The only thing that annoys me more than censorship, is censorship of an entire idea, while allowing the clashing idea to be viewed.
Millions of Web sites are off limits to Palm Beach County students because they promote violence, racism and pornography, but some are criticizing the district for taking censoring too far.
The district has blocked access to gay and lesbian advocacy Web sites, including one belonging to a local group that serves gay youth, while allowing students to surf sites for the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality, Traditional Values Coalition, the American Family Association and Focus on the Family — organizations that oppose gay rights.
So, Palm Beach County school officials have no problem blocking out sites that say positive things about homosexuals --including sites that may help gay children with the pressures of realizing who they are, as well as saving their lives--, but allows them to see gay hate groups like FoF and the AFA. Something needs to be done about this quick, as it is obvious that the anti-gay agenda has plowed into this school district.
