What comes after same-sex marriage? Part 5


Part 5. What comes after same-sex marriage? You only have to look to the countries that have already redefined the institution to get an idea.

Two years after marriage was redefined in Massachusetts, David Parker’s son brought home a book from his kindergarten classroom. The book was designed to celebrated and normalised homosexuality and same-sex marriages. The following year, Rob and Robin Wirthlin had a similar experience when their seven year old son, and his class, were read a book about the marriage of two homosexual characters.

 

The parents requested prior notification and the opportunity to opt out when the subject of sexuality was being discussed. Their request was rejected. The school later had Parker arrested after he refused to leave a meeting with the principal and curriculum director.

In 2006 Parker and other concerned parents filed a civil rights lawsuit against the school, which a Federal District Judge dismissed. According to the judge, teaching six and seven year old children about homosexuality helps to make them better citizens of a diverse society.

The judge gave them three options: remove their children from public schools, home school, or try to elect a new school board.
