Rhetorical question of the day: Would this school have required a signed permission slip if the speaker had been Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden?

From PolicyMic:

The former U.S. senator and controversial 2012 presidential hopeful was slated to speak about leadership in front of an assembly of students at Grosse Pointe South High School on April 24.

However, on Monday, parents received a mass email from school principal Dr. Matt Outlaw saying that the speech was called off. Speculation ensued from Santorum himself, proposing that the speech was cancelled due to his stance on gay marriage at a time when equal rights is fervent in the public lexicon.

After some community outrage and compromise with the YAF, school officials reversed their decision, opening the doors for Santorum to speak. Students can only enter, however, if they have a signed permission slip.

In many states this is more parental permission than is required for a minor to get an abortion.

The school’s superintendent claimed part of the concern was that Santorum had never addressed high school before. Somebody can’t or won’t perform a simple internet search, because there is much evidence to the contrary.

Heaven forbid students hear some points of view that aren’t on the official education association list of acceptable opinions.
