Educators In Joplin, MO Are Insane

Is it just me, or is there an inordinate amount of stupid coming out of all the places I presently live or recently lived lately?  Here’s one from a math teacher in Joplin, MO commenting on a former students wall about a gay teen ending their life.

It’s enough to make you cynical about humanity when people can think that it’s the gayness causing the suicide, not the culture of merciless hate in which gay teens must live that has been forged by people who assure us they love the sinner*.

Think this teacher is some loopy extremist?  Think again.

According to local news KOAMTV.com, Joplin High stated in its defense that it was “not aware of a specific school guideline on discriminating against gays.”

Great call, geniuses!  The school probably doesn’t have a specific school guideline on discriminating against people with brown eyes either.  I wonder if they would have used that defense if the teacher had said 11-13 brown-eyed teens should kill themselves.

That’s a lie.  I know they wouldn’t.  That would just make them insane and nobody would buy the excuse then.  Are these really the best people we can find to prepare the next generation?  Fuck.
