    Yeah I saw that earlier today. I saw the local news footage on YouTube. Can't believe these kids and that special education teacher have the nerve to ask for something like this in 2013.

    It's ridiculous that the faculty member leading the charge is a special education teacher saying
    Diana Medley
    "I don’t believe they were born that way. I think life circumstances made them choose that. I think God made everybody equal… I have kids come to me because of their sexual preference. And they know I don’t agree with it, but care about you. And the same thing for special needs. God puts those people in our life for special reasons."

    It makes me worry that her "classes" are just her beating Autistic kids with a Bible.

    I don't believe anyone can be so stupid...but yet she's proving me wrong with her flawed, irrational logic. Even if she believes God made everyone equal, then where does she get off believing it's ok to create inequality?

    Damn these christians. Why christianity cause so much problems? why does this religion produce such haters of all kinds? ... I went to the news page and posted the same opinion. You can select "Furious" in a drop-down menu.

    For her to say the gay people "serve no purpose" is so wrong on so many levels. She is supposedly educated, but she sees what she wants to see, hears what she wants to hear and believes what she wants to believe. However her beliefs can cause a lot of damage to a lot of people. Hopefully the good people of the community can overrule her.

    Ignorance breeds fear. Fear breeds hate. Hate breeds violence.

    Religion is the last refuge of human savagery and ignorance.

    Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace. Peace breeds love and acceptance.

    Shit's gonna happen. The kids will live with or without their dance. I apologize for my indifference, but I wish people would stop gettin' so butt hurt over trivial bull crap. I'm sure it means the whole wide world to the teens right now, because they're teens and it's the very reason why some are showin' their ass about them goin' and some are showin' their ass about potentially not getting to go.
    Honestly I'd put good money on the homosexuals in question being a bit too loud. If they didnt have to proclaim they were gay to the world and had just went to the dance and some guys and girls ended up dancin' together it very well would've gone unnoticed or simply snickered at by the staff. If they're grindin' their little fruity booties all over each other at a school dance then they don't need to be allowed to go to begin with. noone should.regardless.
    There's a lot that likely isn't known and since the title says that the students are movin' to ban the gays..where the hell was the focus on them? Shit's edited and spun the way it needs to be spun to push the eradication of christian folk which is the real issue here ain'it it?
    It's not anti gay, it's anti christian. Count your blessins and be happy the reporters have a strong bias toward the homos and are attacking the protesters. It wasn't always that way.
    Longer rant shorter- t ain't got shit to do with the kids not gettin' to go to the dance, it's all about the the nutty bible thumpers. The dance is an after thought.

    Can you imagine the crushing impact on a fragile GLBT teen, already racked by doubt and low self-esteem, of hearing an adult authority figure saying they have no purpose in life? And the ammunition it gives to hostile family members, and others in the young person's life? These comments from a person in this official school position are essentially child abuse.

    First, there is a significant amount of legal precedent respecting the importance of even mere high school events to students and their families. The courts have regularly ruled on inclusion and honoring diversity.

    Secondly, look at the picture you're using to represent yourself. With that in mind are you seriously going to use terms like "fruity booties"? I mean, seriously?

    Third, calling out a religious group using religion in order to justify bigotry is not discrimination it is identification.

    I can't get over your lack of compassion. I'd like to think you're merely flame baiting, but given your post history, I fear I'm wrong.

    If you were to edit your response to exclude unnecessary material before attempting to impress us with your insight, you would be left with a blank post. Your delusional and self-important statements of inexperienced opinion are laughable.

    I cannot believe how incredibly shallow you are. No, not shallow, stupid; so stupid that it goes well beyond the stupid we know into an entirely new dimension of stupid. Intellect and understanding bounce off your head as if it were coated with teflon.

    I don't like anybody who has as little respect for others as you do. You have all the appeal of sliding down a banister of razor blades and landing in a vat of salt water. You are meaningful to nobody, and abandoned by the vacuous bottom feeders that spawned you and then killed themselves out of shame for what they had done.

    You are the moral equivalent of a leech, and I feel corrupted just for knowing you exist.

    His post is not sarcasm; he's too stupid to comprehend the meaning of the word. And you give him too much credit if you think he's merely trolling.

    His personality fits the Texas stereotype perfectly; and it's personalities like his that makes me wish Texas would secede.

    Indifference? That's not indifference.


    I feel indifferent toward the outcome of the alleged protest. I don't care if they go or not. I'm much less indifferent toward the motive for the spotlight on a handful of opinions most people happen to conveniently despise.
    The headline and little else briefly vie for sympathy before presenting an incoherent slide show of random people sharing unpopular opinions. Everyone to arms! -_-'
    Some opinions are presented without the question from the reporter included. . I love "local christian" fella. Nabbed 'em some nameless thumper who does nothing more than answer whatever was asked. Just toss in the best few seconds and you're golden. A reminder for those that- if any had a doubt.." Hey,those christians really are just dumb and crazy, aren't they?"
    My opinion however unpopular and undesired is that it's a transparent attempt to exploit another semi sad story to perpetuate the image of the believer as less than human.
    I mean... the real victims here are the teenagers who may be deprived of their only chance to all be together, in one room, at a school function where the opportunity for inappropriate grinding is still on the horizon..however distan and out of reach.
