Jennings Helps Fund ACT UP Exhibit at Harvard

'Safe School Czar' Kevin Jennings has helped fund an ACT UP! exhibit open through December 23 at Harvard University. The exhibit is filled with anti-Catholic and pornographic displays at Harvard's Carpenter Center for Visual Arts. A paragraph from the program at the exhibit shows that Jennings condones this.

Jennings, a former member of the radical homosexual activist group founded by Larry Kramer, made a donation to help support the exhibit. While it is his prerogative as to what he does with his money, it speaks volumes about what he thinks about those of us on the right and what he wishes our children to learn about homosexuality.

MassResistance has posted some of the things that are on display at what is supposed to be one of the most prestigious institutions of higher learning in the country. I personally find them so offensive that I will not post them here, although I do encourage you to view at least some of the items on display so as to be informed. I will warn you. The images are EXTREMELY graphic and offensive. This is the tamest one on MassResistance's site.

The picture depicts Cardinal O'Connor with a condom with the phrase "This one prevents AIDS" under the condom. Real nice, huh?

Here are some of the activities that ACT UP! have been involved in during the late 1980's and early 1990's:

  • Demonstrated outside the Boston’s Cathedral of the Holy Cross to protest Cardinal Law's opposition to Mayor Flynn's proposed needle-exchange program and condom education (1988).

  • Staged a "die in" at Mass. General Hospital in March to protest the unavailability of PCP drug AP.

  • Protested Astra Pharmaceutical Products’ refusal to release the experimental antiviral drug Foscarnet.

  • Disrupted opening night at the San Francisco Opera.

  • Protested design of clinical trials planned by Harvard School of Medicine.

  • Jammed phone lines of health insurance database company protesting their use of "sexual deviation" classification.

  • Halted Boston’s trolley service and traffic in front of Harvard School of Public Health to press the federal government into approving two new AIDS drugs.

Hey, I'm all for decrying discrimination. But where is the tolerance within the gay community for those of us who may not agree with their radical agenda? We hear the stories of gays being targeted for simply being gay, but what about a gay who rapes or targets a straight? Why don't we ever hear stories about that? And don't tell me it never happens. I'd bet my mortgage that it does. In any case, wrong is wrong.

The militant gay community needs to realize one thing. We here on the right are not discriminating against anyone. We hate the sin (if we so believe) but love the sinner. They enjoy every Constitutional right we all do. To bestow a special set of rules on one group because of lifestyle is anti-Constitutional. What would be next? Special civil rights for those who enjoy raping or murdering other human beings because they enjoy it? The slippery slope will have been created.

The question remains: Does Kevin Jennings belong anywhere near the office that helps form public education policy when he supports this? HELL NO!!! He needs to be gone. The sooner the better.
