The Nov. 7 commentary by Todd Dorman on parents’ rights mentioned that conservatives are uncomfortable with the changes in the classrooms and libraries. The question of how our children should be taught and the books that are placed in school libraries is a question of our moral values and duties and not about being comfortable. It is a question of right wrong, not about my level of comfort.
Which of these are you comfortable with?
A billion Chinese have allowed a genocide to occur against the Uyghurs because they have refused to abandon their religion and way of life.
The last half of the 20th century saw the Soviet Union torture and kill millions of their own people because they didn’t agree with the government. Neighbors spied on one another to remove those who disagreed with the current government policy.
Lastly, before and during World War II Germans society encouraged the Holocaust to promote the Arian race. They began with gay people and Jews and continued with others who opposed their goals as a society.
None of the above. They are all wrong.
In all of the instances (and many others) the “society” was and is comfortable with these atrocities. Choosing to convince our young children to be comfortable with the wrongs of this world is unacceptable. Are you prepared to stay comfortable or stand up for what is right?
