Gay-Marriage Opponents Are Deeply Concerned About Your Children

Apparently, supporters of Proposition 8 -- a measure on California's November ballot that would overturn the recent court decision legalizing gay marriage -- aren't trying to impose a retrograde belief system on the rest of us. Nor is it their intention to cement discrimination against gays and lesbians into law. Nothing like that.

No, what they're trying to do is protect your children from being viciously shorn of their innocence by activist judges bent on forcing gay marriage down everyone's throat -- even the state's kindergarteners.

According to an article in the SF Gate, the proposition's backers claim that if the measure fails, teachers will be required to advocate for same-sex marriage as early as kindergarten:

"Yes on 8 campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Kerns said Thursday that the court decision would make instruction on same-sex marriage mandatory under a state law that requires public schools to offer comprehensive health education programs from kindergarten through high school.
[ ... ]
" ... In the ballot arguments, Prop. 8 supporters declared, "We should not accept a court decision that results in public schools teaching our kids that gay marriage is okay. That is an issue for parents to discuss with their children according to their values and beliefs. It shouldn't be forced on us against our will."
