Ohio teacher forced out for refusing to use students’ pronouns, suit says

Remember, gang. Before the Bill of Rights guarantees freedom to speech, it guarantees that (Big Brother) shall not prohibit the free exercise of religion.

Vivian Geraghty, 24, filed a lawsuit against Jackson Memorial Middle School in Massillon, Ohio, the Board of Education, and two school district employees this week in federal court, alleging free speech retaliation and violations against her right to practice her Christian religion.

About a week before Geraghty quit, she said two students requested she use names that align “with their new gender identities rather than their legal names.”

One of the students also wanted to be addressed by a preferred pronoun, according to the lawsuit, claiming the school had instituted a policy requiring teachers to use students’ preferred pronouns.

Geraghty said that she went to the principal “in the hope of reaching a solution that would allow her to continue teaching without violating her religious beliefs and constitutional rights” and said she would not use the students’ preferred pronouns.

She was later called into another meeting with the principal and another school district employee, who told her that “she would be required to put her beliefs aside as a public servant,” but Geraghty said she would not change her mind, the lawsuit alleges.

Geraghty was then told that she must quit if she did not participate in the student’s “social transition” by the school district employee, who handed her a laptop and ordered her to draft a resignation letter for immediate submission, which she did, according to the court filing.

In the letter, which has been filed in court as a part of the lawsuit brought by The Alliance Defending Freedom, Geraghty cites “irreconcilable” differences between herself and the school district as her reason for quitting.

Wokeness is vile and repressive and oppressive.

    Yeah,,, I'm thinking the district is going to pay for the rule. It didn't say she was tenured. I would assume so, since if they're not tenured they could fire her at any time "for cause." And you KNOW the Teachers' union isn't going to back her up, so...

    Here's what I love about the Court with those three Trump Justices: The purpose of the Religion Clauses in the Bill of Rights was to unleash religious zeal among the citizens of the Republic, free from government interference and oppression. For 60 years lib/progressive/woke judges persecuted religious citizens. They did every sort of mental gymnastics to pretend away our liberty to live out faith, and enabling government to prohibit lived out faith.

    "But pb! But pb! Rights are not absolute!" -Curt

    The school district, in effect, attempted to foist woke religion on a Christian teacher. Before the Trump Justices?, wokeness would have been foisted. Done deal. Piece of cake. pb's guessing. Not no more.

    When I was in school we had a teacher who wouldn't let us use certain verbs.

    She was later fired for violating our freedom of speech !!! 😢

  4. by oldedude on December 19, 2022 6:22 am
    I think it depends on what verbs were "banned."
    This case is a First amendment fight. Does an individual's freedom of religion override a mandate from an employer to limit her freedom of speech.

    It's early in this Court's history but there appears to be a determination to recapture the liberty guaranteed by the Free Exercise Clause among the Conservatives. That's where I'd put my money.

  6. by islander on December 19, 2022 6:37 am

    They got the teacher for two crimes, violation of freedom of speech and violation of religious freedom.

    One of the verbs was "damn". She heard one of the students say "God damn it !!!

    They are among the worst of crimes, at least in the minds of folks like me who, unlike you, value Freedom of Speech and Religious Freedom.

    What are the sentencing guidelines in your jurisdiction? Bahahahahahahahahahaha, ahhhhhhhhhhh!

  10. by islander on December 19, 2022 9:09 am

    😀 Smiley says to tell you that the sentencing can be determined through a type of karma which is the relationship between a person’s mental or physical action and the consequences following that action. If enough people violate and no longer value the principles of Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion, the ultimate sentence is the loss of those freedoms in one’s country.

    Like I told you before, 😀 Smiley is quite wise !!

    Ahhhhhhhhhhh. You're a hoot, there, buddy.

    So the teacher didn't want cursing in the fukking classroom. Maybe she didn't want dick jokes, or calling females cunts. I find that as a reasonable assumption by a teacher.

    There's also a huge difference here. It has nothing to do with what the students want to be called. It has to do with the firing of the teacher for two parts of the first amendment. The first is freedom of HER speech, and the second is her right to her religion that she believes.

    She never insisted others (adult of kid) call them anything they did not wish to be called. If she did that, it would be an issue (maybe). But it was her way of speaking.

    So unless you can show it's ILLEGAL to call a person by a pronoun they don't like (assuming it doesn't fall into degrading or vile speech). In Spanish, the term "pinche" is sometimes used before a name. Yes, it's colloquial, but it's a definite term of hatred or disdain. If that were used, I could see an issue.

    Oh, the pinche "smiley" crap is just annoying and you go off track when you have him talk.

  13. by islander on December 19, 2022 11:36 am

    Damn is not a cuss word except to some people, (in Christian belief) it means to be condemned by God to suffer eternal punishment in hell.
    "be forever damned with Lucifer"

    "Oh, the pinche "smiley" crap is just annoying and you go off track when you have him talk." LoL !!!

    Try to remember that when these guys talk (this is something everybody else knows),



  14. by oldedude on December 19, 2022 8:54 pm
    No, if Lead went off track, I'd be the first one to say that.

    The difference is that you use "smiley" to mock and be stoopid. And you actually don't make much sense when you talk "smiley". So you don't prove any point. with smiley, you waste space. continually.

    Most of us will get on a bandwagon. but this is constant with "smiley".

    back to the subject at hand.

    I'm beginning to get the impression that od doesn't like 😀 Smiley.

    I don't understand why? 😀 Smiley is a very nice guy and he has never done anything to od.

    😀 Smiley just laughs it off and says ya can't please all the people all the time! 👍

    North Carolina Public School Officials ‘Unlawfully’ Fired Professor For Opposing ‘Racially Divisive Ideology,’ Lawsuit Alleges

    The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction “unlawfully” fired Dr. David Phillips from its Governor’s School in 2021 for opposing “racially divisive ideology,” a lawsuit filed by the legal group Alliance Defending Freedom, who represents Phillips, alleged Monday.

    The Governor’s School, a publicly funded summer program for advanced high school students, fired Phillips after he delivered “three optional seminars” which opposed “critical theory” and “the increasing bias and lack of viewpoint diversity in higher education,” ADF said in a press release. After the lectures, “a group of students and staff members reacted with open hostility, referencing race, gender, sexual orientation, and religion in their comments and questions,” ADF claimed.

    Phillips reportedly stayed after the lecture to answer the questions and offered to meet the students at a later time, but was fired the day after the last seminar, according to ADF’s lawsuit.
