GLSEN Founder, Kevin Jennings has been asked to be the National Supervisor charged with overseeing “Safe Schools”.
In his own words, activist Kevin Jennings, director of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) describes how immorality got a foothold in the Massachusetts schools by using “safety” as an issue.”
“We immediately seized upon the opponent’s calling card — safety — and explained how homophobia represents a threats to students’ safety by creating a climate where violence, name-calling, health problems, and suicide are common. Tilting our report, ‘Making Schools Safe for Gay and Lesbian Youth,’ we automatically threw our opponents onto the defensive and stole their best line of attack. This….short-circuited their arguments and left them back-peddling from day one.”
Parents beware! The wolf is at the door.
|GLSEN Founder to Oversee “Safe Schools” Nationwide|
Much has been made of the new Supreme Court nominee, but just as concerning is what flies under the radar.
In an announcement on Tuesday, Federal Secretary of State Arne Duncan made his choice for Assistant Deputy Secretary in the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools.
He chose Kevin Jennings, a leading advocate for homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality in schools. Jennings is founder and former Executive Director of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).
“This man’s work and his agenda are exactly why we’ve seen the radical pro-homosexuality curriculum pushed across California. He is now more strongly positioned to implement his agenda nationwide,” said Karen England, Executive Director of Capitol Resource Institute.
Jennings has been at the forefront of homosexual activism in public schools since the late 1980s, when as a high school history teacher, he was the faculty advisor to America’s first Gay-Straight Alliance club in Massachusetts.
It was in Massachusetts that he helped author Making Schools Safe for Gay & Lesbian Youth, a report whose recommendations the State Board of Education adopted as policy.
Among his recent accomplishments, Jennings co-chaired Obama for America’s LGBT Finance Committee.
As Californians know by experience, what GLSEN promotes as “school safety” usually means that every schoolchild will embrace the homosexual lifestyle or else be labeled a bigot.
This philosophy, spread across the nation by federal authority, do not promote safety for every child.
In practice, as parents in California’s Alameda Unified School District experienced this week, this philosophy means that race and religion can become less protected categories in school.
“In the last two weeks, I’ve heard from parents coast to coast who are concerned about instruction that promotes homosexuality in their children’s schools,” England said.
“The decision to appoint Jennings to the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools should concern every parent, everywhere, because his social bias is abundantly clear,” she said.
