Indeed, homosexual activists have made great strides in public schools. One of the ways they are forcing their agenda into schools is through so-called anti-harassment or anti-bullying policies, explored below. Through this vehicle and others, their goal is not simply to end the mistreatment of gays or to prevent bullying, but to force heterosexual society to accept their behavior as normal-as just another equally valid lifestyle.
No one approves of actual bullying or harassment of any groups or individuals for any reason, including sexual orientation. The problem some have with the message of Just the Facts and related propaganda is that it assumes that the higher rates of emotional distress, suicide attempts, and risky sexual behavior and substance abuse are the result of bullying rather than something that might be linked to the lifestyle behaviors themselves. Beyond that, though, the real civil rights issue here is the discrimination against students who uphold traditional religious beliefs about homosexuality. There is no legitimate reason for the public schools to assume a charter to reshape the religious beliefs of students or to deny them the right to freely dissent from this propaganda. Bullying is legitimately punishable-and always has been. But the idea that traditional religious beliefs should be subverted by the public schools as a matter of course and duty is ominous.
The United States, by the end of 1988, had become the world's most hated country And not just in Latin America where the United States had for generations been regarded as the world's last imperialist power. No the same hatred was also endemic in Europe. Here the United States was seen as a bully nation led by primitive men who were forever threatening the extinction of mankind, obsessed, as they were, with retaining global power no matter what the cost might be for others. If it come to a showdown with the Russians, many Europeans were convinced that the Americans would fight to the last German and Frenchman and Britisher. Better them dead than America Red.
Wichern recorded his shocked descriptions of the living conditions of the urban proletariat in his diary, and his early writings parallel Friedrich Engels' descriptions of the situation of the English working class. The young Wichern used large parish meetings as a bully pulpit to challenge citizens to charitable work. Convinced that neglected and abused children had to be given a new environment, he gained access to a dilapidated cottage on a local estate and began a rescue home for children. Known as the ''Rauhe Haus'' (''Rough House'') because of its poor condition, but called by Wichern ''the House of Love,'' he, his mother, a sister and brother, moved in and began repairs. Within days they were bringing in neglected children of the city. By the end of the year (1833) there were 12 boys ranging in age from five to eighteen most of whom Wichern had met in prison or on the streets where they literally spent their nights. One of the 12-year-olds had been arrested 92 times for theft
Nobody else) and leave others to enjoy theirs in private whatever their inclinations, which are none of your business (263-64). As for ethical role models, the Bible has no good ones to offer either, starting with God. God comes off as arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction jealous and proud of it a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infantieidah genocidal, fiiicidah pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully*' (31). No wonder Abraham, Noah, and Moses are such shady characters also. Just consider their role model.
Important for our moral and spiritual development. It is here that we learn to stand up for the weak, or, in my case, to my shame, how to hide myself, join in the crowd of haters and pass for straight until a later time. And the interesting thing is that in this sense the gay thing comes upon straight kids as well - they too make moral choices, know what is right and wrong here. More and more adults and kids are reporting that straight kids are increasingly reluctant to go along with gay bullying, whether they see it being done by fellow students or by adults. This is not because they have become hedonistic, oversexualized decadents. It is, on the contrary, because they seem to sense that such behavior is unworthy of them they are less than straight if they need to beat up on the gay kids.
