[quote](AP) A school in Mississippi has called off the annual senior dance after a lesbian student demanded she be allowed to bring her girlfriend. The American Civil Liberties Union had demanded that the Itawamba County school district allow 18-year-old Constance McMillen to attend the prom with her date. A school board statement Wednesday announced the district wouldn't host the April 2 prom at Itawamba County Agricultural High School. McMillen wanted to escort her girlfriend, who is also a student. McMillen also was denied permission to wear a tuxedo. A school district policy requires that dates be of the opposite sex. The district's statement never mentioned McMillen's request. But officials said the change was made due to recent distractions. District officials say they hope private citizens will host a prom.

The question I have for you is this... Do you think that Constance McMillen should have been allowed to escort her girlfriend to the prom? If this was at your school, would you have a problem with it? If it were two guys, would you have a problem with it?

We live in a world full of weirdos, not only that, most cats will discriminate. They discriminate against race, sex, religion, even sexual orientation. Then again, we live in a world full of sin. Homosexuality is a sin yes, and personally, people in general, we treat others and condemn others like none other. School prom canceled over lesbian couple, in some way, it was a little ridiculous to cancel a school prom, but at the same time, it shows that the public school is willing to take a stand against homosexuality. Either that or they're "discriminating." What is this world coming to....
