Pro-Homosexual Push Commonplace in Schools Coast to Coast

Homosexual Activists Transforming Public Schools Into Propaganda Factories

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"I don't think we're in Kansas anymore, Toto!" was Dorothy's famous line in The Wizard of Oz. It has become a classic, meant to convey the bewilderment of a person who suddenly realizes he's in a strange world and wonders how he got there.

For many parents in Massachusetts, California, and elsewhere in the U.S., the truth is beginning to dawn on them: They aren't living in Kansas anymore. Public education is being used to brainwash thousands of children -- even as young as kindergarten -- into believing that homosexuality is simply a normal and healthy variation of human sexuality.
To be sure, when it comes to the issue of homosexuality, Massachusetts and California have been East Coast-West Coast thoroughbreds that seem to be racing each other for the honor of wackiest state in the country.
Massachusetts got off to an early lead, where activists have had nearly carte blanche since the early 1990s. Thus, at John Glenn Middle School in Bedford, for example, pink triangles adorn classroom doors, and a rainbow flag flies over the school during "gay pride" festivities. In Newton, parents discovered that first-grade teacher David Gaita had "come out" to his students and told them he was homosexual and loved men "the way your mom and dad love each other." And in Brookline, MA lesbian eighth-grade teacher Deb Allen told National Public Radio that she explicitly teaches her students about lesbian sex, including the use of sex toys.
Meanwhile, in California, activists have been busily trying to turn that state's public school system into a re-education camp that would make Fidel Castro proud. According to the Campaign for Children and Families (CCF), a California-based pro-family group, the state may soon pass and implement three separate bills -- SB 1437, AB 606 and AB 1506 -- which would have a staggering impact on what public schools teach children.
CCF said that the combination of the three measures would force all California public schools to promote homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality to schoolchildren as young as kindergarten; require textbooks to promote these lifestyles; prohibit schools from sponsoring traditional school activities, such as school proms that vote for a boy-girl couple as prom "king" and "queen," or sports teams that "discriminate" against transgendered kids; and prohibit public schools from teaching that there is a natural family -- that is, a father, a mother and their children.
Court-Ordered Indoctrination
However, children don't have to live in California or Massachusetts to encounter the indoctrination process. In April, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), a homosexual pressure group, sponsored its 10th annual "Day of Silence," a nationwide school-based protest. Nearly 4,500 schools participated, according to GLSEN. In order to promote the homosexual lifestyle, more than 450,000 kids refused to speak a single word during the school day, often with the approval of school administrators and teachers.
In Wisconsin a group called Students for Unity used the Day of Silence to distribute a questionnaire at Port Washington High School. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, hundreds of students answered questions like, "If you have never slept with someone of your same gender, then how do you know you wouldn't prefer it?" and "Could it be that your heterosexuality is just a phase?"
Two teachers approved of the distribution of the questionnaire in their classes and followed up with discussions, said LifeSiteNews, even though parents were not informed about it beforehand.
Meanwhile, at Boyd County High School in Kentucky, students in Ann Qualls' English class were required to watch the first 15-20 minutes of Brokeback Mountain, a recent film about two homosexual sheepherders. While none of the movie's explicit sex scene was shown, the entire class was spent on the film -- again without the knowledge or approval of parents.
Boyd County is well known by pro-family groups for another reason: All students and faculty in Boyd County schools are under a court order to attend diversity sessions that normalize homosexuality.
The court order stems from an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawsuit filed against the school district three years ago, after the high school refused to allow the formation of a student homosexual-rights group on campus. Boyd County lost the suit, and in 2004 agreed to a settlement that included mandatory diversity sessions for faculty and students.
Training for students included a video stating that if one student speaks out against homosexuality to a gay student -- that is considered harassment. The offending student would be punished.
Some parents were angered by the agreement, and sued the school, demanding that their children be allowed to opt out of the training. In February, however, U.S. District Judge David Bunning ruled that all students and faculty must undergo the mandatory sensitivity training in order to make the schools safe for homosexual kids.
"Students have no religious or free-speech rights to opt-out of school training aimed at stopping anti-gay harassment in Boyd County schools," Bunning said. The judge added that anti-harassment training that deals with "actual or perceived sexual orientation" was "rationally related to a legitimate educational goal, namely to maintain a safe environment."
Making Schools Safer?
Homosexual activists have insisted for years that things like diversity training and gay pride events are necessary to prevent the harassment of kids who identify themselves as homosexual. This "safer schools" mantra carries emotional weight because most adults would probably agree that all students should feel safe in school.
In order to promote safety, however, activists often demand that schools indoctrinate students so that they accept homosexuality as normal. Following Bunning's ruling in February, for example, Sharon McGowan of the ACLU's Lesbian and Gay Rights Project swept aside suggestions that Boyd County could make schools safe without the mandatory diversity training sessions.
"Just telling students not to pick on others because of their sexual orientation or gender identity doesn't force them to change their beliefs, and the judge agreed with us about that," McGowan said. (emphasis added)
It is this type of agenda -- forcing students to change their beliefs about homosexuality -- that makes parents squeamish about groups like GLSEN.
But even if students don't end up altering their views about sexuality, the potential for confusion among children is startling. In New Jersey, for example, a school board decided that Eagleswood Township Elementary in West Creek could continue to use 71-year-old Lily McBeth as a substitute teacher -- even though he had undergone a sex change.
Parents who were both for and against rehiring McBeth spoke during an emotionally charged school board meeting in February, but in the end the board said his sex change did not affect his ability to teach children.
One worried parent, however, said: "Show me the research that says this will not affect my children. I will not allow my children to be placed in a petri dish and hope that it turns out fine."

