Everyone knows, much like the thought of women working, the idea of homosexuals being anything other than a wretched curse on society, who are arbitrarily tossed into prison on questionable sodomy charges (but really for being the colorful flamers they are), makes Republicans very uncomfortable.
Luckily, delightful congressman like Rep. Steve King (R-IA) and 52 other (enlightened) House Republicans have upped the ante of their delusional rantings against director of the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools and menace to wholesome society Kevin Jennings for threatening all of humanity with his dreaded homosexual agenda.
This is the fate of our children we're talking about!
Which is why it is so reassuring to know we have upstanding lawmakers like Rep. Steve King leading the fight of the righteous to bring down the evil homosexual cabal threatening the very fabric of this great nation. All that flamboyance and cleanliness and pride--it's too much!
As such, King and his patriotic band of anti-gay crusaders have written a formal letter to the White House asking President Barack Obama to fire Jennings on the claim that:
"As the founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), Mr. Jennings has played an integral role in promoting homosexuality and pushing a pro-homosexual agenda in America's schools-an agenda that runs counter to the values that many parents desire to instill in their children."
"Throughout his career, Mr. Jennings has made it his mission to establish special protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered students to the exclusion of all other students. The totality of Mr. Jennings' career has been to advocate for public affirmation of homosexuality. There is more to safe and drug free schools than can be accomplished from the narrow view of Mr. Jennings who has, for more than 20 years, almost exclusively focused on promoting the homosexual agenda."This homo-obsessed, rainbow-tinged demon teacher must be stopped! Who knows the countless number of homosexual students--disproportionately the victims of violence and harassment at school--who've been saved by this evil man's commitment "to the safety" of these sinful students?
Meanwhile, the good, straight kids are left to suffer all because they can no longer beat up that one fag in their gym class.
Think about it. Is this really the message we want to be sending our children? That it's okay to be different? Or even worse, that it's okay to be gay and not automatically get your ass kicked by half the football team??
I, for one, don't want to live in a world where smear the queer is nothing more than a friendly romp of playground tag. Apparently, nor does Steve King. And not just because he's the running champ of his favoritist childhood game that also happens to bear his moniker.
No, not Asshole. King of the Hill, silly.
