Teacher’s Facebook rant: Gay marriage same as ‘murder, lying, stealing, cheating’

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

BUHLER, Kan. — A Kansas middle school teacher has ignited a firestorm in the small rural Kansas community of Buhler after posting an anti-gay rant on Facebook in which he said same-sex marriage is akin to “murder, lying, stealing, or cheating.”

Jack Conkling

On the evening following President Barack Obama’s announcement supporting marriage equality for same-sex couples, Jack Conkling — a social studies teacher at Prairie Middle School, who also works as an assistant freshman women’s basketball coach at Buhler High School — wrote that he was driven to comment on the issue:

“All this talk in the news about gay marriage recently has finally driven me to write. Gay marriage is wrong because homosexuality is wrong. The Bible clearly states it is sin. Now I do not claim it to be a sin any worse than other sins. It ranks in God’s eyes the same as murder, lying, stealing, or cheating.

“His standards are perfect and ALL have sinned and fallen short of His glory. Sin is sin and we all deserve hell. Only those who accept Christ as Lord and daily with the help of the Spirit do their best to turn from sin will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. There aren’t multiple ways to get to Heaven. There is one. To many this may seem close minded and antagonistic, but it doesn’t make it any less true.

“Folks I am willing to admit that my depravity is just as great as anyone else’s, and without Christ I’d be destined for hell, if not for the undeserved grace of God. I’m not condemning gay marriage because I hate gay people. I am doing it because those who embrace it will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. And I desire that for no one.”

Conkling, whose Facebook page stated that he is a devout Christian, was immediately taken to task by the chairman of the Hutchinson chapter of of the Kansas Equality Coalition, Jon Powell, who said, “Conkling’s inflammatory statements could make students think it’s OK to bully fellow students.”

Conkling’s Facebook page, most of which is now private for friends only, listed numerous current students among his 450+ “friends.” Powell termed the posting “reckless,” “dangerous” and “irresponsible.”

Craig Williams, Prairie Middle School’s principal told The Hutchinson News the school does not have a Facebook policy for teachers.

“We’re looking into it,” Williams said, but said he could not talk about a personnel matter.

Williams did not respond to requests for comment from LGBTQ Nation, nor did district Superintendent Dan Stiffler, who told the local press that the school district’s administrators had a technology committee already looking at a policy for staff regarding use of social media.

Kansas Equality Coalition Executive Director Thomas Witt told LGBTQ Nation that although Kansas does have anti-bullying laws on the books, situations like Conkling’s are problematic.

“Mr. Conkling’s remarks may hurt himself in the short run but the problem is the negative impact on the LGBT students in the long run,” he said.

Witt noted that although the KEC is not asking for his resignation or termination due to this incident, it does serve to raise awareness that school district employees and students are engaging in gay bashing.

  38. How is gay marriage the same as “murder, lying, stealing and cheating”? Something is wrong with his dome piece. Fire him and send him to the looney bin! Sorry, believing in ghosts and fairy tales is not normal. Since Obama announced his support, homophobes have lost their minds. It’ll only get worse until something is done.

    Posted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 8:29pm
  39. I love how many of these people try to sugar coat there condemnation and hatred of LGBT people. He’s basically saying that if you don’t come out against gays and gay marriage then not only are the gays going to Hell, but so are you.

  41. Remember there are those who would like to have those of us who express support for LGBT equality on Facebook to be fired as well. As long as this teacher does not harass or slander a specific individual or discriminate against his LGBT students in the classroom, he is still entitled to his freedom to express his opinion as despicable, ignorant, and misinformed as it is. Calling for his firing without evidence of illegal wrongdoing is undemocratic. However, denouncing his homophobic remarks in a civil manner is most certainly democratic.

  48. How sad, especially that he’s a Social Studies teacher. He should know better than to disparage any of his students like that. ANY teacher who insults their students to such a degree, whether it’s because they’re gay or a different ethnicity or left-handed, should be reprimanded.

  54. I sent an email to the superintendent of his school system! I have a gay son and was the ex director of a glbtq youth group for about 15 years. PLUS I was a middle school teacher for 35 years! This teacher must stop his homophobic hate…or at least…keep his stupid mouth SHUT!!!!!

  57. Melanie –

    As a survivor of sexual assault, this issue is personal to me.

    Despite President Obama’s veto threat, Republicans just passed a bill that denies protections for victims of domestic violence if they are legal immigrants, Native Americans, or members of the LGBT community.

    Republicans are calling it their “Violence Against Women Act.” The truth is any bill that discriminates against women because of their ethnic background or sexual orientation is not worthy of being called the Violence Against Women Act.

