    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.
    This is fine as long as it is privately paid for.

    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.
    Great. I think YOU are wrong. Im not going to insult you though because I disagree with you. Thats the foundation of the word tolerance...accepting people...even if you disagree with them. That requires neither to change...just accept. And I do. Live...love...do whatever the hell you want.

But if you made me principal of a school, I'm not going to ban kids who don't like gays from prom.
    The school district has a rule in place. You dont like it...go there...live in their district, and vote to change the rule. Its not that difficult of a concept.

    Maybe you have missed it. I specifically said if they had simply gone...made their plans and gone without creating the spectacle, its highly unlikely we would be READING about any of this. But that wasnt enough...they wanted to make a STATEMENT. Well...they did. And here we are.

    Actions of who? This article only mentioned punishing the whole class to avoid offending extremist religious nuts. It didn't mention the actions of anyone.

    Maybe they should've just done a segregated prom like another Buy-Bull Belt school did a few years back.

    Really? Because what you said was:

    But ya know...I STILL think brothers and sisters shouldnt be allowed to marry.
    Perhaps you meant that you didn't think they should get married, but that whether they did or not was not for you or anyone else to decide for them? That would be a bit more consistent.

    It isn't decided by popular vote. Folks in charge created rules that were in violation of students Title IX rights. Constance went through the appropriate channels to get the rules changed.

    So instead of using the legal framework to challenge a rule, she should have just broken it? You think that would have been a better option?

    Also, still doesn't change the fact that the rule should have never been made in the first place. Using the authority of a public school administrator to push personal viewpoints at the expense of students is not acceptable.

    What really amazes me are those that support this school "upholding" their view of morality are the same ones that say that morality shouldn't be taught in schools.

    I guess indoctrination is ok with schools as long as it is anti-gay indoctrination.
