“Yes. Let the school show its true colors. At least people will see what they’re all about — how completely wrong they are. Then, efforts can be made to have other students voluntarily withdraw. I wouldn’t shed a tear if [the school] shuts down.”

Tiffani Dunschee
resident counselor | Germantown
“Yes. When it’s a private school, you can’t say too much to them. If I had a gay child, I wouldn’t send them to a place where they’re not wanted; that could encourage suicide. I saw a movie about something like that. The child needs to be in an environment that’s open and supportive.”

Christina Gethers

“No. God loves everybody. Nobody should be excluded because of their sexual preference. I don’t agree with any religion that would expel a lesbian or gay man from a school. They should be put out of business.”

Freddie Ortiz
cosmetologist | Northern Liberties
“No. Everyone should be treated equal. There’s no excuse for discrimination. The school needs to change; otherwise, close them down. Religion should have nothing to do with a person’s education.”
