Skip to comments.A first grade class took a school-sponsored trip to a gay wedding

You're not going to believe this.
In the same week that the No on 8 campaign launched an ad that labeled as "lies" claims that same-sex marriage would be taught in schools to young children, a first grade class took a school-sponsored trip to a gay wedding. Eighteen first graders traveled to San Francisco City Hall Friday for the wedding of their teacher and her lesbian partner, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. The school sponsored the trip for the students, ages 5 and 6, taking them away from their studies for the same-sex wedding.
The wedding was officiated by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who arrogantly welcomed the arrival of same-sex marriage by saying "The door's wide open now. It's gonna happen, whether you like it or not."
It's no wonder that the No on 8 campaign is fighting tooth and nail to get our ads pulled off the air. It's because they're true. Not only will schoolchildren be taught about same-sex marriage if Prop 8 fails, it's already happening.
To make sure Californians know the truth, we need you to do three things right now:
Thank you for all that you do. Please spread the word and make sure your neighbors know the truth before they vote!

I used to be a “bad” person for expecting people to wait until they were married. Next I was a “bad” person for assuming people were heterosexual. Then I was a “bad” person for thinking that marriage was between a man and a woman and that it was the foundation of a family. Now I’m a “bad” person for not wanting my 5 year old to go to a gay wedding.
Can you say “slippery slope?” Too late. We’re tumbling headlong down it.
I always cry at weddings...
SHEESH! That's a bit extreme, isn't it?
Just because you don't believe in homosexual marriage, doesn't mean you have to spew this kind of vile stuff, does it?
Ewww. Close that backdoor Gavin.
That pic always makes me laugh...lol. What parent would raise a child in San Francisco these days anyway? They need to have their heads examined...(eye roll)
“believe in gay marriage”? Sheesh, THAT’S what I’d call extreme language. If you want to know what’s vile stuff, see post 4.
I’m not attacking anyone. They can do as they please if they keep it private. By private I mean not in my face and not in the face of young kids. But DO NOT expect me to condone it, embrace it, approve of it, or support it.
The problem is that they confuse “tolerance” which most of us have, with “approval.” If I approved of it, I wouldn’t have to tolerate it, now would I?
There is no tolerance for my views by them. Double standard.
I agree that the "field trip" was absolutely, and positively innapropriate.
If my son's school suggested such a "field trip" I would not allow him to attend and I would raise holy hell at the school about it.
I was just making a point that ALL homosexuals are not "filthy" and "disease ridden".
If you look at my post, I didn't call it "gay marriage". Yes, post 4 made me shudder.
Just lost my breakfast. Thanks a lot, billorites.
We have to hold the line in California. McCain should run one ad in California the last week of the election in California detailing how he supports Proposition 8 and the definition of Marriage Between a Man and a Woman. Only if he has the cash. A 527 for California attacking Barack for opposing Prop 8 would be useful these last weeks. It would make California interesting since it is such a singular issue there. We need someone with enough money to do what McCain and the GOP will not to effectively take advantage of the explosive nature of this issue. The charges are set in several states and no one is lighting the fuse against Obama and the Democrat party.
I believe that parents have to sign off on any trip off campus, for any reason. If there is no signed permission slip the child must stay back.
I would not sign a slip for such an event.
“I would not sign a slip for such an event”
You don’t think the permission slip would say “Permission to attend a Gay Marriage” do you?
It might say permission to attend the zoo, or city park, or something along those lines.
“another reason to homeschool!”
With extremists like Wm. Ayers and other Marxists now poised to rule the public education system and set the curriculum, the teacher’s unions endorsing socialist candidates like Obama, people better start homeschooling.
The liberal demand now is not just that we allow people to make their own choices and be free, it is that we must THINK like they TELL us and accept THEIR definitions of EVERYTHING! (It’s our childrens’ minds they intend to have!)
The second they achieve this in a state it becomes hard to ever undo it.
Permission for your first-grader to attend a field trip to City Hall! SOUNDS educational, doesn’t it?
I don’t hate them because they are GAY.... I hate them because the FLAUNT it!
I was down in the bay area yesterday for a nephew’s baptism. I was actually surprised to see that the Yes on 8 yard signs and bumper stickers outnumbered the No ones by roughly 6:1. Granted, this was down in San Mateo but still, I wouldn’t have imagined that. Maybe people that live there are as tired of this minority rule as the rest of us, I know I am. I’ve got my Yes on 8 yard sign up, I’m just waiting for someone to try and tear it out.
They never come out and state their actual plans, they’re gay not stupid.
“What parent would raise a child in San Francisco these days anyway?”
The sad thing is homosexual marriage is spreading across the nation via the courts - don’t think it can’t happen in any of the states or where you live.
“Maybe people that live there are as tired of this minority rule as the rest of us, I know I am.”
Eventually folks will realize they are taking money from real families and children and subsidizing gay couples.
Fully aware of that threat...don’t worry.
“For the record, I DON’T believe homosexual marriage should become the law of the land.”
But you love kimchi?
Indeed, I do.
“Indeed, I do.”
I’ll try just about any food once but never could get past the smell of either winter or summer kimchi, you’re more adventurous than me, I do LOVE bulgogi though!
Next week a tour of a bath house. What did you learn at school today?
Bill O’Reilly is right when he says polygamy will be next and then no marriage.
What’s the problem. I don’t see much difference of a field trip to a gay marriage and a field trip to the zoo.
Maybe next time they can take them to planned parenthood and teach them about abortions.
I am sure they will be the first ones to line up and learn the Obama anthem and special salute and his songs.
Aren’t they precious these little children who are taught to hate at such an early age.
Good Lord-I’ve been all over the U.S. and some parts of Arkaksas, and I’ve never seen that before.
Sometimes, I fantasize about just letting the Taliban take over this country for 6 months, tops,just to clean house on some of these folks. I think about Madonna, Rosie O’Donut, the militant gays, the Crips and Bloods-just the look on their faces when they realize that the “change” won’t be good for them.
Then, when the job is done, we win it back. Hell, it might be a reality the way things are going, why not try and look for a silver lining?
what they do is disgusting and I am fed up of hearing about well we know some and are very nice people.
This what what they want you to think, they care nothing for you but to spread their agenda.
sorry but to even know of a man going back to bed with another man after talking to them makes me feel sick
friend of mine said you have to meet Bill but I’m not sure if his boyfriend is there.
I nearly fainted, but said
WHAT are you serious, I don’t want to meet Bill or any other homosexual, forget it.
I can’t even look at them knowing the disgusting acts they do
I'm not sure what bothers people more about that photo: That he's wearing white or the whole "off the shoulders" look.
