Pundit Bill O'Reilly has spouted off following the news that a suburban Illinois lesbian couple won the 'Cutest Couple' category in their high school's senior yearbook poll.
Waukegan High School recently awarded seniors Brandy Johnson and Lupe Silva the title of 'Cutest Couple' for the school yearbook, which comes out May 2008. On Nov. 7, during Fox's The O'Reilly Factor, the host criticized the school's students, accusing them of voting for the lesbian couple in order to 'cause trouble.' O'Reilly told his guest, Northwestern University Assistant Professor Dr. Laura Berman, that it was an attempt to 'normalize homosexuality in public way in an academic setting, high school, among minors.'
The school poll has stirred up some controversy. According to the Sun-Times, the 'Cutest Couple' page will be replaced by a 'cute couple' page that will feature Silva and Johnson, along with several heterosexual couples that were runner-ups in the poll.
