Of COURSE We're Not Teaching Gay Marriage...

... only societal norms!

I don't care what anyone else says, Kindergarteners are simply too young to deal with concepts like gay, lesbian, and transgender issues.

Even Obama has claimed that his Kindergarten sex ed idea would just be anti-abuse awareness. But that's not what gay-rights advocates are practicing ALREADY.

Just teaching, "be nice to people," or "don't call names," should suffice. But in California, a teacher with an agenda can do a lot more... and watch what the school rep says, versus what the actual school policy says in that video.

One more reason I don't want my kid in public school.

The passing of Prop 8 gives me hope that Idaho will be spared this conflict for at least a little while. But I know that we will not be immune for very long, and I am pondering the future of my own children' s education.

For a post-Halloween scare, Google "Obama Supports Public Depravity." (This often occurs in Pelosi's district, and the mayor tells the cops to NOT arrest anyone exercising the illegal, kinky, child-abusing "rights" Obama supports that are flaunted in public in front of little children!) After recovering, Yahoo "God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up" and "Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right." See all of this before the Creator responds with quakes, violent storms, and other bad news.

(Obama, Pelosi and their public-porn-protecting collaborators did not approve of this message!)

Wow, Irv... I have to admit I'm a little afraid to Google anything that resembles "indecency"... never know what might turn up! ;-)

But I did trip through South Beach in Miami one summer night on a business trip, which was... well, trippy. No "activities," (at least outdoors, and I tried not to look too closely at anything human, so I'm really not the best source), but I had never realized that people actually dress like Paris Hilton! Like I said, I spent a lot of time trying to avert my eyes, LOL...

We need to be very aware of the things we expose our kids to, for sure!

Kannie- do you homeschool?

kannie said...

Carissa - not yet (officially - Kiddo's two - but I do try to teach him as the days go by); I'm planning on it, though, because I'm not very happy with what I've seen of the public system (everywhere I've lived). Hubby, on the other hand, thinks we should send him and just "correct" what he's learning when he gets home... we'll have to see what works out, because while I understand that it doesn't work for everyone, I feel really strongly about making sure he learns some things and *doesn't* learn others - at least until an appropriate time and situation.

I used to think like your hubby, but mine thought like you and he ended up convincing me :) It is quite a journey but we love it and our kids are very happy so far.

kannie said...

Wow! He must have made a good case to convince you to do it, (any suggestions? ;-), and you are TOTALLY to be commended!!! :-) If Hubby were the one trying to convince me not to send my kids to school and, instead, take "my" entire day teaching them myself... I think it'd take a lot of convincing, LOL! So glad to hear another successful family! :-)

There was a book I read a few years ago that changed the way I looked at education. It is called Revealed Educational Principles & the Public Schools: A look at principle-centered education through the prophets and LDS educational history, by John D. Monnett.

Meridian Magazine did a write-up on it that gives an overview. I'm bad at putting links here or I would. But you can google it. You can borrow my book if you're interested. I'll mail it to you :)

Also, google Hartman Rector Jr. and homeschool. There is an interesting interview done with him by the LDS Home Educators Assn.

(He is an Emeritus, 1st Quorum of the Seventy)

Very cool! I'll have to look those up - maybe they even have 'em at the library here :-). Thanks!!! :-)

I admire those with the energy, strength and courage to homeschool their children. I might lose my mind if I did that with my own children, so I've chosen to send them to public school. I'm very involved with their schooling and make sure I'm aware of what is happening. We discuss what they are learning and what our personal standards are.
And I've lived in very liberal places such as Sweden and now New York. We've been able to navigate tricky questions well. I feel like my kids have a fair handle of what they world thinks about certain issues and our own standards about said issues.
