The Human Rights Campaign, a homosexual advocacy group, has produced a professional development film through its Welcoming Schools project for school staff and parents that features 6- to 12-year-olds talking about gays and lesbians.
The film is called What Do You Know? Six to Twelve Year Olds Talk about Gays and Lesbians," and it "features students from Massachusetts and Alabama discussing what they know about gay men and lesbians, what they hear at school, and what theyd like teachers to do, states the Welcoming Schools Web site.
The Web site has a two-minute trailer of the film and the description states that it is currently being used in Welcoming Schools trainings across the country and playing in film festivals in Mobile, Alabama; Spokane, Washington; and Barcelona, Spain.
On its home page, Welcoming Schools states that it is an LGBT-inclusive approach to addressing family diversity, gender stereotyping and bullying and name-calling in K-5 learning environments. Additionally, it offers a wide range of resources for school administrators and educators to support students who dont conform to gender norms.
Questions from CNSNews.com to the Human Rights Campaign -- including inquires about whether the training sessions are taking place in schools, how many schools are participating, and whether or not the video will be viewed by children -- were not answered before this story was posted.
(AP Photo) It was in second grade and we had like a big meeting, the first girl featured in the video says, followed by the remarks of another girl: The teacher said stuff like, Do you know what it means to be gay? and Is it a bad thing to be gay?
And then he just laid down this huge thing that was like, No teasing about who your parents love, says the next child in the video, who is wearing a shirt with the slogan Tough Guys Wear Pink.
Love is love and you shouldnt turn love into hate is basically what he said, the child says.
A lot of kids in our school know the word gay, even kindergartners know it, says another girl, who appears to be not much older than a kindergartner.
This guy came up and said, Ah man, youre gay, and Im like, What does that mean? a boy says.
Okay, so theres these two people, says a boy wearing a t-shirt with the slogan Got Moms? A boy and a boy and a girl and a girl and they love each other.
I wish more teachers could elaborate on it and talk about it more instead of like two sentences and then dismiss the subject, a girl says.
Yes, the final child featured in the trailer says. Elementary school kids know the word gay.
The Welcoming Schools Web site states that Teachers Respond, a four-minute video featuring four teachers sharing classroom stories, also is being produced and promises a study guide to go with the entire What Do You Know? film that will be available online soon.
The Web site includes experts praising the film, including one from the Southern Poverty Law Center.
In just 13 minutes, the children featured in the film What Do You Know, give us a wealth of insight, information and advice about how to include all children and families in our schools, Lecia J. Brooks, director of outreach at the center, is quoted as saying.
They let us know that we cant stop anti-gay name-calling and harassment unless we are willing to have dialogue and educate. I recommend this film for all school personnel and parents.
However, it's possible to keep propaganda out of the public schools. There's an action plan at "Stop Planned Parenthood" which could be applied to any of these promoters of deviant genital acts.
We've either got to stop them from getting to our kids, or we've got to get our kids out of these schools.
Can't? Yes, we can. There's nothing more important.
Ping out, please.
The end result of these Activist Groups agenda is to eventuality teach YOUNG children that it is ‘OK to have sex with adults’.
The only purpose of the Homo lobby is to make sex with children socially acceptable.
Any sane parent should remove their children from public school.
Exactly. And if you don't go along with this, you'll be called a bigot... then watch them go after the churches and private schools.
My kids know the word “gay” and I don’t have a problem with it. They know it’s a pejorative.
Fortunately, they go to Catholic Schools and I monitor to make sure their morality isn’t being undermined.
It is high time parents take an interest in what the government is doing to their chilfdren. This definitely calls for a school wide student boycott!
I say “screw” the public schools; get the good kids outa them and defund them. Anyone who has their kids in public schools is a fellow-traveller with the godless commie Democrats anyway.
I don’t have a problem with being called a bigot.
Call me anything you like, I know what is right and what is wrong.
It is wrong to teach children in elementary and Middle schools about homosexuality. It is wrong to teach in High school that it is just another preference.Homosexuality is an unnatural sickness.
If I am a bigot for saying that I could care less.
Adults can handle the term but watch how these groups will scare the kids into thinking their way because of the fear of being called a bigot.
It's very simple: practice clearly enunciating the word "abomination." Then ask the children to define it.

SEPARATION OF SCHOOL AND STATE!!! It's the only answer. 10th Amendment needs to be actually followed. Bring the fedgov into line with what it's supposed to be doing; everything not enumerated is for the States and the people.
Thank you! Freepmail on its way.
Socialist-entitlement schooling was evil from the beginning because children who attend risk learning to be comfortable with socialism. In only one to three generations of modern socialist-entitlement schooling our nation's citizens voted for Franklin D. Roosevelt for four terms!
Also...At their very best socialist-entitlement schooling offered up a lukewarm and generic Protestantism. What does Christ do with the lukewarm? He spits them out of His mouth! And.. the push has **always** been toward the final stage of complete godless secularism.
Modern government schooling has **always** been an abomination. Its curriculum and teacher training have **always** been under the control of progressives. It's push has **always** been in the direction of godlessness.
