Don't Erase David!

    1. Petition by



David Emerson graduated from Delaware Christian School in 2002, and has moved on to working as a successful radio DJ in the Columbus area.

Just a few months ago, David noticed that he had been deleted from the alumni page of his high school alma mater -- apparently at the direction of the principal, who had noticed on David's Facebook page that he identifies as gay.

While California is passing laws to require that textbooks include LGBT Americans, this school is hoping to erase us. David's a stand-up guy, making a living in radio at a time when that is increasingly difficult. He's a popular local personality and, until the principal stalked him via Facebook, he was featured as an alumnus of the school. Educators should be nurturing their students and their alumni, not harassing them online and removing them from the school's history!

When you add your name, an email will go to the school's main inbox -- making clear how many people are standing up in support of David and all other LGBT alumni of DCS. Sign our petition demanding that David be added back into the school's history!

      If being gay is a reason for banishment, then Delaware Christian needs to excude the other "sinners" among their alumni; the adulterers, the thieves, the liars, the deviants, and the non-believers.

      Keep fighting the good fight, David!!!

      because David IS a graduate of that school - why would they want to pretend he is not? He did NOT commit original sin for Heaven's sake, that was Adam and Eve and even they wouldn't have been erased had they attended the school!

      Add David back into your history. Or we should delete your school and all of it's Alumni from all of history! Every pro gay employer should not hire any of your school's alumni until the school does the right thing. Your school should loose it's accreditation.

      People should not be allowed to use their own petty prejudice to hurt other people. David has the same rights as every other Delaware Christian School graduate and his name must be included in the historical records.

      God loves everyone, including the LGBT community. What he doesn't like is people being judgemental, sinning, and spreading hate. Regardless of what our sins may be, He still loves us because we are ALL His children. It's called a Bible, you should read it sometime :)
