Texas School Punishes Boy for Opposing Homosexuality
Foxnews.com ^ | Sept. 22, 2011 | Todd Starnes

An honors student in Fort Worth, TX, was sent to the principal’s office and punished for telling a classmate that he believes homosexuality is wrong.

Holly Pope said she was “absolutely stunned” when she received a telephone call from an assistant principal at Western Hills High School informing her that her son, Dakota Ary, had been sent to in-school suspension.

“Dakota is a very well-grounded 14-year-old,” she told Fox News Radio noting that her son is an honors student, plays on the football team and is active in his church youth group. “He’s been in church his whole life and he’s been taught to stand up for what he believes.”

And that’s what got him in trouble.

Dakota was in a German class at the high school when the conversation shifted to religion and homosexuality in Germany. At some point during the conversation, he turned to a friend and said that he was a Christian and “being a homosexual is wrong.”

“It wasn’t directed to anyone except my friend who was sitting behind me,” Dakota told Fox. “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.”

This is what happens. No freedom of speech, thought, association, or religion. More and more, the homsoexuals and those pushing the agenda, will never be satisfied if there is one person speaking against them. We will be silenced, arrested, re-educated and forced into subservience. If we don't fight back.

Who says that homosexuals are not a protected class? Political Correctness is just speech control with a different name.

At least the School had the sense to quickly backtrack on the punishment. The teacher clearly has an agenda.

of course not.

this teacher and the principal that backed him up (sorry for the pun) should be removed

Silly silly conservative... Not all "beliefs" are equal. Some beliefs are "more equal than others." For example, beliefs of liberals and deviants (but I repeat myself) are more equal than those of hard-working, moral, self-controlling conservatives.

Sadly, not satire.

10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Unfortunately, this is already well entrenched in public schools.

Where’s the ACLU with the first amendment in tow. This is a violation of FREE SPEECH. As a federal employee I can’t discuss certain topics in the work place because I’m being paid to work not argue. When my shift is over I can scream at the top of my lungs what I think and feel. So if this kid can’t say he disagrees with homosexuality in school then the homo’s can’t have any input either. That includes displaying their rainbow flag or having a day to recognize them. By the way I want Heterosexual recognition week.

RINOs want a “truce” because they’re social liberals. They just want the pro-vice side to win.

FEH

more effort to hide the teacher’s name, has extended through all of the postings. Looks like the media style book on this , but why? Homosexuals love to “out” people for their hypocrisy ans intimidate by publishing donors’ names to efforts opposing them

I would like to know why they were discussing homosexuality in the classroom in the first place? Who brought up the subject? Here is a puzzle, they want to discuss homosexual topics in the schools but they do not want anyone to criticize homosexuality. If they did not speak about homosexuality in schools, then no body would be talking about it in class. So they must want to discuss homosexuality in the classroom only to promote in while censoring any opposing views. Lawsuit.

How is it the, “conversation shifted to religion and homosexuality in Germany”? The one pushing an agenda was the teacher.
