1) Mandatory education has a lot to do with legislation does it not? I know it's not ALL ABOUT legislation but legislation has something to do with this so I feel that my question was not off topic.
My point was to illustrate what people should find condmenable. We condemn actions not thoughts.
2) And I will disagree with them if it is about removing LGBT people from books. The ones I agree with are the ones simply asking to opt out. They should have that choice.
3) When one can insert one's politics into mandatory education. You make one's politics mandatory. The fact is, I agree with the LGBT lessons being there. I disagree about it being mandatory seeing as there could be a time wherein I will disagree with the majority politics at the time and I would also want to be heard when that happens.
4) I'm sorry but the current majority does not get to decide how I raise my kids. My values may be in line with the majority atm, but that will not always be the case and when that time comes, I reserve the right to protest and let my voice be heard.
1) I worded this badly. We already established in this thread that the protest is not illegal and nobody wants it to be illegalised so the question about their thought seemed a little bit redundant/point less to me.
2) Now that's a much more interesting discussion I think. I'm against having a opt out choice. Why? Because it would be against to reason those books exist in the first place. The children whose perants don't tell them about other cultures and LGBT people or tell them bad things(sinner, molesters, etc.) are the target audience for this change in the school books.
3) But that's how school is since the beginning, it is impossible to make school unpolitical, it will always reflect the current political consensus. In a democracy you can decide what politics influence the school system.
4) You, these protesting muslims and everyone else can raise their kids as they want, at home but not at school, That's the way it is in pretty much every western country.
