I live in Canada and was educated in Canada where gay marriage is legal. The only message I remember being taught in schools is "Gay is Okay". I'm a little unclear - is this the message you are talking about - or are you against teaching something else? If it is about the message "gay is okay", then I must ask - what is wrong with teaching tolerance in schools?

Edit: Okay, I read this from your first link in a later post:
Quote:
A group of parents in a California school district
say they are being bullied by school administrators into accepting a new curriculum that addresses bullying, respect and acceptance
Now I'm really confused - what is wrong with teaching kids about respect and acceptance?
