The Republicans put in a clause, introduced in secret, which is a cop out for anyone who can provide a religious or moral reason for their action.

Apparently to not grant this get-out clause is to act, as Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan, puts it, as a Trojan horse for the homosexual agenda.

The Michigan bills are known as Matts Safe School Law and are named for Matt Epling, an East Lansing gay teenager who committed suicide after being bullied.

Michigan Republicans only agreed to consider an anti-bullying measure for one of the only three US states without them that did not require school districts to report bullying incidents, did not include any provisions for enforcement or teacher training, and did not hold administrators accountable if they fail to act. They wanted no mention of any groups at high risk of bullying, in particular gay students.




Sticking to the 4 paragraph rule... I suggest you go read the rest.



Un.... F#@KING.... Believable.
