I got some time now so I figure I would go through and look at the lies, the undocumented claims and the distortions in your source.
First, the book: Who's in a Family? - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaBy the following year it was in elementary school curricula. Kindergartners were given picture books telling them that same-sex couples are just another kind of family, like their own parents. In 2005, when David Parker of Lexington, MA – a parent of a kindergartner – strongly insisted on being notified when teachers were discussing homosexuality or transgenderism with his son, the school had him arrested and put in jail overnight.
The David Parkjer who was arrested? The charge was trespassing after he refused to leave school grounds. His words: "Our parental requests for our own child were flat-out denied with no effort at accommodation. In our meeting on April 27, I, insisted that such accommodation be made and refused to leave the meeting room. I was informed that I would be arrested."
The book: King & King - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaSecond graders at the same school were read a book, “King and King”, about two men who have a romance and marry each other, with a picture of them kissing. When parents Rob and Robin Wirthlin complained, they were told that the school had no obligation to notify them or allow them to opt-out their child.
From the appeal when the couple lost the first court case: "There is no evidence of systemic indoctrination. There is no allegation that [the second-grader] was asked to affirm gay marriage. Requiring a student to read a particular book is generally not coercive of free exercise rights"
Ruling: http://www.massresistance.org/docs/p...iss_022307.pdfIn 2006 the Parkers and Wirthlins filed a federal Civil Rights lawsuit to force the schools to notify parents and allow them to opt-out their elementary-school children when homosexual-related subjects were taught. The federal judges dismissed the case. The judges ruled that because same-sex marriage is legal in Massachusetts, the school actually had a duty to normalize homosexual relationships to children, and that schools have no obligation to notify parents or let them opt-out their children! Acceptance of homosexuality had become a matter of good citizenship!<-----force being applied!
"In Brown, the First Circuit held that the
constitutional right of parents to raise their children does not
include the right to restrict what a public school may teach their
children and that teachings which contradict a parent's religious
beliefs do not violate their First Amendment right"
And the court found that this case was indistinguishable from Brown.
Actually what it ruled(same source) was that Mass. law banned discrimination based on orientation and and the curriculum has to encourage respect for all individuals regardless of, among other things, orientation. Basically, the case had zero legal basis under Mass. law.Think about that: Because same-sex marriage is “legal”, a federal judge has ruled that the schools now have a duty to portray homosexual relationships as normal to children, despite what parents think or believe!
I can find something happened, but not evidence of what exactly.In 2006, in the elementary school where my daughter went to Kindergarten, the parents of a third-grader were forced to take their child out of school because a man undergoing a sex-change operation and cross-dressing was being brought into class to teach the children that there are now “different kinds of families.” School officials told the mother that her complaints to the principal were considered “inappropriate behavior.”
The book: About the Book | Courting EqualityLibraries have also radically changed. School libraries across the state, from elementary school to high school, now have shelves of books to normalize homosexual behavior and the lifestyle in the minds of kids, some of them quite explicit and even pornographic. Parents complaints are ignored or met with hostility.
Over the past year, homosexual groups have been using taxpayer money to distribute a large, slick hardcover book celebrating homosexual marriage titled “Courting Equality” into every school library in the state.
Yup, that's right, it is a book yelling about the events leading up to SSM legalization in Mass. How dare libraries carry it...
So in other words SSM married teachers are treated like every one else, as the law requires...It’s become commonplace in Massachusetts schools for teachers to prominently display photos of their same-sex “spouses” and occasionally bring them to school functions. Both high schools in my own town now have principals who are “married” to their same-sex partners, whom they bring to school and introduce to the students.
Not surprisingly there is no source for this claim and only two places mention it from a google search, the massresistance nutjob site source and WND from 2004. I can't prove it does not happen, but I can't find evidence it does.“Gay days” in schools are considered necessary to fight “intolerance” which may exist against same-sex relationships. Hundreds of high schools and even middle schools across the state now hold “gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender appreciation days”. They “celebrate” homosexual marriage and move forward to other behaviors such as cross-dressing and transsexuality. In my own town, a school committee member recently announced that combating “homophobia” is now a top priority.
So your source has proven to be one big pile of stinking ****. Every claim I looked at was either unsourced, misleading or wrong.Once homosexuality has been normalized, all boundaries will come down. The schools are already moving on to normalizing transgenderism (including cross-dressing and sex changes). The state-funded Commission on Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth includes leaders who are transsexuals.
