The ADF is at it again

They seem to think that the Governor's School has an agenda to turn kids gay. Yes, I kid you not. They want to keep the school from showing a couple of films and having an intellegent discussion about them. Never mind that the school has required permission from the parents of the students before they will be allowed to see the films, the ADF has threatened to sue the NC Dept of Instruction to keep the film from being shown. The wrong wing spin can be found here.

My perspective and more info is here.

To announce that there must

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only UNPATRIOTIC and servile, but it is morally treasonable to the American public.

Politicians are like diapers. They should be changed frequently, and for the same reasons.

I thought you meant

the American Dance Festival at first!

Good catch, Jim. Thanks for cross-posting this here.

Thanks

it's still a work in progress...

I think the school is between a rock and a hard place

Personally, I don't have a dog in this hunt, but I have a friend that does. It seems to me that this is just one more case of the christo-fascists trying to impose their will on the rest of society. They think that by threatening the Dept of Instruction they can force them to bend to their will. But how that is any different than the Taliban and Islamic radicals doing the same thing in the mid-east and around the world is just beyond me. Both groups want to impose their will on the rest of us and to bad if you don't want it. They don't seem to know abut a little thing called "Separation of Church and State". It's there for a reason. This country is suppose to be a democracy, not a theocoracy. And it's high time people start fighting back against these fringe radicals who want to decide what you can think, do and say.

In discussion with my son over dinner tonight

he pointed out how ridiculous the idea that movies could affect someone like that. He said

If that were true, then people watching right wing movies would be stupid! Oh. Wait.

Of the two friends of his who are at the school, he said that they would both want to watch the movies - and that they've all already seen But I'm a Cheerleader (which is a hysterical movie.) He also said that these idiots need to stop using the words "Alliance" and "Defense".

They're not fighting anyone, and the ACLU will kick their asses.

:) Nice to be young.
