    And if people disagree with the "Christian" they should be able to bully "Christians", right?

This is unconsciounable, and really has very little to do with Christianity as such.

    I am painting christians in general because that's what they call themselves. These are the christians (or so they claim to be) that are against homosexuality, think that bulling is OK and want to legislate their morality on ALL.
    And a majority of those sects read from the same bible. And yes, you are right, i can not find one indoctrinates hate.

    No. I claimed that schools holding a special day to celebrate homosexuality legitimizes being gay. It has nothing to do with bullying.

    If Christian students can't pray in school, why should you be able to have gay-day?

    1) Then you didn't actually answer the question you appeared to have answered (which specifically asked about how being anti-bullying promotes homosexuality). and...

    2) You're arguing from a fantasy position. Nothing about this program celebrates homosexuality. It's explicitly and specifically about breaking up high school cliques in order to reduce bullying.

    1) Students can pray in school, we just don't allow the school to set aside a specific time for it or condone it in pretty much any way.

    2) We don't have a "gay-day." If you'd actually read the article, you'd know that.

    If you think homosexuality is wrong, go for it. That doesn't mean it's OK to beat them up and belittle them. That's what the thread is about. Apparently saying that beating them is wrong is a "proTgay" agenda, and saying that this group of people is a bunch of douches is an attack on all reigion and Conservatism.
    You guys hate Christians. It's fine.

    I read it loud and clear through your posts calling them "****ing troglodytes", "ignorant", "bigoted", "douches", etc.

    Just because you hate them doesn't mean it isn't an attack.

    I'm not screaming "War on Christianity". I'm just calling you hateful.

    That's all.

    The AFA actively endorses legalized discrimination against gays as well as advocates the psuedo science of reparative therapy that often times has had disastrous results.. That is bullying.
