'Gay' activist to oversee public classroom 'safety'
WorldNetDaily ^ | May 29, 2009 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 05/29/2009 11:48:56 PM PDT by scripter

The founder of the homosexual activist group GLSEN, which promotes homosexual clubs in high schools, middle schools and grade schools and is the driving force behind the annual "Day of Silence" celebration of homosexuality in many districts, has been handed a federal appointment where he will be responsible for overseeing "safety" in the nation's public schools.

...

The appointment of Kevin Jennings was posted – with little fanfare – on a government list of federal jobs recently. He was named by U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan to be the Assistant Deputy Secretary in the Office of Safe Schools.

...

"In his own writings and books listed on the GLSEN [Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network] Website, I've reported, Kevin Jennings has given tacit nods of approval to sex between young teens and adults," Harvey told WND. "In addition to that, the writings and books, many of which I've read and are incredibly graphic, seem to normalize early teen same-sex sexual behaviors."

Geez.......

I certainly don’t want to see homosexuals beaten up or abused or anything like that. HOWEVER, can I ask why we need to talk about homosexuality in schools at all???????

We should teach kids to be respectful of all, and not to pick on anyone for any reason. If we do that, then there’s no need for Days of Silence and sensitivity training based on politically correct groups who have a grievance.

I don’t think we need to discuss homosexuality at all in schools. When these kids graduate from high school, if they feel any desire towards homosexuality, they will explore that lifestyle as a consenting adult. There’s no need to influence young people who are still maturing and going through puberty and growing, with concepts of sexuality such as same-sex attractions.

GLSEN is a homosexual activist organization. It's mission is to fill the eyes and ears of the precious children in our public schools with homosexual propaganda. I encourage anyone who wants to know more about GLSEN and its founder, Kevin Jennings, to read through the information and articles linked below.

GLSEN needs to be booted out of the public schools.

An excerpt from 'Queering the Schools' with response from Kevin Jennings, Executive Director of GLSEN and the editors response to Kevin Jennings.

An excerpt from "Targeting Children - Part two: How the homosexual movement uses public schools as instruments of change"

( http://www.afa.net/homosexual_agenda/childrenb.asp )

"GLSEN activist and New York kindergarten teacher Jaki Williams said starting in kindergarten is a must, since children at that age are still developing their ideas about the world around them. Even at that age, she said, “the saturation process needs to begin.”

Williams, in fact, is a model teacher when it comes to this “saturation” process. She regularly initiates conversations with her children by reading to them such controversial books as Heather Has Two Mommies, Daddy’s Roommate, and One Dad, Two Dads, Browns Dads, Blue Dads. She also hosts a viewing of the video Both of My Moms’ Names Are Judy: Children of Lesbians and Gays Speak Out, produced by a San Francisco pro-homosexual advocacy group.

According to one writer for The Lambda Report, who infiltrated a 1997 GLSEN workshop, one former teacher admitted that changing the mind of a child required more than a one-time effort. She said she had to expose her children to a constant stream of homosexual words and images, because "It’s really a conditioning process."


An excerpt from "Example Offered of Real Homosexual Agenda in America's Schools"

( http://www.FreeRepublic.com/focus/news/675813/posts )

"The school board says it’s about harassment, it’s about tolerance. Well, what does GLSEN say?" she asks. "The executive director, Kevin Jennings, says that it is about promoting homosexuality. That’s what he said is his mission. Let me read you his quote. He said, ‘Promoting homosexuality -- we can make it happen. That is our mission from this day forward.’ "

Folger describes the prospects as "frightening." "We had people that went into the GLSEN meetings. And make no mistake, this is not about tolerance in meeting with teachers -- it's about getting to the children," she says. "In fact, it was in that GLSEN meeting, locally held, that they said, 'We need this agreement to get to the children.' "


An excerpt from "When Silence Would Have Been Golden"

( www.cultureandfamily.org/articledisplay.asp?id=2580&department=CFI&categoryid=papers )

GLSEN'S JENNINGS: !&%#! THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT!

Addressing a church audience on March 20, 2000 in New York City — just days before "Fistgate" — GLSEN Executive Director Kevin Jennings offered a stinging (and quite intolerant) assessment of how to deal with religious conservatives:

Twenty percent of people are hard-core fair-minded [pro-homosexual] people. Twenty percent are hard-core [anti-homosexual] bigots. We need to ignore the hard-core bigots, get more of the hard-core fair-minded people to speak up, and we'll pull that 60 percent [of people in the middle] … over to our side. That's really what I think our strategy has to be. We have to quit being afraid of the religious right. We also have to quit — … I'm trying to find a way to say this. I'm trying not to say, '[F---] 'em!' which is what I want to say, because I don't care what they think! [audience laughter] Drop dead!9

It should be noted that GLSEN and Jennings make heavy use of the words "respect" and "tolerance" in their public rhetoric and in descriptions of their programs.10

JENNINGS: OK TO PROMOTE HOMOSEXUALITY IN SCHOOLS

Although Jennings has employed manipulative methods that exaggerate homosexual victimhood to advance his pro-"gay" agenda in schools, he has occasionally been frank about GLSEN's real agenda:

