A spokesman for the school board in Montgomery County, Md., says the slurs against a minority group by the superintendent are not an issue.
Thats after Supt. Joshua Starr told students that a flyer sent home by an advocacy organization supporting those who have chosen to leave the homosexual lifestyle contained information that was really, really disgusting.
Officials with Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays had utilized the school districts services to outside groups that allow them to distribute flyers to students on occasion.
Students at a public forum then had asked Starr about the flyers, which provided information to students with unwanted same-sex attractions, discouraged name-calling and labeling, and urged tolerance for former homosexuals.
Starrs response was that the flyers are reprehensible and deplorable, according to a report in the Washington Post. The Washington Examiner quoted Starr blasting PFOX.
We cant really do much about it unless we wanted to cut off all flyer distribution, which is an option, he said. This group has figured out how to use that law to spread what I find to be a really, really disgusting message, frankly.
PFOX officials suggested that the board of education should reprimand Starr for violating the districts nondiscrimination policy.
We call on the Montgomery County Board of Education to enforce its nondiscrimination policy and censure Starr immediately, said Regina Griggs, executive director of PFOX. The policy mandates that schools provide an atmosphere where differences are understood and appreciated, and where all persons are treated fairly and with respect in an environment free of discrimination and abuse. Clearly Superintendent Starr has violated the boards policy.
She continued, Starrs verbal abuse, disrespectful behavior, and slurs against the ex-gay community amount to hate and illegal sexual orientation discrimination, which are all forbidden by the policy.

Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Maryland - great State to be from! Of course if this keeps up, they will wither and die from reduced taxes... They are one of the most highly taxed States of our union - a great place to leave.
Not as disgusting as buggery.
I know a couple of “ex-straights” that became gay. I don’t know, nor have I ever heard of an ex-gay.
I have. It is not unusual for people who lead the gay lifestyle to become straight.
But... But... But...
I thought the gay community professed that their sexuality was genetic and not a choice. ???? Ex-gays??
Starr’s verbal abuse, etc. against the ex-gay community amount to hate (speech) and sexual discrimination...”
Hoist on his own petard!
That doesn't work out very well for *your* reputation:

If you want to leave your wife and children for a life of rampant sexual promiscuity in the homo bars, Great! We're pullin' for ya.
If you want to slice off perfectly functioning, healthy sex organs and pump unnatural hormones into your body for your remaining lifetime, Marvelous! We'll support you all the way.
But if you want to change or, at least, reign in harmful, unhealthy, unnatural, immoral sexual behavior, you're despicable!!!
By the way, how would you know if you've never met an ex-homosexual? I'm really curious. The fact that they're not likely to be "all about themselves" like homos always are might be a reason.
“Only two things come out of Texas...STEERS and QUEERS. And I don’t see no horns on your head...”
Happens all the time. Julie Cypher, onetime “spouse equivalent” of singer Melissa Etheridge, is one reasonably prominent example.
I've known a number of men and women who were bisexual. In such a case, the person can choose to have sex exclusively with one sex or the other. They could still be ATTRACTED to somebody of the same sex, they would just choose not to act upon it.
"Sexual orientation" appears to be a spectrum. Some are exclusively straight with not the slightest interest in others of the same sex, some are exclusively homosexual, some in between.
1) with homosexuals now allowed in US military,
2) and since many in our military marry foreigners,
3) wouldn't that be a backdoor fast-tracking of American citizenship...
4) ...for more free stuff?
Wow, at 1st I thought - miracle of miracles - an Ed. Supt. from Monty Co. was being pilloried for saying something against homos.
But no, he was only bashing those who try to make themselves normal. Same old Monty Co., same old Pubic Education.
If retarded people wish and work to try to become normal, should we call them “disgusting” and “reprehensible”?
Maybe you’d say “futile”, maybe even “foolish”, but there is no reason to insult them as moral reprobates for trying to make an effort.
