Boner Candidate #1: I CAN TELL IF YOU ARE POSSESSED BY THE PRONOUNS YOU USE

Christian minister and failed Republican politician E.W. Jackson made a stunningly stupid claim on his radio show this week, saying those who use the gender nonconforming “they/them” pronouns are doing so because they are possessed by multiple demons. “This whole thing of going to a plural pronoun,” Jackson said, “to me, it is a subconscious spiritual admission of demon possession by multiple demons.” “The only single individual I’m familiar with who spoke from the plural pronoun was Legion,” he added, referencing the Biblical story where Jesus cast demons out of the man. “Think about that: You’re not to be referred to by the single ‘he’ or ‘she’ but the plural pronoun ‘they.’ Who is the ‘they’ in there?

He also criticized aides given to teachers to help them better understand and serve their transgender and gender nonconforming students.

Sen. Howard Stephenson, R-Draper, said too many teachers are unwilling to abandon their traditional lesson plans in favor of computer-enhanced teaching. He then evoked a biblical reference, wondering aloud what it might take for Utah to see widespread implementation of school technology. “Are we going to have to wait like Moses did,” Stephenson said, “wandering 40 years in the wilderness for the old ones to die off before we can really embrace this with fidelity?”
