Jack Wu, the Westboro Baptist Church member running for the Kansas Board of Education, says that one of the nation’s leading anti-abortion governors is not anti-abortion enough.
Wu said that he wants more law classes in the schools and that the lack of such classes has led students astray.
Students “are engaging in bad behavior like drugs, alcohol, violence and fornication,” he said. “They can abstain from these behaviors.”
Tough punishments for prostitutes, a crackdown on shootings near schools and stricter punishments for murderers are also on Wu’s agenda.
He agreed with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s crackdown on soda and sugary snacks in the schools but for different reasons. While both have said they want to promote healthy eating, Wu tied his call to his religious beliefs.
“We should offer students snacks with natural sugar, not snacks with sugar added,” Wu said. “That is what God has given us.”
