That this pandering to intolerance is being done by politicians looking for scapegoats for their failures is not surprising. But it is a great wrong. An even larger offense is that it is being done in the name of God. Show me where Christ said "Love thy fellow man, except for the gay ones." Gay people, too, are made in my God's image. I would never worship a homophobic God.

From Queerunity on Twitter: "Demand that Lesbian Student be Allowed to go to Prom"

Date: 13 March 2010
Subject: Teaching Our Children Hatred


By canceling the senior prom rather than opening it to same-sex couples, you have taught our young people a valuable lesson. You have taught them they can use whatever power and authority they gain as they enter adulthood to practice hatred towards those who are different from them.

Is that the lesson you want these young people to take away from their senior year?

On the other hand, you can choose to teach them that sometimes people in authority make mistakes, own up to their mistakes, and reverse their mistakes. The ball is in your court.

Sincerely,
