Christian school suspends gay teacher

A strict Protestant primary school has suspended a teacher after he admitted he was homosexual and had found a partner, local tv station Omroep Gelderland reports.

The school’s board said the man’s sexual orientation conflicted with the school’s ethos, the broadcaster said, quoting a letter to parents and pupils.
‘The board respects the teacher’s choice but that choice of relationship conflicts with the foundation and aims of the school which he accepted as a teacher. This means the working relationship between the teacher and our school cannot be continued,’ the letter states.
