FRC Stands With 53 House Members; Calls on President to Remove Kevin Jennings

/PRNewswire/ -- Today, Family Research Council praised fifty-three House Republicans for calling on President Obama to fire Kevin Jennings, a homosexual activist who heads the Education Department's Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools.

On multiple occasions, Kevin Jennings has proudly boasted of an incident (when he was a teacher) in which upon learning that a young boy in his class was having sex with a much older man, he did nothing to discourage him and failed to report it to the authorities. The only advice this future "Safe Schools" czar gave the young boy was "be sure to bring a condom."

Early this summer, in response to this revelation and several other serious concerns about Mr. Jennings' record, FRC launched and a media campaign that has generated tens of thousands of emails and phone calls demanding his resignation.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins made the following comments:

"We applaud these fifty-three House members for seeking to uphold basic ethical standards within the Department of Education. We urge President Obama to heed the growing calls from Congress and the American people that he immediately remove Kevin Jennings as 'safe schools' czar. No Administration official is more deserving of removal than Kevin Jennings.

"Kevin Jennings has shown a disregard for parental rights and for our children's well being. The record shows that Kevin Jennings has neither the temperament nor the ethical standards needed for public service.

"Kevin Jennings continues to decline to answer the many questions about his radical record. He has also failed to acknowledge that:

* Children should not be having sex with anyone;
* An adult having sex with a 15-year-old is a crime;

* Crimes of child sexual abuse and statutory rape should be investigated and punished;

* No one of any age should seek sex partners in a bus station restroom; and

* Using a condom is not sufficient "protection" for a child being sexually abused by an


* On his past illegal drug use, he should make it clear that he regrets his youth drug use and affirm that no one should ever use illegal drugs - including marijuana.
