National Day of homophobia
http://www.gaytoday.com/events/050604ev.asp

Religious Right forces are using the National Day of Prayer as a vehicle to promote a controversial religious and political agenda, charges Americans United for Separation of Church and State. Congress by federal law has designated the first Thursday in May as an annual National Day of Prayer. (Today this year.)

In recent years, the event has been dominated by the National Day of Prayer Task Force, a Religious Right group based in Colorado Springs. The task force is chaired by Shirley Dobson, wife of Focus on the Family founder James C. Dobson, and operates from the offices of Focus on the Family.


They've put up a website. If you go there, you quickly notice that it's hardcore fundamentalist all the way. In particular here:

Education
Many of our schools and universities are minimizing traditional subjects such as history and math, and are instead promoting a radical social agenda. For example, some schools begin teaching homosexual propaganda to kindergartners. As a result, our children are entering the "real world" knowing more about politically correct ideas than they do about reading or science! Pray that your schools will get "back to basics" when it comes to educating our children, instilling the leaders of tomorrow with a respect for the Judeo-Christian values upon which our nation was founded.


Just thought you'd like to know.

1. Blech.
For every thousand decent, caring, open-minded fundamentalist I know, there's always a handful of these nutcases.

6. That's not entirely the point
Prayer is not the exclusive domain of any one religion.

What does what is taught is schools have to do with prayer?

2. They're warning about the homosexual agenda in schools.

I need to check into World Gay Central, brainwashing dept, to find out how these people got ahold of our plans to corrupt those loving, decent Judeo-Christian children in the public schools. This was supposed to be top, super secret, and I demand to know who leaked this.

Some people are not going to get well deserved kitchen appliances because of this.

5. I am with you on this one.
I for one demand they return their toasters at once and be banned from any gay day events at disneyland for at least 10 years. May they have wrinkles by then!
