"In a long line of cases, we have held that, in addition to the specific freedoms protected by the Bill of Rights, the 'liberty' specially protected by the Due Process Clause includes the right ... to direct the education and upbringing of one's children" (citing Meyer and Pierce).
And you indeed have that right, either by yourself, a private school, or by electing like-minded people to the school board. Of course, if those like minded people don't win the elections, you'll no doubt claim your right is being violated by "the mob".

To 6-year olds? R-i-i-i-g-h-t.
So...you have finally revealed that you believe anyone who opposes same-sex relationships is a "bully" and/or "control freak."
No, only those who attempt to force that opposition onto others.
Wow, Tony.
The bullies and control freaks are not allowing opt-outs for these "informational sessions."
Geez.
Your failure to use your options is no one else's fault.

You just cited three seminal Supreme Court cases specifically for the purpose of supporting your position on the legality of gay marriage.

I'm asking you a direct question.

Why can't you tell us how those cases support your position?

Even Gov. Mitt Romney supported the Parkers' parental rights:

"We have in Massachusetts a parental notification statute specifically in matters related to human sexuality. If a parent wants to be informed of what is being taught in a classroom and wants to have their child withdrawn from the classroom for that portion of the class dealing with human sexuality, that parent has the right."

And the "tolerant" reaction of the pro-LGBTQIABCDEF crowd lived up to its usual expectations:

"Lexington Police were forced to protect David Parker, fearing for his personal safety, when hundreds of angry pro-gay activists, including Lexington public officials and local liberal clergy, gathered to counter-demonstrate against parents and supporters of David Parker who were holding a rally on historic Lexington Battle Green.

Lexington boasts that it is among the most "tolerant" and "welcoming" towns in Massachusetts, but a wave of intolerance and hostility met a group of parents who had peacefully assembled to air a grievance.

The parents had secured a permit and had come together to express their outrage over the continuation of a no-trespass order by the Town of Lexington against David Parker, banning the parent of a 6-year-old from all school property. Parker made national news when Lexington school officials refused his request to notify him when adults were discussing homosexuality or transgenderism with his son in kindergarten...."

Forced acceptance is not acceptance, Tony.
And please...remind me who the "bullies" and "control freaks" are.

That would be Tippy's inherent fundamental right as a Christian Bible Thumper to dictate the legal constrictions on the personal relationships and sex lives of others.
Its right there in the Constitution....errrrr, I mean the Bible.

Do you think you have a right to sit in your child's school past closing time simply because you disagree with the school's curriculum?

You're doubling down on ignorance, dude.
The ongoing discourse was between Tony and me.
You interrupted, as if you were following along.
Obviously, you weren't.
And still aren't.

And again...you strike out.

The discussion is not related to Mr. Parker's arrest for trespassing at his son's school...a charge which was later withdrawn, I believe.

I await your next ignorant, irrelevant comment.

You raised Mr. Parker's situation as an example of alleged state interference with a parent's right to control the education of his or her children.

Mr. Parker forced his own arrest. You conveniently left that out.
