What do you guys think about this play being put on in schools? What grade levels should it be shown to? In my opinion, this is a strong lesson that should be taught. Personally, I do not agree with homosexuality. I think the act of being gay is wrong, however I do not hate a person because he or she is gay and I certainly would never be mean or portray any kind of hate toward this person. I am a Christian and I know that God does not hate a person because they are gay. He hates the act. Students need to be taught to love and respect others even if they are different. Most of the time homosexuals aren't hated because someone truly believes it is wrong (at least in the high school setting) but because they just think the person is gross or something. A lesson needs to be taught against hatred.
