School has “separate but equal” prom because gays have “no purpose” in life

UPDATE: Seems separate-but-equal prom is generating some bad publicity for Hate-ville, Indiana.   Students, parents and teachers at Sullivan High School in Sullivan, Indiana are upset that gay couples might come to their prom, and that’s a bad thing.

So they’re planning their own separate-but-equal “traditional prom” where, just like in the olden days, closeted gay and lesbian teens will attend with beards who later can’t understand why their dates refuse to put out.

Ah, tradition.

From a video posted on the MyWabashValley Web site, we hear from Diana Medley, a special education teacher in town who supports the separate-but-equal prom:

REPORTER: You know, the gay person, do you consider them, maybe, they have some sort of purpose in life?

DIANA MEDLEY: I don’t. I personally don’t, I’m sorry.  I just, I don’t understand it.

More from Medley, via the new story at the same link:

Diana Medley, special ed teacher in town who supports separate-but-equal prom, and who doesn't hink gays have "a purpose" in life.

Diana Medley, special ed teacher in town who supports separate-but-equal prom, and who doesn’t think gays have “a purpose” in life.

Diana Medley is a special education teacher in town. She doesn’t believe anyone is born gay.

“I believe that it was life circumstances and they chose to be that way; God created everyone equal,” said Medley.

“Homosexual students come to me with their problems, and I don’t agree with them, but I care about them. It’s the same thing with my special needs kids, I think God puts everyone in our lives for a reason,” said Madley.

Actually, “traditionally” we didn’t let inter-racial couples go to prom either.  So let’s be clear what this is really about.  It’s not about tradition. It’s about hate and bigotry and discrimination and homophobia.

gay-promThough my favorite quote from the video goes to a local pastor  supporting the anti-gay prom movement, Bill Phegley from the Carlisle Church.  The article cleaned up his quote.  But if you watch the video, it’s quite a different quote, and telling. And I quote, verbatim:

“Christians always been prepared for a fight. But Jesus Christ give us armor for the front, not the back, we aren’t runnin’ no more.”

And mind you, this is the way Phegley speaks on camera during a TV interview, which is usually when people speak at their most formal.

I’m not poking fun at the man.  Hardly.  I’m suggesting that ignorance, as always, is the root of all hate.

One final note.  I will that I was surprised, and pleased, by this post over at Red State, one of the lead conservative blogs. While I’ve found a good number of the top conservative bloggers to be quite good on gay issues, Red State’s Erick Erickson has been a bit of an outlier (read: bigot).  So it was nice to see Breeanne Howe write a diary on Red State about this topic that’s pretty darn good. Here’s a bit of her piece:

Local pastors have also shown support for the anti-gay prom. Of course anyone that is actually familiar with the Bible knows that what this group is proposing could not be further from the mission of Jesus.

Yes, in Matthew 19:4-5, Jesus reaffirms the Old Testament truth that marriage is between one man and one woman. The Bible also states in Leviticus 18:22 that to practice homosexuality is a sin. However, overwhelmingly throughout his life Jesus made clear that he came with a message of love for all. In fact, Luke 5:32 tell us:

I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.

Further, it was the sinners with which Jesus broke bread. He admonished the Pharisees for their belief that they were better than others and without sin. Clearly holy huddles were not Jesus’ style. From the prostitute Mary Magdalene to Judas, the man whose betrayal would lead to him on the cross, Jesus excluded no one. Had he excluded sinners, Jesus would have found himself alone; because the fact is that no one, including folks in Sullivan, Indiana, is without sin. Lest certain groups think their sins are less than the sins of others, the Bible is clear on that issue as well. Romans 3:23 states, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” And is the result of sin different depending on the sin? No, Romans goes on to explain in verse 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” All sin leads to the same place, separation from God. Through Christ alone we are saved.

Those in Sullivan should be ashamed of themselves. Not only are they completely misrepresenting how Christians should behave, but they are giving those that haven’t had the opportunity to know Jesus a horrible and wrong impression of his word.

