Officials from the Cobb County School District are staying mum on the recent controversy caused by one of its employees, Tanya Ditty.
Ditty, the state head of Concerned Women for America, spoke before a subcommittee of the Ga. House Judiciary Committee on House Bill 630 (State Fair Employment Practices Act) earlier this week and made national headlines when she compared gays and lesbians to pedophiles, necrophiliacs and zoophiliacs. Ditty almost instantly became the new poster-child of anti-gay bigotry. You can see Ms. Ditty's testimony, as well as a thoughtful and humorous response from State Rep. Karla Drenner (D-Avondale Estates), here.
HB 630 (State Fair Employment Practices Act) would prohibit the state from firing its workers over their sexual orientation or perceived sexual orientation.
