The Education Establishment And The Homosexual Agenda

By William R. Alford

With an eye for the future, the battleground for gay activists is in the schools and children are the targets, a new book, The Homosexual Agenda reveals, while developments in at least one state capitol seem to bear the authors out.

Quoted in the book is a rallying point from a 1999 Gay Lesbian Straight Educational Network (GLSEN) conference:

The fear of the religious right is that the schools of today will be the governments of tomorrow. And you know, they're right. If we do our jobs right, we're going to raise a generation of kids who don't believe the claims of the religious right.

The authors of the book, Alan Sears and Craig Osten describe a phenomenon that does more than threaten religious freedom. The 'sexual orientation community' is actively working to impose their value system upon the rest of society. The chapter entitled "Stupid Parents, 'Enlightened Kids'" is of particular interest to those who are concerned about childhood indoctrination.

Sears and Osten quote homosexual activist Chuck Jones: "This is war, so act accordingly." How is this war waged in the classroom? Gay orthodoxy is being imposed upon minor children in class as undisputable fact, rather then even the subject of controversy or debate.

A high school boy found himself made fodder for ridicule when he questioned a biology teacher's assertion that homosexuality is genetic: "What's the matter, Kyle? Are you unsure of your sexuality?" As the other students laughed, the teacher went on, "did you know that the people who scream the loudest turn out to be gay themselves?"

Before his historic loss, California Governor Gray Davis signed a sex education law that compels students to "adopt a healthy attitude towards homosexuality." According to Amy Koons at the Capitol Resource Institute in Sacramento, CA, schools are themselves embracing the law on which the ink has scarcely dried.

"I had a distraught mother tell me that her twin sons came home thinking that 70 percent of the population is homosexual," Koons told AIA. An openly lesbian legislator, State Senator Sheila Kuehl, introduced California's new sex education law, which the California teachers' union supported. Kuehl, a former child star, appeared in the television series Dobie Gillis.

In The Homosexual Agenda, Sears and Osten report that the nation's largest teachers' union, the National Education Association, is enthusiastically developing programs to incorporate the gay agenda into public school curricula for children of all ages. Many of them are in place today and have been for some years now.

"GLSEN regularly collaborates with other national education organizations to broaden the reach of our message and materials," the lobbying groups executive director, Kevin Jennings writes in a recent fundraising letter.

"For example, last year we helped the National Education Association-the nation's largest teacher's union with 2.7 million members-pass sweeping new policies directing its members to address lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues in their work."

Agendized educators are exploiting the confusion that characterizes normal adolescence, according to Craig and Osten in The Homosexual Agenda. . "As bodies change and hormones rage," the authors explain, youths are told that their feelings may indicate that they are bisexual. Further, heterosexuality is portrayed as being passé, while 'alternative' sexuality is promoted as chic and more likely to result in peer acceptance.

Children as young as kindergarteners are to be informed, according to statements cited in the book, that a "family is a 'unit of two or more persons, related either by birth or by choice, who may or may not live together.'" Further, from a very young age, children must be taught that "all families should be validated" - even those "with no dads, three dads or a 14-year-old mom."

The authors point out that escape from public schools is not necessarily a definitive escape from such indoctrination. The NEA is also trying to have state governments force private schools and even home-schoolers to teach pro-gay and lesbian material if their diplomas are to be recognized as valid.

Organizations such as the aforementioned GLSEN are targeting children for gay advocacy participation, Sears and Osten point out. The book describes a Day of Silence that GLSEN orchestrates every year, wherein students are not to speak. Instead they are to present a card explaining that they will not speak that day in support of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people.

Children are told that friends and family members who hold that homosexuality is wrong should be considered enemies and treated as such, according to research done by the authors. Alienating children from their family and indoctrinating them in school is a small price to pay if the Homosexual Agenda is to be realized, the authors conclude. Sears and Osten head the Alliance Defense Fund.

book review covering how children are targeted by the Left for indoctrination. Tolerance is not enough. Those who hold that homosexuality is wrong are the ones not to be tolerated.

There are tons of Homosexual groups which spend tens of millions, and more, lobbying Government, yet they have no "agenda" say some.

Get ready to be pummeled in this thread, because any claim of there being a "Homosexual Agenda" is shouted down around this place.

Oh there are only a handful of gay activists who post on this forum and they are hardly capable of pummelling anyone.

I don't deny that other lobbyists have an agenda.

To suggest that a political LOBBY has NO AGENDA is an insult to anyone's intelligence.

This is a book review. I posted it here, because a fan keeps sending me e-mails venting his anger at the temerity of even reviewing the book. After all, being that they are fascists, they cannot tolerate an alternative point of view.

Here is his dialog. I invited him to continue it here:

The only thing missing from your booga booga rant is a plea at the end for money.

Sorry, I probably wasn't clear. Your writings are a rehash of old tactics. For example:

Here you write:

"Organizations such as the aforementioned GLSEN are targeting children for gay advocacy participation, Sears and Osten point out. The book describes a Day of Silence that GLSEN orchestrates every year, wherein students are not to speak. Instead they are to present a card explaining that they will not speak that day in support of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people."


Years ago, the German party in power at the time wrote:

Jews think it's ok to murder children
"The Jew Lorre in the role of a child murderer. Not the murderer but the victim is guilty, according to this film, which presents the criminal sympathetically, to gloss over and excuse the crime." - Nazi propaganda film, "The Eternal Jew," http://www.holocaust-history.org/der-ewige-jude/stills.shtml


I'm not accusing you of accusing gays of child murder, however, your tactic is a pretty good rehash of tried and true ploys of the past. You don't like gay people so you're going to say they're after the children. Thank you Anita Bryant!


If you'd like a more complete comparison of religious right speech verses Nazi speech, you can look here:

Some of the quotes are old but they can be easily updated with current quotes from the Religious Reich.

I think they're paid to post on here...

Any thread with the title "Gay" or "homosexual" brings them out like the roaches that they are.

"a 'family is a "unit of two or more persons, related either by birth or by choice, who may or may not live together."'"

By this definition, I am now family with Bill Gates (my choice) and very wealthy, right?

What is the rough percentage of gay's. Well less than 10 %. More like 3 %.

For such a minority they sure make a lot of noise.

"...when straights are asked by pollsters for a formal estimate, the figure played back most often is the '10% gay' statistic which our propagandists have been drilling into their heads for years."

They can say what they want. Homeschoolers are the government of the future. As "war" heats up they may not be able to take the counteroffensive. As demonrats are finding out even the sheeple are turning them off in droves. They cant help but alienate anyone with morals when they embrace perversion.
And I believ in equality and fairness for everyone, but they mess with children and they are asking for the response they get. No more "special interest" privileges!

Ah, but they are after the children. Consider the writing of a very famous ancient Greek (hint: His name begins with 'P' & ends in an 'O') wherein we find lines like - the man lusts for the boy as the wolf for the lamb.

Human nature tends to change at the speed of mammalian evolution - just how much has the "queer qommunity" changed since the ancient Greeks? Arguably, not much.

I think that a more complete comparison could be made using Nazi quotes and liberal quotes about Christians and conservatives.
