Here are some of the week’s most notable quotes culled from news reports from across Texas, and beyond.
If a proposal that is discriminatory or inconsistent with our values were to become law (in Texas), that would certainly be a factor considered when thinking about awarding future events.
When it comes to sex education, Texas is failing our students and their families. We have to trust young people with the information they need to make wise decisions about their reproductive health and their future. Ignorance won’t protect them.
Our state has become the poster child for abstinence-only-until-marriage sex education. [At the Legislature], it sometimes seems that sex education is a four-letter word to only be muttered in adult company.
There is not one single constitutional syllable about private schools. The Legislature has absolutely no authority over them. Such private voluntary assemblies are commonly religious in purpose and curriculum. For the state to insinuate itself into these spaces is egregious government overreach and violation of the religious liberty we cherish in this state.
This would be a hilarious trip back to Leave It To Beaver land if it weren’t so insulting and damaging. But it is.
