Gandalf actor Sir Ian McKellan tours schools to tell children being gay is okay
dailymail.co.uk ^ | September 24, 2008 | Richard Simpson

Actor Sir Ian McKellen has revealed he is to tour Britain's schools preaching about gay tolerance.

The openly gay star, who is best known to youngsters as Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings blockbusters, wants to encourage other homosexual men to go back to their former schools and lecture pupils on homophobia.

Revealing his campaign in gay magazine Attitude, Sir Ian said: 'I’ve been busy at quite a few schools recently. I went to a wonderful co-ed faith school in Harpenden.

'They were Christians and absolutely determined that their pupils did not discriminate. They invited me to come and give prizes to 13-year-olds in front of the parents and to talk, partly, about being gay.

I thought all Englishmen were gay. They certainly act that way.

Gandolf should be preaching in the Sharia neighborhoods.

And remember, boys and girls, if you don’t eat all your food you’re racist and homophobic.

Homos used to hang around public toilets, hoping to ensnare unwary youth.

Now they lecture to children in public schools.

Disgusting.

Homos can’t reproduce, they can only recruit.

So much for that fiction of "Gays DON'T recruit new members to
their ranks."

Great is Dumbledore from the “Harry Potter” movies going to be at the schools also?? Geez why can’t they just act, shut up, cash their paychecks, and keep their personal lives in their own homes.

Sharia law will take his “tolerance” and twist it to his demise. Leftists are so self destructive. Unfortunately they want to drag us along with them.

So, I let some moron into my home via DVD to play a wise wizard for my kids, and he thinks he can come into their world to screw up everything I’ve taught them about normal sexuality.

I was worried about American actors puking their liberal rhetoric and conservative bashing ways and here’s this dude telling children where to stick their privates...

Am I gonna owe Matt Damon an apology?

NAH!!!

You’ve got these little kids who don’t even know what male/female sex is yet, and here these buggers want to get their gollies by talking about sex with them.

By rights these schools should be deemed a threat to young children and closed.

Damn. The more I know about actors and what they think about issues, the less I get to enjoy movies. I thought he did a pretty good job in those films, and now when I see them I’ll have to think about this...yuck.
