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.

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.
