Sexual diversity: coming to a school near you

A prominent homosexual columnist has blown away the smokescreen obscuring the real intent behind anti-bullying and “anti-homophobic” programs in schools. Daniel Villarreal in Queerty writes: “Let’s face it, we want to indoctrinate children.”
Queertyis an influential American on-line magazine covering homosexual lifestyle and news. Founded in 2005 by David Hauslaib, Queerty is frequently referenced and quoted by the mainstream media, including the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Newsweek, the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) news and the Belfast Telegraph, — so there is no excuse for the mainstream media not to know and understand the homosexual agenda.
Daniel Villarreal, writing in Queerty, questions why his lobby refuses to admit that the gay agenda involves indoctrinating schoolchildren to accept homosexuality. He is critical of the homosexual culture of denial against accusations of promoting homosexuality in public schools.
Referring to a recent National Organization for Marriage (NOM) advertisement in New York publicising how homosexual indoctrination has been introduced in Massachusetts and California schools — and the routine denials by homosexual activists — Villarreal wrote: “Let’s face it — that’s a lie. We want educators to teach future generations of children to accept queer sexuality. In fact our very future depends on it.”
He pointed to the tactics of a homosexual activist group, FCKH8, which fought a recent Tennessee bill prohibiting classroom discussion of homosexuality in grade school by “hiring some little girls to drop F-bombs” in its controversial online advertising campaign, and by handing out homosexual paraphernalia to schoolchildren.
“Recruiting children? You bet we are,” Villarreal wrote. “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?”
Villarreal wrote that his dream of increasing not only the acceptance but the future practice of homosexuality among youngsters was common among those in the homosexual lobby.
“I and a lot of other people want to indoctrinate, recruit, teach and expose children to queer sexuality and there is nothing wrong with that,” he wrote.
GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, poses as a “gay rights” and “anti-bullying” group for youth, going to bat for them on issues such as discrimination. Behind GLSEN’s window-dressing rhetoric about safe schools, bigotry, “homophobia”, oppression and concerns about harassment, lies the reality: advocacy of actual homosexual sex, sometimes implicit, sometimes very explicit, even for young children.
And sometimes it’s with adults. They also support gender change even for elementary age children, and they claim children can act out these perilous behaviours whenever they are “ready for it”. It’s the ultimate in foolish child “empowerment”, with parental consent deemed irrelevant.
Bypassing parents is GLSEN’s trademark, and is all over its activities. Parents are generally the enemy of “queer” youth, especially parents with religious or moral objections.
Over the past few years, Mission America, a Christian pro-family organisation, and others have written detailed reports about the reading recommendations GLSEN gave youngsters from kindergarten through to secondary school. These book choices were listed on a special page on the GLSEN site called “Book Link” and remained on their site until recently.
Here’s Mission America’s summary of the contents of these books: “Unabashed support for children engaging in homosexuality and cross–dressing, anonymous restroom sex, pick-ups on the Internet, frequent porn viewing, and sex between adults and young teens. And anyone who objects ‘hates’ homosexuals and is the enemy.
“GLSEN has a disclaimer on their site which they point to as cover. Since many parents never access these pages, it’s worthless, and doesn’t excuse the particularly troubling nature of the selections made.”
These books came under special scrutiny again in 2009 when GLSEN founder, Kevin Jennings, became a top official in President Barack Obama’s Department of Education in charge of — get this — “safe schools”!
In neighbouring Canada, the education minister in the provincial government of Ontario, Leona Dombrowsky, has attracted severe criticism from Christian groups for her department’s “equity and inclusive education strategy”, which includes promoting the gay agenda in schools.
The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada (EFC) last year protested that the department’s strategy lacked “accountability and transparency”, and that classroom instruction under the scheme may be “contrary to what a large number of Ontario parents deem as age appropriate or consistent with their values”.
According to a report by Rebecca Millette and John Jalsevac of LifeSiteNews, the president of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA) admits that the anti-bullying clubs being set up in Ontario Catholic schools are simply gay-straight alliances (GSAs) with a “Catholic name”.
His admission confirms the worst fears of pro-family critics of the Ontario government’s equity policy. Pro-family groups have warned that the equity and inclusive education strategy, if implemented without clear safeguards, would empower board employees sympathetic to the homosexualist cause and provide a foothold for gay activists in Christian schools.
Education Minister Leona Dombrowsky has added fuel to the fire of the raging debate by suggesting that Catholic school boards do not have the right to refuse to allow GSAs in their schools. Her statement spells trouble for the strategy of the Ontario Catholic bishops, who have attempted to sidestep Ontario government requirements for gay support groups in every school by putting in place a framework for clubs they say will focus simply on “anti-bullying”, rather than the activist-oriented and gay-affirmative GSAs.
