FORMER Gays Demand Equal, Fair Treatment Vis a Vis Current Gays

Ex-gays demand that extremely intolerant gays be tolerant...

Story here.

“PFOX is calling on students to distribute flyers promoting acceptance of ex-gays. Former homosexuals and their supporters are ridiculed and forced to live in silence. Our nation’s schools deny students with unwanted same-sex attractions any support or fact-based information that feelings can and do change,” said Quinlan.

“PFOX has distributed informative flyers in some of the largest school districts in the country,” said Quinlan. “PFOX’s one-page flyer gives students more complete information on sexual orientation and urges tolerance for all. Yet many GSA clubs have opposed our flyers even though they demand equality for gays. Equality exists when both gay and ex-gay organizations have equal access to students on the issue of sexual orientation. Gay groups should not be the only ones to have access to students on the issue of sexual orientation.”

The flyer, which can be downloaded from the organization’s site, explains that ex-”gays” can seek information on overcoming their feelings.

“Individuals deserve the right to self-determination and happiness based on their own needs, and not the demands of others. PFOX supports tolerance for all.”

Gays who hate ex-gays are just afraid of the inconvenient truth:  That they CAN be straight if they want.

Trying to deny equal rights to former homosexuals... exposes the gay community as intolerant hypocrites.

If gays are allowed to go around spewing their promotional propaganda, including in the schools, then they must allow ex-gays to do the same as well.  If they don't, then they're intolerant, hypocritical bigots.

It puzzles me that homosexuals who claim to be in favor of freedom of expression are so virulently hostile and intolerant of free expression by FORMER homosexuals, much like Muslims are intolerant of former Muslims. Interesting parallel. In both cases, it's all about intolerance, bigotry and supremacism.

So that's ok with you, as long as PFOX gets to as well?

..."The Washington Examiner"... (an excellent news source)"...quoted Starr blasting PFOX."

“We can’t really do much about it unless we wanted to cut off all flyer distribution, which is an option,” he said. “This group has figured out how to use that law to spread what I find to be a really, really disgusting message, frankly.”

Starr gets upset when people exercise their first amendment rights.

Joshua Starr is new to Montgomery County, a product of Harvard with a doctorate in education administration, planning and social policy.

His mission is the same one he had in Stamford Connecticut where he served 5 and a half years as their school board director. They desired to see a difference in "the achievement gap" of their students. To that he has said he was “not a strong believer” in paying teachers based on the academic performance of students.
Also he “doesn’t know why they (charter schools) would be needed here in Montgomery County..."

How did he do for Stamford?

Starr: “On one hand I think we’ve laid a really good foundation over the last five and a half years, and I’m quite proud of that. On the other hand, we need another five years to get to the next level.
(Sound familiar?)
Here's a quote from a Montgomery County board member.
"During the meeting, Starr was praised as a man of infectious personality and big ideas."
(Sound Familiar?)

So... How's he doing in Montgomery County?

Starr has dedicated most of his first year on the new job to getting to know the 146,000-student system. He and school board members have said he did not come in with a mandate — or a desire — to make radical changes, and he did not organize Thursday’s forum to announce any new initiatives. Instead, he said, the purpose was for people “to learn together about a really complex issue and to learn from each other.”

"Afterward, some parents said they were disappointed that Starr was not more forthcoming about his own perspective."
(No surprise there.)

Starr likes to ask questions like these:
"What does it mean to organize community resources?"
and
"How do you link those (community agencies)so that there’s consistency in what we’re trying to teach our kids and how we’re trying to teach them?"

And makes statements like this:
“If all the black kids and Latino kids and poor kids and English language learners and special ed kids were doing as well as they should be and everything were equal, we still wouldn’t be done because we’re not as competitive as we need to be.”

In Stamford, a school system 1/10th the size of Montgomery County's, Starr was paid $217,141 a year, the city’s third-highest municipal salary. I wonder what they paid him this year to "get to know the system".

Wow. Another big ivy league education with no real accomplishments. His education goals sound like Obamacare. No surprise, then, that he finds the first amendment inconvenient.

So much for Montgomery County Schools. They have hired an ineffective leftist blowhard.

I have been observing the give and take on your postings and I don't see examples of "WASTING TIME WITH USELESS RHETORIC". Unless you are referring to Balbul's attempts to reason with you.

I find it really hard to make out the distorted words for proving I am not a robot. It takes me several tries. That's annoying. Can't you select an easier to read font?

--Either everyone has equal rights, or no one has rights. I will speak out against double standards that aren't being spoken out against by the corrupt, non-free, corporate media that favors the Far Left (just like you do, Balbulican, you propagandist [but that's ok... ;) ])

Canadian Sentinel said...

Further, Balbulican, if the gays get to spew their propaganda to school children, I say let Christian fundamentalists to so, too... ;)

Canadian Sentinel said...

Canuckguy: You may not see Balbul's useless rhetoric, but that's because you're either incapable or unwilling to do so. I do, and that's good enough for me. You are foolish to trust that man.

Canadian Sentinel said...

Balbul doesn't "reason". Period.

Canuckguy, just use your head.

Otherwise, you disappoint me.
