American College of Pediatricians trying to work anti-gay web site into the schools

Last night I wrote what I call an "emergency post" on a new web page (Facts About Youth) by the phony medical organization, the American College of Pediatricians.

This web page repackages standard anti-gay junk science as legitimate research.

This morning, I've learned, according to the Family Research Council, that 14,800 school district superintendents in the country were sent a letter by the American College of Pediatricians introducing them to the site and encouraging them to peruse it.

That's 14,800 school district superintendents encouraged to read and pass along information such as:

1. Gay men are disease ridden animals who enjoy playing with feces,

2. Lesbians are equally diseased and irresponsible,

3. and that there is proof that homosexuality is just a changeable condition.

And we wonder why it was so easy for Constance McMillen's school to treat her the way it did.

And we wonder why it's so hard for lgbt youth to accept their God-given sexual orientations. It's bad enough when wanton homophobes such as Peter LaBarbera tell lies about the lgbt community.

But when people who purport to be medical professionals pass along these lies, it should be criminal.

Alvin, can you send this article to the GLSEN headquarters and ask them to post it on their website and to make the information about these peoples lies available to all students via GLSEN? That might be one way to thwart these liars. Maybe if you ask the AMA, APA, and the American Pediatric Association to make statements against these people and to show them to be no health professionals and religious backed liars, we could also send their statements to GLSEN and other sites to ensure that the parents of students understand these liars agenda.
