Pro-family views cost ex-Marine a superintendent job in Berkeley

A former Marine’s views about the sanctity of marriage have cost him a job as superintendent of schools in Berkeley, California.

Dr. Edmond Heatley had already been selected as the final candidate and resigned his position as a superintendent in Georgia when news broke that in 2008 he supported Proposition 8, a pro-marriage state ballot initiative adopted by California voters that November.

Local media found a copy of a memo Dr. Heatley wrote when he led the Chino Valley Unified School District, which opposes “the Court’s recent redefinition of marriage” and declares “the ideal learning environment for children is within a nurturing home governed jointly by a mother and a father as primary educators of their children.”

The school board unanimously passed the resolution two months before Proposition 8 prevailed statewide.

Although another school board member, Michael Calta, claimed to have authored the resolution, Dr. Heatley withdrew his candidacy on Monday after the ensuing backlash at Berkeley.

Some denizens of the famously liberal city do not seem to mind the post is vacant, as long as it is not held by someone who believes in traditional values.

One homosexual parent told local media, “Bringing someone on who doesn’t value my family structure…would divide our community at large and support divisiveness.” Berkeley United Schools adopted the “Welcoming Schools” curriculum created by the Human Rights Campaign, a homosexual lobbying organization, in 2010.

He would have been better off to stay in Georgia. At least people there are sane (at least most of them)

He shouldn’t have resigned. He could have negotiated a large settlement.

We should entitle this attack on Dr. Heatley as “A BLACKLASH Against Black Conservatives with traditional values and standards”

Berkeley is not part of America. I did some independent contract work for an Israeli company last spring, and the BDS Nazi simps at Berkeley were a pain in the butt. When it comes time to take back America, anti-Semitic Berkeley needs to be high on the list of Nazi cities to clean up.

Berkeley is not part of America

Once upon a time, it was, as reflected in the streets named for Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William McKinley and Thomas Jefferson, the great historians Hubert Bancroft and John Dalberg Acton (aka Lord Acton), the poets Horatius Bonar and Joseph Addison and the publisher William Randolph Hearst. In today's Berkeley, those street names seem to reflect a civilization that existed long ago in a galaxy far, far away.

And people defended the perversion of homosexuality with what happens behind closed doors has no effect on them. Who’s laughing now?
