David Emerson is a producer, an on-air personality for a Columbus, Ohio radio station, and an openly gay man. Now he is at the center of a controversy because of his old school. You see, David is also an alumnus of the Delaware Christian School in his native Ohio, and they are no longer pleased that he is an alum of their school.
David was celebrated by their school for the fact that he was such a success, and he was profiled by the school on its alumni page for years after he graduated in 2002, but now, the school’s administrators have pulled it down because, well, according to the school’s principle and superintendent Gordon McDonald “The school doesn’t approve in the gay lifestyle, and that is why David’s page was removed.” Of course, one has to wonder what lifestyle that is. Does he mean waking up at noon after getting to bed at 3am writing? It is amazing what they think lifestyle means- which is pretty much what many straight men do all the time.
As for David, he is very hurt by what they did. He stated “I think being a Christian gay man, its more hurtful than anything. There is just no room for discrimination or hate anymore. . . I’m a human being, and so is every other person out there that is gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or straight. . .They really need to rethink this. And to have open minds and really remember in the end, love is what matters.”
It is unlikely that these supposed Christians are going to be willing to rethink their bigotry. After all, they would rather hurt others than be real Christians. There is a video of this at ABC6, and there is mention of their phone number…
