The Threat to Religious Freedom: What Politico Didn’t Print

with one comment

Candi Cushman at Focus on the Family Action’s Drive Thru Blog writes the following after being quoted in Politico regarding her and Focus Action’s objection to (1) the President’s address to the Human Rights Campaign, (2) the nomination of Chai Feldblum, and (3) the continued rule of Safe and Drug Free Schools czar, Kevin Jennings.

Candi tells the rest of the story:

Let’s take the three events one at a time:

President Obama’s speech to the Human Rights Campaign. Among other things, President Obama pledged to eradicate a federal law defending traditional marriage. We need only look to Massachusetts, the first state to legalize full-fledged gay marriage, to understand the threat this poses to both parental rights and religious freedoms. Parents in that state are now being told they can’t exempt their 2nd graders from lessons about same-sex marriage—even if it conflicts with their most deeply held religious convictions.

The intolerance of same-sex marriage advocates was on display for all to see during the debate over California’s Prop. 8, which added wording to the state constitution defining marriage as only between a man and a woman. Prop. 8 supporters were subjected to vehement blackballing and even physical attacks. Church buildings were defaced and some people lost their jobs because of their stance.

Washington Times: ‘Serious questions about Jennings keep piling up’

leave a comment »

From today’s Washington Times about Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools czar, Keving Jennings of StopJennings.org fame:

The Obama administration isn’t adequately vetting important presidential appointees. When it was exposed that former “green jobs czar” Van Jones believed in crazy conspiracies about the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, it was questionable whether anyone had even bothered to Google individuals before they received presidential appointments. In that case, the White House strategy was to refuse to answer questions and hope interest faded away. That approach worked for most of the media, which carried water for President Obama’s scandal-plagued pick. Stonewalling scandal is not what Americans were expecting from an administration that promised to usher in an “unprecedented level of openness in government.” Instead, a pattern of presidential obfuscation is developing.

Jennings On a Mission

The czar leading the Department of Safe and Drug-Free Schools under the US Department of Education is one Kevin Jennings who, in his memoirs, said:

What had [God] done for me, other than make me feel shame and guilt? Squat.  [Sr*w] you, buddy – I don’t need you around anymore.

US Department of Education Really GLSEN’s

leave a comment »

The man tapped by the Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, to lead the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools, Kevin Jennings, has quite the interesting past, according to www.stopjennings.com.  As another “czar” in the Obama administration who is not subject to confirmation by any elected official and serves merely at the pleasure of the Secretary of Education and the President, Mr. Jennings comes to the DOE after starting the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network or GLSEN (pronounced, “glisten”).

Charged with keeping schools drug free and safe, Mr. Jennings has an eye-opening worldview.  You can (and should) read more at stopjennings.com, but here’s a quote from Jennings – the head of DRUG-FREE schools:

I got stoned more often and went out to the beach at Bellows, . . . spending hours watching the planes take off and land at the airport, which is actually quite fascinating when you are drunk and stoned.

Wow.  Read more here.
