Until now, I was totally unaware that a gay film festival could destroy society as we know it. That’s the disturbing revelation of an information systems professor at the University of Wisconsin.
It seems that when a student asked him for help in publicizing the University of Wisconsin’s first-ever gay film festival, Dr. Tom Hilton replied,
“I urge you to reconsider your plan. Homosexual behavior damages its participants, their loved ones, and the communities that sanction it,”
Dr. Hilton, who is a local bishop with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, told the school’s newspaper that “I decry attempts to legitimize their addictions and compulsions.”
