News: Gay Coach sacked from private school.

A man from Christchurch, New Zealand, was sacked from a coaching job at a private Christchurch Christian school because he is gay.  The 28-year-old man told The Star newspaper he was employed at Middleton Grange School to coach one of the girls' netball teams in February.  However, he was later told by the principal that the school's Board of Trustees has decided his homosexuality was a problem and he could not continue in the position.  The newspaper reports today that the decision was made based on Christian beliefs that homosexuality is a sin.

The school was been ordered by the court to apologise to the 28-year-old and pay him compensation.  The school Board must also attend class on human rights.  In the end they even offered him his job back but he already has a coaching job at another Christian school.

Personally, I think the Board need to take sex eduction class as well because gay males are of little threat to girls, haha. Yet another reason for loving my country: discrimination of any kind based on sexual orientation is illegal, no ifs or buts about it.

  1. Pretty insightful post. Never thought that it was this simple after all. I had spent a good deal of my time looking for someone to explain this subject clearly and you’re the only one that ever did that. Kudos to you! Keep it up
