Supreme Court Rejects Cases Dealing with Same-sex Families in Schools

david-parker.jpgThe U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear two cases filed by Lexington couples who objected to same-sex families being discussed in their children’s elementary school classrooms.

The families claimed gay-themed books on a public school’s reading list violated their First Amendment right to free exercise of religion. The books were not required reading.

A federal appeals court had previously dismissed a lawsuit by David Parker, saying the inclusion of books that included gay people or relationships did not violate the parents’ First Amendment right to free exercise of religion.
 
Jeffrey Denner, an attorney for the couples, tells The Boston Globe says the couples are still weighing their options. The Parkers say they are home schooling their children.
