    Listen.

    If you guys want results. You can't teach it to kids.

    Amend it to say " Gay marriage is legal, but it won't be taught to kids" and you have what you want.

    Otherwise forget it.

    They should focus on math, reading, science, writing, creative writing, etc...

    Its one thing to say "Some people decide to marry the same sex. They are people too" vs. saying subtley " Gay marriage is the normal thing to do, you should do it if you want" I wouldn't want to leave that up to the interpretation of a teacher. Just like I wouldn't want the teacher to be interpreting the bible in his/her own way.
    Um, relevance?!?!!?

    *Nothing* about Prop 8 had to do with institutionalizing a new curriculum into California's public school system, NOTHING.

    Also, I get a sneaking suspicion that you understand very little about homosexuality.

    You are heterosexual, aren't you?

    Were you *taught* to get an erection by some hot girl in a provocative pose you find sexually arousing?

    NO, wanna know why?

    Because you are *biologically* heterosexual.

    People who voted yes on Prop 8 are *backwards* *discriminatory* *ignorant* fools who will be scoffed at in future generations to come.

    We, who are in support of same-sex union/marriage are analogous to the abolitionists of pre-civil war America, and you folk who are against same-sex union/marriage are analogous to the confederate south.

    Ugh!!!

    People are so disappointing, we just always have to push someone down, don't we?

    Seriously. It's not as if some kids grow up to be gay or anything.

    Please read what happened in Massachussets. The experimental state junior to California.

    Yet a review of public records filed with the First District Court of Appeal in Boston shows these same organizations who claim our statement is a lie fought to make it true in Massachusetts. Specifically, they fought to ensure that gay marriage be taught in Massachusetts public schools, even over the objection of parents who sought an "opt out" for their children. Gay marriage was legalized by Massachusetts courts in 2003.
