Skutt Catholic Teacher Dismissed for Being Gay Gets Hired at Public School; One Student Will Follow Him There

Last month, I posted about Matthew Eledge, an English teacher at Skutt Catholic High School in Omaha, Nebraska.

He was also Head Coach of the school’s incredibly successful Speech Team — they’d won the State tournament four years in a row — which is why this image greets you on Skutt’s website:

Despite everything he brought to the school, though, administrators there told him he would not be invited back next fall if he married his boyfriend.

There was a Change.org petition in his defense, but the school leaders took advantage of their right to fire people who are gay. (Because Jesus only married women… or something like that.)

That’s why I’m thrilled to say that Eledge has been hired at Millard North High School, a public school about 10 minutes away from Skutt:

Faith Healer Cindy Jacobs Claims She Turned Metal into Bone

Surgeons, set down your scalpels. Cindy Jacobs, co-founder of Generals International, has turned your hard-earned diplomas into mere toilet paper.

On a recent trip to Argentina, Cindy and her husband Mike Jacobs took to the stage in a packed church for two nights of healing the ill and broken in an untraditional (and medically unsound) way. Armed with only a microphone and the presence of 2,000 gullible attendees, Cindy, with the Lord inside her (but, like, not in a sexy way), miraculously straightened bowed legs, turned metal to bone, kicked the habit out of druggies, and made the immobile run maniacally.
