MINOT, N.D. — “I was in good standing at the hospital the day I went to the school board meeting, and I was in good standing all the way through until nine later when I was served notice by the president of our board.”
“This mandate across the board, that’s a tough place to go,” Dr. Horak told the school board while dressed in his scrubs. “Who does God put in charge of their kids? Their parents,” he continued during an approximately five-minute speech. “God gave each one of these kids to their parents. Their parents speak for them, and they may be wrong, dumb or perfect in their decision-making, but it’s still their responsibility.”
In an interview after his firing, Dr. Horak told WDAY he wouldn’t have done anything differently.
