Poway Unified Schools to Students:
Supporting Homosexuality - OK
Supporting Christianity - NO

The Poway Unified School District supported the pro-homosexual "Gay-Straight Alliance" "Day of Silence" event. When one student, Chase Harper, attempted to enter the school wearing a t-shirt which said "Our School Embraced What God Has Condemned," a school administrator told Harper his beliefs were offensive and must "leave his faith in the car." When Harper refused, he was suspended from school.

A federal lawsuit was filed by Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) on behalf of Harper. "This is unconstitutional suppression of speech and an illegal suspension from school," said the ADF attorney Robert Tyler. "In this age of alleged tolerance, such a statement is disappointing, to put it mildly."

School administrator to student: "Leave your faith in the car" - Promotion of homosexual agenda okay; ADF representing religious student suspended for wearing T-shirt with different view

According to Mike Johnson of the Alliance Defense Fund, "Many of the leaders of the homosexual lobbying groups have admitted that they're targeting public schools. That is where they're trying to change society's perception of their activities and their behavior. That's the best place to do it -- to go to the next generation. That's how you change minds and that's how you affect the culture. Sadly, they've had some success there."

Are public schools the next battleground over homosexuality?
