Another Homo vs. Christian Boy/Public School Battle

The above is a great seven-page letter from Liberty Counsel to a Wisconsin School District, full of cited case law, re the school recently villifying a 15-year-old Christian sophomore when a homo adult in the community was “offended” by what the Christian boy wrote in the school’s newspaper. The homo claimed the content would cause homo kids to “commit suicide” >> their usual emotionally-charged claim. Statistics prove otherwise.

Liberty Counsel says the school cannot constitutionally cowtow to what is known as a “Heckler’s Veto” (the homo’s complaint). Love that “Heckler’s Veto” law! Who knew? Basically it says that a “heckler in the crowd” cannot “veto” the free speech of the other person just because the heckler doesn’t like what the other guy is saying. :D

The 1/23/12 letter & its cited case law is worth saving in case anyone ever needs to “play lawyer” for themselves, besides just being a great read in itself (not all law is bad & boring!). Read the letter here:

Above is an actual copy of what the Christian student wrote in the newspaper (he should have included the Jesus-to-Paul verses re homo & lesbian sex in Romans chapter 1, plus 1st Corinthians 6 instead. I included those further below). Read that school newspaper page here:

Help Liberty Counsel Stand Up to
Radical Leftist Bullies!

Attacks on Public School Students, Teachers, Administrators, and School Systems are reaching epidemic proportions…

Ultraliberal activists, pro-homosexual radicals, left-leaning government agencies, and anti-religious organizations are producing blatant disinformation campaigns and using other intimidation tactics aimed to silence, censor, and persecute people of faith. Anyone who holds viewpoints contrary to their own is “fair game” to these radicals!

Under the guise of anti-bullying – THEY have become the BULLIES! Pro-moral Americans like you and me are in their crosshairs and the incidents of anti-Christian bigotry are on the rise! Don’t be misled by their carefully orchestrated attacks, censorship, and widespread propaganda.

The TRUTH is: PRO-LIFE, PRO-FAMILY, PRO-LIBERTY, AND PRO-FAITH AMERICANS DON’T LEAVE THEIR FREEDOM AT THE SCHOOLHOUSE OR CITY HALL DOORS!

Help us fight back … and win!
In order to stand up to these bullies, Liberty Counsel MUST be able to show up in the defense of a rising number of victims.

And above is a photo of a typical inflammatory headline (3rd one down) which erroneously reports that the school’s newspaper “Calls for DEATH OF GAYS”! Pfff! Ridiculous! The boy merely quoted this Old Testament scripture in his article:

Leviticus 20:13: “If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them.”

The problem with these people, homo or not, is they despise God’s opinion regarding sin — ANY sin — that’s all there is to it. If they had half a brain they would get to know the Bible & the God they despise so much. If they did that, they would learn:

•Those Leviticus verses contained the national laws for governing the ancient nation of Israel. It was THEIR “Constitution,” so to speak. God did not want perversion to take root so He made laws to weed it out. That was His prerogative & they agreed to abide by it. You don’t like history? Too bad. Get over it already. It is ancient history!

•Leviticus is not the law in any Christian nation. When is the last time the USA government put any homos to death? Hello! (Put on your “thinking caps”!)

•God still hates sin of ALL kind. Yet He ALREADY made provision to deal with ALL SIN, ie, He sent Jesus Christ to live & suffer & die as a human to pay OFF the sin debt of the ENTIRE WORLD (homo sin included!).

•Homos should be rejoicing that their sin debt was/is covered by the blood of Christ 2,000 years ago already, & bowing their knees to Jesus in thankfulness!

•Instead they continue to act like mental midgets, pansies, & crybabies. Every human living in willful sin of ANY kind has a “persecution complex.” It’s called “conviction” & it is a GIFT from God as He is trying to tell sinners to WAKE UP. Ignore it to your own harm. << That means you bring it on yourself.

•If LBGTQs refuse to accept God’s provision for their sin debt (ie, Christ’s shed blood), just like WE ALL need to do, then they are left to pay for their sin debt themselves. It’s as simple as that. These scriptures are from the HERE & NOW New Testament & these DO STILL APPLY. Notice they describe **ALL** types of sins, not just homo sins:

Romans Chapter 1:18-32:The Condemnation of the Unrighteous
18 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator,who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

And…

1st Corinthians 6:9-10:
9 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

Lastly, here are the two emails dated 1/27/12, sent approximately 18 hours apart, from Liberty Counsel re this latest case:

Student called “ignorant” by official for pro-family stand:

Student called “ignorant” by official for pro-family stand

Brandon Wegner, a 15-year-old student, has been called “ignorant” by his school system’s superintendent, bullied, censored, punished, and held up to ridicule, all for writing an op-ed article explaining the Biblical view of homosexuality and supporting natural mother-father adoption.

Liberty Counsel is representing Brandon and his family at no charge. The actions of these officials are outrageous and we intend to reverse this shocking situation! Please read my very important message on this crucial legal action – Mat.

