Gandalf the Gay Blade
This article in today's London Daily Mail ought to open a few eyes.
Actor Ian McKellen is best known these days for playing Gandalf the Wizard in the Lord of the Rings films. Here in the States, he might not be quite as well known as a homosexual activist who has ripped the Book of Leviticus out of Gideon Bibles in hotel rooms. I'm not making that up.
Aside from what J.R.R. Tolkien might think of McKellen, or what God might think of McKellen for violating His Word, I have to wonder what parents here would think about homosexual actors propagandizing their children in school settings. To an innocent child's mind, if a beloved character such as Gandalf says gay is okay, then a moral quandary is set up.
When are parents finally going to get a gut full of this stuff and begin getting mad, AND begin reclaiming the authority that the state is asserting over their children?
Update: In the last line, I referenced parents reclaiming authority being usurped by the state. It's true that public education loves to bring in non-employee, yet notable figures to advocate for things like this. The state system indeed shares in the blame. But lest it be forgotten, note that the original Daily Mail article referenced a school calling itself a "Christian" school. If they're banging the gong for acceptance and approval of homosexuality, "apostate" would be a better choice of word.
