I just read an article on Yahoo this morning about a canceled prom in Jackson, Mississippi. It was canceled because a lesbian wanted to take her "date" to the prom in a tuxedo. Being in the Bible belt, the school board wanted to not make others uncomfortable so they didn't want to step on the gals rights soooo..they just canceled the prom.
HOORAY for them for sticking to their guns and not blowing the issue up further.
I do not believe the girls rights were violated at all although I am sure they will try to make it that way. Communities of people do have the right to make rules of what they want or don't want. Communities can say if they want movie theaters, malls or adult bookstores in their city. That is NOT violating anyone's rights in my book. This is not about my opinion towards lesbians and gays. Nope..it is about a communities rights to govern their own community.
Heck...we have speed limits and driving rules too and I am sure some will say that violates their right to drive however they want. WRONG! Civilization needs limits and guidelines as to how any group of people live and interact with another. Come on people...we are not living in the wild west where everyone can have a gun.
If you don't like laws and rules..MOVE! I am sure there is a deserted island out there where you can make your own country and own rules.
Just in case you want to read the article....but if this is a very old post it might not be there.
