Gay Teacher Promotes Homosexuality to 3rd Graders

A North Carolina elementary school teacher has resigned after his decision to read a gay-themed children’s book to his third-grade class led to controversy in the small town of Efland.

Omar Currie said he read his students the book “King and King,” a fairy tale about two princes having a “love” encounter, after he perceived negative gay stereotyping in his class.

Currie said that he was inspired to teach the little kids about two men “hooking up” because a boy in his class acted a little feminine.

“When I read the story, the reaction of parents didn’t come into my mind,” Currie, 25, said Tuesday.
“In that moment, it just seemed natural to me to read the book and have a conversation about treating people with respect. My focus then was on the child, and helping the child.”
The thought that the child just acted feminine could have just stayed as it is. A thought. Some kids act different than others. But this teacher overstepped his bounds and pushed an idea into the under-aged child’s mind. Some could call it “turning out” the child and other impressionable children in the class.

Currie claimed his reasons for reading the book was because he knew what it is like to be bullied.

Growing up gay and black in a small town in the eastern part of the state, his memories of middle school are of being a frequent target for teasing and slurs.
Within hours after reading the book to his students, Currie said he got a call from the school’s principal requesting a meeting in her office for the following morning.

The parents of three children soon filed written complaints to a school review committee, which twice upheld the use of the book after heated public meetings.

But the school’s principal also issued a new directive that teachers must submit an advance list of all books they intend to read with students to their parents.

Currie has resigned from Efland-Cheeks Elementary School “because he felt administrators did not support his decision to influence little impressionable children” with homosexual propaganda.

Parents felt their children should be learning more important things like math, reading, and writing.

The school’s assistant principal, Meg Goodhand, who lent Currie the copy of the book he read to his class, has also submitted a letter of resignation.

Currie also said he was “intimidated” by some school administrators because they didn’t agree with his decision, and was asked not to speak to the press about the furor over the book.

Currie said, “I felt they were trying to silence the conversation.”
“King & King” tells the story of a crown prince who has “never cared much for princesses,” and ends up marrying another prince. The book, first published in the Netherlands, was released in the United States in 2002 by Tricycle Press in Berkeley.

The American Library Assn. notes that it was one of the most challenged books in the country in 2003 and 2004.

    Why is acknowledging that some people love people who are the same gender seen as “promoting homosexuality?”

    • gman ingram

      Cuz it is dummy

    • Momo Black

      There was mention of them hooking up u fuckin retard

  • Jessica Castañeda

    There is no way that book was about hooking up. It was a fairytale. To teach tolerance and acceptance. It shouldn’t be the schools job to teach kids how to be good kind people. But obviously the parents are doing a terrible job at it. Everyone complaining makes me sick. Grow a freaking heart and stop hiding behind your religion!

    • ✨?Truth Be Told?✨

      I feel you Jessica, but he can not make those types of decisions for other people’s children. ?

    • gman ingram

      You are apart of the problem. Its people like you thats got the world fucked up.

    • Momo Black

      Shut up idiot

  • Taty

    Why couldn’t he just read a book about bullying? Why would assume the kid is gay?

    • gman ingram

      He wanna fuckem

    • Keith Dixon

      Its crazy. I said the same thing to someone just minutes ago about this.

      I agree. I would’ve done a lecture on bullying and the individualism in every human being but this where he went wrong tho: “Currie said that he was inspired to teach the little kids about two men “hooking up” because a boy in his class acted a little feminine.”

      Number one, he is misleading and miseducating the kids with his lecture. If this boy is feminime or flamobouyant, why are you promoting homosexuality or even same-sex relations? He’s not even sexually active, let alone interested in a relationship with a boy or girl yet, therefore he’s not gay.

      That’s where gays piss me off. Homosexuality is who you fuck. Its not what you wear, its not who you mimmick, its not Vogue, its not decorating and make up.

      Thats why so many people feel an agenda is being pushed. You can be feminime and love women and masculine and love men. Gays are just as bad as straight people when it comes to promoting and/or twisting a false projection of what “Gay” is.

    If my child was in that school, I would be very angry that they have a gay person teaching young children!!!!!!

    • DiaShoni

      Why?

      • Mary Hodges

        Because I am a Born Again believer in JESUS CHRIST and in His WORD homosexuality is an abomination to GOD.IT’S A SIN AND IF THEY DON’T REPENT AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS THEY WILL GO TO HELL,SAYS GOD’S WORD,NOT ME !!!

        • DiaShoni

          Jesus never said anything about it, though…the human men who (poorly) translated the original text did that. Not to mention, being Christian does not mean everyone is, or should be.

          • Ely

            And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
            Matthew 19:4‭-‬6 KJV
            Jesus did speak about homosexual he said that God created man and female to be one.

            Omg& Santa says u better not pout & u better not cry…..who translated that?

        • Keith Dixon

          Now this makes you a stupid bitch. I can understand being angry with someoneone teaching your kids homosexuality but their personal business has nothing to do with them teaching. Liars, thieves, adulterer, gluts are all teachers. Why dont you have an issue with them teaching if its about religious purposes?

    Gotta check under the bed tonight, the boogie man might be under there. Oh, I just made the boogie man up, just like the author of this piece. Except he never takes responsibility for his mistruths.
