Whose views?

In the absence of biblical convictions you will go the way of culture. - Sally Carkson.

Are we then surprised when kindergartners are taught this.
David and Tonia Parker of Lexington, Mass., saw a red flag when their son came home from kindergarten last January with a "diversity book bag" that included Who's in a Family, a book promoting acceptance of gay marriage.
That it will eventually lead to this (Time cover story, reg. req'd)

Here's an interesting quote from the first article "The Parent Trap" in answer to the parent's complaints about what is being taught.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts said the school is on sound legal ground (no surprise there), arguing that "public education would grind to a halt if parents had the right to demand classes tailored to each child based on the parent's moral views."
If the parent's moral view isn't taught then whose is?

(HT: Albert Mohler who is encouraging every parent to read the Parent Trap article.)
