RE: [RLC-Action] FW: [Libertarian Republicans] Father arrested over objections to curriculum in son's Kindergarten class
Yet again, the point that I was trying to make – and this was an ACTION issue that NO ONE hardly has addressed – is the callous and oppressive attitude of this school superintendent who has a father arrested for being in attendance at a PRIVATE meeting CALLED for this specific purpose and which he was INVITED to, simply because the father would not allow himself to be bullied into submission by the school district. This is the sort of behavior – petty bureaucrats acting as autocrats – that we should be shouting from the rooftops about. No matter what you may think of the issue being discussed (and I agree with your point on that, Chuck, 100%), this is the statism issue that should be addressed and I felt we should take ACTION to help this father in this false arrest situation. THAT WAS IT. People seized on it because they want to debate the homosexual thing.

Libertarians LOVE homosexuals, right? What people do in their own bedrooms is fine with us. We respect them as free individuals. We treasure consenting adults.
What we don't like is the STATE pushing one life style or theory over another. We don't like it when one group or another uses the government for this purpose. (Are you listening, Religious Right?)
Public schools are STATE institutions. They're preparing the next generation of statists. Get rid of the nostalgia that keeps you from seeing this. Use public schools at your own risk.
These points have been missing from this discussion so far.
P.S. I miss the ACTION.
