Outrageous: 14-year-old boy suspended for saying homosexuality is wrong

Dakota Ary
Honor student Dakota
Ary, 14, punished for
saying the truth.
A Christian schoolboy was suspended from Western Hills High School in Texas for saying he thought that “being a homosexual is wrong.”


Can you believe this?

The boy’s name is Dakota Ary, and here is his story:

According to news reports, during a German class, Dakota’s teacher started talking about religion and homosexuality in Germany, and even posted a picture on the wall of two men kissing. 

Dakota turned to a friend and said he was a Christian and that “being a homosexual is wrong.”  The teacher reportedly overheard his comment and sent him to the principal's office.  Then, the assistant principal at Fort Worth’s Western Hills High School called Dakota’s mother and said her son was given an in-school suspension, plus two-days of full suspension for what he had said in class against homosexuality.

Send your instant e-protest to Western Hills High School 

After several protests, the school agreed to partially revoke the suspension so that Dakota could play in an upcoming football game.  But his mother wants the suspension to be completely eliminated from her son's school record, which is only natural, since he did nothing wrong.

Please send a peaceful protest message to the Western Hills High School, telling them that you also think that Dakota Ary did nothing wrong in expressing his belief that homosexuality is wrong.

God fearing Americans must speak out NOW, while they still have the freedom to do so.  Otherwise, everyone who disagrees with homosexual vice may soon be forced into silence.  And perhaps even punished.  Or jailed.  In fact, people in Canada and Sweden have already been arrested and jailed for speaking out against homosexual vice.  We must not let that happen in America.

I think this boy should not be punished for expressing his opinion, freedom of expression must be a right for everyone. He did not do anything in a rude or disrespectful way.

I guess next the school will adopt the swastika as its emblem on school materials.

How is it that the school is worried about
hurting someone's feelings -- and the feelings of those who have another opinion does not count?

This is un unbelievable infringement on the freedom of speech and common sense.
Interestingly today people can publicly and aggressively offend God or Jesus Christ without any legal or social repercussions however telling the truth about homosexuality (even without using any offensive language) can put you in trouble. Homosexuality IS a deviant behavior and sadly some people already managed to pervert the laws but thankfully the Truth cannot be perverted...

I would like to say that I think that this young man Dakota is to be commended for his brave public stance. He had every right to disagree with his teacher's ideology, even when he only expressed his thoughts to his classmate. When you hear something that just doesn't ring true, you must speak up and always in charity.

Where is the tolerance for Dakota's beliefs? If Dakota was suspended for saying something offensive, why is the school not suspending the teacher for saying something in class that was offensive to Dakota (and most likely others in class)? I am sick of those who preach tolerance, yet show zero tolerance for anyone who won't support the gay agenda being forced on all of us. We can't keep our mounths closed out of fear, and we need to fight the good fight - or we will be silenced i the near future by hate crime laws already in place and in the works.

I'm a retired Texas school administrator. The teacher's actions,and the school district's inactions, are wildly illegal. The US Supreme Court rules decades ago that "students do leave their constitutional rights at the school house door". The parents need to take the district to federal court and not to let up until the district squeals with pain and fear.

The teacher of the German language is expressing his opinion that homosexuality is "normal," but the student cannot express his opinion that it is wrong. This is clearly a case of double standard. And there is nothing that a young adult will rear up against faster than an adult in authority who displays a double standard.

Why should Dakota Ary be punished because he expressed his honest opinion? Why did the teacher send him to the Principal because he/she disagreed with his opinion? I think the teacher abused her authority and certainly infringed Dakota's freedom of speech.

Unless this punishment was given because he was speaking out of turn in class, which does not seem to be the case then the school must remove all punishment. The teacher is inappropriate for posting a picture and discussing this sensitive as though it is acceptable when it is offensive to all Christians. It is forgotten that this country was founded of freedom OF religion not freedom from religion.

How can you tell this country that we can no longer discuss God in school, and then speak about homosexuality? This young man is CORRECT! Homosexuality is clearly condemned by the Bible. It goes against God who created Adam, a man, and then made Eve, a woman. This is what God has ordained as the normal means by which we carry out his command to fill the earth. What God has set up is what is right not what man sets up. However, unlike other sins, homosexuality has a severe judgment administered by God. This judgment is simple: they are given over to their passions. As a result, they can no longer see the error of what they are doing, and then they go and promote it and condemn others who don't participate in their sin. So, without an awareness of their sin, there will be no repentance and trusting in Jesus. Without Jesus, they will have no forgiveness. Without forgiveness, there is no salvation. Without salvation, there is only damnation. Followers of Christ need to stand up!!!

School is a place where students are suppose to be molded with good human values. Homosexuality is evil and that should never be talked about in class, especially teachers. I think, the society is being corrupted and there is a big role the church can play in educating the society. I salute the TFP student movement in taking up the issue and we need more such organizations to raise voice against such evil things.

Since when does expressing a respectful opinion warrant being humiliated in class and then suspended? Speak up America. This type of situation is not only despicable, it is frightening.

Wow... yet let it be known that it is the homosexual act that is wrong. This is what this poor student was saying. We must, as St. Augustine says, hate the sin but love the sinner. This young man was brave to say what he did. May God give us the fortitude to do the same.

Dakota Ary is in the right and stood up for righteousness. The "liberalist ideologies" have numbed out and dumbed down society in this country. Liberalism adopts socialism. We have seen the results of socialism in the 20th century. Hate crime laws, equaility and just? For who? Those who want the Old Roman Empire back. Elitists educated into imbecility. Many school systems today have become liberal socialist puppets.

Of course, no one has the right to judge whether homosexuality is WRONG or RIGHT.
One may freely express his opinion on homosexuality, Christianity, or being Jew, NOT TO JUDGE whether it is right or wrong, please distinguish one thing from another.
Terrorist who aimed airplanes to the wtc buildings thought that being American is wrong, consider this.

I want to know this; how is it that a boy is suspended for saying something is wrong, when an adult shows teenagers what others may deem a precursor to a sexual act (which, under the law could be the corruption of a minor) and suffer no sanction?

Isn't it ironic that those who preach "tolerance" constantly, have little tolerance for Christians? Why was this teacher talking about gay issues in German class anyway? Shouldn't he be teaching the students German, instead of his homosexual agenda?

This is not a matter of the ethics of homosexuality, nor is it a matter of bravery for the student. It is simply a matter of freedom of speech. Anybody is allowed to voice their opinion in a public setting. Anything else is suppression. Let the teacher and the assistant principle and anyone else responsible be fired immediately.

This young man is absolutely right in his opinion. Homosexuality is wrong; sodomy is a perversion and lesbianism is completely unnatural. He will be rewarded by Our Lord Himself for defending Truth, even if lying and cowardly men punish him in this life now. This boy's parents should be very proud of him! Shame on his teacher!

Shame on the school principle.
First, there is freedom of speech
Secondly, If we all were homosexual, the world would not exist anymore. Therefore it's obvious that homosexuality is a disorder.