If government schooling is evil, what does it make those who **willingly** train to work in them, uphold them, and establish their policies?
Should a Christians and conservatives **willingly** train for and seek a job in an abortion center? Should they collect the money, answer the phones, sterilize the instruments, order the supplies, and hand the instruments to the abortionist? Should they do this and they say, Well..I sneak in a little Christianity to the workers and the clients once in a awhile! And...Once or twice in my career, I did talk a woman out of an abortion!
Well...Godless government schooling **forces** children to think and reason godlessly. These kids must just to be compliant in the classroom. How could it not be? Personally, I call that evil.
Personally, for myself, I have made a decision. I will **NOT** have a government teacher for a friend any more than I would have someone who worked in an abortion center for a friend. One place aborts little bodies, the other attempts to abort souls.
It desensitizes them. It destroys their natural and protective modesty.
**THAT** is the purpose! Grooming!
and still with all this proof about he queer agenda there are some who still say they have no problem with the queer marriage .
It is high time they understood that the civil unions of which we never hear about today was the start and then it was marriage .
I have called public schools “slaughterhouses” for 3 decades, because they slaughter the minds, hearts, morals and faith of children and corrupt them so badly they often cannot be fixed. And of course it’s worse now then when I first became aware of the problem.
The homo agenda is taking its mask off.
This has been going on a LONG time...
The videos below are from It’s Elementary, a 78-minute feature film produced by homosexual activists. These are actual scenes from elementary schools in Massachusetts and New York. It’s Elementary is meant to be a training video for homosexual activist teachers across the country. In addition, the film itself has been shown to schoolchildren in public schools in Massachusetts and elsewhere.
like the MSM media , they have took off their masks and been emboldened by getting their messiah elected.
agree, civil unions was a step and test the water so to speak.
These people which say”I know a homosexual and they are nice I have no problem with them getting married’ are missing the bigger picture and giving up their views in order to placate their homosexual pals of which the left wants and is needing.
The final step is for kids and grown adults to have sex legally and for men or women to seduce a child into sex.
I just wish these people would wake the hell up and stop being so naive.
I’m past the name calling, call me what ever you want but I wll not ever give up my views and my traditional views for two men wanting to to poke each other and then say they are married give me a kid from you.
Lesson 1: They misuse their equipment and suffer greatly for it.
(no further lessons required)
Little kids don’t care, older kids don’t need answers till they ask the questions
The activist groups should stay out of it for two reason: 1) To ensure some modicum of innocence for the young 2) They will likely confuse the young, especially if they talk about the six genders (male, female, transgendered, transsexual, two-spirited and inter-sexed).
The university is the source of this hellish nonsense and until the university is thoroughly purged this will continue and social values and children safety will continue to decline, e.g., “normalizing” pedophilia is already on the horizon. Homeschooling is a bandage and not a long term solution. Government listens to these so called experts from the university over and above their voting constituents and when people hear about the new changes they are horrified and up in arms. This happened in Ontario, Canada with the Liberal government and the new sex ed curriculum was shut down due to public out cry. Again, the university is the ultimate source and it will continue to breed people, like government officials, who will be sympathetic to the progressive changes.
A lot of the moral underpinning and justification of the university is under the ruse of compassion and equality. And this applies to public and secondary schools too. The concern over “bullying” in the schools is just a recent tool to further the sexual agenda of these deviants in the university. Bullying is not a neutral concern but aligned with sex education’s push for homosexuality. It was probably devised and introduced explicitly for that purpose alone. The university flatters itself that it is the vanguard, that it is progressive, the cutting edge, so original, etc. In the arts, humanities and social sciences these are the traditional virtues of the left whose purpose is to radicalize and revolutionize society while thinking they are doing good. These leftist social scientists/professors should be bullied out of office as far as I’m concerned. An affluent, none serious society could at one time laugh at it and tolerate these chic pretensions. Today’s society can’t any longer or do so at their peril.
I agree and the reason is that universities have been flying untethered from their biblical foundations for decades, and in some cases for more than a century. If the founders of Western Civilization's greatest universities could see the abject godlessness that permeates every crevice of these modern institutions, they would be appalled!
What to do about it?
I agree that although homeschooling will continue its growth for a time it will never be a major force in directing government education policy. What is needed is a multi-pronged and simultaneous approach:
** Vouchers, charters, and tax credits can help build the private infrastructure for eventual complete privatization of all K-12 schooling. We must get as many children out of the godless government schools as possible, and work for their complete shut down.
** Charles Murray has a good idea: qualifying exams. In fact he proposes eliminating all B.S. and B.A. degrees except for a handful of highly technical professions. Keeping kids off of the university campus does two things: 1) limits the indoctrination exposure 2) Puts Marxist professors out of work and into to the private market. ( Personally, I don't see why qualifying exams couldn't start in the first grade. The less time spent in institutional schooling, the better!)
** Worldwide spiritual revival. The first emphasis must be on the parent's own children, and keeping them out of the godless government schools is a major part of that missionary effort. The next most important mission field is that of their congregation's children. When these needs are met, then move on to town, city, state, nation, and world.
