What would Balzac say?

Here’s a titillating story:

[W]hen the social-media specialist for a private Provo-based English language learning center wrote a blog explaining homophones, he was let go for creating the perception that the school promoted a gay agenda.

Tim Torkildson says after he wrote the blog on the website of his employer, Nomen Global Language Center, his boss and Nomen owner Clarke Woodger, called him into his office and told him he was fired.

As Torkildson tells it, Woodger said he could not trust him and that the blog about homophones was the last straw.

“Now our school is going to be associated with homosexuality,” Woodger complained, according to Torkildson, who posted the exchange on his Facebook page.

This just doesn’t seem right to me. Isn’t there anything in the penal code to prevent this kind of thing? By firing this teacher, the school is being downright niggardly with its resources. If this were any other country, they’d have more sense, and would offer the poor man a faggot for his troubles (of course that would likely cause angina).  If I were in the school’s position, I’d probably want to contain the situation — you know, stick my finger in that dyke asap. Either that, or install a spillcock to relieve the pressure.
