US, February 21, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - At the same time that news has come out that the Toronto Catholic School board has refused to participate in pro-homosexual activities, homosexual activists are making significant inroads in US schools, as a booklet titled, "Just the Facts about Sexual Orientation and Youth," is set to be distributed to all 16,000 school districts in the country.
The 24-page booklet by the National Education Association and American Psychological Association, tells students that homosexuality is a "normal expression of human sexuality".
"What's so scary and dogmatic about this report is that it communicates that religious-based viewpoints are harmful, and even dangerous," said Candi Cushman, education analyst for Focus on the Family Action.
The booklet particularly targets the idea that homosexuality is a condition that can be changed. It instructs educators, "Schools should be careful to avoid discussions of transformational ministry in their curriculum."
Brian Raum, senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, said that the talk of "inclusivity" in schools by homosexual groups is a veiled threat.
"What they're trying to do is create a fear factor here," he said. "There's nothing in the Constitution that would prohibit a teacher from presenting to a student all of the programs that are available, without endorsing or promoting any particular one."
The National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality, (NARTH) says that although "the aim of gay-affirmative counselling programs is humanitarian", the problem is that they do "much more" than discouraging scapegoating.
"In reality, they promote a particular worldview," present students with a set of "truth-claims that students are expected to adopt," and insist on conformity to these.
"These programs promote the value systems of a particular social group and denigrate the views of another, while at the same time, distorting science."
Where does it say that this will be given to the children?
People using socialized schooling and complain, are like people in government housing complaining about the location or the color of the paint. They can both always get out and stop taking the government hand out.
None of us get to opt out of the taxation used to propagandize these government school children. Also, “they” may also not be able to afford a private school. There is homeschooling, but that can be tough as well, especially fot the working parent. I don’t understand your lack of understanding of why this is an issue.
You'd be surprised then to have watched at least three attempts here in North Carolina, in as many months, by agencies of state government to make rules for themselves and official employee policy, trying to make an end run around the legislature.
The application to UNC Law School actually uses the word "queer" in it's Q&A. When queried, we were told the question was not required, but of course that fact was nowhere indicated on the application. Those in charge of this said it was "to communicate a more welcoming environment," which is to say, I suppose, that it would be unwelcoming not to ask potential law students explicitly if they were "queer." And on an application to an exclusive Law School? (At least UNC thinks they're exclusive.) What does this have to do with LEX REX?
Mike Adam's column on the GLBT's, of Giblets, as he calls them, nails it.
This is going on under the radar, everywhere.
Get your (future) kids out of the government skools ping!!!

For anyone interested in reading this garbage, there is a link to it at post #47.
Thanks for the ping.
I sent the article out to all the pastors and conservatives on my email list.
People dont get out of paying taxes for homeless shelters, or county health clinics either, but most recoil at the idea of using them or taking their kids there.
If the majority pulled out of the socialized school system, it wouldnt take long to do away with school taxes and return to a free market system. Sure we might have some socialized schooling for the very poor, just like we have socialized housing projects and food stamps, but the tax rate for that would be a fraction of the rate to pay for the full blown socialized system we have now.
Instead, people prefer to have others subsidize their lifestyle by feeding at the public trough. Then they want to complain about what they get that others are paying for. As I said above, I have as much sympathy for their complaints as I do for the people in the government housing projects who complain about the location or the color of the carpet

You should send the PDF that’s linked in #47, I only skimmed a few pages of it, but it even reads like propaganda.
A half a century ago this would’ve been seen as “corrupting a minor” and subject to criminal prosecution.
Shred it and burn the pieces!!! After all you don’t want some poor garbage collector or dumpster diver to become contaminated.
Thanks for doing some research on it.
It’s only a matter of time before they start arresting church officials for not giving in to the nazi activists.
Ok, I was born in 1953.
Sometimes our memories print the impression that events didn’t happen until we became aware of them.
Why don’t conservative groups issue a counter NON RELIGIOUS book to the same schools?
Double the amount.
It has to be non-religious because the schools have classified christianity as a crime.
