Northampton, Massachusetts-AP -- A different sort of educational experience for a group of fourth- through sixth-graders in Northampton, Massachusetts.
The students from the Solomon Schechter Day School went to Town Hall today to witness the first day of legal gay and lesbian marriages in Massachusetts.
The students have been studying the civil rights movement. One of their teachers said today's proceedings offered a chance to see a bit of history in the making.
Among those applying for their marriage licenses were several sets of parents from the school.
The kids cheered as couples emerged from City Hall with their documents in hand.
Mission accomplished. Indoctrination complete.
(These kids now firmly believe that the naked emperor is wearing a fine set of clothes.)
This is absolutely appalling.
I use to pretty much overlook this lifestyle but now I am starting to wish a lot of ill will to these people as I am getting sick of this minority winning rights over the will of the majority. Something needs to be done about these judges that make policy also. Any ideas?
Where are the parents of these kids? They should be suing the daylights out of the school board for thrusting the secular humanism religion down the poor kids throats. Makes me want to hurl!!
Here's a more honest Jewish take on things:
Part of being human is being subject to desires, and that includes desires for behaviors deemed improper by the Torah. One example that has always existed is the desire, at least for some people, to engage in homosexual behavior. But no predisposition or desire, no matter how strong, is beyond the most powerful and most meaningful force in the universe: human free will. We are not mere animals, responding to whatever urges overtake us. We are choosers. And at every moment of our lives, can choose right or choose wrong. If we subscribe to the belief that we are here not to "be what we are" but rather to "be what we can," we must endeavor to choose right.
One of humanity's saving graces over history, the Talmud teaches, has been its refusal to legitimate male homosexual relationships. It is distressing that much of American society and popular culture seems to be abandoning respect for fundamental aspects of the Torah's sexual behavior code intended for all of mankind. We Jews, though, must not allow ourselves to be pulled aboard the cultural bandwagon.
We must instead remind ourselves that, no matter how the society around us may devolve, we remain answerable to a truly higher, and unchanging, Authority.

I am speechless. And depressed.
In a free society, people have the right to different opinions on the complex moral issue of homosexuality. The government has no right to impose one particular liberal viewpoint through the public schools.
Solomon Schecter is a Jewish day school.
Is that a PUBLIC school?
Undermining their own religion?
Notice that the story says several parents of students at the school were there to get marriage licenses..... That tells a lot about the school...doesn't it.

But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Break out the millstones!
YIKES! I have a gay nephew whom I love dearly. He lives with another man. If they got married I would not want to even go to THEIR wedding. I have, after about twenty years, come to terms with his homosexuality... it helps that he doesn't screw around at gay bars in SF. He lives quietly with one other man. They don't even mention that they are gay, they just want to be LEFT ALONE. They don't hold hands or kiss or ANYTHING like that in front of us or in public. I couldn't stand to go to a wedding where they kissed..... And I love these two guys!
Or, more appropriately, the un-making of the USA and the deep decline of morals.
Brainwashing in action...
