Homosexuals Target America's Children
Homosexual Teacher Group Targets Kindergartners
Washington, DC -- Hundreds of homosexual teachers and school officials gathered in Chicago not long ago to attend the annual Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) conference.
The keynote speaker at this event was Robert Chase, head of the National Education Association, the nation's most powerful teacher's union. Chase told his audience that the NEA supports homosexual teachers. He observed, "I am here today precisely out of concern for the children our members teach. The NEA does not have what the right wing has branded a quote 'radical pro-homosexual agenda.' Rather, we have a radical civil rights agenda ? A pro-human agenda."
Chase is engaging in Orwellian Newspeak, designed to shield parents from the truth: The NEA has an aggressive pro-homosexual agenda and has promoted the normalization of homosexuality for years.
The NEA support for homosexual activism should be cause for great alarm to parents who are concerned about their children being taught deviant sexual practices in the public schools. Last March, GLSEN held a workshop at Tufts University where homosexual HIV instructors taught teenagers how to "fist" their sexual partners. Fisting is a medically unsafe practice involving thrusting the fist and arm up the anus of one's sexual partner.
GLSEN's Chicago office was the primary sponsor of this most recent conference. One of their leaders, David Thomas, was recently arrested for trying to solicit sex with an underage boy. Thomas, a social worker, was released from GLSEN after this became public, but one wonders how many other homosexual men within GLSEN are targeting children for molestation.
The conference attendees--including teenagers--received a visitor's packet that advertised Chicago's homosexual S&M leather bars and a homosexual bathhouse called Steamworks. This kind of material hardly seems appropriate for children.
GLSEN's conference featured workshops designed to help activist teachers introduce pro-homosexual themes into kindergarten social studies curricula. Children who can barely read, will be shown photos of lesbian mothers and daughters in a book called "Celebrating Families."
Homosexual teachers are also encouraging a new group of sexually confused individuals known as "transgenders." These are boys and girls who are suffering from gender identity disorders. Instead of helping them recover from gender confusion, homosexual teachers consider transgendered teens the new persecuted sexual minority. GLSEN is urging transgender teens to begin lobbying for unisex bathrooms on their campuses.
GLSEN also encouraged homosexual teachers to threaten their schools with lawsuits if school officials refuse to allow GLSEN to start Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) Clubs on campuses. Not only does GLSEN want a GSA on every campus, they want to violate the rights of parents to keep their children out of such clubs. In one workshop, homosexuals were told that GLSEN is looking for a legal case involving a teen who wants to attend a GSA, but is prevented by his parents from attending. GLSEN will then file a suit against the parents to prevent them from protecting their child from homosexual recruitment. Homosexual teachers obviously believe that children with sexual identity disorders are "their" children--and that parents have no right to protest homosexual recruitment programs.
What occurred at the GLSEN conference should be a wake-up call to all parents who are concerned about the moral and physical well-being of their children on public school campuses. If GLSEN has its way, parental rights will be a thing of the past. Once free from parental oversight, radical homosexual teachers will indoctrinate a generation of children to embrace a deviant and dangerous sexual lifestyle.
Instead of Gay-Straight Alliance Clubs being run by sexually troubled teens, perhaps it's time for Christian youth leaders to join these clubs to promote morality and the truth about the dangers of homosexuality and promiscuous sexual activities. Sexually confused teens need encouragement to come out of this deadly lifestyle--not to be drawn deeper into a sexual addiction and even death from HIV infection.

Read what some left-wing sicko public school teacher in California did...
A California school system refuses to say what action, if any, it will take after it received complaints about a kindergarten teacher who encouraged her students to sign "pledge cards" in support of gays.
During a celebration of National Ally Week, Tara Miller, a teacher at the Faith Ringgold School of Arts and Science in Hayward, Calif., passed out cards produced by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network to her class of kindergartners.
The cards asked signers to be "an ally" and to pledge to "not use anti-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) language or slurs; intervene, when I feel I can, in situations where others are using anti-LGBT language or harassing other students and actively support safer schools efforts."
The school has acknowledged that the exercise was not appropriate for kindergartners.
Parent Adela Voelker, who declined to be interviewed in depth for this report, said she was furious when she found her child's signature on one of the cards. She said she contacted a non-profit legal defense organization specializing in parents' rights.
Meanwhile, a school board member, Jeff Cook, says some type of action should be taken.
"We have a general rule that all instruction should be age appropriate, and this clearly was not," said Cook, who has served on the school board for five years.
California schools' new homosexual curriculum
2 bills take 'diversity' training to classroom effective Jan. 1
December 26, 2000

© 2008 WorldNetDaily.comSACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Children attending California government schools will soon be taught explicitly to avoid "discriminatory attitudes and practices" toward homosexuals in accordance with two new state laws that fund revised curriculum and unspecified "tolerance" programs.
Assembly bills 1785 and 1931 were both passed in the Democrat-run legislature by a one-vote margin. While the latter went into effect immediately upon receiving a signature by Gov. Gray Davis on Sept. 30, the former goes into effect on Jan. 1.
