Viki Knox, NJ Teacher Who Called Homosexuality a 'Perverted Sin' on Facebook, Resigns

Remember Viki Knox, the New Jersey teacher who came under fire last September for calling homosexuality a "perverted sin" that "breeds like cancer" and attacking a school display recognizing Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender History Month?

Viki_knoxShe has resigned amidst a tenure charge case brought by the Board of Education, the Star-Ledger reports:

Knox, 51, a tenured special education teacher, submitted her resignation over the summer, the attorney, James Plosia, said. He would not comment further, saying only that "settlement talks are under way."

The board met with Plosia in closed session last night to discuss the matter but no action was taken.

A 21-year teaching veteran who has worked in Union since 2000, Knox previously said in court filings that she plans to seek a disability pension due to a back injury and on "psychological grounds." She filed papers for her pension on June 7.

  1. glad she is resigning and all that, but she wants a disability pension for a back injury?

    really was toting all that hate around so damaging to her spine the taxpayers have to take care of her forever?

  2. A disability claim based on "back injuries" and "psychological grounds" - both of which are easily fakes......great use of public tax dollars, to fund the pension of a religious bigot.

  4. She is the perfect example of the Republican crypto-racist taunt "Welfare Queen" -- a black tenured union teacher on fat retirement and disability entitlements.

    Yet somehow they defend her because, you know, she HATES GAY PEOPLE, so obviously she's a good person.

  5. Her disability is her prejudice, which causes her physical and psychological pain.

  6. She needs a dose of my favorite straight ally, CHRIS KLUWE:

    "Where, in all of Jesus’ teachings, did he ever say to deny the humanity of other human beings; where did the Son of God proclaim that mortal Man knew God’s will; where, pray tell, did Jesus ever say to harden your heart against those who may not be exactly the same as you?

    I say to you – nowhere. Nowhere does Jesus preach hate, or intolerance, or loathing. Nowhere does Jesus say, “You shall deny the humanity of gay people because it makes you feel uncomfortable”. Nowhere does Jesus say, “And the mortal men of the Church shall be the sole conduits of the Word of God, for they are perfect and infallible.” Nowhere, in all of the recorded teachings of Jesus, does it say anything about discrimination or prejudice.

    “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”

  8. I am sure that wonderful counter productive disgrace of a union, the Teachers Union, will find a way to get her a nice pension or the like of some kind.

  9. """"

    """"

    Admitting she's crazy is half the battle. Now she just needs to accept her latent homosexuality and be honest with the world...

  11. If she resigns then she should not be given a disability pension. She should have to PROVE via a physician that she really does have an injury - she shouldn't just file papers and get it.

    I hope she never gets hired again.

  13. I wonder how many gay kids she helped drive to suicide.

    I'll never forget the teachers like her when I went to school.

    But she'll get her union pension, she will.

  14. Knox is filing for a disability pension for a back problem and psychological grounds? She brought on her own psych issues for being a bigot and getting called out for it and now she wants to be paid for the rest of her life, the school board of her town needs to shut this foolishness down, the taxpayers shouldn't reward her for being a bigot.

  15. No matter what else, at least this monstrously hate-filled woman will no longer have the potential or opportunity to goad public school children into suicide.

    GOOD RIDDANCE!

  16. You all demand so much "tolerance", but when someone doesn't agree with your lifestyle you want their livelihood taken away and life destroyed, it just sounds like you all want to be oppressors and it's very hypocritical.
