We came to ask this question because of a disturbing story out of Texas where a 14 year old student was punished by a teacher for stating to a friend that he opposed homosexual behavior. We wondered how often that or similar things are being repeated.
It appears that the majority of our readers and their children have had to deal with similar affronts. The good news is that the teacher in Texas has been placed on administrative leave for his actions and the school district is doing a full investigation. Let’s hope that the teacher is held accountable for his actions and that a message is clearly sent to all that such bullying by teachers and leaders will not be tolerated.
If your student is experiencing such overt oppression by a school teacher or administration, it is critical that you not allow these episodes to go unanswered. There are legal groups that are able and will step in to give you counsel and legal aid; groups such as Alliance Defense Fund and Liberty Counsel. If you live in California, there is the Pacific Justice Institute as well.
The only way to stop this encroachment of homosexual advocates and activists upon free speech and religious freedoms is to stand up and speak out. Please have a discussion with your children and make them aware that they do have options and that they do not have to remain a victim of other people’s intolerance.
