FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. — A Wake County high school teacher is under fire for comments he made in an article published online comparing the school where he works to a concentration camp, according to WTVD.

Fuquay-Varina High School biology teacher Ray Fournier later apologized for his comments in an updated version of the article that promotes his book, Education Reformation.

Fournier has been a public school teacher for 13 years. Despite that, his book urges Christian parents to “rescue” their children from public schools

He never mentioned Fuquay-Varina High School in the article, but said the school where he works is a “concentration camp dedicated to the spiritual death of those imprisoned behind these walls.”

Fournier writes that public education is not religiously neutral, but rather deliberately indoctrinating students to turn away from God and moral and ethical living.

He cited a couple he knows whose daughter came out as a lesbian after attending public school for one year.

“I warned them about the spiritual dangers of public education, but sadly they ignored my warning. It was as if their daughters where [sic] placed inside a spiritual gas chamber. It didn’t take long for the poison to take effect. Within a year’s time, one of them even became a lesbian. My heart broke each and every time I saw her walk around campus with her girlfriend,” Fournier wrote.
