Gay Fairy Tale (With Kissing) Read To Class of Seven-Year-Olds By Ace
THE crown prince rejects a bevy of beautiful princesses, rebuffing each suitor until falling in love with a prince. The two marry, sealing the union with a kiss, and live happily ever after.
That fairy tale about gay marriage has sparked a civil rights debate in Massachusetts, the only US state where gays and lesbians can legally wed, after a teacher read the story to a classroom of seven year olds without warning parents first.
A parents’ rights group said overnight it may sue the public school in the affluent suburb of Lexington, about 19 km west of Boston, where a teacher used the book King & King in a lesson about different types of weddings.
“It’s just so heinous and objectionable that they would do this,” said Brian Camenker, president of the Parents Rights Coalition, a conservative Massachusetts-based advocacy group.
Mr Camenker said he believes the school, Joseph Estabrook Elementary, broke a 1996 Massachusetts law requiring schools to notify parents of sex-education lessons. “There is no question in my mind that the law is being abused here,” he said.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if in the next couple of weeks there was some kind of (legal) action taken,” he said.
Lexington Superintendent of Schools Paul Ash said the school was under no legal obligation to inform parents the book would be read to the classroom of about 20 children.
“This district is committed to teaching children about the world they live in. Seven-year-olds see gay people. They see them in the schools. They see them with their kids,” he said.
“I see this as a civil rights issue. People who are gay have a right to be treated equally,” he said.
“If it were North Carolina, this would be a whole different story. But the law in Massachusetts is that gay marriage is legal. We have lots of gay families in Lexington.”
Note that pro-gay-marriage advocates like Andrew Sullivan sorta forgot to mention this “side benefit” of gay marriage– that the acceptance of gay marriage would be the pretext for drafting children into the next battlefront in the gay culture wars.
I “get” that gays have an interest in living their lives as free from hatred as possible. But I am tired of the left’s insistence that every other value is subordinate to this one, including allowing children some precious few years of sexual innocence and allowing parents to decide upon his child’s sexual education.
The insistence on bringing children into this is just plain creepy. Not just the gay left, but the broader heterosexual sexual/cultural left. They have an idea of what they think human sexuality ought to be and, if it’s too late to change the minds of teenagers and young adults, well then, they’ll just have to get to them earlier, won’t they?
And it’s colossally selfish. Your right to extend your fist ends at the tip of my nose, the saying goes. Surely your right to indoctrinate society per your sexual preferences ends at the tip of other people’s children’s noses…
But for the gay/sexual-cultural left, even children’s innocence must now be sacrificed at the altar of gay marriage.
