Don't tell....don't tell!

Parents of students at one Illinois high school were shocked to learn that, not only did the school require their 9th-grade kids to attend mandatory Gay-Straight Alliance panel discussions about the homosexual experiences of upperclassmen, but also required the students to sign a confidentiality agreement saying they wouldn't tell anyone about the discussions, including their parents! Read story here.

This is a blatant disregard of parental rights, and one reason many of us fought the "Bully Bill". Once "sexual orientation" is written into a school district's policy, the district will feel obligated to indoctrinate kids about the homosexual lifestyle, under the guise of promoting "understanding and tolerance".

If the proposed bill that would add "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to the state's civil rights code passes, this kind of mandatory indoctrination will move from the schoolhouse to many other areas of our lives. Let your legislator know you oppose adding these categories to our civil rights law

Are you sure it was required that the kids attend the panel? Are you sure that it just wasn't that to attend the panel the students would first need to sign an agreement? Either way, I admire your activism.
