Talk about bullying: Pro-homosexual teacher bullies Catholic student

By William Stover   
May 03, 2012

The latest video released by the Marriage Anti-Defamation Alliance reports how Daniel Glowacki, a 16-year-old junior at Howell High School in Michigan, was persecuted for refusing to go along with the homosexual agenda in class.

Daniel’s economics teacher, Jay McDowell, queried his students about their position regarding homosexuality.  As a Catholic, Daniel responded that he followed Church teaching on the issue.

Daniel Glowacki
God bless
Daniel Glowacki.

According to the interview, the pro-homosexual teacher had a fit. “He said we lost our right to free speech when we stepped inside his classroom,” said Daniel Glowacki. “I’ve never really been yelled at by a teacher like that before, so when he started yelling at me, I was just kind of in shock.”

The Thomas More Law Center is representing the boy in a lawsuit against the local school district and the offending teacher. 

There are other incidents worthy of mention.  A 14-year-old girl in Maryland, Sarah Crank, received death threats for testifying in favor of traditional marriage and TFP Student Action volunteers released a 17-minute video documentary called Attacked by "Tolerance," highlighting cases of pro-homosexual violence experienced during peaceful rallies for God-ordained marriage.

My dear Daniel, thanks a lot for standing up for God. It's said that evil prevails because the good people did nothing. I'll keep u in my prayer. Your Mum is commendable because she raised you in God and to also stand boldly for what you believe in. Remain blessed

Dear Daniel, you are not alone because Jesus did promise John 14.23 - "Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him". May you and your family be blest abundantly for standing up for what we believe. Marianna

HURRAY FOR YOU DANIEL! Sounds like you are in the Lion's Den, but the Good News is, God is with you! I am glad that you were respectful and didn't call your teacher names like he did to you. We need more Daniel's in our world. You are a great Catholic Christian example to your peers and the rest of the world. I just can't believe the teacher carried on like that and told lies. We need to pray for him! Keep up the good work and give your mom an extra hug and kiss for instilling Catholic values in your family. God bless you all.

Daniel, I am ashamed to say I live in Michigan. Your teacher is a Catholic? Not really, he was baptized, that's all. i am sorry that you have to be bullied because you are following Our Lord. My grandson got a failing grade at UM because he wrote an essay of why he was pro life. He was never able to regain his self esteem because she said his essay was that of a second grader.
She ridiculed him for his firm stand on life.

LORRAINE Your grandson is the adult here and his teacher is mental, he has no ability to be logical. Schools need to teach logic as there is a large group that are clueless and just don't have the ability to get it.

Lorraine, the teacher is not Catholic, Daniel is Catholic and a good one at that. You did just what the Holy Father said we should do and Our Lord proclaimed; Go out into the world and share the light!! Only you didn't start all the trouble. The teacher did and now look what he has done. Lie and lie again! He should be made to appologize to you in front of the class and if he were "MAN" enough, he would do just that. I'm sorry for you and your family for the unjust way the school handled everything. THE SHAME IS ON jay mcdowell AND YOUR school. GOD'S PEACE BE WITH YOU.

That teacher was definitely bullying Daniel. How dare he try to force his own beliefs about homosexuality on students, and then be hypocritical by not letting a Catholic state his personal beliefs!!! What kind of "teacher" is that? The mother was right, why are they not teaching the class subject? FREE SPEECH MEANS PEOPLE WILL DISAGREE BUT CAN AGREE TO DISAGREE!!!!!

Daniel, hang in there, the Lord is with you. Unfortunately this is what the world has come to by rejecting the saving grace of Jesus Christ. You, sir are as your confirmation proclaims, "A Soldier in Christ's Army". He will never leave you or forsake you. The Truth will be vindicated. You are in my prayers and so is your family, as Jesus said "in this world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer I have overcome the world" God is raising up a generation who will be steadfast in their faith and honor God by their lives. You are a part of that great awakening. Thank you for your courage and faithful witness.

Hi Daniel. I get slammed all the time on Facebook and in person for "standing up" for our Catholic faith. So I know what you're going through. We're in a spiritual war bro! Just remember "Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you" (Matt 5:11-12).

