WARWICK, R.I. --

It seems another mural at a Rhode Island high school is causing a controversy.

Elizabeth Bierenday, a junior at Pilgrim High School in Warwick, was asked to create a mural for the school.

She sketched a mural that showed the growth of a boy into adulthood. The last image showed a man with a woman and child and wedding rings over their heads.

It would have been OK showing them have gay sex, though.

Seems strange that murals in Rhode Island are stirring up so much controversy. Assaults from the left are coming so often and vigorously, one can hardly keep up.

I don’t remember: when exactly did we vote to destroy our culture and end the ideal of a mother and father and a family as the cornerstone of society?

Heavens to Gaia! What an evil little witch to be even thinking that heterosexual marriage is something children should be exposed to!

Maybe she should have shown the guy as a HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER having sex with a group of males and females and maybe a few animals. That would have brought applause from at least some of the faculty. In fact, she probably knows some real teachers whose faces she could have used in the mural. Maybe even administrators.

The family was the first human institution created by God,
and it is the vehicle by which knowledge of Him is passed from generation to generation.

The family also resists dependency on the State,
which eventually will be under the full control of Satan.

Indeed, it’s no wonder that the family is prime target #1 of the left.

How much of the official’s actions were motivated by hatred, as opposed to acting out of a regard for “equality?”

Equality, it appears, has very little to do with the war on marriage.

Because it will make it easier for when they start trying to make pedophilia “ok”.

All the student artist would have to do is say that the man and women are transgendered and married to each other. No problem.

What is the administration contact email?

This is beyond outragious since even atheist couples wear rings and get married. There is no religion in this mural.

It is only sexual pervs who want to make mother a four letter word.

I’ve grown to expect challenges to words like “God” in the schools or to prayers. But I have to admit, this is a new cultural low. I’m actually speechless (but not completely commentless.)

Well, you know, we can't have images of normal heterosexual marriage and procreation being part of a school mural. Don'tcha know? Those are oppressive and counter-revolutionary. No growing boy should be exposed to such things.

Images showing gay butt-sex might be a little over the line, but maybe just have the "woman" in the marriage by replaced by another boy, and the "baby" replaced by an adopted third-world victim of vicious capitalist oppression.

That's much more typical of the New Cultural Norms, which are designed to destroy America.

Now please 'scuse me, I gotta go puke...

The “public school” is BY FAR, the largest, most expensive, most subversive, and most destructive entitlement program in the country.

The “public school” is better understood as the “government school collective”.

It is silly to imagine that you can fix the public schools, because the very concept itself is communist.

Any child that comes out of the government school collective with their moral compass and common sense intact does so in spite of the government school indoctrination, not because of it.

If you want to win the culture war, have lots of children (see my tagline) and homeschool them or form your own school cooperative with your church or synagogue and like-minded friends and relatives.

Nobody loves your children more than you do.

Nobody can teach your children like you can.

Your children would love nothing better than to be taught by you, if you start doing so before they are corrupted by the government school collective.

It is hypocritical for you to submit your children to an authority with whom you fundamentally disagree. And your children will know it.

If you have children, make whatever sacrifices you must to get them out of the public schools.

DO NOT FEED THE BEAST!

Especially not with your own children.

said she was told that her original design may be offensive or a religious symbol.

The U.S. government turned America into a flop house for the world, and some Americans can't figure out what happened...

They fail to see the U.S. government divided the once united, yet it's right in front of their faces.

That SHOULD be the end of tax payer money to that school district - but I’m sure that demand would be met with “huh?” followed by shrieks of racism.

Let's see, it's the married life that offended and needed painting over because it doesn't represent every student's life. Riiiiiight.

He can walk? A+ grade? The cap and gown? The laptop? The musical instrument? Being male? Are these representative of every student's life?

There's a "Golden Arches" and hamburger in the mural too. She's offending the vegans as well.

In many ways her mural is downright subversive vs. the "diversity" police.

Portlandia. These skits are mostly improv.

Kind of politically incorrect since they make fun of alternative life styles. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldQGPwuHhkM

Oh, OK, I've read about Portlandia, and will check it out. Armisen is a comic genius. I die over his Latin tv show on SNL. Last night he had Sofia Vergara on it, doing his special dance. LOL!!
