A collection of 'gay' organizations has filed a friend-of-the-court brief in a Massachusetts lawsuit, claiming they have every right to teach their doctrine to grade-school students.

Parental rights, according to the brief filed this week, "have never meant that a parent can demand prior notice and the right to opt a child out of mere exposure to ideas in the public schools that a parent disapproves of."

That includes, according to the brief, religious or any other ideas.

The new brief was filed in a Massachusetts District Court lawsuit by Lexington parent David Parker, whose civil rights case is pending, by the Human Rights Campaign, the ACLU, Massachusetts Teachers Association, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders and others.

"The amici organizations urge this court to grant the school defendants' motion to dismiss because the scope of the rights of religious freedom and parental control over the upbringing of children, as asserted by the plaintiffs, would undermine teaching and learning in the Lexington public schools," the brief alleges.

California's Governor Arnold Schwartzenegger just vetoed a bill (SB 1437) that would allow people of history to be defined by the sexual preference rather than their achievements. I had previously coorsponded with the Governor's office and received 2 replies; the first just after the original email I sent, and the second just after the Governor vetoed the bill.

Clearly, this is another attempt to redefine parents responsiblities, and once again, the ACLU steps up to support criminal behavior.
