First off how do you know there Christian Martha? Muslims also do not support homosexuality.

I support both Homosexuals and Hetrosexuals. I have no hate toward both.

Ok...

Well then how do you support people who teach their children that certain people aren't "normal", or they're an "abomination", or wrong, etc?

Why should I hate anyone?? Isn't that what Jesus said?? Plus anyone can say something bad about other people too.

it seems that some parents need more education than their kids.

Kids need to be taught that there are countless others in this world who aren't like them-they are a different color, they are poor, they are handicapped, they are a different religion, they are atheists, on and on and on. Kids need to learn how to respect those differences (and can't without learning about them in my opinion) regardless of the fact that their parents have moral issues with it. Whether or not the parents believe being gay is a choice, the fact remains that the kids have to live in this world at some point outside of the sphere of their parents' influence and will have to live and work with gay people. It can be much easier if they learn how to early on. I have found that if you respect the diverse lives of others, they are more inclined to respect you(not always but most of the time).

For a parent to believe that the schools are trying to "indoctrinate" their children by using an age appropriate way of teaching that gay people exist-well to me that indicates a certain level of paranoia that isn't realistic. Do the same parents get riled up over Romeo And Juliet? Is that a form of heterosexual "indoctrination"?

Great post MrsSpringsteen, it's too bad so many parents haven't figured this out.

why is the existence of gay people any different than the existence of african-americans, single parents, interracial children, eskimos, australians, MENSA members, taxadermists, single fathers, only children, half-Jewish half-Hindu children, or any other of the infinite varieties, colors, and flavors that make up humankind? why do gay people fall into a different category? why must the existence of gay people be such a delicate topic?

I think most of the people in this world still feel that it is un-natural. Thats is just my opinion on why you asked "why are gay people any different."

the schools could be teaching from one extreme to another on both sides. the teacher him/herself could be teaching in favor or against it. its my right as a parent to discuss this with my child. not the school.

Homosexuality is discussed in the world civilization book I teach from. (ancient world context) Should I omit that section?
