Authorities are investigating McGuffey High School in Washington County, PA.

Allegations of a reported “lynch list” and physical harassment of gay students and their supporters at McGuffey High School are unfounded so far, according to a statement released Monday by McGuffey Superintendent Erica Kolat.

“On Thursday, April 16, 2015, allegations of harassment were brought to administration’s attention following the McGuffey High School Gay-Straight Alliance Club’s observance (Wednesday) of GLSEN’s ‘Day of Silence.’ Administration and school police officers have been investigating all allegations and continue to do so. At this time, no witnesses have seen the rumored ‘lynch list’ that was mentioned in previous news reports. Additionally, no statements have included physical harassment. Our investigation is ongoing, and we encourage anyone with information to contact McGuffey School District administration immediately. McGuffey School District is committed to providing a safe, supportive environment for all children,” she wrote.

When asked about the list, in which gay students and their supporters purportedly are named, Roger Szuminsky, school police chief, said, “We have heard that. (The investigation) absolutely continues until we get to the bottom of it.”

A group of McGuffey High School students sparked controversy after allegedly holding an “Anti-Gay Day” during school Thursday in protest of the National Day of Silence, an annual event intended to bring attention to bullying of the LGBT community.

    I suggest the students follow up the anti gay day with an anti ignorant a$$hole day and create a brain list including the names of the anti-gay idiots in need of a brain.

    So let’s get a few things clear righties.

    I don’t care how much someone’s religious beliefs tell them that being gay is a “sin”
    I don’t care how much someone’s religious beliefs tell them that interracial marriage is a “sin”

    I don’t care how much someone’s religious beliefs tell them that contraception is a “sin”.

    You are perfectly entitled to pray to whomever or whatever you worship that the above will all magically disappear from our culture.

    You are not entitled to impose your religious beliefs as matters of law in secular pursuits. So when I use pejoratives such as a$$hole and idiot to describe you people, it is to make the very simple point that this country is not a theocracy. We are not governed by right wing Sharia Christianity. We are governed by the United States Constitution which guarantees equality under the law for everyone.

    If you find equal protection objectionable, then I cordially invite you to get the f*ck out of my country.

    So that must mean they are for bullying. And why stop at bullying gay kids? Make up a list of criteria that must be met to be considered “normal” and anyone who doesn’t qualify is open to bullying. That should be fun.

        I believe James Carville referred to this part of Pa as Alabama. Here in my section of Allegheny County, Republicans do not have a candidate for many offices.
