Public High School Students Forced to Read Homosexual Pornography

Via CNS News, the following excerpt is from the play Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes, which until recently was required reading for advanced placement English students at Illinois' Deerfield High School:

Man: What do you want?
Louis: I want you to f*** me, hurt me, make me bleed.
Man: I want to.
Louis: Yeah?
Man: I want to hurt you.
Louis: F*** me.
Man: Yeah.
Louis: Hard?
Man: Yeah. You been a bad boy?
(They begin to f***.)
(Louis slips his hand down the front of Joe's pants. They embrace more tightly. Louis pulls his hand out, smells and tastes his fingers, and then holds them for Joe to smell … they kiss again.)

Here's another:

Man: I think it broke. The rubber. You want me to keep going? (Little pause) Pull out? Should I —
Louis: Keep going. Infect me. I don't care. I don't care.

A little good news: after a six-week battle, enraged parents were able to get this moved from the required to the optional reading list.

The degeneration of our culture makes it hard to protect children from the depraved pornography liberal educrats would like to ram down their throats. Angels in America won two Tony awards, and the HBO version was nominated for an Emmy. Author Tony Kushner won the Pulitzer Prize. Obscenity is now mainstream, compliments of moonbattery.

The new normal.

What would it take to get "Wealth of Nations", "Common Sens", "Democracy in America, or the US Constitution on the reading list? Can you imagine the next generation of young minds if we did?

Thanks for ruining my lunch.

Well of course you can see the literary merit in this masterpiece, can't you? The plot, the character development, the ethical tension?

Nope? Well, neither can I.

Western Civilization continues to decline at break-neck speed. Dont you just love "Progressive" thinking? Since the Prez of Iran says he country has no homosexuals, why dont we send them some? Some? Okay, Lots. Whole plane loads. Then they can have a big Gay Day parade in Tehran.

may the Lord have pity on their dark souls.

just when you thought you heard it all - i'm with pam on this one.

things that make you go "BLECHHHHHHH!"

Pam and nanc have hit on my earlier point to Carlos, namely, that the revulsion people feel for this kind of thing is visceral, not cerebral. They don't feel it because their religion demands it, but rather the converse: their religion forbids it because most people find it revolting. It's much like the visceral reaction to, e.g., necrophilia, coprophilia, or bestiality. Doesn't hurt anyone (arguably), but nevertheless provokes the "Yuck!" reaction.

The original driver is probably a public health consideration, much like the reason most people find certain smells (e.g., that of decay) utterly repellent. It's not something that people can be argued out of, since they weren't argued into it in the first place.

Is it me or does this play have a hint of the cult of death in it? 'Infect me'? Is it actually promoting the idea of spreading AIDS?

Heh, I'm a senior in high school taking AP Literature. Maybe I should read some of Marquis de Sade's novels. I'm sure the AP readers would love an analysis of "Justine," can't be much worse than this trash.

If I supplied that sort of reading material to a minor, I'd probably serve time and be on a sex offender registry for the rest of my life.

Somebody needs to file criminal charges in this matter!

"Heh, I'm a senior in high school taking AP Literature."

Alex, didn't you just tell us last week you were off to the sands of occupied Iraq?

"Is it me or does this play have a hint of the cult of death in it?"

More like one of the "CNS News" editor's more sordid sweaty fantasies...

Nice outfit hashpotatoe.

Hash is correct. I mean there could be only one person named Alex on the ENTIRE internet. Good catch hashpotatoe you're really on the ball. Sorry no pun intended.

JamesB beat me to it. Exactly what I was thinking.

Boy, hash has been throwing some mighty pointed homophobic barbs out lately. Between saying I have "sweaty fantasies built upon homoerotic 'action figures'" and his statement above about the article, you have to wonder how open-minded he really is. Or just maybe he doth protest too much.

"most people find it revolting"... could be an understatement Jay, also could be a description of a TROLL.

"If I supplied that sort of reading material to a minor, I'd probably serve time and be on a sex offender registry for the rest of my life.

Eric S. that is one very good observation. I think prosecution and home schooling are in order.
