Oh I can tell the difference. The mere presence of the Bible in public school sends people running scared these days.

Oh, THAT's the difference between religion and homosexuality? I guess a better question is why I expect more from a Texan.


You still didn't answer the questions as to how merely mentioning homosexuality constitutes pushing an agenda.

Both are social issues, controversial social issues into today's society.

Each side wants to push "their agenda" on kids in school.
To hell with academics..social issues are more important.

The difference being , I have not seen or heard of any of those you mentioned trying to push their agenda of normalizing on society . Havent seen any organized effort by rapist or child molesters fighting for equal rights. Adulter's fighting to be accepted as just another loving relationship.

Come to think of it , i believe that there are more parallels with the two forms of myths.
This comment makes me think a little religious history in public schools might not be such a bad idea.

sorry to bust your bubble.

your religion teaches hate, and that wont be tolerated.
My religion? Hate to break it to you, but I'm aetheist. That said, I worry that there are so many people out there who cannot connect the dots between world faiths. A little comparative religion in conjunction with world history could go a long way toward mitigating ignorance.

My brother used to think like you. He's a PHD in Physics. These days, they are finding more and more evidence that God does in fact exist. If you choose to believe that or not...your decision.

But my brother is once again a devout Catholic because of what he has learned from science.
I believe in god, but that line is BS

It's obvious most people have their own strong feelings surround LGBT..However, I was under the assumption the educations was suppose to EDUCATE..meaning preparing students for the "World" at large..How would it be possible to shield students from how society has evolved in acceptance of alternatives that are really out there? These folk could be next door neighbour ...or your child..or your husband..or your closest friend!

No point really to hide since these kids live beyond the schoolroom boundaries everyday...may even have a parent who is LGBT or an uncle or any other family member...So how does not EDUCATING help exactly??

They're not going to answer the question. The answer contradicts their views, and they know it, so they'll just do what they've been doing the entire thread. Changing the subject to something else.

If bullying really is at the center of this controversy, let me point out that teachers have been dealing issues of classroom bullying since...well...forever. It's never been just about the readin', writin', and 'rithmetic. A significant part of early education is about helping children to develop social skills.

For comparison purposes, maybe someone could quote a passage from that homosexual book.


How about we compare things that really did happen with things that really did happen.
