Father arrested over objections to curriculum in son's Kindergarten class
This is getting ridiculous. The guy was arrested for trespassing. He admitted to trespassing, he even refused to pay his bail so that he could spend the night in prison to try and get more press attention. This is no different from the people that chain themselves across a street to stop traffic while protesting pollution from SUVs… He may have had a valid point about not wanting his kids to be taught things that his bigoted little mind finds objectionable, but he doesn’t have a right to refuse to leave the school after he has been told to leave.
Let’s also look at the news sources… Adam is offering us a press release from a group called “ Art icle 8 Alliance”, a Waltham , MA single issue anti gay group. No legitimate news articles have been offered, instead he expects everyone to accept the ideology of the press release and pick up the pitchforks like the photo on the Art icle 8 website of a guy with a sign that states “Time for the 2nd Revolution”.
And by the way, the jackass that got himself arrested IS A MEMBER OF THE ARTICLE 8 ALLIANCE . THIS WAS A FUCKING STAGED EVENT!
People, read the Art icle 8 Alliance website for a change. This is not a group that we want to be associating ourselves with in any way.
Now, on to the real news of this story…
