Media release parents approval required for gay promotion in schools

Family First Senator Bob Day has called on the Education Minister to cease funding an in-school gay promotion program, pending a “Parent Poll” approval from parents.

“Misleadingly called ‘Safe Schools’, the program targets children as young as 11 and refers children to websites supporting all manner of LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender and Intersex) behaviour,” Senator Day said.

Taken from the “Minus 18” website connected to the Safe Schools program, which instructs young children in the dangerous practice of chest binding.

“I have asked the government to cease funding this gay lifestyle promotion program as it is clearly not supported by parents. Some families have started withdrawing children from schools engaged in the pro-LGBTI program. Such a controversial program should not have been rolled out without a vote of parents,” he said.

“The government should immediately:

1. Freeze funding and withdraw permission for the program to be used in schools until all school parents have been given a vote on the matter. Such a poll should to be run by a body independent of the school and the organisers of the program; and

2. Refuse to fund the program running in any more schools unless all school parents have given prior permission (via an independently run vote) for the program to commence.”

“Many parents don’t have the opportunity to send their children to another school. They are in a bind. Some are pulling children out and starting to home-school. Parents must have a say in what their children are taught – especially when it infringes their family’s values.”

“Many families do not talk about boyfriends and girlfriends in the pre-teen years, yet some schools usurp parental rights and responsibilities by pushing gay lifestyles and gender confusion on innocent children.”

Senator Day offered support in the Senate for whatever measures needed to be taken to implement the Parent Poll program.

Senator Day appeared on 9 News (15/02/2016) to discuss the program:

When Is The Best Time To Paint The Exterior Of Your House?

Do you want to spruce up your home? If you do, then the best way for you to do that is through painting the exterior of your house. However, when is the best time for you to do it? Well, the answer to that question is during summer and late spring. Why, you ask? It’s because it is the time when the temperature is warm and the precipitation is low. What does this mean? This only means that the paint would be able to cure at the right rate.
On the other hand, if you were not able to do it during that time, then you can also do it during fall. The reason for this is that during fall, the difference between the lows and highs is lesser as compared to the other seasons. Why is it a good thing? It is a good thing because it is not ideal to paint a house when the temperature reaches 100° during the day and it drops down to 40° at nighttime. It is also the time when the temperature is just moderate, not too hot and not too cold. After all, the manufacturers of paints these days recommends a minimum of temperature outside for paintings.

Now, if you would be opting to latex paint for the exterior of your house, then a temperature of 50° – 85° would be perfect. After all, painting the exterior of your house when the weather is too hot may result to the paint drying too fast and when that happened, the brush marks can be seen. On the other hand, painting when the weather is too cold can result to either peeling or cracking because the paint would not be able to adhere to the surface well. So, if you have plans to paint the exterior of your house, make sure that you do it at the right time and at the right temperature.
