Recently, Bangor Area High School held a week-long Gay-Straight Alliance event in which the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance encouraged students to wear different colored shirts each day to raise awareness of queer issues such as bullying and suicide. During the high school’s televised announcements on the last morning of the event, two students on the broadcast wore Chick-fil-A T-shirts. This resulted in a shit of social media attacks against the two students and eventually led to about 15 students who engaged in the cyberbullying to being suspended the following week.
Anti-Christian Litigation Union (ACLU) Is On The Scene
The result of that is that the ACLU of Pennsylvania is investigating the matter in order to determine if the school can charged with civil rights violations for suspending the students who attacked the two students who dissented against the LGBT event. Mary Catherine Roper, deputy legal director of the organization, described the suspensions as, “pretty harsh punishment.”
Somehow I just don’t think that any sane American could bring themselves to believe that, if the situation were reversed and it was two students wearing rainbow t-shirts who were attacked and bullied, the ACLU would investigate the school for suspending the perpetrators. No, the Anti-Christian Litigation Union (ACLU) doesn’t roll that away…ever.
Of course, the only reason the ACLU isn’t formally described as a hate group is that organization that makes its money by denoting organizations as such, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), is itself a hate group.
