Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays sent flyer home with students
Some parents with children who attend one high school in Montgomery County are upset over a flyer sent home with quarterly report cards that came from a group that says no one is born gay.
The organization is called Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX). It's a national nonprofit group that believes homosexuality is a lifestyle choice. PFOX says it wants to create a space where formerly gay people can avoid discrimination.
Last week, a PFOX flyer was included in take-home materials given to students at Albert Einstein High school in Kensington. Legally, the school must distribute take-home materials from any nonprofit group, regardless of the content, according to school officials. The take-home materials can be distributed as many as four times per year.
Some parents and students are upset over the PFOX flyer. The PFOX website includes articles that give advice on how to make it harder for schools to create clubs such as a gay-straight alliances, and how to determine if a homosexual agenda is being taught in a school.
