How would a teacher "refuse to promote marriage"?

Would that mean that it was okay to speak out against it? Remaining silent on the subject? Pretend it doesn't exist?

I wonder how that would work the first time some kid comes to school and talks about going to their uncle's wedding to his partner.

Teachers (good ones anyway) would refuse to promote HOMO-marriage to children.

A good teacher would explain that is not a real marriage but a mockery of marriage.

A good human being would not have to keep switching usernames and posting obsessively over something he seems so attracted to exploring.

"Teachers (good ones anyway)" aren't in the business of "promoting" ANYTHING except good study practices.

Teaching tolerance of others is just teaching "Citizenship".
