more from the Department of Stupid Legislation

A couple of weeks ago, Jessica mentioned this “solution” by Kathy Cox to the gay club in public schools “issue” – students must get parental permission.

Well, now another “solution” is being offered – get rid of all non-academic clubs. So, let’s see. If that rule were adopted everywhere lots of clubs would get cancelled – no glee club (or choir type club), no band clubs, no sports clubs, no Model UN, no Key Club, no Fellowship of Christian Athletes (how’s that for irony?) and countless others.

I particularly like this part of the story though

Controversy has dogged the county since some students asked in January to form what then was called the Gay-Straight Alliance to provide a safe place for gay students and their sympathizers to meet.

Townspeople got upset. About 250 people attended a White County Board of Education meeting Feb. 24.

The controversy also drew a group of Christian fundamentalists from Kansas, who staged vitriolic demonstrations in front of churches and White County High.

The townspeople countered the protest with their own protest, telling the out-of-towners to leave Cleveland.

Yep. Mind your own business Kansas!
