Conservative radio outraged; officials say it was just ‘a bit of silliness’

REEDSBURG, Wis. - An elementary-school event in which kids were encouraged to dress as members of the opposite gender drew the ire of a Christian radio group, whose angry broadcast prompted outraged calls to the district office.

I had a day similar to this when I was in elementary school, it was fun and not a big deal. But of course religious extremists will always have something to say...

I had a similar day as well in 1995 in the buckle of the Bible Belt. People need to get a grip. :P

homophobs out of control---it's just for laughs, what is the big deal? did they think donning clothing of the opposite sex was going to change these kids' lifestyle?

Erm, when did it ever say in the Bible 'Thou shalt not cross-dress'? Heaven forbid kinds might find that kind of thing fun at their age.

hmm.. elementary school.. such a wide gap there. Was this like 2nd grade or 5th grade?

I'm not the biggest fan of the idea.. I just think you have to watch the age group.

I dressed as "lady" one halloween.. but I only did it cause I knew it would be hot... and I was.

anyway.. back to the topic..

I've learned quite a few times on this board that being gay isn't a sin. Having sex with the same sex is the sin (from what I've heard on here and completely disagree with)..

but if that is the argument that is used.. that having sex with the same sex is the sin.. then what is the big deal about dressing up in clothing of the opposite sex? There should be nothing wrong with it..

It is in the bible read:

Duet. 22:5 :The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God."

So I guess that begs the question of what makes a man's garment.. a "man's" garment?

1. Is it a sin when my wife wears one of my t-shirts?
2. Is it a sin when my wife wears a pair of my socks?
3. Is it a sin when I put my jacket on my wife if she is cold?

What if the kids dressed up like "manly" lesbians.. would that be ok?

These are all questions just running through me head..

Oh.. wait.. what if I have a headband or wristbands.. and my wife wears them?

.. ohhh.. what if my wife puts on my watch..

what if my wife and I have the same size shoe.. and, by mistake, she puts on my shoes? Is that a sin...

i bet many women in history wore men's garmentsin order to work and survive. and i guess Joan of Arc must be on fire right now ( no punn intended) since i am sure she wasnt riding horseback in her silk gown...

You first have to draw the line between men's clothing and women's clothing. Skirts are considered women's clothing, but some of the Scottish wear kilts.

Not that it matters to me anyway. If people lived completely by the bible, they'd be on death row.
