by Jeremy Hooper

When think of political points to connect to the tragic CT school shooting, a pundit has several options. Gun control is the most obvious. Some suggest a mental health conversation. Others might want to talk about how we can ratchet up security even more at our nation's public schools.

But if you're the Traditional Values Coalition's Andrea Lafferty, you will connect the slaughter of six- and seven-year-olds Andrea-Laffertydirectly to employment protections for LGBT people and the supposed "dangers" such protections pose to schoolchildren. Because why let a good tragedy go to waste, right?
