The school board in Lake County, Florida, has reinstated teacher Jerry Buell who was removed from the classroom last week over comments he posted on his personal Facebook page expressing his disapproval of the legalization of homosexual “marriage” in New York.

Buell had been temporarily transferred to an administrative assignment after posting his view against same-gender marriage on Facebook. His comments reflected both the mainstream view that marriage should be between one man and one woman, as well as the definition of marriage found in the Florida constitution. However, a 2002 Mount Dora High School graduate lodged a complaint against the former “Teacher of the Year” about the comments. Following an investigation The school board concluded that Buell had done nothing wrong.”
