  •  Here's the Link for the Montana School (0+ / 0-)

    This is the story from CNN.  Read it all.  I think this is what many dems are objecting too.  Either you want to know why the polls are slipping or you don't.  Most people want to know what they're up against.  It helps plan a strategy better.

    In other words, don't kill the messenger.

    •  Not only are you misrepresenting that article (0+ / 0-)

      in terms of what it describes, but more importantly that has nothing to do with marriage equality, and I will point out that Montana doesn't allow same-sex marriage or any other sort of legal status for relationships and therefore is not any sort of cause for the controversy.  

      •  They are Proposing Teaching what the article says (0+ / 0-)

        They are proposing teaching what the article says though.  And it makes sense to have to integrate what is normal for kids of gay parents vs that of straight ones.  You know, when they get into the mechanics in the health ed classes like they do.

        And that is what the course is about, the different types of sex including and outside of reproductive type.

        So even though it isn't mandated to teach this in Montana, yet, much less that gay marriage isn't legal there, it does say where the direction is heading.  Like I said, don't kill the messenger.  I'm trying to brainstorm the soft numbers too.  And I know when it comes to kids, alarm bells start going off.  And it's what I've heard around the grapevine too, whether that's what you want to hear or not.
