David Parker, of Lexington, Mass., is itching for a fight. Last April Parker was arrested and charged with criminal trespass after he refused to leave a meeting at Estabrook Elementary School, where his son went to kindergarten.

Parker was there to complain about "the teaching of homosexuality" to the class, according to a report in World Net Daily. Parker's son brought home a book, "Who's in a Family?" and Parker hit the roof when he read two examples featuring gay parents. He wouldn't leave the meeting.

The school board believes Parker set out to get arrested and make a national wave.

Parker's trial was supposed to begin this week, but it's been postponed. A no-trespassing order forbids him from setting foot on school property.

Hey, if Parker wants to yank his kid from kindergarten, let him. But his attorney, Jeffrey Denner, says it's a bigger issue. Parker wants to "establish a dialogue to protect his own children and other children as well."

Sounds like Parker wants to be the village chief. Thanks, but we can take care of our own kids just fine.
