Clown Award: Group wants "no gays allowed" dance
Sullivan, Indiana, is a town of 4200 people in southwest Indiana. There, a group of parents, teens, and even a teacher at Sullivan High School is fighting for a separate "traditional" high school prom that would ban gay students, because they just don't think it's "right" that they should have to - well, they actually weren't very clear about just what the problem is except that "it (I assume they mean being gay or lesbian) is offensive to us."
Among those supporting the plan, hatched at a church meeting on February 10, is Diana Medley, a special education teacher, who not only compared being homosexual to being one of what she called "my special needs kids" but insisted that being homosexual is a deliberate choice and that gays and lesbians have no purpose to their lives.
There is some pushback: A Facebook page called "Support The Sullivan High School Prom For All Students" has appeared and already has over 1,000 likes.
One of the students involved in the plan for a "no homos allowed" dance said "we want to make the public see that we love the homosexuals, but we don't think it's right nor should it be accepted." Yeah, right: "I love you, you abomination in the eyes of god that I can't even stand to share a high school gymnasium with." Funny way to show love.
Then again, what can you expect from a collection of clowns?
