Formation of Homosexual Student Club At High School Not Easily Accepted

The Lubbock Public School System in Texas, is being sued by 18-year-old Rene Caudillo for objecting formation of homosexual club at his high school.



However, Judy Strickland who was a former member of the Texas State Board of Education along with many residents in the conservative west Texas community strongly object to the idea of forming homosexual student group.



Strickland has been actively asserting her views on the issue of homosexuality. She feels America has been “just rolling over and saying, 'Well OK, just let people do whatever they want to.'"



"I called and just lent my support to them because very few school districts seem willing to take on a battle like this," Strickland says. "This is a fight for the well-being of our children."



Strickland believes that by accepting formation of homosexual student groups, it will to promote the wider acceptance of homosexuality. She thinks it is crucial for other believers to speak up against what is happening. "Stand up and be counted. Support these people who are taking on these issues," she says.



"It's deplorable that we as Christians are sitting back and letting this small minority just move like gangbusters," she says, "and of course, with the very sad ruling of the sodomy law in Texas's Supreme Court, they are moving very rapidly."



Strickland strictly considers the issue of allowing homosexual student club as something that must be decided locally by the people of Lubbock rather than by a federal judge.
