“Matt’s School Safe Law”: Anti-bullying law now protects the bullies depending on their motive

Michigan is passing a law that will protect bullying under certain circumstances. Read the Huffington Post Article and tell me I’m not crazy that this is insane. (Also, watch the video where Senator Gretchen Whitmer expresses her opinion).

It is a travesty that a bill (named after MATT no less) that was supposed to address bullying in schools and keeping kids safe, makes okay and protects those that bully if their actions come from a “sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction “.

As a teacher, I am appalled. As a Christian, I am utterly disheartened.
This is probably the most insane legislation I have heard of relating to education, and I think we all know that is saying A LOT.
