PFOX pushing 'ex-gay' into public schools; Dr. Seuss books said to feel threatened

by Jeremy Hooper

PFOXIt's that time of year again: The time when the so-called Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays (PFOX) notice that others are engaging in efforts to encourage more peace in the world for all students who fall under the spectrum of recognized sexual orientations, and then resist that tolerant effort with their own campaign to push discredited, non-peer-reviewed, almost exclusively faith-based research into America's public (i.e. taxpayer-supported) school systems:

WASHINGTON, April 11, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX) is urging parents, students and educators to distribute ex-gay literature at high schools and colleges across the country this Friday.
...
"Because homosexual activists try to censor the ex-gay point of view, PFOX asks students to distribute ex-gay literature to their friends in support of equality for the ex-gay community," said Griggs. "The day of silence enables students to distribute ex-gay literature without harassment since opponents are obligated to remain silent that day."

Oh, PFOX. Silly, silly, PFOX. The pro-gay students can stay silent all year and it still won't turn up the volume of truth attached to your propagandistic pamphlets. In fact, the silence will only increase the chance that this highly pro-gay generation's eye rolls will manage to make an audible noise.
