Petition Targets Anoka-Hennepin Bullying Committee’s Hate Group Representative

A new 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.
