I am sure that there are states who would welcome this person as a teacher in their school system, Connecticut should not be one of them.

It seems impossible that his bias could be hidden from his lesson plans.

Hate and violence is part of his response to alternative life styles, what is his response to an unruly teen? I am with Angel, take your kids out of his classroom.

Let's all jump on the wagon and destroy this kid. I feel bad for him that he thinks the church that coddles molestors has any standing.
Who's running the capitol police; barnaby fife. selective enforcement by politically appointed hacks.
The kid said he regretted what he did, is sorry and learned his lesson. Something he did away from the classroom. To bad we can't take out restraining orders against this rubbish in he LOB.

Don't speak out....Move to another state

Are you kidding me? This guy is a teacher...and he does idiotic things like this? Granted, we all do stupid things. But this takes the cake. Have some restraint, man. Or use Gmail. They have a button marked "undo".

Or right wing "Christian" agendas as shown by this teacher. Teachers are hired to teach and not debate politics by threatening.

I hate to say it but all the Govt is afraid of the common people at this point. Paranoid if you like. These are bad times. Are we turnning to a nation of the Govt vs the people?
The threats against Bush were a mile long by our peace loving Liberals. Where was the outcry over that?
If we can vote in someone like Obama that has no ability to lead, what could I expect from people today? Not much but Self interest. Its all about me!
"It's all about me" left for a Texas location.

Seriously, both parties have the extremes and nuts. Real discussions by real people of apposing views is what government should be about. Then you get results that are meaningful.

Get this man out of the schools! How could any gay kid or coworker ever be expected to deal with this man again? Just substitute the word "Jew", "Black", "Hispanic", or any other ethnic minority for the word "gay" in his hate letter, and it becomes obvious that this sick, hateful man must lose his teaching license.

Another advertisement for the wackos that permeate the Catholic Church. They committ all sorts of anti-social acts, then say a few prayers and "everything's ok again". What ever happened to Love Thy Neighbor?

In Connecticut, it's ok to cram left wing liberal BS down our kids throats... Everyone is outraged on this blog not because of the threat, but because of his conservative view on religion and gay marriage...God forbid someone teaches our children a different view point then what you Connecticut/Mass liberals want...

First of all, this bill was a bunch of crap. Separation of church and state. Anyone ever heard of that ? Obviously not these two legislators. That is where the uproar should be. We have 2 elected officials with a personal agenda attempting to pass a law which would go directly against the Constitution. Doesn't anyone see our freedoms being taken away slowly but surely ?

wow,
I've had a parent harassing me for over 2 years. posted my address and whatever else she wanted. tried to have her arrested , no dice, so now i have to through a entire court proceeding. She falsely accused me of all sorts of stuff, funny, I still have my job, but still have to deal with this wack job, because of freedom of speech. Maybe if I were a politician, I would not have had to go through this for 2 years. HI ANGEL !!!!!!!!!!

The "speech police" strike again. I see nothing threatening in his writing. Can we not speak or write our minds anymore? Our laws are too ambiguous, 2nd degree harrassment-PSHAW!

Misguided clown. Double standard.

If he spewed antisemitic or antiblack venom, bet he'd be out of a job. Teacher? Where? Why? Answer: Church sponsored homophobia is still ok.(And they'd know best) Maybe he could teach civics and recast the US Constitution that still which guarantees equal rights for all.
Jump on that for separation of Church and state.

Kind of like all the liberal bias in their lesson plans.

As a fellow teacher and a fellow catholic I find this man's behavior to be despicable. His email comes down to hate. He should be suspended immediately and should not be allowed to teach.
A public school teacher has the job to embrace diversity.
Please know that all Catholics do not feel this way about homosexuality, and that these behaviors are unacceptable in the teaching community, I hope the other teachers at Pulaski and in New Britain know that this reflects on you as well. If you allow this hate to exist in your walls, you should be ashamed.
