Letter: 'Gay Day' not for 'the public'(Newton, MA)

Letter: 'Gay Day' not for 'the public' Wednesday, December 28, 2005

A few days before Newton North's all-day "Gay Day" assembly, a parent called and asked me to attend it for him because he had to work. I'd been to several over the past few years, when my own children were students. (It was on Dec. 7 - they had Gay Day instead of Pearl Harbor Day.)

I called the superintendent's office and was told that this year "the public" was not allowed. Taxpayers in Newton who aren't Newton North parents have been to assemblies there in the past without any problem. I have been to several school events around town, even though my kids weren't students at the time.

I've lived in Newton 42 years. I've sent eight children through Newton North. I help pay for that school. And I'm suddenly not entitled to attend an assembly? And since when am I simply "The Public?" I thought it took a village to raise children.

After attending five years of these assemblies, there really couldn't be much indoctrination more shocking that I've already heard. Had I come anyway, would the Newton Police have been called to arrest me, like Principal Jennifer Huntington did last year to two parents she didn't like?

In her column, Karla Hailer-Fidelman seems to like "Gay Day" a lot. Do you remember, Karla, three years ago when I sat in back of you as two little girls were swapping tongues there? May I suggest to you, Karla, that you find a support group on parenting. And I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah.

Of course, we know this can't be true, since the schools really, really want parental involvement. (/sarcasm)

Exactly. Nothing at all surprising here.
Massachusetts is a toilet.

Newton is upscale and relatively Jewish. Not sure of the demo when Fr. Drinan represent the district, but when the Pope
told priests to get out of politics, Barney Frank rented an apartment and ran for that Congressional seat.

That would be REALLY unfortunate for Mass to lose some House seats... (or better yet, union-hood!)

They went throught this back after the 1980 census, iirc. They managed to redistrict the only Republican out of her seat.

I don't think they have that luxury this time. I wonder if any of them are under Federal indictment...

I'm so mortified, I'm speechless.

"Diversity training" is just doublespeak for "re-education center".

Oppose the liberal agenda. It is despotic.

It never was about "consenting adults". It was always about perversion at any age. Just another liberal lie to push the agenda through to the masses.

If school events aren't for the "public" then maybe it's time to end "public" education funded by tax dollars.

Might as well have been a gay day as they would have just celebrated the attack on Pearl Harbor and mourned the loss of the Axis.

I think Karla would make some Muslim man a good fourth wife. She would look beautiful in a Burkka.

This is more acurately described as gay porn day imposed upon other people's children by scum of the earth adults who absolutely control Newton. They don't want parents in there to comment on what they do with kids. Parents that put their kids in Newton public schools, even knowing what they are doing, are no better than child abusing pimps.

I have absolutely no tolerance for homosexuals. I don't know why but I cannot stand to be around them.

Maybe it's just the type that manage to constantly, even though not asked, refer to their 'partner'. Like they so need your approval, and the fact that you don't just turn on your heels at that moment is some kind of passive approval.
If someone just casuallly mentioned that he's stolen, or murdered, I kind of doubt that the conversation would just continue along, but with the pressure of the homosexual press, we are intimidated into supressing our real feelings and just tacitly 'approving', like if you comment, you're homophobic and intolerant, yet if you don't you are kind of in a default approval situation.
Why must these people bring it up in the first 2 minutes of conversation, even if NO ONE ASKED?

Yep, I guess I am homophobic.

The way they act turns my stomach.

Whether they like it or not, I have just as much right to be homophobic as they have to being homosexual.
