Letter of the Day

New religion is mandatory

  • Print

Re: National study to quiz teachers on homophobia (Oct. 12). Not only does nature abhor a vacuum, but our school system does, too. As one religion is forced out of our schools, a new one steps in and is quickly given a special place of prominence.

Whereas the old religion in school was completely voluntary, the new one is mandatory for everyone within the school, students and teachers alike. With the old religion, adherents had to be careful not to speak too loudly about it or they would be labeled as intolerant.

Under the new religion, all people, whether they believe it or not, need to vocally support it or they will be labelled as haters. Under the old religion, spreading the news was forbidden. The new religion requires that teachers be used as evangelists.

What is this new religion, you ask? It's obvious, actually; it's the religion of human sexuality.
