It does. According to CNN.com, a federal judge has blocked the implementation of a sex ed program in some Maryland schools that tolerates homosexuality.
The reasoning? Sit down for this one.
U.S. District Judge Alexander Williams agreed with two groups that sued contending such discussions gave preference of religions that are tolerant of homosexuality over those that reject it.
And of course we can’t have any preference for religions, can we? Unless it’s OUR One True Religion, that is.
So now teaching students that homosexuality exists and that homosexuals are people too infringes on someone’s religious right to hate them and urge discrimination against them?
Erik Stanley, an attorney for the groups that filed suit, said the curriculum excludes the viewpoints of former gays and those who believe that “same-sex attraction can be overcome.”
You mean, it excludes the viewpoint that homosexuality is wrong, that it can be eliminated with just a six-week online course, and therefore discrimination against homosexuals is okey-dokey? I sure as hell hope so.
It’s amazing the lengths to which the Far Reich (thanks, Nunya) will go to fight to keep their religious dominance and their bigotry.
(Now Consi will probably look up something in the court documents and spank me with it, but that’s okay—I like that about him. )
