Cats and Dogs Sleeping Together

It’™s the end of the world. Yes, boys and girls are having fun, and evidently when that happens some religious types go out of their way to figure out whether the ‘œfun’ in question is sanctioned by the bible. And then. . . here comes the whining.

Commentary By: Steven Reynolds

It’™s the end of the world. Trying to top opposites day, and that thing where kids wear their clothes inside out, a Des Moines School has cross dressing day. Seems like a harmless way to spend a day during ‘œSpirit Week,’ but not according to some. To them this is a cause to be alarmed about. Straight from WorldNetDaily, attempting, as always, to take the title from the late great newspaper WeeklyWorldNews as the only accurate news source:

One parent, writing on a blog shortly after the cross-dressing promotion, hardly could contain the outrage.

In bold red type, the parent wrote, ‘œTUESDAY AT ONE OF OUR LOCAL HIGH SCHOOLS THEY HAD WHAT IS CALLED ‘GENDER BENDER DAY!’™ IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT THAT IS THEN LET ME EDUCATE YOU REAL QUICK ‘¦ IT IS WHERE THE BOYS DRESS LIKE GIRLS AND VICE VERSA!!’

The author continued, ‘œTHIS WAS ALLOWED AND CARRIED OUT AT OUR SCHOOLS!!! ‘¦ I IMMEDIATELY PULLED MY CHILD OUT OF THE DES MOINES PUBLIC SCHOOL! WE ARE NOW HOMESCHOOLING ALONG WITH SEVERAL HUNDRED OTHER PARENTS!’

‘œI AM GETTING MAD WHILE I TYPE THIS ‘¦ SO I NEED TO SHUT IT DOWN’¦’

Barb Heki is a board member for the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators, and was ecstatic about the parental response.

‘œI’™m just praising God there is a church with so many families that would take a biblical stand and decide that we’™re not going to put our children under anti-Christian indoctrination any longer. That’™s refreshing and encouraging,’ she told WND.

I can remember having all sorts of dress-up days back in the day, and that was over 30 years ago. Get a grip, folks. This is neither news nor is it something to be alarmed about.

You know, the alarm here may be Bill O’™Reilly’™s fault. Isn’™t he late in ramping up his annual ‘œWar on Christmas’ shtick? If he had that campaign going, maybe it would give some of these folks something to do.