Daniel ... you are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Himself! We we will continue to pray for you. Don't give up. Just know there are many more of us doing exactly what you're doing - and that's lovingly spreading the Good News (even if it has to hurt people!)

The school board should have fired that teacher. That sort of thing has no place in the classroom. Interesting how the teacher has a right to free speech but no one else does. This IS a REPUBLIC and it's supposed to be governed by law and the Constitution. This young man has a legal right to stand up for what he believes. Those who have slandered him and his mother should be held accountable.

It is unfortunate that our society is upside-down right now, but take heart in the notion that Christ himself said, "Blessed are you when they persecute you for My sake." Your example will no doubt inspire others to speak up for the truth, which is what our world really needs.

Hi, Daniel. Thank you for speaking up. It's clear that your teacher only wanted to identify students who didn't think like him so he could bully them into thinking like him. And also, to intimidate others to "get in line".

Speaking truth is often a difficult thing. But with confidence and hope you can continue the race to the end, knowing Christ will purify you.

We need many more young people like yourself who are not afraid to speak up for traditional Christian values May God bless you.

May we all follow your brave example that God may forgive our faults by being courageous people for life.

God bless you for defending His law. You are not a bully and you do not hate gays, you simply know that it is not a life style that is good for people, physically or spiritually.
You have been persecuted as Jesus said His followers would in the Gospel. I will pray for you and your family, but we must also pray for your persecutors that they have a change of mind and heart.
Be strong and all will be well!Hope and trust in the Lord!

Daniel, I am reminded of Ezekiel 3:5-8
"Not to a people with difficult speech or barbarous language am I sending you, nor to the many peoples whose words you cannot understand. If I were to send you to these, they would listen to you; but the house of Israel will refuse to listen to you , since they will not listen to me. For the whole of Israel is stubborn of brow and obstinate of heart. But I will make your face as hard as theirs and your brow as stubborn as theirs, like diamond, harder then flint. Fear them not nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house."
God picked you Daniel and family and He will see you through. Be at peace. He will not let you fall. But waits for you with a crown of glory. Jesus loves you and so do we.

The law proscribes attacks on homosexual individuals just as it proscribes attacks on alcoholics, prostitutes, etc. So does the Bible. The law does NOT proscribe free speech against homosexuality, and remains the #1 cause of HIV in the U.S. The press and this administration are doing a great job of blurring the line but surely attorneys can point this reality out. Catholics/Christians can retaliate by cutting off their Cable subscriptions en masse. Time to act and remove the poison from your homes.

You clearly don't understand nor have a clue as to HOW WRONG that so called teacher was. Anyone who believes in Jesus and tries to stand up for their own beliefs is NOT wrong..... It not just one teacher, its what HE IS DOING in the classroom that is wrong. Its the every day bombardment of how tolerance comes out of the Homosexual community's mouth, but does not practice it. Tolerance is WAY DIFFERENT than Acceptance! I can tolerate you being gay, but that doesn't mean that I have to accept it! I agree with Daniel, and if I were their in his class I would stand right next to him! I'm so tiered of the gay movement constantly PUSHING that their lifestyle is acceptable... Well I'm telling you that if your gay, then be gay, BUT DON'T YOU DARE TRY TO TELL ME THAT I HAVE TO ACCEPT IT AND BE OKAY WITH IT WHEN I BELIEVE IT IS 100% WRONG... Its a classroom to teach, not to convert.... So that teacher should be suspended or fired!

Daniel what your teacher did is completely wrong & immoral. He should not have picked on you the way he did. You have every right to speak your opinion. You do not lose your right to free speech (at least not yet) just because you step into a classroom of someone who has different views. That teacher is abusing his power. Straight people aren't supposed to speak their minds & voice their opinions, but gay people can, according to them, & how things are transpiring. May God help this country in it's moral & financial decline. Daniel, you keep up your stand on traditional marriage. If the student had worn something showing they agree with the teacher's belief, I'll bet that would have been fine. He should stick to the curriculum & teach what he's supposed to, & leave his personal beliefs that have nothing to do with the class itself, out of the classroom. God Bless you Daniel, & may God help you in your fight for justice in this case.

