Skip to comments.Student Suspended For Saying Homosexuality Is Wrong (Local TV news video)
Posted on 09/22/2011 3:43:07 PM PDT by Mount Athos
A Fort Worth high school student was sent to the principals office earlier this week for telling another classmate he believes homosexuality is wrong.
Fourteen-year-old Dakota Ary spent most of the day Tuesday serving an in-school suspension. It was punishment for discussion in his German class at Fort Worths Western Hills High School.
We were talking about religions in Germany. I said, Im a Christian. I think being a homosexual is wrong, he said. It wasnt directed to anyone except my friend who was sitting behind me. I guess [the teacher] heard me. He started yelling. He told me he was going to write me an infraction and send me to the office.
An assistant principal called Arys mother at work to let her know he was in trouble.
At first I was in disbelief. My son is on the honor roll with great grades. I dont have any problems out of him, Holly Pope said.
After hearing Arys explanation of what happened, the assistant principal reduced the original suspension from two days to one. But Pope was not satisfied with that.
He was stating an opinion. He has a right to do that. They punished him for it, she said.
Attorney Matt Krause joined Ary and his mom at a Wednesday morning meeting with the principal. They asked for the blemish to be taken off his record and reassurance there would be no retaliation.
Students dont lose their first amendment rights just because they go in the schoolhouse door, Krause said.
District spokesman Clint Bond said the Fort Worth Independent School District does not comment on specific employee or student-related issues.
We are following district policy in our review of the circumstances and any resolution will likewise be in accordance with district policy, Bond said.
If Ary continues taking German hell have to learn from the same teacher who punished him. His mom is relying on faith that things will work out.
I want to believe the school will make the right decision. Thats something the school will need to handle, she said.
It’s a violation of free speech. The principal ought to be fired.
Get a good lawyer (or even a bad one) and sue them into tomorrow.
Hey, here’s an amazingly similar thread posted earlier!
The teacher had a picture of 2 men kissing on the wall in his German class. What’s up with that? Heard Mark Davis talking to the mom on the radio.
If the kid had said the opposite would it have somehow been “free speech”? Isn’t that a double standard?
“I guess [the teacher] heard me. He started yelling. He told me he was going to write me an infraction and send me to the office.”
Yeesh. Who’s teaching that German class, Klaus Nomi?
but i posted the video :)
God I pity these kids. They’ll be nobody’s fools, though. Strong and smart.
The teacher and school administration are heterophobic.....
No kidding. The kid has a right to his opinion!!
Foolish kid. Thinks he can say what he thinks. Back to indoctrination class now
Hardly a substitute for a search.
I got sent out of class for saying “Abortion was wrong”.
These ‘Breeders’ have to be quashed early.
Honor student suspended for having beliefs that go against our PC school system.
This is a capital offense to the liberals who run the schools. Poor kid has been outed as a conservative. I expect his grades to suffer for it.
I’m sorry but I’m from the old school. If it were my son I might be doing some jail time and the teacher would be doing some “dental” time
But doesn’t this teacher want to consider all sides and hear differing opinions. Doesn’t he want to have respect for views that are different from his? (snicker, snicker)
Probably send the poor kid to the Russian Front.
“I guess [the teacher] heard me. He started yelling.”
Struck a live nerve, did he? I guess that’s the teacher’s way of coming out of the closet. I’ll bet he’s a Democrat too.
Sadly Big Brother is alive and well in all corners of the country. Wherever Libs are, you will no longer be allowed to speak freely. Be aware, wherever you are! We are ALL being watched. (at least all we Conservatives)
Well, Nazis had that whole gay-domination-undercurrent.
Many of the head Nazis were queer.
Indeed, lots of people opine “artist” Hitler liked a little rear entry.
Another reason for the seperation of School and State
Shouldn’t the homosexual agenda be setting an example? After all, bullying is bullying no matter who does it. They should refrain from doing to others what they don’t want done to them.
These fagots are such a pain in the rear... wait....
“Not brushing your teeth” is wrong too, it is un-hygenic and can lead to disease.
Gee, kinda just like homosexual sex acts....
There is no laws saying you have to brush your teeth, and there is no law saying you can’t have gay sex.
