Vasaris, the Fuzzy Dragon [userpic]
What would you do?

Snagged from kuchenhexe who snitched it from iczer6

True Story. A religion teacher assigned her class an essay on what makes a good Christian. One student wrote about praying nightly, say no to abortion, banning gay marriage, and donating money. The other student wrote about talking to God and allowing people to enjoy their lives, and supporting gay marriage. The day the teacher was to hand the papers back, she called up the second student and told him she would pray for him when he went to hell. The student asked why would he be going to hell, and why he got an F on his paper. The teacher told him that Catholism is against gay marriage. The student looked at her for a minute, then said aloud, "I'm gay." The teacher kicked him out of class as if he had said fuck or worshiped Satan. A girl in the back of class who had a boyfriend and was obviously straight got up and left too.

If you would leave the classroom, repost this. It doesn't matter if you're straight, bi, or gay. It doesn't matter if you're catholic or not. Everyone is a human being and deserves happiness.


I make no secret of not being Christian, but this touches the heart of some of my beliefs. What makes a good person is talking and listening to the Divine, however it manifests for one. What makes a good person is the willingness to accept the differences as others accept them in us. Everyone has a right to happiness, to love, and hope.

Everyone.

Darnit.

Me, I'd've left the classroom, told my mom, and written the newspaper about the whole thing. (I never was much good at ripping new ones for my teachers.)

I am Catholic, though I do not at the present time attend church.

Yet I support gay rights the same as I support the rights of every other human being to live his/her life as they wish as long as it is not hurting another.

I don't see how being gay is hurting another human being. It's just sex for cripes sake!

Why can't these people who are out there trying to tell others how to live, get off their high horse and live what they preach? Because from what I see many of them are doing nothing to change the real woes of the world.All they do is talk. (See the latest post on my journal about my attempts to get help from the prolifers.)They talk about the sancity of every human life, and the "value of the "straight" faily, but only help when it suits them.

Problem with this scenario is I would have laid into the teacher with lots of choice words. I am not one to let people get away with ignorance.
If I don't at least try to teach what is acceptance of all to those who do not know, I feel I am doing nothing to change the status quo. Just me.
