    Sen. Jim DeMint: Gays And Unmarried, Pregnant Women Should Not Teach Public School

    There are so many things wrong with his statements that I don't even know where to begin criticizing them.

    Maybe that is because you are "comfortably numb". Teachers are role models. If they want to display behaviors that are against the taxpayers' (parents') beliefs or morals, they should not be supported by tax dollars. If they want to run their own schools and display those behaviors, go for it! Use free enterprise to push your beliefs, not my tax dollars.

    It's South Carolina man. The majority of folks here probably agree with him.

    That would be the scariest thing about his statements.

    if parents don't want their kids to go to school and have teachers that are gay or pregnant out of wedlock, there is always the private school option. Otherwise, too fucking bad. Public schools cannot and should not discriminate.

    That's one way of looking at it, but there ARE gay folks out there, In Real Life,

    as there are unmarried pregnant women,

    and I'd rather our school system didn't TEACH bigotry...

    I don't think it has anything to do with bigotry.

    It's more to do with letting them live a childhood before real life hits them in the face. There's value to a decent childhood.

    There are laws against employment discrimination. If you want your kids going to a school that discriminates, YOU should pay for a private school.

    Based on your logic, we should have drunks, drug addicts, prostitutes teaching in public schools? Why do you say my post is stupid?
    If you want "brain-washed" worker bees, then you give them role-models, not people that are "rebeling against the system". If you want the children to grow up not believing in the rule of law, and taking advantage of the system at every turn, then you give the students "alternative models".
    If I am a parent, I do not want my tax dollars to support a person that does not respect my values by trying to push "their agenda" onto school students. It is like the guys that were using drugs and drinking that worked for Chrysler; it was unacceptable for them to do that while they were going to be working that afternoon. If you want to display your homosexual tendencies, or immoral living conditions, or your recreational drug use, don't teach school. If you want to represent a moral person that will be influencing young children, then teach school.
