Proposition 8: What Should We Teach Little Children?

This YouTube video includes a pledge card signed by a kindergartener at the request of his teacher in the Hayward Unified School District.



Let's be clear: There is absolutely nothing wrong with teaching young children to be tolerant and to protect those who might be vulnerable to bullying. In fact, there's everything right with that. But early childhood indoctrination and conditioning about sensitive matters that should be taught at home? That's something else altogether.

This little video highlights several questions:

1. Can there be any doubt that the public schools are already teaching kindergartners about gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues? That is clearly what is going in the Hayward district, with the assistance of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, whose name appears on the pledge card the little boy signed.

2. Is there any doubt that such education is taking place without parental consent, as is authorized by Education Code Section 51933, discussed in my post below?

3. Does anyone doubt that if "marriage" is redefined as including same-sex unions, schools will, in accordance with that same statute, also teach the very youngest children that same-sex marriage is equal to a marriage between a man and a woman?

4. Does anyone doubt that parents will have nothing to say about that, and that the organizations pushing for such education want it that way?

Vote "Yes" on Proposition 8. You'll help preserve parental rights regarding the education of their children, and you'll put some brakes on the efforts of overzealous gay rights activists.

Granted, I'm no neutral observer, but it'd seem that your posts are trending "increasingly unhinged" ...

Whatever happens, this contest is not worth either of us losing our health or minds over.

Ah, Jason's rapier-like wit makes yet another appearance. Except it's not as funny when all you're really doing is changing the subject. Don't you hate it when people notice that?

Latest surveys showing Prop 8 running evenly split.

Those of us California Saints ask for all Christians around the world to pray for our behalf and to stop the onslaught of the gay rights agenda.

Now that's funny, Lowell.

Someone from the Yes on 8 side accusing me of "changing the subject" ... ha!

"Changing the subject" has always been the only way the Yes on 8 campaign could ever hope to win this thing, and it's all you've been doing since Day One.

I live in Texas but am following the Prop 8 issue closely. What happens here most likely will affect every state. PLEASE vote "yes" on Prop 8. I'm cheering for you "yes" voters. Bikermom
