Parental Notification Laws regarding Gay & Lesbian Programs for Youths?
na ^ | 01.30.02 | Registered

I know that there a Parental Notification laws that vary from state to state regarding a minor having an abortion. My question is, are there any that would require an organization that is offering programs for minors that concern their sexuality to notify the parent(s) first? I would personally throttle any person or organization that attempted to indoctrinate my kids into a Gay or Lesbian lifestyle. Are there any organizations out there that are trying to get laws passed that hold these people accountable for the harm they are causing the youth?


Just look at some of the links below and you will understand my concern.

    Information About Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgendered and Questioning Youth

    An increasing number of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning (GLBTQ) young people experience alienation by peers, rejection from family and friends, and derision by society at large. Home and school often lack the necessary resources to help GLBTQ youth with the fear and isolation they often face. Without support from their peers or allies, many are likely to find themselves confronted with HIV disease, depression, drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness, and suicide.

    Yet, thousands of young people every year are coming out and developing pride in their identity. Having found new communities and direction, many are ready to reach out to their peers through support activities and community organizing. This has resulted in a growing national movement of GLBTQ young people speaking out about their experiences and demanding respect, rights, services and a voice in their schools and their communities. It has also resulted in a greater need for skills-building training and peer support.

    The explosion of GLBTQ youth activism has created a great need for resources and institutional support. Youth activists are challenging adults to respond to their needs and concerns. They are asking for the tools required for them to develop as leaders and to be able to share organizing skills and issue-based knowledge with their peers. GLBTQ youth are building a movement - and they are asking NGLTF to help them to achieve their goals. NGLTF operates four programs to nurture and support youth activism:

    NGLTF views this work as a critical component to realizing its mission of advancing equality and civil rights of GLBT persons and raising public awareness about issues that affect GLBT communities. NGLTF recognizes the necessity to provide institutional support to young people, and is committed to supporting the needs of GLBTQ youth and youth activists.

    These kids are going through tremendous changes, both physically and mentally, and to be thrown to these wolves without any parent involvement absolutely disgusts me!

    There is a silver lining to this cloud, however. Those liberals who are so stupid as to welcome this sort of education for their children probably won't have any grandchildren so maybe their line will just die out.

    *Sigh*. Yes they are. I can't say where I work, but *take a guess*. Unchecked? Yep. All the time......The gay agenda never sleeps, never takes a coffee break, and is out there people. And if you DARE to question it you are shunned. And the school districts support the gay agenda whole heartedly.

    I don't think homosexuality is acquired by recruitment.

    So far all the evidence is against you.

    We will all be better off to encourage our government to enforce sodomy laws already on the books. That would force the sodomites back into the closet and away from the children without hampering their "Private" activities. The problem is when they are allowed protection from prosecution they become vocal advocates for indoctrination into their lifestyle. By gaining government approval it is hard for parents to convince their children that unchecked promiscuity and sexual perversion are wrong. They just say "hey its not against the law so what can it hurt when it feels so good?"

    You know what I mean. I liken this crap to my kid walking into a porn shop. There should be stiff (no pun intended) penalties for these organizations that pollute young minds, especially without true parental consent. Most just want those "emergency contact" forms filled out but keep the kids' participation a secret from the parents. THIS IS NOT RIGHT.

    My daughter, 7th grd., had a French teacher that was gay. Before the parents showed up for parent-teacher conf, the guy changed into normal clothes from a frilly pink-satin getup. The kids told their parents, at least mine did and she knew there was something wrong here. I didn't have to tell her about this. You're correct, they are out to teach and convince kids that this kind of stuff is normal. It's not, it's queer, and it's a recrutement drive.

    BTW, you can defend the perversity of homosexuality all you want, I'll do what against it okay? Maybe we'll just cancel each other out and the world won't progress any further down that cesspool of accepting as deviant lifestyles as normal.

    Legalizing pot: The WOD has resulted in a massive increases in invasive federal government practices such as asset forfeiture and warrantless searches and wiretaps, which conservatives allegedly opposed to a powerful central government should resist. Additionally, while conservatives generally support states' rights, the federal government has blocked efforts by states to lessen drug laws.

    Death penalty: First, it actually costs more money to execute someone than it does to keep them in prison for life. Second, some conservatives might not trust the government court system sufficiently to grant it the power to impose death.

    Gay marriages: I agree that this hard to make a strictly conservative argument for. One could argue that as far as the government is concerned, marriage is primarily an economic arrangement, and it is discriminatory to not allow homosexuals the same economic benefits as heterosexuals.

    Sullivan may be right that the attitudes of college students are becoming more libertarian than liberal, although we'd have to see their opinions on economic issues to determine that.

    Andrew Sullivan's thoughts about anything are skewed by his sexuality and the agenda that he must follow in order for it to be accepted.

    We've been down this road before. Do you honestly want the government criminalizing all private behavior that you don't like? If you're opposed to sex acts in public, as I am, then support laws against sex acts in public. Don't support overbroad laws regulating people's private lives that can be selectively enforced. After all, heterosexuals have been known to practice sodomy too.

    If it was private we would not be talking about it. Go whine to somebody else. Your mother probably still listens to you.
