Pace Iain, another post about gay issues . . .

Via Dispatches from the Culture Wars, a US high school has banned a Gay/Straight Alliance club to raucous applause, after lobbying by professional hatemongers Operation Save America.

So declareth said hatemongers in a media release:

GLSEN so frames the argument that it appears that homosexuality, bisexuality, and transgender identity will become the next great human rights and civil rights campaign. This is a lie from the pit of hell! A moral wrong must never become a civil “right.”
God, I love these US fundie types. They're such pleasant, accommodating, wonderful folk. Salt of the earth! I hope our fundies become more like their fundies. (Seriously, though: what is so dangerous about an organisation that promotes acceptance of nonstraights among the student body that school authorities must go the extent of banning it?)
