Vicki Knox, a public school teacher, posted on her personal Facebook page objections to celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History month in her public school. Gay-marriage advocates are now demanding she be fired.  

"She has a right to say it. But she does not have a right to keep her job after saying it," one former public official said.

What did Viki Knox say? She did not call any person a name. She specifically called for kind and loving treatment of gay people and said that's the way she treated gay people in her life. 

We can’t afford to sit by while our right to speak the truth is taken away.  A Christian teacher like Viki shouldn’t have to face these sorts of attacks alone.

Your petition will be delivered to Union Township Superintendent Dr. Peter Martin – and we’ll deliver a copy to Viki, too, so that she knows how many thousands of decent, loving, law-abiding Americans are standing with her.

The Petition

I support Vicki Knox

Dear Dr. Martin,

I am writing in support of Viki Knox and her right to express her personal views on Facebook. The views that she expressed were neither hateful nor threatening, but rather called for kind and loving treatment of all people. All of our young people need to learn to express their beliefs with courage while treating others with respect, regardless of our disagreements.

I am deeply concerned that the campaign to get Viki Knox fired because she dares to disagree with the views of gay marriage advocates will set a dangerous precedent, damaging our rich tradition of free speech and religious liberty.

Just a few years ago, gay marriage advocates were claiming the right to “live and let live,” espousing values of tolerance and diversity. Today they seek to silence all opposing viewpoints, forcing Viki and other people of faith to choose between faith and job. Tolerance is not a one-way street. 

Thank you for taking the time to carefully address this important issue.
