Lawmakers Cut School Funds Over Gay-Themed Books

South Carolina lawmakers voted to cut $70,000 in funding from two public colleges that assigned books about same-sex relationships, The State reports.

Said state Rep. Gary Smith (R): "One of the things I learned over the years is that if you want to make a point, you have to make it hurt. I understand academic freedom, but this is not academic freedom... This was about promoting one side with no academic debate involved."
