Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Due to other duties that have kept me away, I haven't been here much lately and have only been commenting on stuff rather sporadically, so I don't know if this video has made the rounds here yet.  It's in excess of 8 minutes but you won't need to watch but a few seconds to be utterly revolted by what you see.  With that warning, here it is:

As hateful and disturbing as the words this misguided child is saying are, it's not the message that I'm writing about here today.  Nor is it an examination of the christofascists putting their children up to this know full well that no one's going to call the little kid on his BS or, better still, they'll be able to get footage of an adult berating the kid to show how evil progressives are.

No, I'm interested in how much the kid knows and where he's learning it.  Follow me below the squiggle for a little discussion.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

This kid talks about fornication, sodomy and sexual activity between 2 men or 2 women.  Where did he learn about all of this?  From his parents, naturally.  His parents who are all up in arms about "homosexuality being taught in our schools" and who are fighting tooth and nail to keep marriage between one man and one woman so that their little moppet won't have to be exposed to another kid with 2 daddies or mommies.

In other words, the children of these "Christians" probably know considerably more about butt sex and other forms of sexual activity than their counterparts who are being raised in much more mainstream homes.

I was raised in a fairly permissive time (the 60s and 70s) but even I didn't have a grasp on homosexuality and what it was until my own sexual awakening as a teenager.  Before that, based on the description by my friend Mike Feldman of homosexuality being 2 men living together, I assumed that homosexuality was something like "The Odd Couple."  Butt sex and blow jobs?  Not EVEN in my lexicon.

I don't think I can say the same for these Christian kids and I find it disturbing.  Disturbing because their parents are bald-faced hypocrites in schooling their children about all the things they're accusing the public schools of teaching them; and even more disturbing because these kids aren't really getting any kind of childhood as they're being thrust into the public square to parrot their parents' hateful bigotry.
