"Club meeting at PSHS!! Rally around them and show ur support. We are also considering a drunks-t totaller [sic] club, drugged/sober club, smokeless tobacco vs smokes club, street racing, and deer poaching clubs. Please donate and support us. Thank u!!! I think I hear the drag already zinging."

-- A Facebook posting from David Foggin, a science teacher at Parkersburg South High School in Parkersburg, West Virginia, which was accompanied by a photograph of a flier announcing a meeting of the school's Gay-Straight Alliance.

For this disgusting comparison of LGBT acceptance to getting drunk, tobacco use, and poaching deer, Foggin was suspended for four days and will return to the classroom on March 31, after the district's spring break. The school board will the decide whether Foggin's suspension will be paid or unpaid.
