Do you support the new law requiring students to be taught the contributions of notable lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people throughout history?

    Cory, yes Christ said love one another. I Absolutely agree. At no point in time is anyone talking About not loving. And history is history regardless of orientation. The moment orientation becomes justification for specific laws or teaching the historical ACTION is lost and overshadowed by the personal life of the individual. I have known, still know and have served and still serve with people of all orientations and at NO POINT IN TIME was their orientation justification for special favor or circumstance... their actions were. My children are my responsibility and if the school “must” get involved as your so eloquently put it then where is the school or state on abstinence where two high school students aren’t able to support a child. Where is the school or state on massive efforts to combat the drug plague in our state and county, where is the state in domestic violence beyond a law that often times falls short of actual action to prevent and is more reactive in nature? If you want tolerance then school prayer, religion in schools and faith must ALSO be included or we have become nothing more than a place where squeaky wheels get the oil and the rest of us need to ride along or be punished.

    I do not want my son learning about sexuality in school. I am going to have to take my kid out of NJ schools if this law stands.

    Who gives these people the right to force this on our kids?

    I stand with the mayor

    Wow, I can’t believe you “religious” hypocrites are still around in 2019. Gay people exist wether you “believe” in them or not. Teaching LGBT history is no different than teaching black history or Latino history in our schools. Just like climate change, sticking your heads in the sand doesn’t change reality. Face it, your belief system is outdated and falls apart under the slightest scrutiny. Reflect on the actual words of Christ “love one another”. If you lack empathy and are so emotionally stunted that you are unable to teach your children tolarance, then it’s up to the schools.

    I do not agree with the various lifestyles that the educational system exposes children to.
    The schools already teach holiday observances that are in conflict with
    Our family's values and religion.
    I do believe tolerance should be taught non-specifically

    As a retired health teacher of health and family living, l am appalled at where public education is headed. I applaud the Barnegate mayor for his stand against teaching about LBGQTXYZ
    people. Those students who allegedly fall into those unholy pits of alternate life styles are in for more disappointment and problems than they ever imagined. They need counseling about their selected problems. I wonder how many of them are making claims of their conditions because it is fashionable, hip, daring or attention getting?
    We are still a Christain nation that our forefathers based our civil and moral compass. It is the Liberals and humanists that have misdirected society's understanding of what is moral or immoral. There is a price to pay for their misguided choices in their young, naive, inexperienced lives. I pray they will realized their errant choice before it is too late for them.
