A federal judge has ordered a Missouri school district to unblock its web filters and give students access to sexually explicit material by the middle of March.
A US District Judge issued a preliminary junction against the Camdenton R III School District banning them from using filtering software. The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against the district claiming it was deliberately restricting access to homosexual themed sites, while allowing students to view what it claims are anti-LG BT sites that condemn homosexuality.
In issuing its ruling, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri said the district's custom filtering system "systematically allows access to websites expressing a negative viewpoint toward LGBT individuals by categorizing them as 'religion,' but filters out positive viewpoints toward LGBT issues by categorizing them as 'sexuality.
Joe Ortwerth, executive director of the Missouri Family Policy Council, says, When you consider that there's a federal law on the books that obligates school districts to ensure that their computers do not allow access to materials that might be pornographic for minors, this judge's action -- considering that -- is pretty shocking.
The ACLUs website claims that schools cannot block LGBT sites claiming that to do so is a violation of the First Amendment. Programs that block all LGBT content violate First Amendment rights to free speech, as well as the Equal Access Act, which requires equal access to school resources for all extracurricular clubs, including gay-straight alliances and LGBT support groups.
Among the sites the ACLU says students have a right to view is the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. The site provides a link to It Gets Better which is a program advocating the homosexual lifestyle founded by Dan Savage, a gay sex columnist.
Savage is known for his vulgar and raunchy columns. He was also responsible for bullying Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum by creating a Google bomb that attached a vile sex term to the candidates name.
Savage has engaged in other hateful comments such as saying on Bill Mahers television show, I wish all Republicans were f***ing dead. And has said on HBO that he wanted to rape Santorum.
The ACLU disputes that it is advocating students be allowed to view pornographic material, however, by disabling the filters in order for students to view safe sites sexually explicit sites will be permitted as well.
The Alliance Defense Fund, which filed a friend of the court brief on behalf of the school, noted that the sexuality filter blocks access to over 8,200 websites of which 7,800 would not be blocked by using the adult or porn filters and that many of the 7,800 sites contain sexually explicit materials.
The brief provided examples of specific sites that would not be blocked by the filter that provided access to pornographic images and pictures.
And cheaper than a good rope.
Just another way to destroy western society. Attack it’s
basis in morals and principals. What could be more immoral
and unprincipled than homosexuality other than the liberal
party itself? This judge is probably a perv himself.
It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than that he would cause one of these little ones to stumble.

This is why we need Santorum. Someone who understands the evil that is corrupting this nation.
Every computer in the school would suddenly be down for maintenance if I had my way.
There is no federal authority under the Constitution to dictate what schools in the several states do.
Let alone a perversion such as this....
Good call, FRiend.
There seems to be this great need by the judicial to promote that which is considered evil by Christian teaching.
Looking better & better......: )
Man, you gotta hand it to the hippies. Whomever came up with ‘the plan’ got it right. The weirdos have taken over everything of any importance in the whole country. Media, Government, Education, Judges, everything.
These last 50 years have been a stealth coup by pinkos. They will not win in the end, but they have done an amazing job.
I'm still waiting with anticipation for the inevitable clash between Western Leftist institutionalized debauchery and Islam. Right now, the Leftists are coddling the Muslims, but once they get enough power, they will start forcing their perverted views of the world on them.
The clash will be spectacular.
Real Fathers used to take care of things like this...
(AP) A man who for 12 years served as president of the Virginia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union was sentenced to seven years in prison for downloading what authorities said was some of the "most abhorrent" child pornography they have ever seen.
Civil Disobiedence is one answer. Parents withdrawling kids from school is a good start. A good stout rail wide enough to seat public officals to ride them out of town on in public scorn is another.
It is interesting that this corrupt gay Democrat judge is not named in the article.
Where did the parent’s rights go in all this? Aren’t the school administrators answerable to the parents?
Shut down the school’s internet and appeal.
Oh, and shoot ACLU on sight.
It is already happening in various places in Europe, on that last. It is becoming quite an awakening.
Thanks to the idiot McConnell, we’ll have more lunatic judges like this on the bench FOR LIFE.
Have we had enough yet? Can we call off this game of “be nice to the pervert” and instead send them all where they can get straightened out?
Absolutely F’ing sick.
libby loons like this judge are gonna be the death of this great nation
