Group of students and parents wants to ban gays from Indiana high school prom

Feb 11, 2013 | Posted by: DNF | Full story: news.yahoo.com

It’s not clear exactly how many gays and lesbians are currently roaming the halls of Sullivan High School in rural Sullivan, Indiana. Nevertheless, a group of students and parents doesn’t want a single one of them at the high school prom this year.

On Sunday, the students and parents met along with a smattering of other community members at the Sullivan First Christian Church, reports WTWO, the NBC affiliate in Terre Haute. They want to raise money for a separate, “traditional” prom that only allows heterosexuals.

Sullivan High School itself presumably would not be involved with a prom that bans certain students from attending. The participating students believe there is a large contingent among the 600 or so students at Sullivan High School who agree with them. They say those students are fearful of speaking out as they now have.

“If we can get a good prom then we can convince more people to come and follow what they believe,” letter jacket-wearing student Kynon Johnson told WTWO. “We want to make the public see that we love the homosexuals, but we don’t think it’s right nor should it be accepted,” Bonnie McCammon, another student, added.

Diana Medley, a local special education teacher, told the station that many locals are offended by homosexuality. Medley, who believes everyone is born straight, disapproves of homosexuality. “We don’t agree with it and it’s offensive to us,” the straights-only prom advocate said. Medley was asked if she thinks gay people “have a purpose in life.” “No I honestly don’t. Sorry, but I don’t. I don’t understand it,” the special education teacher answered. “A gay person isn’t going to come up and make some change unless it’s to realize that it was a choice and they’re choosing God.”

Several local pastors also endorse the movement for a separate prom.

Hi Jade:)
As if you would know. Some of us didn't even know ourselves until later in life, after school. That's the stupidity of this "traditional prom" business - there are always gays in schools - and attending proms - whether or not others (or themselves) realize it.

And you know that ... how? Because you grabbed each boy's privates as he walked up to the entrance, and if he didn't become erect, you certified him as "straight"? Maybe you were just too homely to excite anyone.

Which brings up another point ... how are all these religious zealots in Sullivan, Indiana, going to prove that everyone who buys a ticket to their "special prom" is straight? Good grief. Maybe Diana Medley needs to be a student in her own class.

Please don't include me in this group of stains. Frankly when Christians like these claim I can't be Christian because I'm also gay I take it for what it's worth. Hot Air.

These Christians have perverted the message of Our Savior into one of judgement and self righteousness rather than one of humility, compassion and forgiveness.

And as for Ms Medley thinking I serve no purpose, I disagree. I serve a greater purpose, the Good News and the message of God's forgiveness.

Listen to their own words. "We love you but we think you're wrong and no one should accept you" I think Jesus Himself would be tempted to slap the smugness out of them.

Something about this story has been bugging me. Is this the same town that last year or the year before, where these "Christian" Students sent bogus invitations to the classmates they didn't want attending "their Prom"?

I was shocked at my 10 year reunion that some people in my class didn't know I was gay when I went to my Senior Prom. My date sure knew and she was very happy about it. Her boyfriend couldn't dance!

My bad that was in Mississippi. But then again Indiana is known as one of the State that always had large numbers joining the KKK.

All they are doing is getting their gay kids and teachers into these places so that they can get close to your kids. They want your kids at a very early age to think that its fun and normal to be gay.That way they will be easy targets for their sexual advances

I remember in the early 80's a gay male student went to court to force the schoo to allow him to bring his gay male date tothe prom, and he lost. And the general readtion was that the court was crazy to even hear such a ridiculous case. And I don't rememeber a large segment of teh gay population rallying around, claiming it was his right to bring whomever he wanted to teh prom.

Drug den's and pleasure domes for a generation to come if someone doesn't restore some order here in the near future. A generation may be lost soon. That is their goal.