Everything that teacher is accusing you of is really just what he is guilty of---not what you are guilty of. He is only angry about the truth because you are standing up for the truth. And you are doing it in a gentle Christ-like way. He is the one with the problem. I'll pray for your situation. The LORD is smiling down on you and will give you strength.

That teacher should resign because he has bullied and denied his students their Constitutional Rights. He does not belong in a classroom where unique and diverse beliefs, cultures and opinions are not respected.

I am a teacher of over 30 years and I would never consider putting down or bullying a student for their beliefs or opinions even though they were not mine.

The teacher must be an example of tolerance and respect for freedom and freedom of speech with dignity (for all).

Dear Daniel,

I am proud of you for standing up to for your beliefs, not arguing, and walking out of that classroom. It is unfortunate that the teacher and other students had to lie about what really happened in the classroom in order to look good, but you were and are the better person. You accept that there are people who do not really understand the immorality about the homosexual lifestyle and that will never change, but just because they do not understand, does not mean that you need to change what you say, do or believe to make them feel like what they are doing or believe in is not wrong. There is such a thing as right and wrong, good and evil, but people are trying to ignore all of that and want others to accept their sins and immoral behavior when it is wrong. Please always remember that God is on your side and He faced way more than what you are facing. He will make you stronger and stand by your side, especially when you are defending Him.

It will only become more difficult to stand up for Christ in the days to come, but we are very near the end so hang in there. God will be with you always, just as he was with the Prophets but that does not keep EVIl from coming after God's chosen one's , in fact it's just the opposite. Satan doesn't go after what he already has.

Daniel, even if you can't see the victory through all the biased propaganda, it is there. You have won a victory for God. And, as I'm sure you (and your mother) are having difficulties right now, I'd like to offer some interesting advice that I recently learned. Remember that the saints remind us that suffering helps with our salvation. When people make us suffer, "the way to find peace is to pray for that person and ask God to reward him or her for making you suffer." (St. Therese of Lisieux) Of course, his/her reward would be conversion and being led closer to God. A calm and loving response will only add to your victory. This hate from pro-homosexuals "is allowing you to grow in patience." (Fr. Joseph Esper) God bless you for your bravery. You will be in my prayers.

Be filled with joy, for just as Jesus is hated by the world, so too are his true friends. You are a friend of Jesus Christ and you will continue to carry this cross of love and friendship with God. Remain faithful and stedfast in your relationship with Jesus your friend. You will be hated by the world, but loved by God... Ken

Daniel, We support you 100%. What you experienced is White martyrdom- no blood, but much pain standing up for your faith nonetheless. Thank you for leading the way by being an example and standing up for what you believe in. I know we will all be called to even more martyrdom for our faith in the years ahead. God is with you- keep him close. Rose & fam.

Daniel, you did the right thing, and it may be a while before you realize that what you did made a better, stronger person out of you. God bless you.

As to the post by church v state on 5/155 at 11:55, baloney: It was not a case of a teacher "having a bad day," it was a case of a homosexual or homosexualist following the plan laid out with the purpose of making homosexuality look like just another way of living, when in fact, it is a perversion that spreads disease.

Good for you Daniel. But, your situation underscores the desperate need we have in this country for vouchers so that all students may attend the private school of their choice. It's time to get government out of education. It's too easy to become "Big Brother" when you control what our children can learn.

Daniel and Ann...This is such sad news that a grown man would attack you for your religious belief. I am sure it was devastating for the attack on you and your family. We have to remember that it is not the sinner but the sin which Jesus told us is wrong. We have to pray for your teacher and all those who are misguided and do not understand. I pray for peace for you, your mother and family. I hope a Catholic school would open their doors for you as we as parishioners pay to kids who cannot afford to go no matter what their financial circumstances. God Bless you all.

