ACLU continues to fight for 'mo rights

by Jeremy Hooper

The ACLU has filed papers in federal court, arguing that mandatory anti-gay harassment training for students at Kentucky's Boyd County High School does not violate the students' right to free exercise of religion. This action is in response to a recent motion by the ultra-conservative Alliance Defense Fund, who are seeking to shut down the diversity-encouraging program in the name of religious freedom.

Exactly when beating the sh*t out of the fruity kid became a religious right is beyond us, but leave it to the ADF to find a justification for queer persecution. It's their bag, baby.

According to the ACLU, at least two gay students have dropped out of Boyd due to harassment. Also, the school’s Model United Nations once adopted a resolution declaring an "open hunting season" on gays and students in an English class once stated that they needed to "take all the f-ing faggots out in the back woods and kill them."

To which the ADF replies, "And your point?"
