sin is sin. homosexuality, adultery, fornication between male and female outside of marriage. IF a teacher was caught cheating on his wife I am sure he would be fired as well. this is not a public school so Obama cannot force his immoral policies on the church. I am sure the teacher can find a job in the public sector. They are celebrating immorality in our world today. The dregs of society are the moral people who beleive in the sanctity of marraige, who believe abortion is murder, who believe women do not have rights to thier own body over hte life of a baby inside who's rights are violated, who believe homosexuality is a sin just like any other sin.

The intolerance of tolerance. The liberas are waving the flag of Tolerance. Yet if you disagree with them you are labled Intolerant. Which calls into question their tolerance. They are intolerant of my intolerance and thererfore I am intolerant?

This is the opitome of hypocricy.

Hats off to Chris Broussard for standing on his convictions! But he is intolerant! Because those who promote Tolerance are not tolerant of his views of tolerance.

Crazy!

They may very well be. They have no problem screwing our kids with excessive debt and by forcing them to be slaves to the govt. These slave masters have to go before it's too late.

Most of what you say is spot on which is why people should have a right to practice their beliefs without harassment. Ironically, the very people who argue for tolerance are the most intolerant.

For those who are truly tolerant, they must accept those who oppose homosexuality on the basis of their convictions. For some people, homosexuality is viewed as the same kind of pervsion as beastiality. Some may think that is ridiculous but they are intolerant to the feelings and beliefs of others. Respect is a two way street.

Respect towards those who believe in choice or anti choice should be respected for their beliefs. It's a two way street. A free people will decide what is or isn't appropriate which is why both sides should be free to express their views on this issue with complete tolerance.

People should have the right to attend the schools they want. If one family wants religion included and another doesn't, then it should be their choice. Eliminate federal funding completely, reduce property taxes so parents can be responsible for paying the cost to educate their kids. Go to public or private and pay your way to both. That way there is equality for everyone.

It's a shame the way the liberal media bullies and shames people who have different beliefs. Such hypocrisy.

Nobody is opposing "views", they are opposing "actions". It is the same opposition you would face if church members suddenly started stoning adulterers.

Sure the views are being opposed.

You aren't claiming that the opposition was to her firing, are you? People get fired every day. It's the reason she was fired that is the issue, isn't it?

Most of those aren't illegal firings.

The illegal action that resulted from the church's view is the issue, not the view itself.

Yes, it was unjust and illegal discrimination, a person being fired solely for being gay. And it goes against everything Jesus Christ stood for, it is an insult to the students and the reason education exists. One hopes the teacher sues the daylights out of the bigots who made this decision.

The slave masters are right wing nutjobs like you who want to give every advantage to the wealthy and screw working people at every turn.
If you care about our kids, stop gutting public education and our environment. The debt is about 50 miles down on the list of what's important to our kids' future, the ONLY reason the right pushes this BS "issue" is to promote austerity, which will cause MASSIVE harm to the children you hypocritically pretend to care about.

That is absolutely true.

Lesbianism, homosexuality and pedophilia are wrong and a sign of the end of days. Read the Word of God and save yourself from this sinful and depraved generation.

IF those beliefs don't cause harm to others.
"Ironically, the very people who argue for tolerance are the most intolerant."
A preposterous right wing lie. "You're not tolerant unless you tolerate my intolerance" nice try.
"For those who are truly tolerant, they must accept those who oppose homosexuality on the basis of their convictions."
IF they do not try to discriminate or harm gay people. If you "oppose homosexuality" (a stupid thing to do, like opposing Tuesday or the sun setting in the west or left-handedness) that's your choice.
When you harm others--for instance, getting a qualified teacher fired solely because she happens to be gay...NOBODY "must" or SHOULD accept this any more than we "accept" Jim Crow.
"For some people, homosexuality is viewed as the same kind of pervsion as beastiality."
And NOBODY should "accept" this. It is a PROVEN lie, and a hateful slur that causes grave damage to many people for no good reason. If you hold this ignorant trash in your mind, keep it to yourself, or expect decent human beings to strongly object.
"Some may think that is ridiculous but they are intolerant to the feelings and beliefs of others."
So, you worry about the "feelings" of bigots, but not the young gay people being driven to suicide by this pack of Nazi trash?
"Respect is a two way street."
And has to be EARNED, not just given blindly. NO, there is no obligation to "respect" hate and lies.
"Respect towards those who believe in choice or anti choice should be respected for their beliefs."
Until their "belief" is expressed in laws denying women their God-given constitutional rights of reproductive freedom.
"A free people will decide what is or isn't appropriate which is why both sides should be free to express their views on this issue with complete tolerance."
Bull. NOBODY should be allowed to spread hateful lies that destroy lives. If they want to THINK it, that's one thing, expressing it is NOT the same.
Now, that said, NOBODY is being arrested for expressing hate and bigotry. It is ONLY when legal discrimination happens that the problem exists, as well it should.
"People should have the right to attend the schools they want."
And NOBODY is questioning this.
"If one family wants religion included and another doesn't, then it should be their choice."
It is.
"Eliminate federal funding completely, reduce property taxes so parents can be responsible for paying the cost to educate their kids."
THAT is a total load of CRAP. You're saying the right of education is ONLY for those kids whose parents have money, it is NOT. It if for EVERY child.
We provide, as we should, a free public education for any child, those who choose other options will AND SHOULD be expected to pay for them.
And that has NOTHING to do with the subject at hand, which is that you STILL cannot fire a teacher solely for being gay.
"Go to public or private and pay your way to both."
And if you can't? This is idiocy, and will be massively destructive to our society.
"That way there is equality for everyone."
That's nowhere CLOSE to true. Equality is when OPPORTUNITY is provided equally for all, under your perverse plan the wealthy will get a great education, and the poor will get nothing. We already have VASTLY too much of an education gap in this nation because of greed. It's morally repugnant, and you want to make it worse? Horrible idea.
"It's a shame the way the liberal media"
There is no such thing. A total myth.
"bullies and shames people who have different beliefs."
Oh, barf!!! You're whining about bullying bullies? And people CHOOSE shame, as they SHOULD be ashamed of hate and bigotry. The media ONLY reports the facts.
"Such hypocrisy."
You've shown NONE except your own and that of the extremist right.
Too wordy.
