"According to Townhall.com, a teacher at West Point High School in Virginia was fired just last Thursday over his religious objections to using male pronouns when referring to a student who is biologically female but identifies as male.
The West Point School Board unanimously voted 5-0 to dismiss 47-year-old French teacher Peter Vlaming following a four-hour hearing.
Vlaming cited his Christian faith and told his superiors that he was willing to use the student's name and simply avoid using feminine pronouns but he says the school rejected that compromise.
Showing aggression toward the religious rights and freedoms of Mr. Vlaming, school superintendent Laura Able and the school board accused Mr. Vlaming of creating a "hostile learning environment" by simply using the proper pronouns for the student based on her biological sex. The school clearly has a double standard since it has no policy regarding the use of gender pronouns for students, but its hiring policy specifically states it does not discriminate against teachers based on their religious beliefs.
Many parents and students support Vlaming, with over 100 students walking out of class the next day to protest the unfair actions of the board."
