    "Good"? Not any more so than any other relationship between consenting adults. "Nothing wrong with them"? Yes, there is nothing wrong with them. Schools should and usually do teach tolerance and respect for others regardless of their beliefs.

    So I guess schools should also teach tolerance of polygamy or incest?

    back in the 50's government took tax payer money and used it to make anti-homosexual films to be shown in public schools........was it right to do that ...no.

    the government is not supposed to take people's money and use it against them.

    There are roughly 35 million Canadians so 2.8 million is not a extremely tiny %
    Im not sure how many are in the Unitarian Universalist General Assembly but if it is anything like the ratio in Canada it would be roughly 10X the number so 28 million and that is just for the USA. Add all the others in and we are not talking about an extremely tiny fringe no matter how much you want it to be.

    That's a bit of a broad statement. The government is perfectly entitled to use your tax money to imprison you if you murder somebody.

    So as I said, it is an extremely tiny fringe.

    really .....so your going to have the school teach things to my child things which I object to on a religious level.

    so if the schools were to teach homosexuality is wrong, and use tax money to do it your ok with that to?

    you would have committed a crime to go to prison.

    can the government take your money from you and use it against you if you have broken no law?..
