GILFORD, NH, May 6, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The father of a Gilford High School student was arrested at a school board meeting on Monday night after objecting that the school had assigned his 14-year-old daughter to read a pornographic book without his knowledge or consent.

William Baer, an attorney who moved to New Hampshire from New Jersey, registered his complaint about the book Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult, which includes a graphic depiction of sex between two teenagers, at the local school board meeting.

Maybe the good news in this is that the father is an attorney.

He may literally make the School Board pay for this...

One of my mother's many encounters with whacko nuns involved one who had assigned The Joy of Sex to the freshmen in her Catholic high-school religion class.

“But both the Laconia Daily Sun and the Manchester Union-Leader declined, saying it was unfit to print due to its graphic content.”

The sexualization of our children by the left continues.

Sue and press charges against the teacher, school and schoolboard to forcing the child to experience pornography.

Why not the cop, too?

Our side needs to get much tougher and make examples out of people like this. Ruin their lives, Run them into bankruptcy. Break up their marriages. Make their children cry.

They do it to us.

What we have is a conspiracy between the Courts, Law Enforcement and the two major political parties to use an ever expanding governmental bureaucracy to strip citizens of their freedoms, reduce them to serfs of the state, and to impose globalist values on America.

The system is broken and as long as Americans are apathetic enough to allow it to continue to be so, incidents like this will continue to occur.

I think we have a conundrum of epic proportions here.

How does one address the apparent “apathy” without coming off looking like a nutjob? By this I mean the following;

If a person reacts violently to this, if they’re not killed outright, they’re disowned, vilified, etc by both sides...yet if one can’t go through the system since it’s apparently corrupt, what is the recourse?

I hope he can sue them all.

LiveLeak published a few brief excerpts from the book. I wouldn't post something like this on a respected forum such as FreeRepublic, but if it's deemed acceptable to 14-year-old girls by the government-run school, then I suppose we adults should be able to handle it. (My apologies in advance to Jim Rob and the moderators, but it's important that we see why the school board members who had the concerned father arrested for speaking out refused to read the passage in the meeting.) Remember, this is considered acceptable for young teens by a public school board and not requiring parental notification.
From LiveLeak:

"Relax," Matt murmured, and then he sank his teeth into her shoulder. He pinned her hands over her head and ground his hips against hers. She could feel his erection, hot against her stomach.
... She couldn’t remember ever feeling so heavy, as if her heart were beating between her legs. She clawed at Matt's back to bring him closer.
"Yeah," he groaned, and her pushed her thighs apart. And then suddenly Matt was inside her, pumping so hard that she scooted backward on the carpet, burning the backs of her legs. ... (H)e clamped his hand over her mouth and drove harder and harder until Josie felt him come.
Semen, sticky and hot, pooled on the carpet beneath her.

I'm far from being prudish, but this has no place in a middle school.

Arrested for being a MAN. The education establishment hates true men.
The soviet union had the KGB. The USA now uses the police to enforce political correctness.

“The soviet union had the KGB. The USA now uses the police to enforce political correctness.”

Based on what we’re witnessing on a daily level here, I don’t see a difference.

A story that plays into where we are now bears recitation. I’m working from memory here and some of the details may not be precisely correct but the take away message has stuck with me all these years.
In August, 1977, a small church in Louisville, Nebraska – Faith Baptist – was raided by armed agents of the state Department of Education for running a Christian school. The ostensible reason for the raid was that they were NOT adhering to the state “requirement” that ALL schools and teachers be “certified” by the state. A judge issued an order that the school be closed. They remained open and the raid ensued. The teachers and 17 students children were terrorized as they were held at gunpoint on the floor. The pastor, one Everett Sileven, was arrested and held in jail for some time.
Public pressure forced his release and he began a crusade the effects of which are still felt today in the Christian and home school communities.
Here’s the take away message about which I have the clearest memory: Pastor Sileven appeared on a TV debate program to defend his church school. Also there was an official of the Nebraska Department of Education.
At one point, either the moderator or Pastor Siliven turned to the school bureaucrat and asked the real reason why the state had such a problem with their small church school?
Without missing a beat, through a sneer anyone who has visited the DMV will recognize, the bureaucrat declared (and I’m paraphrasing):
“Because you are denying the state schools needed money. And because you are educating children outside the public school system, in the world we’re designing for the future, THEY WON’T FIT IN!”
Dwell on those last 4 words for a moment.
If you’re curious about just what that world they were designing might look like, LOOK AROUND.
You’re living in it!!

Surprised the feminists haven’t protested the “pinned” arms and covered mouth. Sounds more like rape to me.

It needs to be presented for what it is: a form of pedophelia. Anyone that tries to sexualize children is setting them up to be exploited and are accessories to those engaging in the behavior.

Well put.

At the very least it's theft of the child's innocence.

There’s an interesting video on youtube about the Nazis. In it a they describe Hitler’s brides which are girls who get pregnant to produce new German soldiers. If their parents complain the kids can threaten them and have them hauled away by the Nazis.

Another New York transplant living in Red Hampshire, which is probably the main reason the school system is pimping her books...

She lives in very expensive Hanover, RH (referred to as the capitol of East Vermont); which is further to the left than Berkeley...perfect place for her and her ilk.

Keep in mind Red Hampshire is BIG on abortion...maybe that explains the plague of ticks sent by Yahweh this year.
