  3. That said, I'm surprised his parents enrolled him at the school.

    From that same Towelroad link, the school had a morals clause in the student handbook that the parents and the student HAD to be aware of. I wonder if his parents maybe don't like him very much.

    “Lutheran High North reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission of an applicant and/or to discontinue enrollment of a current student participating in, promoting, supporting or condoning: pornography, sexual immorality, homosexual activity or bisexual activity; or displaying an inability or resistance to support the qualities and characteristics required of a Biblically based and Christ-like lifestyle,”

    Unless they are sacrificing their son to make a political point.....in which case my above statement still holds.

  4. Homophones, as any English grammarian can tell you, are words that sound the same but have different meanings and often different spellings — such as be and bee, through and threw, which and witch, their and there.

    This concept is taught early on to foreign students learning English because it can be confusing to someone whose native language does not have that feature.

    But when the social-media specialist for a private Provo-based English language learning center wrote a blog explaining homophones, he was let go for creating the perception that the school promoted a gay agenda.

    Tim Torkildson says after he wrote the blog on the website of his employer, Nomen Global Language Center, his boss and Nomen owner Clarke Woodger, called him into his office and told him he was fired.

    As Torkildson tells it, Woodger said he could not trust him and that the blog about homophones was the last straw.

    "Now our school is going to be associated with homosexuality," Woodger complained, according to Torkildson, who posted the exchange on his Facebook page.

    no, this is not from "The Onion".
