Lexington, MA school officials have asked that a lawsuit, filed by parents of 2 children who were exposed to books with gay elements, be dismissed. The parents claim the discussion violates their rights as parents to teach their religion's morality.
School lawyer John Davis said, "The parents do have rights...but they don't have the right to dictate to the public school system what their children can be exposed to in the way of ideas." 30 demonstrators for both sides rallied near the courthouse.
Parents' lawyer Robert Sinsheimer said they fear, "their kids are being brainwashed," in the only state currently allowing gay marriage. The parents want to be warned of such topics arising in their childrens' grade school so they may be avoided.
