Posted on 03/17/2013 8:43:07 AM PDT by caldera599
The Massachusetts Board of Education recently issued formal guidance to the states public schools, telling them how to implement new laws protecting against gender identity discrimination. The Board of Education insists that schools must not only provide equal access to educational activities programs but also proactively create a culture that would make gender-nonconforming and transgender kids feel safe, supported, and fully included.
The result? Transgender children must be allowed to use the restrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex, if they so choose. Teachers will work with other students who object to the invasion of privacy, helping them over come their discomfort and embrace the agenda of tolerance. In addition, schools must eliminate gendered policies such as dress codes (e.g., rules requiring girls, but not boys, to wear dresses to prom, or traditions that dress boys in blue graduation robes while girls wear white) and classroom management strategies that divide children by gender (e.g., a boys line and a girls line for the water fountain). Transgender children will have the right to insist on being called by any name or pronoun they choose, regardless of its biological mismatch. And other students must go along with it or face discipline.

If there is ONE person here on FR that doesn’t think we are in END TIMES, please come forward and tell us why you don’t think so.
Technically, once we acquired the power to wipe out all life on the planet, that was the temporal border after which the planet had crossed into the end times. Now we are coming to the point where the “transgressors are come to the full” per Daniel 8:23, and the time of the “king of fierce countenance, understanding dark sentences” is just around the corner.
Get your kids out of public schools. Don’t let these people have access to their minds or their hearts. We should work to reform the schools, and it may happen over time, but your kids and your grandkids only have now. They can’t wait for reforms that may happen a decade or two down the road.
Setting up private schools for their kids should be job one for churches. More and more are doing it, and thats good and necessary. More need to be doing it. It does little good to put these kids in Sunday school and then hand them over to the depraved and demented 5 days a week for instruction.
2. The mutants are tolerated rather than money spent to reverse the mutations.
3. Meanwhile the transhumanists are working toward a future where we can upload our consciousnesses into whatever bodies we want. We will become "beings" without sex, race, nationality, ethnicity, etc.
4. More and more people will choose to behave in androgynous ways regardless of whether they were "born that way". People will be "boys" on MWF and "girls" on TThSa and whatever on Sundays.
5. We will all learn to shed all of our "biases" in order to prepare for our transhuman future.
Isn't that special.
The public schools have chosen allow the classrooms to sink to the level of their most unruly and unteachable students. There are still a lot of good kids in the public schools, but the worst students set the tone.
#1 Catholics in America have become socially liberal and #2 I quit sending my kids to Catholic school after years and years of battling to keep our school focused on religion and staying affordable to parishioners/Catholics. They decided they were a prep school and wanted to be inclusive to all. The Catholic schools in this country need to get back to providing an affordable Catholic education to Catholics.
Wait until you see the “sex ed” program they’re instituting in Colorado.
It’s total indoctrination, to corrupt our kids.
The Dem’s had to be embarrassed into exempting K-3.
They want to create unsuspecting victims for the child rapists in our schools.
I hate to use kids this way, but I think that CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE is the only option. Basically, as a revolt, have your boys tell the school that they really think they’re girls and thus will play girls sports and use the girls locker room. If enough kids do that, they will have respond and end this crap. I’m thinking they can manage it if it’s only a handful of kids, but if it’s the entire varsity football team all DEMANDING that they be treated as women, then state will have to respond.
Give me a frigging break.
Same in our area. The nuns and priests are gone, and replaced by teachers who mostly do not want to offend and are products of the State educational training schools and requirements. The Catholic high schools, but dint of the fact they are selective (and expensive), have kept academic standards high, but I don't see that even that in the Catholic grammar schools.
At our local Parish grammar school, not only are the teachers soft/squishy on the faith, but the teachers seem all to be rather tired-out matrons, on the verge of retirement. Catholic school can't come anywhere close to competing with our local public school on good salaries and even better benefits, so I understand the challenges that creates as well.
How do you indicate that you are trans-whatever? Can you imagine some teenage boys claiming to be trans, and getting permission to use the girls bathroom and locker room?
We have lost any semblance of common sense, haven’t we???
What about the muslims as well. Are they required to be tolerant of boys in the girls locker rooms?
Government K-12 schooling is a godless socialist-entitlement.
In the history of humankind when has it been possible to reform a socialist-entitlement, single-payer, compulsory-use, GODLESS, police-threat funded, and price fixed monopoly cartel? Government schooling is the absolute living definition of **all** of this!
Conclusion: Government socialist-entitlement schooling must be shut down!
There are entire counties ( and even whole states) where, IF CHRISTIANS AND CONSERVATIVES REMOVED THEIR KIDS, the entire socialist-entitlement schooling system would collapse! Even in the blue states most of these states could completely eliminate government schooling except for the inner cities.
Shutting down government socialist-entitlement schooling **is** completely possible, if conservatives and Christians can be convinced to give up their tuition-free BABYSITTING!
Yeah! I am shouting, jumping up and down, and having a fit! Why is it that other conservatives fail to see the threat to their children and to our nation's freedom, and persist in believing that socialist-entitlement, GODLESS, and price-fixed monopoly cartel schools can be “fixed”? What foolishness!
It's part of the old "Where did we go wrong" symptom. And too, many don't believe that they have gone wrong when they put un-Godly people into the world. Not their problem, you see?
The Catholic High School in my area is $12,000 dollars a year for tuition,plus books and uniforms.
Will ‘transgender rights’ drive Catholics out of public schools?
Something had better do it. Pope John Paul II reminded the faithful in an encyclical that parents are the primary educators of their children (he didn’t use the term “duh!” in the title)
Parents get your children out of there. They are the future of this country.
Mothers quit your jobs and get home, no one is there to take care of it.
Jesus said something about millstones and child abuse.
But no one gives up free babysitting.
The Catholic School in your area might be worse than the public school, as it may be teaching lessons antithetical to the teachings of the Church, but in the name of Catholicism.
The Catholic HS in my area teaches a classical education by teachers who do not go against the teachings of the Church.
How do I know? I ask the kids every day what happened today, and eventually I get them to talk. I never betray their trust for any reason, for fear they won’t talk to me again - if I do it’s CIA level stealth. And I make it my business to know the basic tenets of the Church.
I use their college fund to send them there and they know their college is going to be paid for by them.
