Students told to Cover Straight Pride Shirts

Students told to Cover Straight Pride Shirts

by admin on March 31, 2011

Reprinted from Vision2Forum——-It wasn’t exactly what they’d planned, but St. Charles North High School administrators said an anti-bullying initiative may have accomplished its goal after a group of students wore “Straight Pride” T-shirts through the hallways this week.

“While it may have been a little bit controversial at times, the kids at North are talking about this,” said Jim Blaney, director of school and community relations for St. Charles Unit District 303. “They are learning about people who might have a different opinion than theirs.”

Several students complained to high school administrators Monday — the first day of an anti-bullying “Ally Week” — when three students wore the T-shirts, which also quoted a Biblical passage advocating death as a punishment for homosexual activity.

Deans met with the students, and after establishing that there was no threat of physical harm to others, asked the students to cross out a portion of the Biblical passage with permanent marker.

When two different students came to school the next day wearing homemade “Straight Pride” shirts — without the Biblical passage — administrators asked them to cover up with sweatshirts
