After two musical groups disparaged gays at an Iowa school assembly, the district's superintendent told students that such messages had no place in his schools.

The Thursday performance by Junkyard Prophet and a group called You Can Run But You Cannot Hide ended with the musicians reportedly spouting antigay rhetoric. Later in the day, Dunkerton Community School superintendent Jim Stanton "prompted a contrary message of tolerance," according to Iowa's KCCI. He told students the performance was a mistake and "didn't conform to the district's teaching of tolerance." Read more here.

You Can Run But You Cannot Hide is a Minnesota-based group that is associated with antigay congresswoman Michele Bachmann.
