Holy Hypocrisy!

I'm continually amazed how religious conservatives can be advocating "small government" one minute and the next are chomping at the bit to get involved in people's personal lives.

There are some good points made in the comment section after the article. What on earth could spawn this sort of legislation besides fear?

Fear and the ignorant notion that homosexuality is a choice.

For the record, I think that is a foolish law.

It doesn't matter that a person is gay; everyone should be treated with respect and dignity regardless.

It is not the school's place to be "outing" a child to the parents. Besides, if a parent is even peripherally engaged with his child, I am sure that Mom and Dad already know if their child might have gay tendencies.
