Since when were prison guards barred from telling colleagues about how homosexuals needs to be sent to death row just like their inmates? It’s like, jeez, can’t a guy call for the mass annihilation of an entire group of people without fear of losing his job?
A Dallas County jail guard recently fired after allegedly making anti-gay remarks and commenting about religion has said his free speech rights have been violated but he will not seek to regain his job. A sheriff’s department review concluded Stephen Johnson, 59, persisted in volunteering his religious opinions and speaking out against homosexuality. Johnson, after nearly 17 years with the department, was fired Jan. 20 for conduct unbecoming an officer and for lying to internal affairs, the Dallas Morning News reported Tuesday.
Johnson in October interrupted a private conversation among jail staff and “interjected his own opinions,” telling them all gays should be annihilated, according to a sheriff’s report. “They made it out to be that I was a bigot. I was fired ’cause I hurt someone else’s feelings,” Johnson said Monday. He said that his free speech rights were violated but that he will not appeal.
For the record, while Johnson believes gays “should be put to death,” that doesn’t mean he’s, like, rude to living homos. And it’s worth noting he also supports slavery, because the Bible supports it, and that “all dinosaurs were born of Satanic angel who has sex with woman and the animal kingdom that created ungodly reptilian creatures none of these were on the Ark.” Come to think of it, this is exactly the type of person we want keeping prisoners in line.
