The Indiana school district that made headlines when a group of students called for a "traditional" prom sans gay dates is doing what they can to make up for it by suspending a teacher who made anti-gay statements in support of the dance.
Special education teacher Diana Medley, received the most criticism for her comments, saying she believed gays had no purpose in life.
"We don't agree with [homosexuality], and it's offensive to us," said Medley. "Homosexual students come to me with their problems, and I don't agree with them, but I care about them. It's the same thing with my special needs kids. I think God puts everyone in our lives for a reason...I honestly don't [think gays have a purpose]. Sorry, but I don't. I don't understand it. A gay person isn't going to come up and make some change unless it's to realize that it was a choice and they're choosing God."
