“Newton case highlights promotion of gay culture in public schools”
Like most mothers, Emer O’Shea did not expect that her daughter would learn about homosexual lifestyles in her third-grade classroom.
But in her Newton public school last year, she did. What happened is a lesson on the need for more parents to find a voice, according to those fighting against the erosion of parental rights.
More and more Christian parents are grappling with this problem nationwide, and especially in Massachusetts, where lawmakers in July quadrupled the 2007 budget to nearly $2 million for school programs aimed at “outreach to” and “support and safety of gay and lesbian students.” Lawmakers also created a permanent Commission for Gay and Lesbian Youth that will oversee how the money is spent and is not subject to the control of any other department.
Here are more details on how that Commission operates. It’s new slogan is “These kids are our kids.” While that can be taken several ways, the most chilling is the sense you hear often from activists: That they must “educate” children over the parents’ objections because they know what’s best for the kids and for society.
