"Anti-Bullying" is the call word

The previous post about labeling children in the UK is being played out in the US under the disguise of "Anti-bullying" initiatives.

LA Schools To Teach LGBT Curriculum In Anti-Bullying Effort

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Students in the Los Angeles Unified school district may soon be taught “age-appropriate” curriculum promoting positive images of homosexuals and their contributions to society.

KNX 1070′s Claudia Peschiutta reports the district approved an anti-bullying program aimed at reducing harassment at school for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students.

The resolution approved on Tuesday directs officials to come up with an implementation plan within 90 days, the Associated Press reported.....
The "thought police" are coming to a community near you ... and evidently pretty soon.

What's wrong with teaching children not to bully gay or transgender people?
Do you believe that being in the LGBT community is a valid reason to be a target for homophobic bullies?

Hello Anonymous, thanks again for stopping by. :-)

Children should be taught not to bully anyone.

There is no need to specify a particular group of people, that only highlights the group and causes more antagonism toward the highlighted group. It is actually counter productive.

God Bless!

Just like anti-racism or -sexism education makes it harder for women or other races, right?
If you want to look out for the well-being of gay people, you can start by asking fellow Christians not to oppose gays' rights at every turn.

On a side note, Don't Ask Don't Tell has been officially repealed now. What was (or still is) your position on that policy?

"Don't Ask, Don't Tell"?

I really don't know what the purpose of it was to begin with? I served 4 years in the Marine Corp, did a tour in Vietnam, I am a combat veteran. I served with men that were pretty much openly gay. We didn't have any problems. Of course that was just my personal experience. I guess back then it was more "leave other service members alone and you won't have a problem."

There is a difference between being a woman or being of a different race than teaching children about sexual preference, don't you think? Racial groups and gender groups are not quite the same thing as sexual preference and choices.

When did the government decide that it was the government's right to teach children about sexual issues? Very soon, in the context of a classroom, a teacher can become a bully in forcing an issue such as sexual preference on children.

"You either see it our way or you are homophobic."

Sounds sort of like labeling and abuse of children to me.

There are plenty of churches that are very open to the gay community. We do still have freedom of religion. If churches want to be gay inclusive then more power to them. If churches choose to teach that the gay life style is not scriptural, would you suggest that the government step in and force them to either stop their teaching or close their doors? I don't think you would choose that.
