I have a sincere concern. I would prefer to come in and speak face-to-face about this matter, but my work schedule is extremely hectic this month.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I would like to humbly express our disappointment that it appears that Bonn International School allows a sinful activity (according to our faith) to be openly promoted and celebrated in the open areas of the Agora Building.
We are among many Christians at BIS. Surely you must know that the propaganda in the Agora Building would be offensive to Christians, as well as those of other faiths, who teach that homosexual behavior is wrong. I have spoken to many other parents, and they all agree.
While I assume that those who allow this over-sexualization of our children do so with good intent (maybe to promote mutual respect for one another and to condemn bullying), we find this pro-homosexual propaganda offensive and disrespectful.
We are teaching Biblical truths to our children at home, instructing them in the ways of God. But the school celebrates homosexuality with rainbow flags hung next to nation flags (which is a disgrace to all nations, in my opinion), school-endorsed clubs, and propaganda in the passageway displays. On "Gay Day," when our youngest daughter was eating with a group, there was even a teacher who approached them, proudly extended her arm with a rainbow painted on it, and said, "Look! I've got a rainbow!" This is blatant, "in your face" disrespect to people of faith. I hope you would agree that it would be best for things of this nature to be taught only at home by parents, according to our faith and our values.
Thank you for your time, and we humbly ask for your consideration.
Your Servant in Christ,
Marty L. Smith
