Utah substitute teacher shames child over adoption by two dads

Louis van Amstel said the Utah teacher who shamed his son for saying he was grateful to be adopted by two dads "really hurt us."

A fifth-grade child shared with classmates that he was grateful he was going to be adopted this year by his two foster dads.

The substitute teacher didn’t let the words of the 11-year-old student pass back in November without letting him know, “That’s nothing to be thankful for,” according to The Salt Lake Tribune

The Utah teacher continued lecturing the class for 30 minutes saying that “homosexuality is wrong,” “two men living together is a sin,” and “why on earth would you be happy about that?”

Three girls asked the teacher before leaving the classroom and getting the principal. The teacher was escorted from the Deerfield Elementary School in Cedar Hills, south of Salt Lake City.

One of the boy’s foster fathers, Louis van Amstel, who was on multiple seasons of “Dancing With the Stars,” said he wonders how the teacher was allowed in the classroom to begin with.
