San Francisco 49ers Join 'It Gets Better' Campaign
In Support Of LGBT Youth
Anti-gay bullying advocates are praising the San Francisco 49ers, who became the first NFL team to join the "It Gets Better" campaign in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth.
Of course, not everyone is pleased:
Larry Jacobs, managing director of the World Congress of Families, tells OneNewsNow why he has a problem with this.
"The problem with the 'It Gets Better' campaign is that it, again, is special rights -- singling out a particular group that is no more harmed than any other groups, and really singling them out for special attention and special rights,
Like the right not to be abused, belittled, and demonized for being who they are? The special right not to be tormented to the point of suicide? Those special rights?
"It really is, again, another example of money and resources being given to a special class, a group of people, and discriminating against many others who are being bullied."
How is that discriminating against, I don't even get it.
But, suddenly you care about kids getting bullied? You care so much that you just can't stand to think that only some of those kids might be getting encouragement? So therefore these kids should not receive any encouragement? Don't pretend like you care!
Please, God, let Larry Jacobs get stuck on an elevator with Ricky Jean-Francois and Isaac Sopoaga!
