Noxious logic alert

From the Chicago Tribune:

Schools ban gay-safe-zone signs

Bowing to pressure from a small but vocal group of parents, Rich Township High School District 227 board members in Olympia Fields voted Monday night to remove multicolored triangles signifying safe zones for gay and lesbian students from more than 100 classroom doors.

The 5-1 vote came after some parents at recent meetings had accused the district of promoting homosexuality and discriminating against students who are not gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender by allowing the triangles.

Kind of like the folks who claim that laws against gay-bashing infringe on their rights.
