S.C. Legislators Vote to Punish Colleges for Assigning Homosexual Books

COLUMBIA — South Carolina legislators want to punish two public colleges for assigning books on homosexuality to freshmen.

The House budget-writing committee on Wednesday tentatively approved a spending plan for 2014-15 that would cut $52,000 from the College of Charleston and $17,142 from the University of South Carolina Upstate.

Last summer, the College of Charleston assigned the Alison Bechdel book, “Fun Home,” to incoming freshmen. Bechdel’s book describes her childhood with a closeted homosexual father and her own coming out as a lesbian.

USC Upstate assigned “Out Loud: The Best of Rainbow Radio,” referring to South Carolina’s first gay and lesbian radio show, for a required course for all freshmen, which included lectures and other out-of-classroom activities meant to spark discussions about the book.

    Depends what side of the fence your on. Schools censor stuff all the time, especially if it even has a hint of the Lord Jesus.

    I cannot believe what I read, the hypocrisy! That IS exactly what that college is doing, PUSHING THEIR PERSONAL BELIFS (PRO-HOMOSEXUAL) ONTO THE STUDENTS, and that is why those lawmakers wanted to make that course an “option” not “requirement”. That Cobb lady has it all backwards and her FEAR of losing jobs and recruits to the state for people who speak against homosexuality just proves what Ive been saying all along-the mark of the Beast-you now cannot buy, sell or trade with out the mark of “PRO-HOMOSEXUAL” on your forehead or you will be fired, cancelled, sued and imprisoned! People can no longer do anything in this country with out the approval of the Homosexual Beast!
