Personal threat to Lexington schools superintendent over homosexual programs sparks Boston media
Local CBS-TV, Fox-TV, others at David Parker's house for comments
But threats against Parkers were ignored
Posted: Tuesday, April 8, 2008
Last week, Lexington, MA, schools superintendent Paul Ash announced that he was going to institute a homosexual-affirming curriculum in the Lexington elementary school where David Parker's children attend. Citing the latest federal court opinion in the David Parker civil rights case. Ash stated that he would not allow parents to opt-out or even be notified -- even in elementary school. This caused an outrage that quickly spread across the country.
Following last week's announcement, a little-known New Jersey-based Internet radio talk-show host, Hal Turner, posted the home address of Superintendent Paul Ash on a website and said that he advocates "force and violence" to give parents rights. Ash apparently notified the police and the media, and Sunday night the local CBS TV affiliate, Channel 4, came to David Parker's house. On Monday, Fox News and Channel 7 were there.
Over the weekend, the Hal Turner Show's website posted Ash's photo and home address along with the statement:
Parker had never heard of the talk-show or the website (nor have we). However, he acknowledged on WBZ-TV that because parents have no longer any legal protection for their children, many are becoming agitated.
Threats against Parkers and others
It's rather surprising that the stream of threats and intimidation against Parker and others has been completely ignored by the media. For example, one homosexual website advocated killing the Parkers and Wirthlins, and joked that they'd like to drop pianos on them.
The Parkers have also been the subject of obscene, threatenhing phone calls such as this one.
In addition , the homosexual group "KnowThyNeighbor" published and posted the names and addresses, by town, of all the signers of the recent marriage petition and encouraged pro-homosexual activists to contact them.
There's long been a severe double standard from hostile public officials and even police that parents and pro-family advocates have endured for years.
What will get the attention of these people?
Certainly, no one is advocating violence against Paul Ash or anyone else. But the question persists: If there is no longer a normal rule of law, what will get their attention?
Interestingly, the same pro-homosexual books now in the Parker's school were quickly removed from an English elementary school after local Muslims became agitated, as reported in British newspapers. It makes one wonder.
