People across the United States asked for a Howell teacher's termination in e-mails described by school administrators as "vulgar and threatening."
The messages arrived in response to media reports about the Thomas More Law Center filing a federal lawsuit on behalf of Sandra Glowacki, alleging teacher Jay McDowell violated her son's First Amendment rights when he removed the then-16-year-old Daniel Glowacki from class in October 2010 after the teen said he did not accept homosexuality because of his religious beliefs.
