A Mt. Pleasant, MI high school pulled a keynote speaker from their program after finding out that he's not only gay, but also engaged. People from around the country are outraged and bombarding the school administration with petition signatures and comments, such as "True Christians beleive in unconditional LOVE. Stop discrimination & hatred in our schools," and "As an alum of SHA, I find this disgraceful. It's sad to see my school and (former) church drift so far away from the teachings of Jesus, who I'm certain would not approve of the way they are treating this young man. Shame."
Those who oppose this young man speaking say that it's not so much that he's gay, but the fact that he's engaged. They say that the private Catholic school/church does not support gay marriage, and does not feel that this person is the best choice to represent the school and its principles and beliefs.
Here's the link to the Change.org petition, which is being signed by people from around the country. If you have a comment or opinion either way, don't hesitate to sign your own name and send a comment. All petition signatures are emailed to the school administration.
