Ending the petition drive

Mar 22, 2015 — As a result of the petition, Immaculata High School acknowledged the problem and decided to review their social media policy. Due to the media firestorm that occurred, the teacher was put on administrative leave. The fallout from this continues, so, although the petition drive is over, the story certainly is not.

Thank you all for supporting an end to hate speech. Many people have diverged from the intent of this petition which was to end hate speech. This isn't necessarily just a gay rights issue or religious issue, but it is an issue for all people. We have taken a stand and brought attention to an important subject: Intolerance should not be acceptable in a public forum, especially not by a teacher who could be alienating children at the school.
