Graphic, Profane and Vulgar Homosexual Porn Novel Given to Students at Posh Illinois High School
LifeSiteNews ^ | 3/7/08 | LifeSiteNews

DEERFIELD, IL, March 7, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Deerfield High School, in Deerfield, Illinois, is offering the books "Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes" (Part One & Two) - laced with graphic sexual content, including gay sex, pervasive expletives, religious denigration and mockery - in English classes this spring.

The books contain graphic descriptions of sodomy heretofore only heard of in hardcore homosexual pornography.  With numerous uses of the 'f' word and vulgar sexual references to Mother Teresa, the Mother of Jesus, and God.

"After almost 15 years of school advocacy and reviewing many objectionable books and curricula, I have never seen anything this vulgar and harmful to students," says Lora Sue Hauser, Executive Director of North Shore Student Advocacy.  "Parents, taxpayers and concerned citizens must force themselves to read these excerpts, as horrific as they are, so you know what kids are being exposed to.  The school justifies this egregious choice because of its themes of hope.  Evidently, all great literature with themes of hope have already been exhausted so teachers need to start offering pornography.  We say - enough."

North Shore Student Advocacy (NSSA), an organization to help parents and students when they run into problems in public schools, was made aware of these books last fall when a parent complained.  The books were part of required reading until NSSA filed a formal complaint with the school, asking the books to be reviewed by committee. 

The committee decided to remove the books from required reading, but continued to offer them in the classroom as an optional title.  "Optional Title," according to the principal, means that the student may select the books to study with peers and be guided by the adult, male teacher.  A parental permission slip will be required, but without full disclosure of the sexually explicit content.  This conclusion is unacceptable to the complaining parent and to NSSA.  They are asking that this pornographic book be removed from curriculum completely. 

The State's Attorney's office of Lake County, Illinois, deemed the books "obscene" according to Illinois obscenity laws, violating the "distributing harmful materials to minors" statute.  However, state and federal obscenity laws exempt schools and libraries under "affirmative defense," giving the school and teachers involved near immunity.

“The best thing you can do if your school district is putting this kind of stuff in front of your children. Call the police, don’t talk about the school or to the school, talk about an adult giving sexually explicit material to minors to the authorities and press charges.”

YOU are one SHARP COOKIE!

Yes, let them see it for what it is - not attached to academia.

LOVE YA!

The left can not resist an impressionable young mind anymore than a sexual predator can resist an underage easy mark in a chatroom.

I've said this before elsewhere but I still think it's worth saying...

There was a talk show host out of WABC New York back in the '90's... it doesn't matter what his name was at this point; he's long gone.

This guy said once, speaking of militant gay activists: "these are people who are driven into a rage by the innocence of children."

MOst parents don’t even know what they are consenting too with these stupid permission slips. They ASSUME a school wouldn’t push smut on their kids.

This kind of garbage has been going on for years and years, and it’s never on the GOP radar, which is why I’m leaving it.

This was a popluar play and I think it won a couple of Tonys. HBO got a big cast together and spent some bucks on the TV production. Glorifies aids victims.

I can’t believe the “tolerance” crowd hasn’t shown up here yet.

They always jump at the chance to lecture us about “thenthorthip” and how parents should never have any say whatsoever in their children’s schools’ choices of required reading.

They enjoy labeling such parents as fanatics and unstable.

Surely, they will be here soon to slavishly support the schools who are ramming this down children’s throats.

Homosexuals are sexual degenerates and they want their degeneracy to be mainstream, so they go to work in school systems inveigling their degeneracy in the name of ‘sophistication’. I would guarantee the promoters of this book and their support are homosexuals and/or sexual degenerates who want to immerse youth in sexual things to recruit for their use.

When are conservatives going to wake up???

Government schools are eating the souls of our youth and conservatives are in a coma!

NO! The solution is NOT to attempt the reform of godless, atheistic, Marxist government schools! NO! NO! NO! The very premise upon which they are build is corrupt, and they are NOT redeemable!

