Maine School Board Ordered to Pay Father $40k after Blacklisting Him for Exposing Obscene LGBT Books

Calvin Freiburger : Sep 21, 2022  LifeSiteNews.com

"We've been asleep at the wheel for the last decade or two, thinking that when we drop our kids off to school, it's just like when we went to school. And it's not." -Shawn McBreairty

"I was exposing what the school board chair said, which is basically that pornography is OK in the context of a book," he told Epoch. "They were basically shocked.
