LOL.
Define a "gay class".
Were students taught that they needed to be gay? That they had to be gay?
I've already done that for you. Do you have dementia?

If you want your kids to read gay books and learn about homosexuality you can do it at home or start your own private school. Straight families don't care and have no need to know. That kind of information has no use or benefit to anyone. Those promoting these types of special classes may have the false impression that it will further their cause but, in this case, where there is an action there will be an equal and opposite reaction.

But you fail to address that the sham or fraud marriages include two people who obviously wanted to marry, because they, in fact, did marry...
now what was missing from their marriage to make it fraudulent or a "sham"?
I would love an actual response to this question...
That's because no one cares about "sham marriages" unless they happen in an immigration or military setting. Those situations can get the government involved, since they are about getting around certain laws.
Then, the term fraud comes into play, and the government can get a bit testy.

For the rest of the population, no one comes into your home or bedroom and tries to determine your motive for marrying anyone. People may marry who they choose, as they chose, for what reasons they choose, as long as no laws a broken.

Well, of course, unless they are gay, then it's a bit more difficult.

Gee, what's " wnd.com ?" An unbiased news source? Ha! No wonder you're so screwed up.

No matter how many times you try this, the onus is on YOU to put your kids in a private school if you don't like what they are teaching in public schools. The public has decided that gay people are OK. And kids can't get through elementary school ignoring their existence. It's going to come up, and it must be properly addressed. We insist.

Too bad for you.

No, Dear, but unlike yourself, I do have a life, and don't read every post from every poster.

However, the term "gay class" is very open to interpretation, since no classes have a sexual orientation to start with. Perhaps you should be a little more precise in your posts.

Again, a bit more precision would help here. It's a little difficult to understand what you mean, since you obviously know same sex marriage isn't going away.

Are you saying "duh" because you can't think of anything to post at the moment? Or because you didn't understand the question?

Or because you were too tired to post anything relevant?

No, Wondering. It is your burden to prove that it is relevant. Is same sex marriage legal in Illinois?

Do try to stay on topic.

No, it's not your job. You just think who the hell you are. You're a busybody.

Try and change it all you want, you can't.

It's private school for you. Pay up!

A bit more brain on your side would help. I'm talking about the gay agenda in public elementary schools, not gay marriage. When schools use gay marriage as an excuse to teach this stuff to kids then I'm against gay marriage. If you think it will help, write that down so when the urge to ask me again comes up you can just read your note.

Yes, you are, which proves that you are not on topic, and that you are a moron.

Do you know how to stop a troll, Wondering? In your case, the answer is stop posting.
