Mother's/Father's Day Ends in School

High school game, short interview for my youngest, then car trouble, so this is a very brief post.

OK, when will it be enough for you?

Easter for the most part went out when I was a kid. Christmas is hanging on by a thread. Fundamentalists engage in their annual anti-Halloween campaigns. First graders learn one and only one thing about George Washington - that he owned slaves (My youngest was the first one to inform me that this was the only thing that he knew about the Father of Our Nation).

There are of course more, but you had to know that this one was coming:

Honor thy Father and thy Mother no longer in school - We have to provide for same-sex couples and can't let anyone feel as if he or she is missing anything.

"An elementary school in Nova Scotia has made a curious decision to cancel Mother’s Day and Father’s Day celebrations and to, instead, replace them with a more benign “Family Day” commemoration. The full name of the holiday the school has chosen to observe is the International Day of Families, an annual event that is recognized by the United Nations (it falls on May 15).

Astral Drive Elementary School has caught the ire of some parents, though, who see the change in celebration as unneeded and over-the-top. While the change has been on the books for a few years, it’s just now gaining media attention.

The UN Family Day is more than creepy. It looks like Agenda 21 and the Final Solution for families all wrapped up in one.

The U.N. has more about this intriguing holiday:

The International Day of Families is observed on the 15th of May every year. The Day was proclaimed by the UN General Assembly in 1993 with resolution A/RES/47/237 and reflects the importance the international community attaches to families. The International Day provides an opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families and to increase knowledge of the social, economic and demographic [Catch that one? Families should be smaller, no doubt] processes affecting families.

In its resolution, the General Assembly also noted that the family-related provisions of the outcomes of the major United Nations conferences and summits of the 1990s and [The following is just droll] their follow-up processes continue to provide policy guidance on ways to strengthen family-centred components of policies and programmes as part of an integrated comprehensive approach to development. [What the hell is that supposed to mean?*]

*With the influence of the Left in Academia came the never-ending deluge of nonsensical descriptions that would make Alexander Haig look like a blunt speaker. (Note that Haig also has spoken as an advocate of Agenda 21 and related schemes - but that is for another post)

The International Day of Families has inspired a series of awareness-raising events, including national family days. In many countries, that day provides an opportunity to highlight different areas of interest and importance to families. Activities include workshops and conferences, radio and television programmes, newspaper articles and cultural programmes highlighting relevant themes..........."

So instead of making something nice for your Mom or another female family member like Grandma or Aunt Gertrude, our kids get workshops, propaganda on smaller families (As if the Western world is not already  facing a major crisis of declining birth rates), teachings about fake marriages, etc.

As I wrote in the beginning, I have no time tonight.

At what point will you have had enough?
