Take a Stand Against the Agenda: Empty the Halls on “Day of Silence”

The so called “Day of Silence” has nothing to do with education.  It is a waste of educational resources and sends the wrong message to our children.  The best way to discourage the practice of allowing these radical homosexual groups from commandeering our school systems is to vote with our feet, and take our tax dollars with us.

See this from CRI:

Capitol Resource Institute is encouraging families to keep students home from school on Friday, April 16, unless their schools expressly expect students to speak on that day.

April 16th is the Day of Silence, a campaign of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which is often used to make homosexual behavior appear normal on school campuses.

“Students should focus on academics in school. They should not be allowed to end their verbal engagement in class for a social agenda,” said Karen England, Executive Director of Capitol Resource Institute.

“We pay California teachers to teach — by speaking in classrooms — and teachers should also be expected to fully discharge their duties on all schooldays,” she said. “If a school allows teachers to stop teaching, it should not get tax dollars for educating our students on that day.”

By urging a one day absence, CRI joins more than two dozen organizations in the Day of Silence Walkout Coalition. The coalition includes organizations such as Concerned Women for America, Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays, and more. It reaches out to parents across the nation who do not want their children focusing on sexuality at school.

Classrooms and campuses should focus on academics, and any student harassment should be handled with appropriate school discipline. Yet Day of Silence is one of five GLSEN events that are designed to focus campus attention on student sexuality. These events — including No Name-Calling Week and TransAction! — take a total of 16 days.

In addition to these 16 days, California public schools regularly promote the acceptance of homosexual behavior in their school safety programs. State law equally prohibits the mistreatment of all students, whether homosexual, religious, or other students are harmed.

“Every parent, teacher, and student should oppose bullying of all kinds, but Day of Silence moves beyond simple opposition to bullying,” England said. “Day of Silence equates being anti-harassment with being in favor of homosexual behavior. That is unfair to the millions of people who are respectful and friends with homosexuals, while maintaining traditional views of male and female sexuality,” she said.

Call your school to ask whether it is permitting participating in Day of Silence. Schools do not technically sponsor this social protest, but hundreds permit or encourage it. To make sure there is no disconnect between the school office and your classroom, also contact your child’s teacher and ask whether students will be allowed to participate in the Day of Silence.

Also check whether your school has a Gay-Straight Alliance Club. If your school is among the 700 California public, private, and religious schools with a GSA, chances are high that silence will be observed by at least some people on campus.

“In every generation, parents need to teach their children about treating all people with respect, while maintaining their own convictions,” England said. “This is a great chance to do so.”

CRI: Reinventing Education— California High School Pushes One-sided, Pro-Homosexual Bias on Kids… Again

See this from Capitol Resource Institute:

High School Welcomes Gay Speakers, but Rejects HIV-Positive Christian Speaker

A Bay Area high school that attracted controversy last year for its “Days of Diversity” program is again welcoming pro-gay speakers. But the school has rejected a request by a student Christian club to host an HIV-positive speaker whose experience with homosexuality proved to be life-threatening.

Castro Valley High School sparked controversy last year by hosting several questionable presenters, including Rev. Arlene K Nehring, a lesbian minister who talked to students in math and science classes about her gay wedding, encouraged them to “come out” to God, their families and themselves, and invited them to a gay prom at her church. Because of the religious overtones in past and pending presentations, students in the Revelation Club were surprised when the school rejected their request to host Christopher Yuan because of “separation of church and state.” Mr. Yuan is HIV-positive and had been invited by the students to speak on the topic “Christian, Gay, and Celibate.” In addition, it appears that the school has blocked links relating to Mr. Yuan, though continuing to allow access to gay websites.

Attorneys for Pacific Justice Institute sent a letter to the high school late last week, demanding that CVHS drop its illegal viewpoint discrimination.

CRI’s Karen England commented, “It is unfortunate that the school’s so-called diversity does not extend to Christians on campus. This type of favoritism in the classroom is unconstitutional and is sending the wrong message to our students.”

There has been no word whether Castro Valley High School has responded to Pacific Justice Institute’s letter and whether or not they will welcome Mr. Yuan to speak at the school after all.

