It’s hard to believe it was a whole year ago that we named New Jersey high-school teacher Viki Knox the Douche of the Week for calling homosexuality “a perverted spirit” and saying her own school “was going to hell in a handbasket” for celebrating LGBT History Month.
Well, now Knox is history.
Nearly ten months after school officials started the long process to have her dismissed (during which Knox was still paid her $70,688-a-year salary) she submitted her resignation to the Union Township Board of Education.
Rather than waiting for the axe to fall, Knox resigned and has filed a disability pension for “psychological reasons,” according to the Star-Ledger.
We’re not sure being a evil douche is a clinical condition, but we’ll leave it to you to decide: In a rambling Facebook screed, Knox, 51, said homosexuality “is a perverted spirit that has existed from the beginning of creation,” and a sin that “breeds like cancer.”
She also attacked a display honoring Gay History Month:
“Why parade your unnatural immoral behaviors before the rest of us? AND YOU ARE WRONG! I/WE DO NOT HAVE TO ACCEPT ANYTHING, ANYONE. ANY BEHAVIOR OR ANY CHOICES! I DO NOT HAVE TO TOLERATE ANYTHING OTHERS WISH TO DO.”
Does that include making vicious attacks on your own school and students, Ms. Knox? Because it sounds like your community didn’t tolerate you doing that.
