League protests student gay-rights policy
The Catholic League has voiced strong opposition to a new Massachusetts Board of Education policy which asks school districts to train teachers in homosexual issues and to set up support groups for gay and homosexual students. Massachusetts Chapter executive director Joe Doyle called the move “a taxpayer-funded assault on traditional values.”
“We are witnessing another sordid attempt to use public education to promote the homosexual agenda and validate homosexual behavior,” Doyle said.
Doyle’s comments were reported in a front-page story in the Boston Herald, and he was quoted in stories carried by WCUB-TV, WL VI-TV , and WRKO Radio. He was interviewed on WTAG radio, WEZE radio, the USA Radio Network, UPI, The Worcester Telegram, and the Boston Globe.
