    I see no reason nor intimidation, pressure to change my sexual orientation to homosexual. Nor do I see it for anyone else what ever their sexual orientation is.

    well, i'd say that there is at least as much evidence for that as there was for the earlier claim that this law would effectively murder homosexual students.

    No, elementary schools should not teach tolerance. They should have strict rules that are strictly enforced.

    Elementary aged children do not need to be taught why the rules are there, they just need to know what the rules are and what the consequences are for breaking them.

    So that is not a way of teaching?

    It was intended as a spoof. The homophobe and hateful gets tossed around everytime someone disagree with a homosexual want.

    I think Godwin's law applies here and you lose the debate hazlnut. Hyperbolic accusations of homophobia, in an attempt to silence and/or marginalize those with whom you disagree, is akin to calling them a nazi or a commie or a homo etc.

    You lose.

    If you read it real slow and sound out the words, it should make sense. You may not agree with it but it isn't a confusing statement.

    Oh, feel free to explain why you think I’m wrong when you’re done.
