But this week, the organization dove back into the culture wars, declaring that anti-bullying programs presented by outfits like the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) are too pro-gay. And that's not the only problem Focus education rep Candi Cushman has with them. She also thinks they're anti-Christian.
