Rios Radio Show: Teaching Kids About Equality Just Like Teaching Them To Use Crack

Sandy Rios
Sandy Rios of the American Family Association has already warned that the equality "freight train" is fast approaching, demanding God-fearing Christians "to bow the knee or to be crushed." More recently, on an episode of her radio show, Rios resorted to another common fear-mongering tactic: claiming that America's children are in danger. 

Rios devoted part of yesterday's show to discuss the National Education Association. More specifically, she wished to decry the NEA's commitment to including LGBT-inclusive curricula. "The NEA has been for the last twenty years indoctrinating our children," she cautioned, and went on to place the blame of our culture's recent "decline" solely on them. "I think that we can lay at the feet of the National Education Association the reason why this culture has been slouching toward Gomorrah."

Rios then brought on a guest, a South Carolina teacher pastor Ira Thomas. Both attended the NEA's recent conference in Atlanta, and were naturally appalled at the "indoctrination" they saw. Thomas was eventually the one to utter the offending quote, saying that "to me it’s like teaching people about how to use crack. It’s a dangerous game to play on."

  2. Two uneducated people having a conversation. It's nice that they have each other to talk to.

  3. You know who I feel sorry for? Her children!
    They talk about how bad it is for The Gays to have kids because, you know, they might get picked on [most likely by hateful Xtian kids] for having gay parents. Imagine what life must be like having Sandy Rios as your mother. Yikes!

  4. I know the type: the especially pretty blond woman with her squeeky-clean, blond vision of a jewless Jesus who loves the children so much that through her he protects them from all knowledge of the complex world out there. Just keep everything pretty like the pretty blond woman.

  5. Just another frigid bi*ch who wants the rest of us to be as miserable as she is.

  6. No. Teaching kids about inequality and hate is like teaching kids to use crack. Ever hear of "Religion is the opiate of the masses"? There is absolutely nothing behind those eyes. Nothing.

  7. This woman said something and the 95% of the rest of the country called back: "Who cares?"

  8. Those poor IMAGINARY children, that are so often discussed and made examples of. They suffer so. They have the weight of the gay world on their IMAGINARY little shoulders.

    Let's think for a moment about ACTUAL children the kind innocent gay children, whose world some people would seek to twist into one of non-equality. Yes, the ones born into a world of hate and vitriol so powerful it can influence them into ending their own lives. It's a sickening tactic to use IMAGINARY children as a weapon against ACTUAL gay children.

    Find a new delusion, we're on to your schemes to discredit the very real gay children. It's absolutely amazing that in 2013 a person can be so willfully ignorant of the real world, and it's ACTUAL gay children. Good luck living in your tiny bubble with the winds of change blowing fast and fierce.

  9. Why give these morons so much free publicity? They are the ones who have relentlessly dumbed down the schools so children won't ask questions about fraudulent religion and larceny in government and financial sectors. Exterminate the vermin with truth.

  10. They must have (intentionally?) removed the remnants of her little brain during one of her obviously frequent plastic surgeries.

  11. Ok so schools are bad for teaching tolerance and understanding, but churches are great for teaching hate and intolerance and the "indoctrinate" children younger than ones allowed to go to school.

  12. Just goes to prove that equality has gone too far when a woman -A WOMAN - is allowed to broadcast without close supervision.

    This situation has been caused by uncontrolled feminism and so called equality. Once women gave up their God decreed job of being mothers and housewives this sort of thing was bound to happen.

    This woman needs to reassess her life and get back to her cooker and let the men handle the difficult stuff like politics.

  13. A woman AND a Hispanic?

    Oh, Rick/Jason/his 42 other alts is going to have a field day with this one!

  14. This is what I find ironic when a self-professed "Christian" woman like Rios uses her religion as an excuse to attack gay people:

    Since Jesus didn't say anything negative about gay people, they look to obscure sections of the Bible to try to find excuses for homophobia.
    They tend to quote Paul (who had persecuted Christians for much of his life!) in the letter he wrote to the Corinthians...and even then, they have to use a re-translated version of the Bible that changes a word to "homosexual" when the word Paul wrote did not mean that.

    But then when Paul says in the same letter than women should just stay quiet and ask a man at home if they want to learn something (an idea also emphasized in Timothy which says that a woman is not to teach a man)? Obviously there, Paul's sex roles that Sandy seems do find of for OTHER people seem to just go out the window.

  16. Edit: "to find of" -->. "To be fond of"

  17. Uneducated parasites

  18. This is what 2-d thinking looks like. It causes less wrinkles, stress and your lips stay full and puffy. Apparently intelligent, 3-d thinking will turn you lesbian--look what happened to that pretty straight girl, Rachel Maddow.

  19. Not to put too fine a point on it, but RIOS isn't a very Waspy name. She'd be told to hold her tongue if it hadn't been for folks fighting for her rights.

    Tell her to sit down and shut up if she can't extend grace to those coming up behind her.

  20. except the exact opposite. crack kills. so does bigotry.

    at no point in history has "homosexuality" destroyed a family or caused someone to take their own life.

    that's what anti-gay bigotry does. duh.

  21. I teach kids that sodomy is dangerous, disordered, and sinful.

    There is nothing you can do about it.

  22. Dale, you're right: there's nothing we can do about it. If you're truly for real, though you're probably just a troll, we don't know who you really are. If we did, we'd report your for child abuse. If you're for real, then I look forward to the day the children you educate finally realize you're full of it and cut you out of their lives.

  23. The proper response that the press is waiting for is a gay counter-point group to the FRC. They expect advocates to follow all the correct PR 'protocols' after all, since many of them come from that industry.

  24. Sandy Rios should take a moment from her hopeless quest to be beautiful and read a book. "Dale" should read one, too.
