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.

Just revise them to read mohammed instead of Jesus.Then see if it is still “literature”.
I’m sure the school official who authorized the use of this material during class time would want to have his or her name made known to as many voters as possible in Deerfield, Illinois.
And the taxpayers are enablers for this recruitment of children to the damnable homosexual life style by providing the funding. Wake up, sheeple! Satan is devouring your children by exposing them to these evil teachers in government schools.
As I recall, the official motto of Deerfield Illinois is: “To Live, To Work, To Shop” I’m not making this up.
This excretion disparages Mother Teresa, the Blessed Virgin and God Himself.
My opinion: it has to do with very powerful feelings of self-hatred they experience.
Man, the worst we read was The Scarlet Letter.
Out of curiosity I tuned in, briefly, to the HBO miniseries called Angels in America. Within 10 minutes there was a scene where an Angel was coming down from the heavens to ‘mate’ with a gay guy. That was it for me. Half the people in this country don’t care how destructive the Gay Agenda is. Our half knows but doesn’t have the appropriate power (such as in the public school system) to do anything about it. Sad state of affairs.
Homosexual activists do not want just tolerance they want to remake the world in their dangerous world view. They want to use sexual imagery and fetishism to warp the minds of young people early so they will have a life long ambiguity where gender and sexuality is concerned. They want to change the sexual morals of our time and in many places they have. They were the first to introduce the ideas of anal and excrement fetishes and low forms of pseudo sexual behavior which is highly facilitatory to the spread of pathogens. There is a culture war going on.
If you care about your children then you need to pay attention what kind of stuff is being offered in public schools and if you really do wish to teach your children about homosexuality and its dangers then dig deeper for your own benefit. It will not be a pleasant journey but it most certainly will inoculate you against the minimization of the dangers of the politics of this horrid behavior. There is a not so hidden history that the left wishes to glaze over with sitcom comedies like Will and Grace. There is a history of the efforts of gay activists to reduce the age of consent(to legalize pederasty), to in filtrate the classroom, to infect society with a phony version of civil rights which has as its goal to make it impossible to criticize or stop them.
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. It doesn’t matter if you win. Intimidation is the tactic that gay activists use and I recommend using it against them. I’d even bait some of these teachers into stepping over the line. The left can not resist an impressionable young mind anymore than a sexual predator can resist an underage easy mark in a chatroom. Conservatives need to have their own kind of activism. Don’t let the conversation stay polite and stay focused on protecting the children from adults in the public school system who are overly interested in the sex lives of kids.
“The best thing you can do if your school district is putting this kind of stuff in front of your children. Call the police, dont 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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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). 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 19902000. 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.
I don’t understand your last comment and it’s relationship to my post.
The complicity of the government school defenders and the assistance of so-called “good” and Christian government teachers in supporting, aiding, abetting this Death Eating evil MAKES ME SICK!
Actually the Deerfield story was about a student who wanted to read that play and teacher of that class getting permission to read and discuss this AIDS related subject/award winning literary work (to some, so becomes controversial) in class and they went the route of permission to do so as controversial to some. Depends on how you read the play-it is not about voyeurism as someone has projected XXX Rate video/bookstore photo above. Deerfield told parents of this one English class before the play was read by that student- Angels in America.
There is more to Angels in America than being just a "paperback romance type novel"(-have you seen what women writers say in these things?). It will remain a controversy, just like Catcher In The Rye..even though Angels in America is not considered as shocking at this timeframe in Western society, but it still brings out the same bookburners.
Guide your children as long as you can, but love them always.
The mistake conservatives make is that we go into battle believing that there are ground rules to the battle and that we have an honorable opponent. That is exactly what we don’t have. The left wins battles through keeping the debate outside of its objectives. There is no benefit to us to play the game by the rules of the left. The key to turning back the tide of gay activism is children. Teenage males who become sexually active in the homosexual lifestyle have a very high mortality rate. The whole idea that coming out is a positive thing is factually untrue. The chances of an individual catching a serious disease skyrocket as do the number of sexual partners. Yet we are encouraged to turn a blind eye to what is still a very ugly subculture.
