Politics The Day in Wingnuts

Today’s WorldNetDaily gets all apoplectic over Senator Patty Murray, for referring to the 65-foot-tall silver fir outside the Capitol as a “holiday tree” during last night’s lighting ceremony.
Murray was in the minority in her use of “holiday tree,” as the event’s master of ceremonies, Alan Hantman, the architect of the Capitol, called it “the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree.”
Additionally, Murray was immediately followed by a performance by the National Presbyterian School Chorus, which sang “O Christmas Tree.”
Yeah, it’s pretty hard to tell what holiday this is celebrating:
In other wingnut news, a group called Mission: America (tagline: “Learn the truth about homosexuality, witchcraft, changing Christian church, radical feminism, and the youth culture”) is offering “risk audits” to help parents determine whether their child’s school is engaged in “homosexual promotion.” The audits are supposed to help parents “clearly understand their responsibility: hold schools accountable for removing pro-homosexual material; and if this is not done, then move children to a different educational environment.”
Among the “warning signs” of “homosexual promotion” in the audit:
• An anti-bullying policy that includes sexual orientation;
• A nondiscrimination policy for teachers;
• Any diversity training;
• Federal funding for any sex education that isn’t explicitly abstinence only;
• Programs that teach about HIV;
• Political-science classes (!)
The audit goes on to say that stories and books that portray gay people as “normal” “indoctrinate all students to accept this lifestyle.”
The more these nutjobs spin their wheels like this, the clearer it becomes just how far outside the mainstream of America they really are. ¡Viva la homosexual Wiccan radical feminist youth revolucion!
