A recently added minor at the University of Lafayette is causing quite a controversy. Last semester UL became the first university in Louisiana to offer a minor in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender studies.
Today, Congressman Jeff Landry came out in opposition towards the program.
In a letter addressed to UL's President, Dr. Joseph Savoie, Landry request that the university eliminate the new program. As a proud alumnus, Landry says he been so grateful of the education he received at UL, but he is concerned if future graduates will be able say the same.

Good idea. Where is that Minor going to help them get a job?
How many useless lesbian and gay “professors” will be ripping off the taxpayers????? This is all about homo freaks with a PhD stealing from the producers
Yes, academia needs to stop with all this “flavor of the month” studies: So many universities now have “gay studies” not to mention women’s studies, African American studies-—it has become a hodge podge of political correctness which is making a mockery of the academy.
Is this a land grant University? If so, it’s time to invoke Morrill’s purposes for the Federal land grant.
1. Economic growth.
2. Economic growth.
3. Economic growth.
For 50 points, write a short essay of less than 100 words addressing how LGBT studies will increase the economic growth of the great state of Louisiana.
Unfortunately, in today’s climate, I am afraid it WILL help them get jobs with Google, Starbuck’s, Home Depot, and hundreds of other corporations as well as public schools and universities. I can just see job titles such as : “Administrator of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Human Resource Project Coordinator” or “Gay Sales Marketing Director” and “Sensitivity and Awareness Training Seminar Coordinator for LGBT awareness issues”.
Well done, Congressman Landry!
You don't get it, This is a jobs program for idiots professors paid for by the taxpayer in this Louisiana State University. The private sector producing class paying for public sector parasites. Gay parasites in this case.
I hear you, but when and how is it going to be stopped?
Yep, the way the world is, we’re supposed to be liberal.
The liberal view is that this is a great leap forward in education.
And the liberal view is also that, anyone opposed, by definition, hates homosexuals. And that alleged hatred means that anyone opposed must be destroyed.
Right, destroyed or rehabilitated via one of their “queering the campus” or “queering the workplace” programs.
What a gay degree.
Good luck in the job hunt!
Especially since Bawny Frank retired from Congress, there are fewer openings now for Congressional Pages.
