commented on Anti-Gay Bigots at High School In Indiana Can't Ban Gay Kids From Prom...
I wanted to try and answer a few questions that have been posted, I am from Sullivan.
The Downtown gym was sold a few years ago, when they built the new school they built a new gym on the same property, Anyone can rent this facility.
The Special Ed. teacher is not employed by Southwest School Corporation, which is the corp. Sullivan High School belongs, however the above mentioned Curt and Tonja Bedwell are employed by Southwest School Corp., they are bus drivers. The school corporation that Mrs. Medley is employed by is Northeast School Corp., and they released a statement to the Sullivan Daily Times that states, she made those statements expressing her First Amendment right, "the views expressed are not the views of Northeast school corporation and/ or the Board of Education."
Again, this is a small group of 35 people whom are terrorizing the kids, They are the minority here. This should be a special time that they all remember with their classmates, as a whole. If this group truly had an issue with LGBT, why are their kids in public school and not some private christian school where they can spend hours a day praying for the gay? You can not pray the gay out of someone! Everyone deserves to love and to be loved. Sullivan County is not as narrow-minded as all of this media attention has implied. There are a select few that are truly showing their asses and the saddest part is their church is claiming to not back them, he just allowed them to use the building for a meeting room. Christianity even in Sullivan isn't as maniac as this group portrays.