Yes, she quotes the anti-gay Bible stuff (and I’m pretty sure Jesus himself didn’t affirm anything about homosexuality.)  But she gets two points for standing up to the bigots.  And that’s not nothing.

    They say they want the school to offer the students the choice of a gay-less prom (which they call a “traditional” prom) or a sinful prom (with gays). They think that if offered such a choice, most students would choose to attend the gay-less prom. Apparently they mean that if anyone was gay and wanted to attend their gay-less prom, he or she would be required to attend with an opposite-sex date and not act gay in any way. You know, like it was back in the 1950′s.

    Thanks for the language lesson, Ninong. I do appreciate it.

  • Ninong

    “Of the same kind” is a scientific term in Creation Science. There is no taxonomy because they don’t believe in the evil evolution, which was invented by satan.

  • Ninong

    The letter ‘J’ did not exist in Latin, Greek or Hebrew at that time, so no need to worry about it being too close to Jedi.

  • Ninong

    “From the prostitute Mary Magdalene to Judas…”

    Breeanne Howe will be happy to know that absolutely nowhere in the Bible is Mary Magdalene called a prostitute. Or an adulterer. Or a sinner.

    The Bible says she was the first person Jesus appeared to after the Resurrection and that he had previously cleansed her of seven demons. She is described as one of his disciples. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that she was the same Mary who washed and annointed Jesus’ feet.

    Mary Magdalene and John the Beloved were the only disciples present at the crucifixion. Even the Catholic Church finally fixed this confusion more than fifty years ago but they didn’t say much about it at the time because they were the ones who caused the mixup in the late 6th century. Apparently they forgot to send the memo to the Orthodox Christians, Anglicans, Lutherans, Baptists and others who are still confused on this point.

    If you ask the Catholic Church now, they will admit that Pope Gregory the Great was in error in 591 when he confused Mary Magdalene with another Mary in the Bible. They were two different women, according to current official interpretation by the church that called her a prostitute in the first place.

  • Ninong

    “Not one of them sees the irony in this assertion, because Yeshua bin Yusef (the ancient Hebrew language did not have the letter J — the name ‘Jesus Christ’ is a Greek invention).”

    Becca,

    There was no letter ‘J’ in either Greek or Latin at that time. The letters INRI on the cross stand for IESVS NAZARENVS REX IVDAEORVM. Translates as Jesus, the Nazarene, King of the Jews. Notice that I used only capital letters because lower case letters had not been invented yet. And I used ‘V’ for the letter ‘U’ because that’s the way the letter ‘U’ was written before the invention of the letter ‘v’, which represented the consonantal version of the vowel ‘u’.

    The letter ‘j’ was invented as the consonantal version of the vowel ‘i’ but before that time all they had was ‘i’. The letters ‘j’, ‘v’ and ‘w’ were not added to the Latin alphabet until more than 1,000 years later.

    ” No purpose in life . . .” Don’t you just love people who are so narrow minded that love to play god?

  • eborock

    I know, it’s such passive-aggressive nonsense when they say things like that. And we’ve heard it before, haven’t we? “I don’t hate black people…I have black friends.” “I have no problem with women working as long as they perform female roles.” I’d rather they be honest about their hatred instead.

  • 1jetpackangel

    I’m reminded of when my Southern Baptist stepdad made me read “Pilgrim’s Progress” when I was a kid. The protagonist, Christian, was given (I think; it’s been a while) a helmet, sword, shield, breastplate, and I guess those Roman armored sandal things or something like that–my brain wants to say “feet fitted in the readiness of the gospel of peace,” whatever that is, but I think I remember the illustrations showing Roman soldier-sandals)–but no backplate, because if he had a backplate then that might give him the idea to run. And running means you don’t trust God to give you the power to win. So when Christian’s scrawny little ass got into a fight with anything, his chances of survival (based on his armor, not on God) were higher so long as he faced his opponent and kept swinging.

    To be fair, the school in question actually has an open prom policy, which is what started this hoopla in the first place. And the teacher speaking out is NOT a teacher at that school.

