EDUCATION/YOUTH

Gay Agenda Highjacks Bullying Crisis By Marybeth Hicks
the theory — that kids will cease to belittle students of nonconforming sexuality because of early sensitivity training — will only put more teens and young adults at risk of bullying, depression, and suicide.

GENERAL

“I think that the thing you said [on the Nov. 8 show] everybody is afraid to mention is that we’re always told that homosexuals are not pedophiles. … Is that what you had in mind?” asked a caller.

“Not pedophiles, but I do think it’s the elephant in the room that it’s not called a homosexual problem or scandal or what have you… because the political aspects [of] homosexuality, which they’ve got a very powerful lobby and they’re liberal and they support the Democrat Party, they succeed in stifling conversation about it.

The absurdity is that gays and lesbians don’t regard this as a disaster at all.
