If this this passes, whats next? Having people who ID them selves as LGBT wear badges?

of course, since no country has ever made a certain minority wear badges/etc to single them out to no good end :whistle:

Ohh but "we all know that little Billy wouldn't bully anyone, he's so kind and gentle - you're slandering him by saying that and we'll sue!"
And words to that effect.


The parents. And Lord only knows what they'll do. The reaction'll range from acceptance, verbal abuse, ostracision, physical abuse and murder.

To be fair, it can also lean towards the parents being able to help.  Many children do not realize that parents have wisdom and experiences that they understand.

I'm not saying this would be a good law.   Just pointing out that all parents are not abusive monsters.

True, but the point is the state is essentially taking away children's rights to seek information/help from someone they may trust without that trustee being legally obligated to tattle on them.

If the kids don't want their parents to know that's their business, not the state's.

Surely being a teacher should be similar to being a Priest, in terms of confidentiality at least.

If teaching was anything like being a priest, trust me, I'd pick a different major.

Jesus Christ - Matthew 28:18-20 said:

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Ok......so? Let's just say for giggles, I'm gay and I'm in Tennessee and someone reports me......to whomever is supposed to have this sort of thing reported to them? What's this person going to do? Pray for me? Lay hands on me and drive out the evil demon of homosexuality? What is it that they want to do once they "target" some gay person or lesbian?

Being gay is simply a function of who you are......sort of like being right or left handed or having blue or brown eyes. Hell, in my little back water, po-dunk high school in rural South Carolina in the sixties and more specifically within my own class we had/have eight gay persons. Six male and two female. (please let's don't get all bogged down in correct terminology, Gay/lesbian). Out of a graduating class of one hundred thirty-seven. Granted, I was surprised at a couple of them, but that's really neither here nor there. Had anyone come out back then in that place, at that time, I can assure you someone might have gotten bashed. Hey, rednecks, we had them then and they're still around, ok?

So? What is to be gained by reporting them?

Sadly, the people who put that law forward most likely felt they were completely doing the right thing. To them, they probably thought they were correcting a problem.

Aye.... like the Wannsee Conference.  So many problems and so few solutions.

The past has seen passing laws that sounded good to replace what worked.

They probably have a gay/lesbian son/daughter/niece/nephew and didn't like being blindsided both privately(personal life) and publicly(political life) so they took steps to get informed without thought to how the child will feel.
