    What happened in this Santa Barbara school is astounding! 8th graders were forced to attend a presentation over a period of 3 days from a pro-homosexual group. One student asked about Prop. 8 and the speaker said that parents who voted for that were "prejudiced."

    The presenters also said that if one has a close relationship with someone of the same sex (as in having a girlfriend), this could mean you are gay!

    Quite a few parents, when they found out about it, were outraged and rightly so. They should have been informed and allowed to opt out their child.

    Disgusting. I expect this from unbelievers. Not to derail your thread, but I am seeing similar garbage from the seek-senstive/purpose-driven crowd. One church group was thrown out of a school because their message was too lewd.

    Indeed! Especially since the disctrict has an express policy of requiring parental consent for workshops such as these. This school obviously had disregard for the disctrict's policies on the matter. Parents should know not only their school's policies, but also their dictrict's policies.
    Do you by chance have a link to that? I'm dying to read the details on that!

    More than an apology is necessary. The teacher should face discipline.

    apologies, apologies....yeah, well, what good are they. Harm's done.

    Kinda like a prosecution inserting an insinuating untruth and then the judge saying "jury will disregard"....harm's done...
