Attack on 1st Amendment and Religion – Texas School Punishes Boy for Opposing Homosexuality

I recently wrote an article about the war that is raging against religion in America. From crosses being banned at historical memorials to the government banning prayers at funeral services of fallen soldiers, there is literally an all out war against religion. It is unconstitutional and goes against everything that America was founded on. Even the founding fathers openly practiced and encouraged religion expression in America.
Two hundred years after the founding fathers practiced religion, it is a completely different story. The freedom to practice religion in America is being scaled back to the point that there is an all-out attack on even personal religious beliefs.
Just yesterday, Fox News reported that a student in a Fort Worth ISD school had been punished and kicked out of school simply because he is a Christian and believes that homosexuality is wrong.
This Student, Dakota Ary, is an honor student at Western Hills High School. His 9th grade German teacher was talking about homosexuality for some reason in the German class. That is when Dakota Ary mentioned to his friend sitting next to him that he is a Christian and believes that homosexuality is wrong. The teacher overheard this and got very angry and started yelling.
First of all, why is this German teacher talking about homosexuality in class? This teacher has a history of talking about homosexuality to students and even posted a picture of two guys kissing on the wall in the class room. This teacher is the one who should be sent home, not the student!
This student has every constitutional right to have a personal and religious belief against homosexuality. He even has the right to express his belief to a classmate, especially during a class discussion about homosexuality. This student was not picking on anyone and was not saying anything in a hateful manner. The kid even has homosexual friends. Dakota Ary just believes that homosexuality is wrong and he has the right to express that belief just as a homosexual has the right to be homosexual if he/she wants.
This reminds me of the story I wrote earlier this year about a teacher at Lumberton High School in Texas who chastised her 6th grade students for watching Fox News instead of CNN. It is all just silly and it is a part of a greater issue that is the war against Conservative, Christian beliefs. Schools are part of the battleground because liberals know that they can have a big impact on the thoughts and beliefs of their students.
Even President Obama has appointed a homosexual activist to a top post in the Department of Education. Kevin Jennings will oversee “safety” in schools. Maybe Jennings should try teaching students that homosexual sex is not safe considering that homosexuals make up the majority of new Aids/HIV cases in America each year!
No wonder why homeschooling and voucher programs/charter school have become so popular in America.
