Utah School fires language blogger, believing “homophones” = “Gay Agenda”

( This is from the CBC )( <— and that’s  link to CBC.ca/news )

Timothy Torkildson was recently ‘let go’ from his position as a social media  specialist at the Nomen Global Language Center in Provo, Utah after writing an educational blog post called “Help with Homophones”. (( Homophones, in case you forgot your grammar, are words that sound alike but mean different things, like flew and flu, red and read, see and sea, mail and male… )) He was fired by a school administrator for allegedly promoting “some kind of gay agenda”. }

So, do you think that things like this might be the reason that most Canadians I know have the cautious view that most people in the ‘lower 48’ have the: “I have my mind made up, don’t try to confuse me with facts!” attitude?
