Student Dakota Ary has sought representation after he was suspended for saying homosexuality is wrong.

According to the Dallas-Fort Worth Fox News affiliate, the 14-year-old boy was given an in-school suspension for telling a friend during a German class that he was a Christian and “being a homosexual is wrong.”

“It wasn't directed to anyone except my friend who was sitting behind me,” Ary said. “I guess [the teacher] heard me. He started yelling. He told me he was going to write me an infraction and send me to the office.”

Ary was given a one day in-school suspension and two days of full suspension, which were later reduced to 1 day.

Holly Pope, Ary's mother, contacted Liberty Counsel, whose lawyer, Matt Krause, sat in on a meeting with officials from Western Hills High School.

“I told the school that he should never have been suspended for exercising his constitutional rights,” Krause said. “The principal is sincere in trying to do the right thing and hopefully they will tell the teacher, 'Do not do that anymore.' He won't be pushing his agenda.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

In a press release, the Christian law firm threatened to sue the school.

“Liberty Counsel is representing Dakota in this case, demanding full vindication and a full retraction of the suspension. If the school board does not comply, a lawsuit will be filed for violation of Dakota's first Amendment rights.”

“The double standard advocated by homosexual activists is mind boggling,” said Harry Mihet, senior litigation counsel for Liberty Counsel. “This teacher in Texas is actually bullying his students into accepting the homosexual lifestyle inside the class, and yet it is his student, not him, that gets suspended. We will vigorously defend and restore Dakota's constitutional rights.”
