UNION TOWNSHIP - After a Union Township teacher allegedly posted anti-gay remarks on her Facebook page, many questions have been raised as to the legality of such postings.Experts say that while teacher Viki Knox's comments may be unpopular, they are not illegal and would likely be protected under the First Amendment.Since Knox didn't use a school computer or post the comments that likened homosexuality to cancer during school hours, she also did not technically violate any Union School District policies, experts say.Still, Knox could still be in hot water under anti-bullying laws.

Some predict that the sensitive case could wind up in the U.S. Supreme Court.Union Twp. teacher gets heat for Facebook commentsGay rights group to protest at Union Twp. school meeting
