In August of this year, controversy erupted after Florida school teacher Jerry Buell was suspended for posting anti-gay statements on his Facebook page. The case because a Religious Right cause célèbre and Liberty Counsel immediately stepped in to represent him.
Buell’s Liberty Counsel attorney, Harry Mihet, was the guest on “WallBuilders Live” radio program today where he asserted that the reason he fled communist Romania was to escape just this sort of “oppression”:
I grew up in communist Romania and this is exactly the kind of thing that would happen there … and we learned to live with this kind of oppression as a way of life. But we fled Romania to escape to the land of the free so that we wouldn’t have to deal with such intolerance.
