Milwaukee to Open Nation's First Homosexual Middle School

Milwaukee to Open Nation's First Homosexual Middle School

By Kathleen Gilbert

MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin, January 8, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Milwaukee's Alliance School, one of the few officially "gay-friendly"  high schools in the country, has been given clearance to extend their pro-homosexual curriculum to sixth, seventh, and eighth graders.

The proposal went through easily last month, with the city's board of education unanimously approving it by default, as it was not pulled for further discussion or a vote.  Tina Owen, Lead Teacher of Alliance, said they would be accepting applications from middle-school-age children for the 2009-10 school year immediately.

Marty Lexmond, the director of school innovation for Milwaukee Public Schools, told U.S. News and World Report that such an institution was needed to help adolescents, who are now increasingly publicly identifying their sexual orientation as early as middle school.

Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute was dismayed that the motion went through with no discernable opposition.

"I'm stunned that the religious leaders, the Christian pastors in Milwaukee, did not rise up in righteous indignation against this school," lamented Higgins. "That is what I find perhaps equally [as] troubling, if not more so."

"I think it's unconscionable to be affirming this in public schools," said Higgins. "This is not an issue for public schools. And kids at 11- and 12- and 13- and 14-[years of age] are confused on many issues - sexuality [being] one of them."
 
Regina Griggs, executive director of the group Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX), agreed.

"To affirm an 11-year-old? Please," said Griggs. "They haven't even gone through puberty, but they know that they want to have sex with other men and women? I'm sorry, but it's ridiculous."

The original Alliance high school opened four years ago, also with little opposition. Other similar plans across the country, however, have not had it as easy as the Milwaukee school.

In Chicago, plans for a "gay-friendly" high school were recently delayed due to concerns from both sides of the debate, as some feared that the plans amounted to segregating homosexuals.  And when Manhattan's Harvey Milk High School opened in 2003, named for an openly homosexual politician of the 1970s, students met with protesters outside the school's doors.

Wouldn't it be nice if they would found a math and science-affirming school? That would be downright innovative.

We found one. I’m sitting in it now in my pajamas. So is the kiddo.

We went to our spelling bee last night (homeschool association) where children actually got disqualified by spelling a word incorrectly. What a vicious group of people. (You can hear the /s, right?)

The first public version of [Robert A. Heinlein's] Future History chart was featured by editor John W. Campbell in Astounding Science Fiction for May 1941. Heinlein was careful to point out that his chart notes were science fictional background, not predictions. But who else in 1941 would have placed a note on a chart marking the 1960s as "The Crazy Years"?

Well, Bob was dead center right about the 1960s... but had he lived a few more years, he would have been sick at the coming "Really, Really Crazy Years" ahead with the inauguration of the Obamanation.

Surely this is a clear indication that Western Civilization is sliding into oblivion quickly.

What do you call a bully at a gay school?
There is no way in hell, or Wisconsin, that I’d send my kid to that...or any other similiar...school.
I feel sorry for the straight kids who have to go there. Especially their sports teams. The harrassment they’ll get from other kids will be incredible.

Pedophilia is one of those words that you won’t be able to find in the dictionary some time soon. Remember the APA report that Adult-Child Sex might be “beneficial” for the child?

“Tina Owen, Lead Teacher of Alliance, said they would be accepting applications from middle-school-age children for the 2009-10 school year immediately.”

I’ll be curious as to exactly how many applications they will receive, given the fact that the traditional definition of marriage laws are overwhelmingly supported by the populace of every state - even in Massachusetts and California.

Best not to send "mixed signals" in the Boys Room, where smoking has a whole 'nother meaning. In fact, why not just stay away from the Boys Room altogether...

Bet they have the best Drama Club and most talented Thespian Society, specializing in Broadway musicals and Tennessee Williams.

The Social Liberals must soon run out of ways to stomp on the feet of propriety. But, no... I suppose not. There will always be a method of pushing the issue and the terms of the debate into a corner where no honest or sane person would prefer to go. It, therefore, dulls the senses, which may be precisely their goal. It certainly can't be the acceptance and assimilation of "Gay" children into the broader society of Americans.

This is multi-culturalism, the decisive and intentional destruction of the melting pot paradigm in the United States, where the best Traditional Americans can hope to accomplish is the allowance of Chastity among a long list of disease and birth control methods.

And people tell me there's no devil "because there is no god." Nonsense.

You are the salt of the Earth, but if salt hath lost its savor, it is good for nothing any longer but to be trodden underfoot by men.

By rounding up children to put in government camp school it will only lead to more child abuse now rampant in Wisconsin and Nebraska.

Perhaps it’s time to formally organize a boycott of Public Schools. I used to think what Boortz and others said about the parents of children sent to public school, that they were engaged in direct abuse, was extreme. Having examined the question from several angles, now, I see that I was wrong.

As if a school that promotes and teaches the benefits of sodomy has anything to do with “social justice”. I'm sure they will leave out the physical, moral and spiritual peril of the homosexual lifestyle which proves they could really care less about these kids.
