MASSACHUSETTS SCHOOL BOARD INSISTS ON CONDOMS FOR FIRST GRADERS
School arrogance: Provincetown to distribute condoms to elementary school students over parents' objections. Even left-wing Gov. Patrick speaks out against policy.
MassResistance tells us "When Gov. Deval Patrick (and his leftist challengers for Governor) oppose the latest liberal lunacy, it must be bad."
The overwhelming arrogance of school officials in Massachusetts and their absolute hostility to parents with traditional values is only getting worse since the David Parker court ruling, which gave the schools a green light to teach homosexuality even in Kindergarten without parents' knowledge or consent.
Now it's condoms for elementary school children against parents' objections. As today's Boston Globe put it:

Parents, official criticize policy
Students in Provincetown - from elementary school to high school - will be able to get free condoms at school under a recently approved policy that takes effect this fall. The rule also requires school officials to keep student requests secret, and ignore parents' objections.
"The intent is to protect kids,'' said School Superintendent Beth Singer, who wrote the policy that the Cape Cod town's School Committee unanimously passed two weeks ago. "We know that sexual experimentation is not limited to an age, so how does one put an age on it?'' . . .
Several high schools in the state make condoms available to students. While complete data were unavailable yesterday, Provincetown's policy to make them available with no age restriction, and declare parents' objections irrelevant, seemed to set it apart.
Jeanmarie Kaeselau, 41, who has a fifth- and an eighth-grader in the school system, said she would be uncomfortable with her younger son coming home with school-issued condoms.
"That's a little weird,'' she said. "I'd rather have him come to me.''
But Kaeselau will not have a say. The policy, first reported in the Provincetown Banner, keeps parents from knowing if their children receive condoms, and mandates that school officials can choose to supply them even if parents object.
The school board has recieved calls and visits from elected
officials and will discuss the topic at a meeting
