Guess those days are gone.

"The Washington Times reports that U.S. Department of Agriculture officials are moving to push their gay-sensitivity training program — which equates believing marriage to only be between one man and one woman with sexism or racism — into the training of all federal employees, according to an internal newsletter."

"If accepted by President Obama’s Office of Personnel Management (OPM), sensitivity training with rhetoric condemning those who believe in “Heterosexism” will be the norm for all federal agency training programs including those in the Department of Defense and Pentagon."

Well maybe they run into that stuff when they are at the packing houses inspecting sides of beef.
Or do they not do that anymore ?

Apparently not that kind of "meat" anymore.

Uhm it's still a place of employment. I don't see this as being any different from a private corporation doing sensitivity training.

Remember when NASA's priority was space exploration and not Muslim outreach?

"Bolden created a firestorm after telling Al Jazeera last month that President Obama told him before he took the job that he wanted him to do three things: inspire children to learn math and science, expand international relationships and "perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering."

What's funny is that even if the USDA was solely concerned with agriculture, the OP would probably be upset at that. After all, it's just another useless government program, right?

Yes. I remember when that sorry story first appeared. Is there anything this administration does not want to destroy? Is there any way we can speed through to 2012???
