Help! Help! I'm Being Repressed!
Some families didn't like the fact that a gay couple were the main characters in a children's book. So they sued to get the book removed from the curriculum. And as any rational person would do, the judge told them to get bent:
Federal Judge Mark Wolf ruled on Friday that public schools are "entitled to teach anything that is reasonably related to the goals of preparing students to become engaged and productive citizens in our democracy."
"Diversity is a hallmark of our nation. It is increasingly evident that our diversity includes differences in sexual orientation," he said.
And on what grounds did the parents sue???
The complaint filed against the town of Lexington, about 12 miles west of Boston, had said the school had "begun a process of intentionally indoctrinating very young children to affirm the notion that homosexuality is right and normal in direct denigration of the plaintiffs' deeply held faith."
That's right, the school was violating their right to religious freedom by daring to expose their kids to the real world. Apparently, if you point out the fact that there are gay people in the world and they often fall in love with each other, then you are repressing every religious person who hates gays. No wonder these types of Christians feel so persecuted. They've set themselves up as martyrs, but this time they're nailing themselves to the cross.
