This is a clearcut case of homosexual fascism in the public schools:
In total disregard of his professional responsibilities as a teacher and the constitutional rights of his students, after ordering Daniel to leave the classroom, McDowell asked the remainder of the class whether anyone else did not accept homosexuality. A student raised his hand, and McDowell ordered him out of the classroom as well.
I remember how I would have been as a student. I remember when I was in the 8th grade and a shop teacher of ours ordered a Jehovah's Witness classmate to stand and say the Pledge of Allegiance.
He was standing over the kid with a T-square in his hand and said he was going to paddle the kid with it if the kid didn't follow orders. I stood up and went over and got in the teachers face. I said that the kid didn't have to say the pledge because we have freedom of religion in the US and that if he hit the kid with the T-square, I'd take the thing away from him and beat him with it. Needless to say, he backed off. I had to pay a visit to the principals office, but the principal backed off too because he was a Mormon who knew what it was like to be on the receiving end of religious persecution.
Those were the days long before I converted to Christianity. I know now that threatening the teacher wasn't the right move, but I don't disagree with the view I had then about freedom of religion and conscience. I don't agree with the Jehovah's Witnesses. I didn't then, and I don't now; but that kid was not a bad kid. He and his close Jehovah's Witnesses friend were actually extremely well behaved, much better than I was.
That teacher was way off base and so too was this fascist homosexual or pro-homosexuality economics teacher who told the Christian kid that he had to agree that homosexuality is fine or be thrown out of public school.
Let me tell you that if you agree with that teacher, you're a fascist; and it will come back to haunt you.
Here's cognitive dissonance on it for you though:
Ultimately, this suit seems to have little to do with the student's rights. Rather, Thomas More Law Center is using this opportunity to demand that it be perfectly okay to condemn, ostracize, bully, and harass students for their sexual orientation, the consequences be damned. (Free Speech Suit Takes Aim At Anti-Bullying Policies)
Wow, what a load of crap that is! You'll also notice the part that's left out on purpose because it shows how Nazi-like the teacher was to the second kid who simply raised his hand when asked if he didn't believe homosexuality is fine.
That teacher wants to throw kids out of Howell High School for disagreeing that penises belong up anuses. That teacher, Jay McDowell, thinks it's fine that men ejaculate in each others rectums to satisfied, temporarily, their sexual lusts. Anyone who thinks penises belong in anuses is an idiot. Anyone who doesn't know that they don't belong there is an idiot and has no business teaching children.
Shame on ThinkProgress for putting such illiberal garbage on their website.
The following should appear at the end of every post:
According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":
Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.
Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.
Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.
Political Campaign Intervention
Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.
Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.
Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:
- Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
- Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
- Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
- Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
- Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office
Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:
- The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
- Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
- We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
- When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
- It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
- We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
- We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
- When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
- We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
- It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
