These were eighth graders, not seniors.
    I think 8th graders can deal with the fact that some people are gay. My son's in 4th grade and he gets it.

    I agree that the line on religious expression has been drawn too broadly. While I don't like the idea of mandatory prayers to Jesus, I think a moment to allow private prayer to the student's god of choice is fine. I also have no real problem with having a Bible Study club as long as it's voluntary.

    Since you brought the issue up: Do you have religious courses anywhere in US in schools that is?

    This is an important question for people sometimes ask me.

    It very strongly correlates to physical location in the country. Most of the time, no, but biology classes in much of the South have become de facto religious classes in the past ten to fifteen years. In fact, the public school system in the southern fourth of the country is becoming increasingly indistinguishable from parochial schools, save the emphasis tends to be on evangelical Protestantism.

    I personally see nothing wrong with the lyrics, as it's nothing explicit or obsene.

    But then again, the school may have rules about this. I would have to look into it.

    I went to high school in the South, with in the last 10-15 years, we learned about evolution.
    We did not learn about god.

    Thanks.

    So it is unofficial deviation from the educational plan then. Can't believe it, South Park was right:

    Re: Teacher suspended for playing song about being gay

    Based on those lyrics, I would say this is an intensely political song, and does enter into partisan territory at points, so in judging the actions taken, the first question I would ask would be in regards to whether a rap (or other) song dissing liberals would receive the same treatment? If so, then the actions taken might be understandable, but if not, then there would be reason to suspect political bias.

    So did I. And my 'education' in the public school was a lot more like this:

    Re: Teacher suspended for playing song about being gay

    Your mean some people actually would object to a teacher of middle school students playing music that:

    1. That calls gays "f..gots"
    2. That attacks conservatives
    3. The ridicules the Bible
    4. That declares there is a universal God as a fact
    5. That attacks the Catholic church
    6. That declares the Catholic religion is "hate"
    7. That baptismal water is "poison"
    8. That the world is so hateful that children rightly want to die

    I can't imagine to anyone objecting to that. Everyone knows there is a universal God and atheists are liars and idiots, Christians are the most hateful people on earth, the Bible is an outdated joke, that gays are just f..gots, and really child should just commit suicide to avoid a hateful world.

    That is what 13 years need to know. The world is hateful, best to just commit suicide if anyone is giving you a hard time or you are unhappy.

    Oh, yes, and then claimed before cameras that anyone who disagrees with any of that ^ is a "BIGOT." I say who is the "bigot" is that teacher - and trying to impose her prejudices, her religion, her politics and her bigotry on her students.

    Teachers can do their own free speech on their own time on their own dime to an audience not required by law to listen and then be tested on it.

    As this type story comes up over and over again, are students EVER told it's ok to be straight?
