    The legal standard is that the school can not lead in prayer or religion. Schools are strictly prohibited from banning students from praying - and even lose federal funding unless they certify they will not ban children from engaging in prayer or other religious activities. The only restriction is they may not be done in a manner to disrupt class activities, just like anything else.

    Unfortunately that's just not so - see Post #94.

    The only problem I see with the lyric is that they are too political for most school settings. If it was in high school, than I don't see an issue, but middle or elementary would be the wrong setting.

    Freedom of Speech issue?

    One student asked to play the song. Since it wasn't violent or explicit, the teacher said it was OK. Another student took offense to the song and complained to the Principal. Teacher got suspended.
    That's ridiculous. I was reading and watching the color purple in 8th grade.

    My high school was nationally ranked, a part of it had to do with us actually learning things and not just the sugar coated version. I'm not saying that there aren't topics more appropriate for different age groups but there was nothing wrong with that song being being played for that age group.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    No, the ruling you cite is a different issue. From your own post:

    The ruling came in Santa Fe Independent School District v. Jane Doe, a case involving the Sante Fe Independent School District in Galveston, Texas, which allowed student-initiated and student-led prayer to be broadcast over the public address system before high school football games.

    That is a very different issue. Were any and all students offered access to that broadcast system to also express religion and non-religious views? Or only those students for their prayer?

    Not really strange at all unless you are completely ignorant of the hijacking of the educational establishment in all the "soft sciences" by leftist ideology, supplanting basic logic and the scientific method.

    "Righties" don't want to give massive grants to a bunch of desk-bound losers who can't get real jobs nor provide anything useful to society, so academia now has become more of a leftwing mouthpiece, especially in the soft sciences. Gimmedat grant money. "Lefties" love to pay of liars if they are singing a song they enjoy, so it's a happy marriage.

    Your post summarized in one picture:



    You wrote all that nonsense to simply say you didn't care about being called a bigot as you rightfully should be. Why even reply? You're a homophobe. Deal with it.

    Re: Teacher suspended for playing song about being gay

    It's a good thing the society we live in is so egalitarian. This is pathetic, I suppose that if a homosexual reported offense to playing "American Girl" in class, the teacher would also be suspended?
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    Says the guy who claims gay men wear panties and play husband and wife. Is that how you speak around your daughter? You've definitely shown your true colors. The best part is that you can't come to terms that being accepting of gay does not necessarily make one 'pro-gay' whatever that means but balk at the thought that being unaccepting of homosexuality as a fact, makes you a homophobe.
