Legalizing gay marriage will lead to it being taught as normative in elementary schools, according to new TV ads in three states where the issue is on the ballot.
The 30-second advertisements in Maine, Maryland and Minnesota all feature a couple, David and Tonia Parker, who live in Massachusetts, where gay marriage is legal.
"After Massachusetts redefined marriage, local schools taught it to children in second grade, including the school our son attended," David Parker says to the camera. "Courts ruled parents have no right to take their children out of class -- or to even be informed when this instruction was going to take place."...
For Nebraskans, and this type of teaching won't happen in Nebraska:
"Only marriage between a man and a woman shall be valid or recognized in Nebraska. The uniting of two persons of the same sex in a civil union, domestic partnership or other similar same-sex relationship shall not be valid or recognized in Nebraska."

What an interesting thought! I would lean towards obeying the law regarding public schools and then undoing the harm they did when the kids got home. But, if my conscience told me it was a "sin" to send my kids to public schools in and of itself, then I would not do it regardless of the cost.
I am glad my kids are grown up and I don't have to ponder this in a personal sense. Good for you for making this a personal issue, because it is and will likely become more personal in the future.

I agree totally with your comment. Now if we could just get families to adhere to the following; your advice would me so much easier to follow!
Titus 2:3 The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 [To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
I hope this warning moves parents to remove their children from the public schools and to investigate home schooling. There are many resources available for parents to help them as they transition from gov't schools to teaching their children at home.
I won't agree with Denis there are "good" queers. They may be some more or less living with societal legal boundaries, but that doesn't make them good. With that in mind, I would recommend you look over Mr. Prager's article on why queer marriages must be denied -- for the good of society, Why a Good Person Can Vote Against Same-Sex Marriage. Mr. Praeger being either conservative or orthodox Jew should know that both the Old/New Testaments condemn queerness, i.e., The Bible Says Homosexuality is Sin.
I'm sorry but I have a child in second grade currently and I'm sorry but it is my RIGHT if I don't want them lurning this....It should be were a child can be singed out when a parent dose not want there child at a young age consurned with this matter.....We can't bring a Bible into school but this is ok......Hummmmmmm
Here are some good examples of how societal pressures and mores have led to the dilution of Christ‚Äôs church resulting in compromising even the basic principles of biblical morality. Feminism is no longer even argued, but the argument is now with radical feminism; homosexuality is no longer argued, but the bar has been lowered to gay marriage; abortion as de facto murder is seldom noted, but now the bar has been lowered to debating reasons for abortions or for partial birth abortions; the illogical unscientific concept of evolution is largely accepted with the bar being lowered to theistic evolution; divorce is tolerated to the point where there are no consequences either in our pulpits or in our congregations; saving sex for marriage is ridiculed and the bar has been lowered to a level that I can‚Äôt even define and the list could go on and on and on and on ad infinitum. The common thread that runs through this short list of compromises is that when something becomes legal and/or intellectually or morally acceptable to the ‚Äúworld‚ÄĚ, then the church abandons the strict narrow positions of scripture and simply lowers the bar or eliminates the bar altogether.
"After hearing the clip the other woman says, "I'd always kinda been on the fence, but Obama makes it so simple: it's about fairness -- treating everyone equal under the law.""
Alienating Christianity and the Bible is what this is all about. Making sodomite "marriage" legal - is to make the Bible illegal. Satan's course of action is to gain as many of the reprobates to his side and alienate the Bible. The ideology that this is only about discrimination against "innocent" "gay" people who cannot do anything about their lifestyle is growing in force with Obama/Democrat help. Satan has already won battles on this whereby the ignorant reprobate majority sees it as no problem. Even churches like ELCA, Episcopalian, PCUSA are winning for Satan, thereby abandoning Scripture which is observed by non Christians as an escape clause in the law of God. Thus the impetus towards ultimately redefining marriage is gaining direction and force in the nations.
