This ticks me off...

I just received this update from the ACLU from Lori:
1. ARKANSAS SCHOOL PERSECUTES GAY STUDENT
Ok, this is one of those blood-boiling stories.  The ACLU reports that a
junior high school in Jacksonville, Arkansas is persecuting a 14-year-
old kid because he's gay.  According to the ACLU, among the youth's
punishments for being a homo?  "School officials preached their
religious views on homosexuality and forced him to read aloud from the
Bible in clear violation of the establishment clause of the First
Amendment. This was done as punishment after McLaughlin, who is himself
a Christian, disagreed with a teacher for calling him 'abnormal' and
'unnatural.'" 

This kid needs to sue their bigoted asses off.  In the meantime, you can
help by contacting the superintendent and school board on behalf of this
young man.  Be sure to keep your emails angry yet polite.  You can be
sure that the bigots will be contacting the school in droves - let's let
their venom speak for itself.
