Kevin Jennings is not qualified under any ethical standard to be entrusted
with the safety of our nation's public school children. Therefore I urge
Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to immediately call for Jennings's
resignation. I also call on my members of Congress to urge the Secretary
of Education to ask for Mr. Jennings' resignation.
Jennings is the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education
Network (GLSEN), which pushes so-called "anti-bullying" policies which
even GLSEN admits are really about promoting "affirmation" of homosexual
behavior in the school system.
Jennings is intolerant of the "religious right," 90% of whom enroll their
children in public schools, and said in a 2000 speech "I'm trying not to
say '[F---] 'em'...I don't care what they think. Drop dead!"
He wants homosexual indoctrination of students at all levels, having
written the forward to a book entitled "Queering Elementary Education,"
and saying in 2004, "Ex-gay messages have no place in our nation's public
schools...There is no 'other side' when you're talking about lesbian, gay
and bisexual students."
By his own admission he failed his legal duty to report what he believed
to be a case of statutory rape when a young student approached him for
counsel after the boy had been preyed on by an older adult in a local bus
station bathroom. Jennings' main piece of advice: "I hope you know how to
use a condom."
He writes in his 2006 memoir without any remorse of frequently getting
"drunk and stoned" when he was a teenager.
It is time for the "Safe and Drug Free Schools" Czar to resign.
