    The teacher shouldn't be suspended and the world needs to realize you don't have a right to not be offended. This happens all the time when teachers have any kind of Christian material and we see it when kids try to express faith as well. This issue isn't much different.

    Re: Teacher suspended for playing song about being gay

    People are up in arms over a gay song that has no business in school anymore than a pro catholic song should be allowed in school....kids are suspended for wearing innocuous t shirts to school....this is another classic...if its GAY ITS GOT TO BE OK...bs to that...I dont know if the teacher should have been suspended or not..but she should not have played that song, just like she shouldnt play religious songs and she should get some sort of discipline for it and told not to do it again...even if its a letter of reprimand...
    Being offended isnt just for certain small groups...if your going to we cant offend people route over the smallest of things...like a T shirt with a cross...than you damn sure cant play songs about being gay and/or finding jesus....either stop this crap for everyone...or make this crap for everyone...not just pick and choose..Oh we want this so its good We dont want that because its bad...all or nothing...

    While I certainly don't find the song offensive, it does have some religious and partisan messages that make it inappropriate for public school students without parental consent. Suspension is overkill though.

    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.
    Well I suppose if she played a song about loving Jesus she would have been crucified by the progressives and atheists....

    I'm tired of the First Amendment being trivialized.... I suppose I wouldn't have a problem with the song just as long as there was an objective Jesus song...

    It was wrong because the teacher was brainwashing her students with her values - and that is not right - that is not her position. Teachers shouldn't be teaching their politics in the classroom - at least not to kids....

    Oh and what the hell does sexuality have to do with art when you're dealing with kids?

    When is the transsexual rap song coming out?

    Isn't sexuality a private thing when you're twelve-teen? What the hell is a matter with these teachers??

    It's like these progressives are obsessed with the sexuality of children.....

    The song isn't really about "being gay". it's loaded down with tons of political/religious garbage. Right or left, anyone with an ounce of common sense knows the song was inappropriate. Severity of punishment is more a matter of taste, I suppose. I wouldn't have suspended here, but i would have given her a major warning that anything similar in the future and you are out of a job and i'll make sure all your future employers know about you inability to properly function as a teacher.

    The homosexual assault on American school children will NOT stop, anymore than they will stop trying to get into the boy scouts. They want access to children. Send your children to public schools at your own risk. To think the homosexual pathology consists entirely and exclusively of "different but equal" sexual practices is extremely naive. That is why no objective research has been done on the homosexual pathology since 1973. Any researcher who tried that would get fired faster than a researcher applying for a grant to study racial differences in IQs.
