Hate Comes To High School
Bob Parks: Outside The Wire ^ | 11/2/07 | Bob Parks

Posted on 11/02/2007 6:52:45 AM PDT by bocopar

Let me preface this by admitting I may be somewhat old fashioned here, but I don't believe sexuality should be taught in schools, especially when injected with the liberal interpretation of "tolerance". Be it hetero, homo, bi, or trans, aren't there more pressing scholastic topics that should be covered more in depth, like mathematics, English, and science?

Apparently not.

"'The Laramie Project' is being performed this weekend at Acton-Boxborough High School. It presents a message to its audience that Christians with traditional moral values toward homosexuality are hateful, bigoted, and likely murderers. It's pretty chilling stuff if you're a Christian in that town these days. Already, kids in the school are wearing their "erase hate" bracelets (given out by the play's pro-homosexual promoters) and repeating the play's messages among themselves."MassResistance

Sodomites are on the side of Satan, the same as Muslim only we are told they they are “gay” and have so much to offer us.

Of course Matthew Shepherd was acutally murdered over drugs according to the perps.

It had nothing to do with him being gay.

ABC News 20/20 did a story on it.

Facts have never got in the way of a good liberal morality play.

From the playbook...

http://www.uhuh.com/nwo/communism/comgoals.htm

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

We can never let secular progressive dictate definitions.

That's so gay.

Aren't their any normal boys in that school?

You mean ones that aren't on Ritalin?

Probably not.

I've come to the conclusion that, in exchange for free babysitting, most parents will roll over for any sh-- dished out by the gov't schools.

I don't see any evidence to indicate otherwise.

Are you sure you didn’t pull that from the Libertarians? It sounds just like them.

In Massachusetts, children are prey.

See, there is prey in school.

“The most you can expect some Christians to do against homosexuals… is pray for them.”

Which, of course, is offensive because to pray for them implies that something is wrong with them.

Good column, Bob, and thanks for including all the links. I’m bookmarking this for future reference.

Thanks Sage, but unfortunately this is an ongoing battle against indoctrination.
I’m in this for the long haul.

I condemn any violence, whether it is bias motivated or not. But the hysteria that follows over incidents that are essentially isolated helps keep the nation divided. You just cannot change human nature, unfortunately. People forget we have a population of 300 MILLION. With that many people it is just natural that a certain percentage will be evil, violent, etc. To castigate a whole nation, or even certain segments, over the acts of a few scumbags is just wrong.

It would be a lot more than just the left.

I'm pretty sure the name of the homosexual club at Calhoun HS in Merrick, LI is called World of Difference. When I look at the list of clubs, this is the only one that fit the bill. Unless they don't want to publish online what I have seen posted in the school & been told is in the school.

"Student run organization that strives to promote acceptance, understanding and kindness among students at Calhoun. The club organizes various activities from after school events to in school educational programs to fundraisers with the hope of making Calhoun a place where all students can feel welcome, confident and free of bias and discrimination."

I just stood incredulous as a guidance counselor told me after the Freshman class parent meeting how hard it was to get kids to join. Duh!

I have seen the play.

It is really dumb. In the performance I saw, all the actors were homosexual, women and men. It is full of stupid feel-good cliches and sobbing sentimentality and lies.

The preacher/minister is your standarb Bible-thumping southerner. Up there Wyoming of course you are going to have a preacher with a southern accent.

It infuriates me that a high school is sponsoring this play. It is outrageous. When is this going to end?

But I think a previous poster is correct -— as long as the state will baby - sit their kids while they go to work they will put up with anything.
