You'd fit in there, for a while anyway.

Your trollig around this forum calling every conservative a "bigot" has about as much credibility as everything else you post, which is to say...none.

You'll get over that DOMA decision in a few years. Maybe doing some volunteer work at a soup kitchen would help.

I'm well aware that every conservative is not a bigot.

You fit the bill.

Prove your assertion.

An American holding the opinion that same-sex relationships are not the equivalent of marriage does not meet the standard.

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 If a parent wants to be informed of what is being taught in a classroom and wants to have their child withdrawn from the classroom for that portion of the class dealing with human sexuality, that parent has the right."
Having re-read this, in this particular case, if that statute is indeed in force, enacted via proper use of due process as it applies to the implementation of such statutes, it would seem that there is not a "rights" problem, but an enforcement problem (the school is not doing what it is legally required to do). In that case, I would support the Parkers. Not for what is being taught, but for the school violating the statute. Sorry for my previous response, I am guilty of not reading your entire post.

Seems he did it to himself. There are proper channels to use to get the school to follow the law. Trespassing is not one of them.

Many parents get touchy when adults are abusing their kids.

Public school servants get no special pass to abuse children, although they believe that they do in Hillary Clinton's world of it takes a village to raise a child.

If public schools would stick to teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic, there would be no problem. Judging by results, public schools fail teaching the 3R's but succeed in teaching political correctness.

Public schools reinforce that oral and anal sodomy are sex acts, and that elective abortion is legitimate birth control.

You're welcome to believe it and live under the rules of your religion.

You don't get to make other people live under the rules of your religion. Your god doesn't like same sex sexual contact? Good news: you're free not to take part in same sex sexual contact.

Religion in the US is opt in. Which is really pretty incredible and wonderful.

"It takes a village to raise a child" is an old African proverb that was brought to the American public consciousness when it was quoted by then First Lady Barbara Bush.

When you consider who her children are, and their history as young men, you can understand why she would make such a statement.

Same-sex practitioners choose to reject marriage, which is the union of one man and one woman.

If they believe their rights have been violated, then it is by their own hand.

Not according to 13 states, DC, and the federal government.

We had no states allowing gay marriage, then one did, then two did, then three did, then four did, then five did, then six did, etc. It's not hard to figure out which way the winds of change are blowing.

Nope.

This book is Hillary's classic -- not so much a political book as a definition of her view of the world. It was written in 1996, well before she was considering running for the presidency. Hence it does not have much in the way of policy prescriptions. However, Hillary added an introduction in December 2006, for the "10th Anniversary Edition," along with a new set of end-notes commenting on her updated thoughts on the original text. Those 2006 additions were written with her presidential run in mind, and constitute the bulk of our excerpts.(The 2006 additions are cited as roman-numeral pages for the introduction, and page numbers above 299 for the end-notes).

The theme of Hillary's book (and its title) is that children are raised not just by their parents, but also by all of the other people in the society around them. Therefore, according to Hillary, all the components of that society -- the schools and the government, but the businesses too -- have an obligation to consider their impact on children that they affect. Apparently Hillary's belief in this philosophy has been strengthened in the past 10 years, because her new commentary reinforces her original policy prescriptions with a decade of additional evidence.

People who promote elective abortion and sodomy as virtuous are very poor candidates for an institution that is based on the raising of children, not adult hedonism.

Religion has little to do with this fact.
