If someone treated my daughter like that I would be spending some time in jail, if I got caught. I don't care what anyone else's beliefs are. They are a non factor in my life or my kids. If they are a school administrator they are hired to educate kids. Not to force kids to have the same morals as them. They would get an after hours visit from me for something like this. There is no excuse for talking about a students private sexual life. If they are 11 in grade school or 22 in college. It's none of the teachers business. The parents should have done more to keep their child from getting pregnant this young but that has nothing to do with the schools responsibility to the privacy of it's students.

I'm Catholic and go to church every week. I think gay marriage should be legal, that abortion is a woman's decision, and that the church needs to stay out of the governments decisions. If the church wants to lobby for laws then they can stop getting my money and start paying taxes. The bible was written by men. Men who wanted to keep control of what they had and wanted things to never change. God is not an asshole like the dicks that wrote the bible. Why would an all powerful all knowing being give 2 farks if a woman wanted to be a teacher or if two men wanted to spend their lives together. He can create the universe but he gives a damn if you have sex with a woman on her period or if you get a tattoo or shave your beard. The bottom line is that if God is real he doesn't care what people do as long as they are good to each other and treat themselves and others with respect. Why would he want a staff member at a school to call out a girl for being pregnant?

Every person that reads a religious text sees what they want to see in it. They pick and choose what they want to believe. It's time to put a heavy hand on the issue of separation of church and state. Shut it down.

This country was founded to be fair and equal to all. If you want to live in a country ruled by a theocracy move to Iran.

Since when did "I wanted to tell people about it on my own time rather than be forced to announce it in front of everyone Right Now" turn into "I don't want a baby at all"? She's raising the kid, that sounds a lot like taking responsibility for the situation she put herself in. She did Not, however, put herself in the position of having to announce it at an assembly; that part was forced. Fark every single one of you who are criticizing this girl or saying she should have aborted the kid. I'm pro-choice but the kid's out already, it obviously wasn't the option she chose at the time. It's a shiatty situation all around but ya know what you do with people who are going through a hard time? You support them and do what you can to make things easier.

Added bonus is that she is native in NM.
This situation is pathetic all around. Girls that age should not be having sex and in no way are ready to bear the burden of a child.
The principle may have attempted to use her as an example of what should not happen. If he is white he will be crucified; if he is native it will be another story.


I disagree with pretty much everything you said there.

Girls that age are perfectly capable of having sex and raising a child. In the last 100 years due to significant changes in our society we believe that not to be the case due to our expectations of a higher education, women's rights improvements, and men not being the sole financial provider to a family. Biologically the girl is in her prime birthing years for having healthy babies.

No, I'm not happy, because "in a different county" doesn't automatically equal "has no access" and you're being deceptive by pretending those terms are equivalent. For example, my job used to be three counties away from my home. According to you, I didn't have access to the one while I was at the other. Ridiculous. But, since you asked, yes, 28% of people not having access sounds a lot better than 87%. Are you seriously trying to say that it doesn't?

Give an example of a major government that was a Christian theocracy anytime, anyplace. Sure there's been religious persecution against non-Christians. Sure there's been kings who claimed to rule by the grace of God.

Look for one in the modern world and the best you'll find are countries like Malta and Monaco. Unlike Islam, there is fundamentlally no Christian impulse to create theocratic governments.

Christianity doesn't promote ritual shaming of unwed mothers either.
Unfortunately, what Catholicism seems to promote is sheltering of criminal priests who abuse their flocks.


Vatican City. It is it's own nation, with its own ruler (currently Pope Benedict whatever number he is), its own Ambassadors, and its own currency. It is a political power and it is, by definition and in the very strictest of terms, a Christian Theocracy.

In history, several places would fit the definition, though whether they'd have been called Christian theocracies at the time is debatable:

Geneva at the height of Calvin's influence
Florence from 1494-1498 under the rule of Dominican Priest Girolamo Savonarola
The Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem 1099-1299
England under Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell

You did say anytime, anyplace. ;)


The only modern Christian theocracy in existence is, as mentioned above, Vatican City.

