    I live in the south, too. And your right to act irrational and show up to a school making a 'big scene' which could be construed as potentially harmful does not trump my right to send my child to a safe, public institution. Nor does location have much to do with it. I imagine folks in the north wouldn't want you acting irrationally and exposing their children to some potential harm simply because of your particular angry mood that day, either.

    Either way, good luck with your lawsuit if you wish to put this to the test.
    I have the right to act just as irrationally as I want when addressing my kids' educational concerns.

    Um... Bro, that depends. If your "irrational" behavior is perceived as threatening, or disruptive of normal operations, then yeah they will call the law on you. It's called "disturbing the peace", as Gates found out.

    At any rate, I've had better luck in dealing with my son's teachers and counselors and etc by mostly staying cool and speaking rationally, no matter how POed I was. Once in a while, letting a subtle hint of quiet anger find its way into your voice and demeanor gets a lot more milage than ranting and raving.

    Where did I ever say that I wasn't going to be cool when dealing with my kids' teachers? That seems to be an auto-assumption being made here.

    I did, however, lose my cool when dealing with one elementary school principle a few years ago, when I suspected one of my kids was being molested by a member of the faculty. She threatened to call the cops and I dared her to do so. I told her I would call them for her, if she wanted to handle it that way. I was purdy un-hinged that day, I must admit.

    Using that line of thought, then conservatives calling libs christian bashers, traitors, and (gasp!) communists is also an attempt to intimidate them to make them afraid to express their opinions.

    But, I will tell you now that neither Buddhism, nor Hinduism condone homosexuality. Buddhism doesn't address it one way, or another, but does say that you must approach religion based on what you believe to be true. Hinduism condemns homosexuality the same way Christianity and Islam do. However, just like Christianity, Hindusim is interpreted in different ways and some Hindus accept homosexuality as being ok.

    You still gonna post a link?
    Actually, I believe the Catholic church (the religion I was raised in) characterizes homosexuality as an "objective disorder," but that being gay in and of itself is not a sin. What is sinful is engaging in homosexual acts.

    You'll also be arrested for such behavior if you choose to do it at a school, as your actions could be construed as dangerous. Being upset is one thing; anger and behaving irrationally is another.

    No, you used the term 'irrational' (irrational definition | Dictionary.com). You have the right to drive to the school and behave rationally when talking to the faculty. If you can act respectfully, chances are someone will listen to you. If you go in acting irrational, then they'll simply call the law on you.

    I'm really skeptical that this young man has willingly gone into "counseling."

    Christian bashers and traitors, yes. Communist is accurate, however, because all Liberal support Socialist/Facist/Communist ideology in some way, shape, or fashion.

    I doubt I'll be arrested. I can only be arrested if I show that I'm willing to cause someone on the premises bodily harm. Talking sternly to a faculty member can't be construed as dangerous.

    That candy ass attitude ain't gonna get you no where.

    Sternly? No. Irrationally? Most definitely.

    Your previous posts indicated you'd 'raise hell' or act irrationally. You do that, they'd call the law. If you can act rationally - as i've said all along - then someone will probably listen to what you have to say. If you can't, you'll do your complaining behind bars.

    In any case, i'll assume your previous posts were overblown and your choice of vernacular was badly chosen, if your last post was what you really meant to say.
