NM high school contest solicits anti-Gay, anti-choice student essays

This came across the PR wire:

FARMINGTON, NM -- The American Civil Liberties Union and other civil rights groups are protesting an essay contest at Farmington's Piedra Vista High School that asked students to explain why preserving marriage between men and women is vital society and why unborn children merit respect and protection.

The ACLU of New Mexico, Equality New Mexico, and NARAL Pro-Choice New Mexico said the contest violates state regulations banning sexual orientation discrimination by teachers. They also object to the ideological slant of such an assignment.

Why am I not more shocked! During my years at the SGN, I have seen a ideological shift in this country. SCARY!!
