Would you care if your child's teacher were gay?

Posted by   + Show Post

It's almost the end of the school year so the school's been looking for new teachers to replace a few outgoing teachers retiring at the end of this year. One new hire everyone is buzzing about is a man with tons of qualifications and experience who also happens to be gay. I believe sexuality is irrelevant when it comes to teaching kids, but there are lots of parents who are very upset about it, especially those whose kids will have him for 5th grade next year.

Would it bother you if you found out your child's teacher is gay? How would you talk to your child about the subject if he/she came home asking questions about it?

Abomination is the word ......all Sin is equal in God's eyes....

Quoting TeenMommie4u:

We Are Getting Married And It Is A Sin But Is No Way As Bad As Being Gay. It Says In The Bible That Its An Abominashine.

Nope...I'm not....but apparently you need to be schooled! People have many opinions on some sin being worse than other sin.....but the fact of the matter is any one sin is sufficient to keep us from God.  You are living with your granny....and you have a child....and you are not married....but your fiancĂ© lives with you...(I read your other post) hmmmmmmmmm

You would have been as equally stoned to death in biblical times. Just a thought.

And, what is an abominashine? Did you mean abomination?

I think it is quite unfortunate that TeenMommie4u's God made her such a complete idiot.  Education and diversity....both good things.

It wouldn't bother me at all. A person's sexual orientation has no effect on how well they do their job.
