    Guess what? Some rules/laws ARE outdated. Do you want a list?
    Some are. You bet.

    But there is only one side Ive seen on this board that routinely attacks and ridicules people because of their different beliefs. Oh...I know it happens all the time out there in the 'real world'...but in here? The pathetic narrow minded intolerant bigots all wear the same pointy little hats.
    And some people believed the same thing about interracial couples 40 years ago. They were convinced that they were right and their laws weren't "stupid or outdated" at all. They even felt that their constitutional amendments banning interracial marriages were necessary to maintain their own beliefs on what marriages were supposed to be lawful and allowed.

    There are even people today who believe that interracial dating is a sin, and should not be condoned or allowed. I know a member of my husband's family feels this way, and my grandparents did. My grandparents would say the same exact things you are saying about gay couples, only it would be about interracial couples (of course they'd have also said it about gay couples). There are plenty of people still left in the US that would not want their children exposed to interracial couples, because they find them sinful and/or unnatural and/or just wrong.

    Hell...some people threw out the whole idea of morals and values and partied while Rome burned. Some people have gone from values to situational ethics. And SOME people still believe in pretty fundamental scientific realities that men and women kinda work together physiologically.

    Oh...dont worry...Im all about live and let live...truly. I have nothing but love for people and hope they find peace and happiness...even people I dont agree with. But ya know...I STILL think brothers and sisters shouldnt be allowed to marry. Im STILL opposed to polygamy. And I STILL think homosexual marriage is wrong.

    Seems contradictory to me. If you are all about live and let live, why do you want to control what brothers and sisters do with each other?

    1. Why would he be paying for their treatment? Shouldn't the parents pay for the treatment?

    2. Does that mean you think we shouldn't allow women over 40 to have children? As I understand it, they have an even greater risk of producing children with birth defects than incestuous couplings.

    And I think you are wrong. Love isn't about what parts fit together nicely. Love is about who fits together emotionally with someone else.

    I have values. Fairness is one of my big ones. Love is another one. My values may not match yours, but they are still values.

    That isn't a problem. However, when a person abuses their authority as a school administrator to promote such views in unacceptable. Holding a personal viewpoint and using power to force that viewpoint on others are very different things. For example, I consider bigotry towards homosexuals to be quite distasteful, and I don't like people who promote such viewpoints. But if you made me principal of a school, I'm not going to ban kids who don't like gays from prom.

    An update to this, the Miss. Safe Schools Coalition is organizing a prom for them.

    Mississippi Safe Schools Coalition

    Sounds like this will be more practical than going to New Orleans for their prom, since most of the kids' parents are probably not going to approve of their children going to prom almost 4 hours away.
