Just this week, some of the other members of the Reading School Board found out that Stamm had a blog. At least one board member and a clergyman in the audience didn't like a comment posted by a reader on Stamm's blog, according to the Reading Eagle.
From the newspaper article:
At the school board meeting, the Rev. Steven R. McCracken, whose two children attend district schools, said that posts on the site were racist and others encouraged students to damage homes of school administrators. McCracken, who is pastor of St. James Chapel Church of God in Christ, 11 S. Ninth St., did not provide specific examples. Contacted after the meeting, he acknowledged he had not seen the blog entries but had heard about them from other people.Stamm is one of only 2 Republicans on the 9-member school board. The board president is a Democrat. Isn't it interesting how intolerant Democrats are about other views?
Stamm told the newspaper he does omit entries that contained obscene language, but otherwise allows posters to express their opinions.
The rest of the Reading School Board needs to brush on the First Amendment. Everyone has a right to free speech, even elected officials ... even Republicans.
I couldn't help but notice Stamm posted a link to the U.S. Constitution on his site today, perhaps giving some of his fellow board members an opportunity to brush up on the Bill of Rights. They should take that opportunity.
