Focus on the Anus is back at it again, this time on its Citizenlink blog Drive Thru. Not content to just do a “Jesus is the reason for the season” kind of obsession, author “Candi” ludicrously accuses Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) of “revealing its dark side” and sexualizing Old Saint Nick.
At issue this time is a GLSEN fundraiser featuring a theatrical play called Santa Claus is Coming Out!# p #2_7 # ad skipped = true #
GLSEN’s fundraiser invitation says the play depicts “Santa in his heartfelt struggle to reconcile his romantic relationship with Italian toy maker Giovanni Geppetto.” Pictures on a Web site promoting the production depict Santa in not-so-subtle sexually suggestive situations. The play also mocks those who support traditional values.# p #3_7 # ad skipped = true #
It’s sad that GLSEN, which claims that it wants to protect kids, has chosen to use a fundraising tool that perverts the innocence of Christmas and sexualizes the longtime, child-revered icon of Santa Claus.# p #4_7 # ad skipped = true #
…Clearly homosexual activists like [the play’s writer and performer, Jeffrey] Solomon have no qualms about using shock tactics to expose children to homosexuality. And it’s sad that GLSEN promotes these tactics.# p #5_7 # ad skipped = true #
Yawn. The fundies are breathtaking — they just throw caution to the wind and toss batsh*ttery so extreme out there, that only pushes the GOP further into the margins. Keep it coming, folks.
The NY benefit for GLSEN is on December 8th @ 6:00 p.m. Get your tickets today.
