Welcome to the David Parker Fund Web site. Our goal is to provide you with useful information about our situation, and we hope that you will consider supporting us.
Lexington Public Schools vs. Parker / Wirthlin Families
David & Tonia Parker and Robb & Robin Wirthlin are the parents who sued a Massachusetts school to defend their right as parents to be the primary directors of their children’s moral education. Their fight is your fight. As they protect their own parental rights, they are also protecting yours. They oppose hatred and the abuse of any human being because of their beliefs, lifestyles, sexual proclivities, or perceived gender.
At this site, you will learn about parental rights, true tolerance, and parental treatment by the Lexington school administration.
Thanks for visiting and we thank you in advance for your support.
What this case is about
This case is fundamentally about freedom of choice for parents to raise their children in the interest of their well being, health, happiness, growth and development as productive members of society. It is about maintaining parental sovereignty over one's children in private and public spaces - as parents are legally accountable and responsible for their own children. Therefore, this sovereignty should not be undermined by external authorities.
We all want what's best for our children; however, differences exist in how parents accomplish this goal and how they define what's best. The freedom of choice to define for their own families, what's best, and how to accomplish these goals, should extend to all parents regardless of color, culture, religion, or sexual orientation. Parents are indeed willing to sacrifice of themselves to attain these ends.
What we believe as parents
The boundaries of gender are given to each of us through nature by God. Transgenderism and unbounded sexual expression blur or obliterate God-given and nature dictated boundaries. While it is indeed true that there exists the freedom to cross those boundaries, we believe it is a treacherous path to follow. This is not the path of freedom that we offer to our four and six year old children. Parenting, for us, involves rules and boundaries. Complete freedom uncontrolled and unguided leads to confusion, darkness, and pain for children. The boundaries set by loving parents attempt to save children from such a fate. This applies to each one of us as creations of nature and children of God. While we hold these truths to be self- evident, we also maintain that others have the freedom to disagree.
