A new Change.org petition is taking aim at Anoka-Hennepin School District for appointing a member of the Parents Action League, a designated anti-gay “hate group,” to its new anti-bullying task force. School Board Chair Tom Heidemann defended the appointment of Bryan Lindquist because he has shown that he is “concerned about bullying harassment of students.” But Lindquist is rabidly anti-gay, and has been outspokenly so even since joining the committee, citing the fraudulent Regnerus study to claim gay parents are pedophiles. Given Anoka-Hennepin only now has a bullying task force as a consequence of its notorious history of disenfranchising LGBT students, Lindquist’s views will only prevent progress toward a safer learning environment.
