If they're allowed to watch it, that is. The frothing freaks are trying to mark the event as Not Suitable for Right-Wing Kiddies:
Students in the Federal Way, Washington school district must have parental permission slips to watch the Inauguration because, according the school district--which also put a moratorium on An Inconvenient Truth while the board investigated whether a screening adhered to district policies:Ah, but it does if you're a right-winger looking for a way to wriggle out of letting the kiddies see a dirty Dem take power while treating gay people like actual human beings:
The concern is that the televised inauguration was not listed in syllabus handed out at the beginning of the term. The district considers the inauguration a full length documentary, unlike some newspaper or internet reference articles which do not require pre-approval.
Let's look up "documentary" in an "internet reference article" which won't require me to leave mom's basement (aka Rapunzel's ivory tower) to get a signed permission slip:
A documentary is a creative work of non-fiction.
Federal Way school district, you flunk! A news broadcast, in real time doesn't actually equal "documentary."
Never one to be outdone, Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission is telling parents not to let their children watch what will be the "most perverted [inauguration] in our nation’s history" and warns that God just might destroy the nation's capital because of it:
The inauguration of Barack Obama as the President of the United States is going to be historic for many reasons, not all of them good. Obama’s inauguration may help move race relations forward in America, but Obama’s inaugural events are a major step backwards for historic Christian values. CADC must issue this WARNING message: Don’t let your children watch!
National events ought to unify and elevate the nation by celebrating what is virtuous, such as God and patriotism. Obama is making a terrible mistake by polluting his inaugural events with sexual sin. Some one ought to remind him that he wasn’t elected mayor of Sodom.
Barack Obama’s inauguration will have the dubious distinction of being the most perverted in our nation’s history ... In order to be consistent in using this kind of reasoning, Obama ought to have a stripper lead off the inaugural parade followed by the Hell’s Angel’s Motorcycle Drill Team followed by the Crips Precision Handgun Corp. and the Transvestite Fashion Police. Just because something exists in society does not mean it is good and is to be paraded in front of everyone, especially children.
On this historic occasion of the Inauguration of the 44th President of the United States, I must unfortunately recommend that you keep the kids away from the TV and pray that God will not rain fire and brimstone down on Washington DC.
What's got his panties in a bunch? Like you had to ask:
Flamboyant Homosexual Inaugural..Robinson will be appearing with the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington D. C. which forces all Christians around the world to compromise their character if they want to watch the inauguration....To ensure no one misses the perversion, the Inaugural parade will include a homosexual marching band with their rainbow flags flying proud with millions of our nation's children and Christians watching.No wonder he thinks it's the end of days. To him, a gay choir topped off with a gay pastor and a gay marching band must seem like Armageddon.
Obama. I'm still not giving you a pass on letting Warren give the invocation, but kudos for getting so very far up these fucktards' noses.
