Georgia HS Gay Straight Society Could Incite Violence, Parents Claim

Well, if you’re that homophobic and hell-bent on punishing innocent people because you are insecure in your sexual orientation, I guess it could. Geez. I am so sick of stupid people. (Gwinnett Daily):

A parents group is demanding that the Gay Lesbian and Straight Society at Berkmar High School in Gwinnett change its name because the mere mention of the word gay could incite violence at the suburban Atlanta school. “I submit to you the name itself is very sexually explicit, provocative and inflammatory,” the group’s spokesperson Faye Caldwell told the school board.

People have very strong opinions about homosexuality. . . . There could be a confrontation. We must protect the well-being of the students.” The GLSS was recently formed at the school. Last week two opinion pieces on the club were pulled from the student newspaper after principal Kendall Johnson felt they would disturb students during exam time.

The parents group and a handful of other parents and members of First Baptist Church of Lilburn, told the board that schools are not the place to discuss homosexuality. School Board members listened to the complaints but have not publicly responded.
