Founder of GLSEN Joins Obama Team

Kevin Jennings, founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, is the new assistant education secretary for "Safe and Drug-Free Schools".

His organization, at it's core, is designed to promote the idea that some children are born homosexual, normalize homosexual behavior and teach students that opposition to homosexuality or transgerderism is a form of oppression.

GLSEN's manual, "The Jump Start Guide," specifically instructs students in the tactics of homosexual activism, such as, requesting that school boards revise their anti-harassment and anti-discrimination policies and to help teachers create lesson plans for teaching lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender history, etc.

However, GLSEN recommendations go way beyond mere activism and advocacy.

In the story I have linked above, CNS News has done an in depth look at Jennings' organization and what it is really promoting in our schools.

I strongly recommend you read it.

As is often the case, homosexual activism appears as one thing on the surface, but something very different when you take a closer look. GLSEN is a profound example. CNS takes a closer look.

They identify how Jennings' organization is indoctrinating kids in the public school on subjects such as, transgenderism and prejudice and how to define it. They are also heavy into what they call, "adultism," which is characterized by "disrespect towards the intelligence, judgment, emotional life and leadership or physical being of young people."

The manual instructs the kids on how to conduct workshops on adultism for adult groups with which they wish to partner.

Absorb that for a moment.

Dr. Jill Biden, Vice-President Joe Biden's wife, told GLSEN at their annual "Respect Awards" event on June 1, "Starting next month (Education) Secretary Duncan will have an excellent partner in his work."

She said the appointment of Jennings was "great news."

She told the activists that, "The task ahead is not simple, but you will prevail because you are determined, and---quite simply---you are right."

And there is the philosophy of the Obama Administration. This is beyond the "fox guarding the henhouse." It is tragic. And it should cause every parent to re-think how and where their child will be educated. There are more than 4000 such clubs in public schools across the country.

God help us and God help our children.
