More from Lexington

The Article 8 Alliance folk (director Brian Camenker) did not disappoint on the mad dad who staged a sit-in at a Lexington, Massachusetts, school. While David Parker himself has little to say and his court appearance for refusing to leave the school after two hours of requests is June 1.

However, look to the Article 8 Website and the MassResistance one for the tropes and illogic. The former site fairly screams, as much as online type can:
Read the Massachusetts Parental Notification Act which the school is ignoring. In this case, the Superintendent claims that homosexuality is not about "human sexuality issues" but "real life" that must be taught to kids.
Unfortunately for the argument, the law is pretty specific. They link to it, where the school is "implementing or maintaining curriculum which primarily involves human sexual education or human sexuality issues" that it must notify parents and let them opt out.

Not only does the school do that, the education here involves those picture books. The offending images are of a two-mom family in the yard, kids playing, one mom washing a dog and the other carrying towels on the other side of the picture. Likewise, the other image has two dads preparing dinner in the kitchen. The daughter reads, while one dad sets the table and another cooks.

So to the Parkers and Camenker, that's sexuality. You gotta wonder what their idea of foreplay and sex is.

For more good stuff, go to the MassResistence site for Lexington's New "Captain" Parker. It flames about "homosexual curriculum materials and possible discussions in his child'’s kindergarten class" and whips out Bible quotes. There's Ephesians 6: 10-18. If you've forgotten, sample verse 11: Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. (Actually the King James is a tiny bit more poetic. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. I prefer that one.)

MassResistence included an exhortation for our moral guy — "Yes, David, you are a soldier! Suit up..."

That is "suit up" not "shut up."
