Alternative Reactions

While the situations are obviously different, I am again struck by how different the responses are between the state of NY and the DPI of NC. Governor Patterson marched in yesterday's Pride parade and had this comment about the litigation threats of ADF.

Earlier this month, on behalf of several state Republican elected officials, a conservative Christian policy group based in Scottsdale, Ariz., sued Mr. Paterson in State Supreme Court in the Bronx to block the governor’s order.

Before he marched in the parade on Sunday, Mr. Paterson defended his order and insisted that a lawsuit challenging it would fail.
“It is the law and it is the right thing to do. I stand by it,” he said. “If someone would like to go to court and waste their money and prove me wrong, they can do that. And I welcome that.”

Again, I am stuck on why NC's DPI would attempt to appease ADF instead of stand up for Governor's School, their faculty, their students, and their alumni.
