Activists Targeting Schools Following SCOTUS Ruling on Marriage

Education Week, a leading publication read by educators across the country, is featuring an article this week that is calling for renewed and accelerated inclusion of LGBT materials in the curriculum.

There must be more classroom conversation on the subject.

It's already a dominate topic in public education. Why more?

Because the comfort level of LGBT students is not yet acceptable.

"We know the arguments from the haters will focus on why LGBT discussions should be banned from school, but the Supreme Court ruling should help overturn the conversations that take place in school," they say.

And they offer three reasons why the acceptable comfortable level is being impeded.

One of the 3 reasons is small, sometimes large groups of parents in districts who want there own values taught, and if not, they create a problem.

In advocating for accelerated effort in the classroom this coming year, activist Peter DeWitt, and Education Week identify 3 reasons why some schools are reluctant to go all in on the LGBT agenda.

Take a moment and read the entire article.

DeWitt writes, "Most schools have students who are either identify as LGBT or parents who are gay. The curriculum should at least mirror the real lives of these students. There are school communities around the country that are progressive and offer inclusive curriculum, but there are many that do not. There are at least 3 reasons why schools will not offer curriculum that includes LGBT topics. They are: "

1. Unsupportive Administrators - Many teachers will not enter into the domain of using curriculum that includes LGBT related topics because their administrators will not support them. Although the Supreme Court ruling was historic, it will be a long time before it changes the mindset of every administrator around the US.

2. Parent Pushback - There are small groups of parents in some districts, and large groups of parents in other districts who do not want their children, and any other children, exposed to LGBT related topics in school. School leaders and teachers have seen parents pull their children from class when schools participate in the Day of Silence. Some parents bring their own values into the public school setting and want schools to abide by those values. Teachers will not test the waters of LGBT topics in their classroom if they feel that parents will pushback and administrators will not be supportive. There are some districts that are moving forward, but there has been a great deal of pushback.

3. Don't Know where to start - Many teachers and leaders do not know where to start. They usually begin by using words like tolerance and acceptance (I prefer acceptance of being tolerated). The most important place to begin is with school board policies and student codes of conduct that stipulate discipline for students who harass and bully based on sexual orientation and gender expression. They also need to be clearly written to support the use of LGBT topics in classrooms. Policies and codes of conduct set the foundation for supporting teachers and leaders when there is parent pushback. Interestingly, they also provide parents of LGBT students support for when administrators ignore the very paper those policies are written on. Another place to begin is through curriculum.

Please re-read the above carefully.

Be encouraged. The resistance by parents does pay off. Standing for biblical values and against the LGBT agenda in your school has had and will continue to have a positive effect.

Be Informed. This is the theme for the LGBT agenda this coming school year---more not less of what we have seen.

Be Vigilant. These people never quit trying to re-educate and indoctrinate your child.

Be Discerning. This is not about Christian parents trying to hurt those kids who have been consumed by the LGBT agenda. The activists use children as a leverage to advance their agenda. This is about saving kids, in particular your own, from being baptized in this destructive lifestyle.

Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.


  1. Parents MUST purge all sex ed from school curriculums, and gay activists know that is the answer now to protect children. They are anticipating those battles. What a joke....most parents aren't that smart or courageous.....they think their kids need indoctrination in sex techniques, including anal sex, EVERY SCHOOL YEAR-K thru 12 ! (Washington State has those curriculums in our schools....have you seen them??) Do your job parents, talk openly with your kids about sex when they want to ask questions, and they will... Emphasize that sex is a beautiful thing at the right time and place with the right person....someone who is committed to you, cares deeply for your welfare, and is ready to stand up in front of your church congregation and say that publicly before God and family....that would be marriage. Don't let strangers of any stripe "educate" your children on the definition of "love". You should do it. (Your church families could help a lot, but 9 out of 10 fail to talk about healthy relationships from the pulpit or in Sunday school....its all about serving in ministry in Africa or Nepal.....aargh!) You are leaving your precious treasures from God....your children....ill prepared for adulthood if you will not quietly, patiently and lovingly have some "chats" about sex and sexual mores. Do it!!!

  2. It seems to me that ACOTUS made an arbitrary decision here and so now the people begin suffering the ill effects thereof.

  3. Parents are going to have to keep their children out of all sex education if this is where it's going, since it's a shame to speak of such vile things and just as bad to hear of them. It's child abuse by a state run education system unless such talk is banned.

  4. How can right thinking parents feel their children will be safe at school now if homosexual practices are included in the school curriculum , or if teachers feel the need to preach or teach "acceptance" of such vile sexual behavior?

    And won't their children be subject to harassment or adversarial environments because of wrong sexual curriculum?

    Let's make no mistake here. The attacks of the wicked will be spreading and healthy good children will be exposed to the aggression of the wolves.

  5. The majority of the court threw itself in with the homosexual agenda, and by their decision, everyone else too, it seems.

  6. I can't help but think of James 1:8. Look at all this instability here in this matter in the public schools system now. This once was known as a Christian nation, a nation founded by Christians. It's as if a nation has forgotten what it once looked like isn't it? (see James 1:24)

    Did the Supreme court forget about how carnal nature is contrary to God?

    It's time to return to God isn't it? It's time for a nation to return to God.

    It's being shaken and being put in the balances isn't it? Which way will it go?

    Haven't we noticed how close some political races were and how close some votes were on moral matters? Even this Supreme court decision was teetering.

    I trust this shaking will be the cause of an awakening. Let's pray this be the turning point we have been hoping for.

  7. It appears that this court ruling has resulted in creating a hostile environment for a lot of school children....all under the disguise of fairness, equality, and tolerance.

  8. Yes, the Supreme Court just threw us to the wolves.
