    So much for the Western World being more tolerant… She has absolute right to sue. If we are all ‘God’s children’, then why does that love not extend to gay, lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals and more?

      > So much for the Western World being more tolerant

      It is more tolerant. This week, Iran hanged three men for being gay.

      1. Iran is not part of the western world. They are a primitive, backward people held together by Islam and the terrible sharia laws that amount to control and domination, two Satanic characteristics. Any person, organisation or authority that does not follow the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ, namely the school in question, is anti-Christ and therefore plays into the hands of Satan and his minions.

        1. Wildseas wrote
          “Any person, organisation or authority that does not follow the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ, namely the school in question, is anti-Christ and therefore plays into the hands of Satan and his minions.”
          .
          Really Wildseas !!! . . . with an attitude like that , how do you manage to function in everday life?

        2. Wildseas should rephrase that… I’m certain that is not what he meant.

          I think he meant that the school in question is NOT following the teaching of Jesus (by dispelling a gay student) and that the school is therefore playing into the hands of Stan.

        3. Please read about Ajax operation and how Brits destroyed Iranian democracy in 60s and how then Iranian regime employed religion as the ultimate weapon. Sadly.

        We may be more tolerant, but not as much as we feign to be.

        1. de Villiers 11 Sep 2011, 8:29am

          In legal terms in the UK at least, gay individuals have substantial if not total equality. There are no restrictions on holding private property, entering into civil partnerships, adopting children, becoming a police officer, lawyer, doctor, teacher, politician etc. There is equality under law in the courts, many of which have upheld the rights of gay people and non-discrimination. Many large private companies have diversity programmes.

          We are as tolerant, largely, as we proclaim.

        You make a valid point de Villiers but I think the fact the Western World is supposed to be more tolerant we should be better by leading by example.

        Iran is disgusting for doing what it does to the LGBT community and the fact they blame religion for their own hatred shouws them up for their complete lack of humanity. We have to tackle these despicable countries but we also have to deal with the hatred that exists in the Western world that the likes of people like Keith wish to encourage harm and division.

      God loves us all. It is sad that these bigots and homophobia people are too blind to see that.

      1. God does not love homosexualiy, child abuse paedophilia or bestiality as they are all condemned in the bible. he loves people but despises these acts and will judge those unwilling to live by his standards, just as he did in the days of Noah and Sodom.
        Jude verse 7 explains it

        1. Jock S. Trap 10 Sep 2011, 8:43am

          Stop blaming ‘God’ for you own hate and discrimination.

          It is only you that hates by your own choosing. Stop making excuses for it.

        2. A recent scientific study concluded that man made god in his image…
          A test group of believers were asked what they imagined god’s opinion on a list of divisive political issues was and it invariably correlated with their own. The bible’s no help as it contradicts itself about 20 times a chapter, leaving it wide open to cherry-picking interpretations.

          1. “If cattle and horses had lions had hands and could paint and make works of art with their hands just like people do, horses would depict the gods as horses and cattle would as cattle… ”

            Here! Here! Flapjack.

          4. Divine decrees segue neatly onto this philosophical problem – the Euthyphro Dilemma http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euthyphro_Dilemma

          5. Is the name on that comic dick hater cos it did look like that lol

        3. What a twat!

    3. Jock S. Trap 10 Sep 2011, 8:41am

      Totally agree. Sadly these people need to learn that you cannot exclude just because of bigotted opinions.

      These are still young, vunerable people and nobody esp those that educate has the right to be so damnright discriminating.

      It seems the biggest challenge to teach isn’t towards the students…

  2. Imagine if a school with no religious affiliation had asked a Christian to leave.This story would be more widely publicised if that were the case.

    1. Jock S. Trap 10 Sep 2011, 8:48am

      Exactly. We wouldn’t hear the last of it.

  3. It’s awful, and I’ll bet a pound to a penny she’ll be much better off at the new school. But if she can sue them, I hope she takes them to the cleaners.

  4. I find it disturbing that teachers are asking students such personal questions anyway. What gives them the right to do that?

    1. Jock S. Trap 10 Sep 2011, 8:50am

      Agreed. It seems to be well above their call of duty to ask for such personal detail clearly for the purpose of exclusion. Trouble is they are so bigotted they don’t see the damage they do to such young people.

      Then they wonder why they get no respect.

    2. They should ask those questions only if their intention is to be more vigilant in protecting LGBT students. Then it would make all the sense. For institutionalized bullying not of course.

      1. Even then there’s no need to ask intrusive questions, myself. Some children are bullied because they’re thought to be gay not because they actually are. It’s the bullying that needs to be stopped for that child, and you don’t need to know their sexuality to do that, and nor would I ever ask unless they volunteered it. It’s unnecessary and intrusive.

        As for preventing bullying of LGBT students, then there should be a pre-emptive education programme, which includes that amongst other forms of bullying. Again,. there is no need whatsoever to ask any student about their sexuality while delivering such a programme. It’s personal, it’s rude – and it’s utterly unnecessary. I still can’t get over the fact that teachers at this school did that. It’s unprofessional and downright creepy.

