Teacher Refuses To Stand Down After Posting Anti-Muslim Tweets To His Profile

A Texas teacher is in hot water for his social media posts slamming Islam. The Christian conservative teacher says he's not backing down. He's now being investigated and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is asking for a meeting with the school board to discuss their social media policy.

James A. Bretney, a Houston teacher at Sterling Aviation High School, routinely posts controversial messages on social media. On his Facebook posts, he has disparaged homosexuals. On YouTube, he produces videos with a controversial preacher who says 'fat lesbians don't get raped'.

Bretney created a big stir on Twitter, however, when he posted anti-Muslim sentiments.

"Love Jesus or go to hell. You have been warned," read one post.

"Embrace Islam and you embrace death," read another.

A few posts featured beheaded children, and Bretney included the message, "Islam did this."

A CAIR representative came forward to admonish Bretney and ask the school to review its policy. "The reason we are concerned is because he's a teacher. If he wasn't a teacher, this conversation probably wouldn't be taking place," said CAIR Executive Director Mustafa Carroll.

Of course, it’s ironic for Muslims to be so outraged by anti-Islamic sentiments when their own religion is, like Bretney, so outspoken against homosexuality and other religions. But the teacher is unapologetic for his comments. "This is the problem. We are in a spiritual conflict with Islam," he said. "We are in a clash of civilizations with Islam."

As the school investigates Bretney, the teacher refuses to discuss his employment. Twitter has already made a decision about his posts, though, and shut down his Twitter account.

It's not part of this country to look at people from a certain racial or religious background and just make these assumptions that they're bad people and to express that message again for students to hear that...it's unconscionable," said Ruth Nasrullah, the CAIR-Houston Communications Coordinator.
