FRC opposes Obama’s school safety nominee

Democrat President Barack Obama has nominated Kevin Jennings to head the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools.

The Family Research Council has issued a press release announcing their disapproval. I found it linked at Muddling Towards Maturity.


As the former president of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network, Mr. Jennings worked tirelessly to bring the homosexual agenda into our nation’s classrooms, even in grades as young as kindergarten. In addition, in his autobiography, Mr. Jennings expresses no regret about his past drug abuse or recognition of its risks. Instead, he seems amused. In his words, “[W]atching the planes take off and land is actually quite fun when you are drunk and stoned.”

Jennings has spoken publicly about a high school student he once counseled who was in a sexual relationship with an older man he met in a bus station – yet Jennings never reported this abuse to the authorities, the school, or the child’s parents.

How could Christians vote for Obama?

It might be worth reflecting for a moment on who put Obama into office. (Source: First Things)

Should Christians have voted for Obama?
Should Christians have voted for Obama?

I’m sure that many of these Christians (?) voted for Obama because they didn’t like spending 550 billion dollars on two wars to protect America from Islamic fascism while liberating people living in dictatorships. Or maybe because they didn’t see how taxing the greedy rich could be bad. Or maybe they thought that Obama was pro-life and pro-family regardless of his actual voting record.

Ideas have consequences. Elections matter.

UPDATE: Whoa! Just noticed this story at Pamela Geller’s blog. It turns out that Jennings is worse than described by the FRC! Warning: the link describes extreme sexual practices supported by Jennings.

  1. Elections indeed do have consequences.

    I wonder if there is any threshold where these people will suddenly say, “allright, that’s it…how many bad decisions can this guy make? Why did I vote for him?”

    My hunch is that there is no threshold…they’re gonna stay with him no matter what.

    Call me a pessimist.


    1. Rich, I don’t think that the ethnic Protestants and nominal Catholics know the goals of their professed religion as much as they know the secular-socialist goals of happy feelings, irresponsibility, and “social justice”. They love wealth redistribution. They are perfectly willing to sell out Jesus for the money they can confiscate from their neighbor’s wallet.

      And they are terribly worried that the 550 billion spent liberating people in foreign countries so they can become Christians without having their heads chopped off. The trillions for global warming or auto-union bailouts? That they approve of. Not one of them understands that government control of the free market decreases their liberties.

      I’m furious with Christians who voted for Obama. I don’t mind non-Christians being bad, they are allowed to be bad – they’re not Christians. But Christians ought to know better.
