Wisconsin School Board Votes to Reject Parental Complaint About ‘Two Mom Story’

Two MommySUPERIOR, Wisc. — The school board in Superior, Wisconsin voted last week to reject a complaint filed by an unidentified parent seeking the removal of a book that promotes homosexuality.

The complaint was lodged against the book, “Emma and Meesha My Boy: A Two Mom Story”, which is being used in elementary school classrooms as early as 1st grade.

The book, which is several years old and popular in the homosexual community, is designed to expand children’s understanding and definition of what constitutes a family. Emma, the little girl in the story, has two mothers who teach her how to kindly treat her pet cat. Well-known actress and homosexual activist Rosie O’Donell stated years ago, “I read it—I loved it—[my partner’s daughter] Chelsea reads it every night.”

“This is Emma. She lives with her two moms and a chubby housecat,” the book begins. “Just so you know who’s who, let me tell you that one of the moms is Mama and the other is Mommy. That makes two.”

Superintendent Janna Stevens explained following the complaint that the book can be found in several school and classroom libraries, but is not part of the district’s curriculum. This past week, the Superior School Board voted 5-1 to reject the parents wish to pull the book from the libraries, expressing that one complaint was not sufficient grounds for removal.

The lone dissenting vote on the board was Steve Stupak, who stated that he believes the book is targeting too young of an audience,

“Older children, I think, can make their own decisions,” Stupak said during the board meeting. “In this particular case, I don’t think it’s a good idea.”

Stupak, though, is not the only dissenting voice. David Weigand, a father of five, local businessman and former school board member in West Bend, finds the book and the school district’s actions “reprehensible.”

“Many school boards do not accurately reflect the views of their respective community. They often impose their own agenda,” he said in an interview.

Weigand believes that voter apathy allows such individuals to remain in positions of influence despite how incongruous their views may be with the public at large.

“Too many parents are either unaware or are too busy to see what’s going on and try to change things,” he stated.

“Our children should be encouraged to build strong healthy families. The basis of such has always been one man and one woman in lifelong fidelity. That is what is proven to work.” Weigand continued. “It is time for parents to take their schools back and get involved.”

As previously reported, in 2013, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued a school district in Utah for removing a book from its elementary school libraries that promoted homosexuality. The book “In Our Mother’s House” was initially taken off the shelves after a group of parents submitted a petition to the Davis School District expressing their disgust at its content. The four elementary schools that carried the book, however, placed the book behind the counter, so it could still be borrowed if requested and with parental consent.

Throughout the lawsuit, attorneys for the Davis School District argued that the book violated the state’s sexual education law, which prohibits any “advocacy of homosexuality.” The ACLU and various homosexual groups continued to put pressure on the schools to replace the book anyway, and the district agreed to a settlement, while contending that the decision wasn’t a total loss because parents could still block their children from checking out certain books at the library.

    West Bend is hundreds of miles away from Superior, Wisconsin.

    I don’t know what happened to my previous comments.

    Gays in conspiracy with Liberal cooperation have taken control of our schools and our children, using our schools for indoctrination-recruiting centers for their perverse lifestyle choice, even offering how-to classes and encouraging sexual experimentation. We have given our children to gay militants and with barley a complaint. This school board is part of the pro-gay and anti-Christ conspiracy to steal the souls of our children.

  • Frank

    Won’t take the book out. Take the kids out of the school. Teachers won’t have any kids to teach. School board can take their perversion and shovel it.

  • Gary

    Remove your children from such government schools. Withdraw your support for such government schools. Vote against school bonds. Vote out school board members who advocate for homosexuality. Petition to have school taxes and school budgets lowered. Vote against any politician who is pro-homosexual. Complain in writing and in person directly to school principals and teachers.

      in other words, be the town crank.

          Barking Dawg has no clue. His Atheism is his life.

            I am not an atheist. I am much, much worse. I am not your brand of Christian.

        • BarkingDawg

          In other words a fundie crank who wants to outlaw science and institute a Christian theocracy.

          • SteveN

            Normal, not radical

      • Fundisi

        So it is okay for Christians to have their children in schools that oppose their faith and impose sinful values on them? Christians should be okay with that?

        • BarkingDawg

          You seem perfectly willing to impose your beliefs on others. . .

      Let’s all go live in a bubble, where we’re only surrounded by our own perfection and blessings and feelings of superiority!

  • James Grimes

    No Christian parent should be sending their child(ren) to any government – run school. The purposes of each are in conflict.

    “the Superior School Board voted 5-1 to REJECT the parents wish to pull the book from the libraries, expressing that ONE complaint was not sufficient grounds for removal”.
    Amazing hypocrisy! How many times have we seen the Bible, the Ten Commandments, a simple picture of Jesus, and even Christmas carols about the birth of the Messiah yanked on the basis of a single complaint! Agenda, anyone?

    • Jeff Varney

      It’s indeed an agenda and 100% hypocrisy, Trumpster. That should explain why numerous Wisconsin citizens voted for a lesbian as their U.S. Senator.

    • Ambulance Chaser

      The difference is that pictures of Jesus or the Ten Commandments on the walls of a public school are unconstitutional.

        Facts, why do you have to keep bringing up facts?

    Maybe it’s because I getting old, but I just don’t remember any instruction about what a family was when I was in Elementary School back in the 50s.

  • BreakingDeadMen

    Who needs the Taliban when we have folks like this right here at home? Well done, school board.

  • JeromeMac

    Sigh, it wouldn’t promote homosexuality. Maybe promote understanding that some people are born gay and have gay parents. As awful as that must seem to some.

  • April J

    Why don’t we all just close our eyes and cover our ears and pray real hard and maybe gay people will no longer exist! Wait…that’s never going to happen… the sooner a child learns that the world consists of humans who are different from them…the less chance they won’t have a complete meltdown the second they actually have to encounter the real world around them.
