According to no less of an authority than Concerned Women For America’s Robert Knight, all but 5 teachers in the San Leandro Unified School District worship the ancient god Baal.
The startling discovery was made when 5 teachers in the school district decided that their religion (apparently not Baal worship) required that their classroom be an unsafe place for gay students. They objected to including a sign in their class which said that “this is a safe place to be who you are.”
According to Knight, the heated debate going on at San Leandro High is not about safety at all. “This is about bullying people and saying you will kneel down and bow to the Baal god of homosexuality — or we’ll make your life very miserable,” he says.
In arguing for an unsafe place for gay students, Bob Knight argues, “What [such policies] produce is intolerance toward anyone who won’t accept homosexuality.”
To put that into English, he’s upset that these policies produce intolerance to the intolerant. It seems to me that if you’re in the “won’t accepting” business, you can’t complain too much about people who won’t accept your “won’t accepting”. I would think you’d feel right at home with intolerance.
But, then again, what do I know? I didn’t even know that Baal was the god of homosexuality.
