If the ACLU sues, it won't be for money - it will only be to overturn the decision. And, I should add, the justification for the decision is pretty pathetic.

The school board is violating federal law (The Equal Access Act). I'd say 20 years n the federal slammer for each one may get them to change their minds in awhile.

It seems that CASD has seen the light as far as fighting a battle it was sure to lose. The district announced Wed. that the GSA club can meet with club status until the Board meeting next Wed. at CAMS North(Faust.)It will be interesting to see who changes their vote (if the approval passes.) Jan Sulcove, the Board's lawyer, had advised them to approve the club before their last vote, so the stupidity rests with the 5 yahoos.

Also there's alot of Ya hoos in Franklin county because we are all related. Ever hear of incest? All the 2nd generation and on know what I am talking about.

People like me (DTM) are from here. My family goes way back. I am related to almost everyone here. I never left the area, too insecure. So I spend my time on topix as multiple posters.

So Really/DTM is agreeing with me, your mom and dad are also brother and sister. I guess that explains why you are a multiple poster, not quite there. Poor DTM/Really or whatever name you use or steal. You just don't have enough brain power to sort right from wrong. Poor lost, clueless soul.

What you are witnessing here is the final stages of DTMDS, where the brain is so diseased that it can't do anything but obsess on DTM.

Sad.

Hopefully a merciful end will come quickly to these poor, disease-ridden freaks.

Gay-Straight Alliance Club gets temporary okay at CASHS

Chambersburg Area Senior High School has a Gay-Straight Alliance club - for now.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania was notified Wednesday that the Chambersburg Area School District would grant the club all the same rights and responsibilities as other clubs immediately, and at least until the school board meets again.

The school board meets at 7 p.m. March 27 in the CAMS North auditorium.

"The district has been in contact with the ACLU and the topic will be addressed at the March 27 board meeting under 'old business,'" CASD Assistant Superintendent Eric Michael said.

The district faced an ACLU deadline to reverse the decision by the end of business on Wednesday.

"Depending on what the board does that will determine whether this continues or does not continue," said Vic Walczak, legal director of the ACLU Pa. "We can wait for the formal decision."

Just out of curiosity, is there a Heathan-Christian Alliance club at the school? Should one be allowed?

Thank God NAMBLA didn't request the rights to a club here. Some of these libs would think that is perfectly OK too.

As for this club, I can see the meetings now: mandatory Richard Simmons, Liza Minnelli, Will & Grace, and Glee showings. Practicing for a career on "Say yes to that dress". Maybe a little "Guess that showtune"?

Oh yes, how far we have come.

Actually, joking aside, I could care less if they have a club. It's not my thing, but it's not hurting anyone so long as the intent isn't to convince people they really are LGBT. Everyone can use a support group now and then. I wouldn't personally promote it or have attempted to bring it here, but now that it is, the board should just accept it and move on to more important things.

Why do so many discussions go back to NAMBLA? I find it's conservatives that have the sick preoccupation with that organization.

Why would anyone, ever, in any way think that this club is about convincing straight people that they're gay? Is that really what some people, that some people are concerned about? It just shows how utterly ignorant people are on this.

The reason these support groups exist is because LGBT teenagers are tormented in school; bullied sometimes to the point of suicide. Finally, there is national awareness of this problem and a real grassroots effort to stop bullying in general. And you're afraid straight kids might be convinced they're gay when they're not?

Unbelievably clueless.

Now, I know your comment was probably tongue-in-cheek, but it kind of goes back to how Senator Portman came out in gay marriage when he learned his son was gay. You don't even think about how this really affects actual human beings until it affects you. People are gay - it's time to get over it, and it's organization like this gay-straight alliance that will move society as a whole past it.

NAMBLA doesn't even exist. They're like the boogeyman.

I think you meant - "Actually, bigoted stereotypes aside..."
