Cert. Filed In Case On Parental Objection To School Talking About Gay Couples

A petition for certiorari in Parker v. Hurley was filed earlier this month according to the New England Blade. In the case, the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals rejected objections by parents that they were not given an opportunity to exempt their elementary school children from exposure to books depicting same-gender couples. (See prior posting.) The families say that their right to direct the religious upbringing of their children was infringed.
