There are 3 comments on the gawker.com story from Nov 29, 2012, titled Michigan Middle School Teacher Suspended for Letting Student Play Song Supporting Same-Sex Marriage. In it, gawker.com reports that:

Macklemore & Lewis's smash underground ode to "Same Love" may have convinced voters in Washington to vote in favor of legalizing marriage equality, but in Michigan, the same song got a Detroit-area middle school teacher suspended for three days.

Editor's note: the teacher allowed an eighth-grade student to play the song in class after determining it didn't contain profanity or violence.

It's already been established that students may offer prayers in school as long as the student initiates it and is not programmed by the faculty. I don't see why a song would be any different.

“ WOOF ! ”

If the teacher told the students that gay and lesbian people can marry one another in Washington D.C., and many states in the U.S. also, would she be suspended for that also by them, because they deem that "controverisal" ???

It would have been helpful if the article mentioned whether or not her union helped her. They should have at least paid her for those missed days.
