Judge upholds homosexual curriculum for Maryland schools

.- A Maryland Circuit Court judge has ruled in favor of a public school curriculum promoting homosexuality, bisexuality, anal intercourse, and transvestitism to 8th and 10th grade students.  The curriculum also teaches how to use condoms during unnatural sex acts and instructs students that homosexuality is innate.

Citizens for a Responsible Curriculum, the Family Leader Network and the Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays, represented by the Ann Arbor-based Thomas More Law Center, had asked Judge William J. Rowan, III to overturn a Maryland Board of Education ruling approving the Montgomery County school curriculum.  Some said the curriculum was adopted due to pressure from homosexual advocacy groups. 

The Thomas More Law Center argued that the curriculum did not teach factually correct material, citing a 2007 case in Maryland’s highest appellate court that decided that the belief in the innateness of homosexuality was not supported by credible evidence.

“Maryland law says that you have to teach something that is factually accurate,” said Brandon Bolling, the Thomas More Law Center attorney who argued the case. “They are not doing that, therefore it is illegal.”

274 Montgomery-area doctors also signed a petition objecting to the curriculum, which promotes the claim that the use of condoms prevents disease in anal intercourse.

Hayley Gorenberg, the deputy legal director of Lambda Legal, which was defending the course, claimed that the educational material comes from the mainstream medical consensus. “It is based on leading, mainstream medical consensus and promotes tolerance and understanding of people of every orientation and gender identity,” he said.

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center predicted what the ruling in favor of the homosexual lobby will result in, saying, “Judge Rowan’s ruling gives a green light to homosexual groups throughout Maryland to pressure school boards to adopt similar policies.” 

Thompson will meet with the consortium of pro-family groups next week regarding an appeal.