Shawano, Wisconsin, Community High School student Brandon Wegner is pursuing journalism and writes for the student newspaper “The Hawk’s Post.” Brandon and another student proposed several ideas for article topics to their faculty advisor for the student newspaper.

They eventually selected “homosexual adoption” and wrote a point-counter point in parallel columns with Brandon taking the position that homosexual adoption is wrong. He supported his position by citing Bible passages.

Brandon wrote about his view of the importance of a family having both a mother and a father. The discussion among the two students was very civil and, frankly, a model of how people should discuss controversial issues with each other.

But, a homosexual parent read the article and protested. The school principal called Brandon into his office and told him he could not speak about religion, politics, or social issues in a public school. And, without his parent’s knowledge, Brandon was called into one meeting after another, causing him to miss study time for exams and even missing one exam.

He was then hauled before Superintendent Todd Carlson who told him that the column he wrote “went against the bullying policy.” Superintendent Carlson asked Brandon to recant his views, and when he would not, he told Brandon he was “ignorant” for having his belief, and then said “we have the power to suspend you.”

The Superintendent then communicated with the school community and apologized for Brandon’s article on homosexual adoption. School officials then censored Brandon’s article, forcing him and his classmates participating in the news writing course to physically rip the page out of the newspaper before distribution at their school.

Liberty Counsel is now representing the Wegner family and sent a letter to the school demanding an apology for its unconstitutional and irrational censorship and for Brandon’s humiliation. You can see Brandon’s article and our 7-page Demand Letter to the Shawano School District Board of Education by clicking here:
http://www.libertyaction.org/10082/offer.asp

++Shawano school officials got it perfectly upside down!

In a statement, the school “sincerely apologized” – NOT for allowing the topic to begin with, or for rushing to judgment, or for violating a student’s constitutional rights, but ONLY for the Biblical viewpoint presented in Brandon’s writing!

Under the guise of stopping bullying, the ACTUAL bullying at Shawano High School was perpetrated by Superintendent Todd Carlson and his subordinates – certainly not the student!

These school officials have displayed blatant intolerance of a view on homosexuality held by many people in our nation. The school’s actions are shocking and totally unjustified. As outlined in our Demand Letter, the superintendent should immediately apologize and stop HIS bullying!

++Liberty Counsel must be able to show up for battles like this!

“Political correctness” and overt anti-Christian bigotry have been relentlessly pounding our culture for several decades and these attacks have taken a terrible toll.

As a consequence of the ongoing leftist indoctrination, our values – and people expressing views contrary to the approved ultraliberal script – are now squarely in the REAL bullies’ crosshairs.

Sadly, pro-homosexual indoctrination is intensifying. But Liberty Counsel aggressively defends the rights of Americans who experience anti-Christian bigotry at the hands of misguided public officials.

I am asking you to make a special gift today to help us defend the hapless victims of illegal censorship, viewpoint discrimination, and outright persecution for expressing sincerely held religious beliefs.

Our representation in these cases is free to those citizens whose values and faith have been assaulted. But we cannot come to the defense of victims like Brandon and the Wegner family unless we have your support and that of thousands of other concerned Americans.

Our litigation team is working hard to keep on top of attempts to turn America into just another European-style, godless, socialist state and our caseload is growing as never before.

We represent upstanding American citizens… like Jerry Buell, our client in Central Florida, who we helped get reinstated in his teaching duties after his rights were infringed upon by an overzealous and misinformed school administration. His “offense”? Jerry expressed his view on his Facebook page that New York’s same-sex marriage law was wrong!

Another of our clients, Dakota Ary, a high school freshman in Fort Worth, Texas, was suspended from school for merely stating his Christian view on homosexuality to a classmate which his teacher overheard. Liberty Counsel defended Dakota against that misguided teacher’s accusations and an uninformed administration’s abuse of his rights. Dakota was fully exonerated and the teacher was placed on administrative leave!

These cases are representative of today’s intensifying assaults on First Amendment rights by leftist bullies who use intimidation to silence those who speak from a different viewpoint than their own.

++We don’t have to meekly accept moral collapse!

We depend on friends who give $20, $30, $50, $100 – whatever the Lord leads – so we can stay involved in these crucial battles.

Officials’ bullying of student stirs national outrage:

Officials’ bullying of student stirs national outrage!

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman

1/27/2012

This is now a breaking national news story: Brandon Wegner, a 15-year-old Wisconsin student was bullied, censored, punished, and ridiculed for writing an op-ed article explaining the Biblical view of homosexuality and supporting natural mother-father adoption. It turns out the main actors in this travesty were people in authority over Brandon and his schoolmates – his high school principal and the superintendent!

Under the guise of enforcing the school’s “anti-bullying” policy, Brandon was set up for humiliation and school officials intended to “make him an example.” But Liberty Counsel is now representing Brandon and – mark my words – this outrageous situation WILL be set straight! Please read my very important message and legal update – Mat.