SaveCalifornia: Alameda School District Tramples Parents

In Alameda County, school districts are implementing plans for indoctrinating children in gay and lesbian themed lessons and forbidding parents from interfering.  Here it comes!  “Whether you like it or not!”

California school district tramples parents
From SaveCalifornia.com

Tuesday night, over the protests of parents, the Alameda Unified School Board voted to keep and recraft its “Lesson 9” homosexuality-bisexuality-transsexuality curriculum.

The Dec. 8 vote was 4-1 to “retain Lesson 9 until a replacement that specifically addresses all six of the ‘protected classes’ is…adopted by the board.” Read the blow-by-blow account of the school board meeting.

This means the preying on children to indoctrinate them into the unnatural and unhealthy LGBTQ (“lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning”) lifestyles is even worse now, and will become a more salable model for school districts near you. This is because Alameda school board members voted to hide the curriculum under a more expansive “anti-bullying” label that will continue to teach children that “LGBTQ” lifestyles are good, natural, and maybe even for them.

Alameda’s attack on children and families comes a week after a judge, despite the arguments of pro-family attorneys, ruled that California law trumps a claim to parental rights in this situation. The judge ruled that parents cannot “opt out” their children from Alameda’s pro-LGBTQ lifestyle curriculum. See the school district’s triumphant Dec. 2 news release.

GRASP WHAT THIS MEANS

1. Any government school district can push homosexuality-bisexuality-transsexuality curriculum on students. There is no California state law prohibiting this. All pro-family efforts to protect kid’s minds have been and will continue to be defeated in Democrat-controlled committees of the California Legislature. “LBGTQ-friendly” curriculum is already taught to kids in San Francisco and Oakland. Now, with Alameda on board, it can easily spread to other California school districts (most of which are controlled by liberals or uncourageous conservatives) under the cover of “anti-bullying” curriculum. (See actual video clips of homosexuality-bisexuality-transsexuality indoctrination in Massachusetts.)

2. California school districts are more likely than ever to trump parental rights with immoral education: In a 1995 speech, Barack Obama’s “Safe Schools” project leader, homosexual activist Kevin Jennings, explained how he successfully imposed homosexuality-bisexuality-transsexuality indoctrination by packaging it as “safety.” This deception has been crushing moral standards in California public schools for several years now. Despite many U.S. Supreme Court rulings upholding the inherent right of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children, SaveCalifornia.com has witnessed, over the last decade, the California Legislature passing law after law that either limit or eliminate parental rights in public schools.

3. School districts are already permitting student clubs and campus activities promoting homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality to other children: Public schools can and do hold lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender “diversity day,” “week” and “month.” Public schools can and many do permit the pro-“LGBTQ” “Day of Silence” every April. Public school districts must permit “Gay-Straight Alliance” clubs on high school and junior high campuses. We often hear other horror stories too.

4. Don’t think this isn’t happening your community? There are now 5 statewide California laws promoting homosexual, bisexual and transsexual lifestyles to children: Read what AB 537, SB 71, SB 777, AB 394 and SB 572 push on children as young as kindergarten.

See this from Stand for Marriage Maine:

National Public Radio interviewed Deb Allen, a Massachusetts sex education teacher, on the topic of how some teachers have responded to the teaching of sex education following the legalization of gay marriage in Massachusetts. The content is chilling and should be a wake up call to all those who believe our opponents lies that gay marriage won’t be taught in Maine simply because it is not expressly required in LD 1020.

The NPR reporter tells listeners that when Massachusetts legalized gay marriage, homosexual activists went right to work developing a, “gay friendly curriculum for kindergarten and up.” The reporter notes that Allen “says the debate around gay marriage is prompting kids to ask a lot more questions like what is gay sex which Allen answers thoroughly and explicitly with a chart.”  But the most alarming quote in our ad is from Ms. Allen herself:

“I know that, OK, this is legal now. If somebody wants to challenge me I say give me a break.” — Deb Allen, Teacher

The ad actually does not tell the full extent that this teacher instructs 8th graders on gay sex. The news story shockingly reveals that students learn in detail about various ways lesbians engage in sex.

The full NPR story is available  here.

