Anti-Modern Family Utah School Board Implements Institutional LGBT Bullying

Davis School District‘s Morality Code




FARMINGTON, Utah — About a dozen gay and lesbian parents and supporters attempted to speak to the Davis School Board about the controversial decision to yank a children’s book about lesbian mothers from bookshelves in the district.

The Davis School District pulled the book about children with two mothers from library shelves after some parents at a Kaysville elementary school circulated a petition to have it removed. A committee of parents, teachers and faculty made the decision to restrict access to it.

“I think it was the perfect decision,” board member Peter Cannon told FOX 13. “Because we do want to have some protection for our littler kids. But at the same time, we want to make the book still available. I love the idea of having parents have the decision as to how their children will be educated.”

Peter CannonPeter Cannon. Your idea of perfection is seriously flawed.  You treat this book and those whom it exemplifies as something that needs protection against and should be put away in a closet unless specifically called upon!  This book celebrates diversity, inclusion and positivity.  This book promotes rather than suppresses the American modern family.  Simply because it doesn’t represent your narrow personal view does not make it poison to children.

As an educator it’s your responsibility to insure that children have the opportunity to learn there is more than one kind of family in America.  Children learning that there are different kinds of families and that they should be proud of those differences IS an educational opportunity which shouldn’t be suppressed by a committee.

Putting this book behind the counter is like the Nazi’s burning the Tora to protect German’s from Jewish lies. It’s time this State wake up and realize not all families are made up of a white mother, father and 6 kids. It should not be necessary for LGBT Utahns to check their civil rights at the school house door because it differs from an immoral committee which clearly doesn’t represent the interests of the child.

Pete… When you were in the Army, didn’t you take an oath to Defend the Constitution?  An oath you swore during your election campaign you’ve never renounced?  Last I checked, both the 1st Amendment as well as the 14th Amendment were part of that constitution.  Looks like another failed campaign promise by a politician.  Shocking!
