A blogger for a school in Utah has lost his job after he wrote a post explaining what a homophone is and his boss accused him of promoting a gay agenda.
Until his recent dismissal, Tim Torkildson worked as a social media strategist for the Nomen Global Language Center in Provo, a private language school which aims to help students with their English.
One of Torkildon’s tasks was writing about the English language and his last post had focused on explaining what homophones are.
When Torkildson’s boss, and the school’s owner, Clarke Woodger read the article he called him into his office and told him he was fired.
‘Now our school is going to be associated with homosexuality,’ Woodger complained, according to Torkildson, who posted their exchange on his blog.
Hay, yew never no.
