Local NARAL event of sorts TOMORROW - One person's lack of compassion does not equal another's comfort.

Local NARAL event of sorts TOMORROW
At the orientation one of the things we were told was that a sex ed curriculum in my home county of Montgomery County MD was shot down after protesters from outside the state protested against it.

I've just learned by email that there will be a hearing tomorrow morning, Thursday at 10:30am regarding the curriculum and that these out-of-town protesters may be there again. I'm very interested to show my support for my own county governing its own public school system; This isn't Iraq, and out of towners should mind their own business.

While I respect that most of you either work a day job or don't have kids I know at least some of you may wish to come to this as well. Interested parties who have not been otherwise notified should contact me for more info.

It was shot down because of the way it addressed homosexuality and birth control. You know...the things that conservatives don't want their kids learning about. My dad's been invited to be on the council thingie to help come to a decision about what will be taught. I don't know if he's going to do it, but he might. It'd be nice if someone talked sense there for a change instead of spewing hate.
