JACKSON, Miss. A northern Mississippi school district decided Wednesday not to host a high school prom after a lesbian student demanded she be able to attend with her girlfriend and wear a tuxedo.
The Itawamba County school district's policy requires that senior prom dates be of the opposite sex. The American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi had given the district until Wednesday to change that policy and allow 18-year-old Constance McMillen to escort her girlfriend, who is also a student, to the dance on April 2.
Instead, the school board met and issued a statement announcing it wouldn't host the event at Itawamba County Agricultural High School in Fulton, "due to the distractions to the educational process caused by recent events."

“the left is using these problem people to push their own anti-family agenda. Anything that draws people away from traditional family values weakens the fabric of this country, and the left will aggrandize it or fully endorse it.”
I have to say I agree 100%.
“Our founding fathers gave them the death penalty, because they knew they were a danger to society.”
The claim was made that the founding fathers provided for the execution of homosexuals. The Constitution allows for the death penalty, but requires due process.
It is the obligation of the person(s) making this claim to cite where in the Constitution or the historical adminsitration of the Constitution the founding fathers called for the execution of homosexuals. It would further support the argument if one could demonstrate that such a thing had ever happened.
In the absence of such proof, I can only assume that this is just made up BS.
Your links do nothing to support the argument. One states that there was punishment attached to sodomy practiced by homo and heterosexuals. One reference talks about rules previous to 1776, before the founding of the nation, again applicable to homo and heterosexuals. Another refers to laws after 1860 applicable to gays and straights. Nothing about the founding fathers calling for the execution of homosexuals as was claimed by “concerned about politics”.
Also, all of these web links seem to be left wing, “we are so oppressed” web sites. Are you really relying on left wing whining to support a ridiculous, indefensible falacy.
As I said, sodomites cite such laws and executions to gain pity. I didn’t investigate the sites Google cites, but merely pointed you to a resource for further investigation.
Frankly, your doubt is surprising, since such laws and executions don’t seem to be a point of contention with either side of the sodomy-vs-normality debate. But perhaps you’re investigating the question for the first time? If so, your ignorance is understandable.
Try some other searches in Google, perhaps. There’s plenty of disputed info, but also plenty that’s undisputed.
I knew a man who had been an elementary school principal in the 1940s, sent there because the school had severe discipline problems.
His solution, corporal punishment, worked very well and redeemed many a student.
But then, a single mother enrolled her 3rd grade son in the school. She supported the two of them not by work, but by litigation, long before it was fashionable. He son was a violent psychopath, and when he would be punished, she would sue the school, and often win.
So even while she was enrolling him, she threatened the principal with a lawsuit if he so much laid a finger on her little monster.
Well, the boy physically attacked his classmates, actively vandalized school property, stole, and finally broke into another classroom and hurled their pet guinea pigs out a high window, to their deaths.
But the principal had a solution. Because he had attacked his classmates during recess, the principal decided that he should no longer take his recess with his 3rd grade peers, but with the 5th grade boys.
And the 5th grade boys did not tolerate his antics, and preceded to pound it out of him. Quickly his mother was at school, threatening a lawsuit. But the principal just shrugged and said that the school was not liable. Her only recourse would be to sue the dirt poor parents of the 5th grade boys.
No money in it for her, she withdrew her son from school and moved on.
I say this, because the students at this high school should find out who was responsible for ruining their prom, by being a litigious dork. Hopefully some of the other girls could explain to her what they think of her taking away their once-in-a-lifetime experience.
..then I realized this is a very good call by the school board!
They knew they'd be mucked in a lawsuit & obnoxious media if they didn't allow the usurpers to wreck the prom...
...and if they did acquiesce, the board probably couldn't look themselves in the mirror...(this is Mississippi after all, the heart of the Bible Belt!)
Let the two dykes deal with the mess now!
you have got to be kidding me -
A TAPCO magazine!!!!!
(Snerk) Nice pic - did she get a date?
Like I said in Post 56. Let the kids go to the dance. Either they will be tolerated or whispered about, but then there are none of these ridiculous headlines and kids seeking attention aren’t catered to.
Be careful there. That could lead to charges of harassment due to sexual orientation. Also, it could lead to a civil rights lawsuit against the offenders from the sexual deviants. And lord knows whatever else could come up from the queers.
I hope the normal students remember this through their lives. They will be able to say that they were prevented from enjoying their high school prom because a couple of queers ruined it for them. That’ll be nice to tell their kids.
Kids undr 40-45 have no idea how much the culture has collapsed.
and folks thought the 60s were bad
At age 18 do you *really* know who you are? Criminey ....I’m thinkin’ that this teenager probably couldn’t get a date to the prom with a hetero anyway and decided that, to be *cool* and *noticed* this was a novel way-to-go.
I predict that this big life mistake will never go away and will follow her wherever she goes, for the rest of her life.
Should have stuck to it unless they got a court order. Then cancel.

Speaking of being stuck. LOL!
Exactly. Some girls go to the prom with their friends. Who would’ve stopped them? But, she wanted to wear a tux, go officially as a “date”, and she got the ACLU involved. It was all about attention and pushing an issue.
Google means there really is that permanent record your teachers warned you about. It's part of every real HR department's due-diligence. Nobody's gonna hire a lawsuit-happy minority.
