Re: “N.C. Governor's School under pressure from anti-gay group

I attended GSE last summer, and had the time of MY LIFE! I am a Christian and don't agree with homosexuality, but I don't judge anyone who is homo or heterosexual b/c I believe we're all equal, and so are our sins equal. If Tanya is not offered her job back based on her sexuality, that's against the law, and wrong. I think it good that people are exposed and educated about homosexuality, because people treat homosexuals like they've got the plague, and we're all equals. homophobia can only be ended with education. It's the same as ending drug abuse and teen pregnancy with education. I don't support the advocacy of homosexuality, but after watching Ma vie en Rose, I didn't feel pressured to become homosexual. Governor's school is all about being exposed to topics that exist in the real world, contrary to what the limited curriculums suggest in public high schools. Being sheltered from the exchange of ideas that happens at Governor's School does nothing but promote close-mindedness, which produces people who cannot survive in today's global economy and workplace, not to mention produce weak leaders. We don't have to accept everything as ok, but we need to learn about everything and everyone that we can so that we can get along better and communicate better. I learned that from GSE. It made me so much more open-minded and less judgemental.
