Oh yeah, that's a huge problem...Christians being persecuted in school for their religious beliefs.

Big epidemic!!!


Right about now Gary will trot out his video of some elderly homophobe going to a rally in the Castro district the night Prop h8 was passed, harassing the many outraged people at the rally, and then tripping and falling down.




Good idea let me find that.



BTW a growing cause of bullying is ex gays being bullied by homosexuals who are mad when anyone breaks the code of silence and ruins the whole "immutable trait" argument.

That statement requires back up, and from a good source.

Michigan has made national news this week for the passage of an anti-bullying law that includes a passage allowing Christian bullies to continue to raise hell for gay student, just so long as they really, really mean it (or have a permission slip from God).

The portion of the law that reads, “This section does not prohibit a statement of a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction” effectively neuters the entire bill to the point of making zero enforcement possible. All in the name of God.

The slimy little wiggle again. Go away gary. You're so predictable and boring I can't bear it any longer. It's like nails down a chalkboard. I hope you get bullied every time you show your face in public. Even then, it wouldn't even out what vile and evil vomit you have spread over the internet. You're disgusting.

I guess it boils down to what one would consider "hateful" or "bullying."



Saying something like, "No, thank you, my religious beliefs preclude me from participating in gay pride week," is not the same thing as following a gay kid down the hall and growling, "God hates you, queer, go to Hell!"



Although some would try to argue they are essentially one and the same.



This can be a sticky (no pun intended ), situation. Because many schools are increasingly promoting gay pride or gay history awareness events. And it is tantamount to putting a stamp of approval on homosexuality -- and using taxpayer's dollars to do it.



Why should students and staff who don't agree be forced to endorse and/or participate in these events.



And, just as you should not use taxpayer's dollars to promote religion, why should it be used to essentially slam religion. The gay rights movement loves to re-define "hate" as saying anything even remotely negative about homosexuality.



So, by default, many religious traditions (and not just Christianity -- I'm not Christian) are cast as "hateful," because they won't celebrate homosexuality or promote gay marriage.



My thought is, schools need to remain as neutral as possible on this subject.



And as poorly as some of his arguments might be constructed, Gary has a point. Gay rights has increasingly gone beyond just allowing gays basic freedoms and basic protection under the law from violence, toward forcing approval of homosexuality. Or, at least trying to force anybody with a dissenting opinion to shut up.



Universal love and respect do not require universal approval. And disagreement is not "hatred."

Well said.



If you say you don't believe in God that doesn't mean you hate Christians, Jews, Muslims or any other person of faith.



Conversely I don't have to agree with Islam to know that a Muslim kid should not be bullied for being Muslim.



My point about bullying is that all victims of bullying should be treated equally.



We shouldn't use bullying to parlay support for homosexuals, the obese, the bespectacled, kids with acne or anything else.
