As a bit of background, some parents arranged for some students to meet to their well-loved teacher after her wedding to her same-sex partner on the courthouse steps after the wedding.
The yes on Prop 8 people now have pictures of the children at the wedding up on commercials, without permission of the parents, who are horrified, or the owner of the tape, the San Francisco Chronicle, I believe. The point of the commercial seems to be that passage of prop 8 may require your loverly son or daughter may be forced to be exposed to such horrors themselves.
Yet again I've got the vapors. Children weren't required to go, the event wasn't even arranged by the school, the problem seems to be that some parents (probably quite a few related to me) find it horrifying for their children to find out that people of the same sex can (for at least awhile) in California, get married. Furthermore, the school was a chartered arts school, the kind created to allow the parents more leeway in the sorts of education their children will be getting. So, I'm guessing here that this school was known to be gay friendly, so a gay teacher would not be a shock to the students or the parents.
All you nervous parents, take your kids out of the public schools and enroll them in strict Chrisitian ones... now that forbid the eating of shellfish, the mixing of linen and cotton, the enforcement of a widow to sleep with her brother-in-law, (levirate marriage) and so forth. Oh, oh, oh, and the killing of unruly sons. Everyone will be happier. Well, maybe not the sons, but it's too late for them
***all rules from the BIble.
Post updated to note that parents, not the school, arranged the outing. Thank you Patrick, from the comments.
