    What an amazing mentality you seem to have. Even when you are too careless to comprehend my post, it's still my fault. But I guess that doesn't surprise me, I find people rarely take responsibility for their mistakes. I shouldn't expect you to be any different.
    This is a pretty elaborate dodge, and denial....I don't think I had a problem with anything you wrote...The problem we are having here is your own ability to have an honest conversation...Ah well...too bad.

    Yes, I agree your post is a dodge and denial. You failed reading comprehension and then tried to blame me for it. Take responsibility for your failures, don't blame others.

    ....I don't think I had a problem with anything you wrote
    You mean except for your completely inability to understand it.

    The problem we are having here is your own ability to have an honest conversation...Ah well...too bad.
    What's not honest about what I said? Or are you just saying random **** to distract from the fact you don't comprehend the written word well?

    *sigh* I swear, every time I try and give you a chance and attempt to engage you in conversation, you remind me of why that is a mistake....But this topic isn't you or I, so, if you are saying that I am not comprehending what you are saying, then I'll give it one more chance, tell me what I am not getting here....Now I mean it here, stop attacking me, and address the article. I want to understand your position...Here I'll even post the OP again so you can directly address it...

    BRANFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) — A high school student who founded a pro-life club says the principal banned her group from using life-sized fetus models as displays.Samantha Bailey-Loomis, a 17-year-old senior at Branford High School tells WWLP-TV that the school’s principal, Lee Panagoulias, refused to let them set up the fetus models during lunch.
    “He tells us that this topic in particular is too controversial to be talked about in public school,” she explained to WWLP.

    You mean except for your completely inability to understand it.
    Instead of simply attacking me, why don't you show me what I am not understanding about your position?

    What's not honest about what I said? Or are you just saying random **** to distract from the fact you don't comprehend the written word well?
    Again, either show me what it is you think I am not addressing properly or I'll just assume that you are only in this thread to attack people.

    I'm not attacking you, I'm attacking the fact you didn't comprehend what you read.

    Instead of simply attacking me, why don't you show me what I am not understanding about your position?
    It is really clear if you simply read it.

    Again, either show me what it is you think I am not addressing properly or I'll just assume that you are only in this thread to attack people.
    All you have to do is go back and read my posts. You want me to do extra work because you were sloppy or lazy the first time. That's asinine. Go back, read the posts, realize why this is NOT the hypocrisy you insinuated it was and realize when I said something is the appropriate time and place and when it's not.

    I'm not going to do extra work simply because you didn't bother to read it the first time. I will help you out though, my first three of my first four posts in this thread were numbers 11, 36 and 113. Go.

    Ok, let's concentrate on this....You did mention 'appropriate times, and or places', so let me ask, what was inappropriate about what they were displaying, or doing?

    I am coming back to this post because you said that I didn't comprehend what you were saying, so let's break it down....

    Obviously.

    They are in different schools with different communities and different values.
    Can you demonstrate that the 'community' has values in line with the principle?

    Trying to compare a school from one school from one town in one state to a different school in a different town in a different state is unfair.
    Oh, I don't think so...In that case then there wouldn't be a need for a Federal education system.

    Furthermore, I agree with the principal's decision.
    Funny, because other than being identified as a "pro life student group" the article didn't go into any detail about what the display was.

    The school should not take a position on either side of such a politically charged issue.
    Clearly they did though. By shutting down the display, they are defacto taking the choice side of the issue. But at the same time, it doesn't say what the display was. For all we know it could have been as simple as the different stages of growth of the baby inside the womb.

    There's nothing wrong with discussing the political issue, but it should be done at the appropriate times, with fact based literature.
    Unless you can demonstrate that there was some misinformation being given out or discussed, then you are assuming something you don't know...

    A student pro-life group setting up displays at lunch time does not meet those standards.
    Why not? Other student groups were allowed to set up their displays at lunch time.

    .
    Other articles stated that the group has had the display set up in the hall after school hours in the past.

    Apparently , the principal thought the display should not be set up during the lunch hour.

    The display was models of fetuses but they were not in a model of a womb.

    They looked like miniature dolls made out of a plastic like material.

    Ok, so? I mean it's not like they have the posters of babies murdered by abortion that you see in many protests set up....Why are pro choice folks so afraid of people seeing what a baby in the womb looks like?

    The fetus models were not in a womb model.

    I am not afraid of the model fetuses and for all we know that might not really be the issue.

    Perhaps the pamphlets they wanted to hand out during lunch was the real issue.

    I don't know what the principal found objectionable but he is the principal of the school.

    If the pro life group was unhappy with the decision they were welcome to take their case to the school board or the superintendent.

    But it wasn't an analogy, it was an accusation of hypocrisy. You stated public schools say it's okay to teach tolerance/acceptance of homosexuals, and suggested it was hypocrisy to believe high school students couldn't handle this. The problem is you have ZERO evidence THIS principal has said anything about homosexuality. This principal does not speak for the education system, only for his school. And he made a decision in the best interest of his school and what another principal at another school decides is best for their school is irrelevant..

    Can you demonstrate that the 'community' has values in line with the principle?
    Don't have to, was only showing how ridiculous your premise was. What one community values is not the same as what another community values, so comparing one school district to another is pointless.

    Oh, I don't think so...In that case then there wouldn't be a need for a Federal education system.
    If you don't think so, then you clearly have no idea about the educational system and should stop posting in this thread immediately. That's not me being a jackass, that's just a sincere recommendation.

    Funny, because other than being identified as a "pro life student group" the article didn't go into any detail about what the display was.
    It doesn't matter what the display was, it is a political position in an environment which is not controlled and moderated.

    Clearly they did though. By shutting down the display, they are defacto taking the choice side of the issue.
    That's stupid. No, really, that's stupid. Refusing the display says NOTHING about the position of the school or principal on the issue, only that they feel the issue did not belong in that particular place at that particular time. Lack of approval does not mean disapproval.

    But at the same time, it doesn't say what the display was. For all we know it could have been as simple as the different stages of growth of the baby inside the womb.
    But we do know the principal said it was not appropriate at that time and place.

    Unless you can demonstrate that there was some misinformation being given out or discussed, then you are assuming something you don't know...
    Seriously? Did you seriously say this same thing again? God damn...

    I'm not assuming anything, I'm not even talking about this particular display. I'm talking about how a political issue should be presented in a school. It has nothing to do with THIS story at all...let's pretend we're talking about gun control for a second. ANY politically charged issue being discussed at school should be in a controlled and moderated environment, with fact based literature (not propaganda or emotion) driving the discussion.

    I honestly have no idea how many times I have to say this before you'll understand it.

    Why not? Other student groups were allowed to set up their displays at lunch time.
    No politically charged and highly emotional issues should be allowed at school unless under the situation I just described previously.
