“Gay Issues” Curriculum for Kindergarteners?

Elementary School Teachers Join Day Without A Gay

You may have heard that this Wednesday, many gays and their supporters are calling in sick to show how much they will be missed as an integral part of the work force. Sounds peaceful enough, and if that’s how they want to raise awareness, I say that’s much better than vandalizing churches, harassing Prop 8 donors, or calling me a racist bigot. But, did you hear what some Philadelphia elementary school teachers are going to do during their day off? Read this excerpt from the Boston Herald:

Scott Craig, a fifth-grade teacher at Independence Charter School in Philadelphia, had no problem requesting and being granted the day off. So many of the school’s 60 teachers were eager to show support for gay rights they had to make sure enough stayed behind to staff classrooms.

About 25 teachers plan to take Wednesday off and to have their work covered by substitutes while they discuss ways to INTRODUCE GAY ISSUES to their students and volunteer at the local branch of the American Civil Liberties Union, Craig said. A letter telling parents why so many teachers would be out went home Monday.

Does anyone still believe that gay marriage will not be taught to kindergartners? It’s only a matter of time. . .

    Of course these teachers would want to volunteer for the ACLU. So they can hang out all day with people telling them how cool it is that they ditched work for such a great cause..yada yada yada! Unbelievable.

    I hope the papers report afterward on their new curriculum that they plan to discuss on Wednesday. What I don’t get it how the state, well CA anyway, is so strict about what teachers have to teach in regards to math, reading and writing standards, but it sounds like these teachers plan to go off willy-nilly with their gay-sex-ed plan…They need to be reigned in somehow! Yeah for bloggers like us!

    Keep the pressure on. We can’t have people going around promoting homosexual acts as though they were natural.

    Wake up everyone, male and female compliment each other. Life was designed that way. Heterosexual activity has the potential to bring about new life. Homosexual acts just bring about disease, health problems and disorder in a person life.

    Why is everything so hard for some people like you to understand? Gay marriage is not a threat to heterosexual marriage- having gay marriage won’t do any harm to you or to your spouses or won’t prevent anyone who wants to marry.

    It is an option for people who want to choose it. If your religion does not approve of it then fine, don’t recognize it. But there is such a thing as separation of Church and state and simply preventing lots of decent and honorable people access to the most basic of HUMAN rights is absolutely disgusting.

    My god does not not discriminate. It seems like yours does. And I bet he’s so glad you’re taking a lot of time contributing to making the world a HATEFUL place.

    Lesfriendly,

    Nice omission there buddy, “gay marriage is not a threat to heterosexual marriage.” While I could argue the relative merits of that statement, I’d like to address the statement hanging off the end of that claim, begging to be addressed out loud. Namely the fact that legalizing gay marriage will most definitely have a negative impact on our society by way of childrens’ education (already seeing this), religious freedom (already seeing this), and freedom of speech (already seeing this).

    Marriage is not a basic human right, but it sure lends sob story status to your tale when you slather on the victim role that way. Marriage is not anyone’s right. Instead, it is an institution for the betterment of society through the raising up of strong, moral children. Sure, it includes love and hopefully commitment, but it is not born of those things. Its purpose is to foster procreation and ensure the most perfect, well-rounded environment for the ensuing offspring. What IS your right is to disagree with me. And what IS my right is to do all in my power to protect that sacred institution and, consequently, protect children.

    Our God certainly does discriminate. He does not withhold love from any of His children, but neither will He look upon sin with the least degree of allowance. Our God helps people overcome their sins, not grasp at pathetic attempts to feel justified to live in them.

    Lastly, being an advocate for children is certainly not “making the world a HATEFUL place.”

    In regards to Day without a Gay –
    Nobody missed them…mainly because they couldn’t get the rest of their own community behind the effort!
    Is it rude to laugh?
