For the publisher:
In Karrie Alberts’ letter (June 30), she asks âWhen or how are Christian children not supported?
The flag and the LGBTQ + community support same-sex marriage. God does not. The LGBTQ + flag hangs in the college cafeteria. This flag does not support students who believe in responding to God’s love by obeying His commandments.
It is not the existence of the LGBTQ + community that is an attack on freedom of expression and freedom of religion. It is the promotion of the LGBTQ + lifestyle in our public schools.
Consider some of the concerns that have been expressed to me by parents and students:
1. On the first day of high school, my daughter told me that her literature teacher announced at the end of class, âWe’re going to read this book. Your parents may not like it. (Why not?)
2. A high school football player said, âSometimes teachers show an R-rated movie. If we don’t want to watch it, we have to bring a signed note home to be excused. Don’t you find it strange that other students don’t have to bring notes from home giving them permission to watch it?
3. An assistant for a child with special needs expressed concern that substitute teachers were aware of the expected curriculum at the college. She left with her student when a submarine started showing a movie that was “very inappropriate”. Not wanting to lose her job, she didn’t report it.
4. Rainbow stickers were distributed to teachers and college students and displayed. Were they included all students?
5. The belief in the creation of the world by God is not presented with the theory of evolution in science lessons. A submarine who said evolution was only a theory was not invited to re-subscribe to this class.
I care about all the children. We can move on when the Marshall School Board has the power to get involved in school issues and takes action to meet its mission statement âTo support all learnersâ.
