County school officials are backing a principal’s decision to bar a picture of a lesbian student dressed in a tuxedo from the high school yearbook.
Others applauded Ward’s decision, including Karen Gordon, who said, “When uniformity is compromised, then authority no longer holds.”
What bizarre Big Brother-ish authoritarian doublespeak. Do not question. Do not deviate from Christian fundamentalist edicts (no matter how bigoted and contrary to the actual teachings of Christ they may be.) It should come as no surprise that this particular school is in Florida, that land of extremist Christianity and stolen elections.
The student editor of the yearbook, Keri Sewell, was fired after refusing her adviser’s order to take the picture out.
