Gross. Sounds like public schools in the southern US, or fundie or rcc schools throughout the US.

Should the christian teachers also resign because muslims don't like christians either?

If it were reversed ... gay parents complaining about a muslim teacher ... oh, the outrage would go viral!
For you imbeciles in Texas, that is called sarcasm.
Gay people are the new whipping boys for the world's bigots. They always need someone to hate. Who's next? The gay thing is starting to get old.

While I have always questioned some of the superlatives Americans heap upon their own country, America *does* seem to be a very NOTICED country. What America does is widely noticed, that I believe.

So the pro-gay strides in America are being seen worldwide. They're also reflected in England's recent history.(I'm not saying we're responsible for them in England.) I think things like the subject of this article are a backlash; I keep coming back, again and again, to believing that. The antigay, mistakenly believing that others are attempting to "force" them to "change their morals," are "fighting back" in increasingly bizarre and petty ways.

What makes this sound so antigay is that it continues the antigay obsession with linking orientation to children.

I wonder if it's intentional that the article provides a very, very subtle reminder -- a whisper of a reminder, nothing more -- of the idea that if these parents want nothing known about sexual orientation and gay people, then logic dictates that others can demand *nothing* about muslim practices or religion govern society.

It is, in fact, pure logic: If one set of beliefs is not taught, others can demand that others not be taught or known.

And what if the child IS gay? Stoning ? Murder ? Ostracism ? I mean, with parents like that who needs enemies ?!

Wow You sure know your stuff. I can tell you have experienced the many pleasures of the flesh. But you should lay off the "kiddos" and stick with men only.

Very good points ... and that's why I said 'the world's bigots.' America and England are gay heaven compared to some other places. But we also enjoy the opportunity to voice our opinions more than most. That helps greatly.
Interesting there is no outrage against Muslims influencing children. Just goes to show how religion in general is the root of 90% of the world's problems.

"Moffat said that he did come out after a group of 11-year-olds at a school assembly held up a "Gay is Good" poster. "

If that doesn't prove that kids are being indoctrinated and recruited by the Gay Agenda I don't know what does. Absolutely sickening.

The usual nonsense .. The only gay experience I had as a child was with a relative .. and I went after him, not the other way around .. I knew what I liked even at that tender age .. A clear case of sexual precocity with no tiresome inhibitions ..

Cletus, the 11 year olds held up the sign. Then the teacher came out, "after" the kids held the sign up.

Hard to know who is "recruiting" whom in this case, well, for a fundie cretin it is difficult.
