Utah Man Fired for Blogging About Homophones

Does anyone else find it interesting that he was fired from a language center?

via Newsweek:

A Utah teacher and education blogger says he was fired from the Nomen Global Language Center in Provo after writing a blog post about homophones, though he disputes media reports that he was let go for promoting a “gay agenda.”

Self-described “social media specialist and content provider” Tim Torkildson recounted the firing in a personal blog post, which was subsequently picked up by The Salt Lake Tribune and other outlets.

In a video posted to the band’s Facebook page, Backlin has said that the song isn’t “singling out homosexuals” and that the song is against all “sin.” He also said that he loves everyone and has no hate in his heart. Here’s the video with lyrics. Following the jump you can watch Backlin’s explanation. See what you think.

Bow. Wow.

Via On Top Magazine:

Ana Maria Jimenez Ortiz, a local deputy of the PAN Party in Puebla, said during a forum on whether to legalize gay marriage in the state of Puebla that “marriage should only be considered as those relationships in which the members have sex while facing each other.”

Jimenez Ortiz said that this “does not occur between gay couples,” Mexican media reported. She added that blind people are also in that category, but it was unclear whether she was talking about legally blind people or those who prefer to have sex with the lights off.

She said that this was based on the scientific method, asserting that only eye contract at time of copulation creates a true union.

“Who pretends to love decently using the favorite position of dogs!” she said.
