    Whoever banned that speech should have their arse kicked. You assume a school would be proud of that child...

    Whoot! I love how a lot of these kid`s speech`s make more sense than a lot of politicians. I don`t just mean subject matter, I mean they use real words and not "loaded" ones. Bravo, kiddo!

    Sweet and all, and I happen to agree with the underlying message in this case, but really this kid hasn`t thought out those words for himself any more than those kids singing about "homos not getting to heaven" in church in that video the other week chose their own words or sentiments. There`s something quite sad about adults that try and further their own beliefs by expressing them through kids, whether you personally agree with the beliefs being expressed or not.

    He`s from Queens. How could he not be gay friendly?

    He`s a fifth grader, why it`s possible he was coached, it`s not improbable that he has an opinion.

    Of course I`m in favor of gay marriage,
    but politics don`t belong in school.

    Didn`t he mean "King" Obama? He gets to make all his own laws! Or selectively enforce the laws they agree with.

    Civil liberties aren`t "politics".

    You`re wrong. what if this was a speech about the importance of staying celebate until your married, or not bullying others? As parents, we have a duty to teach our kids right from wrong, and obviously this kid has good parents.

    The kid`s a fifth grader, that puts him at 10 or 11, which is certainly old enough to start forming his own beliefs about the world rather than just have his parents beliefs pushed on him. The kid`s just smart. Good for him.

    Sadly, I have to agree that the kid was put up to this. I REALLY expected and hoped to see a passionate speech that a kid ACTUALLY wrote, but I totally agree with everyone else (and I so didn`t want to) The kids mom wrote this speech, the kid was totally put up to it. He was spoon fed all this info. You can tell from how the kid READ the speech! You can totally tell it was brand new to him by the way he faltered at certain parts and had to SOUND OUT certain words and phrases! His mom put him up to this. I really wish this had been a TRUE and WELL READ speech from the heart of a 5th grader, but I agree it wasn`t. Fail.
