Disgruntled parents sue California school district over lesbian pastor talk

The AP reports: The Castro Valley School District is facing a lawsuit by dozens of parents who want more information about a recent school talk by a lesbian pastor.

Pastor Arlene Nehring of the Eden Church of Hayward spoke at Castro Valley High during its annual Days of Diversity program.

Some parents became upset after an anonymous e-mail was sent, claiming that Nehring gave step-by-step instructions on how to become gay and transsexual. Nehring denies those claims.

Now 31 parents have sued, saying the district failed to comply with requests to see all writings received and sent by school employees to and from Nehring and her church.

Interim schools superintendent Jerry Macy says officials have provided some information, but he says the request is too broad.

    So now there are quick and easy steps to become gay? It would have saved so much time and energy to have the easy method spelled out to me.

    Just how stupid are these parents? Maybe they are the ones that should be in school.

    What in the world is wrong with you parents? If you want your children to grow-up in a bubble, you should lock your doors and never let them leave the house. Of course they will have to leave the house sooner or later and because of the way you treated them, they’ll never come back.

    Your language and attitude only reinforces the point. Everyone has a right to utilize the legal system to be heard. If you want respect you must be willing to give it.
