Pro-gay Teacher Bullies Christians on Anti-bullying Day

Wearing a homosexualist T-shirt, economics teacher Jay McDowell dedicated an entire school day in 2010 to pushing the Gay Agenda at Howell, Michigan High School. When he pressed the issue with student Daniel Glowacki who replied that his Catholic faith counters the homosexual lifestyle, McDowell ordered Glowacki out of the room and threatened suspending him. The school disciplined McDowell, but now mother Sandra Glowacki has filed a federal lawsuit against the school.

The homosexual lobby has since inundated the school with hate mail for its action against the teacher.

Daniel Glowacki, 16, was kicked out of class for not participating in the school’s spirit day to support gay and lesbian rights.

Teacher Jay McDowell was wearing a shirt supporting gay teens, but demanded a student remove her Confederate flag belt buckle because it was offensive. Glowacki challenged the teacher on tolerance and was ejected from class.

The Thomas More Law Center filed the lawsuit Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Detroit on behalf of Sandra Glowacki. It alleges teacher Jay McDowell violated her son's First Amendment rights when he removed the then-16-year-old teen, Daniel Glowacki, from class in October 2010 after the teen said he did not support homosexuality because of his religious beliefs.

Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel for the Law Center, said . . . "This case points out the outrageous way in which homosexual activists have turned our public schools into indoctrination centers, and are seeking to eradicate all religious and moral opposition to their agenda."

Superintendent Ron Wilson said the board's policy is simple - it does not tolerate bullying by teachers or students based on gender, sexuality, et cetera.

The suit says the teacher kicked out Daniel Glowacki, 16, then a junior, from an economics class on Oct. 20, 2010, while the district was observing anti-bullying day and Spirit Day. The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation encourages Americans to wear purple on Spirit Day to support LGBT youth who may feel harassed because of their sexual preference.

The lawsuit said the district allowed teachers to sell purple “Tyler’s Army” T-shirts in support of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers University freshman who killed himself last year after a roommate streamed an Internet video of Clementi kissing a male student. The teacher, McDowell, wore one of the T-shirts throughout the day and devoted his classes to promoting homosexuality, the suit said.

The district suspended McDowell for one day without pay for violating district policy but eventually rescinded the penalty to settle a grievance he filed.

From "School District Sued for Punishing Student's Opposition to 'Gay' Lifestyle" by Dave Bohon, The New American 12/21/11

When Daniel Glowacki said his Catholic religion does not accept homosexuality and he could not condone the behavior, McDowell was ‘angered’ and told Daniel Glowacki that his religion was ‘wrong,’ according to the lawsuit. McDowell then ordered Daniel Glowacki to leave the classroom.”

According to the Daily News, a “second student also was ordered out of the classroom when that student raised his hand to McDowell’s question about whether anyone else did not accept homosexuality.”

Following the classroom incident, recalled a Thomas More press release, news of the case made national headlines. Lesbian talk show host Ellen DeGeneres even got into the act when a homosexual student who had spoken up for McDowell at a school board meeting was invited to her show to talk about the case. For his appearance the homosexual student was given a $10,000 academic scholarship by a digital media company.

Homosexual activists across the country hailed McDowell for his “heroism” while branding the young Glowacki a bigot and his religiously motivated objections to homosexuality “hate” speech. Glowacki’s actions even prompted his high school to schedule a school assembly to talk about the dangers of “bullying.”

From "District receives threats following Glowacki lawsuit" by Lisa Roose-Church, Livingston Daily Press & Argus 12/21/11

Howell Public Schools has received "vulgar and threatening" e-mails related to "misinformation" contained in a federal lawsuit alleging a student was kicked out of class for his religious beliefs.

"Many of these e-mails are vulgar and threatening," Superintendent Ron Wilson wrote in the statement. "It is ironic that the very people who say they oppose violence and bullying are using these same tactics to intimidate our elected officials and staff." [Referring to the "homosexual lobby."]

As a result of the incident, McDowell was required to take part in training related to student's First Amendment rights and the discipline remains in his personnel file.
