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.
    There is no need to research homosexuality as a pathology, since it has been demonstrated conclusively that it is not. It would be like research heterosexuality to determine whether IT is a pathology. Get some education on this issue before you speak about it, please.

    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.
    I love Macklemore. Been one of my favorites for a couple years now.

    I pretty much agree with the message of his song, and personally I'd be fine if they played it in school. If another one of the students had wanted to play some christian song, I'd be fine with that too.

    What a ridiculous thing to suspend the teacher for, particularly when it was a student who brought the song in and wanted it played in the first place.

    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...
    Being accepting of homosexuality does not make you pro-gay anymore than being accepting of people who smoke makes you a smoker or pro-cigarretes. It makes you: accepting. You know, your posts on gay issues keep getting more and more tainted with homophobic venom. Gay men wear panties, it's not 'okay to be gay' and dozens of others such great hits. Good luck with that in your personal life.

    PS: Don't hide behind the catholic church to justify your homophobia. It makes you look incredibly dishonest.

    If the teacher had played it for herself, it wouldn't have been okay. However, since it was for a student's project, I don't see the issue. Students should be able to express opinions that offend others.

    That teacher is an idiot. You NEVER play a song or movie or anything like that if you haven't listened to/watched it yourself. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    If accepting homosexuality doesnt make you pro gay...what does it make you then ? This song was acceptance it was PROMOTION and dont try to belittle the catholic church because you believe you came from a monkey originally...Your posts arent anymore tainted then they ever were...they were always mostly venoumous rhetoric...before you accuse anyone of anything hatuey...open up your closet door and take out all the dirty laundry thats been in there....and you are not qualified nor do you have the authority to label my opinions.
    Like I said and I stand by there is a SMALL faction that want ALL GAY EVERYDAY AND THATS OK...and want to do just what you did in your post...try to paint anyone that disagrees with any part of ALL GAY is ok...is a bad person...a religious zealot or a bigot...more people like me need to tell you to go stuff your opinion

    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....
    It's funny how little you people read before jumping on the bandwagon. The teacher didn't play the song. A student asked to play it, and the teacher allowed it to be played after making sure it wasn't profane or violent. Please read before jumping on this poor woman.

    And if she had played a song about Jesus, the conservatives and fake libertarians would be lamenting about her freedom of speech.

    If the student expresses an opinion, why should the teacher be responsible for it anyway? Seems to me that the student should be reponsible for his or her own opinion. You know, personal responsibility.

    Agreed. That's why Christian students should be allowed to pray out loud in their classrooms at the start of each school day.
