Portland teacher being persecuted for opposing Planned Barrenhood March 25, 2013

That’s the claim, anyways, and from what I’ve seen from 3 articles, it seems he was a teacher in good standing until he opposed the forced shoving of Planned Barrenhood’s incredibly immoral, inappropriate materials down his students throats.  The teacher, Bill Diss, is now on forced leave and is likely to be fired from the very leftist, very tolerant, Portland Public Schools:

An Oregon high school teacher was escorted from the building by police this week over what is believed to be related to his continued opposition to Planned Parenthood’s presence in the classroom.

Bill Diss is a math and computer science teacher at Benson High School in Portland, and has taught at the school for 11 years. Diss has also become known in the school for his opposition to Planned Parenthood since 2007, when he first began organizing efforts during after-school hours to stop the furtherance of the abortion provider in the community.

“I certainly fight Planned Parenthood, which I certainly have a right to do,” he told reporters this week following the incident. “And that was all on the outside, until [last] year when they brought Planned Parenthood [into the school].”

According to reports, last year, Planned Parenthood of Columbia Williamette began promoting its Teen Outreach Program (TOP) at Benson High School where Diss is employed as a teacher. In September, two representatives from the organization showed up at Diss’ classroom as they were hoping to speak to students. However, he would not let the representatives enter and asked them to leave……..

……Following Diss’ refusal to allow the representatives into his classroom, the principal and vice principal of the school paid Diss a visit and temporarily removed him from the class. The next day, he was forced to sit in on a Planned Parenthood presentation.

Later, Diss also took issue with TOP permission forms that were being sent home with some students that had his name on them. His attorney contacted Planned Parenthood and the school demanding that they retract statements on the form that appeared as if Diss approved of the program. They threatened a lawsuit, stating that Diss was being harassed for his beliefs about the organization.

Ever since, Diss says that the school has been sending him regular notes that question his teaching skills and methods. He has been required to attend numerous hearings, and was told two weeks ago that his teaching contract would not be renewed.

On Tuesday, administrators notified Diss that he was being placed on administrative leave “pending a recommendation to the superintendent that you be dismissed from your employment with Portland public schools for reasons that have been discussed with you.” He told reporters that he was given a few minutes to gather his belongings before he was escorted out by police and asked not to return.

That seems a bit odd. Being walked out at gun point, as it were. At least implied gun point.

Now, the school district and school administration, it being Portland and their being professional educators, are almost certain liberal to hardcore leftist. Thus, adherence to traditional morality and especially traditional Catholic belief is not only inexplicable, it is, to them, indicative of near-insanity.  Thus, once he opposed Planned Barrenhood coming into his class (what business would they have in a math/computer science class?), he was labeled as insubordinate.  How many teachers do you think Portland has fired for insubordination over the past 10 years? But I digress.

Then began the steady flow of poor conduct reports, bad performance reviews, etc., all painting the picture of Bill Diss as a renegade extremist, certainly an incompetent, and requiring his immediate dismissal.  Now, there could be side issues here that haven’t been reported, but if the reports are accurate, this is just an early example of what is going to become very widespread, if not omnipresent, over the next couple of decades.  Adhering to the constant belief of the Faith may well start to cost many of us, perhaps first only in certain fields or professions, or in certain regions of the country, but eventually the evil will spread just about everywhere, so long as this culture continues to hate God and do all it can in its pathetic, human attempts to kill Him.  Because there is either God, or Mammon.  We cannot serve both, and around the world, more and more people are making their choice, and I am sorry to report, they ain’t choosing God.

None of this even touches on how wrong it is for an organization like Planned Barrenhood to be given routine access to schoolchildren, but this is Portland.  Sadly, this happens all over the country.

He’s been fighting the good fight for years. I don’t know all the ins and outs of the long story, but I know someone who does, and I’m pretty Bill Diss is a hero.
