Weekly Barometer Submission
I admit it, I'm a hypocrite. But you know, so are a lot of people, and this is a great example of it. For those who don't know, two years ago in California, a high school girl was being teased by her fellow students about being a Mormon. While the students were teasing her, she muttered under her breath, "That's so gay." A teacher heard her and put her on disciplinary charges for being culturally insensitive. The girls tormentors got away without any consequences.
So apparently it is acceptable to openly harass somebody about their religion than it is to almost inaudibly mutter a phrase that has been commonplace in high schools for the past eight years or so. Apparently even politically correct can't manage to be impartial.
