View Diary: Georgia gives tax support to schools that expel kids for being gay or not hating gays enough (73 comments)

  •  There is nothing "Christian" about hating gays. (6+ / 0-)

    I suppose any private school can have any policies they want to have, but the idea that tax dollars go to support this bigotry is very disturbing.

    Sometimes I think parts of the South are just hell-bent on continuously being on the wrong side of history. There are plenty of LGBT folks in the South--Atlanta especially. I would hope that the LGBT communities in Georgia are taking what action they can take.

      who send kids to these schools or work for them, KNOWING that their own views or persons are not compatible with the philosophy and that they could be fired or dismissed at any point. Why set yourself up for that?

      I see what you did there.

    •  while it is not exactly biblical (0+ / 0-)

      it is a good thing to remember even the Devil can quote Scripture.
      The sexual underground in Atlanta is something the rest of the state wants to know nothing about (except when officials and pols need a little time to blow off steam and then you would be surprised to see whom you will see in the clubs)

        It's Shakespeare. Merchant of Venice Act 1 Scene 3.

        If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!

        •  thank you; I should have known that (0+ / 0-)

          Shylock is one of his most fleshed out and human of characters.

          I think it is hooked onto Scripture as a reference to the Temptation in the Wilderness where Satan used various laws to tempt Jesus into sin
