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

airlift[LifeSiteNews.com] The school board of Maine's Regional School Unit 22 was ordered to pay $40,000 to an area father and activist it tried to bar from public meetings and other community functions on school grounds for exposing the district's adoption of radical and obscene sex-related materials in schools.

"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.
