Mandatory Homosexual Indoctrination in Grade School Survives after Supreme Court Turns Down Case

By Kathleen Gilbert LEXINGTON, MA, October 8, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - After mounting a ferocious battle to preserve traditional marriage values, David Parker could only watch helplessly as the United States Supreme Court left intact a lower court ruling that allowed Massachusetts schools to…

Yet another reason to homeschool. :eek:

And Alita, Thomas, Roberts and Scalia are considered good Catholics why?

Queston: Is this related to the Freedom of Choice Act? Which I believe is a national issue???

I received a request for money to fight “choice” legislation, but I didn’t respond because there was no senate or house bill number given. I wrote back for concrete information but so far have not heard from this organization.

My friends and I have done letter writing and calling to our state representatives about a really bad bill on abortion rights and a lot of scary stuff concerning health care people and school education. But we are very precise and clear about what bill we oppose, i.e., giving the bill number and just as important, the sponsor’s names.

I’ve heard something on the news about the president elect’s commitment ??? to planned parenthood. But you know how sound bites are. Too fast and often too wrong.

Bottom line is that I’m looking for specific information… This old lady needs to catch up!

This issue is not related to the Freedom of Choice Act. FOCA is a bill that would sweep away all the legal restrictions on abortion: the federal government could spend tax dollars on abortion here and abroad; no more parental consent, etc. Everything, past, present, and future, federal, state, and local, would be gone.

Basically, we have the freedom of choice to kill our children with the government’s approval, but not to raise them as we see fit. The government already thinks that our money is their money; now it looks like they also think that our children are their children.

Probably best not to give money to people who write to you unless they are an organization you know. The law allows “charities” to keep up to 90% of what they take in for expenses, and there are also people who raise money for charities who keep a huge amount of the money. Ask the pro-life people in your parish: they will probably be able to steer you to some good groups.

Very good: that can be more effective than giving money :slight_smile:

Look in the politics 2008 forum here to find out a lot about Obama’s stance. Basically, he has not supported one single bill that restricts abortion in any way, and he worked and voted against a bill to provide medical care for babies who survived abortion (look up Jill Stanek). I don’t know if you will have to go back to some older posts, but it’s all in Politics 2008.

And pass along that info to your friends!

Look up (google works well) Gianna Jessen. She survived an abortion attempt, but if the doctor had been present he could legally have suffocated the child after birth because it was a failed medical procedure. Barrack Obama has the most liberal stance on abortion of any president ever elected.

Homeschooling may soon be the only option left if one wishes to avoid secularist indoctrination.

What is this secularist indoctrination you speak of? The article talks about Lexington, which is an “out there” town not so far from where I live. I wouldn’t call this secularist indoctrination any more than I would call this expected.

For updated info about current secularist indoctrination (which legitimizes Lexington, white collar theft, abortion, the loss of retirement funds, pornography, cheating in school, etc.) one would have to give up an hour or two of time.

If one has the time, one must check out every link connected with

www.whybelieveinagod.org

This means one has to read beyond the first couple of paragraphs of all the speeches, fact sheets, etc. provided by the American Humanist Association.

Then, one has to connect the dots.

Keep reading. Sure, this is only happening here and there *now, *but the fact that it is happening in Lexington shows that what started in San Francisco is indeed spreading.

It’s no more indoctrination than anything we learn in any type of school, public, private, or home. You have a bunch of groups that believe something is right. They go on and teach what they believe is right. There will always be conflict.

There is an objective good and objective evil. Teaching objective evil as a good or as an acceptable norm distorts consciences. Distorting consciences causes violence, misery, death and disorder, i.e. sin.

While you dither about everybody being able to have any viewpoint, the young are not being cared for. There is no such thing as a value neutral education. We are not safegaurded from barbarity in the first world. Look to the violence in Greece and a few years ago in France. Look to the dysfunction and misery caused by the sexual revolution, the loss of life the immeasurable loss of peace, the cheapening of the value of life, the acceptance of abortion.

Education is not neutral. Values are not neutral. What one believes matters most profoundly and allowing any view that does not follow truth to have the bully pulpit in the classroom spreads misery.

We need to defend objective truth within society and law more strongly, more cleverly and use natural law arguments.