Dear Daniel,
Thank you for being so courageous and standing up for your beliefs. I'm so sorry that you were subjected to such bullying. It is particularly heinous that this was done to you by a teacher - a person who is supposed to have your best interests at heart and who is supposed to set an example for you. God loves you and you will receive your reward - no doubt about it. With love and prayers for you, Jeanie Pinkerton

My 15 year old son had to attend a public high school after nearly 3 years of attending Catholic school because the nearest Catholic high school is a 100 miles away. His Catholic and conservative beliefs and views have been less than tolerated to the point that his Mom and I had to meet with his English/Humanities teacher to discuss his frustrations and fears. This doesn't surprise me. Soon it will be bullying to condemn a sex offender in this country.

Right will never be wrong and wrong will never be right. We Catholics that have the courage to defend our Lord Jesus Christ, can expect more and more persecution, because the devil is out with his evil claws and he has caught so many of God's children already. Even though it is difficult, Pray for them, because God is sad that he is losing so many of His children to the evil one.

Daniel,
Do not let this in any way interfere with you pursuit of an education. You and your mother have both taken a very gutsy stance on this issue. I only wish this teacher could be dismissed because what he did was in no way the act of a competent educator. Where is his tolerance for other opinions? To say that you do not have a right to express your free speech in his class is a very ignorant statement. Hateful rhetoric for the values of Catholic and other Christians is becoming acceptable in this country, and we all need to stand up for who we are immediately. Economics as a course should in no way be addressing issues of sexuality. I sincerely hope that appropriate legal action is brought against this person before he victimizes someone else. If you are feeling traumatized in any way by this experience, there are obviously many people out there available for support. I hate to see a cowardly adult use their position of power to bully a youth.

But with all of the people who commented and you and I will will not go down without a fight. Let me know what I can do. I myself do not hate people who have that orientation in them but I do hate the sin and what they are doing to us because we disagree with them. Freedom of speech is an amendment and we also have the right to say how we feel not only the others. Do not go back on what you said. You are living the Lord's way. Remember He is the Way.

Daniel! I taught university students from all over the world. It was not uncommon to have Asians, Arabs, South Americans, Europeans in one classroom...They were full of history and historical gripes, so coming into a place of tolerance and peace in a classroom environment was essential. Any teacher who states that freedom ends within his classroom is noting less than a fool and an idiot! He has no business teaching...he is a propagandist and belongs in the street spouting his deceptions. You are in the right. You are the one who has free speech and were brave to support your own integrity. Sadly, that teacher needs to get the boot...no place for that kind of insensitivity and sexism, racism, religious intolerance....and this is not uncommon with many in the gay community... Standing up for your Catholic belief system was honorable and courageous and you are on the side of integrity and honesty. YOU ROCK!!!

I'm proud of you for standing for you believe a lot Catholics would not have done what you did. You did what our Lord wants us to do not be ashamed of the faith. These people who are practicing this SIN do not realize they are condemning themselves. They have the right to do what they want and WE as faithful Catholics have the right to stand for what we believe. I'll keep you and your mom in my prayers. God is with you.

Daniel, I am so proud of you and I promise to keep you, and your beautiful mom, and your family in my Masses, prayers, and rosaries. Remember the rosary is a sword against the devil. Say it daily. Jesus will help you. Learn the St. Michael prayer it is very powerful against the devil. I am sorry that you and your sweet family are under attack. You are learning a hard lesson early in life. What ever happened to freedom of speech. I am so disgusted of the press allowing anything to be said, except when it comes to religious freedom-then nothing is published. It is biased, and so is our world. You are very young to learn this lesson, but Jesus came to show us that unfortunately, happiness is not of this world, however there is a heaven and a hell, you're headed for heaven and so is your dear mom, keep up the great work. I'm reading a book about heaven, and believe me it shares true stories of people who have died and returned. Wow, heaven is beyond all of our dreams. Hang in there.

I'm on your side bigtime, Daniel. Kids like you will some day be considered the heroes of our time. The devil seems to have our nation in his grip but the Lord will have the last say. We must all hang together or hang separately. I live in a town that is ultra liberal and it's hard to be respected if you speak in defense of Christian theology. Let's continue the fight since we know that God is smiling upon us as we battle the evils of our day.

