ERIE, ILLINOIS, June 25, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) An Illinois school district has bucked the national homosexual lobby by voting to remove books that promote same-sex marriage or mainstream alternate lifestyles.
After parents complained about The Family Book, which the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) recommends to naturalize and celebrate family diversity, the Erie Community Unit School District 1 voted to remove all GLSEN curriculum from the district. The vote was 5-2.
Ann Schipper, the mother of three children in the system, said the curriculum completely wipes away what my kids have learned at church and at home, and it creates confusion in them.
GLSENs Ready, Set, Respect! curriculum, aimed at elementary school students as young as kindergarten, intentionally hopes to alter young childrens definition of family and sexual identity.
Its toolkit states: The elementary school years offer a wonderful and important opportunity to instill and/or nurture positive attitudes and respect for individual, family and cultural differences, including diversity related to sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
The guidelines recommend books like Cheryl Kilodavis My Princess Boy, intended for grades K-2, or Uncle Bobbys Wedding, which introduces students to the idea of same-sex marriage.
Other suggested activities include having children draw pictures of Cinderella in a knights armor, Spiderman wearing a magic tiara, and other gender-bending storybook heroes.
Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute, has written that the attempt to foist this curriculum on unsuspecting children is significant, because cultural change rarely happens through dramatic, single events, but rather through the slow, accretion of little events that we ignore or dismiss as minor Once in, they gradually increase the number and directness of homosexuality-affirming messages.
GLSEN called the parent-directed vote deeply counter-productive and is urging fellow homosexual activists nationwide to pressure the school district to reverse itself.
Its tragic that selfish adults deliberately create motherless or fatherless family structures, Higgins wrote, but schools have neither the obligation nor the right to affirm those immoral structures.
She wrote that since so few public school administrations and teachers with the wisdom and spine to oppose the efforts of homosexual activists to impose their beliefs on public schools or infuse curricula with their beliefs the courage of the Erie Community Unit School District stands out.
Well, there’s Chicagostan and then there’s Sensible Redneck Illinois.
Typical of these glsen bullies, they want the whole country to hound Erie about it. Methinks Erie will get more national attaboys than catcalls.
Police say a veteran San Francisco gay rights advocate had images of children as young as a year-old engaging in sex acts with adults.
The San Francisco Chronicle ( http://bit.ly/MRQeJI) says 66-year-old Larry Brinkin has been arrested and booked for investigation of felony possession of child pornography.
Charges could be filed as early as Tuesday.
Brinkin worked for the San Francisco Human Rights Commission before his retirement in 2010.
Investigators say Brinkin had pornographic images on email attachments that appear to show infants and toddlers being sodomized and performing oral sex on men.
Finally a school district with the fortitude to do the right thing. Let see, since the fag community is about the same percentage as the bigot community, perhaps whenever the subject of bringing in the homo agenda comes up, someone should suggest a curriculum also be developed for the Ayrian Brotherhood or the KKK. Afterall, the children must be exposed to all out of the mainstream ideas, why not these too?
Psychological abuse of little children by perverts who have hijacked public education. Are these "guidelines" in use in other school districts throughout the country?
“the curriculum completely wipes away what my kids have learned at church and at home, and it creates confusion in them.”
WHICH IS EXACTLY THE POINT....
As Mark Levin has said several times to his (understandably) frustrated listeners: “Get involved in your local school and government”. That's how we can effect change, one locality at a time.
“mainstream alternate lifestyles...?”
How is less than 2% mainstream?...Get rid of all this homo agenda bullcrap in public education! Teach kids how to balance a check book, how to do basic math and maybe even tie their shoes. The whack left nut jobs in public education take our tax money and perform a dumb and dumber lobotomy on every kid. It’s pure BS!
Erie is definitely in the "Sensible Redneck Illinois" zone ... closest major road is the Ronald Reagan Memorial Highway.
Leftists count on this local inactivity and ambivalence and rush in to fill the void. It is a battle we often lose merely by default.