What can I say. People don’t read and people don’t care to research. It is easier to think of your gay friends and pretend they live life just as you do. They don’t, I know personally of that truth. A friend of mine has serious medical problems because of the lifestyle he got caught up in and another ended up dead. There is no compassion in pretend.
It is a symptom of the modern world that so much that is accepted as common knowledge is popular fiction. So many pleasantries are really veiled horrors that keep us faithless and keep us chained.
If we don't act soon, all freedom will be lost when the next generation of government school indoctrinated Marxists go to the voting booth!
In post #29 I propose a solution! We haven't much time remaining!
By the way, I will be **very***very***very*** surprised if the Three Stooges ( Rush, Sean, and OReily) cover this story on their programs. What wimps!
That needs to be said again! I hope you don't mind if I repeat your statement at every opportunity!
Please read post #29. I propose a solution that should be part of a large plan of action.
You have correctly pointed out that the homosexual/liberal/Marxist coalition does not fight fair.
Do you have any suggestions for fighting them ( peacefully within the rule of law)?
Good Lord. I didn’t care for Angels in America but it sure sounds like the author didn’t actually bother to read the play.
Its about Ray Cohn,chief counsel to the Government Committee on Operations of the Senate - he is one McCarthy’s key henchmen, condemned by the Senate for unethical behavior in coordination with McCarthy.
In other sources Cohn is “a Jew who persecuted Jews; a gay who persecuted gays.”
Cohn’s protege is Mormon and there is a fair amount of commentary there.
In the HBO mini-series version Cohn is played by Al Pacino.
Cohn eventually dies of aids and the play has a lot to do with how AIDs was not taken seriously soon enough.
It broke the record held by Roots for most Emmy’s. The play itself has won dozens of awards
Roots had a lot of controversial subject matter too but we didn’t hide it from kids.
That said, I didn’t like the play or the mini-series but it is clearly a real work of literature that should not be censored. The teacher, Jeff Berger White and the rest of the faculty claim they followed all normal protocal and even recieved the parents permission.
I think that is probably true. The left in general seems to have a great disdain for innocence. It is not that we are flawed and should aspire to greatness but instead that we are flawed and should aspire to be nothing more which is the emptiness of their mission. Also within the Homosexual community there is a history of predatory behavior that is disregarded. Most homosexual men began their journey being molested or accosted by older men. When you look at family histories of homosexuality it often can be tied not as much to genetics as it is to the fact that the family has a hidden darkness of molestation within it.
It is not a coincidence that homosexuals account for nearly a third of all molestations. What is horrible is the very activism that claims to free the homosexual to be themselves also traps them so they can never address the abuse they faced as a child with the high likelihood that they will contribute to the abuse of others in their attempt to deal with the abuse they faced. That is the horrible secret. A whole class of people are trapped in a hell built with a wall of compassion. It is horrible but that is the way of evil. It seeks to trap us. It is no different for the poor in the inner cities who are trapped in the hell of never making enough money to thrive and always having to rely on government while they are steeped in bitterness and anger which guarantees they will live a life of subservience perpetually nursing their wounds that are never allowed to heal.
>>The best thing you can do if your school district is putting this kind of stuff in front of your children. Call the police, dont talk about the school or to the school, talk about an adult giving sexually explicit material to minors to the authorities and press charges.
That would likely help the publisher of the play and the mini-series based on the play more than anything you could possibly do. Trying to put people in jail for teaching a play that has won so many awards that is about McCarthy’s chief henchman would be so ironic it would get world wide press and would be labeled all over the world as intolerance of freer speech and thought.
I guess you’d have to arrest Al Pacino too and prosecute HBO for making and showing the mini-series.
I’m afraid this is a case where whoever started this didn’t actually read the play or learn what it was about. You won’t help anything for prosecuting people for teaching a play about a secretly gay man who worked for McCarthy..since its true.
