    I'd like to see some evidence of this claim.

    Who cares about who "claims" to be gay? Gay people are gay whether or not they claim to be so. Whether or not one "claims" to be gay is irrelevant to whether or not they actually are.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Are they banning the teaching of heterosexuality too?

    In the 50's and 60's teachers would try to get you to write with your right hand... embracing the 'normal' right-handed lifestyle.

    So, now Tenn will have more government regulation and oppression. Way to go TeaBaggers!!

    Re: Tenn. Senate OKs ban on teaching of homosexuality

    Anybody ever hear of "circumstance of birth?" Nawwwwh....obviously not. Dark age mythology is alive and well.

    Another dumbing down society ploy by homophobic power mongers.

    Not that it really will make any difference...but I'm straight. Oh...and I don't recall having the pleasure of choosing to be such, but I bet a lot of people remember doing that just hours before their decent to earth where they would take over their infant host just moments before birth so that they could live out their given lifespan without life-long persecution.

    All those who believe that homosexuality is contagious...please raise your hand!

    Re: Tenn. Senate OKs ban on teaching of homosexuality

    This bill is the education system equivalent of DADT. There are children who realize they are gay at a young age. My friend knew he was attracted to other males when he was 12. He went to a private school and was able to talk about it with the guidance counsellor there. I don't know what it would have been like in a public school.

    The law is unnecessary and shows a completely lack of priorities. If parents don't want it taught in schools they can should petition the individual schools to not teach it.

    The new law is just as extreme as the ones in California that require it to be taught. This country has no sense of proportion anymore.
