WTF? schoolkids asked to sign 'Gay' pledge

OneNewsNow reports about California kindergarteners being given a 'homosexual pledge card' to not use any slurs, talk against homosexuals, and stand up for homosexual students.


The pledge cards were produced by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education
Network, or GLSEN, and featured oaths that students would not use "anti-lesbian,
gay, bisexual and transgender language or slurs," that students would intervene
on behalf of homosexual students when possible, and that they would actively
support safer schools efforts. Tara Miller is a kindergarten teacher at
Faith Ringgold School of Arts and Science in Hayward, California. She passed out
the pledge cards to her students, which she then asked them to sign. Peter
LaBarbera, the president of Americans for Truth about
, is outraged at Miller's actions.

In the same report on, a spokesperson for the school agreed
that the pledge was inappropriate for the kindergarten students and said that
the pledges were meant for middle school and high school students.

That's much better. No student should be exposed to this garbage.

***UPDATE: The complete story from
Are you as outraged as I am? Be sure to talk to your kids every day about what they're learning in school. Read their textbooks, especially history, and watch for any 'special' visitors to their schools to talk to the kids. If something like this happens in my local school district, you can be sure I will petition for equal time in front of the kids to promote a conservative agenda.
