How is it there are so many mothers here who see what happened in MA where Phoebe Prince was bullied to death, and decry the bullying and decry the parents who defend the bullies. Yet, at the same time, some of those same mothers defend their actions in teaching their children that homosexuality is wrong and disgusting and not to be accepted? What makes them any different than those horrible parents who raised the bullies in Phoebe's school?Answer Question

I don't see a double standard. Thinking something and doing something are completely different. I teach my kids that drugs are bad. That doesn't mean it's okay to pick on someone who uses them. I also teach my kids to treat people the way they want to be treated, so if my child decided to harass anyone for any reason and I found out about it, shit would hit the fan.
I've got to be honest though, I don't blame the bullies for the girl killing herself. She made the decision to take her own life. That was her choice. I think she was rotten selfish brat herself. How could you do that to your parents and loved ones?

I think schools should have mandatory tolerance classes.
I feel compelled to say that Christians believe that God has spoken on the issue and feel that HE is able to have the ultimate last word about it.
So for me, I can believe God, or I can believe you.
