First public gay high school to open in NYC

NEW YORK (AP) ‑‑ New York City is creating the nation's first public high school for gays, bisexuals and transgender


The Harvey Milk High School will enroll about 100 students and open in a newly renovated building in the fall. It

is named after San Francisco's first openly gay city supervisor, who was assassinated in 1978.

"I think everybody feels that it's a good idea because some of the kids who are gays and lesbians have been

constantly harassed and beaten in other schools," Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday. "It lets them get

an education without having to worry."

The school is an expansion of a two‑classroom public school program that began in 1984. A gay‑rights youth

advocacy group, the Hetrick‑Martin Institute, has managed and financed the program since its inception.

The new school's principal, William Salzman, said the school will be academically challenging and will follow

mandatory English and math programs. It also will specialize in computer technology, arts and culinary arts.

State Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long criticized the creation of the school.

"Is there a different way to teach homosexuals? Is there gay math? This is wrong," Long said. "There's no

reason these children should be treated separately."

The Hetrick‑Martin Institute's Web site says the school will give its students "an opportunity to obtain a

secondary education in a safe and supportive environment. ... We believe that success requires the ability to

respect and value the diverse human community."

Romans 1:18‑32

18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in


19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made,

even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their

imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted

beasts, and creeping things.

24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between


25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for

ever. Amen.

26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is

against nature:

27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men

working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things

which are not convenient;

29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate,

deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have

pleasure in them that do them.

Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall

surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

II Ki 23:6‑7 And he brought out the grove from the house of the LORD, without Jerusalem, unto the brook Kidron, and burned it at

the brook Kidron, and stamped it small to powder, and cast the powder thereof upon the graves of the children of the people. And

he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.

1 Cor 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor

idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

      Hebrews 12:1‑3  “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us

      lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race

      that is set before us,    Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our] faith; who for the joy that was

      set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of

      God. {author or, beginner}    For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against

      himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.” [email protected]
