    I don't have a problem at all, because I don't have to believe in any specific religion's "God". I do believe in a higher power, that I call God. I choose to listen to my own mind and heart rather than those words that are "supposedly" from God in the Bible or any other religious texts/books.

    She didn't try to shove anything down anyone's throat. The school has no right to force same-sex couples to pay more for their prom tickets than heterosexual couples have to pay.

    Lesbian Teen Speaks Out on Cancelled Prom - The Early Show - CBS News

    Personally, I don't think there should have been separate prices for individual tickets and couples tickets. That isn't very fair to anyone who doesn't have an opposite sex date.

    And she was further discriminated against when they told her she and her date would have to arrive separately and leave if any of the other students were uncomfortable with them being at the prom. I didn't see the stipulation that other students with "individual" tickets had to all arrive separately. And the other students do not have a right to not be uncomfortable. If they did, then I bet there would be a few more couples that could be asked to leave, since there are plenty of heterosexual couples that make others "uncomfortable".

    As for the tux, she has every right to wear an outfit to prom that is deemed appropriate for guys to wear. Her wearing a tux, or even a guy wearing a dress, does not disrupt the learning environment (since there is no actual lessons occurring during prom) nor does it affect the safety of the students nor it is a promotion of an illegal activity. The cases in the past upholding school dress codes, did so based on one of those above principles. And it has been said by the SCOTUS that students do not "check their rights at the school doors". Therefore, it is a case of gender discrimination. Even if she were straight and just asking to wear a tux, it would still be gender discrimination.

    Why? I have no desire to force anyone to accept what I believe. I do however, expect others to obey the rules of fairness and equality as set forth by the Constitution of the US. No matter what their religious beliefs are. I strongly believe that the Freedom of Religion is also a Freedom from Religion.

    Looks like some of the catholic church priests were loving the children a little to much. Oh well, love the sinners.

    There's at least as much child molestation going on within the protestant faiths.
    So priestly celibacy can't be the whole answer.

    First you argue one side of the God issue or stand then you argue the other side.......Personally I have no clue where you stand on the issue except that anyone who disagrees with you is wrong or a bigot......Sorry I can't accept that kind of thinking.........

    I agree with that 100%. Look at David Koresh.
