Science teacher suspended for homophobic rant about his school's club for homosexual students

Parkersburg South High School teacher David Foggin was put on suspension last week after writing a homophobic comment on Facebook

The West Virginia science teacher made a negative statement about the school's gay-straight alliance club

Most of the school community are in support of Mr Foggin, and held a rally on his behalf last Friday morning

The protesters held up signs reading 'Freedom of Speech' and 'We Love Foggin' while wearing shirts with 'Team Foggin' printed on them

Only a small group of students turned out to protest against the teacher

His suspension will be reviewed by the school board after Spring Break, and they will decide whether the suspension is paid or unpaid
