Ready for your feel-good story of the day?
Recently, bigots at the Itawamba County Agricultural High School in Mississippi were faced with a big problem: a gay was planning to show up to prom and convert all the poor innocent hetero kids to gayism with their gay germs!
The school board canceled the prom due to “distractions” after Constance McMillen (that’s not her to the right . . . see Autostraddle.com‘s response to this story) requested permission to wear a tux and bring her girlfriend as her date. The horror! First the board tried banning her from the event, and when the ACLU stood up for her and demanded she be allowed to attend, the board took their ball and ran home.
According to CBS News, “District officials say they hope private citizens will host a prom.”
Well, private citizens have stepped up. In particular, godless heathen citizens! Well done to Todd and Diana Stiefel for donating $20,000 through the American Humanist Association to host a secular, inclusive event.
Too bad we soulless atheists have no morals.
