"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
Most of this sort of thing goes on when parents leave values lessons to people who should be teaching Math, and Science. I wonder if the same level of just teaching "tolerance" would adhere if the song being played were Christian hymn's.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Ya, sure. voyeurism is a "disorder", yet homosexuality is not. Fetishism is a disorder, yet homosexuality is not. homosexuality was removed only due to pressure of homosexuals themselves and the media who pushes their garbage down everyone's throat. The musings amongst the bubble of PC fools you surround yourself with, who probably couldn't even pass a freshman real science class, have little bearing on the actual reality of why it was removed.
And no it wanst removed due to pressure of gay people. All gay people wanted was for the APA to look at a study that suggested that homosexuality wasnt a mental disorder and after 8 years of trying they finally did. Ive noticed when people make claims like yours they never offer any sort of proof to go along with it. So please if you have proof to back up your claims go ahead and post it.
Oh, I forgot another of my conditions: Teachers cannot be present. This means the thing is entirely student led, as it should be. I will get my popcorn and wait for the religious infighting that will inevitably develop, to which the school staff should not be allowed to interfere. Then we will all have achieved our civics lesson as to WHY THERE IS A SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. Religions are only nice to each other in societies where there is that separation. Once it is torn down, they always want to use government force to promote their own brand or doctrines.
You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
This is pretty simple as I see it...if your going to allow songs to be sung that are about any social group or social event...fine...just allow others to do the same thing...in this case it was a song about homosexuals...i dont have a problem with the song..My problem is that some want to insinuate that allowing a song about homosexuality is righteous and a civil rights issue and singing a christian song or religious song should not be allowed in school its offensive...this is the kind of thing that creates roadblocks it does not break down barriers...ALLOW BOTH or none...
