The Central planning committee is the federal government, telling us what is good for us, taking away thing that they believe are bad for us, telling us how to live, what we can do with our property, even to the point that is some cases we can't provide for ourselves with out thier "help."

But enough about DOMA, marijuana, and cigarettes.

One does not need to say it to know that this government is run on corruption. I've never seen a government official with integrity.

Yup Chicago style politics.

There are a few good politicians, but few and far between.

America has a wonderful constitution, but it is a backward country when it comes to freedom. people may have the right to speak their minds. This right is found in many countries around this world. Freedom of speech is not a soul American right. But only in America, bigots scream their hate and call it freedom of speech. Sir it is plain and simple for me to say you are a bigot.

It's too bad this girl has to be a trouble starter. She is in a Roman Catholic school, she is well aware of the standards and the view that the RCC takes on homosexuality. To all you gay people who find this offensive and have decided to spew disgusting vile comments about my religion: You are no better than the bigots you worry about. Not everyone agrees with your views and there are plenty of public schools that would condone her behavior and encourage her to 'taste the rainbow'.

It is not the faith you follow so blindly, but the hate this faith has made. History has shown us that the catholic faith kills to protect it little mind set.

History has shown us that MANY different movements have killed to protect their own ideology- and tell me when in recent history Catholics have killed for their faith. American have killed for our ideas, so have the Russians, Germans, Spanish, Italians, Muslims, etc... To single out Catholicism is pure bigotry, same thing goes for singling us out for sex abuse. Does the media publish the stories were pedo rings are busted that contain hundreds of teachers, policemen, and other professionals? No. You should ask yourself why. How about all these teachers getting busted for sex with minors. How come you are not calling for an overhaul of the school system? Or telling parents to leave their kids home because the schools are unsafe.

I find it an extremely curios human condition to "hate" out of fear of people being different. Now that it is your turn to love or hate people who are different from you, what are you going to choose to do?

What's too bad here is that you are as arrogant as other religious bigots. You're so narrow minded that you don't take anything but your own beliefs into consideration.

This isn't even about homosexuality. Its a matter of Church hypocrisy. This school admitted an out-of-the-closet lesbian, but is now upset about her choice of dates. If the school objected to her homosexuality they should've refused her admission, or expelled her when they learned of it. They didn't. Hypocrites.

You assume this young lady is attending this school by choice. Arrogance. She is a minor and its entirely possible her parents sent her to this school against her own wishes. Assuming she wants to be there or is there by choice is wrong. She may have even gone to the extent of creating this issue so that she could get OUT of the school.

This is not about church hypocricy, be real. Where is the church being hypocritical? Homosexuality is not condoned by the church, that's it, end of story. Why should they deny her admission? SHOULD THEY judge her? Or should they let her homosexuality be between her and God? If her parents sent her to that school against her own wishes, then so be it. She is a MINOR and they can send her anywhere they want, after all they are responsible for her actions until she is legally an adult. I think the high school handled this very well. I think that St Anthony's has a responsibility to maintain standards and guide their students to reaching those standards when it becomes difficult. It's called "growing up". She can always stay home from the prom instead of making a news story out a non-story.

BTW- I could care less if you consider me arrogant, but GTFOOH if you want to call me a bigot- YOU are the BIGOT. You have decided that everyone who loves Christ is a bigot and closed minded. I have a little lesson for you that comes directly from the Bible and I live by: Judge not, lest ye be judged.....

Americans "scream" many things, usually the most provocative makes the news- so guess what you get to hear? We also run to aide the rest of the world when they are hit with disaster. Tell me, when was the last time New Zealand put it's money or people or resources where it's mouth is??? I'll wait hunter.....
