Hate goes two ways. You are a bigot for thinking all have to agree with you. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Schools should have the ability so set rules with people always wanting to break the rules then suing for what they are realy after.

<quoted text> This is where you are wrong. Everyone is entitled to their opinion when it is shoved and your face. Just because you dont believe in changing the laws and believe it is just wrong, does NOT mean you hate anyone. It has turned into something very wrong when you are bashed because you dont believe as someone else does. This goes both ways. I dont care what you do but dont demand I change my mind and vote or bash be and call me a hater. It is my morals, my beliefs that it is wrong and will never change my vote or mind. I however would never treat anyone different or hate them because this is their choice. It is not my place to judge them but it is my place to vote the way I do. Jesus would have love them but told them of the sin they engaging in also. Your judgeing that people are bigots and bullying is in many cases unfounded. I do believe that the gays have done and are doing quite a bit of bullying as in Chick-Fillet and pouncing on churches that are preaching in love and homosexuality is wrong. It goes both ways. Everyone is entitled to their opinions without being bullied and hated for it.
I agree alot of your opinion. I am now just tired the "other" side pushing their opinion, lifestyle, and agenda down my throat without any respect for my beliefs. The thing is, without "my/Christian" side respecting the Constitution for the couple hundred of years the "other" side would never have seen the light of day. Be careful of the bridges you burn and the alliances you make. What you think you are blazing a new a better world may turn around to bite you in the hind end. It did me during the Clinton years and things weren't near as bad as they are now. God loves you no matter who you love, He might be calling you to be a better example than what you have been exposed to in your past. Let's all get past the bs and fix the economy first. Just my opinion.

Oh so I'm the bigot because I don't allow you to hate, discriminate and make judgmental statements based on your CHOSEN religious beliefs? Yea right..You can have an opinion, too bad it's an ignorant one.

LOL First of all you don't get to choose to respect the constitution, it's required that you do to live here an be an American. Second, it's about time somebody shoves something down your throat to get you stop being a consumerist self-righteous judgmental bigot and accepting of others. How long do WE have to be inconvenienced and accepting of YOUR life style? Be taxed for your children's education, allow your church to rake in the non taxable income and then turn a blind eye while it donates money to political causes (mostly gay discrimination causes)? AND What have YOU done to fix the economy? Lay off or not hire someone so it meant more profits for your company? Your a hypocrite!

If you set rules with no logical purpose, designed only to harm people, expect lawsuits.

Things often don't change for the better without pressure.

Gay people have always been here, and we are seeing the light of day NOW in spite of a great many Christians, not because of them.

Unless so-called christians stop supporting laws and rules that harm gay Americans, they can expect a fight at every turn.

When the start acting like real Christians, and the pressure won't be needed.

I cannot believe how many of you all do not believe in a God. How do you look around and believe in nothing? How do you look up at the sky, or the beauty of the mountains & oceans...& think there's nothing.

How can you say that nothing created this?

For your information, I have read the bible, through and through, and it makes me even more attached to my God.

I'm glad the school district decided not to spend taxpayer money defending bigotry.

And that's fine, the Bible was meant to be interpreted differently. No two people may believe the same way. I was talking to those who do not believe at all

How are schools going to police this? If two couples want to go to a dance how can the stop them? Sign up to go by yourself and then meet there, simple fix. I don't want to see same sex couples dance inappropriately either, keep it clean or be escorted out. No ones gonna be turned gay by seeing a same sex couple at a dance. These students even though they may not fit your cookie cutter life style have a right to be able to live without ppl treating them as freaks. There are ppl born gay, ppl who are damaged emotionally after childhood trauma, molested, birth defects, children who suffer from absent mother/father syndrome. Theres many reasons if you do some research. Most of these young people are just wanting to live their live without being judged and dammed to hell. If a sin is a sin to God then who are we to say who is sinning. If schools cant stop students from holding hands how can you stop them from dancing with whoever?

It isn't "us people" who are making a huge deal out of it, it is the student. Just like you said, sign up alone and meet up there. That's fine. No ones stopping that from happening. But the student is the one being so drama-filled over it b

Wrong..it is 'you people' that are making a huge deal, otherwise the kid could go to prom and this wouldn't be news...No one should have to 'sign up alone' so they can take a date to prom, just to appease a bigot!
Take a stand

Take a stand and boycott the prom. Stand for biblical moral principles. Churches in the area should host a prom for Christian couples so they do not have to support such immoral behavior. Hard to pay for a prom if no one buys tickets.

First, if you look around these threads, you may see why, since Christianity is often presented as a forced worship of an abusive parent, who hates his creations for how HE choose to make them.

Not a winsome and attractive thing.

Also, why do you think that people who don't believe as you do "look around and believe in nothing"?

Most people believe in most of the same things, religious or non-religious alike.

It's easy, they deny entrance to any same sex couple who arrives together. They remove any same sex couple who either dances together or has their picture taken together.

In other words, as soon as a gay couple starts acting like everyone else, out they go.
