Church cancels service for gay war vet

And these people call themselves Christians.

It's amazing. The same issue is going on in the Hononegah school district over the establishment of a gay-lesbian organization for students. These are the same churches that used the Bible as a basis for declaring that blacks were inferior to whites and slavery was just a way of taking care of them. They felt that God was on their side in the Civil War.

You're right, of course. By the way, the organization proposed at Hononegah is the Gay/Straight Alliance, which, as the name implies, is open to everyone. And it's going to happen. Under the Equal Access Act of 1984, schools can't allow certain groups and not others. The ACLU has a good record of winning court challenges to efforts at barring GSA groups. A suit is likely to be filed against Hononegah.
