"Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to you..."
An interview with an anti-gay, special education teacher in Indiana has prompted what just might be the best Billy Madison mash-up ever.
Playing off the 1995 classic's "everyone is now dumber" moment, the viral video -- posted on social news site Reddit -- features teacher Diana Medley stating her opinion on gay children before being mercilessly torn apart Mr. Oblaski, the principal in "Billy Madison."
At the beginning of the parody video, Medley says of homosexuality, "We don't agree with it, its offensive to us... I don't believe [gay students] were born that way. I think that life circumstances made them choose that. I think God made everybody equal."
"[That] is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard," Mr. Oblanski responds. "At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

Medley first gained notoriety for telling NBC local television affiliate WTWO that gay students should be banned from the prom at Sullivan High School in Wabash Valley, Ind. Medley told the station that she believes being gay is a choice, and that she does not believe gays have a purpose in life.
According to Time, the teacher's sentiments were echoed by some parents and students also lobbying for a straight-only prom. The group had formed a Facebook page, called 2013 Sullivan Traditional Prom, to drum up support for their cause, but the page has apparently been taken down.
