Principal Who Resigned After Inviting Anti-Gay Band: I Was Gonna Leave Anyway

Iowa principal Mike Cooper created quite the shit storm earlier this month when he invited the band Junkyard Prophet (right) to a March 8 assembly at Dunkerton Community School.

Instead of blowing on jugs and strumming washboards (or whatever inbred musicians do), the band started preaching against the sins of homosexuality and abortion.

Whatever happened to “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”?

There was an uproar in the community and, on Monday, Cooper resigned his position. But he’s back wants to set the record straight, so to speak: He wasn’t pushed to quit because of the controversy. He was leaving to take a better job as a superintendent in North Cedar.

Reports the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier

Cooper said he was away in Arizona when he got word that his resignation plans were reported on last week and said the public was wrong to believe it had anything to do with the assembly.

“That just isn’t the case,” he said. “This is a natural flow for me.”

Hmm, we guess shit really does flow upstream.
