Bullying Video Prompts Teacher’s Resignation

Associated Press - November 3, 2015 7:03 am


CONWAY SPRINGS, Kan. (AP) — A Conway Springs teacher has been asked to resign after showing students an anti-bully video that depicts a dystopian society in which homosexual children bully heterosexual children.

Conway Springs Middle School social studies teacher Tom Leahy is on leave and said he likely won’t return to teaching because the controversial video “upset too many people.”

Leahy said he showed the independent film “Love Is All You Need” to three eighth-grade history classes as a lesson in tolerance last month. Showing the video was a response to an assignment Leahy gave his students to create a colony. At least one group rejected gay people in its colony.

The school board is expected to accept the teacher’s resignation at its Nov. 9 meeting.

The newspaper’s calls to several board members weren’t returned Monday.

So evidently this teacher is Gay. So what right does he have to be able to show this to our children? He is there to teach not promote the gay community.

What part of this did you not understand:
“Love Is All You Need? hopes to shed light onto the controversial issue of equal human rights in the LBGT Community. The film also hopes to raise awareness about the obstacles that many other communities face. Love Is All You Need? reveals the backwardness of our own society in matters of acceptance and freedom of choice.” The intent of the film is to promote gays. Thanks for supporting my initial comment.

Doug, you and your brother Stan are nothing but racist bigots.
All you do is hate anyone who isn’t a good ole white boy who isnt gay or lesbian.
You too are the armpit of this city, county, state & nation. You have NO tolerance unless people are just like you two….white , redneck, bigot & racist. Jesus said love others as yourself. You two are on your way to hell.

Juanita Ramirez get your head out of where the sun don’t shine. I do not have a brother Stan and where you got that I do not know. Hate is what you racists use as your comments are always hateful to your ex the commissioner and others. Calling me an arm pit is really appropriate coming from a horses behind.