We are to know love and serve Him here on earth so we can be happy with Him in heaven. Keep on Keeping On! I am sure He is very pleased with you. I will keep you in my prayers and you stop any worrying you might be doing and just say "God I put this problem into your hands. I trust that you will look after it all." God Bless your whole family.

You have my deepest admiration and indeed you are a rare gem. So young and yet you spoke out for your Catholic belief in marriage. Earnestly I urge you - Go Daniel go! Fearlessly go forward to defend marriage. God bless both you and your mother, Sandy. I will pray for both of you. St Michael shield and protect you from all evil. Jesus and Mary love both you and your mother. May the love, joy and peace or our Lord reign in your hearts.

Dear Daniel and Sandra,
THe way you have handled this incident so far is exemplary since you chose not to be violent but silent and ask for help to the right people. As a mother and teacher I share your sentiments and thoughts. This teacher has gone too far since he has made you Daniel a target for future bullying not only at school by in other places. I understand perfectly your mother's tears: we love our children and we do not want them to be victims of any kind of violence and Bullying is a terrible act even more when it comes from people or places that we tend to think are save for our sons and daughters. When something like this happens again or feel in danger, please Daniel, pray to Saint Michael the Archangel with all your heart and soul and be sure he will protect you.

In the upcoming lawsuit charges could be made againts this teacher as a Hate crime. After all is the general public can be charged for a hate crime by calling someone for racial slurs, then it would also stand to reason that because your Catholic and that teacher does not allow you to practice your beliefs because of your faith then Hate is to motivation for this attack on you.

Hi, Daniel, I am proud of you for standing up for the Catholic faith. You did the right thing. I heartily commend you for it. Jesus said, "'If they hate you know that they hated me first."' Jesus also said that when someone travels down the narrow road, he will find it to be bumpy and difficult to travel, but it is the road that leads to eternal life, whereas the wide road is smooth, paved and many choose to take it, but beware, as it is also the road that leads to perdition. I sincerely believe Jesus is proud of you also for taking the narrow road.God Bless you and your mother, Daniel.

Dear Mrs. Glowacki and Daniel,

When you are close to God, the devil has to do everything he can to wear you down and attack. I felt so bad when I saw tears in Mrs. Glowacki's eyes. I know you don't want your son to be attacked, but I believe it is important for you to start thinking of this in another way. Please use this experience to build up your strength and recognize that Daniel has been chosen for this battle between good and evil. Daniel is part of God's plan for a very important battle not only in his school but within the whole church. Many Catholics are allowing themselves to be bullied into accepting gay marriage because they are afraid of what their friends will think of them if they don't. God bless you both. I pray for God's suit of armour for both of you.

He had no right to bring his personal agenda into an economics class. As a teacher, I'm appalled by his lack of professionalism, his abuse of a student, and his opportunistic attack on a minor to advance his own bigotry against Catholics. He should be fired. God is with you, Daniel. He will not leave you by yourself, to be devoured by the devil. And make no mistake: that is whom you're dealing with here. God knows, and sees, and will protect you. I will keep you in my prayers.

I commend you for standing up for the gospel message, and you have many that are praying for you. Stay strong, you are in a spiritual battle, Satan hates marriage so he has many in his clutches. A good book to read is "The Marketing of Evil" to understand how homosexuality has been marketed for the past 30 years or so. Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Light, and He will be your shield! God bless you and your mom for your courage! Praying Psalm 91 for you!

Dear Daniel,

This must be a very difficult situation for you. Thank you for having the courage to stand with our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church for sexual morality.

Your teacher's hysterical and intimidating reaction to your beliefs shows that militant homosexual advocacy isn't about tolerance, inclusion, and diversity -- rather, it's about domination and bullying.

As one who has also experienced hostility because of the Christian faith, I encourage you to pray for the conversion of your teacher, since the only way to deal with rage and hate is to show forth God's love.

Daniel, I pray that you will stay close to the Lord and always uphold the treasure of His love and truth. Our future depends on it.

Daniel: As a Catholic citizen I feel very proud of you. You defended our basic principle of democracy; liberty of speech. People have the right to choose in what they want to believe; but they do not have the right to impose their wrong or twisted ideas on us. They have to respect us and our believes if they want us to respect theirs. "Where my rights end is where other's rights begin."
May the Holy Spirit keep guiding you and telling you what to say and when to say it.
May God bless you and your family now and always. Never give up, always fight for Jesus Christ!

