Intrepid Reporter Finds High School Letting Gay Students Walk To Class Without Bullying

“I’ve never had any kind of problem with anything,” says Elijah Burleigh, a senior at Paris Gibson Alternative High School in Montana. The openly gay 17-year-old is “thriving,” the Great Falls Tribune tells us, with Elijah making friends left and right — even overcoming drunk and alcohol abuse to form a great relationship with his mother! I just hate it when I see Focus On The Family’s pro-bullying agenda failing.

    I’d comment fully but the Great Falls Tribune won’t let me read the other 4 pages of the article. The 1st page and the pics with captions are nice however.

    The first page was great; youre right–I didn’t expect to see that in Montana.
    I had the same problem getting past page 1 too, but thought maybe it was just my java script being cranky!

    And they all graduated to lead lonely, dysfunctional lives. But they weren’t beaten up. kbye

    “Drunk and alcohol abuse” is awesome.

    I’d rather be bullied (as I was) and overcome it to become the person I am today, thento cope with a “drunk and alcohol abuse” problem and mother issues at the age of 17. Sorry. I really don’t think this is anything to be proud of. (And yes, I know I ended a sentence with a preposition.)
