It's no colder here in Toronto than in your Midwest or Northeast.

I don't live in an igloo.

You must be lying, anitram. See, I was talking to dandy and asking her how she kills her food, you know, in days of the Pioneer style? And she denied it to and said you guys have supermarkets and stuff. It's interesting that you're both telling falsehoods independantly!

Well, I'm originally from the Midwest (well, technically, the Plains, but some people do refer to it as the Midwest regardless), so if that's the case, then....

There'd be upsides to living in Canada or Australia . Wouldn't mind someplace in Europe, either .

Yeah, I don't get this at all. If her parents were both murderers, or convicted rapists, I still wouldn't get it.

Actually, you should be puzzled by the basis for the school's rule and why the parents chose to send the child to this school. My guess is that everyone here would not send their child to this school.

well first off as a private school they have every right to do what they did, as stupid as it may have been.

second... i don't find it a very christian type thing to cast out a child based on the perceived sins of the parents.

(disclaimer before someone misreads what i said and starts slamming me... i do not think homsexuality is a sin, but this school obviously does, thus then... yea.)

^ agreed.

if people want to be idiots, and they have their own money, then they are perfectly free to do so.

Well like someone pointed out earlier they are both devout Lutherns and I guess they had too much faith that the school would work on Biblical teachings rather than bias and bigotry.

but don't you see, BVS?

if they were really devout Lutherans, they wouldn't have selected the lesbian lifestyle.

The converse is expected too. If they are devout lesbians, they would not have selected the Lutheran lifestyle.

So many stereotypes about homosexuals exist out there.
