Skip to comments.Class surprises lesbian teacher on wedding day

A group of San Francisco first-graders took an unusual field trip to City Hall on Friday to toss rose petals on their just-married lesbian teacher - putting the public school children at the center of a fierce election battle over the fate of same-sex marriage.
The 18 Creative Arts Charter School students took a Muni bus and walked a block at noon to toss rose petals and blow bubbles on their just-married teacher Erin Carder and her wife Kerri McCoy, giggling and squealing as they mobbed their teacher with hugs.
Mayor Gavin Newsom, a friend of a friend, officiated.
A parent came up with the idea for the field trip - a surprise for the teacher on her wedding day.
"She's such a dedicated teacher," said the school's interim director Liz Jaroflow.
But there was a question of justifying the field trip academically. Jaroflow decided she could.
"It really is what we call a teachable moment," Jaroflow said, noting the historic significance of same-sex marriage and related civil rights issues. "I think I'm well within the parameters."
Nonetheless, the excursion offers Proposition 8 proponents fresh ammunition for their efforts to outlaw gay marriage in California, offering a real-life incident that echoes their recent television and radio ads.
"It's just utterly unreasonable that a public school field trip would be to a same-sex wedding," said Chip White, press secretary for the Yes on 8 campaign. "This is overt indoctrination of children who are too young to have an understanding of its purpose."
The trip illustrates the message promoted by the campaign in recent days, namely that unless Prop. 8 passes on Nov. 4, children will learn about same-sex marriage in school.

Funny...I was was thinking she has Casey Anthony’s profile...
Sick bass turds. There was a time when America was a decent country. Now we take 1st graders to lesbian “weddings.”
So not to be offensive, but who would be the daddy if they had kids of adopted???

“Gayvin Threesome” is a sick mofo.

Making wrong the right, black the white, and true the lie on a daily basis...
Come and visit but just remember: you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave!
>>Is he holding a menu?<<
This reeks of political child abuse; the parents wanted this.
“I’ll have what Barney Frank is having.”
I don’t think Casey Anthony looks all that bad.
