Christian Father Sues to Keep Kids From Learning About Sex and Sexuality but He's Not a Bigot

There are 320 comments on the www.womanist-musings.com story from Sep 10, 2012, titled Christian Father Sues to Keep Kids From Learning About Sex and Sexuality but He's Not a Bigot. In it, www.womanist-musings.com reports that:

Steve Tourloukis, a parent whose kids attend school in the Hamilton-Wentworth area, has asked to be given advanced notice when the teacher plans to teach sex education, so that he may remove his children in order not to conflict with the Greek Orthodox Christian teachings in the home. When the request was denied, he decided to sue.

Okay, I understand that Dr. Tourloukis has religious beliefs; however, schools are public institutions funded by public dollars. I highly suspect that his issue has a lot to do with schools teaching about same sex families and homosexuality. If he really didn't have a problem with the LGBT community, he wouldn't have an issue with his children learning that members of the GLBT community deserve equal treatment in society and should not exist with a stigmatized identity. As it is, the information given in school does not even approach the necessary level to teach children about heterosexism, cissexsm, homophobia and transphobia.

How ironic you would speal of logical fallacies. We can start with the error of insufficient options with your claim that people who make comments in a gay forum somehow must be gay themselves.

Ah, the oldest trick in the book. You edit my post in such a way that you vainly attempt to pull it out of its proper context. Your attempt at an insult went over like a lead balloon. Better luck next time...you'll need it.

Yet when a poster repeatedly refers to the antigay as "snot", you commend him for his "clarity of thought".

I know I'm going out on a limb risking being called a "bigot" for saying this, but I realy wish all the queers would stop hanging around the bus stops and the play grounds.

The adverbs and adjective are less operant than the logic of his nouns and verbs, snotty.

They say that great minds think alike, but you have successfully proved that this also holds true for juvenile bigots, showing us what flaming hemorrhoids of wasted humanity they want to be if they ever grow up. How sad. Now show everyone how much my b*tch you are by replying.

I, too, often see the antigay as puppets who can't resist responding -- as if on strings -- and *committing more deliberate lies and slander* to public history online.

That was ignorant, pointless and had nothing to do with the subject of this thread. It would make sense to say it was the statement of a bigot, it met all the criteria.

And that appalling lack of education and awareness leads DIRECTLY to Democrats and liberalism which is EXACTLY what's destroying America. Teh Obamaniac has cut our military to the bone ! If we were bulding thousands of now tanks, and thousnads of new planes and thousands of new ships, and thousands of new submarines, we wouldn't have the Obamaniac rececession and a record high unemployment rate ! TRILLIONS FOR DEFENSE BUT NOT ONE CENT FOR THE OBAMANIAC !
He is Evil. PURE EVIL.
Aside from the appalling spelling, in itself an example of extreme ignorance, this is one of the most ridiculously ignorant statements posted on this or any thread. I don't suppose the author of this babble has ever considered where the money for all these weapons would be coming from? Whenever someone starts in with this mindless diatribe spouting words like liberal and Democrat,(or from the opposite camp, neo con and Republican), you know the person voicing it has ceased to think long ago and is following the dictations of their fanaticism.

The multiple icons attached to the most recent posts here are the obvious work of a single poster and amount to propaganda and have no relationship to reality.
