from Gay Activism in the Schools
May 27, 2004 - Grove City College Psychology Professor Dr. Warren Throckmorton appeared on "The O'Reilly Factor" May 21, 2004, to discuss the Gay, Lesbian, And Straight Education Network's (GLSEN) same-sex marriage curriculum for public schools.
Dr. Throckmorton was invited on the show to challenge claims made by GLSEN leader Kevin Jennings that the marriage curriculum is fair and balanced in the way it discusses same-sex marriage. Jennings was on O'Reilly's show on February 11, 2004, when he made this comment: "...our curriculum is designed to give them [students] a fair and balanced set of resources concerning gay marriage..."
Dr. Throckmorton challenged that statement as inaccurate. Throckmorton told O'Reilly that the GLSEN curriculum includes "... eight pro-gay marriage web sites that are listed as resources. There are no web sites or organizations listed for further study by students that would take the opposing view. A student going through this curriculum would have no idea what the rationale would be to oppose gay marriage."
GLSEN's curriculum, says Throckmorton, "leads students to a conclusion rather than gives them both sides of the issue and invites them to make their own conclusion."
Throckmorton told O'Reilly that he and his associates had written a critique of GLSEN's materials and that this critique was available for downloading at drthrockmorton.com. Throckmorton's site also features a brief segment from Jennings' interview with O'Reilly in February.
Dr. Throckmorton discusses the binary nature of marriage and the possibility that polygamous relationships may be in our future if the courts have their way.
