Does the name Diana Medley ring any bells? She is the special education teacher who supported some students that wanted a “traditional prom” without gays. Medley doesn’t believe anyone is born gay, she believes that people are gay because of “life circumstances and they choose to be that way; God created everyone equal”.
“‘So the same goes for gays? Do you think they have a purpose in life?’ No I honestly don’t. Sorry, but I don’t. I don’t understand it. A gay person isn’t going to come up and make some change unless it’s to realize that it was a choice and they’re choosing God,” said Medley.
Yeah, she’s sounds like a lovely gal. Sadly, this is the way that many, many Christians think now. That because I chose to be gay, I have, therefore, chosen to reject God.
Newsflash: I didn’t choose either of those things.
Anyway, there are reports that an Indiana teacher has been suspended for her anti-gay remarks and most signs point to this being Diana Medley.
The Indy Chanel reports:
Superintendent Mark Baker of the Northeast School Corp. in western Indiana’s Sullivan County issued a statement Wednesday saying the teacher has been placed on administrative leave and that state and local police are stationing officers at North Central Junior-Senior High School as a precaution because of “aggressive” email messages sent to the school and the teacher.
Baker did not identify the teacher, but special education teacher Diana Medley’s comments have circulated widely on social networking sites amid news coverage of an alternative prom dance at a nearby school that would ban gay students.
So, Diana, yes, I believe we are created equal. I tried long and hard to be attracted to women, it did not work. God? Well, yes, that I chose.