I'd like five years from now for most Americans when they hear the word GLSEN to think, "Ooh, that's good for kids." … Sane people keep the world the same [sh---y] old way it is now. It's the [crazy] people who think, "No, I can envision a day when straight people say, 'So what if you're promoting homosexuality?' or [when] straight kids say, 'Hey, why don't you and your boyfriend come over before you go to the prom and try your tuxes on at my house?'" … [I]f we believe that can happen, we can make it happen. The only thing that will stop us is our lack of faith that we can make it happen. That is our mission from this day forward.11

BRAINWASHING KINDERGARTNERS

At the same 1997 regional GLSEN conference where Kevin Jennings revealed his goal to openly promote homosexuality in schools, New York teacher and GLSEN activist Jaki Williams led a workshop titled "Inclusive Kindergartens." What follows is Williams' chilling advice to other teachers and fellow GLSEN activists on how to push pro-homosexual themes on very young, impressionable children:

Children in the kindergarten age are "developing their superego," Williams said, and "that's when the saturation process needs to begin." … She explained that "five-year-olds really are very interested in the big questions. They're very interested in sex, death, and love, and they ask those questions, and they talk about them. And we want to help them find the answers … on their level." To initiate conversation, Williams said she has her class read from an assortment of pro-homosexual children's books, such as "Heather Has Two Mommies" and "One Dad, Two Dads, Brown Dad, Blue Dads."15

Quite so, however, your comments are based on the theory that GLBT community organsisers want equal status. They dont. They want superior rights to everyone else, based on the supposition they are an “oppressed minority”.

Bingo. Why get into the specifics of it all (especially on a topic like sex)? That's the parents job to discuss with their own children in the way they believe is appropriate, IMHO.

Don't teach kids "diversity," teach them to love one another. Each time I hear my pastor speak, I understand what it means to "hate the sin, love the sinner." I am constantly trying to be the person God wants me to be and that means following his rules. But since we've taken God out of the schools...we've left kids at the mercy of the liberals and hardcore leftists.

THIS, right here, is in large part what is wrong with our public schools. Rather than teach reading, writing, arithmetic, true history, economics, critical thinking skills, and science, money and class time is wasted on this nonsense, global warming, and socialism group think. Education? More like education prevention.

There is nothing wrong with a child, who is at a vulnerable age and that is being subjected to such blatant indoctrination, voicing his belief that the values of homosexual culture are debased and destructive - in the child's own words, of course. This isn't picking on anyone.

What constitutes 'bullying' and 'teasing' to the homo-activist is ANY suggestion, no matter how reasoned or fact-based, that casts the slightest aspersion on homosexual behavior - it is considered the worst type of bullying, worthy of expulsion or, worse, 'sensitivity training.' The latest school board outrage in Alameda School district was enacted because kids were calling other kids 'gay' as a fun-loving put down, for crying out loud.

It’s gotten to the point where I’m practically in tears every time I read one of these articles. What kind of world are we leaving for our children and grandchildren?

It’s not my business what consenting adults do in privacy, but when those adults start making it the business of children, our civilization is headed down the wrong path.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

If homosexuals would keep their private lives private like they say it is, there wouldn’t be any *discrimination* against them.

Instead, they push it in everyone’s face and then cry foul when people object.

They don’t want equal rights, which they already have as American citizens, they want special privileges based on nothing more than lifestyle choice.

And there’s NO NEED AT ALL for them to be pushing it kids. That’s just child abuse.

I normally don’t ping the homeschool list to threads which qualify for the Another Reason to Homeschool List, but this article and the information contained in the responses on this thread are very alarming and need to be seen.

So read it and weep, for what has become of our country and our society.

And fight it when and where you can.

I totally agree with you. I believe school is for learning the things like reading , English, math, languages etc. Sex ought to be left out of school. However if this gay agenda is going to be pushed down our children's throats we as parents better tell our children what gay sex really is. I don't like the thought but rather then have some queer tell my child all the wonderful (grr) crap about homo sex I will tell her myself.

This was one of the many reasons I decided to home school. I just hope & pray that the gays don't try to end home schooling.

I do know that if they were honest with the children & told them just what gay sex truly is most children would be grossed out. The gay agenda wants to use our children as their future partners. They call us normal families breeders and I truly resent that. What they are doing is totally gross, disgusting & parents ought to rise up & say enough. There is no normal reason to expose children to this, none at all.

Yup, I guess in addition to pushing our kids around, stealing their lunch money, and teaching them filthy language, we homeschooling parents are going to have to teach them about perversions, just to make sure they are properly “socialized” at home... /s

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Until the mid-20th century, government schools were essentially government established Protestant Christian schools. (Just check out old textbooks if you doubt this statement)

Government schools came about due to the virulent anti-Catholicism of the 19th century.....So!...This is what we have now!

Those foolish,foolish, foolish, 19th century Protestants!!!!

Any government powerful enough to force a Protestant worldview on other people's children is powerful enough to force atheistic, anti-Christian, and perverted homosexuality on your children! ( And,,,make you pay for it!)

Oh...Some might say that parents have the “choice” to pay for private schooling or homeschooling. I call it a “choice” to by ransom your children. Some call it paying “jinza!”

And...Remember behind every government school teacher and principal stands an armed policeman. Refuse to pay for a homosexual agenda that establishes religious worldview that a citizen finds abhorrent, and armed police will eventually take action. If a citizen is sufficient resistant, those armed police are prepared to kill him.

Considering the amount of waking hours a kid spends in school, at school activities, and with his friends vs. with his parents afterwards, yeah, it does ring hollow.
