Laurie Higgins continues to show IL anti-equality movement's true agenda; Calls homosexuality a 'phenomenon'

by Jeremy Hooper

Another one from the loose-lipped IFI researcher who is going to win us marriage equality in Illinois:

Screen Shot 2013-02-14 At 9.26.24 Am"Some make the absurd argument that since families led by homosexuals exist, schools must teach about them. The truth is, however, that schools have no obligation to teach about every phenomenon that exists, nor do they have to include resources that affirm every phenomenon that exists. Does anyone believe that if a student being raised by polyamorists were enrolled in a public elementary school, teachers or administrators would feel obligated to include books in their libraries that affirm polyamorous family structures?"

Laurie Higgins, Illinois Family Institute researcher

A "phenomenon"? I mean, in one sense I like the label, since I think many gay kids, parents, and teachers are quite phenomenal. Though somehow, I don't think this is what Laurie means.
