It's not only a family issue, but a freedom of religion issue. I think that the judge is a bigot for not allowing parents to opt their children out of these lessons. They're allowed to opt them out of sex education, but not homosexual education? It makes no sense.
He said that it's because, "People are born that way," but there's no scientific proof of that. In fact, there's more proof that it's more psychological than physical. However, no one ever hears that point of view because the gay community won't allow people to advertise that there are, in fact, ex-gays. They say that trying to change them is psychologically harmful, but there's no scientific proof of that. The American Psychological Association agrees with the gay agenda's point of view. However, there have been scientific studies that have been successful in gay re-orientation. Here are some sites and articles on it:
