Your tax dollars at work

A friend of mine sent me a link to a rather disturbing story concerning a father raising hell over a presentation at his son’s school that he called a “thinly veiled (Christian) ministry”. After reading it, I don’t blame him for being pissed.

The full article

Here’s the part that made me want to bang my head into the wall repeatedly:

Wells demanded the school give equal time to rebut the “misinformation” his son heard: that condoms lead to cancer, that birth control pills are only 20 percent effective, that sexually transmitted diseases are spread by skin contact alone, that third-trimester fetuses can be aborted, that video games lead to homicide, that human papilloma virus can be transferred through condoms and that teens can achieve “second virginity” through abstinence.

The kicker? The school paid this chick $1500 to speak there. Wouldn’t you think that they might, I don’t know, check her background? I mean, for that much money, they should have had an idea of what they were getting.

$1500 to tell lies? Obviously I’m in the wrong line of work.
