Default Principal: Homo is a Nono

When a high school senior told her principal that students were taunting her for being a lesbian, he told her homosexuality is wrong, outed her to her parents and ordered her to stay away from children.

He suspended some of her friends who expressed their outrage by wearing gay pride T-shirts and buttons at Ponce de Leon High School, according to court records. And he asked dozens of students whether they were gay or associated with gay students.

This happened in the "Bible Belt"? Isn't that the place where they forbid teaching of the Big Bang Theory because "that's not the truth according to the bible"? Actually, isn't teaching any science that goes against the bible illegal there?

No idea. All I heard that they really believe that the Creation story is the truth, and refuse to believe in scientific theories like the Big Bang or the Theory of Evolution.

I don't think they don't believe in some scientific facts like gravity or heat though.

It's sad to see stuff like this is still happening. I'm glad that I don't live in a "bible-belt" area. If I had to deal with this stuff daily I'd go insane.

I live in Alabama too, and this article has reminded me of why my parents and brother are the only ones that know I'm gay. People really don't know how hard it is; thankfully the poor girl had support from friends. It says a lot about her friends' character to wear gay pride shirts for her; the world needs more people like that. This also reminds me of why I don't believe in God; the whole "You're gay, so regardless of what you do you're a sinner and you're going to hell" mentality just doesn't sit well with me.

We actually got into a debate over gay marriage in my Bible as Literature class; some people actually think that it's a choice to be homosexual/bisexual. Just so you guys know, it's not. Well, it wasn't for me. XD

And just so people know, "gay" and "homosexual" are okay to use, but "homo" can be offensive.

Wow, I'm what a heartless, homophobic principal. He clearly does not even attempt to see things from a homosexual point of view.

Imagine a world where homosexuality is the dominant sexual orientation. Shows with homosexual romances, same-gender couples on the street, etc. And you are a heterosexual. I mean, wouldn't that be uncomfortable? Wouldn't you feel bad when people teased you for being a heterosexual or if your parents coerced you into marrying someone of your own gender?

But I suppose things like that happen all the time. :\ What a horrible principal.

I haven't heard anything like that too. I don't think there's anything written in the bible that says that you'll go to hell if you're gay. The most common argument I've heard against homosexuality is St. Thomas Aquinas' doctrine on "The Natural Law". AFAIK, conservatives believe that doctrine to the letter, which basically says that anything that goes against it's natural purpose is a sin (humans were designed to be heterosexual, and going against it is a sin according to the doctrine).

But based on the recent revisions in the Catholic teachings, and based on what I've been taught growing up, homosexuality isn't necessarily a sin, but a disorder of some sort (disorder = not in order). It's like using a book for a paperweight. That is not the book's purpose, but it's not necessarily wrong to use it that way neither.

And I think I've read that the church is against oppression of homosexuals as well, but there are so many branches of our religion that I forgot which ones are against it and which ones support it.....

And I believe in God and the Church, just not on the stupid people he left to run it.
