Coming Out at School

There's more news from the education front! A California public school district is allowing homosexual school employees to "come out" in front of school children without first obtaining parental permission.

A unanimous resolution allows teachers at the Hayward Unified School District to talk openly about homosexuality or to discuss their homosexual lifestyles with students during class. The district's school board says such action is required under the California Student Safety and Violence Prevention Act of 2000. Teachers are also allowed to include homosexual figures or role models in class and to read books with homosexual characters in them.

Try that if you're a Christian and want to speak of your faith, or have a different view of homosexuality than the gay activists want taught. You would be fired.

Similar efforts by gay rights activists are taking place in many other states. Now let's see: You have your children and grandchildren in government schools for what reason? I'm Cal Thomas in Washington.
