Homophobic Lecture at Dunkerton High School
I had never heard of “You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International” (quite possibly the most terrifying name for an anti-gay organization), but after seeing this video of one of their horrible “lectures”, I thought I might do a little digging on these scumbags. It turns out this organization has a habit of tricking schools into allowing them access to students through abstinence funded programs (your hard earned tax dollars at work). Some of their methods are extreme to say the least: in 2007, they showed graphic images of aborted fetuses, and made the girls sing a misogynistic song about submissiveness. Parents were less than amused, but the group continues to operate with impunity.
Their website is slick for a reason: over the years they’ve received funding from rich and powerful individuals, chief among them is Michelle Bachmann, who shares their extreme attitudes in regards to homosexuality. Their blog posts range from “Birther” conspiracies to creationism with a little paranoia mixed in. The founder Bradlee Dean is a straight talker, encouraging violence and bullying in his endless crusade to try and “restore America to its Biblical and Constitutional foundation” (a shockingly ignorant statement if I’ve ever heard one).
On the plus side, they seem to have few fans on Facebook, and almost no shares. I guess not everyone is proud to be associated with these dickholes!
