There is a commonly held belief that most parents have that America’s public school system is completely neutral in terms of religious and social values. The view is that the public school system exists only to teach neutral subjects, such as reading, writing and arithmetic. But is this an accurate perspective? Are government-run schools neutral?
What many parents do not know is that GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) has been actively working with government schools since 1990 to introduce pro-LGBT propaganda into the school classrooms. Have you ever wondered to yourself why LGBT issues were not overrunning the nation in the 1980s (and before)? Well, GLSEN is one of the main agencies that have helped to normalize the homosexual and transgender lifestyles by reaching children when they are young.
They have chapters in most of the major cities in America, and their online resources are utilized by thousands of schools, even the “good school districts” in rural areas. While we, as conservative Americans, support the right of every American citizen to be protected from physical threats and unfair discrimination, we do not support the normalization of sexually aberrant lifestyles as being normal and healthy. We do not believe that six-year-olds should be told that, if they want to have a surgery to remove their reproductive organs and transition into the opposite gender, that is a wonderful life decision. According to one study of individuals who had cross-sex surgeries, 25% later attempted suicide.
The levels of depression and suicide are rampant for people who embrace these disconnected lifestyles. And it is not merely because they are bullied by other members of society. Lots of immigrants and minorities experience the same types of discrimination and verbal assaults as members of the LGBT community. The fact is, people who reject their given gender have cut themselves off from their very identity. They have ceased to be themselves and have decided to become something entirely different. That is not a decision that elementary or even high school students should be encouraged to make.
While people have the right in our country to believe whatever it is that they wish to believe, when tax dollars are concerned, as they are in the public school system, all tax-paying citizens have a right to input as to how those tax dollars are used.
The use of private citizens’ money to teach young children that they should reject their own God-given gender, in favor of their own choice, is not an appropriate use of public funds. Indoctrination is not the just prerogative of the civil government, and any time a government has used its influence to reshape the minds of the youth in history, things went very, very wrong.
In a document entitled, “Developing LGBT-Inclusive Classroom Resources,” teachers are encouraged to use the new Common Core curriculum as a means of teaching about LGBT issues in every subject, at every grade level, from K-12. So if you are teaching second grade math or fourth grade geography, you as a teacher are supposed to figure out how to teach, at taxpayer’s expense, how important LGBT issues are to that subject and every other sphere of existence. Allow me to quote from that document:
Implementation of the Common Core State Standards is one way that many states and school districts are making efforts to ensure quality education for all students. The examples below demonstrate how an examination of the standards and themes can lead to locating opportunities for the natural inclusion of LGBT-related content in English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects, and Mathematics.”
For parents who still believe that the public school system is like the “Leave it to Beaver” world they imagine it to be, they need to think again. These schools are NOT neutral. Parents need to rethink their current model of turning their children over to highly trained indoctrination professions for a minimum of 10,800 hours of instruction between K-12. They need to find a way to regain influence as the most important and influential voices in the lives of their children. That will take time and effort, but it is so important. Our children’s futures depend on it.
