Principal Went on Anti-Homosexuality “Crusade”, “Witch Hunt”, Says Judge

Holmes County,Florida– Principal David Davis led a “relentless crusade” against homosexuality at Ponce de Leon High School, a federal judge said in court documents filed Thursday….

“Davis embarked on what can only be characterized as a witch hunt,” wrote U.S. District Judge Richard Smoak, who blasted him for his “morality assemblies” and misunderstanding of the First Amendment.

The opinion came more than two months after Heather Gillman and the American Civil Liberties Union won a free-speech lawsuit against the Holmes County School Board – which actually was Davis’ complicit “alter ego,” Smoak wrote….

Students had begun showing support following the taunting of a gay student at school.

In response to the taunting incident, Davis told the gay student it wasn’t right for her to be homosexual and held a morality assembly, according to testimony.

Then, after an investigation into the “secret society” of gay pride at school, Davis suspended several students for supporting the girl. He told one suspended student’s mother “he could secretly send her daughter off to a private Christian school” and said “if there was a man in your house … you wouldn’t be having any of these gay issues,” according to the court.

Davis banned rainbows, pink triangles and a number of what he called sexually suggestive slogans. The slogans included “I Support Gays” and “God Loves Me Just the Way I Am.”

According to another source [here], this jerk, who is no longer serving as Principal, is teaching American Government at the same school.  Poor kids!

    Jerks like this – whose brain and “morality” is stuck in the Dark Ages – are a constant reminder of how the Inquisition worked. Just substitute any word you care to use to describe whichever minority is hated by the self-righteous, e.g., Jew, Catholic, Black, Gypsy, Communist, Freethinker.

    Hitler didn’t miss many of them, did he?

    No further evidence is needed to show that ‘mental illness’ is not the name of a biological condition whose nature awaits to be elucidated, but is the name of a concept whose purpose is to obscure the obvious.Dr.ThomasSzaszDr. Thomas Szasz
