In Brownsville, Tennessee, Haywood High School Principal Dorothy Bond resigned after allegedly threatening to expel LGBT students and telling them that they would go to hell (video below).
Student Amber Whittiemore told ABC 24 that Bond Slammed LGBT and pregnant students during a Feb. 9 student assembly: “At first she was talking about PDA and she turned around and she directly pointed to the gay people and said if you’re gay you’re going to hell and if you’re pregnant, you’re life is over."
The ACLU received reports that Bond had also threatened LGBT students with 60-day suspensions during that same assembly.
ACLU of Tennessee executive director Hedy Weinberg said: “Students should never be made to feel like they are unwelcome at their own school, especially by school leadership. We expect school officials to clearly state that they do not condone this type of harassment and targeted discrimination, and to take action to ensure that it does not happen again.”
