Teacher Forced To Resign Over A Name

A school teacher has recently been fired because he refused to call students by the name they prefer rather than their given names.

No, it wasn’t a case of Robert wanting to be called Bob, or Juliet wanting to be called Julie. That would have been simple. But it seems life in the public school system never is these days, even in a State like Indiana, which isn’t exactly considered as a hotbed of leftism.

Yet, now Former Brownsburg High School orchestra teacher John Kluge, is without employment because he believes it’s wrong to call transgendered students by their “preferred” names, rather than the name which was given them at birth.

Yes – this is the soul reason why Kluge is unemployed, and now probably black-balled as a hater from seeking employment at any public school.

The school claims that he was not fired, by rather submitted a letter of resignation. Technically they are correct, yet according to Kluge, he did so only after school officials threatened to fire him. He attempted to withdraw the resignation letter, but they declined.

“Kluge plans to appeal to the school board to get his job back. He had worked in the district for four years.”

This is yet another case of the leftist, politically correct agenda, at least temporarily winning the day over the natural right of Mr. Kluge to express his religious beliefs freely.

And as Christian, Masterpiece Cakeshop owner Jack Phillips found out – you’re pretty much doomed unless you can somehow advance a case all the way to the U.S. supreme Court. And even then, it’s not as cut and dry as we would think.

And just as Jack Phillips was, Kluge said, “I’m being compelled to encourage students in what I believe is something that’s a dangerous lifestyle. I’m fine to teach students with other beliefs, but the fact that teachers are being compelled to speak a certain way is the scary thing.”

Last year John attempted to strike a compromise with the school. Isn’t it funny how often we conservatives suggest compromise with the left, yet they never appear to reach out to us. When was the last (or first) time you can recall anyone on the left reaching out to conservatives to find middle ground on any issue? I can’t think of a single instance. Yet we are the intolerant ones.

For a time, the school administrators allowed Mr. Kluge to refer to all his students by their last name – not just the gender-confused.