Over the past few days, I have been sought out by several national media outlets to discuss Liberty Counsel’s defense of Brandon Wegner, a Shawano, Wisconsin, high school student who was threatened and bullied by (among others) Todd Carlson, the school system’s superintendent, for merely exercising his First Amendment rights!

Americans are understandably outraged over this incident. Media outlets are seizing upon the story because the facts are nearly unbelievable. In case you missed it, here is what happened:

While participating in one of his school’s news writing courses, and under the supervision of a faculty sponsor, Brandon teamed up with a fellow student to produce a “point-counter-point” column for the school paper on the subject of “homosexual adoption.”

The subject of the op-ed piece was discussed among students and the newspaper’s sponsor in advance. Brandon took the position that homosexual adoption is wrong. He supported his position by citing Bible passages.

Brandon wrote from his view of the importance of a family having both a mother and a father. The other student expressed a contrasting opinion. The written discussion among the two students was very civil and, frankly, a model of how people should discuss controversial issues with each other.

Actually, the editorial piece and its presentation was quite good work for a high school publication, and could have been an excellent learning experience and point of pride for Shawano High School and its aspiring journalists. But that was not to be.

++A complaint from an adult homosexual ignited a firestorm!

A homosexual parent read the point-counterpoint article and protested. The school principal then called Brandon into his office and told him he could not speak about religion, politics, or social issues in a public school.

And, without his parent’s knowledge, Brandon was called into one meeting after another, causing him to miss study time for exams and even missing an exam.

Brandon was then hauled before the school superintendent who told him that the column he wrote “went against the bullying policy.” Superintendent Todd Carlson asked Brandon to recant his views, and when he would not, told Brandon he was “ignorant” for having his belief, and then said, “We have the power to suspend you.”

++Superintendent Carlson chose to publically humiliate our client!

The Superintendent then communicated with the entire school community and apologized for Brandon’s article on homosexual adoption! School officials officially censored Brandon’s article, forcing him and his classmates participating in the news writing course to physically rip the page out of the newspaper before it could be distributed at their school.

This is an outrageous case of a misguided school official abusing his authority and trying to make an example of a student – a student who was actually in the right all along!

Liberty Counsel is now representing the Wegner family and sent a strongly worded letter to the school’s leadership and School Board members DEMANDING an apology for its unconstitutional and irrational censorship of Brandon’s article.

You can see the school newspaper article and our 7-page Demand Letter to the Shawano School District Board of Education by clicking here:

http://www.libertyaction.org/10082/offer.asp

Under the guise of stopping bullying, the ACTUAL bullying at Shawano High School was perpetrated by Superintendent Todd Carlson and his subordinates – certainly not our client!

Now more than ever there is an increasing need for the kind of assistance Liberty Counsel was founded to provide to keep our culture from being pushed over the edge by radical bullies and misguided zealots!

Here’s what we’re up against: The pro-homosexual movement is getting more aggressive in pushing ultraliberal legislation, flooding the judicial system with “hate crimes” complaints, and infiltrating the nation’s public school systems with pro-homosexual indoctrination…all the way down to the elementary levels.

I am calling on my Liberty Counsel team to resist this anti-family bigotry! The fact is, we need your help if we are to continue defending the victims of pro-homosexual bullying.

Please consider a gift right now, which will enable us to continue to confront the radical pro-homosexual agenda. Click here to make a special gift and to read Brandon’s article and Liberty Counsel’s Demand Letter:

http://www.libertyaction.org/10082/offer.asp

This case is one of many in which Liberty Counsel is facing off against radical pro-homosexual activists. Could you make a special gift today so we can continue to defend students like Brandon – and families like the Wegners – FREE of charge?

They are the victims in this case – people who were thrust into a bad situation through no fault of their own. And believe me, they face powerful adversaries! Tragically, this sort of thing can happen to any one of us these days.

That’s one of the most important reasons why Liberty Counsel was founded – to defend the rights of those who are being unjustly persecuted for their faith or moral convictions.

Please consider a gift of any amount –
$20, $30, $50, $100 – whatever the Lord leads – so we can stay involved in these crucial battles.

P.S. Brandon Wegner was bullied by a powerful school superintendent who had serious misconceptions about the law that governs situations like this. The misguided school administrators got the facts totally upside down!

Our Demand Letter has gone a long way toward educating these woefully misinformed officials and Liberty Counsel will do whatever else is necessary to correct this outrageous situation. We WILL win this battle and expose the true bullies – but we need your help to do it.

Again, the radical movement to advance a small minority’s manufactured “rights” is perhaps the greatest cultural threat of our generation. Thank you for standing with Brandon and Liberty Counsel in this battle!

    Don’t let the LGBT agenda a small percentage of public opinion influence. The argument of being born gay has been scientifically proven that there is no gay gene. This comes to no surprise to Christians who have always said that God did not create sin and instead Satan wants everyone to believe the lie! The truth is slow moving giving reason as to why the LGBT is eager to push gay marriage before it is widely known that being gay is a choice and not a virtue.