The solution is to get children out of these government madrassas of filth and to permanently shut them down! We are running out of time! There is not much time left! If the Marxists ( I call them the Death Eaters) succeed in indoctrinating the next generation of voters all freedom will be lost in the voting booth!

Solution:
Conservatives need to start private scholarship foundations that would award vouchers to students and award grants to individual teachers. Since government is giving its schooling away for free, the private vouchers must meet the full cost of private tuition, otherwise parents will not give up their addiction to free government babysitting.

Once we get children out of the government schools, conservatives must organize a peaceful but MASSIVE school tax revolt that would permanently shut down every government school in the nation!

If our colleges and universities can have endowments in the BILLIONS then conservatives could do this for K-12 education, IF THEY WOULD ONLY WAKE UP FROM THEIR ANESTHESIA!!

By the way, some years ago my husband and I checked out the video of “Angels in America”. We were lured into picking it up since Meryl Streep is a star in the film.

This film mocks faith, and everything that is good about wholesome family living. The only reason this book was assigned by this Marxist government school teacher was to destroy the Christian religious faith of the youth in the class, prepare them for the Marxist take over that is sure to come, and introduce them in the culture of the Marxist Death Eaters.

So...Why, why, why, are conservatives ( ESPECIALLY CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVES!!!) so brain dead!! ( Yes! I am shouting! I am utterly exasperated!)

And now a fool judge in Leftafornia has made it illegal to homeschool your children unless you are qualified/certified to teach in their degenerate school systems!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Homosexuals are moving into the government schools. Homosexuals hire other homosexuals!

Expect a lot more of this.

Also, homosexuals walk hand and hand with the Marxists.

Angels In America briefly is a political epic about the AIDS crisis during the mid-eighties. Deerfield High in Deerfield, Illinois is currently under scrutiny from Americans For Truth about Homosexuality for allowing a senior AP English course at the school to read the play in class. The teacher, Jeff Berger White and the rest of the faculty followed all normal protocal and even recieved the parents permission. The matter is still being revisited.--

A student could have, I guess, read out loud in class:
"Catcher In The Rye". In 1960, a teacher was fired, and later reinstated, for assigning the novel in class(different class relationship).[18] Between 1961 and 1982, The Catcher in the Rye was the most censored book in high schools and libraries in the United States. In 1981, it was both the most censored book and the second most taught book in public schools in the United States. According to the American Library Association, The Catcher in the Rye was the 13th most frequently challenged book from 1990–2000. It was one of the 10 most challenged books in 2005, and came off the list in 2006."

"Angels in America" was the most watched made-for-cable movie in 2003. I watched it myself.

Related: In 1994, < a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Bloom"> Harold Bloom published The Western Canon. The Western canon is a term used to denote a canon of books and more widely, music and art, that has been the most influential in shaping Western culture. It is also a survey of the major literary works of post-Roman Europe. Besides analyses of the canon's various representative works, the major concern of the volume is reclaiming literature from those he refers to as the "School of resentment", the mostly academic critics who espouse a social purpose in reading. Bloom believes that the goals of reading must be "solitary aesthetic pleasure" and "self-insight" rather than the "forces of resentments" -goal: improvement of one's society, which he casts as an absurd aim, writing "The idea that you benefit the insulted and injured, he says, by reading someone of their own origins rather than reading Shakespeare is one of the oddest illusions ever promoted by or in our schools."

Bloom's position is that politics have no place in literary criticism: a feminist or Marxist reading of Hamlet, for example, would tell us something about feminism and Marxism but nothing about Hamlet itself, it being so universal. In addition to the amount of influence Bloom has had on later writers was, if fact, the American playwright Tony Kushner-Angels In America.

I am an avid (often addictive)and inquisitive reader of just about "everything".

Sexual degenerates have degenerate minds. What else would one expect except socialist enslavement, with undercurrents of license to degeneracy. Someone mentioned ‘Tony Awards’ ... they are now like special perches for the hell-bound, to honor their efforts to degenerate our fellow humans further.
