Anti-gay chorus finds its exceedingly vicious 'Medley'

by Jeremy Hooper

Obviously, I see and hear a lot of nasty denigration in my days monitoring the anti-LGBT movement. The following words are about as sweeping and downright offensive as any I've ever seen, especially when you consider that they come from a PUBLIC EDUCATOR:

Among the supporters [of a straight-only prom] is Diana Medley, a special education teacher at nearby North Central Jr./Sr. High School in the Northeast Screen Shot 2013-02-11 At 2.18.23 PmSchool Corporation, who told WTWO she doesn't believe anyone is born gay.

"We don't agree with it (homosexuality), and it's offensive to us," she said. "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."

When asked if she thinks gays have a purpose in life, Medley said, "No I honestly don't. Sorry, but I don't. I don't understand it."

"A gay person isn't going to come up and make some change unless it's to realize that it was a choice and they're choosing God," Medley told WTWO.

LGBT people are offensive and have no purpose? Same thing as special needs kids? Gays have to change and choose God?

This isn't just rhetoric—it's abuse.
