SAVE statement on anti-LGBT comments by Rep. Van Zant

Florida State Representative Charles Van Zant's comments characterizing new standardized testing in public schools as a scheme to "attract...children to become as homosexual as they possibly can" are ignorant at best and hateful at worst.

Such an important policy like the plan to update Florida's standardized testing program should be debated on its merits -- and using the LGBT community to distract from the real issues will certainly fail.

While SAVE does not plan to take a position on the policy in question, we will hold Rep. Van Zant accountable for his anti-equality stance and his blatant targeting of the LGBT community.
