Thanks Grux. Section 8 is the part that is so offensive. Other than the passage of the law in the first place.

This is super crazy guys. its already getting out of hand. What's next public lenchings as long as the culprit feels and truly believes he/she is a superior to the victim. This needs to stop! Instead of moving forward from the days of religious persecution we're going right back to them.

Those motherfuckers

I have posted and reposted this to my facebook page, and will continue to do so. It absolutely sickens me that such a blatant law allowing discrimination toward gays and others who aren't Christian or who are "different" was even proposed! This senator is obviously very shaken by this and I am proud of her strong words against it. We have got to stop religion from ruining our country once and for all!

The dumbest thing about this is this is a gateway to allow further abuse and bullying in other forms. We will be paying for this for generations to come. These laws will morph into commands for religion to be used as a weapon more than it is already (pakistan/ isreal conflicts, the "war on terrorism is completely fueled by religious reasons")

Like it was god who led the kkk to burning crosses in african american front yards and god also tells these creepers they're superior beings so its okay. Man I tell ya I can't wait to leave this state and hopefully this country I'm over it

"But in a change before Wednesday's vote, Republican lawmakers added a clause ensuring that the bill "does not prohibit a statement of a sincerely held belief or moral conviction" of a student or school worker."

 

Laws like this come dangerously close to the First Amendment.  Talking is not bullying unless you are making a direct threat yourself. 

That's a lot different than your claim.

Just limiting speech that may offend someone isn't Constitutional and it shouldn't be.  Christians tell me I'm going to Hell all the time.  Personally I find that funny.  If you don't, then you need to examine why.

I don't have a problem with someone saying something they really believe like that.  They ought to be able to .  That's what freedom is.

So what else is new?  God has ALWAYS been a bully.  Have you read the Old Testament, lately?

@ Godless Conservative - A child at school has limited rights.  As adults we have the right to use swear words, racial slurs, sexual language, etc.. where a child in school would not.  If a child wishes to pray, read his bible, etc during breaks he is free to do so, but it's ridiculous to allow his religious rights to extend into bullying.  As the old saying goes "Your right to swing your arms ends just before my nose"

OMFG!!! I was bullied unmercifully because of my autism in middle school and I was driven insane... literally! I ended up making 3 unsuccessful suicide attempts in 8th grade. (2 drowning... 1 strangulation with a bed sheet).... I developed panic disorder... a very serious anxiety disorder that often leads to agoraphobia (think the people that can't leave their house!). I developed bipolar disorder. Nearly 10 years later I ended up in the psychiatric ward of the hospital after being brought to the emergency room from a psychotic nervous breakdown related to the horrors that I experienced in the past. (It wasn't just bullying btw... I was sexually harrassed regularly by my classmates and they would stand at the top of the stairs and attempt to trip me... I literally feared for my safety at school) It would not be an exaggeration to say that these children almost destroyed me. How did I survive? I survived because of my personality trait of having the stubbornness of a donkey... something you all have probably noticed. I was determined to survive... so I did. But I did not come out without deep permanent wounds to my psyche. I am now officially mentally ill and I will be taking mood stablizers, anti-anxiety and anti-depressant drugs for the rest of my life... and a great deal of it is because I entered middle school immateur and naive as a 4th grader and left with in the state of an abused animal. 

Do I hold a grudge... no. They were kids that didn't understand me. I forgive them.

But these Republicans are MONSTERS!! HOW COULD THEY EVER WISH FOR ANYONE TO GO THROUGH AN EXPERIENCE LIKE MINE?! I WAS AFRAID EVERYDAY! I WAS 12 YEARS OLD WHEN I FIRST DECIDED I DIDN'T WANT TO LIVE ANYMORE! 

WHAT KIND OF SOULESS CREATURES ARE THEY TO WANT CHILDREN TO SUFFER TO THE POINT OF BEING SUICIDAL?!
