The Battle for Your Child in the Classroom and in Church

The battle in the classroom:

As our kids prepare to go back to school the "Human Rights Campaign," America's largest homosexual advocacy group, is prepared to greet them---in the classroom.

The HRC says, "Generation Equality, the current group of high school and college aged young people, is more supportive of LGBT equality than any other generation in our country's history. As young people work to attain the goals of the queer community on their campuses, it is our hope that we can help by providing tools and facilitating connections."

"Attain the goals," is the operative word. Their goals are not a better understanding of people who choose to participate in homosexual relationships, but to indoctrinate and recruit kids at the most vulnerable time in their life using the authority of the classroom.

One such "tool" is their new outreach to teachers and administrators of elementary schools called, "Welcoming Schools."

The "
Welcoming School" project is, according to their website, "a new comprehensive guide for administrators, educators, parents and guardians who want to strengthen their school's approach to family diversity, gender stereotyping and bullying."

They say the program is designed for K-5 learning and is inclusive of Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, and Transgender families and individuals in the broader context of diversity.

And how does the National Education Association feel about this new outreach to kids?

You will not be surprised by the strong endorsement of Dennis Van Roekel, President of the NEA.

He says, "The 'Welcoming Schools Guide' is an innovative tool providing invaluable assistance for all students. This is a wonderful complement to existing anti-bullying programs and a welcome addition to any school's tool box for preparing students for today's diverse world."

Candi Cushman, with Focus on the Family says, "Under the innocent sounding 'Welcoming Schools,' this controversial stealth curriculum has already been piloted in several public school districts."

She says these activist groups realize that most parents would strongly object to these messages being promoted in public schools, so now they've started introducing homosexuality lessons---sometimes even sexually graphic information----in the name of "tolerance" under the cover of the "safe school initiates" or "anti-bullying" programs.

Gone are the days when children could be sent off to public school with a reasonable expectation that they would be safe---physically and mentally.

So-called "safe schools initiatives" and other anti-bullying programs are all to often programs developed primarily for indoctrination and recruitment by homosexual activists and for the advancement of their agenda.

I cannot overstate the importance of vigilance on the part of parents and grandparents as kids go back to school this year. Watch for any mention of "Welcoming Schools" in their curriculum.

Be aware of what your child is being taught. Remember the old clique, "You can't tell a book by it's cover," and neither can you tell a curriculum by its title.

Be very vigilant and be involved in your local school.

The HRC has also devised an outreach to churches:

You may be amazed at what they are doing to reach out to churches and their members, by reframing the issues using "conversations about the Bible." I will be sharing some of that tomorrow.

Be Vigilant. Be Informed. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.
