Not So Fast

The (mostly men) at Concerned Women For America have a very misleading post entitled:

"Parental Rights Case Goes to the U.S. Supreme Court "

Not so fast there , Concerned Women.

If you actually read what they wrote you will see the headline is quite misleading.

Does an elementary school have the right to indoctrinate children in their view of controversial moral issues without the knowledge or consent of parents? That is the issue that the U.S. Supreme Court may decide. Matt Barber, CWA's Policy Director for Cultural Issues, speaks with David Parker, a Lexington, Massachusetts parent, who is petitioning the high court, hoping it will accept his appeal of a First Circuit Court decision on his case. In 2005, Parker was arrested at his son's school following a classroom lesson on same-sex marriage using the book King & King. The principal at Esterbrook Elementary School in Lexington defended the King & King lesson and denied parents the right to be informed about it and to opt their kids out.

While I am not a lawyer, I'll go out on a limb here and call bullshit.

The US Supreme Court is not going to hear this case. There are no circuit spits and there are no Federal Issues.

why that would mean they're liars.

So, in turn, if they're lying, then they're bearing false witness against their neightbor?


I think this Concerned Woman Ms. Barber should check himself before he carries on about a childrens book that "does not bear false witness".
