Marylandís New Show and Tell

If you need proof that same-sex “marriage” is about more than “love,” look no further than Montgomery County, Maryland. There, parents are dealing with the fallout of the state’s redefinition of marriage with a sweeping new sex education curriculum. Moms and dads, who were already fighting an uphill battle on the content of the lessons, are now coping with the news that homosexuality will be woven throughout — shattering families’ fragile hold on parents’ rights.

Yesterday, the Montgomery County School Board took up the issue in a debate over the district’s health curriculum. Not surprisingly, there were calls for an even greater emphasis on sexual orientation, as well as introducing the topic to students earlier than ever before. In the current curriculum, kids are asked to reflect on things like “the benefits of ‘coming out,’” and the harms of “homophobia… which can he shown in mild ways like laughing at a gay joke.” “Children are not born hating. They learn to hate and fear from messages they receive while growing up,” read one section. One of the proposed videos even includes a positive look at transgenderism. “Your sexual orientation cannot change,” the text insists. “If you were attracted to women, and all of the sudden, you’re attracted to a man, it’s because you just became aware of your true orientation.” If liberals get their way, the indoctrination could begin as earlier as this fall with middle schoolers. For the County, the fireworks over sex ed are nothing new. Since 2005, parents have been in a tug-of-war over the content of the lessons, even going so far as to sue the state over the suggestion that homosexuality is innate.

In the meantime, curriculum like Montgomery County’s is just the tip of the iceberg for the changes same-sex “marriage” will bring to a classroom near you. Like the ripples created when a rock is dropped in a pond, the ripples created by the redefinition of marriage will reach far into society. That’s important for every American to understand, but especially libertarians who have yet to recognize that their “live and let live” mentality cannot work if our goal is to preserve liberty. Make sure you know how to spot these agendas in your district. Click here to download a free copy of FRC’s booklet, “Homosexuality in Your Child’s School.”

The people of Maryland voted for gay marriage in a referendum. I think it was H.L. Mencken who said that “democracy is a system in which the voters get the kind of government they want— and they get it good and hard.”

If you don’t like it, put your kids in private schools that you can trust or homeschool because you will be fighting a losing battle. Either that, or get used to the fact that you will have to spend most of your family time deprogramming your kids.

“Your sexual orientation cannot change,” the text insists. “If you were attracted to women, and all of the sudden, you’re attracted to a man, it’s because you just became aware of your true orientation.”

I assume this means that if, through prayer, faith, therapy, or will power, you go back to being attracted to women, it's because you were mistaken when you thought you became aware, and now you really are aware of your true orientation.

You assume wrong. Suggesting that one can go from gay to straight makes you a hate group.

"Your sexual orientation cannot change,” the text insists. “If you were attracted to women, and all of the sudden, you’re attracted to a man, it’s because you just became aware of your true orientation.” "

Isn't that funny how sexual orientation is there from birth and cannot, no sir ever change. Except for when it does then it's great. But only if you "discover" you're gay.

If you are repulsed by being gay and find yourself attracted to the opposite gender, well, that's not acceptable, and probably the result of brainwashing.

Hence why illegal in CA for a minor to even TALK about feeling "not so gay" anymore.

If that advice is to a woman it means she has gone from lesbian to straight. Is that what they mean? :-)

Keep in mind that is Montgomery County, Maryland a suburb of DC.

My county Howard is NE of Montgomery and is not quite that bad yet.

Cant bet on how long that will last though. Lots of sheep live here now.

Yeah, unfortunately, when you have an active subversive element working 24/7 night and day to get control, and a feeble opposing party too scared of being called “rayyyyyycist!” to do anything to stop them, this is what you get.

Don’t blame me; I voted for overturning the gay marriage statute in the 2012 referendum.
