Radio hosts should put their brain in gear before putting their mouths in motion. Janet Mefferd is a Christian radio host who thinks that everyone has a right to an opinion, even a bigot. The host of The Janet Mefferd Show
called the US public school system “morally bankrupt”, and went on to say that Christians should remove their children from public schools and “let them do their thing.”
It is save to assume that them refers to the US public school system, not “the children” because the children have already done “their thing.”
What appears to be a small group of Sullivan High School students and their parents want gay students banned from attending the school prom. The group is small but determined and have the support of a few local pastors and of course, Mefferd, who says,
“Everything is so upside down in our society now and right and wrong have completely switched where what is really wrong is to say you shouldn’t have two boys allowed to go to the high school prom.”
Why not? It’s obvious, according to Mefferd:
some Christians would not want to see gay couples, and asked why gay rights should “trump” the rights of Christians not to have to.
According to pinknews.co.uk, the school is “receiving international attention.” That’s not surprising; the sane world laughs when homophobes ask for their rights and for permission to be bigots. I have a suggestion for these homophobic students: put on your fancy suits and expensive prom dresses and congregate at the local gravel pit. Let the rest of your classmates enjoy their prom in peace.
