A mother who enrolled her kids in a musical theater program was shocked, shocked I tell you, to discover that gay people have infiltrated the world of performing arts. Who would have guessed? The mother went on Facebook to demand a refund, and the gay drama teacher responded wonderfully.
Hi Michael. Following our chat this week I have decided that [Precious child 1] and [Precious child 2] will not be attending class on Monday. You have a strong reputation for performing arts which encouraged me to sign my children up for classes. I have recently learned of your lifestyle and as a Christian I cannot allow my children to be influence by unconventional idea. It is our belief that a man should marry a woman. I look forward to receiving my deposit which you may post to me via cheque. Regards [Children's mother]
Gay drama teacher:
Hi [Children's mother],
I would be lying if I said I was disappointed to hear this. I pride my students on the respect and love they have for others and their passion for equality. You would only be infringing on our family. As far as I’m aware, my sexuality doesn’t effect my ability to teach, just like it wouldn’t effect a doctor’s ability to treat one of your children should they become unwell.
I’m sure your children’s health would come first should they need emergency treatment, or would you need to check their doctors lifestyle prior to their life saving operation? I wish you luck in finding an appropriate stage school that meets your needs, however from experience I find that theatre without gays is like cooking without spices (just my opinion). I hear StageCoach are enrolling but there teachers have been known to wear mixed fabrics which I’m sure you are aware is forbidden in the bible (Leviticus 19:19).
Please feel free to come see our Musical ‘Happy Days,’ confetti will be used in the finale but please rest assure this is not an attempt to corrupt your Christian lifestyle. We just love glitter.
Unfortunately deposits are non refundable but don’t worry, your deposit has been donated to StoneWall, an LGBT charity. Regards Michael
By the way, the musical the kids were enrolled in is Rent, which is about gay and bisexuals in NYC at the beginning of the HIV/AIDS crisis in the 1980s.
