Who is Daniel Glowacki? He is the high-school junior who is standing up for his rights as a Catholic to hold and express his beliefs.
On October 10, 2010, as he walked into his economics class at Howell High School in Howell, Michigan, he was ordered to remove his belt buckle by the teacher, Johnson "Jay" McDowell. The belt buckle bore the Confederate flag and McDowell considered himself "offended" by it. At the same time, McDowell was wearing a purple tee-shirt decrying alleged "bullying of gays". When Glowacki pointed out the obvious double-standard regarding classroom attire, McDowell questioned him on the spot about his feelings on homosexuality. Glowacki replied to the question by stating that as a Catholic he was offended by the gay lifestyle. Immediately he was ordered to leave the classroom under threat of suspension. McDowell then posed the same question to the rest of his class - and summarily threw out yet another student.
The gay cartel wasted no time jumping on Glowacki, like vultures swooping in for their prey. The school district sided with their "anti-bullying" bully - who just happens to be the school leader for the teachers' union (ahem!). Ellen DeGeneres even jumped into the fray.
Also jumping into the fray, though, is the Thomas More Law Center. They are representing Glowacki and his family in a federal lawsuit filed against the school district. Good for them! At this point in time, Glowacki is probably eighteen years old. I applaud him for showing not only the courage not to back down in the classroom but also for standing up and saying to McDowell and his cronies that he has First Amendment rights and there will be consequences for those who infringe upon them.
In the meantime, please consider contacting the school itself at http://www.howellschools.com/staff_directory.cfm?school=1952 McDowell is number 86. The principal is Aaron Moran, number 103.
