[On "No Name-Calling Week" in public schools]

"Is respect for Christians part of these 'no-naming-calling' lessons?" asked Linda Harvey, head of Mission America. "Or does this effort in reality create more division by labeling and stereotyping objections to homosexuality?"

[....]
Mission America's Harvey, however, insists it's not hate that is behind opposition to homosexuality.

"There is in fact, grave concern for these kids, lots of prayers, etc.," she wrote.

The only hate around, Harvey said, is homosexuality itself.

"It hates the natural human body and spirit, and opposes truth at every level. It fights gender integrity as marvelously designed by God. It 'uglifies' a person, preventing the full blossom of natural beauty as a young male or female. It is a dead-end affection, fruitless, never creating new life," she said.

"All who enter it will be plagued by troubled spirits, anxious thoughts, unsatisfied desires, and insecurity, including separation from God and hostility and suspicion toward those who try to warn them," she said. "It is poison in any human life and it is poison in schools."

[....]
"'Gay' student clubs only add fuel," she said, "by dwelling on supposed discrimination while urging entry into the behavior. The enemy? Traditionalists – students, teachers, parents – who know how harmful homosexuality is."

She said bullying students who are acting out homosexually cannot be excused.

"But the solution is not to endorse homosexuality. Instead, we need to get counseling for these troubled kids to help end their self-destructive behavior, at the same time schools should consistently punish all uncivil and unkind treatment by bullies."

Harvey said such programs "assume that homosexuality as a behavior is something worthy of respect and defense, and that it's harmless. It's not. Let's get it out of kids' lives."

I think this sums up the garbled gibberish pretty well.

Homosexuality is not a sentient entity and does not "do" anything except exist.

Let's get it out of kids' lives.

Change that to "Let's get out of kids' lives."

Seriously, schools try to find ways to get kids to stop calling each other names, and people have to make it political? It's not political. It's common decency. That's all we're shooting for as teachers. My kids usually are calling each other "stupid" or "retard" or "moron" or "douchebag" or calling straight kids gay. If they think no teachers are listening, they like "fucktard" lately.

It's so not political. And if Christians are going to object to schools stopping name calling, then they should stop calling themselves Christians. They love that "What would Jesus do?" thing so much. Well, I'm pretty sure that Jesus wouldn't call his classmate a "fucktard".

Homosexuality is neither "deviant", nor is it "immoral" -- it is simply a variation on a theme, and quite natural.

When Christ-tards go about calling homosexuals "evil", "unnatural", "sinners", and other hateful things, it DOES stem from a hatred of all that does not conform to their narrow world-view. Christianity itself is based in HATE and FEAR, and strives to instill these things in its followers. Christianity should, therefore, be considered a HATE CRIME.

Besides, it's just rude to call people things like "homo", "fag", "queer", "gay", "dyke"...

I was just so amazed when I saw all this. I know it's long, but it struck me what some LGBT kids today are up against.

Shorter Linda Harvey: "Let's give lip service to the idea of kids not bullying each other, then bully the LGBT kids ourselves."

My son is a junior in high school and they have a day called "Names" where kids can get up and let everyone know the names they are being called and how it effects them.

My son is a typical 17 yr old, but he was quite moved when he came home and told me how kids got up and were crying. Not just the gay and lesbians kids, the overweight kids were just as damaged as well. They are shocked that some of the kids were ready to kill themselves because they were harassed so much. People are truly cruel.

I hope I'm not just saying this because it's my kid, but I think we have taught him not to name call, etc and I really don't think he does because he has a diverse group of friends.

But I think it's a good program and a wake up call for the kids.

Mission America's Harvey, however, insists it's not hate that is behind opposition to niggerdom.

"There is in fact, grave concern for these kids, lots of prayers, etc.," she wrote.

"It hates the natural human body and spirit, and opposes truth at every level. It fights purity as marvelously designed by God. It 'uglifies' a person, preventing the full blossom of natural beauty as a young white male or white female. It is a dead-end affection, too mixed up, never creating pure life," she said.

"'POC for equality' student clubs only add fuel," she said, "by dwelling on supposed discrimination while urging entry into the behavior. The enemy? Traditionalists – students, teachers, parents – who know how harmful interracial couples are."

It's not only about homosexuality! It's supposed to stop kids calling each other names, no matter what the name! "Douchebag" "Faggot" "Fucktard" "Asshole" "Motherfucker" "Lardass"... all of these names are harmful.

Why do these people make everything about homosexuality?

"Respect for Christians" means giving them full rein to persecute whomever they choose.

It 'uglifies' a person, preventing the full blossom of natural beauty as a young male or female.

Translation: The gays are stealing all my dating options.

@Ozzie

That sounds like a great idea, more so I think than blanket banning certain 'names'. The trouble is often not the words themselves but the aggressive intent behind them. Some words are considered hateful because of the history built up behind them so sometimes we get so concerned with banning these we miss the fact that kids will just make up new names or words to insult people - it doesn't focus on the underlying issue.

However, showing kids that their name calling and teasing can do as much harm as if they're actively punched someone (and social aggression is very harmful) will hopefully at least stop those who may not realise the consequences of their actions.
