Primary School Teachers 'Could Face Sack' For Refusing To Promote Gay Marriage
By John Bingham 18 Nov 2012 Liz Truss, an education minister, refused to rule out the possibility that teachers, even in faith schools, could face disciplinary action for objecting on grounds of conscience.
Miss Truss said simply that it was impossible to know what the impact of the legislation would be at this stage.
Her admission came in a letter to a fellow Conservative MP, David Burrowes, last month.
Mr Burrowes, a practising Christian, originally wrote to Maria Miller, the equalities minister, raising concerns about the impact on schools of the Coalitions plans to change the marriage laws.
It followed the publication of a legal opinion by Aidan ONeill QC, a barrister in the same London chambers as Cherie Blair, commissioned by the Coalition for Marriage, which campaigns against same-sex unions.
Mr ONeill, an expert on human rights, was asked to advise on the impact redefining marriage to include same-sex couples could have on schools, churches, hospitals, foster carers and public buildings. Among his conclusions was that schools could be within their statutory rights to dismiss staff who wilfully fail to use stories or textbooks promoting same-sex weddings.
Parents who object to gay marriage being taught to their children would also have no right to withdraw their child from lessons, he argued. And, in theory, the fact that a school was a faith school would make no difference, he added.

You’re just as well that you couldn’t get into their heads. If you had, it would feel like you had visited a sewer, naked.
that’s a cool hot horse
No gay people are walking into my room.
Well, bye then.
Figured this one was for the grill.
Very true, and almost completely this goes under the radar.
Be my guest. I share.
They use terror tactics. If a person or a business speaks out against them they rally and apply pressure on that person/business.
They also do not use homos in their ads on TV, they use normal actors or atheletes so as to appear non threatening.
We have to fight back by letting everyone know that they are after the children. Use these articles to email everyone you know.
IMost people are unaware that this is happening. The first they will hear is from their kids when it is already to late and laws are already in place.
Pretty blatant on this thread. He or she came “out of the closet” apparently, after lying low for a couple of months.
Rumor has it that you’re the only person to have surrendered offering no resistance whatsoever in the “How many Justin Biebers could you take in a fight?” test.
In fact as the story goes, you are said to have rum and hid at the very mention of a single, slightly irritated Bieber approaching and that you were rejected as an applicant for the role of “Surrogate Bieber” in his Fighting Bieber Swarm.
The only regrettable thing about your zotting is that now we can only torment you in absentia, rather than watch as you wither and cry your little girly tears.
Okay, Gunner, Sir!
Oh Lordy! I used to like Aquaman!
Well, I can beat 30 Biebers!
I bet Gunner can beat 50.
Not YOU, dammit!
I got a 34.
It appears the upper limit on the Bieber Swarm is around 35 - 40. But we could give Gunner credit for five or six Biebers fleeing the scene before actual contact.
LOL! OH! Okay. It was pretty easy though... Not being gay...
Awww... Justy wants a kiss. Poor little guy.
Don’t hit him too hard.
