LA Senate Comm. Approves Bill Allowing Charter Schools to Refuse Gay Students
State Sen. A.G. Crowe, R-Slidell, said his bill is designed to ensure that executive branch agencies and local governments stop including bans on discrimination against characteristics not listed in state law as a condition for private companies to do business with their agencies.
Yes, yes of course. The bill is designed to ensure discrimination exists in schools in the absolute maximum number of ways possible.
Dennis Lomonaco , from the Louisiana LGBTQ Taskforce weighs in:
“It is a sad day when lawmakers choose to join in on bullying and allow school administrators to discriminate against our children. The right to learn is a basic human right. Our leaders are looking to provide a ‘legal’ road map to allow discrimination. I think that we should take a step back from our selfish views and see the damage that we would cause if we hindered kids from sharing in the diversity of our community. The lesson of acceptance and understating of people who are different is one that a child must learn.”
“It takes all different types of ingredients to make a good gumbo! What good is the gumbo without the sausage?”
All of this of course begs the question, What is worse: a bill preventing gay students from even attending schools or the Don’t Say Gay Bill, which makes it illegal to mention that homosexuality even exists in schools?
