What’s Brewing: Montana Lance; Troy Aikman; bills targeting gay marriage advance

Montana Lance was bullied because he had a lisp.

1. The parents of a 9-year-old boy who took his own life at school last year have filed a wrongful death suit against the Lewisville (Texas) Independent School District. Montana Lance’s parents claim the district failed to protect him from bullying and harassment. Montana had a learning disability and a lisp, which led to other students harassing him for being “gay,” according to The Dallas Morning News (subscription required). The federal lawsuit was filed on Friday, the one-year anniversary of Montana’s death. Montana (above) was found hanged in the nurse’s bathroom at Stewart’s Creek Elementary School in the Colony. (Watch video below from WFAA-TV.)

2. Former Cowboys QB Troy Aikman, long the subject of gay rumors, has separated from his wife after more than 10 years of marriage. There’s no word on what led to the separation, and we suppose it’s really none of our business, but we can’t help but wonder. Aikman is set to work the Super Bowl on Sunday for Fox.

3. Bills targeting gay marriage advance in Wyoming, Iowa.

KLIF loves homophobic bigots

I don’t know how this audio escaped me until now. KLIF drive-time jock Chris Krok ranted about Joel Burns recruiting kids to the “gay lifestyle” complete with prissy lisp. Apparently, while the rest of the nation was praising the honest open-heartedness of Burns’ confession, Krok felt that since “not one gay kid in Fort Worth” had committed suicide, Burns should not have wasted council time talking about “me, me, me.”

Clearly, Krok hates gay people, hate gay kids especially and doesn’t care how many die or are bullied. KLIF thinks this is appropriate entertainment for its listeners and advertisers. I don’t.

Listen to as much as you can; I found it hard to get past about 40 seconds but made it beyond 5 minutes eventually.
