StopSB48 coalition plays Chaz Bono fear card, fulfilling mother's 'beat goes on' predictions

by Jeremy Hooper

With only days to go before the deadline, the Family Research Council, the National Organization for Marriage, and other groups that hide behind a "protect marriage" label are ramping up their effort to stop inclusive teaching in California schools. And to help do so, they are disseminating a Powerpoint which FRC says "you can show your congregation about this issue."

Here is but one slide from said Powerpoint:

Yes, that's correct: Those who want to revise actuality so that it excludes LGBT people are seriously implying that the effort to inclusively teach will come at the expense of historic figures. Because that's always what this "values" crowd wants people to think of LGBT individuals and their struggle for greater acceptance: That it cannot happen unless something good, noble, and Christian pays a price. They always need something or someone that appears to be overstepping the bounds in a way that victimizes something holy. In this case, it's Chaz impeaching our first President.

The irony of them making this "point" by turning to a man who wore a powdered wig and flowy capes? Well, it's certainly not lost on me.
