Which is why your real goal is full social acceptance...not simply "equal rights". And hey...if that means using the public schools to indoctrinate other people's kids against the wishes of their parents so be it.

Its nice to cut through the crap every now and then and just put the truth out there...huh?
Your prejudice has no valid place in the law.

You are still free to teach your destructive, irrational prejudice at home. You just shouldn't expect the schools to do it for you. Teaching tolerance for those who are different from you is a lesson that will help children get along with their peers as well as transition into adults who will be interacting with others from different backgrounds. They don't have to like others, but it will be in their own interest if they can get along with others.

So why do you come here defaming gays and lesbians Brian? That isn't very nice.
Here is just one example of defamation in addition to his continual insistence that we don't deserve equality, and equality will cause harm:

Any legitimately Christian Church wouln't permit such an issue to hinge on it because it would already know what the right decision is my son.

Ever heard of the Franklin Scandal?

http://franklinscandal.com/

Hill eventually told me that he hadn’t been molested by anyone connected to Larry King, but by a Boys Town priest named Father James Kelly. He was familiar with many of the names on the “Leads List,” and put me in touch with a former roommate who had been a “mayor” of Boys Town.(The student body formerly elected a fellow student to serve as the mayor of Boys Town, which is an incorporated city with its own police force.)

“Yeah, he…, yeah,” confessed Fred Carter, Hill’s former roommate. when asked about being molested by Father Kelly while at Boys Town. Carter also confirmed King's pandering of Boy's Town children, "There were a certain kids there that were, that had that look, that had that marketability.… I knew certain kids that were into, you know because they were young, and… it was just all about money.”

Hill next introduced me to Tony Harris, another former Boys Town student on the “Leads List.” Harris lives in Kansas City, Missouri, and he greets us at the door of the two-story brick home rented by his girlfriend. Tall and svelte, at 40 he retains the physique of his youth, when he was a star running back for the football team and sprinter for the track team in the Boys Town Class of ‘81. Harris, in a white T-shirt and blue jeans, has the looks and build of a top-notch male model. Hill and Harris hug, joke, and reminisce as we walk into the living room and sit down. They banter for five minutes or so before turning their attention to me, producing an uneasy silence. After I explain my motives to Harris, he consents to be interviewed. Hill excuses himself to play games on Harris’ computer.

so if I find a story of a gay man molesting kids, I can apply that to all gays?
you guys should really think about how close your behavior is to those you claim to hate...

Brian lied outright. So did you in this post.

You have no personal integrity either.
