The discussion was about a teacher who was removed for attempting to censor the free speech and religious rights of one of his students:

The SCRIPTURE which was CENSORED, which was posted with NO COMMENTS, is the following:

But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you, Matthew 11:24

There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel. Deuteronomy 23:17

And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel. 1Kings 14:24

They die in youth, and their life is among the sodomites. Job 36:14

`And a man who lieth with a male as one lieth with a woman; abomination both of them have done; they are certainly put to death; their blood is on them. Lev 20:13

Here’s the message "explaining" why SCRIPTURE should be CENSORED:
