Oh yeah and his investment portfolio took a big hit when the second great depression started. Not enough money to retire on now. That will make you change your stance even if it is a wide one like Larry Craig has.

Let's see...no job...no one else will hire him...apparently the principal's principles have suddenly ben shelved for a paycheck. What a loser. He's gone, let him stay gone. He burned his own bridges.

I say let him stay.
His religion teaches intolerance, but the US believes in tolerance. The US believes in tolerance so much that we will even tolerate those who don't.

Just don't let the irony be lost on this man of hate. In fact make him the faculty advisor of the club he doesn't tolerate and maybe they can teach him to be more tolerate.

Tolerance is the virtue of a people that no longer believe in anything.

That's an interesting thought.
Care to explain it in more detail.
Seriously. No jokes, put downs, or attacks intended.

blind denial of a creator is the first sign of insanity.

As a christian I can say I know atheist and agnostics that are quite sane.

BTW the state shouldn't be in the business of deciding who does what with their naughty bits.

Well during the time I stayed in Irmo all of the boys act, walk, and talk gay already. It is just a gay atmosphere there were nothing goes on and if it does The State paper will blast it like it is a big issue. Those kids need to see other parts of South Carolina and realize that they all are gay.
