  1. 50 years ago he’d have probably been a member of the KKK and would be saying it’s a travesty that black people want equal rights, that black people are hypersensitive and that racial issues – white or black – shouldn’t be spoken about in school.

    1. You can bet he would be, this is what the Republican extremists feed on. Their party is built on greed, selfishness, arrogance, ignorance and hatred.

      Any party that tries to dictate to the public on moral and religious issues is nothing more than a despotic dictatorship. They are no different to the Taliban, they just happen to be in a country where they don’t have the option of abusing or murdering people they don’t like based on their religious insanity.

  2. Just another disgraceful example of Republicanism. This ‘failure’ typifies the Neanderthal attitudes which still dominate their religously-brainwashed grey matter. I am really angry that anyone would so denigrate an attempt at ‘harmony’. Presumably, he’d rather these kids were shooting each other? What a total piece of sh*t he is. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

  3. It’s not like the good ole days when you could beat gay people, throw them in jail, call them slurs, deny them jobs/housing/services, deny them marriage and blame them for everything bad in the world without a hint of backlash. Now those mean ole gays get all pissy and fight back when you do those things! I’m feeling oppressed! What’s the world coming to?

  4. And here is the crux of the problem for completely idiotic bigots like him… it’s not offensive to comprehend two men or two women being IN LOVE.

    The fact that this man takes it immediately to sex is what is wrong, and it shows his complete immaturity and ignorance.

    I think he should probably sit down with those kids and actually learn something, it seems as though his IQ is lower than theirs. – then again, you don’t exactly need any intellect to be a Republican politician, obviously.

  5. Another sex obsessed republican… Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    1. Correction – GAY sex-obsessed. What does that tell you about what is REALLY going on in these people’s heads? They are seething with anger that, in their conscious minds, they are disgusted at the prospect of same-sex activity. But in their subconscious, they are DESPERATE for some gay action. And so, they let their frustration rip by constantly abusing us as we represent what they really want to be. It’s so obviously self-hatred turned outwards. They need help to come out. If only someone’s homophobia were to be treated as a desperate plea for help in coming to terms with suppressed homosexuality, we could eradicate the problem altogether.

    Yeah damn you for your Harmony and not the Republican hatred. That must be failure…blah, blah, blah and yawn.

    What an idiot, what a bore who clearly think teaching children homophobia is more worthy…

    Seriously why are these people allowed to have children?

    Pathetic man who prefers Religion meaning wars, hatred etc… well not for me ta!

  7. Sex obsessed, certainly. Spirit Day is a beautiful idea. Purple T shirts will be harmless to any sane person – but many cannot separate Gays from the community’s highly sexualised image. Much responsibility for this lies with the community itself. The abiding images of Pride tend to be either drag or explicitly sexual.

  8. “you can’t talk about anything without them jumping on you”

    Yeah, in your chubby guy dreams Kevin Elmer.

  9. When school children learn to accept everyone as equals regardless of their sexual orientation … then the terrorists have won!

  10. Notice that acknowledging and respecting sexual diversity is indistinguishable for this guy from promoting actual sex. I think that’s very revealing of the sexually fearful and prejudiced psyche. I once tried to explain the pervasiveness and character of homophobic discrimination to someone who suddenly interjected – ‘why do you have to talk about sex?’. And of course, I hadn’t been.