    The British did the same thing with the names of the countries and cities they invaded and occupied during their Empire days. Ever wonder why ‘Bombay’ is now Mumbai? Because the Brits, hearing the local name, decided to make it more convenient for themselves, and never mind the people actually living there.

    If the past testimony and legal arguments are any indication, that’s exactly what they’ll do.

    So far, they keep pinning their reasoning on the notion of procreation — which means they’re simultaneously arguing against allowing infertile hetero couples to marry under civil law. With the corollary implied assertion that it’s bad not to be a couple’s biological child.

    Breaking news: Diana Medley is a homophobic ignoramus who ought to have her teaching certificate rescinded. And Pastor Bill Phegley pines in broken English for the good old days of Christian warriors, the Crusades, when unbelievers and heretics, witches and gay people were tortured and burned to death — all in the name of Jesus.

    Y’know, it’s funny. I love pointing out how those who point to Leviticus for justification in hating LGBT folks, for saying that being gay is morally wrong, are utter hypocrites to pick out that one thing and leave out all the other rules. Cheeseburgers, shrimp, and pork are clearly and unambiguously labeled as ‘abominations’ (in the current English sloppy translation of those ancient words). So then many of ‘em jump to the New Testament and try to say that, for example, Jesus affirmed ‘traditional’ marriage and so did Paul/Saul of Tarsus.

    (Paul/Saul also affirmed traditional slavery…but I digress.)

    Not one of them sees the irony in this assertion, because Yeshua bin Yusef (the ancient Hebrew language did not have the letter J — the name ‘Jesus Christ’ is a Greek invention) and Saul could not have conceived at all of modern marriage and emancipated women, freed from the requirement they marry whomever their father or other male relative picked for them. Traditional marriage as it was defined two thousand years ago was a guy going to a young woman’s father and essentially buying this daughter to be his wife. There was no love or romance necessarily involved in the transaction, and certainly no free will on the part of the young woman unless her father was a softie.

    Let me put this another way: A man and a woman choosing to marry each other simply because they want to, with no dowry being paid, is not traditional ‘biblical’ marriage at all. Government and/or Church regulation of marriage isn’t traditional either. The Ten Commandments make it clear that women share equal status with other items of property belonging to men, including farm animals and slaves. Nothing in the Bible — Old Testament or New — rescinds or modifies the chattel property status of human females. (Nor does it ever say that slavery is morally wrong…again, digressing.)

    Breeanne Howe’s post is rather nicely put, even if I also take issue with her citing the anti-gay stuff. For Christians, the four books dealing directly (and often contradictory) with what Jesus supposedly said — the Gospels of Mathew, Mark, Luke and John — are supposed to take precedence over everything else in the Bible. Top among these messages were not to make a public show of your faith, but to pray quietly. Not to judge anyone for any perceived moral slight, because such was entirely in the hands of God. And most of all to treat everybody else like you yourself would like to be treated.

    Somehow I think that being burned alive isn’t something any sane person would want for themselves. Nor do I think anyone would want to be hated for not having the same religion as the prevailing local majority. Nor hated for some other aspect of themselves which was not chosen but biologically determined.

    The Catholic Church used to say it was heresy to believe in heliocentricity, and claimed that Genesis was proof enough otherwise. Science proved again and again the Church was wrong. Eventually they stopped denying astronomical reality. Modern science has proven that sexual orientation and gender identity are not a choice — yet these homophobes and bigots continue to claim that being LGBT is both a choice and morally wrong.

    Clearly we have a long way to go before these science- and reality-denying bigots are as ridiculed as anybody today so foolish and uneducated to believe in objectively false pre-medieval cosmology.

  • http://www.facebook.com/monoceros.forth Monoceros Forth

    The implications of her statement are alarming for multiple reasons. It bring a couple of things to mind, actually…

    NARRATOR: The best [musical] instruments are uniform. Every one is exactly like every other of the same kind.

    TOM SERVO: “Just like you and me!”

    Also this:

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident!” [Meg Murry] shouted, “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” …Then she realized that Charles Wallace was speaking, or being spoken through by IT.

