What's got the whackos up in arms this week? Wacky Week.
An elementary-school event in which kids were encouraged to dress as
members of the opposite gender drew the ire of a Christian radio group, whose
angry broadcast prompted outraged calls to the district office.
Students at Pineview Elementary in Reedsburg had been dressing in
costume all last week as part of an annual school tradition called Wacky Week.
On Friday, students were encouraged to dress either as senior citizens or as
members of the opposite sex.
A local resident informed the Voice of Christian Youth America on
Friday. The Milwaukee-based radio network responded by interrupting its morning
programming for a special broadcast that aired on nine radio stations throughout
Wisconsin. The broadcast criticized the dress-up day and accused the district of
promoting alternative lifestyles.
"We believe it's the wrong message to send to elementary students,"
said Jim Schneider, the network's program director. "Our station is one that
promotes traditional family values. It concerns us when a school district
strikes at the heart and core of the Biblical values. To promote this to
elementary-school students is a great error."
It must be because the Ellen person wears pantsuits. Or could it be that this guy is the greatest threat to American Values since Osama bin Laden?
