Teaching Same-Sex Marriage in Schools – Will it happen?

This article from Fox News gives some updated information on the pledge cards that kindergartners were asked to sign as part of Faith Ringgold School’s celebration of National Ally Week. The cards asked students to promise, “not use anti-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) language or slurs; intervene, when I feel I can, in situations where others are using anti-LGBT language or harassing other students and actively support safer schools efforts.” This activity was one of many that happened as a celebration of Gay and Lesbian History month. Students also had a “Coming Out Day” and later will participate in a “Trans-Action Gender-Bender Read Aloud”. See the original article here:School Holds Surprise Gay Day

Are these appropriate activities for elementary school students? Of course not. So, why did they happen? In my opinion, this has a direct relation to the California Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage. The ruling sent a message to school districts, although implicit, that same-sex marriage is now equal to traditional marriage in California. As we have seen here and at Creative Arts Charter School in San Francisco (First Graders Attend Lesbian Wedding), some of California’s more liberal educators are jumping at the chance to teach students about homosexuality. In the name of tolerance, they are biasing young minds into believing that homosexuality is normal and should be accepted as such. Therefore, gay marriage must be normal as well.

Why hasn’t this happened in more schools? I believe most school leaders are wiser than these, so they are waiting for the results of Tuesday’s election. If Proposition 8 fails, then school leaders that already want to teach same-sex issues in elementary schools will go ahead. When confronted by disgruntled parents, they have only to say that it is California law, so why not teach it?

Please, consider the consequences of approving same-sex marriage in California. It hasn’t happened yet, but as an educator, I tell you, it’s only a matter of time. The curriculum has already been created by groups like the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network and New Day Films Many teachers already feel that this is an important topic for youngsters, comparing it to the civil rights movement of the sixties. What’s left? Only for Proposition 8 to fail. Please vote Yes on Proposition 8. Let’s keep discussions of sexual preference out of elementary schools.

    The idea that our public school administrators are unbiased observers in this election is a farce.

    TODAY in our town, a prop 8 sign that was too close to school property was destroyed by two Conejo Valley Unified administrators. It was caught on camera.

    There’s no way they can say that they are unbiased in this debate. The ferocity and cruelty shows through. This is who runs our schools. This is the face of tolerance.

    let’s be honest about those commercials here. When were you ever taught about marriage in school? Those commercials are targeted towards public schools which have sex ed but… there’s no such thing as “marriage ed.” Those commercials are ridiculous. And has anyone else besides me noticed that: 1. they used the same book as the prop in all the commercials 2. The commercials are all set in Massachusetts. …think about it.

    Now that propositon has passed, we need to keep the momentum going. Let us not allow that our children be taught that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality.
    Stop the “gay agenda” from propagating any further.
