'No gays allowed' prom idea backfires on organizers' and other Tuesday midday news briefs

'Gay-free' prom idea backfires on supporters in Indiana town - MSNBC is now saying that idea of a "traditional" prom with no gays allowed has backfired on the organizers with the school and the church where they met coming out against their idea. I can remember a day when they would have been widely applauded. I do love change.

So much for THAT French Revolution the organization was pushing. At least Brian Brown got a free trip to France.

On the Indiana prom story. I live in the state. The notion of a school not being inclusive isn't a stretch at all. Its just that it's not likely to be school sanctioned. Like the story about the boy who brought a tazor. They won't overtly go after or exclude. They'll just blame the victome saying, "well, you shouldn't have been so different." I know first hand. I was bullied and molested for being LD and suspected of being gay.