Unlike Dorothy, though, parents in New Jersey and elsewhere don't have magic slippers to safely whisk their children back to Kansas. And, as it turns out, Kansas isn't so normal anymore, either.

There must be some of you who are thinking, these stories can't be true. They are. I got the transcript of the NPR show in which the 8th grade lesbian teacher stated that she describes how lesbians have sex.

The 7th graders in our town will be reading The Misfits this year in which a 7th grader "comes out".

This type of indoctrination of children is great advertisement for private schools. If I had children, they would never step foot in a public school. Many liberal schools insist that the reason they teach tolerance is to make the school "safe" for everyone. I do know that when someone stands up for their beliefs, and it is not the belief of everyone, that person is certainly not "safe" - they are singled out and sometimes bullied. Leave the teaching of sexuality issues to the parents, when THEY can decide the right time to tell THEIR children the facts. How dare the public school system step on the toes of the parents when it comes to teaching about sexuality!

In light of what the Scriptures teach about the last days...is anyone really surprised?

Matthew 24:12-13 (NIV) Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

Stand firm, brethren and sistren!

GLSEN (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network), which ran the conference that gave us FistGate, is responsible for starting this wave of "safe" education so they could have another way of bringing up homosexuality in the schools.

Please keep me informed about this piece of "literature" that is going to be read.

Who is the author of this "book"?

What town do you live in? (you don't have to answer due to potential threats you may recieve or as Know Thy Neighbor.org calls it, "dialog" you may face.)

Keep up your fight and DO NOT except this type of judicial approved cohersive indoctrination. Your children are YOUR children. PERIOD.

Good job Lynne!

Welcome to Know Thy Facts, Not Thy Neighbors.

How did you hear about this site and do you have a blog of your own?

You said:

No question about it. Teaching about sex, which is stomping on sacred ground for many, should be left up to those who are raising the child, NOT the government and their public school houses.

Great comments, LOVE the passion!

"The Misfits" is by James Howe. Here's a review found on GLSEN's website....

The Misfits
Howe, James
Oct 01, 2001

In this latest book by the popular author of Bunnicula and The Watcher, James Howe tackles the issue of name-calling and standing up to bias in middle school. With much humor and a voice accessible to middle school students, The Misfits explores themes including popularity, love and loss, and what it means to be different. The characters, including an open and unapologetically gay boy, are not cast as victims, but as self-empowered agents of change who will stand as solid role models to young readers everywhere.

See, it's a lead-in to the no-name-calling week that GLSEN started.

I live north of Boston and my children don't attend public school (in Massachusetts?! please!).

Oh dear, I thought you knew about Fistgate. I mentioned that for the benefit of other readers. You will be horrified at what was taught at this GLSEN conference at Tufts University in March of 2000 and you will be astounded at the role of the Massachusetts legislature in it.

Thanks for the info. I will be a FistGate guru (just in terms of spreading the news about it) in the next coming days.

but gay is ok.

