Some comments from the petition they have asking for people to support this lawsuit are straight off the M4L playbook, with variations of “it’s indoctrination, kids should just learn to read and write, they’re teachers not counselors, I will decide what values my child learns” etc.

If you’re inclined to read more for educational purposes only, you can find their petition on change.org.

Personally if you’re that opposed to having thoughtful, kind and inclusive children then homeschool them or pay for private school.

My mil just moved in with us, she’s 88, and we’ve added safe space heaters to her new bedroom and bathroom.

Our electric bill more than doubled. Usually I save money in the winter over the summer cause we have natural gas, but I’ve never had an electric bill this high.

She’s constantly cold, even wearing sweaters and such, so we have to keep it warm for her.

Intent of a Founding Father was to have a democracy that changed with the times, not stayed stagnant in the past.

“I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and Constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.” Thomas Jefferson
