Any teacher who publicly states that some of her students have no purpose in life needs to be removed from teaching.

She certainly can't be trusted.

Wayne, I guess that if I don't like the way you spell or your abuse of the English language I shouldn't read your posts? I'm just standing up for my beliefs over here.

I agree. Suppose a teacher said the same thing about black students, Jewish students, or other minority group ? Imagine teh protests ?
Why aren't Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton leading riots there ?!
Jesse Jackson and Sharpton have nothing to do with this CONSERVATIVE voting, FOX watching district.

I would guess that she represents the majority in her school district for if not, there would be real out cry and perhaps "Gays Have No Purpose" is getting kids to take their own lives and that is their objective . Just a guess.

At min it certainly lends itself to opening doors for bullies to target those "who have no purpose" according to Diana Medley.

Some of you sound just like a freaking lynch mob-------listen carefully-------this woman NEVER said anything negative about ANY of the kids she currently teaches.

She said that she feels that gays have no purpose because she felt that a man and a woman get married to have children. Gay couples cannot have children together so she didn't see the purpose. That's what she was telling the rest of us. She's entitled to her opinion even if the rest of us don't agree.

She didn't discuss, Jews, Blacks, or any other sect so quit speculating about her thoughts on them.

The same could be said in reverse...the gay people that live there are apart of the community...and Diane Medley and the rest of the bigots could move...yes?

Do you think she has the right to interfere in a school district she doesn't work for or live in?
Interfere? She was simply stating her opinion and beliefs. I don't agree with some of her comments but she still has the right to an opinion regardless of how obscene others may think it is.

So you wouldn't object to a person who is a member of the KKK or WBC teaching children ?

I don't understand why the residents are now getting upset when the majority of the feelings of this county support Dana. Don't be hypocrites now that your backwards ideas are exposed!

Yep! As a matter of fact, I was trying to explain this situation to my 8 yr old son and he wasn't grasping it. He, at 8, asked why she felt "entitled" to her own way! Its so hard to tell you kid to respect their elders and TRUST their educators when some if them so publicly show hatred! He asked if his teacher felt the same way. Its going to be heartbreaking to watch the impact this single situation has on innocent kids.
On the bright side Mississippi finally abolished slavery today!.

You people know nothing about her, a 30 second clip edited by the media? Get real, be concerned about your OWN life.
Actually, Stanley, I know LOTS about her! Like how she had premarital sex, how she is divorced and remarried, has a deaf daughter whom she fought the school systems over to provide her with interpreters etc, how she is married to a man who is a convicted felon.... killed a man while driving drunk! How she SAYS she is a Christian, and doesn't want LGBT values shoved off on her, yet wants to shove HER Christian beliefs down THEIR throat, and deems LGBTQ without purpose in life! She thinks she is God...... I know LOTS about her!!! And most of it I won't print here... just trust me, she isn't as "Christian" as she would lead you to believe!!
