Amendment protections,' Staver remarks. 'So we are very pleased with this as the result has now taken a few weeks, but the result is exactly what we were looking for."
Homosexual activist teacher Kristopher Franks was also suspended while his classroom conduct was under investigation. Staver says that on Frank's return to the classroom, he remained under close supervision. "He was accompanied by an administrator from the school in the classroom to observe his behavior,' Staver explains. 'The teacher is clearly on notice now that his action is inappropriate, that what he did is wrong, and he'll no longer be able to use the classroom as a bully pulpit to promote his homosexual agenda."
Staver contends that no public school teacher should ever be permitted to bully students into believing homosexuality is acceptable.
