As they kicked off the event Thursday, L.A. school superintendent John Deasy said the effort was necessary to prevent gay students from being bullied. In a statement to the L.A. Times, Deasy said "We want all of our youth and staff to know that it is safe to be you (homosexual) in LAUSD."
According to the Daily Caller, "The front sides of the badges have the word 'ally' written on them in several different languages, which will help teachers celebrate the fabulousness of gay students, gay fellow teachers, and other gays, whose gayness automatically merits universal applause and celebration. Allies are straight supporters of gay people and gay marriage.
Deasy takes the normal liberal chant of "tolerance" even further as he told CBS News that he wanted the school staff to be not just tolerant, but accepting. "It is safe to be you. We are proud of who you are,” he said. “Our campuses don’t want tolerance, we want acceptance."
I wonder if LA schools are just as "tolerant" or "accepting" of those who deem homosexual behavior wicked and sinful? What if a teacher (or student) chose to wear a pro-family or pro-marriage badge? Would Deasy feel just as proud of such free-speech?
How many times does it have to be said that the same-sex marriage movement is not simply about marriage? (And for that matter, neither are anti-bullying campaigns just about bullying.) This is about sex and about legitimizing, through the American judicial system, a sexual lifestyle that the Bible deems, and many Americans find, immoral.
Whether or not same-sex marriage is the law of the land, government school systems that are run by liberals will take every opportunity to push the pro-homosexual agenda. Thus, children all across America that are cursed by being trapped in these liberal hell-holes will not only be taught that two mommies or two daddies (why limit it to two?) are okay, but that homosexual activity is normal and to be celebrated.
Of course, this is what happens when we are governed by Sodomites.
