NBC 10 Philadelphia reports, an assistant principal at Downingtown STEM Academy in Chester County, Pa. has been placed on administrative leave after a video surfaced of him yelling and swearing at pro-life teenagers on a sidewalk near the school last Friday.

The video, posted on YouTube by one of the teens, showed a heated verbal exchange between Zach Ruff and a 16-year-old protesting the “holocaust of abortion.” 

This occured as students were leaving school for the day. Ruff appeared to be directing traffic away from the school when the incident was recorded.

“Innocent children are being murdered in our society,” declared one of the protesting teens in video footage.

“They’re not children. They’re cells!” yells Ruff.

When one the teens disagrees, Ruff replies, "Then take it out, if it can live on its own, it's friggin' awesome."

“Sir, you need to turn to Jesus Christ,” a pro-life teen says.

“Listen here, son. I am as gay as the day is long. I don’t give a (expletive) 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 said.

Downingtown Area School District posted a message on its Facebook page regarding the incident:

“We do not condone or support the conduct expressed in the video and are deeply disappointed that this incident occurred. His conduct does not represent the values of the school district or the respect we expect our employees to show for the civil rights of others,” the statement said.

Ruff will remain on leave pending a formal investigation, said Patricia McGlone, director of public information for the Downingtown School District.