Hi Daniel,

You are an amazing young man. Most would cave under such pressure, but your courage to stand firm in your Catholic beliefs sets you apart from others. The battle lines are being drawn, and you have shown which side you are standing on. I am so impressed with you and your mom. We will lift you up in prayer, as I am sure it is very difficult to receive this slanderous attention.

May you find consolation in Jesus, who was persecuted for his message so long ago. I pray for warrior angels to stand guard around you and your family. God bless you for your fine example!

Daniel: A lot more people should be defending their principles and their believes but unfortunately very few are doing something to protect their rights and the democracy in this country.
That teacher should be fired from that school and forbiden to teach in any other school. He was not allowing you the right of speech but he certainly had it and in a "bulling way".
God bless you,

We need to keep fighting against the take over of our souls by these evil demons, yes I said demons, that is what they are. Keep fighting the good fight, your in my prayers especially the Rosary.

Daniel - hang in there and stay focused on YOU. Your teacher stepped over the line and he will have to deal with the backlash on thos one. What goes around comes around, and his flagrant disrespect for your civil rights should be grounds for immediate dismissal. I wonder just how many other students in your class who witnessed this persons childish behavior, are terrified of what else will spew from his mouth. I am glad to see that the Thomas More Law Center is behind you on this. They are very good and will take the appropriate measures to make sure this fellow or any other person like him, ever does this again to you or anyone else.

God Bless you Daniel. You are a very strong person to defend the faith. God loves you more than you can imagine. You do not deserve to be treated in such an inhumane way; that teacher should be ashamed and removed from working with children. Remember the suffering our Lord when through to save us. Remember His most difficult command: to love our enemies. I myself find this so hard to do. Behaving like a Catholic is acting the way God intended for us. Christ is God and also the perfect human, whom we should do our best to emulate, however difficult this is. Behaving in ways that contradict His teachings, reduce us to materialistic animals. This is how that man behaved toward you. Rise above that and love your enemies.

Daniel,
Don't ever give up. In 1995 and 2000 as a teacher I was suspended without pay for one week each time for standing up for my religious convictions as a Roman Catholic. The NEA, MTA teacher's union supports abortion rights and condom distribution, so the law does allow me to give my union dues to a charity instead of the union. I refused payment to them and was suspended. I ended up going to U.S. District Court and won my case. I was allowed to give my monies to a charity rather than support that union which supports abortion rights...with my money? No way. Good luck.

I will pray for you and all Christians who have not forgotten Christ and his teachings. Granted that even though Jesus did remain silent on the subject of homosexuality the old Testament did not!

Hang in there, you are doing God's work. He will get you through. Good things will come of this and maybe some souls will be saved. There are a lot of us out there that are on your side, even though right now it seems like the opposite is true. The people fighting us react with such incredible anger because deep down they are unsettled and not really happy with the way they are living. I wish we could just have the chance to explain why traditional marriage is such a precious gift. It is not that we hate people with same sex attraction. It is actually quite the opposite..Remember, this is bringing you closer to heaven.

you are brave to stand up for what you know and belief to be true about homosexuality. The pro-homosexual has no REASON to stand up for their degraded lifestyle, hence, all they can do is spout hatred by calling you a bigot and racist. Ignore them and don't think too much of their name calling because you did nothing wrong, but feel sorry for them that they are shrouded in darkness and cannot find the light.

As committed Catholics we must recognize your inner strength in you standing up to a person-I refuse to use the word man to describe McDowell-who is a coward and a bully. He is merely using his position of authority and implicit trust granted to him within a broken system to poison innocent and malleable minds of our children in a totally amoral campaign to legitimize an aberrant lifestyle. Daniel, hold strong and know that many thousands of God fearing men and women are supporting and praying for you. Hold the faith and May God be with you.