I don't see any problems here.

gay should be made common so children who are gay don't feel horrible about themselves and commit suicide.

by trying to stop the "normalizing of a natural human condition, you're only making children targets for scorn and abuse.

and that's the only sin here.

as for sex education in schools, someone better teach these kids something, obviouly their parents are failing them. You can't keep them ignorant and then say "no abortions." It's not their fault if they don't know.

And the kids, they are having sex,be it straight, gay or anything else. They're doing it and you're only kidding yourself if you don't think your 'little angel' isn't.

Explain to me how being gay is O.K.

You also said:

Thats the problem. The government run public indoctrination camps (i.e. Public Schools) think the parents of their pupils are a bunch of idiots and do not CARE or RAISE their children right. A typical ASSUMPTION to JUSTIFY the spread of the cohersive indoctrination of homosexuality in schools.

Blogger Lynne said...

Ryan, in the first place, homosexuality is not a "natural human condition".

Secondly, those of us who knew about the indoctrination don't send our children to public schools.

Thirdly, if more parents of children in public schools understood the amount of indoctrination their children are receiving, they would either fight it or pull their kids out.

Scia,

Thanks for commenting on my post. I found you via The Pundit Review Blog. I have been listening to talk radio for many years and listen just about all day long. I do not have a blog.

I am a supporter of David Parker - I went to his court dates and rallies regarding his right as a parent to opt his son out of discussions in school in which he deemed inappropriate.

Another issue that gets to me is the annual "Day of Silence". I'll bet if some Christians proposed to have their "day", it would be rejected in a millisecond. I know, religion is supposed to be out of the public schools, but in some ways, homosexuality is a "religion" too.

Beth,

I am also a supporter of David Parker. He is a great person and a very well articulated one at that.

The Christians have their version of a Day of Silence and it is called The Day of Truth. I have a post on my blog titled "Dear Parents and Concerned Citizens". It is located in the March 2006 archives.

Continue with spreading the truth!!

Yes, we must get our children out of these indoctrination camps (public schools) because we as parents do not know what our children are being taught anymore.

What you call pro-homosexual push and activism is really just gays wanting equality. If they weren't so discrimminated against there wouldn't be these issues.

Scia and Lynne I have a few questions maybe you can answer. You seem to be in the know--

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's law. I have learned a great deal from you and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them:

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not to Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness (Lev. 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Lev.1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath Exodus 35:2 clearly states that he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that, even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Lev. 11:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree.
Can you settle this? Are there "degrees" of abomination?

7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27 How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? (Leviticus 24:10- 16)? Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws (Lev. 20:14)?

I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Ninety-eight percent of parents have no how many free gay teen chat rooms are out there
or whats going on in their schools,". We know we've got a problem
when they prosecute you if talk about God anywhere near a school, but
it's OK to teach students that gay anal sex
is an acceptable method of birth control.

Newly proposed state legislation would ban anything that
exposes students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade
to homosexuality.

"Homosexuality, bisexuality, that's something that should
be left to be taught at home and not at our schools,
" said Rep. Stacey Campfield, R-Knoxville, author of the legislation.

The bill, however, would allow for the teaching of heterosexuality.

"Without heterosexuality you wouldn't be able to teach biology,
" Campfield explained.

He also added keeping heterosexuality on the books would protect
ebony teens from litigation.

"'Jack and Jill went up the hill' - some organizations say you
can't teach that because it pushes a heterosexual agenda," he said.

The initiator behind a slew of unsuccessful yet headline-capturing
bills, Campfield also has proposed replacing the state tax on food
by taxing pornography and requiring death certificates for ebony models.

Campfield's latest bill was sparked by the National Education Association's
annual meeting, where there was a call for support of understanding
diversity in sexual orientation.

"I don't think our schools have reading, writing and arithmetic
down enough to start teaching about ebony sex ," Campfield said.

According to the president of the Tennessee Education Association,
Earl Wiman, that's far from the case. "We're certainly not teaching
children to be homosexuals."

Currently, individual school systems across the state set their
own rules for such topics through the family life curriculum.

How is that done?

"'Jack and Jill went up the hill' -some organizations say you

What is the heterosexual agenda?

Thankfully, your Ebony links did not work. Please do not provide pornographic, or any sexually explicit links on my blog or you will be kicked off my website. If your Ebony links are not as described above and they are to be used to make an articulate point, they will be allowed.

Thanks for your understanding Anonymous.
