Teaching kids that some kids have two Moms or two dads is not debatable, it's a simple fact of life. Teaching older kids that some people are attracted only to the same gender is certainly not debatable.<quoted text>
is that a rational distinction for why religion is not to be taught but orientation is?
so again, all that you wrote is applicable to orientation (but the choice which is DEBATABLE)
most religious people think they were born that way as well...
And, if you believe that one can choose to completely extinguish the orientation they came into this world with, and utterly replace it with the attraction to another gender, and do this feat of magic at the ripe old ages of 12-15. then you need to explain the mechanisms that cause this.
Even in kids who have NEVER met a gay person, or read a story about same gender parents.
As to religion, if you teach religion in public schools, which one would it be? I suspect that the children of Catholics would be a bit peeved if their children learned to be wiccans, muslims, or even Baptists at their public school.
And I suspect that most protestants would be just as peeved if their children learned to be Catholic and hold reverence for the Pope.
Am I wrong?
