Teacher accused of Islamophobic tweets connected to post about imposing atheist beliefs on students

TORONTO — A high school teacher being investigated in connection with a Twitter account that discusses alleged Islamophobic beliefs is also being connected to a blog post that discusses imposing atheist beliefs on students.

A now-deleted Twitter account with the handle @firstatheist used a photo that former students say appears to be of Michael Marshall, an English teacher at Richmond Green Secondary School in Richmond Hill. The York Region District School Board said it was made aware of the Twitter account Thursday and Marshall was told about its investigation.

The board said it is looking into whether the account may have been hacked, or is an impersonation.  (more...)

First, they came for the Muslims...
