Sorry Tim, we do need to discern, and to make judgement calls.

The question is, on what basis do we make those calls? If someone decides they have the right to destroy existing values i.e., pushing the social re-engineering agenda into the public school system then who decides what is right or wrong? What yard stick do we use to measure this?

If a teenage boy decides he is a girl does he have the right to walk into the girl’s public restroom? We could go on and on. Have you ever thought that there could very well be folks who are “fed up” with having an ‘alternate lifestyle’ rammed down their throats by way of the social re-engineering folks through the school systems?
