Christian Teacher Ousted After Complaining About Gay Tolerance Training

“A teacher at a Tottenham secondary school [outside of London] has been suspended for allegedly harassing and intimidating his colleagues over a row about gay rights. History teacher and practising Christian Kwabena Peat, 54, wrote letters to three members of staff at Park View Academy, in Langham Road, following the training session. Invited speaker Sue Sanders had ruffled feathers when she asked the audience why it was believed that heterosexuality was natural and that those who did not accept being gay was normal had to “sort out their prejudices”. Mr Peat condemned the comments made by the gay rights campaigner and co-founder of Schools Out, which conflicted with his religious views. The letter also contained citations from the Bible warning that practising homosexuals risked “God’s wrath.” A complaint was made to the school’s headteacher claiming they felt “harassed and intimidated” by Mr Peat’s letter. He was suspended on full pay from his £50,000-a-year post in January while an investigation, which ends next month, was carried out.” [Independent]
