    Don't know if you heard this story but Rick Santorum was scheduled to speak at Grosse Pointe High School in Michigan but the superintendent cancelled the appearance because of Santorum's "extreme" views on gay marriage. Well, the speech is back on but students must get a permission slip signed by their parents in order to see the speech. http://www.mlive.com/news/detroit/in...back_on_a.html

    Grosse Pointe is a very wealthy, republican area of suburban Detroit. It's more establishment republicans, though. It's where the old money is.

    At the end of "Gran Torino", the kid is driving the car up Lake Shore Drive in Grosse Pointe Shores, which is lined on one side with beautiful mansions that are architectural treasures, and on the other side is Lake St. Clair.

    Apparently Santorum was asked for the text of his remarks in advance, and refused to provide them.

    Since when is this a requirement or is this only reserved for conservatives.

    If that was a liberal trying to shove evolution down the kids throats, the school would be forcing them listen to him. But since Santorum is a republican and disagrees with gay marriage, they don't want the kids to listen to him. Apparently the school has been indoctrinating the kids into thinking that gay marriage is o.k and that everything the bible teaches is wrong. Good one there, Michigan ...

    I have no way of knowing what that school district specifically requires, any more than you do.

    Apparently you were mistaken. Correction...you were mistaken.

    Quite frankly, it looks like you are using this in defense of the school.

    Santorum opinions bad, liberal school administrator opinions good.

    Santorum is a hate monger. Why would anyone want him to speak at a high school?

    Toe-may-toe, toe-mah-toe.

    I happen to think every liberal/democrat/lefty walking the earth is a hate monger. Evidence would be on my side.
