Students Rally for Same-Sex Marriages (Barf Alert!)
LA Times ^ | 5/30/04 | Jessica Garrison

Posted on 05/31/2004 2:44:13 PM PDT by wagglebee

About 100 teenagers — armed with ear-splitting screams and hand-lettered signs — rallied Saturday in Westwood in support of marriage for same-sex couples.

"It's important for everyone to be able to live the way they want to," said Kate Heller, 16, a student at Winward School in West Los Angeles.

Two teens from Winward's new Gay-Straight Alliance, Sarah Freed, 17, and Joe Goldman, 14, organized the Federal Building rally, which drew students, gay and straight, from high schools across Orange, Ventura and Los Angeles counties, along with parents, teachers and a fluffy white poodle.

John Duran, mayor of West Hollywood, where three of five council members are gay, listened to the cacophony of cheering youths and honking car horns and smiled in amazement.

"They are part of changing America," he said.

Polls show that young people are far more likely than their elders to be in favor of legalizing gay marriage. A 2001 study of high school seniors found that 66% favored allowing same-sex couples to marry.

On Saturday, 16-year-old Stephanie Gross compared the push for gay marriage to the struggle against segregation.

"It's part of something a lot bigger than any of us," she said as she helped make posters with phrases such as "Love Is Marriage."

Earlier this month, Massachusetts became the first state to legalize same-sex marriage, a move that state's Supreme Court authorized in November. Closer to home, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in February — and stopped March 11 when the California Supreme Court halted the practice. California's highest court has begun hearing arguments about whether Newsom had the authority to permit the marriages.

OK, I want to carry a gun and smoke cigars in public buildings (that my tax dollars helped build), cut down trees I don't like and teach my children about God and prayer. Oh they didn't teach you in your leftist school that these things are protected by the Constitution?

"It's important for everyone to be able to live the way they want to," Kate Heller, aged 16, sagaciously intoned.

But they can, my dear child; they can. What they cannot expect, however, are the blessings of one and all via the government. If, when you have achieved the ripe old age of 18, you want to have a loving relationship with two other women and a dyslexic chihuahua, that's your business. I agree that you should be allowed to destroy your life in whatever manner you see fit. Just don't ask me to support or condone your behavior with my tax dollars.

Hey Kate! Wow... What a hottie you are! Want to "play" after class gets out? I'm a 30 yr old Executive. Would love to prey on your fresh naive soul. So what if you're a minor, we don't need Age of Consent laws because "everyone should live the way they want to, right?

Didn't California just introduce a bill to lower the voting age to 14? Seriously, you can't make this type of thing up.

All homosexuality is rooted is childhood sexual abuse.

This abuse continues in our schools under the guise of "diversity" and "tolerance." (Winward is a private school with many homosexuals in the administration and faculty.)

Wake up, parents. Protect your children from these fools.

Oh it is? Well dear little moron, I want to live in a world without socialist idiots running around telling ME what should be right and what should be wrong. I want to live in a country where the right to express Christianity is as protected as the right to be a liberal or a muslim, or a sexual deviant. I want to live in a society where my tolerance for different people and different opinions is reciprocated with tolerance for my beliefs and opinions.

But this isn't their real goal, is it?

Hasn't that been THE master plan of both leftist NEA and the Socialist Democratic Party?

And forget "thinking globally."

Thanks in large part to this indoctrination, we've got 14-16 year old gay students stressing the noble importance of "thinking genitally" instead of learning about commerce, history and language.

If the Gay Straight Alliance was involved this means that this was organized by the homosexual group GLSEN. This was some teacher using CHILDREN to promote their private sex act and they were using children as cover.

This is why GLSEN and their GSA homo-sexstyle recruiting club should never ever be allowed near any school.

Imagine if some girls from an oral sex club and demanded taxpayer funding for sex parties. This is what glsen demanded and got with NEA blessings.

A girls' Catholic high school in my county teaches that homosexualality is immoral. Guess what? The majority of students don't care! They feel homosexuals should be permitted to marry.

I don't know if they are doing this just to make a statement, or if they really believe it.

A black girl at the school wrote a brief essay for the article. She believes that homosexuality is immoral.

How many are democrats? How many are in a catholic school just because public schools are a disaster? It may well be that the leftist minded children are the products of pressure from not catholic sources.

This was organised by the Gay Straight Alliance. they don't mention that 100% of the "advisors" are homosexual teachers. They don't mention that GLSEN controls the GSA's like hitler controlled the brownshirts. (remember the story called "the wave") These are the homosexual activists' brownshirts in the schools. It is also a way for GLSEN to have access to children when other programs will not allow direct access.

This was organized by homosexual ADULTS to use imprssionable and confused children to advocate homosexual sex.

It's true that the public schools in this particular city are disasters. The school accepts Catholic girls, Protestant girls, Islamic girls, etc., etc.(The city has a very large Islamic population -- I don't think being a Democrat has much to do with anything).

The school is open to anyone who wishes to apply and can do the work. The school requests that the girls follow their various religions and participate in church services or services at their Mosques.

You can't force teenagers to accept or not accept a certain way of life just because a teacher gets up in front of a class and gives the Church's opinion. Sometimes kids are contrary just to be contrary -- just to get a rise out of adults. Okay, that's fine. I did the same thing.

But I'll bet you five or ten years down the road (or even the day after graduation) when they marry and have children, they'll think twice about whether they approve of homosexual marriage or the lifestyle. They'll think twice because they will remember that they were taught something very different than what kids in many public schools are taught.

That's the difference.

I remember the time when 2 men having sex were charged with "crime against nature" and sent to jail. (like tht was really a punishment to them)

It is a sad state of affairs we are in now....when homosexuals are taking over positions of authority in the church and openly pushing their agenda in the public schools.

sex with the ugliest woman on the planet would have to be better than sex with the bex looking man on the planet, just cause man on man just doesn't fit the scheme of things.

Yes, I guess if morality isn't taught in the home, they're really in trouble.

Our son recalls a sixth grade class where the idiot teacher was instructing them to be tolerate and embrace the homosexual lifestyle as an equal to heterosexuality. Besides our son, the only kids to speak up and refuse to go along were two Hispanic boys and one black girl.

Homosexual Agenda Ping - And the beat goes on....

I like what Travis said - the plunge into the cesspool. What can stop it? Who will try? We need to ask ourselves these questions, and take whatver action we each can take.

At the very least we can RIP our kids out of public schools if humanly possible, and communicate our viewpoint to public officials. And sign petitions. And run for office. And donate money to organizations and candidates who are on the right side. And rip down posters advertising homo-crap from bulletin boards.

And put creative bumper stickers here and there.

Let me know if anyone wants on/off this pinglist.

Increase in support for gay marriage can be attributed to greater tolerance among whites. Minorities are still solidly against it. The gay rights movement is largely a white concept. Homosexuality is taboo in Black/Latino/Islamic circles. Very few minorities march in gay pride parades. Even if gay marriage becomes legal in all 50 states, there is no guarantee that it will last, especially when minority communities become the majority in America.
