So reports WFTV (thanks to Prof. Howard Friedman (Religion Clause) for the pointer. For more on the original story, see this post.

The Orlando Sentinel also reports that the teacher (Jerry Buell) has been ordered by the school to remove certain statements by Buell on his school materials:

[T]he school district questioned statements on Buell’s webpage and syllabus that expressed his belief in God.

On his school webpage, Buell wrote that he tries to “teach and lead my students as if Lake Co. Schools had hired Jesus Christ himself.”

His syllabus also offered this warning to students: “I teach God’s truth, I make very few compromises. If you believe you may have a problem with that, get your schedule changed, ’cause I ain’t changing!” On a separate document, he also said the classroom was his “mission field.”

[Buell’s lawyer, Harry Mihet of Liberty Counsel] said the webpage was since removed and Buell has been instructed to remove some parts of his syllabus.
