From the article:

" ... 2013 Sullivan Traditional Prom. The organizers of this hate group would like us to know that 'this is not a hate group'... "

Just SAYING that you are not doesn't make it so.

A friend of mine recommended our area to me for Summer Camping etc, since you are not to far from home. After a little research I was shocked to find an article about a teacher in your area, starting a second Prom for "non-gays"! I am not really sure if you realize how others view your area, when they see such things, especially in an age when bullying has proven to have heartbreaking and even fatal results! It does not say much about a community that not only allows bullying (and make no mistake, it is a form of bullying!) but allows such blatant bullying from teachers. In the article, she said that gays "had no purpose in life"! As someone who lives in a small community, I understand the economic impact of a little bad press. I am sure that if this type of bullying continues, you may end up with a lot of unwanted press. I urge you to treat these children as you would if they were your own! As for myself, we won't be visiting your area anytime soon. I really try to shelter the kids from such bigotry.

WOW!

He'll be the first pope to resign since pope Celestine V stepped down in 1294.

I almost have some respect for the pope now- almost.

According to CNN it wasn't Celestine V. From CNN website:

"The last pope to resign was Gregory XII in 1415. He did so to end a civil war within the church in which more than one man claimed to be pope."

Did you catch the HBO film about the Catholic clergy and their despicable cover ups last week? Ratzinger was THE one who all the scandals were sent to for him to review and he did NOTHING. He should never have been put into that role. I'm wondering if it was too much for him.

I am shocked that the person leading this segregated prom issue is a special education teacher. Hasn't she witnessed her students being bullied? Hasn't she worked to end bullying? Now she has become a bully herself. There is a parallel here. I am saddened that someone like her is part of the school system

That, and a bad case of Curial politics with a side infection of Euro Bank. I also suspect that his mind is going, and in odd moments he's been flipping back to his shady youth.

I used to know someone who had gone through seminary at the Vatican and HE claimed it was some of the wildest sex scenes he had ever seen in the dorms and private areas of the blessed house o' God. Another pal went all through seminary in California and said the same thing. Neither of them went on to being priests, by the way!

Do not think for ONE moment that old Ratzy did NOT have some extra curricular activities in his younger, or maybe NOT so much younger, days.

Hey Gurty? I see the republicans are still going after Obama apointee Chuck Hagel pinning him as anti semite. How queer is that? I know how to end our little problem over there, The first step is bringing all the troops home. The second step is expelling a couple groups of people from here. The third step is isolation and sovereignty from America. The fourth step is outlawing buggery and use of the word gay. The 5th step is ending the tax code. The 6th step is ending the federal reserve bank. I got plenty more but I'll stop there. For now.

Was it Churchill who said "The truth is anti semite?"

Thank you for catching why I posted this story in the first place. It's bad enough that it's one more example of mindless bigotry and ugly prejudice by folk who don't realize what complete asses they are making of themselves here, but it's who the leader of these asses is. A Special Education teacher? God help these people, they let this loon around impressionable children five days a week and they're worried that their teenagers might see gay at the prom. Kinda makes your skin crawl, doesn't it?
