HS Student Body Prez Booted for Proposal Allowing Gay Couples in Homecoming Court
Alpharetta High School Student Body President Rueben Lack was removed from his position after daring to suggest that his LGBT peers be treated equally at homecoming this year.
Unfortunately for Lack, Georgia don’t play dat.
When the student council sponsor told them to stop discussion about the idea, Lack moved to table it so they could return to the idea at a later meeting. He renewed his proposal at the Jan. 26 meeting, and the sponsor again objected and said there would be no vote on it.
Lack says on Feb. 8 the student council sponsors told him he was being removed as student body president.
Now Lack is suing his school for, in our opinion, a pretty clear violation of his First Amendment rights. He’s not suing for monetary damages, he just wants to be reinstated in the office he loves so much!
What justification was there to remove him in the first place?