We entrust our young children to teachers every day that we send them to school. But because marriage has always been understood as being between a man and a woman, we have not had to worry about a trusted teacher teaching our sons and daughters about a new version of marriage and all that it entails. Yet all of that could change, as it has in other states, if we do not prevail on November 3rd.

Please help us get the word to Mainers that there are real consequences if Question 1 fails.  We have been working hard to explain to Mainers that there are significant, negative consequences to legalizing same-sex marriage that reach far beyond the boundaries of the two people who simply want to “marry”. We have laid bare the fact that legal scholars from across the country including those who support gay marriage predict a new flood of lawsuits against individuals, small businesses and religious organizations who may conscientiously object to providing their services to gay couples. We have shown proof that in other states where gay marriage is legal, it is taught to young children in school. We have made it abundantly clear that such instruction is, in fact, a part of public school curriculum. We have further established and the state Department of Education is on record agreeing with us that there is absolutely nothing in LD 1020 that prevents such instruction from taking place.

Time is of the essence to make sure that all Mainers know the very real, very serious, and very negative consequences to society should Question 1 fail on November 3rd. We are counting on your continued support.

California: Benedict Arnold Signs-On to Gay Agenda “Harvey Milk Day” and Same Sex Marriage Bills BOTH SIGNED

got_milk_harvey

California: Say HELLO to State Pedophile Day and Same Sex Marriage!

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signs controversial gay agenda bills mandating recognition of  “Harvey Milk Day” and same sex marriage.

After a long midnight session with legislators, Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed SB 572 legislation that appoints May 22 as “Harvey Milk Day” in California public schools AND and SB 54 that recognizes same-sex marriages performed out of state.

The signing of these two bills is a slap in the face to voters who have consistently rejected same sex marriage and pushing homosexuality in schools.

Opponents “Harvey Milk Day” were concerned that the legislation would not simply “allow schools to conduct activities that would foster respect for all” but rather pressure schools into presenting homosexuality in a positive light, gay marriage as a civil right, and those who say homosexual relations are wrong as discriminatory bigots.

Concerned parents, teachers and pro-family leaders joined the voices of thousands who had already called on the governor to veto “Harvey Milk Day”  because of it’s aim in promoting homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality in public schools:

“Under SB 572, schoolchildren could perform mock gay weddings, have cross-dressing contests, and have gay-pride parades right on campus. Why? Because ‘Harvey Milk Gay Day’ pressures schools to make children honor and support anything and everything that Milk believed in. The sky is the limit. And there’s no parental consent in the bill” — Randy Thomasson of SaveCalifornia.com

“Hispanic children are dropping out of school in record numbers, and now the politicians want children to learn more about the homosexual agenda, instead doing more to academically prepare them for graduation and college? That’s not just immoral, that’s crazy. Hispanic families will not put up with this.” — Luis Galdamez, Executive Director of La Familia Hispana

The Orange County Board of Education actually voted 5-0 to condemn officially condemn Harvey Milk day:

“We who are responsible for the academic achievement of thousands of children must guard and protect their best interests.  Replacing valuable classroom time with social engineering may be popular with some, but it’s certainly not the legitimate purpose of schools.”  —Dr. Ken Williams, member of the Orange County Board of Education

A second bill put forward by homosexual advocacy groups was also signed by the Governor.   SB 54 is the most flagrant violation of the people’s will to date:

“SB 54 requires the state of California to validate and recognize same-sex marriages performed outside the state of California prior to November 5, 2008.  The bill specifically violates Article I, Section 7.5 of the California Constitution which states “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”—California Family Council

The People spoke by the millions during the Proposition 8 election last year and by millions before during Proposition 22.  Twice by vote and now by Constitutional amendment, the Constitution of California recognizes marriage as between one man and one woman.

SB 54 started off as a healthcare bill but was summarily gutted and amended into a new bill that recognizes same sex marriages from out of state. It was completely stripped inside and out and re-written to be a gay rights bill.

The gutting and amending of SB 54 allowed this controversial bill to pass to a full floor vote after going through only one committee hearing.  It’s wrong for such a controversial bill to  go through only a partial vetting without the opportunity for maximum public input.

After months of protesting, faxing, calling, and petitioning in opposition to these two bills, the governor has turned his back on voters, families and the state’s most vulnerable— our children.

Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings, Yet Another Gay Activist On Tape—Homosexual “Sensitivity” Training Must Be Taught in Kindergarten

GLSEN_school_bus“Safe Schools” Obama’s Education Czar Under Fire for Pushing Homosexuality in Schools

Hattip to the American Principles Project and Fox News

Kevin Jennings makes no secret that he wants schoolchildren as young as kindergartners to be taught about “not discriminating” based on sexual orientation. Kerry Picket at the Washington Times has found an audio recording of Jennings speaking about this issue.

Here is a partial transcript of Jennings’ comments on the lack of sexual orientation sensitivity training in school curricula, and how it is causing LGBT students to be persecuted and distracted from studying:

“The fact that this is not in our curriculum should offend everyone in this audience. This should be our curriculum. Our curriculum at kindergarten, and first grade, and second grade – every grade until students have graduated should be ‘you must respect every human being regardless of sexual orientation [etc.]. If we cannot teach this very basic lesson in our schools we will very surprised at how hard it is for these [LGBT] students to learn french or english or math … you can’t focus on reading, writing or ‘rithmetic if you are instead focusing on survival.”

These comments echo what the American Principles Project has discovered Jennings saying on-camera, that all teachers, must be required to undergo LGBT-sensitivity coursework as a requirement before graduating and being allowed in a classroom, otherwise teachers without such training will inevitable become a “threat to children”, he claimed.

In 1997, according to a transcript put together by Brian J. Burt, managing editor of the student-run Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, Jennings said he hoped that promoting homosexuality in schools would be considered fine in the future.

“One of our board members” was called to testify before Congress when they had hearings on the promotion of homosexuality in schools,” Jennings said. “And we were busy putting out press releases, and saying, “We’re not promoting homosexuality, that’s not what our program’s about. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah…. ‘

“Being finished might someday mean that most straight people, when they would hear that someone was promoting homosexuality, would say ‘Yeah, who cares?’ because they wouldn’t necessarily equate homosexuality with something bad that you would not want to promote.”Fox News article exposing Kevin Jennings’ school agenda

The evidence continues to pile up, and yet in contested states like Maine, where same sex marriage is on the ballot, gay activists continue to lie through their teeth, denying the intent of their agenda for schools.  There is fear in the air that should these statements and intents become widely known, that parents, teachers and voters would stage a political backlash against the gay movement.  Counter the lies!

The truth is out there in abundance.  We’ve only scratched the surface.

Proponents of Gay Marriage Hide School Agenda From Voters in Maine

“It’s Elementary!” …Yet Gay Lobby Denies Agenda in Schools

Check out the propaganda being pushed in this clip intended for school use.  Interesting isn’t it? And here I thought the gay marriage campaigns in California and Maine both promised that this sort of stuff would not be taught in school.

Just this last week the No on 1 campaign issued a letter condemning pro-marriage ads as false and misleading when they talked about gay issues being taught in the schools, yet here it is again—more evidence pointing to the gay lobby’s attempts to gain access to our schools.

It’s Elementary?!  It’s False!  The very premise on which the film is based is biased. If you have a problem with bullying, teach them about kindness and the golden rule, not lesbianism. To disagree with the gay lifestyle is not to hate. How is telling kids that if they disagree with the gay lifestyle they are homophobic or bigoted going to teach them tolerance and love for their neighbor?

A friend of mine commented in defense of this teaching saying:

“Would you prefer that gay and lesbian children in schools continue to get beat up?”

False logic!  Is teaching lesbianism to children the way to promote kindness? Or is teaching kindness the way to promote kindness?

This leap of logic happens in mainstream media all the time, but I believe you can teach children respect for others and their differences without teaching them they have to agree with other’s choices.

The subtle nuance displayed here promotes the gay lifestyle as normal, healthy and good.  It is being pushed in grades where it is too difficult for our young, impressionable children to identify and reject. That is why propaganda such as this should never be allowed in our schools.

What do the Gay Activists have to say?

Don’t buy the lies!  What is the truth of the issue?  Here is the truth, openly displayed even as it’s proponents deny it.

This is what every parent should see because this is what the gay lobby is trying to push in our classrooms across this nation.  It’s being pushed in every state, not just Massachusetts, California or Maine.
