    To continue the information on the situation in Mississippi, which FMF seems to have now lost interest in..

    In the spirit, "One is not what one says he is, but what one demonstrates himself to be"
    So, now if the ACLU sues the school district, the school district loses..who pays the award? The tax payers get a huge surprise when their property taxes are increase by 1000.00 a month?

    If they don't like the consequences that a discriminatory policy enacted by the school board might get them, they should pressure the members to change it.

    Maybe the school board should have thought about the tax payers' interests when they decided to discriminate against some of their students.

    How was their policy discriminatory?
    They didn't want to have a dance with openly gay couples attending so they didn't have a dance.
    Where's the discrimination?

    Boo-hoo this is a big deal over nothing.

    The greatness of America is rooted in its history of making big deals of these "nothings" and moving forward and upward and making itself better, fairer, more tolerant - and making itself into an inspiration around the world, Mississippi school board backwardness notwithstanding.

    Again, they didn't want to have a dance with openly gay couples so they just didn't have a dance.

    So what? What did they do wrong?

    They did nothing wrong, in their eyes they felt they were protecting the educational system. I guess they are more in touch with their own constituents, than the rest of the world.
    But in the long run, I think the girl got what she wanted,, her few minutes in the spot light, a scholarship for 30K on the Ellen show, and a chance to stand up for her cause,,
    In the gay world, is it acceptable for a 16 year old to have sex?? With what?
    Where is the line drawn? There is no line?

    If the question was:

    "Again, they didn't want to have a dance with interracial couples so they just didn't have a dance."

    You wouldn't have to ask. But since you're bigoted against homosexuals the concept escapes you.

    Gays have hijacked the American Civil Rights movement through the erroneous assumption that race is synonymous with sexual preferences. Does a man decide one day that he is African American, then the next that he is White Anglo Saxon? Does he after having been born Caucasian, decide later in life that he would rather be a Mongoloid?

    No it's very different. The point you are missing is that there are minors involved.

    It remains none of the government's business what your sexual preference is. Thus the government has no legitimate reason to discriminate against you for said sexual preference.

    What difference does that make? It's OK to discriminate against gays as long as they are under a certain age?