The only other current known and acknowledged theocracy in the world is Iran - which is, of course, Islamic. Your statement that Islam has a fundamental impulse to create theocratic governments, based on that evidence alone (given the fact that there are many more Muslims in the world than there are Christians), may not necessarily be a factual statement.

In both Christianity and Judaism, we are taught the same thing: the king (political leader) and priest (spiritual leader) are not and cannot be the same man. There's a bit of conflict of interest there because men are corrupt, as a general rule.


Back to the topic at hand, while some people who call themselves Christians seem to think public humiliation is useful, I do not. Nor do I feel it falls in line with the commandment to "love one another." The school was wrong, period. As a Christian, civil rights are secondary to me (and they were violated). What's most important, since someone's turned this into a Christian fundamentalist question (not that I'm surprised; this is Fark) is, is it fundamentally Christian to humiliate someone because they may have done something that is "wrong" or "sin" in God's eyes?

The answer to that is clear for any Christian. Fundamentally, the commandment is "love one another." As God has loved us, so we are to love one another. If we cannot love our brothers who we can see, how can we love God, who we cannot see? That, is fundamentally what it is to be a Christian. Seems too many Christians too often forget that. Maybe it's time we reminded them.

I'm more concerned with her apparent belief that not explicitly telling people she's pregnant will somehow keep them from knowing.

Try 40 years. My parents were married at 16 and had my sister a year later, during my mom's senior year. They told her pregnant students must complete their diploma via correspondence, even married ones, because they "make the school look bad." My mom wasn't a troublemaker, either, she had been involved in student government and all that rot. This was in 1970 in a Southern California high school near Long Beach.

They allowed her to come on campus only to practice with the choir. They had to give a solo performance for their midterm, and my mother waddled in there 7 months pregnant and sang "I'm Just a Girl Who Can't Say No" from Oklahoma. I guess I know where my troll genes come from.

"I didn't want the whole school to know I was pregnant because it's not their business, and it wasn't right for my teachers to single me out."

Not saying what the principal did was right, but you're classmates where probably going to figure it out anyways.

DirtyDeadGhostofEbenezerCooke: AbbeySomeone: Added bonus is that she is native in NM.

There is regular f*cked-up and then there is New Mexico f*cked-up. It's like 7-layer Bean F*cked Up.


yep. I spent a few years there. The tribe will be up everyone's ass over this with little or no culpability on the father.

serpent_sky: namegoeshere: Pregnancy is a medical condition. Congrats on violating HIPPA, school director.

At least the way too young mother will have money to take care of her child when she wins the lawsuit, or the ACLU makes sure they settle out of court for a handsome sum.

It's not a HIPPA issue, in this case, but if you read the article, it's "violation of constitutional rights to equal protection and of the Title IX prohibition against sex and pregnancy discrimination in education."


Added bonus is that she is native in NM.
This situation is pathetic all around. Girls that age should not be having sex and in no way are ready to bear the burden of a child.
The principle may have attempted to use her as an example of what should not happen. If he is white he will be crucified; if he is native it will be another story.

Runs_With_Scissors_: Do they kick out guys who have a babby out of wedlock?


This was the first thing I thought of also. If a classmate is the father, did the school do the same thing to him as they did to the girl or do they think pregnancy is just the girls fault?

Runs_With_Scissors_: namegoeshere: 15 in eigth grade? Great school you got there...

She's 15 now. Do you see the babby with the full head of hair she's holding? They kicked her out before she was even showing. Also? The ACLU filed the suit today, and it takes quite a while to get one of those together, too.


Oh, never mind.......

Boarding school? If this is a female-only school, I think I know where to look for Daddy...

Extra credit?

cman: I wouldn't go that far. I doubt Christians would execute veiled women in a soccer field for adultery


No they'd just deny her contraceptives and abortion so she' go to some back-ally place and have it done and die during the process.

Runs_With_Scissors_: Is this horrifying, or what?

Did we skip back in time a hundred years?

But two weeks after her readmission, a school counselor and the director of the middle school forced the teen to stand before the middle school assembly and announced her condition -- allegedly before anyone but her sister knew.

Obviously that wasn't the case.
