I prefer to stay as far away from peoples’ sacred, intimate relations as possible, but the XXX stuff is back in my face with the recent actions taken at Lake Lure Classical Academy not to discriminate against a LGBT club. The school is K-12, and that has parents saying the club is causing them to enter into discussions not age-appropriate for their children. Others argue high school kids should be hitting the books rather than getting together to discuss an f-word with three syllables. Proponents of the club say it exists only to help children be safe from bullying.

The LLCA school board voted 5-3 on November 12 to temporarily suspend extracurricular clubs until a policy committee can obtain legal guidance and bring a plan back to the board.