      2. No, they don’t need to ask those questions at all. It doesn’t matter if the person being bullied is gay or not – it’s the fact that they’re being bullied. There is absolutely no need to ask personal and intrusive questions even if a student is being bullied. The teachers’ behaviour in this case is unprofessional and, frankly, creepy.

  5. Don Harrison 9 Sep 2011, 10:32pm

    Jesus loved everybody, including the Sinners too.

    1. But who are the sinners? And why should anyone accept the label of ‘sinner’ as part of the package of being ‘loved’?
      It’s all very manipulative.

      1. Jock S. Trap 10 Sep 2011, 2:30pm

        It is Riondo. It is divisive and damaging too.

  6. One more reason I wipe my arse with pages from a bible..

    1. Paddyswurds 10 Sep 2011, 8:01am

      When i stay at a Hotel I always replace the toilet paper with the provided Gideons bible. Helpfully the printers always use a paper that is useful for this purpose.

      1. I am surprised that you bother to wipe. Don’t the gay brigade prefer to lick each others bottoms clean?

        1. Jock S. Trap 10 Sep 2011, 8:52am

          Sick pervert!

          Adding nothing again, what a surprise.

        2. Is that how your mother cleaned your behind when you were small, Keith?

          The rest of used nappies. We’re weren’t poor like your poor old momma, god rest her soul.

    2. Staircase2 13 Sep 2011, 3:25am

      Youre missing the point – this is NOT about the Bible – its about a bigoted bunch of nobrains who are USING the Bible to justify their bigotry…

  7. Lucky break! Why have to hang around with a bunch of religious bigots?

  8. This is a shame. Another example of the “good Christians.” If there is a God Im sure he loves and accepts everyone.

    1. Why? If he exists at all why should he meet your or anybody else’s expectations?

  9. The Christian church is no longer the leader of peace and love today, they have joined with Satan and are now the leaders of hate and destruction.

  10. So where is ANONYMOUS to protest against things like this and prop 8 etc.?
    ANONYMOUS are Christians who are just hiding behind mask to make people think they are not Christians but they are Christians, the new KKK Christians. The Catholics and Mormons and Evangelical Christians are pouring millions all the time now into stopping gay marriage and “the gay agenda”, and ANONYMOUS is no where to be found. That is because they are Christians who really want to stop gays.

  11. brainwashed christians say no more mental ill jesus freaks go see a doctor

  12. Jock S. Trap 10 Sep 2011, 8:39am

    Yet again religion shows itself to be the most hateful, discriminating of communities.

    The worst thing is they never see the damage they do to people so young.

    Their ignorance will blind them in their passage of bigotry that in the end will do them No favours.

    These Bigots must grow to learn that with their actions come consequences. They cannot act all surprised when society turns against them in the progression of the decent of humanity.

    They can only project so far…

    1. Staircase2 13 Sep 2011, 3:26am

      Religion isnt a ‘community’…

      1. Jock S. Trap 14 Sep 2011, 9:30am

        Actually a ‘community’ is a group of people sharing things such as religion, race, sexuality, profession etc.

        So just as you have the Black community, White community, you also have the Gay community and Christian/Muslim/Hindu/Sikh etc etc etc

  13. At least your so-called Christian schools are privately funded. Here in Australia, large amounts of our taxpayers money are used to fund these places of bigotry. We also pay for so-called `chaplains’ to go into our state schools for counselling. You can imagine what sort of message they give to some young kid who thinks they might be gay!

  14. Gay Daily Mail Reader 11 Sep 2011, 8:36pm

    Perhaps the best thing any government can do is to exclude religion from ALL mainstream schools. Any religious schooling should be confined to the weekends or outside the 9am – 4pm school day allowing children to concentrate on the important things like the 3 R’s and history (so we don’t repeat the mistakes of the past).

    1. Jock S. Trap 12 Sep 2011, 8:15am

      Totally agree, though I would say it should be banned until they are old enough to make up their own decision and whether to have a faith, Make the material available but for choose not to be falsed on to.

  15. Miguel Sanchez 12 Sep 2011, 2:12pm

    I hope she sues the pants off of them.

    If I had been that girl when asked about my sexuality I’d have told them “noneya” and when asked that it meant I’d have said “NONEYA DAMN BUSINESS” and then walked out of the room.

  16. ‘allegedly asked’ no actual evidence.
    Again another lot of millitants jumping on the band waggon

  17. Staircase2 13 Sep 2011, 3:23am

    Bloody idiots – what is the world coming to?

    I like the sound of the Coach – she sounds like the kind of person who should take over as Head when the current principle is sacked for being an IDIOT!

  18. haji muhammad 13 Sep 2011, 5:35am

    really…..?? mayb she’s better off without the affliation to THAT so called Christian school…blasttttt…..
