an apparent effort to normalize homosexual behavior, a school in Emmaus, Pennsylvania, showed school children videos produced by LGBT activists.

Without telling parents.

The parents now have deployed a legal team to demand that school officials give them access to the material.

“I am writing to request that the East Penn School district immediately provide to all parents requesting them the specific links to the four pro-homosexuality YouTube videos shown by the district to 2,800 high school students at Emmaus High School, as part of the district’s ‘Unity Week’ and ‘Day of Silence’ promotional activities,” said the legal demand sent to East Penn School District Supt. Michael Schilder.

The letter from Richard Mast Jr. of Liberty Counsel advised the district that without a swift, satisfactory response, Liberty Counsel “will take further action to prevent irreparable harm to the rights of local parents.”

As part of a program by the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network, GLSEN, the school showed videos “normalizing homosexuality and gender dysphoria, all without the knowledge of many parents,” Liberty Counsel said.

The YouTube videos were followed by Emmaus High School Principal Kate Kieres reading statistics from a GLSEN promotion of homosexual behavior.

The Liberty Counsel letter said: “Numerous students have privately confirmed that they found the district’s promotion of ‘Day of Silence’ and mandatory viewing of the videos unwelcome. They do not wish to be subjected to this in the future.”

After four months, Emmaus High School in Emmaus, Penn. finally released links to four videos it showed to students this past spring, after a Christian law firm intervened to defend the rights of parents to know what the public school is showing their children. The school defended the videos as anti-bullying, but they promoted a one-sided agenda with which parents may not agree. The school had refused to make the videos public, arguing that they were students' private work.

"The URLs, which parents and the [American Family Association of Pennsylvania] had been told were all about anti-bullying, proved to be quite the opposite. They were very much promoting homosexuality and transgenderism to a captive audience of children," Dianne Gramley, president of the Pennsylvania chapter of the American Family Association (AFA), said in a news release Friday. She reported that parents had requested the videos going back to May, shortly after they were shown to a captive audience of students.

Withholding the videos and the appropriateness of the videos are two separate issues. But the withholding prevented considering the appropriateness (and was a sign the videos were inappropriate, IMO).

I don't know how much more needs to be said to kids than the following: don't bully other kids. Don't do it to gay kids, don't do it to straight kids, don't do it to the band geeks, don't do it to the freshmen, don't do it to the foster kid, don't do it to the kid with glasses, etc. First offense-spend your Saturday cleaning up a city park.

But the school should know that if you have to hide a video you are showing the kids from their parents, there is a problem.
