Back to School: Parents Take Notice

There are 8 comments on the Illinoisreview story from Aug 25, 2007, titled Back to School: Parents Take Notice. In it, Illinoisreview reports that:

“Club SODA (Sexual Orientation Diversity Awareness), Unitown, and SAGA (Straight and Gay Alliance) mask the subversive goals of gay and straight alliances (GSAs). GLSEN also pressures schools to observe various "days of action”

Your local public schools are supposed to be places where young minds are taught the basics -- reading, writing, and arithmetic. via Illinoisreview

lol! you are kidding, right? "liberal social engineering agendas, designed to desensitize our children to the truths found in traditional values?" give me a break...the ILLinois Review is nothing more than a conservative propaganda spewing hate rag.

I nearly spit coffee all over my monitor upon reading "references to masturbation, unsuitable for thirteen and fourteen year olds..."

Hey honey, I'm willing to bet your thirteen and fourteen year olds are quite familiar with masturbation by now. Given all the practice they've had, after all.

This really just strikes me as yet another ignorant, overprotective parent. There comes a time when you need to back off and let your kid make their own decisions.

Okay, I admit it. I do listen to people who advocate banning books. Nine times out of ten, the books are really worthwhile reading, so I make up lists of what to read next from them.

I am totally against censorship and banning gay clubs at school. They get to have Christian clubs, why not gay clubs?

Hey Jethro-liar: There went the social studies, home economics, model UN, art, music, sports, civic studies, driver's ed, substance abuse curricula.

You're a bigot trying to make some crazy argument in a way that attempts to disguise what a common bigot you are. The courts are clear: The exact same legislation which permitted bible study clubs in public schools permits gay/str8 alliances. The fundies knew this at the time the legislation was passed, and at the time thought the (perceived) benefits outweighed the (perceived) drawbacks.

In plain english, tough sht for you, you talibangelical cretin.
