If you don't like what is taught in public schools, then send your little bigot to a private school, or better yet homeschool them.
A better choice is to put a stop to it. It's happening, parents are speaking up, tossing out offending school committee members. No need to employ a private school when you can change the school you're already paying for.

You're right, but when you say it, it sounds nefarious. If you really want any say as to how your local schools are run, you run to run them.

Keep in mind that public schools are there to serve ALL of the public, not just your particular subgroup. If you want your children to have an education that is structured around a particular religious opinion then you need to send your kids to a religious private school. You don't get to impose your particular religious opinion on the rest of the public school community even if you get elected.

As a Canadian, you don't really deserve a response, but.....
They don't teach religion in public schools. Why is it that anyone opposed to brainwashing children has to be religious?

Perhaps because 99% of the time people who gripe about the inclusion of actual sex education in schools are self-proclaimed Christians who feel it is their duty to force their particular religious opinions on everyone.

P.S. I may be a Canadian, but I'm currently in the USA. And my kids are going to US schools.

I told you that was an option a LONG TIME AGO, but you kept claiming the liberals in Massachusetts wouldn't allow it to happen.

So now you have nothing to bitch about anymore.

But I'm sure you'll keep bitching anyways and pretending to be a victim of some great "gay agenda".

It's completely in line with your total obsession with all things gay......

They USED to teach religion in public schools; christmas & easter programs were mandatory; prayer was mandatory.

Thankfully we finally got the SCOTUS to rule that unconstitutional.

If the religious freaks have their way, they'd be back to forcing religion on all students against their will. And I'm sure you'd be standing with them.

Not one person in my family ever had a class on religion in a public school. When public schools had anything to do with Easter it was in elementary school and involved eggs and a bunny, not religion. Same thing for Christmas. Some Christmas plays may have involved religion but weren't mandatory and no one had to go to see the play.

Teaching religion would make more sense than teaching gay relationships if only because there are far more people with ties to religion than there are with homosexuality. Why send a straight kid home to his straight family with a gay story book like "King & King?" Makes no sense.

There are still public schools in the USA right now where they don't understand what "separation of church and state" means and have school-led prayer. Here's an example where a public high school is refusing to stop the school-led prayer even though the school superintendant has told them they can't continue to do so due to separation of church and state.

By your logic, schools should only expose students to books that portray white Christian heterosexuals where there are stereotypical male-female roles.

Kids who get that sort of censored view of society will grow up at a severe disadvantage because there is a lot of diversity in human society. And I vote for giving kids the best education with the most advantages.
