Ok so you gave your honest assessment, that's all I ask. We just disagree. PeaceYes absolutely I would advocate for kids if they were Christan and that caused this kind of issue. Of course I would I am Christian myself. If parents tried to shame children fir being Christian I think a program in schools should exist to tell them that it is perfectly okay to be Christian. If Christian kids went through the same things, buddhist kids, handicapped kids, i don't care the aspect that is the focal point of this kind of chastising, the result would be very similar. If the tables were turned and straight kids or religious kids were this beaten down my opinions would not change, kids still need support that may come from a teacher telling them that its okay that there its nothing wrong with them, or other school children supporting them. Children need that no matter if they are gay, crippled, different, religious, non religious, or what ever they are.
I agree parents should be in control of education. But sometimes they suck at it, that is okay we have schools filled with professionals that can teach what parents can't.
All teachers are doing is saying that it is okay that they are gay. I dint see any indoctrination happening there, they aren't programming children to be gay, you can't, it doesn't work that way. If you think it does just go try sleeping with your gender a couple of times, of you like it than i guess you can be turned gay, if the very thought disgusts you them you have proven that people can't be talked into it.
Nothing is going to happen to straight children except they won't think gay people are perverted and mentally messed up.. Now if you want them to think that, that is a problem. We don't live in a nation that is tolerant of that. If you don't want your kids to be gay,.i understand that, but you dint really have any say in that, you can't, unless we understand how homosexuality manifests itself there is no way you can possibly hope to prevent it.
What do you hope to accomplish by continuing the wall of silence to these kids that desperately need anything but silence? Are you just uncomfortable with homosexuality (nit that there is anything wrong with being uncomfortable with it) do you think that they will turn your kids gay? of you find homosexuality immoral, than teach your kids that it is immoral, be careful though if you have a gay kid that might damage them.
I just don't understand what is so wrong about it that all conversation must cease, even at the peril of children who are homosexuals. It isn't your personal morality, because we talk about eating pigs in classes with no consideration of Muslim and Jewish kids, we say that it is okay to consume bacon but.
So your bidirectional statement in that regard is not the same. What is the difference between telling a class made up of kids that some may be Muslim, Jewish, or vegetarian that its okay to eat pork. And telling a class that may have straight kids in it that its okay to be gay.
I Am even okay with teachers explaining that some religions are against homosexuality and that that is okay, those people will simply not practice it. Just like when I was in grade school and teachers taught me why Jews and muslims don't eat pork, they were a different religion and that is okay. Its immoral for Christians not to believe that Jesus is the Messiah but its okay to learn about Jewish and Muslim people, so what us the difference?
So just because someone elses actions are immoral in you're religion didn't mean that your kids need to be sequestered from learning about it. Try your bidirectional arguments on yourself. What if we said the same thing about being Muslim that we say about being gay. its far more immoral in the Christian faith to follow a non Christian prophet and not accept Jesus as Lord than being gay. But its okay to say its okay to be Muslim or Jewish. Same thing with being gay. I don't see a difference.
