    You'd win that bet easily. As long as they are normal, healthy people (hetero or gay).

    Or, they shut it down for the same reason.

    Edit: And, I didn't bring up parents not paying, I brought up them not enrolling their kids. And it was simply a suggestion as to a potential check on what you stated.

    No idea if it was actually the case or not.

    That said, I'm sure such a school could find plenty of students...

    Edit 2: Do you know one way or the other that this school taught such?
    No, I actually looked it up there site is suspended pending payment. this is what you get when looking up the Southland School inSugarland FL,

    southlandchristianschool.net expired on 05/11/2010 and is pending renewal or deletion.

    Interesting.

    It's possible that it is an old website that has yet to be removed.

    But yes, with that info it is more likely that they ceased payment for some reason.

    Perhaps cutting costs in preparation for the upcoming court battle?

    Or maybe they just aren't clever enough to have a satellite? Would you want you kid going to that even if you are Luddite?

    Well, I don't have a kid, and I'm not a Luddite, so I really have no idea.

    Why would they need a satellite (I assume you mean satellite dish/internet link)?

    I'm sure a hard line is available somewhere, or even a phone line.

Now why anyone would even question the timing of her pregnancy under such circumstances as her being married is beyond me unless there was a search for a reason to do what they did.

    This whole BS about the moral code is just that...BS. The whole story stinks of it.
    It's a good thing people are not sent to prison on speculation.

    The institution should be able to set any code of conduct that it wishes for its employees, if she was stupid enough to work for a bunch of theo-fascists that's her own fault.

    Um ya it is the individual right of the business owner to hire and fire who ever they want.

    They are one and the same.

    for me individual rights almost always win out.
    Except when the individual is a business owner right? There is no "right" to be employed, there is, however, the right of a property owner to do with their property whatever they see fit.

    What rights would that be? You seem to want to violate the business owners right to do what he wants with his property.
