Students and parents alike were shocked when a homosexual-themed play was staged for students at Hartford Public High School in Connecticut -- and kids weren't given the option ahead of time not to watch it, WORLD News Service reports. The play, performed by a local community theater group and starring local high school and college students, was set in an alternate universe where everyone is gay except for a few closet heterosexuals. It featured songs with raunchy lyrics, and two boys shared a kiss onstage, which prompted several students to get up and leave. Peter Wolfgang, director of the Family Institute of Connecticut, is pushing for the state to require parents to give explicit permission -- known as an "opt-in" law -- for their children to attend such events in the future.
