Funny!

"...yes, we should protect children from being taught in the schools, as early as age 7, that homosexuality is a normal human behavior and that if they think they like girls more, then they may be a lesbian, or if they think they like boys more, then they may be gay. At age 7, some kids probably like their dogs more than their classmates....should bestiality be offered as a self-identification possibility as well?"
Well said. And I can guarantee you that age 7, girls like girls way more than boys and visa versa. Girls rule.....boys drool. Keep the schools out of it and don't force anything, that is not for their own safety, on any child until they ask.

LOL I swear that will never get old. When my husband calls to say he's on his way home, particularly if it's early, he says "so tell the milkman to leave." Yuck yuck.

Exactly how many years has it been since they made home deliveries? Well, they never did out here...but still.

I checked over the weekend and I am registered. But I have to go back and do it right because I did not know my password and my zip wouldn't take. I'll get to it. Thanks for the heads up.

I have three cousins and several friends who are gay. And, of course, I love them, two more than the other to be honest. The one I do not like is in a 'normal' hetrosexual marriage, with children, and thinks he's in the closet. Ha.
I prefer the the family, as a whole, introduce the kids to that situation and explain it without bias or romanticize it. Why confuse them when they are too young?
Yes, the church is going to become involved at some point, but not early in the child's life.
As ar as I'm concerned, the school's and government need to stay out of it.
Paents know their kids best and there is no sense in piling all this knowledge on them when they have not asked or been exposed to it.
When they are, yes, you explain different kinds of families and don't make a big deal about it.
It's been my experience with kids that sometimes to much information leads to experimentation.

prevented Christmas play about Charlie Brown, done by a church group, to be held in the auditorium of a nearby public school because it had a Christmas tree and some carols in it. Now that's really teaching acceptance and tolerance, isn't it?
Can't speak to the specific situation there, but the Charlie Brown Christmas story on TV is a bit more than a tree and some carols. Perhaps you have forgotten the message at the end about the true meaning of Christmas. It is both Biblical and beautiful.

Let me ask--why do you find it appropriate for a church group to deliver a religious message to a school group? Is there some congruence with curricular aims for the grade level?

Prohibiting the free exercise of does not guarantee a public platform (the public schools) for either worship or proselytizing. Something that they should have taught you at Colby.

You should also be aware that there have been multiple court decisions defining differences between the public school and the public square, particularly when it comes to the free exercise of religion or speech.

One of the most recent--you should look it up--went by the name of "Bongs for Jesus." You should check into it.

You are ultimately responsible for your child's education (you are the one who can be arrested for not sending them to school or home-schooling them). If you allow your child to be exposed to anything you don't like, that's YOUR negligence. Teach them at home.

I see so many people who really, shouldn't have had children and do poorly by them.

It warms my heart, in this small way to see that some people who should not be able to pass on their ignorance and small mindedness have indeed been prevented from doing so.

Should we reach a time where people make the deliberate choice to have children, based on their honest ability to raise sensitive, curious and caring humans things will be looking cheery indeed.

If, conversely, that your cancer is what has rendered you such a small, cold and unknowing person, I am indeed sorry for your, and the world's loss.
