AgapePress Passes the Buck, Says Educ. Assn. Hates SpongeBob Video
AgapePress wants everyone to know that the Association of American Educators is urging extreme caution towards the “We Are Family” video.
According to Agape, a representative of the AAE “advises concerned parents to ask their principal if the video is being shown in their children’s school. In addition, ‘they can also ask whether a teacher guide or some document is going to be used along with the video. If so, parents have a right to look at those documents to see the types of issues that are going to be discussed. They can ask, if they like, [whether] the issues of homosexuality or sexual orientation are going to be brought up and if so, [parents] always have the right to exempt their son or daughter from those activities.’”
AgapePress points out that the AAE wants parents to be informed that the tolerance video “is an attempt by homosexual activists to indoctrinate young kids into acceptance of their destructive lifestyle.”
The Association of American Educators’ website includes links to several “character education” programs it endorses. These include the “Core Virtues” program (which intends to cultivate respect, courage, responsibility, and compassion, and “Lessons in Character” (promoting “respect for others, fairness, caring, and citizenship“).
