You know how the pro-gay marriage crowd gets all up in arms when the pro-traditional marriage crowd points out that legal acceptance of homosexuality and gay marriage will impact everyone, especially kids?

Well, here is yet another example of that.

Despite the fact that Californians voted to legally define marriage as a union between one man and one woman, some local school boards have their own ideas about how to indoctrinate the younger generations about these issues, so that, 20 years from now, they won’t lose a popular vote like they did with Proposition 8.

At least one California school board has decided to implement a curriculum that includes “compulsory lessons about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.”

Starting at age 5.

And parents cannot remove their children from these indoctrinations, I mean, lessons.

According to, “The kindergartners will focus on the harms of teasing, while the fifth graders will study sexual orientation stereotypes.”

But what if a huge majority of parents came together and told the school board they did not want this? They’d have to listen, right?

Um, no.

Because that’s exactly what’s happened. The vast majority of parents who have attended public forums have been against this new curriculum, but the school board doesn’t seem to care. They plan on implementing the new curriculum anyways.

Advocates of the program say that this is necessary to prevent bullying. How about we enable teachers to actually discipline kids so that when kids are mean for any reason, they get in trouble and learn to never do it again (meanwhile setting an example for other kids not to do the same thing)?

Of course, that would work, but then we wouldn’t be able to indoctrinate kids to think that homosexuality is normal and acceptable in the process.

So I guess we know what this is really about.
