Don't even know what to put htere....

I just read this article today. I am angered, disgusted and totally in awe that this would happen. A San Fransisco FIRST GRADE classroom was taken on a field trip. Where were they taken? Why would a field trip be so bad? Because they went to their gay teacher's wedding!!!! Yes. A first grade classroom took a school-sponsored field trip to their gay teachers wedding. The school said that they saw it as a good "teaching moment". I think what floors me most of all is that it was the parent's idea to go in support of their teacher. Only two children's parents wouldn't let their kids go. The other kids were there with Vote No on Prop 8 buttons on their shirts. The children were interviewed of what they thought of the wedding, marriage and love.

Typically kids love their teachers. They want to please them. Kids do their best for them. For the school system to take the same-gender marriage thing this far ( and it will ONLY get worse) is sickening. It only creates confusion on these innocent little children. As the article states, this is complete and deliberate indoctrination of our children. I am glad that I have been exposed to alternate schooling methods from books like Thomas Jefferson Education. I am in no way satisfied with just sticking my kids in a public school because that's the way it's been before. I have NO idea what I / we will do when our kids come along and are at that age but I want to really start researching all of my options now.

Dusty and I were talking over lunch today about this a little bit. We think that sometimes people think that because this time in our history has been prophesied about people think that it's going to come no matter what. It will only come if good people do nothing and stay silent. This issue is not about diversity. It's not about tolerance. Same-gender marriage is a perversion of our human bodies. It goes against the law of nature and fails to continue or sustain human life.

I am sorry about blogging so much about this issue lately. I am sorry it even has to be discussed. Here is the link to that article. I want to hear your thoughts!! I also want to challenge everyone again to support the church financially and with your time to help fight this battle.

Amy, unfortunately this doesn't even surprise me. You've got to read "ACLU VS America" and then you'll see what I mean. Crap like this happens ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. Not just in crazy CA. It's really scary what they can get away with in public schools!!!

Dusty and Amy said...

Yeah, I understand it's not just in CA and it's not new. It just is overwhelming me how quickly it is becoming mainstream and how things are switching into mainstream without relatively too much fuss or action from others. People are tying to pass this off as a politically correct issue etc. and push acceptance and tolerance. I will read what you suggested.

This never really 'hit' me until last week when I was in the grocery store and I saw two kids with their mom and her significant other who was a woman. It suddenly hit me how confusing this situation was for the two kids. What should they grow up thinking? What if they are attracted to members of the opposite sex, do they feel guilty or that something is wrong with them because their mom doesn't? It just made me realize how confusing it is for children to grow up or be introduced to the idea of same gender attraction. It is very sad.

I don't even know what to say about this! I know that things like this go on all over the place, I wish it didn't. Thanks for blogging about this I want to read the article. I would be so mad if I were a parent...my kids would not be going on that field trip!!
