Peter Sprigg: Target has changed, capacity to shock endures

by Jeremy Hooper

These days, he's speaking out against schools for being too educational. But would you believe that back in the mid-'70s, the teenaged version of Peter "gays should be criminalized and/or exported from the U.S." Sprigg was actually a rebel who was riling up his own local establishment with what one might even call "radical" views? It's totally true:

Of course nowadays, Sprigg lashes out at anyone who lacks a basic command of standard "pro-family" code-wording in specific, not the English language as a whole. And the arithmetic with which he's most concerned involves the supposedly morally superior sum that stems from the Screen Shot 2010-07-14 At 10.45.04 Am-2 + Screen Shot 2010-07-14 At 10.44.44 Am-2 equation.

But it is interesting to see that a man who has led us to pick our jaws off the floor on so many occasions has a long record of rocking the boat. We just wish we weren't the ones now being thrown overboard (or into an overseas jail, more fittingly).
