A group of teachers in San Leandro High School (California) are refusing to display posters promoting gay diversity.
The posters were designed by the school's Gay-Straight Alliance and show a rainbow flag and bear the words “This is a safe place to be who you are.”
The “educators” are hiding behind the illusion that the posters violate their religious beliefs. Since when is making school safe for children in conflict with any religion? Did I miss the encyclical declaring bullying a sanctified activity?
Here's a breath of fresh air from the school district
“This is not about religion, sex or a belief system,'' district Superintendent Christine Lim told the San Francisco Chronicle.
“This is about educators making sure our schools are safe for our children, regardless of their sexual orientation,” said Lim, who sponsored the poster measure.
I can only imagine what these edu-bigots have overlooked in the way of gay bullying in their classrooms. Or gender bullying. Only a truly ignorant rube would object to creating safe spaces for all kids in which to learn.
How long til the AFA and the Thomas More Center weigh in on this?
