The kids take on the adults

DeLaSalle High School, a Catholic school in Minneapolis, held an assembly for its seniors who will be old enough to vote in November. Representatives from the Archdiocese were there to talk to the teens about marriage -- in particular the approved way to vote on the marriage protection amendment which will be on the ballot.

Once it was obvious the direction the presentation was going the kids got upset. The cause wasn't helped when the speakers implied that families with single parents or adopted children were lesser families. Once the gay marriage issue came out the kids started taking on the speakers in respectful debate. Even so, school officials saw the kid's anger and ended the assembly. Score one for the kids.
