Students at St. Charles North High School near Chicago won't face disciplinary action for wearing anti-gay t-shirts to school last week, the Daily Herald reported.

The students objected to the school's participation in Ally Week, a campaign to bring awareness to anti-gay bullying, by wearing “Straight Pride” t-shirts.

On Monday, 3 students wore t-shirts that featured Straight Pride on the front and a Bible verse that promotes violence against gay people on the back.

“If a man lay with a male as those who lay with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination and shall surely be put to death,” the Leviticus passage reads.

School officials asked the students to black out the Bible quote with permanent maker and they agreed.

Two additional students wore Straight Pride t-shirts without the Bible quote the following day.

School officials announced on Tuesday that none of the students would not face disciplinary action, a decision that riled some in the community.

“The quote on the back of the shirts were pretty much a death threat towards all of the gay and lesbian people at St. Charles North,” Michael Fairbanks, president of the Gay-Straight Alliance at neighboring St. Charles East, told the St. Charles Republican. “When people are being emotionally hurt and distracted from having a healthy and safe learning environment, the bullies should be persecuted and punished.”