    Will you stand with us for protecting all women in the Violence Against Women Act?

    Stand with President Obama: Help us reach 100,000 strong for a real Violence Against Women Act — Add your name today >>

    Thank you for your support.

  66. I thought that teachers weren’t supposed to state these kinds of beliefs in the classroom! I know that teachers on ANY level are NOT supposed to give their opinion on politics, religion and other topics that would fall under this, at least where I live in Canada. I know for a fact even some of my profs have had to keep their mouths shut when an election came up. As a future educator and gay, I will never state my (dis)belief in one or more said groups. I will only encourage that we see the similarities, and appreciate the differences we all have and share. This man is a disgrace to teachers on all levels, he needs to be fired based on the fact that he can’t just rant and rave about this. There is a time and place and Facebook is NOT the place to air your dirty laundry; Good or bad. I just hope for the sake of the children, he didn’t instill hatred or anything of the sort.

  72. I am bisexaul and I completely support the gay community and equal rights for everyone, gay or straight. However, I also support his right to post whatever he wants on his fb, whether I agree with him or not. He has the right to post an anti gay status on his fb page. But I will also say, being gay is definitely NOT like murder, theft, cheating and/or lying. Being gay doesn’t harm anyone.

    Posted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 9:15pm
  73. NO. This man should not be fired. He is allowed to spout whatever filth he wants to on his private, personal site.

    You need to understand that when you call for these morons to be fired you put those of us on the other side in jeopardy, too. I do not want a precedent set that statements on a personal site can be a friable offense. If he brings that attitude into the classroom (and how can he not?) then THAT is where he needs to be fired.

    Really. This is a very dangerous thing to do. Don’t put all of us teachers who speak out against bigotry inn our sites and make very strong statements in favor of equality and against bigotry in danger of being fired. We are already sticking our necks out to create safe spaces for our students.

  74. If you really understand the contexts in which the Books of the Bible were written and you can read the Hebrew text of the Old Testament and the Greek Text of the New Testament, you will find nothing about homosexuality being a sin.

    Posted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 9:26pm
  76. Brian, I have no opinion on whether the man should be fired. However, privacy on facebook is a mere illusion. As a teacher, students will look you up, parents will look you up and posts you make are visible to people even when you think they are not. As a general rule, facebook is not a wise place to post strong statements. It tends to only lead to trouble.

    Posted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 9:28pm
  77. Either way. It’s not in his classroom. Teachers are entitled to their freedom of expression just like anyone else when not on duty. I do not want a chilling affect on progressive minded teachers in heavily conservative areas. Or the other way around, for that matter.

    Posted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 9:30pm
  78. Well, my point is that posting strong statements on facebook is playing with fire. Furthermore, facebook blurs the distinction between personal and professional life.

    Posted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 9:36pm
  79. This serves as a good reminder to self monitor my profile right now to make sure that I don’t have anything too strong posted.

  83. the problem with homophobes. mostly those using the bible as slander is what they fail to realize is that the bible says “u should not take up a man as u would ur wife” hmmm…sounds like lusty sex to me. being gay is not a choice. having sex with many strangers is. falling in love is a compulsion of heartwarming desire. when done in all truth. homosexuality could never be the equivalent of anything more then simplistic human nature. the one thing we all look for. that one true soul mate. being homosexual is a sin. but ONLY if you do it for random recreation sad thing is straight ppl do it as well. so we’re all going to hell :) (i dont really believe in hell fyi..earth is hell enough no loving god would want to punish any of his creations. and if he is omnipotent why not give em another chance to reedeem themselves. thus endless cycle of reincarnation until ones mind reaches the point of gnostic salvation) they bring up sodom and gomora how ever u spell it idc. keep in mind there was prostitution…sex in the streets ppl having sex just to get off. murders. theft. it was a city given over to the carnal. most like your average day america. so if god was going to destroy us he would have already done so. not because we decided to let gay ppl get married. its not that serious ppl. dont let religion blind you. and fyi jesus said to love all others as i have loved you. he never once said “but fuck the gays,the pagans, the muslims blah blah blah” fyi srry to break it to y’all but christianity is just a different form of paganism. when u pray youre saying your “spells” when u go to church and sing praise and worship youre doing your “rituals” when u try and save sex for marriage your just reaffirming that sex is something that should b done in a loving manner to help keep the population surviving. am i anti-christian? hell no. im not anti religion anything. im just anti using your faith to justify taking others rights away. the bible was used to state slavery of the african americans it was used to discriminate against inter racial marriage. it was used to say its okay to have polygamy. it was used as an excuse to impede on the rights of others several thousand times. so please. do as youre bible says and love others as you wished to be loved and stop making youre religion look bad and this goes for all religious thumpers. its not your choice. we dont tell u who to marry. so dont tell the lbgt community. and fyi….the bible also said it was custom for parents to arrange who u married. its only been a recent thing for ppl to b able to decide who to marry. so if u want to live the bible life. start letting your parents decide who u marry. dont like that idea? neither do i.

