A public school's "gender-bender" cross-dressing event, where boys were supposed to dress as girls and girls as boys, has prompted at least dozens, perhaps hundreds, of students to flee the tax-supported institutions in Iowa. One parent, writing on a blog shortly after the cross-dressing promotion, hardly could contain the outrage.Government schools are another reason I'm more libertarian in my political leanings than conservative.
In bold red type, the parent wrote, "TUESDAY AT ONE OF OUR LOCAL HIGH SCHOOLS THEY HAD WHAT IS CALLED 'GENDER BENDER DAY!' IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT THAT IS THEN LET ME EDUCATE YOU REAL QUICK … IT IS WHERE THE BOYS DRESS LIKE GIRLS AND VICE VERSA!!"
The author continued, "THIS WAS ALLOWED AND CARRIED OUT AT OUR SCHOOLS!!! … I IMMEDIATELY PULLED MY CHILD OUT OF THE DES MOINES PUBLIC SCHOOL! WE ARE NOW HOMESCHOOLING ALONG WITH SEVERAL HUNDRED OTHER PARENTS!"
"I AM GETTING MAD WHILE I TYPE THIS … SO I NEED TO SHUT IT DOWN…"
Institutional schools and the institutional Christian church both seem to be going in the wrong direction. I know home schooling is the right direction. Home churches seem more in line with what should biblically be than the other but I haven't done the research yet to confirm that.
