There They Go Again!

We just saw a school board willing to do away with all student clubs in order to prevent the formation of a Gay-Straight Alliance club.

As the blog of Americans United for Separation of Church and State reports, the Chambersburg Area School District School Board in Pennsylvania is willing to go them one better ... they are prepared to saddle the students in their care with a sizable court award that will rob them of the resources to get the education they deserve. The lesson unlearned: the Okeechobee County (Florida) School Board paid $326,000 in attorneys' fees to the ACLU for denying students the right to form a GSA club. I think even high school students could come up with better uses of such money ... even if the board cannot.

But, as usual, irony is what tickles me into commenting:
GSA President Amber Fogelsonger said one of the board members who voted against the group said that the alliance is similar to the existing multi-cultural group and therefore would be unnecessary.
However, as Americans United pointed out, the Chambersburg Area Senior High School has not one, but two Christian clubs open to students.

Do you suppose the board told either of them that they are so similar that only one needed to exist?

Naw, I didn't think so either.

Good day! This is my first comment here so I just wanted
to give a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading through your blog posts.
Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same topics?
Thanks a lot!