Daniel, with respect and civility, let others know that: For a Christian, homosexual acts are wrong, just as heterosexual acts are wrong outside marriage and before marriage. The only thing is that a Christian with homosexual tendencies cannot get married and therefore has to live a celibate chaste life throughout.

The Catholic Church in CCC 2358 affords each and every individual regardless of one's sexual orientation, respect and dignity, loving the person, but, abhoring the sin.

Be strong. You did nothing wrong. You were asked a question and answered it respectfully. It just was not the answer that he wanted you to have.Oppression. Indoctrination. Thats what this teacher is teaching. People who are afraid of the truth are usually the ones holding power that came about from lies. Know that many are supporting you in your stand. You are not alone. God Bless.

Hi Daniel, thank you for standing for the teachings of Jesus, to Love our neighbors as our self. That means to correctly state the Truth as Jesus spoke it, to follow the Father's commandments. It is by following the commandments that we love our neighbor, because who wants to see our neighbor in darkness and lies of the evil one, when the Truth and Love of our Almighty God is found so easily. Love of neighbor is critical step to love. We don't let our neighbor continue to any act if it is going to continue to hurt them, just as real as if they were cutting themselves. We instead speak the Truth in Love and humbleness. If that Love is not accepted then we leave the person and move on to the next neighbor. The teacher wants to continue to love his false gods of self satisfaction and deny God, that is sad, but his choice. We can only pray that there was a seed of Truth planted and one day it will grow until he sees the light of Love. God bless you. Keep up the great work of Love.

God bless you both! You are in my prayers. I will leave you with a passage that has always comforted me and most likely is present in our comments already.

"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you.” John 15:18-20

Oh my God. did God not say that sometimes when you stand up for him you will be helping him carry his cross. I am soooooo proud of you and your mom. Do not hate these people. Instead pray for their souls. They are lost. Continue to stand firm for God is so proud of you. God bless you and your family.

Stay strong, "no weapon formed against you shall prosper" Isaiah 54:17 and if God is for you who can be against you. Look at Psalms 27 and Psalm 91 read it out loud everyday it will strengthen you.

Daniel it is hard sometimes to stand up for your beliefs but you did the right thing and you were respectful and it is a shame that the teacher was so inconsiderate. When people wrong you pray for them. That is the way Jesus was treated so you are in good company. God Bless you.

Daniel did what was right. The queer teacher is wrong. This type of bullying done by this queer teacher is an example of what legally will be common if America does not stand up now against the perverting of America by homosexuals.

I thought the bullying of Teachers of the students in their charge had been legislated against years ago. Is it because this particular teacher is a homosexual that he is allowed to flout the law?
How long is this ridiculous situation going to develop before civilisation crumbles and anarchy ensues
Parents and concerned people must rise up against this man, his like and the schools who protect them lest our children spend their days in fear and misery and your own spent in distress for them

Daniel, be strong. As Daniel in the bible was faithful in a pagan culture you will also have some trials. but the same God will deliver you and bless many because of you. You inspire me (age 56) and I pray for you. I do not have that quiet courage. Your mom is also an inspiration. she should never feel bad that you are not in Catholic school. Many of those students would not do what you have done. god bless you and your family.

I am so heartbroken for what they are doing to you and the lies they are spreading about you but remember that JESUS is always with you protecting you! I am so upset but we need to remember that Prayer is power and I will pray for you and your family! I think of my own children standing up for God's virtues and can't imagine people being so mean and cruel and nasty. But the world will go against us who believe in God! You are brave and God will reward and bless you! You are a hero and a good example of how good Catholics should be! Keep strong and know that there are so many families like mine who support you and who are praying for you and your mom! May God send Michael the Archangel to protect and you and your family!!

