The Gay Straight Alliance at Washington & Jefferson College has put up a tree* decorated with condoms as part of a campaign to increase HIV-AIDS awareness. The Young Republicans (can we please change their name? I think “Young Assholes” would be more accurate) are irate and are demanding that it be taken down, because it’s “a direct attack on Christianity and borderline obscene”. They’re also joining forces with the Christian Student Association and the Newman Club to try and get it removed.
And of course there’s an online poll.
Absolutely. It’s offensive! 57.04%
Nope. Free speech! 36.61%
I’m in the middle on this one. 6.35%
Special bonus!The poll is on the Glenn Beck site, The Blaze, and we all know how much they love it when we crash their polls!
*Missing information: There is no word on whether the Gay Straight Alliance calls it a “Christmas tree”, a “holiday tree”, or a “phallic tribute to raging orgiastic hedonism tree”.
