"We are shut up in schools and college recitation rooms for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bellyful of words and do not know a thing. "

So what's next?

Having suffered their inevitable defeat on their mission from God against the abhorrent lifestyle of our gay students and community, what's coming next from Hutch and his disciples at CoDE?

We took a peek at the CoDE web site to see if we can discern the next attack from this group.

So just what are the CoDE parents concerned about?

A parent says:
"I am especially concerned about the prevalence of witchcraft and anti Christian attitudes and actions at MSHS."

A parent says:
"SVSD is allowing the agendas of certain interest groups have a foothold in Snoqualmie Valley schools. Those agendas are in direct conflict with traditional family values and what my families believes to be morally right."

A community member says:
"Unequal representation. The GSA has taken over the school and all efforts to create a bible study group has been met with extreme resistence.(sp)"

A parent says:
"I believe that I, as a parent, should be the first and foremost teacher of our child, especially in the area of life's values. It disturbs me that teachers, who have so much influence in our children's lives, can undermine what we teach at home in areas that have nothing to do with basic education."

It sounds like resolving their religious beliefs and the curriculum in public schools is presenting a challenge to these parents. Surely if they believe in the Old Testament, a conflict with evolution is not far off.

Can we expect CoDE to assault our science programs because they conflict with their fundamental beliefs? Is an attempt at introducing “Intelligent Design” coming our way next?

The assault on science and reason has been underway for years now by the religious right. If CoDE gets this flustered by gay kids, what do they have in store for science?

In case any of you have forgotten, there is a difference between biblical science and real science. Here is a great video that clarifies the differences and contributions both have made to society.

We'll be ready!

How dare the CoDE demand equal treatment for ALL people and beliefs! How dare they think that our public schools and tax dollars are for EDUCATION! Shame on them!

We won't stand for it! We will continue to push our agenda forward!

I wanted to thank GLSEN for providing the Gameworks party on Saturday for all the students who participated in the Day of Silence.
This kind of support will go a long way to building support among the kids for the event next year.

And what an educational opportunity this event has given our children at Mt. Si! High school is meant to prepare our kids for 'real life', and what better way than this? Fantastic!
In five years these kids may not remember the date of the Emancipation Proclamation; they may not remember their trigonometric identities, but they will sure as @#!! remember this. They'll remember that as high school kids they could participate in and affect big issues. They'll remember the silliness people are capable of, and they have a head start on being thoughtful, politically active adults. Hooray!
