Pro-Homosexual Booklet to Be Distributed to All 16,000 US School Districts
LifeSiteNews ^ | 2/21/08 | Hillary White

US, February 21, 2008 ( - 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.

I can't imagine this will fly very well in the conservative areas and find it quite hard to believe that the Gay and Lesbian Group has the ability to put this in the hands of every student in the country.

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.

People don’t 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 wouldn’t 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.

Since it came out in '53... you are old! :-) Well, perhaps older than I am. There was a reprint in '81 I believe..., so maybe you're thinking of that? I originally read the book in high school and since my son is going to read Fahrenheit 451 soon I wanted to check it out again. It's amazing what I missed in that book 30 years ago that made much more sense today.

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.
