My son came home today to tell me that on Monday the school will be having a discussion circle on why it's okay to be a homosexual. I was very proud at myself that I didn't move with any sudden emotional impulse and call the principal with a blast. I thought very calmly about this and sat down very composed and rang her to say that I longed for the days when kids went to school to learn reading, writing and arithmetic.
She told me that they were doing this because they found so many of the students were saying things which were incredibly homophobic and that they needed to learn respect. Ah! There's that word.
Well I told her that I do not teach my kids to hate anyone nor to do violence to someone regardless of their personal morals, but they are kids. I don't want my son nor my daughter to have to fulfill someone's agenda in learning about what some people do in the privacy of their own personal places. It's none of their business and it's none of mine. I do not go around discussing my own personal heterosexual life.
I do not want my children to have to forego getting an education while the human rights commission and the education system force their agendas down their throats.
The principal of course did not agree with me and said that it wasn't going to get that detailed into things. How can't you get into the 'in's and out's' (no pun) of such a subject without having to explain what it is really about?
What makes me even more upset is that the school never bothered to send a notice home to say that they were going to bring in an 'expert' in to discuss this moral issue with the children.
How do they process this? I don't think they care as long as they can promote their agenda.
I certainly don't think that I should have to take a day off of work in order to babysit my children because their school wants to push an agenda and make everyone conform to Canada's rights and freedoms. What about my rights?
