While touring the web I come to witness a perfect example of The Big Lie. Seem the rapacious religious right has no moral qualms about the use of hyperbole or out right Lies.
Tolerance is not negotiable. Bullies are not good, right or even moral. Bullies abusing anyone be they, geeks, gay, nerd, poor, shy, or whatever should have no place to hide. They are about power and control, they live for fear induced in others. They are criminals. Those that suggest not squelching those activities are criminals as are those the "look the other way".
Bottom line, schools should be safe and promote education, not hives of petty criminals
maintaining their domains like prisons.
