Two state-funded South Carolina universities are being required to teach about the United States founding documents in retaliation for the fact that the colleges spent funds on LGBT-themed reading materials.
University of South Carolina Upstate
The South Carolina legislature appears to be dropping the proposed budget cuts intended to punish the University of South Carolina Upstate and the College of Charleston for assigning LGBT-themed reading materials.
"It's just not normal and then you glorify, or it seems to me, that the promotion at USC Upstate is a glorification of same-sex orientation. That's not an explanation of 'I was born this way.' That's recruiting," said South Carolina state Senator Mike Fair (R), commenting on a segment of University of South Carolina Upstate's upcoming LGBT symposium. The one-woman show, satirically titled "How to Become a Lesbian in 10 days or Less," has been cancelled.
South Carolina legislators cut funding to two colleges because the professors assigned LGBT-themed litaratre to freshmen to read. Despite attempts, the cuts have not been restored.
