Video: School Official Violates Freedom of Speech of Pro-life Christians

Video: School Official Violates Freedom of Speech of Pro-life ChristiansDean of Students, Zach Ruff, in Chester County, Pennsylvania, cursed at two pro-life Christian students with an organization called Project Frontlines who were speaking out against the holocaust of abortion where an estimated 60 million unborn who have been killed in America since Roe v. Wade created the right to abortion.

Ruff swore at and violated the student’s right of freedom of speech as the students were on the public sidewalk and was not harassing anyone.

In the video, Ruff walks up to the students and threatened them numerous times that he was going to call the police because they were so-called “trespassing” on school property, which was not fact.

“They’re not children. They’re cells. Go home!” yelled Ruff.

“Sir, you need to turn to Jesus Christ,” one of the teens replied.


“Listen here, son. I am as gay as the day is long. I don’t give a f**k what Jesus tells me about what I should and should not be doing. You are harassing public school students and I will call the police if you don’t shut up,” Ruff stated.

As a result, Superintendent Lawrence Mussoline, responded after the video became public.

Last Friday, at the Downingtown STEM Academy two protestors arrived on the sidewalk. The Dean of Students (who I hired a few years ago to take that position and who I have a lot of respect for) went out presumably to ensure that students and parents leaving the property could make the turn onto Manor Avenue. What ensued was comportment that was, quite frankly, something that I would never have expected from this educational leader.

In the past two days, I have received passionate emails both in support of, and against, our decision to place this staff member on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.

Among the emails has been the suggestion that we did the wrong thing, that the incident on Friday did not rise to the level of concern to merit administrative leave.

I disagree.

For the past 50 plus years of DASD’s existence, dozens of your elected school board officials  have created the rules, guidelines and expectations for student and staff behavior. We will use those policies and guidelines to determine the next steps in this situation.

What I saw in the video that was sent to me a few days ago compelled me to take the first step that I, as CEO of this organization, am required to do. If you read further into the administrative guidelines for policy #317, you will see that our next step is to conduct “a reasonable, fair and objective inquiry”. That will happen very soon.

Throughout the entire disruption of the pro-life student by Ruff, the two students remained respectful even after Ruff kept launching the revolting verbal assault on them in front of other students and parents.
