    Ah -- no "special" status. I get it.

    That would indicate you support the right of a gay person to marry whoever they choose just like anybody else and think schools should teach that they are perfectly normal just like anybody else. You know -- not special.

    Unless you mean "special" in that same Orwellian sense that you use the term "intolerant", in which case, what you really mean is quite the opposite.

    One of the biggest problems is that many who cry about "Freedom of Religion" mistake the concept with the Freedom to require and force everyone to adhere to their particular religion and beliefs.

    I would say the poll is pretty meaningless.

    Christians Sue for Right Not to Tolerate Policies
    Many codes intended to protect gays from harassment are illegal, conservatives argue.

    ATLANTA ó Ruth Malhotra went to court last month for the right to be intolerant.

    Malhotra says her Christian faith compels her to speak out against homosexuality. But the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she's a senior, bans speech that puts down others because of their sexual orientation.

    Why do you start another topic? You really must be obsessed with this.

    What I supprt I have indicated reeatedly and clearly in this thread: That schools should teach cildren reading, writing, mathematics, science, history, geography, etc. - i.e. the skills they need - and that the teaching of morality is something that should be left to parents, family, friends, etc.

I see no reason schools should be any different

    Schools shouldn't tolerate children bullying each other. Period. Nothing more and nothing less.

    Telling kids they have to treat gays like every one else is not a special status.

    Exactly, that is what the student-parent handbooks specifically cover. I also acknowledged that the first day of school can be spent going over rules. There should be nothing more than that. After that, if a child misbehaves, they are punished for it. Simple.
