Latest Jennings horror story involving 15-year-old boy!

MassResistance update: National outrage growing over appointment of homosexual activist Kevin Jennings as "safe schools czar" in US Dept. of Education. MassResistance work being cited. Congress taking notice.

Recently the Americans for Truth website and others publicized an outrageous incident that took place back when Jennings was a teacher at a private school in Massachusetts, which he wrote about in a book. In the book (and in a subsequent taped interview) Jennings describes how he counseled a 15-year-old boy at the school to continue having a sexual relationship with an adult man the boy met in a bus station restroom. Jennings even described how the boy seemed happier the more the man sodomized him. Jennings never reported any of this to authorities, but instead encouraged the boy to "use condoms."

Since this became public, the calls for Jennings to be removed have been growing across the country. And although the mainstream media continues to ignore it, it will not go away. It's reached Fox News, the Washington Times, and conservative web sites and talk radio around the country.

Like the Van Jones incident (the Obama "czar" who was forced to resign after his strong ties to radical communist organizations were exposed), this will be a very hard story to continue to ignore.

Wow...more lies from the "good christians" on the fringe. What a surprise.

Media Matters tells the truth on this one:

For several days now conservatives in the media have been on a witch-hunt for Kevin Jennings, the U.S. Department of Education's director of the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools. Led by Fox News, the right-wing media have claimed that 21 years ago, when Jennings was a 24-year-old teacher at Concord Academy in Massachusetts, he "cover[ed] up statutory rape" by not reporting to authorities a conversation he had with a student who told him about being involved with an "older man."

They have attacked Jennings with homophobic, anti-gay rhetoric, falsely accused him of covering up or encouraging "statutory rape" and asked for his resignation or firing.

Media Matters for America has exclusively obtained the Massachusetts drivers' license of the student confirming that at the time of the incident, he was at least sixteen years of age -- the legal age of consent in Massachusetts.

In addition, Media Matters interviewed the young man who Jennings counseled, Brewster. Brewster, who is now in his mid-30s, said the following:

Since I was of legal consent at the time, the fifteen-minute conversation I had with Mr. Jennings twenty-one years ago is of nobody's concern but his and mine. However, since the Republican noise machine is so concerned about my "well-being" and that of America's students, they'll be relieved to know that I was not "inducted" into homosexuality, assaulted, raped, or sold into sexual slavery.

In 1988, I had taken a bus home for the weekend, and on the return trip met someone who was also gay. The next day, I had a conversation with Mr. Jennings about it. I had no sexual contact with anybody at the time, though I was entirely legally free to do so. I was a sixteen year-old going through something most of us have experienced: adolescence. I find it regrettable that the people who have the compassion and integrity to protect our nation's students are themselves in need of protection from homophobic smear attacks. Were it not for Mr. Jennings' courage and concern for my well-being at that time in my life, I doubt I'd be the proud gay man that I am today.
- Brewster

But keep it up please. I'm sure you'll find something else to fabricate in order to bash the gays and Obama at the same time. How noble.

John,
According to Mr. Jennings' own description in a new audiotape discovered by Fox News, the 15-year-old boy met the "older man" in a "bus station bathroom" and was taken to the older man's home that night. When some details about the case became public, Mr. Jennings threatened to sue another teacher who called his failure to report the statutory rape "unethical." Mr. Jennings' defenders asserted that there was no evidence that he was aware the student had sex with the older man.

However, the new audiotape contradicts this claim. In 2000, Mr. Jennings gave a talk to the Iowa chapter of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, an advocacy group that promotes homosexuality in schools. On the tape, Mr. Jennings recollected that he told the student to make sure "to use a condom" when he was with the older man. That he actively encouraged the relationship is reinforced by Mr. Jennings' own description in his 1994 book, "One Teacher in 10." In that account, the teacher boasts how he allayed the student's concerns about the relationship to such a degree that the 15-year-old "left my office with a smile on his face that I would see every time I saw him on the campus for the next two years, until he graduated."

Mr. Jennings' denials about these events reveal a lack of remorse. He has not admitted that he made mistakes in this case, and he now refuses to answer any questions about the scandal. Don't forget, this is a presidential appointee we're talking about. Mr. Obama should make clear what his standards are for public servants serving at the pleasure of the president. Encouraging and covering up man-boy sexual activity are serious offenses. The White House should force Mr. Jennings to come clean.

Mr. Jennings has made extremely radical statements promoting homosexuality in schools and about his utter contempt for religion that render him unsuitable for a prestigious White House appointment. His job in the Obama administration is to ensure student safety, and this scandal directly calls into question his ability to perform that job. Mr. Jennings and Obama administration officials refuse to answer any questions about this newly discovered evidence. A lot of Americans want answers about this guy and how he was approved for a job in the White House.

But your right John, man-boy relationships are not wrong if you say so, or even if the boy doesn't. I guess you see nothing wrong with adult incestuous relationships as well?

John said...

No, I have a problem with the outright lies pushed by the fringe element on the so-called "religious right" to discredit anyone gay, or even different, in order to malign President Obama. Fortunately, the lies are becoming transparent enough that most people are able to see through them. But please continue....the Republicans don't have too much further to go until they reach rock bottom. .

Perhaps you didn't read the statement from the boy himself...

"In 1988, I had taken a bus home for the weekend, and on the return trip met someone who was also gay. The next day, I had a conversation with Mr. Jennings about it. I had no sexual contact with anybody at the time, though I was entirely legally free to do so. I was a sixteen year-old going through something most of us have experienced: adolescence. I find it regrettable that the people who have the compassion and integrity to protect our nation's students are themselves in need of protection from homophobic smear attacks. Were it not for Mr. Jennings' courage and concern for my well-being at that time in my life, I doubt I'd be the proud gay man that I am today."

No, much easier to believe the right-wing propaganda machine isn't it.

John - write this down.

A man’s seed in another man is death, but a man’s seed in a woman (even if it is sin) carries the possibility of life. Attempting to equalize the two is the highest offense to the nature of God who is and gives life.

Men sodomizing young boys is always wrong, even if the "boy" consents, even if man's law says it is legal, and even if... Tell me John, where do you get your morality from?

John said...

The point is, the boy was of the age of consent. Meaning he was free to make his choice...and the loons on the right continue to lie about it. Isn't lying immoral too, or is that OK with you so-called "christians" when it serves your needs?

I neither condemn nor endorse his personal decision. Nor do I care what your book of christian mythology has to say about it.

I see, you only condemn those whom you disagree with, and then call them liars (how non-judgemental of you!). I love irony, don't you?

PS I think it is wrong that you will neither condemn nor endorse slavery.
