"...where some parents claim the measure is unnecessary and could be used to undermine the religious convictions of students who believe that homosexual behavior is wrong.",

I hate to break it to you, but the entire purpose of public schools is to undermine the religious convictions of students and to alienate them from their parents. That is what government schools were founded on and that's what their purpose is.

If you don't believe me, read Samuel Blumenfeld's "Is Public Education Necessary?" He documents how the Socialists, the Unitarians (liberal do-gooders of the day) and conservatives, who wanted to Protestantize the Catholic kids, coalesced to start Public Education. Each group wanted to alienate kids from their parents, each for a different reason, which accounts for the chaos that has accompanied government schools from their beginnings.

I say if this crap isn't resolved by the time school starts or if it goes the wrong way, boycott the school. Start a petition now of parents in this school district who will not send their kids to school until this is resolved.

Find out when the per pupil funding date is final for the school year. (In Colorado, it's October first, meaning any kid not enrolled by that date isn't funded. So a kid that enrolls after that date has to be accepted at his public school, but the school gets no state funding for him. If this is how VA is, you can really damage them.) If they get daily funding, everyday a kid is out there is no money. Multiply that by the number of kids who will boycott. Hit them in the pocketbook. Let them know and make it stick.

Set up a contingency plan of what to do with the kids whose parents both work. Maybe contact employers and warn them that some in their work force will be needing vacation or personal time because of the district. Put pressure on the school board. Start calling for vouchers. Let Fairfax be the education shot heard round the world.

If God has no place in our schools, then neither does Heather, her two mommies, or Bruce the Leather-Clad Swinger.

Or our children. Abandon the government schools to the liberals. Home school or private school your children. Our (conservative) children will be far better educated and far more likely to reproduce the next generation than the liberals spawn. This is a war for our future. We can't let the liberals corrupt our kids.

Any exposure of children to homosexual behavior is child abuse

Soon you will not be able to discriminate against child molesters in public schools.

Robert Rigby, a special education teacher at Hayfield Secondary School and co-chairman of the local Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)

A male member of GLSEN that teach special-ed students? Does this sound suspicious to anyone besides me?

I think he is a democrat, but a pretty nice guy.

If he's a democrat he's either intolerably stupid or inherently evil. Let's hope he's just stupid.

How many kids attend these schools? They have got a huge budget of 1.6 Billion dollars.

I still say boycott them.

"Parents and pro-family groups also complain that Fairfax school libraries contain books that depict homosexuality only in a non-critical light and that the testimony of people who left the homosexual lifestyle is not allowed in school board debates on anti-discrimination."

If the Fairfax school libraries contain the usual books from GLSEN's recommended reading lists, the books will not only "depict homosexuality only in a non-critical light," but will teach children about topics such as anal sex, as documented in the thread GLSEN Encourages Teens In Anal SEX "Don't give up."

Well BufordP that's one way of getting out of writting an after action report. Having arrived late, parking was impossible and no time for the devil to appear.

For Robert E. Frye to equate the civil rights movement with what GLSEN and their fellow travelers is attempting to do is not only shameful, it's fraudulent. A man can not chose the color of his skin but can chose how he acts. That's why God gave man free will.

I have never seen so many weak sisters elected to office. I'm sure the school board will be inviting Peter Yarrow to a meeting soon so that he can sing his prosodic lament about Rodney King"Why can't we all just get along."

"Soon you will not be able to discriminate against child molesters in public schools."

That's the next step. And they are organizing for the fight:

Some quotes from the The Pedophilia/Pedophile Education Web Site Mirror:

"Pedophilia is a sexual-orientation, like heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality, etc..."

"Free speech right must be held up, but sadly there are people too ignorant to see past their hate and who endorse the idea of us being banned from the web... Free web page sites like Geocities have already responded to the pressure of these Fascists by shutting down websites advocating "boy love", while hypocritically leaving up gay-lesbian homepages, and even proudly listing them as members of the community!..."

"The bottom line is pedophiles must no longer be victims of hate-crimes and censorship for their beliefs. We must unite and stand against intolerance until we are accepted like gays are...

"It is time for a new beginning. Pedophiles should be active in the community to educate the masses on this lifestyle. This is currently very hard to do, but it has to happen sometime. Hopefully, pedophiles will be able to personally inform children inside elementary schools about pedophiles & who they REALLY are. We need classes for this purpose where pedophiles show kids in school that we are not child molesters. We can teach them the truth that other misguided adults will not reveal..."


Notice the similarities between the Pedophile Agenda and the Homosexual Agenda? Parents need to be aware that many homosexuals are pedophiles.

There are more quotes posted in reply #14 in the thread An UPDATE for "Womens Auxillary of NAMBLA"

In May 2001, the School Board added sexual orientation to the harassment policy in the student handbook.

I am curious: does it include EVERY sexual orientation or only some? If the later, which ones and who is making the decision?

To be honest with you I can't remember if I yelled at them to sit down or not. But I was definitely booing big time.

We were sitting in the center back row of the center section. From left to right was Ligeia, JVB, me, and Bharni. I was wearing a black FreeRepublic polo shirt and dark green slacks. Ann Coulter's evil twin sister was sitting in front of me.
