Is your child breathing and alive? If so, then he or she is being "indoctrinated" every day. A simple fact of life.


But not taught that homosexuality should be accepted.. Keep your sexual perversions out of public schools.
Although I would be supportive of an anti-bullying campaign, I don't think encouraging students to be mute during a full day of classes is the right thing.

Wear a ribbon, a t-shirt, a button but don't encourage them to remain mute during class while they should be participating and learning.

Accepting is not the same as normal. Please give me another example of normal constituting 5% of a population.
Not to worry, Sheffield City Schools are on spring break this week. I do recall them doing it last year and my kids told me that no child was forced to remain quite, it is left up to each child to decide if they want to support this project.My kids participated because we believe in the saying, "hate the sin..not the sinner". No one has the right to commit acts of violence against another because of the beliefs or lifestyles.

Well, is more like 10%. You could say that black people (who also constitute 10% of the population overall) are also abnormal. But to say so would be ludicrous.

ALL mammals on earth have homosexual constituents. Homosexuality cannot be spread from one to another via indoctrination. Example: Could you "choose" to trade your heterosexuality for homo? I sure could not. Just not my cup of tea. For for a large segment of our population it is perfectly normal.

Our children SHOULD be taught that is is normal and be accepting of it because that is a reality.

As far as I know, those practices to not happen between two consenting adults and would most definitely be considered abnormal.

What happens between two consenting adults is no one's business, sir. Shall we look into your sexual practices? Anything "abnormal" at all in what you do? If not, perhaps you need to get out a little more?

If homosexuality was the norm, the human population would cease to exist over time. Also, comparing skin color to sexual orientation is like comparing apples to oranges. Please thank your parents for not being homosexual so you try to enlighten us on how homosexuality is normal.

My wife and I are quite content, thank you, Sir. I will say, however, that there are times when my wife makes me feel like I'm '19 again' and leave it at that! Big Grin

Okay, stupid post of the year goes to the above.

Parents are not the reason people are gay. How moronic. I'm convinced being gay is a trait you are born with and the more you try to hide it, the more miserable you'll be. Of course, listening to stupid people can also make you pretty miserable.

Not true. Evolutionary theory supports the fact that homosexuals are a benefit to the species.


Please explain to me how a pair of males or females could reproduce if they were the last people in the world. Being a benefit to a species is different from having the ability to reproduce. I really hope you are smarter than taht.

So only people who can reproduce are worthy in society?

If your parents were gay they wouldn't have procreated and, thus, you wouldn't be here. I meant nothing about the offspring being gay due to parents.

As for your comment about parents not being the reason people are gay. Why then would you say that it is a trait? If it's a trait, it's genetic. Guess what, that means it's inherited from your PARENTS!!! That might have been the most moronic statement.

No, but there wouldn't be a society if everyone was homosexual. Why is it that a 10 year old can understand how a baby is made, but a homosexual has no clue how they here.

Why do you say that? I could care less if you are gay or straight. I am just trying to point out to sofa king that if homosexuality was the norm, people would evetually cease to exist.

And I'm trying to point out to you that "majority" does not equate to "normal."

Acne is normal although only 30% of the population is adversely affected by it. Again, black people only comprise 10% of the S population - about the same as homosexuality. Are black people abnormal? Of course not.


I have neither the will or desire to cite everything you need to know to not sound unenlightened about the facts concerning homosexuality. You are perfectly capable of doing that yourself but only if you can temporarily put away your prejudice.

What tw consenting adults do behind closed doors is no one's business. It is everyone's business when you discriminate or spread hatred for people that are different from you for NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN.

You are danged right kids should be taught not to hate people who are born different.
Touche. Now their little ones can learn about the Rapture, have no legal requirement for fire alarms or drills or even be taught in the English language or take a single math class or even history. Read up on the differences in what constitutes a "Public" a "Private" and a "Religious" School in Alabama. I was frankly shocked when I was doing research a few years ago in the Education Library at UA. Shocked! And I am not easily shocked. There are basically no requirements on home or religious schools, no accreditation, no fire drills required, not even a GED required to teach fancy book learning.

I've seen the kids from the seg academies down in South Alabama posing as "religious schools" and what they turn out. They have no concept of basic writing skills as a rule, have horrid grammar such as superfluous apostrophes to form plurals and lacking apostrophes when making a regular possessive. They cannot even make subject and verb agree in number many times. One thought Israel was in Europe and another Canada an island. One did not know that there was not a Davidic Dynasty King of Israel. Two or three were shocked in one class of 20 that Egypt was in Africa and that Israel touched Africa at the Sinai.

Now of course there are exceptions. But as a generality, their performance was subpar in any writing exercise that required them to use sources and write a formal typed essay of two pages. Shoot, the best student I had was from the Winston County public schools! He wrote better than I did after 4 years of college and 3 of grad school and he a freshman!
If you were to examine the purpose for home schooling, you might find that the parents have reasons that have nothing to do with academia. I remain of the opinion that public schools' educational process is sound and prepares the student. The big change has been the attitude of the student..entertainment from the womb has made the teaching of nouns and verbs intensely boring ... only the disciplined student survives.
The use of the video game and television as after school educational device is a horrid American invention. It is the parents' fault that they do not insist that their children be well read and to study, not the kids, they are only kids and will do as little as possible very often, why is that not the very definition of childhood?

Some homeschool because their kids are too advanced for public school without putting them in a grade for which they are emotionally unprepared. Some, obviously, do a great job at it. Most do not. I done seed it first hand like. I done done fancy book learnin' research on this heah topic, got so disgusted I dumped it as fast as I could and begged for another seminar paper topic.
