Report: Christian Parent Arrested After Being Denied Say-So in Son's Education
(AgapePress) - A Massachusetts group battling judicial activism and the advancing homosexual agenda in their state is reporting that the father of a kindergarten student was arrested on Wednesday during a scheduled meeting with the principal of his son's school. Since January, the father of the six-year-old had been attempting to get his son opted-out from discussions portraying homosexuality as acceptable.
According to reports by the Article 8 Alliance, David Parker and his wife Tonia had been in e-mail contact with Joni Jay, principal of Estabrook Elementary School in Lexington regarding material brought home by their son from school. The "Diversity Book Bag" included a book titled Who's in a Family, which portrays same-sex parent families as morally equivalent to traditional families.
One of the most disturbing trends of our time is the erosion of parental control. Children are now seen to have "rights" such as "privacy" and the ability to make medical decisions. Minor children do not have such rights. Parents are 100% responsible for the safety, behavior, and well-being of their children, they are also held legally responsible for the actions of their minor child.
One of a parent's duties is to filter what their children are exposed to. This parent made a reasonable request that was denied apparently because school officials believe more in homosexual indoctrination than they do parental rights/responsibilities. All parents should ask their children every night what they learned in school that day.
