Restricting Homosexual Activists in Schools:

Despite various efforts to ban activist groups like the “Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network” (GLSEN) from promoting “tolerance” of homosexuality to children in public schools, success stories in doing so are few and far between. A new law in Georgia, however, might be the answer to part of the problem.

This year, public schools in the Peach State must alert parents to the nature of all non-academic clubs and allow them to “opt-out” their children from any meetings they deem offensive. This new law accomplishes two very important objectives.
First, this law will obviously give parents the choice to protect their children from the influence of homosexual activist organizations like GLSEN.

Second, this law will alert parents who would otherwise believe their schools are somehow exempt from pro-homosexual activism.
