Just when you think this rag can't sink any lower...

Nothing like posting the picture on the front page of a 15-year-old kid who'd been expelled the unchurchly act of kissing another girl. Posting it just for the sake of getting yet another shot in at the heathens' child.

The stomach turning story is here, and you had to go to the jump to get the very bestest quote:

Principal J. Anthony Knight and school founder Emmaline McKinnon sent home a letter Friday informing Covenant families that the lawsuit had been withdrawn.
Knight also sent a copy of this letter to the Gwinnett Daily Post.

The letter did not explain the Bradleys’ reasons for dropping it, but it did assure parents that the school hadn’t offered to settle the case, or paid any settlement money. It described the withdrawal as a blessing from God.

Shorter Athony Knight (and, in collusion, the always-sympathetic hillbilly rag itself) "don't worry, devout fundie asshole readers--we won! We dodged another bullet! Them gawdless ACLUer types won't be suing us for behaving like baboons!"

(apologies to any real baboons who may be reading this.)
