    The American heterosexuals failed in every way possible in our educational system.

    Maybe instead, they should just move out of the way, and let us take care of it.

    This is the dumbest ban I ever seen. I got bullied by a teacher in my first year of first grade and my mother even notified the school. They didn't care that she let other students beat me up and that she called me shit like "retard" or "stupid". School system is screwed up, now their banning gay teachers but not the teachers who bully their students or worse. Smdh

    As far as the shortcomings in our education system, the US also includes a heavy diversity of different groups--religious, ethnic, national origin, and otherwise--that are not always light-years ahead of the rest of the world. Here, if you just looked at the breakdown of education level by religious group, you might reflexively form a degree of contempt toward the Catholic religion:

    http://www.pewforum.org/religious-landscape-study/educational-distribution/

    However, consider the fact that a large number of Hispanic immigrants and their descendants are Catholic, and consider also that many Irish-descendants are Catholic and have historically been subjected to grievous racism. In the end, if you were to form a sense of contempt toward Catholics because they have the worst challenges in the American education system, then the targets of that contempt have suffered ignorant prejudice for other reasons. They are accustomed to it, I suppose. It is easy for secular Americans to ridicule a religious group for its lack of educational achievement if that's all you choose to tell them, and I think we should try harder to recognize our own ignorance if we can, since it can be as harmful as any.

    The US is a diverse country, and we face unique challenges in repairing deficiencies in our education system, much of which stems from historical injustice toward ethnic and racial minority groups. However, these deficiencies are reparable if we choose to confront the specific reasons why they exist.

    Now, this congressman is not just a homophobe, but he is a douchebag in general. To use a sensationalized account from WhirledNutDaily--which is an insult to journalistic integrity--as a pretext on which to demonize gay men...what I find most appalling is that this man referenced an article that first appeared in WhirledNutDaily. They have an agenda, and they are known for paranoid, ridiculous conspiracy theories.

    https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-...aily-continues-pump-out-outrageous-propaganda

    He should be shot by a state-authorized firing squad just for referencing a story from WhirledNutDaily, forget the homophobia. The most appalling thing about this is that he's citing a source of stupid, psycho conspiracy theories. It's garbage.

    I hope that GLAAD gets involved in this one.

    It won't actually get passed. It's just a way of pandering to their religious, bigoted supporters, so that next time they make a donation, maybe they will write a slightly bigger check.

    Which makes the suggestion and accusations that much more... sour.
