New Jersey Teacher Investigated for Calling Homosexuality 'Perverted' on Facebook

Officials in a northern New Jersey school district are investigating claims that a high school teacher who is faculty adviser to a prayer group posted anti-gay remarks on her Facebook page.

Lawyer John Paragano tells The Star-Ledger of Newark he saw posts by teacher Viki Knox before they were removed and alerted the Union Township school district.

Paragano says the teacher objected to a school display celebrating Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Month by calling homosexuality "perverted," among other comments.

Messages left for Knox and for the district superintendent have not been returned.

The group Garden State Equality says Knox's alleged remarks are offensive and they question her ability to enforce the state's new anti-bullying laws for schools.