    “But that’s exactly what we have on Camazotz. Complete equality. Everybody exactly alike.”

    For a moment her brain reeled with confusion. Then came a moment of blazing truth. “No!” she cried triumphantly. “Like and equal are not the same thing at all!”

    It really does seem that Ms. Medley believes that being “created equal” refers not so much to equality in any abstract and universal sense but rather sameness. We emerge into the world with a certain set of social and behavioral norms, like computers all set up with the same operating system, and any deviation from those norms represents a degradation, a loss of sameness and therefore in Ms. Medley’s eyes a loss of what she thinks of as equality.

    The thing is, I was under the impression that the concept of equality before God had nothing to do with whatever you’ve done as a person and everything to do with being, simply, a person. We’re all brothers and sisters with one Father, right? (I’m not saying I believe as much; I’m just trying to give my understanding of the concept.) Leave theology out of it and we’re still left with the powerful concept of equality before the law. Now we all know that both these concepts have taken a serious beating from time to time but, still, the ideals are there, fixed (supposedly) and axiomatic. Ms. Medley is saying outright that no such ideal of universal equality exists. Because homosexual persons have ostensibly forfeited their equality before God by their sinful actions, they also have forfeited equality before the law and deserve to be exiled from what is supposed to be a celebration open to all students. Even if you accept this astonishing premise, doesn’t that mean that other students ought to be kicked out as well for being sinners? Somehow I doubt Ms. Medley believes that (say) the kid who got caught cheating on his algebra midterm has broken the terms of his equality the same way as those icky queers. The cheater gets to go to the real prom still, I’m sure.

    That’s a lot of words to say a simple thing: even if homosexuality is purely a matter of choice and a willful sin, does not the homosexual student deserve equal treatment anyway under any legitimate notion of equality?

    Isn’t being a Bible thumper purely a matter of choice, anyway? Why should her choice get special regard?

    It gets even worse than that! Ms. Medley puts homosexual students in the same category as her special needs students–objects to be pitied, really. Surely Ms. Medley isn’t suggesting that being born with a developmental disability is a voluntary forfeiture of equality in the same way? Certainly the implication is there: being either gay or disable makes you a second-class human.

    What can one say about this? It makes rather clear that the objections to equal rights for gays is not based on any kind of objective harm to society that can be identified but rather to an attitude of bigotry as in ‘they have no purpose’ and ‘we’re not runnin’ anymore’ (as if heterosexuality is somehow under attack just because the law would not allow you to make life miserable for gays).

  • HermeticallySealed

    This is not the school trying to push for this, it is a handful of parents and a wacked out ‘special needs’ teacher. The school, and the majority of teachers and students, are all for an inclusive prom.

  • caphillprof

    My understanding is, and I think we should note, that the school itself is NOT seeking ,to exclude anybody from the prom. This is a group of parents, some ministers and one rather odd teacher. Also this is a community of only 4,200 about 27 miles south of the metropolis of Terre Haute, so the prom would be rather small to begin with.

    And it would be hard to have a “traditional” prom without one or more very, very closeted homosexuals in attendance. I wonder who they can find to fit that role today? If they invited them would they come?

    “Christians always been prepared for a fight. But Jesus Christ give us armor for the front, not the back, we aren’t runnin’ no more.”

    *groans* This is hardly the first time I’ve heard this talk of “armor” from a Jesus freak. Pretty sure there was a lot of it in “Jesus Camp”, for instance. I just can’t imagine going through life thinking that you’re surrounded on all sides with enemies against whom you need to “armor” yourself. Shouldn’t spirituality be an expansive, liberating force? Something that make the world seem brighter? (Sorry, it’s really early and I haven’t had much sleep or any coffee, under which circumstances I am bound to get florid.) Evangelical spiritual seems entirely the opposite. Your world narrows and darkens, you trust fewer and fewer people. It seems like a very uncomfortable trap. No wonder so many of these Bible-thumpers hope Jesus is coming soon to whisk them away.
