I’m sure that I’m not the first person to notice this bizarre phenomenon, but I definitely find it odd that any time a group of right-wing Christians decides to get up on their high horse and start handing out Christian morality-based laws, they almost invariably do so under the name of the “Family Soandso”:
The Family Party has its first meeting planned for Tuesday night, part of an effort to gather the 343 signatures necessary to become a recognized political party. It already has a web site selling merchandise, and has published an extensive platform there.
Provincial Green Party Leader Sharon Labchuk takes exception to the P.E.I. Family Party’s stance on homosexuality. The Family Party’s platform includes a section under education titled “Freedom from sexual indoctrination.” It says the province should ban all school material that normalize what the group calls “deviant sexual practices.” Among other things, that includes sodomy and lesbianism.
It is only in the mind of the right-wing fundagelical that government-enforced bans on what subjects can and cannot be taught in schools is “freedom from indoctrination”, but I’ll let that pitch go by with nothing more than that comment. I’ll also leave it to people who have more sex than I do to comment on what constitutes ‘deviant’, except to say that “sodomy” is a really stupid term that encompasses much more than mere butt secks (and it’s pronounced ‘lesbianity‘).
