"Homosexuality is Not a Human Right"

The College of DuPage, a two-year community college in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, just published a piece in their student newspaper that argued that gay students -- nay, gay people everywhere -- are not entitled to human rights.

Gay Rights.Change.Org reports:
The piece, "Homosexuality is Not a Human Right," was authored by a representative from the group Heterosexuals Organized for a Moral Environment (HOME).

Ever heard of them?

They're just your average, run of the mill fringe group with a web site that says gay people should be forced to use separate public restrooms, and that homosexuality should be classified as a psychological disorder by medical professionals.

How very ... 1950s?

So why would a student newspaper at an institute for higher learning decide that it was kosher to run a piece questioning whether gay people deserve human rights?

Good question.

Send the editor a message and ask what we're all thinking: "WTF?"
