Minnesota Surgeon Fired After Speaking Out At School Board Meeting Against Mask Mandates
A Minnesota surgeon was terminated after speaking at a public school board meeting where he called for the district to allow parents to decide whether their child wears a mask to school.
Dr. Jeffrey Horak spoke to the Fergus Falls school board on Oct. 11 about the district’s new mask mandate that went into effect one day before, Fox News reported. Horak offered a religious argument for why parents should opt their child into wearing masks in school buildings or not.
“Who does God put in charge of these kids? Their parents. God gave each one of these kids … to their parents and they speak for them. They may be wrong, they may be dumb, they may be perfect in their decisions,” Horak said. “But it’s still their responsibility. It’s not yours … Honor their wishes, either side of the fence.”