  88. judging..which he clearly has hit the nail on the head. Sad that a teacher, someone whom which children look up to would post such crap. In reality our world truly saddens me. It doesn’t matter who you are white, black, gay, bi, straight and so on people should just be able to be themselves without the judging and i’m more than sure that this does not help the bullying issues..which have gone on for many of years and things like this for sure do not help making matters any easier. I dealt with it when i was a child, dropped out of school because of bullies..and i still pay for the fact i let them win today. Yes i am gay, but nobody knew i was then and i can’t imagine how much worse things could have really been on me. people tell me all the time i’m gonna go to hell..while most that tell me are pure hypocrites!! Yeah they go to church on Sunday but how many people in a year can i count i know you slept with and how many beers do you drink on a daily basis..well i want this person to tell me just one more time how i’m going to hell..cause that’s when i’m gonna say well i’m sorry you feel this way..but i have many reasons to make me think i will make it to heaven..first off i am a believer in god..but the one thing that i just know is my key to heaven is my heart..i have one of the kindest hearts a person could ever have. I treat people with respect and how i want to be treated. I have friends of all kinds..all of which i consider a part of my family no matter if their white,black, gay, bi or straight they all mean the world to me. I am very glad that i have such a awesome group of people in my life that i care and love each and every one of them dearly. I am truly blessed. In my opinion the teacher should be fired..not only for his post on fb but for the issues he may possibly cause from what he wrote. A teacher is someone a child looks up to for guidance, many children admire their teachers and say wow i wish i could be just like him or her. He has shown a horrible example to the children of his school..but not only those so many kids have a facebook and i’m sure many have read what he posted. Is sad that he set such a horrible example for children and he should truly be quite ashamed of his actions. He is truly a disgrace to teachers. I pray his hatred statements do not cause any problems for his students or other children whom have read his post. I think Karma will bite this one..or so i can say.. i hope so. May God Bless All Our Children! <3 <3

  91. He’s a social sciences teacher, wherever he did his degree I don’t know. I really feel for these kinds of people because it just shows you how narrow minded they are. They rest their trust on a portion of an ancient text where in the same paragraph it says not to eat crayfish, to stone people who work on Sunday, to kick your daughter out when she menstruates and to sell her into slavery and if she refuses…kill her for disobedience, and much more. This gentleman obviously is insecure about a few things to make such a pointless hate rant for no need, requirement or reason.

  94. Actually I agree with Brian. Getting him fired would only open the door to retaliation. The worse we can do to people like him who still think they’ll turn back the clock by spouting such drivel is to shake our heads sadly and go on about the business of affecting change and improving lives.

  100. Simply another Biblical challenged person trying to stand out! They need educated in the worst way because they inflame and ignite others narrow minded ways.

  104. Ya gotta remember a while back a woman lost her job as a teacher do to some person vacation pictures that she had posted on her Facebook page showing her and some adult friends toasting with a drink and having a bottle of alcohol in her hands,that in MY mind was wrong to fire her but this guy…this is not only endorsing but spreading hate. When you are in certain arenas you need to not only watch what you say but where you say them. Ok I’ll jump off my stump now.SL

  105. I may not like this guys opinion but he is entitled to it! It is in his own personal life and his personal Facebook page! He definitely needs to b educated on how God really is and loves everyone but he will have to answer to his own sin when it comes to God!

  106. This man needs to realize he has a responsibility as a mentor. If you so choose to post your “personal” opinions then do not allow your students to friend you on facebook. IMO friending students is in itself a very controversial issue and for many crosses the line even when you are responsible with your posts

  107. A mouth can be as dangerous as a loaded weapon. How do these fanatics get away with this behavior? This is the same state where sodomy between gay people is still a crime, even though the Supreme Court ruled against it for All 50 States, no ‘special’ treatment for Kansas. Redneck politics…

  108. God also wanted you to love your neighbor and leave the judgement to him!!

  109. I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw that his interests include John Wayne Gacy, Slim Jims, Mountain Dew, and Cheez It’s. This guy is a real winner, ding ding ding! Please keep the idiots rolling.

  113. Let me guess, his privacy settings are virtually non-existent, how convenient.
