PFOX p-files lawsuit for 'ex-gay' rights

by Jeremy Hooper

    Our "ex-gay" lovin' buddies at PFOX have filed a lawsuit against the Board of Education in Montgomery County, Maryland, because they claim that the school system's sex ed curriculum "promotes gay affirming religions," and discredits the "ex-gay" community.

Head PFOXer Regina Griggs says:

“This resource demonstrates an irrational phobia of the ex-gay community. It urges censorship of ex-gay materials in our schools and recommends silencing ex-gay students, teachers, and their supporters. Its opposition to sharing school access with ex-gay representatives demonstrates its own disregard for diversity.”

Rumor has it that the school system would have used the "ex-gay" materials, but a strict policy against including "damaging untruths hidden behind a veil of false compassion" in their school curriculum prevents them from doing so. Ya see, because the "ex-gay movement" is bullsh*t.
