'Rent,' Rowlett and 'lifestyles'

Posted on 04 Dec 2008 at 9:48am

Here’s a link to a video report on MyFoxDFW (Fox 4 News in Dallas) about some Rowlett High School parents, and at least one preacher, who are protesting plans by the RHS drama students to stage a cleaned-up version of the award-winning musical “Rent.”

Even though the production has been in the works — and been public knowledge — since before the school year started, certain parents have just now decided to raise a ruckus that the students are staging a play that actually talks about — gasp! — homosexuality and AIDS and drug use!

It aggravates me so much that I can’t even talk about it without getting pissed off, so I am just going to include the link here. But let me warn you in advance, they do use the dreaded “lifestyle” argument.
