A Georgia teacher may have been forced into retirement for remarks that she made about President Obama’s faith.
According to Charisma News, teacher Nancy Perry has been removed from the classroom and will retire at the end of this school year after claiming Obama was a Muslim and supported abortion.
A parent claimed Perry said, "If your parents voted for Obama, they're evil and I don't see how your parents could vote for someone that's Muslim.”
She also allegedly said, "Any parent who supports him is not a Christian," and told students that Obama aborted babies after they came out of the womb.
Another parent accused Perry of showing children “internet propaganda.”
State President for the Georgia NAACP Francys Johnson said, "This is not about Mrs. Perry's First Amendment rights to express her extreme political opinions. The NAACP would defend Mrs. Perry's right as a private citizen to free speech. However, that is not appropriate for the classroom. That plus the menacing presence of her husband in the meeting with parent-teacher conference was designed for one purpose alone—to intimidate those parents."
Perry denied all accusations.
