What really happened in Massachusetts

A few people have commented about the story mentioned in my previous blog about the parents who objected to what was being taught there kids. Here is their story.

I really have never understood this subject, and this video has made me baffled.

1. It obviously relies on tugging at the heart strings.
2. Things aren't presented fairly. I have trouble believing that man got arrested for simply standing up for his opinion. I also would like to read what this book really says... I am willing to bet that in no where in it it states that some kids have "gay" or "homosexual" parents. It's probably described in a different manner.
3. We don't live in a society with cookie-cutter families. Some kids have single parents... more and more are going to have parents of the same-sex, whether or not Prop 8 passes. Kids can't help what kind of family they are born into... I think it is perfectly fine to describe different kinds of families for obvious reasons.

I do agree that right now, parents should have the right to opt out of such discussions, but I don't think it should be taken away completely. Kids who are born in these alternative families have a right to hear about what their family consists of as well.
