Who is going to raise the better children?

The video above is one that I watched earlier today that had me completely stunned at the idiocy of the very vocal right wing minority. This woman is concerned that her child will he harmed by being taught yoga at school as part of a life skills program in the region. How would yoga hurt her child? She sees the Hindu association as a problem because it isn’t Christian. Hindu is a religion yes, but the yoga aspect of it relates to balance in life and open mindedness which I think is severely lacking in this woman’s version of Christianity. Yes she is part of a very vocal, very small group in the area but of course she wasn’t content to just remove her child from the classes (god forbid, religion aside that the kids get a bit of exercise) but she had to try and get the classes stopped.

By contrast, the video below is amazing. Noah St John is a 15 year old man being raised by two loving lesbians who was given the NPR Snap Judgement Performance of the Year with this beautiful story about his two mother’s. His passion and confidence tell an even better story of being raised in a loving and healthy way. To the ultra wingnut religious types out there, you are teaching your children hate. Any version of God that I’ve heard of would be bitterly disappointed in you.

    Sometimes the stupidity of the human race astounds me. That’s all I can say on the first video. I love the second one, it’s nice to see someone so impassioned about things that should be not just human rights but just something general. I keep thinking, not to sound all p.s.a but I’m supposed to be of the generation that’s more accepting of those around us but every once in a while(thanks to parents I feel) you have other kids who are the polar opposite of Noah. Kids who feel the need to shout vitriol. I still wonder, years from now what my future children will encounter & what will there friends parents be like?

    Sometimes it is very tiresome to live here in the US.

    We used to think the Christian loonies were just a minority here in the USA
    until they took over the Republican party. Now they cause a lot of trouble…that’s what two generations of cuts to education got us.
