[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]Memphis, TN - Attorneys for the American Civil Liberties Union say Daphne Beasley, the principal of Hollis F. Price Middle College High School in South Memphis, went way beyond her role as educator.
The ACLU says in September 2007, Beasley asked her staff to give her the names of students who were couples, heterosexual and homosexual, because she wanted to keep an eye on them to cut down on public displays of affection.
She’s accused of publicly posting the names of those students, including two boys, Andrew and Nicholas, who had just started dating. The ACLU says that in doing so, Beasley revealed their relationship to other students, teachers and even their parents. (1)
This is a story about a principle who is being coerced by the ACLU into ignoring instances of lewd depravity. According to the article, the ACLU is citing supposed violations of the students rights to “equal protection, freedom of expression and association, due process and privacy.” In reality all the ACLU is seeking to defend is a right to sodomy. This principle ought to be applauded for her brave decision to expose perverts to other students and their parents.
