16. An Open Letter to one Miss Diana Medley...


A good read -- for one 'Christian' Diana Medley of Sullivan, Indiana

http://jpatrickredmond.tumblr.com/post/42859468371/an-open-letter-to-diana-medley-of-sullivan-indiana

excerpt:

...you share responsibility for the deaths of LGBT teens everywhere thatíve been beaten, committed suicide, or were murdered because of hate. There is only one choice here and it is yours. With your words and actions you now have chosen to wear their blood on your hands.

Yes, Ms. Medley, your purpose is anti-Christ.

2. You can just feel Christ's love in those people

Anyway, if you're biggest concern at the prom is that the gays might be there, then that must say something about your own sexual insecurities.

22. Well, she wasn't born an evil asshole. I believe it's a choice she's made.

I wonder what the Good Lord must think of her choice.

4. OMG

How can people think this way? What will help them understand? What gets through to them?

I hope she understands that if her special needs kids have a place and purpose in this life that everyone who is different does.


The ignorance makes me sad.

8. Remember Archie Bunker?

Okay, I'm old.

I recall once Archie needed blood and told the nurse to make sure he didn't get any of the "wrong" color blood.

This teacher needs to see herself in that light.

Does she tell the hospital to make sure 'her' family doesn't get any of that "gay" blood if needed?

I'm gettin' too old for this shit!

9. Well, it certainly appears that she has a purpose.

Her life is spent tearing down other precious people. She must be so proud.

10. "LGBT people have no purpose"????????

....their purpose is to have fun just like all the other kids. This reminds me of the movie "Footloose." I say have 2 proms. One religious. And one non-religious. Then stand back and see which one the kids decide to go to. No, scratch that. Isn't it the Junior Class that sponsors the Prom for the Seniors? Have the Junior &/or the Senior class take a silent ballot vote. Majority wins and nobody whines after the vote. Everybody abides or just doesn't go to the prom. And tell the teacher to butt out.

11. Pity this woman's husband....

She's no doubt the type who believes sex is 'that dirty thing you do to have babies' and once you hit your goal, THAT'S IT. No more nookie.

13. Sigh

Some adults are past hope. But I've gotten to the point where I believe people who apply to work with children should be asked their position on gay rights in an intensive interview process. The kids in the clip were the saddest - misguided and brainwashed already by homophobic adults.

15. She is the face of ignorance and hate.

I hope the LGBT students show up anyway to the prom with their dates and fight the hateful discrimination they're being subjected to.

24. Aren't proms for the students and not the teachers?

she's had her prom.... it's now time for her to step aside and let the teens have theirs.

And it doesn't matter what she thinks who has a purpose. Special ed teachers who think like she does have no purpose--how's that?

26. Not just a teacher, but a *special education* teacher

whom one would imagine would be sensitive about kids who are different and whom would advocate for a "purpose" for them in society.

in Nazi Germany. You start with the LGBT and what is to stop them from going after special needs children next?
