that comes from a person with a big brain, but no common sense what so ever. I dont know what youve been reading but where I live, you are gone once you go gay. I wont be at your devil church.

Dear "Student" May I point out, that teenagers who exhibit this type of homophobia are usually doing so to hide homosexual feelings. My guess is you probably have a crush on one of the boy's, and just can't admit it..

it should read: "you're ignorant, you're hateful, etc" (a contraction which comes from "you are"). "Your" is a possessive word and refers to objects that belong to someone. For example, "May I borrow your phone?" as opposed to, "You're very angry today!"

You poor child... I advise you to give up! Even if your right, you don't seem possess the ability to articulate your opinion in any coherent fashion. The Bible says that sin, is sin. That no one sin is any worse than any other sin. The fact is, we are all sinners, and have need of salvation; Yourself included..

If you and your date choose not to go to the prom , then that is your choice. You are free to make it! Just as Chase can now choose who he takes to the prom because he is free to make it.

It is called equal rights under the law and those laws are supposed to be based, not on the bible, but the Constitution of this country! Seperation of church and state. One of the reasons our forefather's choose to make this seperation is because they felt that the church in the old country had too much control over the people.

Don't people take history in high school?

You wouldn't want people to tell you that you couldn't take your girlfriend to the prom, now would you?

It is the all the same thing, it is about being able to make the choices that make you happy in your life. The choices that YOU feel are best for you. "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness"

You do not have the right, according to the Constitution of this country or in fact, the bible to choose what is right for another. You can only make decisions for yourself.

So as I said, if you choose not to go to the prom, it has nothing to do with Chase and Jordan, but with you. It is your choice...the only effect it will have on them is there will be more food available since you won't be eating yours.

Good for these guys and the school system. I'm glad to see that everything worked out for them. I hope that they have a great evening. As for "student" you come across like you are in grade school - and failing.

Who cares! would people be happier if he took some vapid tramp? Why is that. If people minded their own business and tended to their own houses the world would be a better place.

And for your equal rights buffs. Gay people have the same right as straight people. a straight peson couldn't take a same sex friend to the prom until this rule was changed.

The constitution doesn't provide special rights for people of different sexual persuasions. This is why the fools are trying to pass laws to make same sex marriages illegal or defining marriage as between man and woman. Unless that happens same sex marriage isn't techinically illegal. Read the constitution before you make stupid satements.

I think the Principal should have held firm on the policy.
It just shows that our schools are becoming nothing more than a breeding ground for far left liberals.
This is ok but they ban Mark Twain, edit Lincoln and completely mis-represent Jefferson's works.
Pitiful.

It is totally wrong-have you morons not read the Bible??? Thanks God I am married to a beautiful girl with beautiful kids that aren't gay!!! Nice parenting-NOT!!!


First of all, you are a complete idiot! If the Bible is so true, then everyone, with the exception of Adam and Eve, were created out of incest! God forbid any of your children would ever be LGBT, because you are a bigot and a hateful person, who would probably disown your own kids! I would rather my children know that they can be who they want to be, regardless of sexual preference, rather than teaching them that God only loves you if you're "straight"

Boy some people and their ways got it bad on both sides. If there is no god and this all came about by chance (the big bang!) Evolution only allows for procreation, survival of the fittest. The only way for most species is to have some type of sex between male and female. So a world without men and the seed that they plant, how long would the human race last? Now on the other hand, if god created all of this your still on the wrong side. Anyone who tries to say that homosexuality is not banned by the bible needs to be added to the sex offender registry. Let's say I ran a stop sign and got caught. Why would I try and argue with the officer that the sign doesn't really mean to stop. I would have to admit that I ran it for whatever reason. My point is this, I don't hate gays but to say that it is natural... nah

It matters not who puts their stamp of approval on this perverted lifestyle. It's sick,unnatural,and carries a very high price for those who get caught up in it. The wages of sin is still death.
