Teacher: I can’t teach about homosexuality in schools? “Give Me A Break!”
In a teacher’s own words! Can there be any question what will happen in our schools? Don’t let it happen! Get involved! and then Vote Yes on 1!
— Firefly Dove
See this from Stand for Marriage Maine:
National Public Radio interviewed Deb Allen, a Massachusetts sex education teacher, on the topic of how some teachers have responded to the teaching of sex education following the legalization of gay marriage in Massachusetts. The content is chilling and should be a wake up call to all those who believe our opponents lies that gay marriage won’t be taught in Maine simply because it is not expressly required in LD 1020.
The NPR reporter tells listeners that when Massachusetts legalized gay marriage, homosexual activists went right to work developing a, “gay friendly curriculum for kindergarten and up.” The reporter notes that Allen “says the debate around gay marriage is prompting kids to ask a lot more questions like what is gay sex which Allen answers thoroughly and explicitly with a chart.” But the most alarming quote in our ad is from Ms. Allen herself:
“I know that, OK, this is legal now. If somebody wants to challenge me I say give me a break.” — Deb Allen, Teacher
The ad actually does not tell the full extent that this teacher instructs 8th graders on gay sex. The news story shockingly reveals that students learn in detail about various ways lesbians engage in sex.

We entrust our young children to teachers every day that we send them to school. But because marriage has always been understood as being between a man and a woman, we have not had to worry about a trusted teacher teaching our sons and daughters about a new version of marriage and all that it entails. Yet all of that could change, as it has in other states, if we do not prevail on November 3rd.
Please help us get the word to Mainers that there are real consequences if Question 1 fails. We have been working hard to explain to Mainers that there are significant, negative consequences to legalizing same-sex marriage that reach far beyond the boundaries of the two people who simply want to “marry”. We have laid bare the fact that legal scholars from across the country including those who support gay marriage predict a new flood of lawsuits against individuals, small businesses and religious organizations who may conscientiously object to providing their services to gay couples. We have shown proof that in other states where gay marriage is legal, it is taught to young children in school. We have made it abundantly clear that such instruction is, in fact, a part of public school curriculum. We have further established and the state Department of Education is on record agreeing with us that there is absolutely nothing in LD 1020 that prevents such instruction from taking place.
Time is of the essence to make sure that all Mainers know the very real, very serious, and very negative consequences to society should Question 1 fail on November 3rd. We are counting on your continued support.

“Everything to Do With Schools” Ad Tells Story of Homosexual Marriage Being Taught to Seven Year Old Children In Massachusetts
Portland, ME – Stand For Marriage Maine, the committee urging Mainers to vote Yes on Question 1, today announced a statewide television ad that features a Massachusetts couple whose seven year old son was exposed to classroom instruction on homosexual marriage. Gay marriage is legal in Massachusetts.
“This powerful new ad clearly demonstrates to Mainers one of the many consequences that we will have to deal with if homosexual marriage is legalized,” said Marc Mutty, Chairman of Stand For Marriage Maine. “Our opponents want to pretend that because LD 1020, the legislation that would take effect if Question 1 fails, doesn’t specifically mention education in the text of the statute that it won’t have any impact on school children. This is what parents in Massachusetts thought as well. But it did, and our ad introduces Mainers to the reality of what we can expect unless voters adopt Question 1.”
The ad, “Everything To Do With Schools,” is a direct response to claims by the No on 1 campaign that Question 1, “has nothing to do with schools or education.” (See Jesse Connolly quote in the Kennebec Journal Morning Sentinel, September 16, 2009.) It features an interview with Robb and Robin Wirthlin whose seven-year old son was read the book “King and King” in class by his teacher in his Lexington, MA public school. This book is about a homosexual prince who marries another prince and the two go on to rule the kingdom happily ever after.
In the ad, Robin Wirthlin says:
“After Massachusetts legalized gay marriage, our son came home and told us the school taught him that boys can marry other boys. He’s in second grade. We tried to stop public schools from teaching children about gay marriage but the courts said we had no right to object or to pull him out of class.”
The Wirthin’s were plaintiffs in the federal court case Parker v. Hurley where the United States First District Court of Appeal, whose jurisdiction includes Maine, ruled that parents have no right to notice when gay marriage instruction will be taught, nor do they have the right to opt-out their children from this instruction.
“If Question 1 fails, Maine’s marriage laws will be changed so that marriage is no longer between a man and a woman, as it has been since Maine became a state, but instead will be between any two eligible people,” Mutty said. “Just as happened in Massachusetts, there will be a strong push to include this new understanding of ‘marriage’ in our public school curriculum. Under the reasoning of the Parker decision, whenever marriage is discussed in Maine schools, participation in this instruction will be mandatory, whether parents like it or not.”

“Youth Pride” Parade: Getting kids to publicly act out homosexuality
Ten years ago the chant was “We’re here, we’re queer, we’re coming after your children… ” Now they’ve got the children and the chant is, “We’re here, we’re queer, get used to it…”
Courtesy of the public education system and GLSEN. All tax funded, paid for on your dollar. Listen up and take notice for the states who just approved gay marriage: you’re one step closer to having this be an integral part of your child’s education.

The homosexual “youth pride” parade is an insidious tool for homosexual activists to reinforce a “gay” or “transgender” identity in the minds of vulnerable kids. A constant theme throughout the year has been persuading kids to “come out” as homosexual, adopt the homosexual identity they were “meant” to have. In the parade, the activists get them yelling and screaming, chanting homosexual slogans such as “We’re here, we’re queer, get used to it.” They encourage the kids to proudly and publicly display their homosexuality. (This year, a transgender chant was also heard: “What do we want? Trans rights! When do we want ’em? Now!”)
The parade goes from the Boston Common past the State House – where they can flaunt their “gayness” at the symbol of politicians and taxpayers – and then back around the block to the Common for more entertainment.

The Commission made sure that high school “gay clubs” came from across the state.
The kids screaming, chanting, and proclaiming their “gayness” is chilling.
Radical sexual propaganda affects the most vulnerable
Already troubled kids are the ones most harmed by their messages.

Acting out their “gay” identies
Kids (below) using the excitement of public parade to show the world how they’ve “come out” as homosexual, thanks to hardcore activists in the schools. This is very sad to see.
This is what YOUR state, YOUR politicians, and YOUR tax money is doing to our children.