So if I was in class and I said that not brushing my teeth is wrong will I get suspended too?
I guess free thought is now banned. Quick strap this kid down and get the lobotomy saw because vee can’t have “incorrect thought”....
Sounds like the teacher is the one who should be suspended.
We're getting to the point of no return with the queers. They were kept underground for a long, long time for a reason.
America was asleep in the 60s and 70s when all of this started to bloom. There should have been a fierce backlash back then but there wasn't except for a few isolated efforts, and Lord how they were mocked by the media.
Nothing makes me more I’ll to my stomach than the thought of 2 men kissing. Gag!
[ I got sent out of class for saying Abortion was wrong. ]
How dare you try to impose your absolute morality onto others, don’t you know you are supposed to use the “wheel of relative morality”.
In the cannibal village the cannibal that only eats half of someone is considered “good”.
The schools ought to be forced to be neutral under the first amendment. The schools can restrict free speech to some extent. As can governments as to time, place, and manner. But given this action, the same school would need to be content neutral. That is, if they prevent a student from saying “Homosexuality is wrong.” They would also have to prevent another student from saying “Homosexuality rocks.” In other words, they would have to forbid discussion of the subject. Obviously, the public schools don’t want that result because they are busy celebrating homosexuality.
The leftists who run society now might be in for a surprise when the traditional white middle class culture decides that the legal system no longer serves their interests.
Not to mention antiChristian bigots.
There is no freedom of speech or thought in Marxism. There is only one way to think-—it is always the Big Lie because the whole ideology is a fraud and can’t be defended by science or history. (that is why they destroy all knowledge of history except their version—evil Capitalists, etc.
The Prussian school system was created by leftists who want to mold and shape the “plastic” minds of children. They have to start them young with lies—like two men can make a “marriage” and do horrific, destructive things with their bodies and you HAVE to respect their degeneracy and lust.
This, of course, destroys Christian ethics (and Aristotle’s) (all of Western Civ’s and the Patriarchy and the natural family.
Marxists want all men and women to be interchangeable.....egalitarianism with all maternal instincts killed so children belong to the state to mold and shape into little marxist useful idiots. No loyalty or connection to others—just the state. They make sex meaningless because intimate sex is something which can profoundly unite the sexes in a flourishing biological way. Takes meaning away from the state and gives them a base for subversive ideas. All communist states create a society with NO TRUST—none...not even for family members...they create snitch programs like zero.
Teaching homosexuality is “good” is a lie and teaching immorality to children-—there is no Right and Wrong and certainly NO God. If anal sex can be good, then what the h*ll can be considered “bad”? Then again....there is no logic or truth in Marxist ideology.
That poor kid is now facing a real dilemma. I surfed over to the website of the school's foreign languages department, and French and Spanish are the only other foreign languages being offered. He could switch to one of those or risk having his German teacher give him a bad grade out of spite.
“The teacher had a picture of 2 men kissing on the wall in his German class. Whats up with that?
Maybe it was the lesson on Siegfried and Roy.
Actually, there was a backlash which culminated in the presidential election of 1972, widely seen at the time as a repudiation of the '60's counterculture. However, the radicals wormed their way into the schools, the judiciary, and other institutions where the public couldn't vote them out.
Would you prefer not to be informed of previous duplicate threads, possibly with hundreds of posts attached?
The teacher had a picture of 2 men kissing on the wall in his German class.
If that is true, then I suspect teacher is teaching in a high school with the intention of recruiting.
Best to wear some leather gloves over Latex... that teacher sounds like a butt pirate.
The teacher and the principal both should be tarred and featthered and run out of town.
It started "blooming" much earlier. By 1975 it was unstoppable.
There should have been a fierce backlash back then but there wasn't except for a few isolated efforts, and Lord how they were mocked by the media.
I'm reminded of Anita Bryant. The queers and media destroyed her.
Yes, this is nothing more then persecution.
I've seen it spelled your way seven times in the last two days on FR News.
I know, I know Flame On.
I am not the spelling police. I saw it spelled twice this way in the same post.
This is not from me but from my HS english teacher, Dr. Louella Parsons. She is a ghost and will not go away.
HItler finds out Himmler is gay...
