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