THE GLOBE’S elitist and condescending editorial condemning my testimony at the Barbara Lenk hearing was certainly predictable (“Decision on Lenk should focus on her record, not her sexuality,’’ April 29). But I speak for countless parents across the Commonwealth. And, yes, the Governor’s Council needed to hear it.

Parents are sick and tired of the homosexual indoctrination process in the public schools, which now reaches into kindergarten with homosexual-themed story books and into middle schools with the setting up of gay-straight alliance clubs.

Lenk’s elevation to the Supreme Judicial Court would only serve to accelerate the homosexual indoctrination. Lenk prominently appeared in the homosexual-themed magazine Boston Spirit as an “openly gay’’ judge who was described as helping to “create a shift in the culture.’’ Her same-sex marriage reinforces a right invented by activist judges repudiating thousands of years of Western culture. She will be used as a new role model for schoolchildren, and we can expect more anti-family judicial activism down the road.

I testified before the council that the notion that one is born gay is a myth. But the Globe’s editorial assertion that homosexual behavior is like being black or Asian has become the party line.

We need less of this nonsense, not more of it.
