School suspends boy for opposing homosexuality

A Texas school suspended a 14 year old honor student for telling his friend he thought homosexuality is wrong while the German class teacher was teaching about homosexuality in Germany. From the Fox news report....

Dakota was in a German class at the high school when the conversation shifted to religion and homosexuality in Germany. At some point during the conversation, he turned to a friend and said that he was a Christian and “being a homosexual is wrong.”

“It wasn’t directed to anyone except my friend who was sitting behind me,” Dakota told Fox. “I guess [the teacher] heard me. He started yelling. He told me he was going to write me an infraction and send me to the office.”

Dakota was sentenced to one day in-school suspension – and two days of full suspension. His mother was flabbergasted, noting that her son had a spotless record, was an honor student, volunteered at his church and played on the school football team.

Officials at the high school did not return calls for comment. However, the Fort Worth Independent School District issued a statement that read:

“As a matter of course, Fort Worth ISD does not comment on specific employee or student-related issues. Suffice it to say that we are following district policy in our review of the circumstances and any resolution will likewise be in accordance with district policy.”....

....Krause called the incident “mind blowing” and said the teacher had frequently brought homosexuality into ninth grade classroom discussions.

“There has been a history with this teacher in the class regarding homosexual topics,” Krause said. “The teacher had posted a picture of two men kissing on a wall that offended some of the students.”

Krause said the picture was posted on the teacher’s “world wall.”

“He told the students this is happening all over the world and you need to accept the fact that homosexuality is just part of our culture now,” Krause said.

The school district would not comment on why a teacher was discussing homosexuality in a ninth grade German class.

“In German class there should be no talk of being pro-Gay or homosexual topics,” Krause said.

Dakota’s mother said she believes the teacher should apologize.

“He should never have been punished,” Pope said. “He didn’t disrupt the class. He wasn’t threatening. He wasn’t hostile. He made a comment to his friend and the teacher overheard it.”

“My son knows people that are homosexual,” she said. “He’s not saying, ‘I don’t like you.’ He’s saying, ‘I’m a Christian and I believe that being that way is wrong.’”

A teacher forcing their social views on students???? Never!!! It never happens. It never happens. It never happens.

  1. Yeah, but "it's not happening at our school".

    Since we have Bill Frist, Jamie Woodson, Bill Haslam and Arne Duncan on tour together, and we sold our souls for the Race to the Trough money, how long will it take for the complete federalization of TN public schools via the Common Core State Standards? Is TN going to be "common" with California and Massachusetts? When will the states that speak against this indoctrination start to be threatened by Washington like they are on illegal immigration and sexual assault by TSA agents?

    I don't see how taking on the federalized standards for content and curriculum is "narrowing the scope" of the federal government involvement in education as Haslam claimed on stage with Obama.

    Who will be the first David Parker in cuffs because he wanted to opt his son out?