Authored by former Assembly Speaker Antonio Villaraigosa, who left the Assembly this year due to term limits, AB 1785 requires "the State Board of Education to revise the state curriculum frameworks and guidelines and the moral and civic education curricula to include human relations education, with the aim of fostering an appreciation of the diversity of California's population and discouraging the development of discriminatory attitudes and practices," according to the state legislative counsel's digest. The "diversity" education must be incorporated into new state education frameworks to be adopted in 2008.
Additionally, AB 1785 would require a course on "human relations" as a prerequisite for receiving a teaching credential to teach "limited-English-proficient pupils," and would define "culture" and "cultural diversity" to mean "an understanding of human relations, including," among other things, "recognizing and responding to behavior related to bias based on race, color, religion, nationality, country of origin, ancestry, gender, disability, or sexual orientation."
The bill also requires schools to report "hate-motivated incidents and hate crimes" to the Department of Education, which in turn shares such information with the Justice Department.
"AB 1785 will help us identify and respond appropriately to hate crime hot spots," said Villaraigosa. "By improving the data collection about hate crimes occurring in our schools, we can more efficiently target our limited resources. We will better understand where and why these crimes are occurring. Only then can we begin to break the cycle of intolerance."
While the author of the bill focuses on hate-crimes reporting, critics point to what they say is "far-reaching language" that will "promote homosexuality and bisexuality to shape the attitudes of schoolchildren."
Pointing to provisions in the bill that authorize "coordination" with "private agencies," political activist Randy Thomasson said, "The bill will also empower homosexual organizations to come into the public schools."
"The bill would allow schools to use 'supplemental resources' from homosexual organizations," said Thomasson, executive director of Campaign for California Families. "We must ask, does this include resources such as those used in Massachusetts to train children how to engage in oral sex and 'fisting'? The bill language is very broad: It prohibits any 'bias on the basis of ... sexual orientation.' What form or part of sexual orientation does this not mean?"
But AB 1785 is not the only bill signed by Gov. Gray Davis that has family activists up in arms. Former Assemblyman Jack Scott's AB 1931 paves the way for school-aged children to be taken on field trips to "participate in educational programs focused on fostering ethnic sensitivity, overcoming racism and prejudice, and countering hatred and intolerance." The bill does not define "hatred" or "intolerance."
Specifically, the bill allows for the appropriation of $150,000 "to contract for the services of an organization with the experience to provide regional training programs throughout the state to assist school district personnel in the identification and determination of hate violence on school campuses, and allocate $2,000,000 for the purpose of providing grants on a competitive basis, as specified, to school districts and county offices of education to enable pupils and teachers to participate in educational programs focused on fostering ethnic sensitivity, overcoming racism and prejudice, and countering hatred and intolerance."
Thomasson said the bill "can easily be used to promote the homosexual agenda to schoolchildren. The bill funds subjective programs that are given carte blanche to deal with 'prejudice,' 'intolerance,' and 'hatred.' This lack of definition is very broad and far-reaching. The funding in the bill can therefore be given to homosexual groups to teach children to approve of homosexuality, bisexuality, transgenderism and transvestitism. There is no clear limit to the 'tolerance' subject matter contained in the bill."
Regarding the bill's funding of tolerance-related "educational programs, Thomasson asks, "Does this mean pro-gay conventions for teachers, such as GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network)? Does this mean pro-homosexuality events and field trips for students, such as 'Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning Youth Lobby Day' at the State Capitol? All these 'programs' are quite possible because of the lack of definition and accountability in the bill."
GLSEN came under fire this year for its "Teach Out" in March, held at Tufts University, which featured Massachusetts Department of Education employees instructing children as young as 14 in how to properly perform homosexual sex acts. It also included a session to help teachers create a pro-homosexual environment in the classroom. The group maintains such conferences are necessary to prevent violence and abuse of homosexual children.
According to its mission statement, "GLSEN creates learning environments that affirm the inherent dignity of all students, and, in so doing, teaches them to respect and accept all of their classmates -- regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. GLSEN believes that the key to ending anti-gay prejudice and hate-motivated violence is education. And it's for this reason that GLSEN brings together students, educators, families and other community members -- of any sexual orientation -- to reform America's educational system."
Through its self-described "groundbreaking" teacher-training materials, the organization hopes to "ensure that the next generation of Americans will live in a world without anti-gay prejudice."
But critics believe efforts of groups like GLSEN infringe on their free speech and religious rights. Many religious groups believe the practice of homosexuality is a serious sin and do not want their children taught that it is an acceptable lifestyle. Yet, through the efforts of the Democrat-dominated legislature in California, children are increasingly being taught just that, they complain.
"The pro-homosexual Democrats have imposed much of the homosexual agenda in California. The pro-family community is learning how to fight back. We have much work to do and the battle has just begun," Thomasson said enthusiastically, noting his group's efforts that contributed to the defeat of several pro-homosexual measures this year. "Concerned citizens must become active citizens who pledge their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to the defense of children and families. CCF will lead if people will step out in faith."
Democrats gained even more seats in the state's law-making body in the November election, giving the party a 50-30 majority in the Assembly and a 26-14 majority in the Senate.
