CNN sticks up for kid who refuses to say pledge.

Posted by iusbvision on November 21, 2009

This young man says that he refuses to say the pledge until gays are allowed to marry.

The young man has been propagandized by someone most likely. He does not understand that a marriage contract is a contract between two people, their chosen deity and the people of the state.  To force gay marriage is to force the consent of the people to be a part of a legal contract against their will. Judicial fiat is undemocratic. If people in a state choose to vote for gay marriage that is their choice but it should not be forced by some black-robed tyrant.

With that said, if this young man does not want to say the pledge he has rights and they should be respected. Kids may call him names so long as it does not get too disruptive but if it goes passed that the school should clamp down hard. Bullying should not be tolerated.

Everyone knows that the only bullies entitled to legal protection are the SEIU and the Teachers Union.

Good for CNN for sticking up for this kid. I would have too.

Dangerous to whom?

Ed Morrissey at Hotair.com:

 

This is actually kind of cute, and completely hypocritical.  Organizing for America warns its mailing list of a new danger to America.  Is it terrorists getting a global platform in federal court?  Political correctness keeping soldiers in danger?  Massive deficits being run up by the Democrats to satisfy their statist agenda?  Er … not quite:

President Obama’s political operation took a shot at Sarah Palin today, accusing her of lying on her media blitz.

“It’s dangerous,” Organizing for America Director Mitch Stewart said of Palin’s book tour. …

Russ Carnahan and St. Louis Democrats Tried to Censor Political Speech

By the way, the bakery takes in over a million dollar a year, but their profit margin is 2% and when the commodities market changed they lost money and almost went out of business. Since McArthur’s Bakery takes in over $250,000 a year they are a part of the evil rich that Obama says aren’t paying their fair share.

If Obama’s tax plan was in place the bakery would be gone and the employees would be on unemployment.
