"Whether You Like it Or Not"

 

Vallejo parents who were upset at their children being exposed to indoctrination suggesting that all family forms are just the same were ignored by the school board, who ruled their children will be exposed without notification, without right to object.

    Here we see in action the homosexual activist's ideas of "equality". This is the sort of society which they hope to bring about. They hope to bring about a society where a small elite group will dictate to parents what their children will be exposed to. This fits perfectly with the goals of the communists who, not surprisingly, back their agenda.

    "The bourgeois clap-trap about the family and education, about the hallowed co-relation of parents and child, becomes all the more disgusting, the more, by the action of Modern Industry..."

    That is taken ver batim from the communist bible, "The Manifesto of the Communist Party".

    One has to ask why the communists would be backing the homosexual activists. The communists would not be backing the homosexual activist agenda unless it was furthering the communist agenda!

    There goes religious freedom. They said this would not happen, well it has, the homosexual agenda is being forced down the throats of Christians.

    No, Paul, they are not forcing it down our throats. They are TRYING to force it down our throats. The battle is engaged and, as the great Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over 'til it's over!" ;-)

    Our anti-bullying program is just that: an anti-bullying program, not a sex-ed program. I can't believe that any school system can enforce such a mandatory provision. Will the school be paying for the AIDS treatments of those kids who opt for a homosexual lifestyle as a result of this propaganda? Will the school be responsible for the psychiatrist bills, the suicides, the anal cancer treatments and other health care costs associated with this lifestyle programmed into the minds of confused adolescents?

    Although we're happy with our public school system, we are careful to teach our kids at an early age that the teachers are not always looking out for what's best for them; that the teachers work for us; that the teachers are not their parents; that the schools are sometimes forced by the government beyond our control to teach things that are wrong, immoral, or against our religion.

    On sexual matters, we view all materials beforehand and to date we have not had to pull them out of class (but we do have the option, fortunately). Our kids know the scoop on traditional family primarily from our example at home, but we teach them that other people have messed-up lives, messed-up parents, and as a result end up in messed-up situations where boys decide to like boys and girls decide to like girls. We tell them that we feel sorry for these kids, and that we should never tease anyone about that or anything else because it makes them feel worse than they already do. Their lives are sad and confused, and that's why it's important for moms and dads to stay together and teach and protect their children, so they know what's right and wrong, what's good for them, what's bad for them.

    Although we can protect our own, we must fight to protect others and our society from chaos and a lack of moral understanding. We need strong legislatures and strong executives to assure that the courts don't get packed with liberal activists who will protect such attacks on our children, our religions, and our society.

    More "family units" besides the ones these parents espouse have children attending schools. It's not fair for these families to be thought of as inferior. It's certainly not fair to the children of these families.

    Funny how your intolerance of 'other' makes ya'll so bitter and oh so hypocritical I should allow YOU to indoctrinate my children in hate ...

    Fundamentalists putting the mental back in to the public eye.

    In what possible way is it immoral to teach students what bullying is and is not? In what possible way is it immoral for schools to be welcoming to all families?

    "Families," another word co-opted by liberal advocates pushing the homosexual agenda. Where once a procreational link was the basis for family, now anybody who develops a close friendship is deemed to be family. More semantics games to break up what we now have to refer to as a "traditional" family. I prefer the term "real family" or just "family."

    Right a.mc, that's why we can't have "superior" or "inferior" kids anymore -- so we graduate kids that cannot read or work long division. Everyone gets a trophy in sports nowadays, and we're even supposed to treat 2 men playing house as if they were husband and wife???

    @e.mcewen -

    No one is calling kids "inferior" for being brought up in households of different sorts. If the household doesn't have a mom and dad, it is inferior to those that do. The kids know this; kids know that they are created by a mom and dad; they want to know those people, want to be with them, want to be raised by them. We all want that, and we're saddened when we don't have that. It's why marriage is so important: to encourage families to stay together, for kids to know and be raised by their parents.

    We have to accept the fact that not all situations are equal; we strive for an ideal and make the best of what we can when things don't work out. But we don't compromise the ideal and create a false equality just to make people feel all warm and fuzzy. It only encourages the degeneration of the ideal, encourages inferior household environments, puts more kids in poverty, weakens society, and the kids are still disappointed.

    Jill, if you want to teach children that bullying is not ok, teach kindness, not lesbianism.

    Who has the say on what children are exposed to, parents or the state?

    When will ssm activists be satisfied?
    They all say their choices don't affect everyone else, but we are seeing forced acceptance like this more and more.
    At the end of the day, how great can ssm activists feel knowing a good deal of folks accepting them are folks that were forced to do so? Minds are not changing, just the methods of force.

    Parents who disagree with non-discrimination policies in the school system should take their kids out of public school. The right to discriminate is available to anyone, just not at the government's expense. Why not home-school? Then you can teach your kids exactly who isn't as good, or who is inferior, or who your god teaches you to hate. Gay families exist, whether you like it or not. And many of them have kids who attend public school. Should you want your kids to go to a school where they are told every day they are not as good as everyone else because they're christian? What if the majority of kids at the school were Muslim? Would they have the right to tell the christian kids they're going to hell unless they convert? Would you want your kids being called names because they were members of a different race, or religion, or because of some physical handicap?
    Why is it so hard for conservative christians to understand that there's no good reason to bully kids, even if you think your bible says you should do so. Your bible is wrong, if you think that giving equal respect to all your neighbors is wrong when it comes to the gay ones. And don't give me that tripe about "love the sinner, hate the sin". I hear no love from anyone who opposes non-discrimination policy. I hear anger, and a lot of lying and disinformation about LGBT citizens. Liars for Jesus.

    I hope one or multiple parents that is againts this will file a lawsuit againts the school. I know if my child attended that school. I would be filing a lawsuit as they have no reason to be teaching this to my child.

    @Paul -

    I'm going to borrow TC Matthews' comment infra: If you want to teach kids that bullying is not ok, teach kindness, not homosexuality.

    And I'll go one further: Teaching them homosexuality will only increase the chances that they will become homosexuals themselves, becoming part of a minority that no matter how much we strive to prevent from being looked at differently, will always be looked at differently. This is child abuse.
