Attorney Claims Lesbian Teachers Using Schools to Push Homosexual Lifestyle
(AgapePress) - A California school district may be taken to court after a group of high school teachers began blatantly promoting homosexuality in their classrooms.
Recently a group of lesbian teachers in the Scotts Valley Unified School District (Santa Cruz County) started hanging pro-homosexual posters in their classrooms, discussing homosexuality in their classrooms, and providing referrals to homosexual and bisexual organizations to students questioning their sexuality. Numerous parents have complained to school officials, who said they would investigate matters. However, no administrative correction has been initiated in response to the complaints.
Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute, says the teachers are engaged in a campaign of homosexual indoctrination, and are using anti-harassment laws as a soapbox for state-sponsored endorsement of their lifestyle. And they seem to be getting the support to do so, not only from the district, but from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and area homosexual organizations as well.
"We know it's a very liberal community," Dacus notes, "a very hostile, intolerant community for the rights of parents, and intolerant towards those people of faith who do not openly accept and embrace homosexuality and other forms of deviant lifestyles." Although he says PJI is not really expecting the Santa Cruz County school officials to implement changes, he says his legal group is "hoping they'll take it under serious consideration."
The PJI attorney feels the school district is being hypocritical since, even as the teachers are engaging in their pro-homosexual conduct under the guise of tolerance, posters celebrating traditional families are not allowed. However, he points out that complaints from outraged parents have had virtually no effect on the school administrators.
The officials have even ignored requests from district parents that the pro-homosexual posters be taken out of the classrooms and pinned instead on public bulletin boards where a student would have the option of reading or ignoring them, or that they be placed alongside posters showing competing viewpoints.
A Hostile Environment for Pro-Family Values A number of the dissenting parents have argued that the students are a captive audience being forced to confront high-pressure influence from militantly pro-homosexual teachers who stand in a position of authority over them, as well as from aggressive homosexual students. According to PJI's sources, a student who is not interested in joining a "diversity club" at school is sometimes subjected to obscene gestures and other forms of harassment from homosexual peers.
According to Dacus, what is happening in some of the district schools is that pro-homosexual teachers are being allowed to create a hostile environment for students who hold faith-based or traditional values that regard homosexuality as immoral. "Pro-homosexual indoctrination, unfortunately, has become not the exception but almost the rule for most California schools as well as for other schools in liberal parts of this country," he says.
But while homosexual groups and the ACLU reportedly claim this type of tolerance and diversity education is needed for schools to comply with anti-harassment laws, the head of PJI says this is misleading. He contends that U.S. lawmakers never meant to enable teachers or school officials to use the anti-harassment legislation as a tool for promoting homosexuality through the public education system.
Nevertheless, Dacus asserts, it is happening and cannot be ignored. "Parents need to wake up," he says, "and they need to realize that public education can actually be a very harmful, very damaging thing for their children if they're not careful." However, the attorney reminds pro-family citizens that anti-harassment laws were not written exclusively for homosexuals but to apply equally to all Americans, including those who hold traditional values.
PJI sent an attorney to address the trustees of the Scotts Valley School Board at a meeting held last Monday, which focused exclusively on the poster controversy. At the heart of the discussion was a complaint filed more than two years ago by a district parent regarding the display of the pro-homosexual posters in district classrooms. The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that more than 400 people attended the February 7 school board meeting, which went on until almost 11 p.m.
The Scotts Valley School Board took no action, but board president Sue Roth and Superintendent Stephen Fiss planned to meet again to discuss the issue further. Roth was quoted in the Sentinel as saying she is not sure anything needs to be done, but she would hope the parent who filed the initial complaint will not pursue a lawsuit.
We had a lesbian softball teacher come to our high school and the girls made fun of her so much that she left.
Good for this lawsuit! But I'm afraid the verdict will be that it's perfectly ok to post pro-homosexual stuff in the classroom, as long as there are no crosses or pro-Christian stuff posted.
They keep calling themselves Lesbians, but few of them look Greek.
Decertify the teachers' unions and fire these advocates and preachers of homosexuality. They would fire heterosexuals for doing the same behavior. What's good for one has to be good for the other.
Hey, if people want to live in the land of fruits and nuts they shouldn't whine about what comes with the territory.
If those parents were more careful of their children's welfare they'd have apply both legal and political pressure on the school administration before all of the gay stuff started.
High Schools: The new "alternative lifestyles" meat market.
"...she would hope the parent who filed the initial complaint will not pursue a lawsuit."
And THAT is the basis of ALL action/response by
the nation's Boards of Education: Avoid law suits
at all costs. They are led to the trough by the local Superintendent who is instrumental in the Board's
hiring of legal advice. And since both the Supt. and Lawyer are admittedly more familiar with school law
than the members, it is rare for a School Board
to refute the Supt+Lawyer power combo.
If it involves a bedroom, it shouldn't be taught in a classroom.
This article certainly flies in the face of people who say Homosexuals are born that way. If they are born Homosexual why all the recruiting. No Most homosexuals are created by a bad experience as a child , Parents who are perverse or by recruitment from other homosexuals.
"We had a lesbian softball teacher come to our high school and the girls made fun of her so much that she left."
I'm betting that they made fun of her for a different reason. I can't recall a single one of my high school or junior high female gym teachers that wasn't obviously lesbian. Of course, they didn't talk about it, but there it was.
One more reason to end government-run schools.
And you're proud of that? Did she discuss her lifestyle with you, or were you just mean, bratty, snotty kids?
If a teacher in a public highschool promoted the fun of russian roulet how quickly would that teacher be suspended? How is that different when the bullets are body fluids and just move at a slower rate to kill the person just as dead. Both are exciting im sure until the consequences play themselves out.
In California, DOUBLE SHOCKING.
In Santa Cruz, TRIPLE SHOCKING.
What next? Suing for access to Boy Scouts???
But there's NO HOMO AGENDA!
"The Scotts Valley School Board took no action..."
The board should be VOTED OUT, that will get the message across.
