The Religious Right isn’t going away just yet. Here’s a quotation from one of their leaders:
“This is just bizarre, and it shows how the teachers with their radical sexual agenda want to start early to reprogram these kids’ minds. They want to undermine the faith teachings that the kids have at home; this is part of a plan,” he suggests. “To me, this is like Hitler with Nazi Germany and the Soviets wanting to get to the youth and change the kids by getting to them at a very young age.”
That was said by Peter LaBarbera, the president of “Americans for Truth about Homosexuality.”
What evil, nefarious event brought on that statement?
The card below — typically meant for middle school or high school students — was accidentally passed out to a classroom of kindergartners in California last week:
The school has acknowledged the mistake and has stated the cards were not appropriate for that age group.
End of story, right?
Nope. LaBarbera contends it’s all just part of our master plan.
I call Reductio ad Hitlerum on this one.
