Strongly oppose

SB656 is divisive and threatens the free-thinking society we need in our country.  Censorship of diverse ideas in our schools only creates problems when children/students are not encouraged to think things through and come to their own conclusions about societal norms.  Good citizens need to learn about diverse viewpoints in the presence of teachers who are trained to encourage debate on challenging subjects without prejudice.  I strongly oppose any attempts to restrict free-thinking in our schools!
