Expelled teenís parents threaten to kick him out
http://www.advocate.com/html/stories/930/930_barnett.as...

A gay student who was expelled last month from Trinity Christian Academy High School in Dallas for hosting a Web site targeted to GLBT youth is now facing additional problems at home. In an exclusive interview, James Barnett said he may be kicked out of his house by his parents due to the media fallout from the incident.

ďMy parents couldnít believe it,Ē Barnett, 18, recalled in a recent telephone conversation. In an e-mail he added, ďMy parents have worked with me on keeping open My-Boi.com , but my mom doesnít like the fact that Iím gay and doesnít approve of it.Ē



lovely parents

2. Exactly
'You're different - you must be shunned'

I would like to have just one day to play god, kinda like a Bruce Almighty thing, only Rubyduby Almighty would be more of the smite thee kind of all powerful being to stupid, intolerant, okay just Republicans. I'd only smite Republicans. There I admit it.

5. Hey, cut the parents some slack ...

The Ten COmmandments doesn't say parents have to honor or love their kids.

6. This is disgusting.
This kid needs to move to a home in which he will be accepted. We ought to get an organization together to offer homes to these kids.

9. There you go . . . and you wonder *why* the suicide rate is

higher for gay teens than straight teens? Well? Wonder no more.

10. Another example of how a straight couple is better at parenting.
Pathetic, I am sure mom sent the kid to the christian academy in the first place to "fix" his gay personality. You have to get a license to have a dog, but any asshole can be a parent.
