Darnell ‘Dynasty’ Young, Gay Student, Faces Expulsion For Firing Stun Gun To Fend Off Bullies



Thinking Out Loud

At the same site is a link to a sermon audio where the pastor — after the news story had gone viral — issued a retraction.  You can access that audio here.

But there’s a couple of dots in this story that I haven’t seen people connecting.  One reader sent me a link to the original story at The…
