'I'll do it again': Teachers at Christian school fired after publicizing drag queen show

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Two teachers were fired from a Christian school in Baytown, Texas, after going to a drag queen performance and posting images and videos on Facebook about the event.

ABC 13 reported that two teachers were both fired from First Baptist Academy because they violated the school’s operating policies manual.

Kristi Maris reportedly went to an establishment in Houston, Texas, called Hamburger Mary’s, which frequently hosts events featuring men dressed as women. Their website boasts events such as the “SaturGay Brunch Hosted by Lady Shamu” and “Party with the Divaz.”

Maris posted photos and videos from her time at the show on Facebook, captioned “This was a blast!!!!” before being contacted by her school.

The senior pastor at the school pointed to the operating policies manual, which Maris had previously agreed to, which stated, “I will act in a godly and moral fashion at work, on Facebook and in my community.”

Despite agreeing to the clause, Maris couldn’t comprehend why attending a drag show was not seen as “godly” or “moral” and said that she felt she and her coworker “were treated like criminals” when they were contacted by the school over the phone about their jobs.

Both were fired via phone call and complained that they were not able to say goodbye to coworkers or students, according to Q1077 radio.

“They’re entertainers. I would’ve never thought in a million years that this would happen. Never. We were in disbelief. We still are. We were heartbroken. We had relationships with parents and the kids, and I didn’t even get to say goodbye to a lot of the kids,” Maris said.

“For almost 20 years, I’ve taught children to love each other. I’ve talked to them and told them, ‘You have to get along. God loves us all equally.’ And that’s the way we should be,” Maris went on. “We should love everybody, and that’s what we’ve been teaching, but they’re expecting us not to do that.”

The woman told the local ABC affiliate that while she won’t be teaching for the time being, she will continue to attend shows predominantly featuring men performing as caricatures of women.

“Oh yeah, I’ll do it again,” she said. “It was too much fun, and it was good music!”
