Religious exemptions won’t protect our children
To the Editor:
Some of the most horrific consequences of same-sex marriage being passed in Massachusetts have been the effects in their public schools.
Massachusetts father David Parker tried to opt his five-year-old kindergartener son out of his class where a book seeking to normalize same-sex “marriage” and homosexual romance in the minds of very young children, “King and King,” was being promoted. The school not only refused this father’s request but also ended up having him arrested.
David Parker said in an interview with Family Research Council: “One of the reasons they did is they said, ‘Same sex “marriage” is legal in Massachusetts, therefore we can broach it any time with your child.’” And when they are putting forward that it’s equal, they’re putting forward that it’s a morally equal alternative and affirming it in the minds of children. Now these are young, impressionable children, and they know very well that there are many parents that do not hold these beliefs. But irrespective of that, in an intolerant manner, and in an aggressive manner, they are putting forward that we as parents do not even have the right to know what they are saying to our children.
Look for the same to happen here in Rhode Island if the Senate Judiciary Committee votes to send the same-sex marriage bill out of committee and onto the Senate floor. No amount of religious exemption protections will be able to protect our children from this type of indoctrination in our public schools.
