In a letter to the editor, Soheil Zendeh points out the many untruths which Jacoby (who's rantings are picked up by a number of anti-gay sites) stated in his OpEd. Soheil correctly points out what we have know all along:
David Parker, the Lexington father, did not find ''himself in a war with his local school board." He and his clique of fundamentalists staged an action, complete with videotaping of the events.
That David Parker, Article 8 and Massresistance, the unholy trinity, orchestrated the whole disgusting event which lead to the media circus that the Westboro Baptist Church eventually participated in.
Where are we heading? Well, in December 2003, a child In Louisiana was scolded by the assistant principal because he had two mommies and told another classmate about them:
"I was concerned when the assistant principal called and told me my son had said a word so bad that he didn't want to repeat it over the phone," said Sharon Huff, the second-grader's mother.This is what Jacoby, Parker, Article 8 and Massresistance wants to happen in Massachusetts.
"But that was nothing compared to the shock I felt when my little boy came home and told me that his teacher had told him his family is a dirty word. No child should ever hear that, especially not from a teacher he trusted and respected."
