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.
And you KNOW FOR SURE that none of her students is a closet LGBTQ? Really????? And if she thinks that man and woman only get married to have children, is she planning on more children, since she Married her current husband AFTER she had her kids and divorced their daddy? Is she abstaining from sex with current husband, since it's likely at her age, she is beyond childbearing? Yeah, didn't think so! STFU!!

@ Whatever-------Your last post is totally irrational. It makes zero difference that the woman does or doesn't plan on children in the future. She is heterosexual and has the ability to have children naturally.

Again, I don't agree with what she said, but I understand what she meant by it.

Its pretty sad the extent some people will go. While I do no agree with the statements that were made, those statements are absolutely no excuse to justify making physical threats to a school and the children there. It seems that those that have made such threats have drawn enough attention that the state police are now posting an officer at the school. Many people have stated that a school should be a safe place for the children to be, and that the teacher involved, by making comments made school a hostile enviroment, how are threats of physical violence better?

I couldn't agree with you more. I hope that people don't assume everyone in Indiana shares here beliefs. In fact, I don't know anyone personally who thinks as backward as she does.

Death threats, really? Who has the problem here?

Looks like the true colors of the Gay crowd are shinning through, what a tolerant group, disagree and they aim to kill.

I hope you are all proud of yourselves. This community is a victim of the hatred of Liberals who threaten Schools.

You are a joke. You judge an entire group of people based on the actions of a few while at the same time wanting everyone not to judge the entire heterosexual community based the views of Ms. Medley.

BTW when Match.com came out in support of gay rights, guess who the majority of death threats came from? Heterosexual Christians! Don't believe me? Look it up!

I am a gay man. I have not called for her dismissal or issued death threats against this vile woman. You don't speak for me anymore than those who made threats did.

But then, you don't like FACTS messing with your bigotry.

Making desperate terrorist threats to force people to think like you do indicates sociopathic personality disorder (clinical insanity)

Profile of the Sociopath
++++++++++
Glibness and Superficial Charm
.
Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.
.
Grandiose Sense of Self
Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."

Pathological Lying
Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.
.
Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.
.
Shallow Emotions
When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

Incapacity for Love

Need for Stimulation
Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

Callousness/Lack of Empathy
Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others' feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

Not concerned about wrecking others' lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.

Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.

I think the joke is the Gay crowd, the FACT is the Liberal Gay supporters are making death threats to a SCHOOL. How sick is that?

It's not just a FEW people either junior, it's thousands. Sending Gay porn to area Churches, death threats to Schools, threatening to burn people's homes down.

And you want to cast the word Bigot and Vile at me? Look in the mirror if you want to see the real Bigot.

Tolerance of what??? Where is that tolerance and inclusion? In death threats? Beyond pathetic.

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!!
I work with a few people like this, it used to enrage me but now I just ignore it.
The winner is this rabid and politically active, anti-choice, bible thumper whose son has paid for 2 abortions and her unmarried daughter went to visit some relatives in another state and had a "miscarriage".

These people are something else and just so many of them , some states more than others.

I agree as far as no one should make threats or cross that line. Being an active political force is the way to go but don't insult us when you claim we are the hypocrite bigots because that would be
you "Christian" conservatives and your self serving ,con artist leaders.

It is very sick and those that do should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, but they do not speak for all of us, far from it in fact. Yes, we have folks who cross lines that shouldn't even be approached on our side of the debate, you got them too, Ms Medley being a prime example of that. There is some seriously righteous anger on our side, we've had to swallow her kind of irrational hate with a freaking smile on our face for far too long. When you tap into that kind of anger you can expect some of it to be expressed inappropriately. It shouldn't happen to those who oppose us as it shouldn't be happening to us as the result of the inappropriate acting out coming from your side of the debate.

Thousands out of millions, while still far too many, is still an unrepresentative few. The overwhelming majority of us don't want to punish this woman, or the school, which actually did the RIGHT thing by making her want her own little prom for the bigots, we just want to send the message that she really shouldn't be foisted on vulnerable children if that is what she "thinks" and doesn't want to keep that kind of idiocy to herself.

Reality, both sides have people who behave in ways that are counter-productive at best and downright dangerous at worse. I have gotten some pretty fascinating threats posted to me here on Topix, everything from threats of God's wrath to what somebody thought they would like to do to me with a chainsaw. It is wrong no matter who does it and both sides need to do a better job at reigning in its own worst impulses, but we often don't, because we can understand where it comes from.

Own up to your people, they have made the threats, showed their true colors. You have been exposed in a very negative light, you want respect, you earn it. Epic fail for the Gay crowd.
