NEA Wrap Up

Well, not that much of a wrap up really.

The original resolution language that drew the ire of the American Family Association was not passed. However, the substitute language was passed. It will be reported in the press two ways: one, that the language was sent back to committee at the request of the Alabama delegation and two, that the substitute language supporting civil unions and gay marriage in the states already recognizing them did pass. Both apparently are true. Only in the NEA can something pass and still be referred to committee after it passed. I am told that is what happened in this case. Here is my guess: The AL leaders needed something to offset a rebellion back in Sweet Home.

No word as yet from Wayne Besen with his accounting of the fracas on the convention floor last Saturday. Strange to me that Wayne has not commented. Here is a pic of Wayne (left) and Greg (right) discussing things.

Comments:
Perhaps Wayne doesn't care to.

Anyhoo, Quinlan has commented.

It appears that they wish to present an alternative viewpoint to "information that says that it's okay to be gay".

And what could that only be?

Why, of course, information that says that it's NOT okay to be gay.

Is anti-anyone ever a suitable message for schools?
 
some ex-gays ARE anti-gay. some ex-gays ARE NOT anti-gay. they are just ex-gay. why is that so hard to accept?
 
Anon,

Feel free to nominate such a person. Give an example.

I willing to guess they do not run an exgay group.
 
I don't understand why Wayne doesn't comment. He doesn't usually have a problem with that.
 
I don't know but I think he's cute.

We really need to have a booth at upcoming NEA events featuring former-ex-gays.
