Because freedom can't protect itself
Is the letter from the LGBT project the same as the letter from the Northern CA ACLU? If not, I'd like a copy of the letter from the LGBT project. I have the letter from the ACLU. I teach at FCC and am, needless to say, distressed by the alleged sectarian teaching from a fellow faculty-member.

ha! fact: my father did not make a choice to be a gay, that's why I was born of my mother :) but hey, if US Constitution is the highest authority in the Universe then... poor Moses (in Bible).
Can't handle the truth of the Bible? A colon is a sexual organ? I bet some gay professor teaching gay sex in a health class wouldn't be hastled by you guys? The ACLU is pathetic. Leave my buddy Brad alone!

Anony No. 3: please look up "hyperbole" in a dictionary -- did anyone claim that the Constitution is the highest authority in the Universe? Hyperbole is a form of LYING.

"Anything that can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence." (Sam Harris).

Oh Jarrod, how should we react when someone writes only to stir controversy?

Every view SHOULD be shared.
