Students from a public high school in Hartford, Connecticut, walked out on a school assembly after realizing that the play they were seeing had a homosexual theme and included a kiss between two boys. The play, entitled Zanna, Dont, is a musical set in a universe where homosexuality is normal behavior, while heterosexuals must remain in the closet with their relationships. According to Baptist Press News, the play, which was produced by a local community theater and included high school and college actors, was performed for the student body at Hartford Public High School, and kids werent given the option ahead of time not to watch it.
Hartford Public High School (pictures, left) is divided into four different academies based on student interests and aptitudes, and the play was performed for students in the Nursing and Law and Government academies. Adam Johnson, principal of the Law and Government school, told the Hartford Courant that he had no second thoughts about compelling the kids to see the salacious play. This is as important of a topic to discuss as anything in math, anything in social studies, he said. Im completely glad that we did it. Similarly, while Nursing Academy principal David Chambers said he had considered sending a letter home allowing students to opt out of the objectionable play, he decided to forgo the courtesy to students and their parents because, he reasoned, as health care workers his students would be exposed to a wide variety of people.
As it happened, students didnt need an opt-out letter to exit the performance. According to the Huffington Post, 30 minutes into the performance, after two male actors shared a brief kiss on the lips on stage, a group of students, most of them male and many of them football players, got up and left the auditorium.
Said Principal Johnson of the disgust of the students who opted out of the performance: There are always circumstances under which the values of the student or their family come into play. Its a balancing act of individual values and the expectations of the school [and] it was interesting, actually, seeing the apprehension.
Even so, he said, when asked beforehand if he wanted to censor the kiss out of the performance for his students, Johnson declared:
[A]bsolutely not. ... I think that were at a time in history where there is tremendous focus on bullying and the way students are treating each other, and how they are treated, in school. ... We have to teach students how to respect and honor each other. [The students] need to learn about the diversity of the world and respecting the rights of all people. [Im] really glad that we did this program.
Added Principal Chambers of the performance and the reaction of those who walked out: Even though its kind of chaotic, kind of wild and crazy, I see it as very successful. Our kids never deal with this, they keep it inside, and thats that nervous energy. Thats why they walked out.
Peter Wolfgang of the Family Institute of Connecticut had a different take on the moral chaos in the Hartford schools, arguing that school officials need more accountability in such instances. In the community in general, were hearing outrage over this, he said. It shows the need for an opt-in law. Right now, parents do have the right to opt their kids out of things like this when they happen in Connecticut, but they dont have the right to opt in. Thats how you wind up with situations like this, where kids are at the mercy of an unprincipled principal.
He added that the political and moral climate in his state was ripe for just such an objectionable display. Our state Supreme Court redefined marriage in our state three years ago by judicial fiat, and we warned at the time that this would lead to attacks on religious liberty, on parental rights. Nonetheless, he added, even were shocked at how true our predictions have turned out to be.
They had to set the play on another planet for it to work. Since no society on earth could survive being led by homosexuals, there is no point to the play.
Interesting. The "normal" segment of society would only last one generation, since they don't procreate.
The principal should be arrested.
Perverts used to lurk in public toilets, waiting for a vulnerable child.
Now they run our public schools.
I keep looking for the asteroid.
Bring back horsewhipping.
I want to punch this guy right in the face. How the hell do YOU know why they walked out, asshat? I personally think it's because they didn't want to BARF in the auditorium.
There can be no respect or honor where there are no standards that define what is respectable and what is honorable.
WGAF? Pass a MILLION more laws telling us what is 'normal', and the gag reflex of TRULY normal citizens will still be tested by your Adam & Steve FAIRY tale.
You get this kind of reaction in a HS when forcing open homosexuality onto students. Notice it was the male football players who walked out? That’s a pretty cohesive group. Imagine what kind of incidents we will be treated to as our military men react negatively?
How can anyone honor two men who use their fecal exhaust pipe as a sex object?
I assume these students will be suspended for being insensitive.
It's not possible. And what's more, men who use their fecal exhaust pipes as sex objects aren't capable of honoring themselves, which is why they want so desperately to co-opt the rest of society into their sick charade.
I've said it before...stay out of my life....stop choosing ME as part of your queer life.
STOP BULLYING HETEROSEXUALS LIKE MYSELF!!!
...Adam Johnson, principal of the Law and Government school, told the Hartford Courant that he had no second thoughts about compelling the kids to see the salacious play.

With such “educators” running schools, is it any wonder that so many young people finish school without obtaining an education?
I just can't. It's too early in the morning to know where to start. I hope it's OK to use substandard math when the district figures his paycheck.
Well, that's not fair.
How about a play set in a universe where homosexuality is normal behavior and heterosexuals are demading laws which punish hate crimes against them, heterosexual marriage, Straight Pride parades, teaching heterosexuality in schools, and forcing homosexuals to attend heterosexual tolerance and awareness classes.
I might attend that play.
Brilliant idea! Someone really should write that play!
still have the bull pic?
