Cincinnati Teacher Hired Then Fired When School Found Out He Is Gay

Music teacher John Zeng says that several hours after being hired at Cincinatti Hills Christian Academy, he was called back by school officials and asked if he is gay. When he asked why that was relevant, they replied that the school has a policy of not employing gay teachers. “What they did was very painful,” Zeng said. “I hope that many of their school families and supporters don’t feel that way.” School officials refuse to answer questions about the incident.
