School District Apologizes For Showing Pro-Homosexual Film

A Wisconsin school district showed a film to students that not only endorsed the redefinition of marriage to include two people of the same sex, but also maligned people who opposed the ludicrous idea. An excerpt:

The video was selected by the school’s Gay/Straight Alliance and approved by both the club’s advisers and Craig High Principal Dr. Alison Bjoin to be shown as part of the Day of Silence observance on April 11. The Day of Silence is an effort to call attention to harassment and discrimination supposedly faced by LGBT high school students.

A student, whose parents taught him properly on this issue, walked out during the showing. “He was basically horrified by it,” the boy’s father said. His grandmother said she “felt it was very misleading, and I felt it was propaganda.”

The real problem isn’t that school officials showed this film; it’s the atmosphere that encouraged the boldness in the first place. This probably isn’t the first time such a thing has happened. Unchecked permissiveness gives root to these kinds of incidents.

One person interviewed for the story asked why the school didn’t present a response from a Christian point of view. (The superintendent’s apology specifically mentioned the one-sided nature of the presentation.) Can you imagine the uproar had the school showed a film that presented only the Christian side? Atheist groups would have made the story go international and threatened lawsuits citing a separation-of-church-and-state violation. And we’d have heard about it a lot sooner. (The incident happened in April.)

On second thought, they might have done the same even if a Christian film had presented the other side.

The Alliance Defending Freedom, a legal organization that represents Christian interests, issued a statement about the school district’s apology.

“Student indoctrination is inappropriate, especially on an issue as important as marriage. Students and parents deserve better. The district recognized its mistake and deserves to be commended.”

    Our students in public schools get this kind of indoctrination constantly. The agenda of the Left is the same as the Communist Party. They have to destroy our morality, Patriotism, and faith in order to bring down our country. We have been infiltrated at every single level in this country by Communism. If you don't believe what I'm saying, read Cleon Skousen's "The Naked Communist," available here http://www.amazon.com/The-Naked-Communist-Series-

    Read what is being done to your country. It's not too late to do something about it.

      There is no need to show this to children or even adults it doesn't add to the shows.
