Here's some of what Mr. Jennings believes and stands for. According to RegularFolksUnited.com and linked to by Powerlineblog:
If you were looking for a tutor or even a babysitter for your child would you hire...
...a person who founded and ran an organization where instructors had explicitly described to middle school youngsters how to perform homosexual sexual acts?
...a teacher who had been told by a boy of 15 that he had been sexually abused by an older man, but did not tell authorities or his parents or do anything to protect the youngster from the abuser?
...a man who publicly stated that he was inspired by a man who was the number one proponent and promoter of pedophilia in the country?
...a person who wrote the forward to a book called Queering Elementary Education?
...a person who has publicly, in writing and in speeches, ridiculed and demeaned people of faith?
...a person who has publicly, in writing, encouraged young people to defy their parents and religious leaders?
It's reported that Mr. Jennings had these laudatory words to say about a Harry Hay the founder of NAMBLA, the Man Boy Love Association, a pedophilia group.
One of the people that’s always inspired me is Harry Hay, who started the first ongoing gay rights groups in America. In 1948, he tried to get people to join the Mattachine Society [the first American homosexual “rights” group]. It took him two years to find one other person who would join. Well, [in] 1993, Harry Hay marched with a million people in Washington, who thought he had a good idea 40 years before. Everybody thought Harry Hay was crazy in 1948, and they knew something about him which he apparently did not—they were right, he was crazy. You are all crazy. We are all crazy. All of us who are thinking this way are crazy, because you know what? Sane people keep the world the same [sh*tty] old way it is now. It’s the people who think, ‘No, I can envision a day when straight people say, ‘So what if you’re promoting homosexuality?’ Or straight kids say, ‘Hey, why don’t you and your boyfriend come over before you go to the prom and try on your tuxes on at my house?’ That if we believe that can happen, we can make it happen. The only thing that will stop us is our lack of faith that we can make it happen. That is our mission from this day forward. To not lose our faith, to not lose our belief that the world can, indeed, be a different place. And think how much can change in one lifetime if in Harry Hay’s one very short life, he saw change from not even one person willing to join him to a million people willing to travel to Washington to join him. You can see the same changed happen in your lifetime if you believe you can.’’Considering what Mr. Jennings stands for and believes, his appointment makes an mockery of the mandate of the office he's now heading up "safe schools".
Moral bankruptcy is in full bloom at the Obama Department of Education. One more reason to abolish the Department of Education?