Daniel,this is a BIG test for any Catholic! I cannot Heep enough praise on you. Remember, Jesus has never abandoned us, it is we who abandon Him. All Catholics are called to bare witness to Him. You have started on you're own path to "Sainthood". Though you only wanted to be like other kids you're age,YOU have found FAVOR with GOD!!!! A word of advice. when ever you are "down", Lean on GOD and PRAY! There are many of us in our own spiritual battles, but with GOD we are never alone and we are one with Him! Remember, PERSEVERE and GOD will guide YOU. GOD Bless, Don Wells

Daniel,
You absolutely did the right thing by witnessing to Christ and to your Catholic faith. Your teacher asked you the question and you answered it according to your belief, which I am sure is much more informed than his, thanks to your mother bringing you up in the faith. Your teacher is on this earth because he was loved into existence by God. His every breath is granted by God, and yet he feels he is his own God, picking and choosing his own moral code -- the one he is the most comfortable with. This is what most people do when they want nothing demanded or expected of them. This whole attitude is born out of a false ego, an inflated sense of self, and pure human laziness. He wants what he wants and will probably never pick up a Bible or the Catachism of the Catholic Church to understand the teachings of the apostolic faith which has been handed down through the generations directly from Christ for 2000 years! Very few things last that long unless they are absolutely true.

Daniel, You and your mum are the real heroes in this sad scenario. This attitude is all over; dominated by the media as they try to portray this sick lifestyle as being the norm, whilst the majority are not for it. No letter of mine trying to push for the decent alternative to abortion or homsexuality is ever published. These are the times we're living in and it's not going to get any better... we will have to be "as sly as foxes and gentle as doves" as the persecution continues. No matter what happens, the truth will always prevail...and OUR LORD will triumph. Just continue being prayerful and witness as the SPIRIT prompts you. OUR GOD IS GOOD...HE will not fail you even if death comes. May OUR LORD bless you always.

Daniel,

I am a Catholic from Singapore.
I will remember you in my prayers.
Pray for that teacher who persecuted you.

For Jesus said "But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you." Mt. 5:43 "The prayer of a righteous man has great power in its effects" Jas. 5:16

Look what happen to Saul after St Stephen prayed when he was being stoned to death.

This is yet another proof that our Republic, built on biblical principles, no longer exists. It was supplanted by an anti-Christian empire in which we are prosecuted for our beliefs. The Constitutional rights to be free from institutional prohibitions against our free exercise of religion, to be free from abridgments to our freedom of speech, and all other constitutional rights. I'm proud of your willingness to stand up for what is right! May God bless you and your family during this difficult time. I will pray for you and for all who are willing to stand up for what's right.

Keep up the good fight for true justice and what is right, Glowackis. I'm sorry you have to endure this, but please remember you will be blessed for this persecution. Don't lose heart. There are many who stand behind you and are proud of you standing by your beliefs. Nothing you said was judgmental or defamatory. It was a simple question. In the so called "Land of the Free" you have a right to your own beliefs. Even if it wasn't government legislated it is still your right as a human, even though it meets unjust persecution.

The only way this agenda will win overall is through lies. Any contradiction threatens them and instead of using logic and striving to find more ways of legitimately defending their beliefs or countering you in debate, they resort to lies, b/c they know that's all they can win with. He got the jump on you, b/c he knew that was the way to win, both for the cause and to look good (fearing his stance may be challenged). .......

.....He got the jump on you by winning over the media in reaching out on to them over a hot topic that many are conditioned through repetition to support. No one is allowed to hold beliefs that are not of popular opinion or you are a bigot. Thank you for holding true to them anyway, esp. at an age where you are already challenged in confidence (high school are genuinely the toughest years).

May God bless you and your loved ones with the graces you need to carry this cross and stand true for what He asks of us. Thank you for your witness in this relativistic society.

Dear Daniel and parents:

You must be realizing by now that your with, and subsequent harassment due to a bigoted teacher who was way out of line, and should be relieved of his position if he maintains such classroom behavior.

The teacher had NO right to bring up this subject in an Economics class. You were totally right to voice your faith belief and that should have ended it.

I will tell you this in utter confidence. You have the Truth on your side, because you are thinking the way God Thinks. This is why the rabid homosexual mind gets furious when confronted with the Truth. They can not bear to face the fact they are wrong. I spent most of my adult life as a therapist and can tell you that pride is at the core of prejudice and hate.

Let's pray for Mr. McDowell.

In the meantime, stay true to your Catholic beliefs and practices. They will be of real help to you in this life and carry you to heaven.

Shalom,
Jack Land Ph.D.
