    But what do you believe they think about the bullying of homosexual students, or at least, those pupils who believe themselves to be homosexual? Do you think that the APA believes that it is wrong to 'confront' the sinful behaviour of self-identified homosexuals? Or do you think that they see this as a duty? One person's 'confront' might well be seen as anothers' 'bullying'.

    Neither you, nor they, have ever articulated any reasoning at all behind their very bizarre assertion that this anti-bullying program is "a nationwide push to promote the homosexual lifestyle in public schools." (That quote is from their website.) So for you to claim that their reasoning is sound is, at best, an oversight on your part and, at worst exactly the type of bias you're accusing me of. They have stated a claim, and, so far as I can tell, backed it up with absolutely nothing, in a manner that is substantively at odds with everything I've found about the program itself. So... yeah. Dumbass.

Switch lists every month.
    Do you believe that from the perspective of AFA such efforts would be any different from what the current program does? In what ways would your suggestions be any less likely to promote homosexuality (from their perspective)?

    If this thread doesn't devolve into baseless Christian-bashing (and maybe it already has), then I stand corrected. However, I am willing to bet that is the direction the thread takes... and that was the OP's intent to begin with.
    So what the hell are you arguing about. You don't know abouthe AFA, you apparently did not understand the point of the thread but you were perfectly willing to jump on those of us who did and believed that reducing bullying is a good thing.

    My father use to say, "it is better to be thought a fool than open up your mouth and remove all doubt".

    Also, Food for thought. About a year ago I saw this on a BAPTIST (fundamentalist) church "Faith produces blossoms while Religion produces nuts, be sure you are among the former." Pretty much sums up my feelings. Going to have a bumper sticker of this made.
