INDIANA: Diane "Gays Have No Purpose" Medley Suspended By School District

Indiana teacher Diane Medley, who made national news last week for objecting to gay students bringing dates to the prom, has been suspended by her school district.
Superintendent Mark Baker of the Northeast School Corp. in western Indiana's Sullivan County issued a statement saying the teacher has been placed on administrative leave out of concern "for the safety and security of everyone in our buildings." He added that "as a precaution" the Sullivan County Sheriff's Department and Indiana State Police "have deemed it necessary to station an officer" at North Central Junior-Senior High School in Farmersburg, about 75 miles southwest of Indianapolis. He said the "administration and one school employee in particular" at the school have received "aggressive email messages." "We are turning over to law enforcement all such communications," Baker said.
JMG reader Enzo notes that a Facebook page calling for a separate "tradition prom" has gone back online.
