‘Go to Hell’ with all the Aborted Babies: School Principal Screams at Pro-Life Teens
DOWNINGTOWN, Pa, (LifeSiteNews) – An administrator was captured last week on video yelling an obscenity at two teenagers carrying pro-life signs on the sidewalk outside a “science-based” high school.
A day after a video of the incident was posted on YouTube, the school district placed assistant principal Zachary Ruff on administrative leave and issued an apology.
Ruff confronted Connor Haynes, 16, and sister Lauren, 19, outside STEM Academy. He stepped within inches of the boy to say, “Alright, alright, listen, sonny I am as gay as the day is long and twice as sunny. I don’t give a f**k what you think Jesus tells me about what I should or should not be doing.”
Ruff circled away from the pair a dozen times only to return, swearing at them and ordering them not to speak to “my children” several times, stepping within a few inches of Connor.
Ruff was so beside himself he appeared to perform a song and dance to distract motorists slowing down a few feet away, as Connor began witnessing to them. At one point, Ruff told the two pro-lifers, "You can go to hell" with all the aborted babies.
The maneuver caused one driver to stop his vehicle, come over and issue several profanities in defense of Connor.
“He can do whatever the f**k he wants,” the man told Ruff.
Ruff told the man he was holding up traffic. The man answered, “I don’t give a s**t.”
At the outset of the 18-minute exchange, which began only a few minutes after the Haineses arrived with pamphlets and signs, Ruff can be seen approaching, gesturing and ordering them away.
Connor says, “It’s a public sidewalk.”
Ruff responds, “Yes, it is, but you’re actually on school property.”
Connor countered,”You want to call the police?”
Ruff appears to accept that there is nothing more he can do and moves away, saying, “I’m more than happy to do that.”
But he returns immediately, declaring, “I wish to protect my students from unsightly things they don’t have to see. We do not have a single pregnancy in my school. I’ve been here five years.”
