At least Dan Rogers was the one wearing the pants!

Re: Breaking Down Barriers, January 8th, 2010

It concerns me that the Mayor of Prince George, Dan Rogers, made the front page of Friday, January 8th's Citizen together with Travis Shaw, dressed to look like a woman. They were meeting at a local public school with the Gay-Straight Alliance youth group, that meets weekly. What kind of message does Dan Rogers convey to young people when he meets with a glamorous young man decked out to look like a female? It seems to me that the Mayors presence at this meeting shows that he endorses heterosexual, and homosexual youth meetings.

I presume the idea of these meetings is to ensure that heterosexual youth are made to feel that there is no difference between them and homosexual youth; when in actual fact homosexual behavior is extremely risky and can lead to HIV and AIDS, which can be fatal. It is beneficial for heterosexual youth to be in the company of those who may try to persuade them to become homosexual?

I resent my school taxes being used by School District 57 to promote gay/straight youth meetings. Neither, do I approve of Dan Rogers using his position as mayor to endorse the homosexual lifestyle, that may lead a young person to think it may be OK to try this lifestyle, since Dan Rogers gives the impression he finds nothing wrong with it!

I wonder why Dan Rogers did not inform the Prince George voters prior to the last municipal election, that if elected, he would march with the homosexuals in the Gay Pride Parade, and promote this lifestyle in the public school?

The public school's job is to teach children, not to push social change on a captive audience!
