Suicide attempts belie something much deeper than sexual experimentation. Please don't trivialize such a serious matter just to promote your own selfish agenda.

Everything is getting worse all the time and there's nothing we can do about it. We get it, no need to make up bullshit stories to try and get your doom-and-gloom point across.
Also, I wouldn't consider homophobia to be a "bold move"
5/26/2009 7:55:00 PM
Yeah, it says he's a homophobic bigot who let his religion get in the way of his job. I'm glad he resigned, rather than start preaching where he had no business preaching.

Bisexuality is NOT a fad!
5/26/2009 8:16:44 PM
This isn't really a fundamentalist statement. Now it's like someone is making a mountain out of a molehill... seriously...
5/26/2009 8:16:56 PM
I'm reasonably sure that the majority of suicide attempts by gay, lesbian, and bisexual teenagers stems from the hatred coming from the bible thumpers....

If the guy was really concerned about the kids, maybe he should've stayed and tried to HELP THE ONES THAT WERE SUICIDAL instead of leaving out of his personal disgust. Yes, this says a lot about the man, it says he's a massive dick who doesn't give a shit about children if they're not pandering to his ideology. What a fucking douche.
5/26/2009 8:56:33 PM
And I bet the vacant position was quickly filled because the world doesn't really give a shit if you quit a job cuz of the gheys. There are many people out in the workforce willing to take the jobs you snotty high horse bastards quit.

"You know, I was out doing something I found meaningful the other day... "
Yeah, probably handing out homophobic tracts.
"I came across a gentlemen and we briefly chatted."
Imagine someone NOT wanting to have a lengthy conversation with YOU. The nerve.
"He used to be a high school teacher--something he found purpose and meaning in doing--but he resigned his position. He quit on principle. The school in which he taught pushed the same kind of agenda that this school in Alameda is trying to push on Kindergartners."
For the gazillionth time, teaching TOLERANCE is not an agenda. It's the fucking golden rule you cunt, one of the handful of insightful, non-creepy things in that stupid book of yours.
"He described to me the aftermath... a bunch of confused teenagers who wore their bi-sexuality like clothes--as if it were a fashion accessory that came and went in or out of season. It wasn't about being homosexual or being straight... the lines were blurred between the two. Sexual orientation was all a fad."
"The most troubling was the ones who were most hurt by this confusion. This was evident by the suicide attempts--some successful, some not."
Bullshit again, but for the sake of argument it would probably have beeen because of this man and students who thought like him and harassed their peers.
"In all good conscious, this man could not stay... so he took the bold move and resigned. I should say--that in a city with a 12% unemployment rate... that says a lot for this man."
Like Judge Smails said in Caddy Shack: "Danny, the world needs ditch diggers too, you know."

Teenagers have been going through bisexual phases for years. The only difference now is that it's socially acceptable to be open about it.
High suicide rates amongst homosexuals are caused by people like you making life difficult for them, not by the sexual orientation itself.
5/26/2009 9:01:39 PM
No matter his wrongheaded beliefs, the man did stand up for his.
He got out of the way of the 21st Century. That's something. At least, there'd be less confused teenagers at his former high school.

I have the privilege to know a shit load of gay and bi people. when you enter an atmosphere where your sexual preferences are open and accepted, one very huge part of the tension between people in social interaction simply vanishes. it's very liberating. I've been in a room where the very notion of getting hung up on sexuality seemed laughable.
5/26/2009 9:24:07 PM
I vaguely remember reading something in the babble about lying. It was like a... a commandment or something. I think it was something like "Thou shalt not bear false witness". Perhaps you should practice that someday eh?
5/26/2009 9:43:30 PM
Funny how people who despise homosexuals always seem to know tons of unhappy ones.
5/26/2009 9:46:53 PM
Lying for the anti-homosexual Jebus agenda?
5/26/2009 10:37:25 PM
Or maybe the kids attempted suicide because of assholes like you that keep going on about how they're "unnatural" and "evil"...?
5/26/2009 10:46:03 PM
If only we could stop those awful queers from being accepted they wouldn't be committing suicide. ...Wait!
5/26/2009 10:58:13 PM
Kids aren't killing themselves over a fad, dumb shit. The ones who mean it are the ones who take it that seriously. (Which is why I don't believe those poor anti-gay-bullied suicides were straight kids, either.)
5/26/2009 11:01:32 PM
I would be quite surprised if a homophobic teacher actually "had the courage of his convictions" and left. In my experience they stay to take their hatred out on children instead of having the decency to get another job--because they believe they're in the right why should they be inconvenienced? If that's really why he left, I have to say I appreciate it! (It's more likely he was fired for bigotry and is lying he left to look like a "hero" to you lot.)
5/26/2009 11:12:31 PM
There's a lot of information that the teacher or Lainy68 is leaving out.
5/26/2009 11:14:24 PM
This bone head sounds so out of touch he could be talking about Goths for all we (or he) know(s)....
5/26/2009 11:19:44 PM
You know, I was out doing something I found meaningful the other day...
Making a trip to 7-11 to buy dental floss?
In all good conscious, this man could not stay... so he took the bold move and resigned. I should say--that in a city with a 12% unemployment rate... that says a lot for this man.
Yes, yes it does, firstly that he is stupid, secondly that he is a quitter who gave up on trying to do any good and ran away. Oh but thats right, we shouldn't blame him because he wasn't allowed to do everything his own way.
Frankly I don't really know why I'm bothering since this whole story reeks of lieing for jesus. Something you folks seem to do pretty regularly.
Oh and one more thing...
I came across a gentlemen and we briefly chatted
Filthy whore! True christian women don't chat-up strange men! (j/k)

If being gay/bi had anything to do with their suicide attempts, it wasn't because they were sexually confused. It was because of HATEFUL ASSHOLES LIKE YOU who won't stop telling them how bad and how wrong it is to be anything other than straight. Teenagers have low self esteem as it is, they don't need your kind of bullshit piled on top. It's not enough that school can be hell for a straight kid for you, oh no, you gotta tell them that they're sick and they disappoint your douchebag of a god for being who they fucking are. Go die in a fucking fire, just, die.
5/27/2009 12:20:29 AM
This was evident by the suicide attempts--some successful, some not
Uh...if the suicide attempts were successful, wouldn't they cease being 'attempts.' *confused by RR logic*

It's taken me a long time to understand my bisexuality, and I've finally brought it down to it's simplest level. It's not a matter of being "greedy", not being choosy enough, or screwing anything that moves, it's a matter of being attracted to a person based on their soul and personality, not what's in their pants.
