Why at any age, should tax funded schools, be opining and teaching about any social issue? There is bound to be bias one way or another.
You're right. Leave the kids alone.
So schools shouldn't teach about equality, diversity, or respecting others at all?

I do too. AT HOME. It's not the school's place. "Ask your parents" has never gone out of style.
And when has a prayer at school ever killed a student? It's not a big deal, but you want to make it one.
Start looking at the bigger picture and the true problems of the world and this country.
No one is stopping children from praying in school.

Should we also teach them that heterosexuals cheat on their spouses? Should we teach them about heterosexuals and STDs since they aren't immune? Should we show them pictures of heterosexuals with herpes, syphilis, AIDS, etc. since they contract all of those diseases? Should we show them pictures of infants who contracted STDs from their mothers during the birth process? Should we teach them that the BSA is a pedophilia organization that covers up the molestation of boys by their staff and volunteers? Should we teach them that Christian ministers frequent prostitutes and engage in illegal drug use? Should we teach them that Christian clergy and youth pastors molest children? Should we teach them that Republican politicians hang out in public restrooms looking for sexual encounters from other men? I mean, if we are going to concentrate on the "evils" of society, shouldn't we expose them to the whole "truth"? While we're dwelling on the "evils" of society, shouldn't we teach them that fathers molest their own children?

What the hell equal rights do they not have? I have two gay cousins and a couple friends. They're not bitching.
Like every other minority, they don't want equal rights, they want additional rights.
Anything a gay couple wants is available to them through civil rememdies. If they can find a pastor or priest to marry them......go for it.
Do you think it would be moral for the government to FORCE a clergyman to perform a same sex marriage against his beliefs?
Anymore than to force a doctor to perform an abortion.
Yes, if Romney has a grandchild that is gay, he will love them equally, just like I do my cousins.
It's gotten to the point that people are zealots over this gay rights and other social issues.
It's a distraction to more important issues and we, the majority, are sick of it.
Lord, I hope the debate moderators don't take up time on this BS.
My marriage is treated unequally at both the state & federal level compared to opposite-sex marriages.

That's not equal.

The 1st amendment protects religious freedom; no clergy can be forced to marry ANY couple they don't want to already.

The fact is that what gay advocates are doing has nothing to do with diversity and everything to do with a perverse attempt to gain acceptance by brainwashing straight 5 year old kids from straight families into believing that being gay is just as normal as being straight. Not knowing about gay relationships at that age is no disadvantage at all. If you want 5 year old kids to benefit from homosexuality then teach them about the CDC fact sheets on HIV/AIDS. Teach them about the gay boycotts of Chick-fil-A and JC Penney. Teach them why so many homosexuals are atheists. Show them pictures of people infected with AIDS. That would be giving kids the best education with the most advantages.
Oooooh, they're brainwashing all the kids into thinking gays & lesbians actually exist in society and that EVERYONE should be treated equally.

Sooooooo scary!!!!!

Easy one, leave the kids alone. They will find out about homosexuals soon enough. If they have questions they can bring them to their parents.
When David Parker had problems with gay story books in his Lexington school he just wanted an opt out option for HIS kids. Judge Wolf said that an opt out option would cause an 'exodus' from the public elementary schools on days when homosexual subjects were taught, he went on to say that 'it would send the wrong message' to the one kid in class that had two moms. What message are gays sending the straight families? They are telling the kids that their parents are wrong and their religion is wrong. People have a 1st amendment right to practice their religion without government interference. If schools want to teach homosexuality they can wait until a least middle school and give them the whole story, not just the favorable stuff AND they should offer an opt out.
So what is the teacher supposed to do when the little religious bigot kids are beating up the kid with 2 moms? I guess they should just keep out of it and leave it up to the parents to handle?

Can they beat up the little jewish kid too, or just the kid of the lesbos?

There IS an opt out, it's called private school or homeschooling.

Sure, teach them whatever you want to. Better yet, leave that stuff to the parents so they can be mom and dad. Keep it out of the public schools.

I'm registered as unaffiliated but if you want to talk weird politics let's talk about that democrat, Barney Frank, the one that had a boyfriend running a prostitution thing from his apartment. No one said that we should focus on the evils of society, but if you have to teach someone something you owe the student the whole story.

You don't need gay story books and lies to teach kids to respect each other. Only gays seem to think you do. The teacher should do exactly the same thing as he/she would do if any kid were being beaten, no special attention for homosexuals. BTW, the 'urgent' need for gay subjects in Alameda used bullying as an excuse. It sparked some research, there was no case of gay bullying in elementary schools, not one.

So every time a teacher mentions mom or dad in school they should also have to say sometimes dad beats up mom and the kids, and sometimes mothers drown their own kids, and dads cheat on moms with hookers and bring home stds to mom, etc.

Remember, gotta teach the whole story......

It would go something like this:

Teacher- "Remember to have your parents sign your permission slip for tomorrow's field trip, unless they're too busy beating each other to a pulp, or unless your mom is at the free cliinic getting treated for syphilis that she got from your dad when he visited a hooker in Vegas........"

Yep, gotta teach the WHOLE story........

But what if the parents of those kids taught them to beat up the gay kid or the jewish kid?

You're interfering with a parent's right to raise their children as they see fit.

The teacher should first have to call the parents of all the kids involved and get their permission to stop any fight, otherwise it would violating those parent's rights.

So if Michigan refuses to recognize left-handed people, does that mean I'm not left-handed anymore because I live in Michigan?

Guess I better start practicing writing with my right hand just in case.......

Then they can't teach about heterosexuals either. That means no more mentioning "mom & dad" in school, no more reading any story which mentions heterosexuals in any way shape or form. Can't mention Martha Washington or Mary Lincoln or any other Mrs is history. Can't mention that Teddy Roosevelt was related to FDR because that implies heterosexaul reproduction. Can't teach about women's voting rights, because one of the reasons men opposed it was they felt it would dilute a husband's vote- oops, can't say "husband" or "wife" either. Can't even say "children" because that implies heterosexual reproduction.

Well that's certainly going to cut the curriculum WAY down.......

Many of those children will be gay and should know about the discrimination you are speaking of.

They can be married if that is the way they want to see their relationship until all the states recognize it - and they will.
