The ABCs of LGBT

When a prominent homosexual magazine vowed, “We will teach your kids the new norms,” they meant it. And a massive 45-page attack on your child’s innocence reveals how. This week, a coalition of American “health” organizations released its “National Sexuality Education Standards,” a document meant to transform what public schools teach your kids about sex. “Ideally, comprehensive sexuality education should start in kindergarten,” the groups (which count Planned Parenthood and the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network as its advisors) insist. In the proposed timetable, children should be able to “define sexual orientation as the romantic attraction of an individual to someone of the same gender or a different gender” by age 10 and “identify parents or other trusted adults of whom students can ask questions about sexual orientation.”

Of course, this is completely in line with what homosexual activists have been advocating all along. “We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality,” Daniel Villarreal wrote last year. “[O]ur very future depends on it… Why would we push anti-bullying programs or social studies classes that teach kids about the historical contributions of famous queers unless we wanted to deliberately educate children to accept queer sexuality as normal?”

Educators should not be undermining the values that parents are trying to instill in their children at home. Instead of remaining neutral, public schools are opening the door to complete and utter indoctrination. And we wonder why the U.S. is falling so far behind other countries in math and science scores! It’s simple. Instead of emphasizing math and science, we’re emphasizing sex! Education is no longer about making children smart, it’s about making them politically correct. If that’s ever going to change, parents have to lead the charge. They did in Shanendehowa, New York, and it changed the face of sex education. You can too. Call your local school district administrative offices and find out what your kids are learning about sex–and from whom.
