Posted on 04/30/2002 10:58:31 PM PDT by Buffalo Bob
(AgapePress) - A nationally known advocate of traditional family values says while school boards across the country claim they want "tolerance" for homosexuals, the real agenda is something quite different.
The Broward County, Florida, school board has voted to permit a homosexual "tolerance" group to train teachers in what it calls "fighting harassment." The board is endorsing an agreement with the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network, which will provide the training.
Janet Folger of the Center for Reclaiming America says programs like this have nothing to do with tolerance or diversity. She says according to GLSENs director, it is about bringing the radical homosexual agenda into schools, to indoctrinate children at a young, impressionable age.
"The school board says its about harassment, its about tolerance. Well, what does GLSEN say?" she asks. "The executive director, Kevin Jennings, says that it is about promoting homosexuality. Thats 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.' "
Folger also has profanity-laced comments from Jennings on tape, where his attitude toward Christianity is clearly stated. "This is what he thinks," Folger says. "He said, I dont care what they think. Drop dead."
Folger says increasingly, school boards across the country are acting as willing accomplices to the radical homosexual agenda.
There they go again...
The article mentions nothing about fighting this. I'd be interested in knowing what Janet Folger and her group are doing to shut this down.
Promoting filth and degradation is a fulltime job, it takes a constant drum beat to numb society to the base and repugnant reality of perversion. If a lie is repeated long enough it becomes truth to societies oblivious lemmings. Normalizing disordered behavior leads to anarchy, next is pedophilia, incest and bestiality, all courtesy of our fellow Liberaltarians.
It had nothing to do with what the taxpayers and loving parents wanted. It's about hijacking the minds of their children and exterminating our culture in place of their vision for America's future...which appears bleaker every day.
Being one of the Torrance parents that has been fighting this issue since last year, it is quite a relief that we have been successful in getting G.L.I.D.E. removed from this years Human Resources Convocation. Last year it was P-FLAG that we were fighting against.
Although we understand the need for tolerance to all, the pro-homosexual groups that were at the School Board meeting Monday night (4/1) can only accept one side. Theirs! Typical, I'm afraid, of these types of groups that feel they only know what is best for our children.
Background: In 2000 parents spoke out, en force, against the Torrance, CA. School Board allowing P-FLAG to be a part of the HR forum being held at North Torrance High School, and West Torrance High School. The school board President, Gary Kuwahara, Beth Wilson, and one other board member voted for it in spite of our protests. Mr. Kuwahara claimed that those parents and residents protesting the group didn't speak for the community, even though they were clearly the majority. I guess the minority speaks for the community. Go figure.
At that point us parents were so incensed, and frustrated, that we formed a parents group called P.U.S.H.E.S (Parents United to Stop Homosexuality Education in our Schools). We raised funds through garage sales, and donations. to put two full page ads into our local paper "The Daily Breeze" and that's when "the wave" started. Which is exactly what we wanted.
I'm sorry to say that most of the public is not even aware of what is going on around them, but once our first full page ad was printed the calls, and donations, started coming in. We printed out flyers to inform the public of this very controversial group speaking to our students, and most were supportive.
One of P-FLAG's representatives at this forum was a transexual. He was an ex-CIF football player in school, and a Vietnam Veteran. After marrying and having two daughters, he became a she. He never attained the unconditional acceptance from his daughters even though he/she continued the marriage to his/her wife. Pretty weird and very selfish of him/her, if you ask me.
So, we have been fighting for this result for over a year, and are very pleased of the outcome. Our children can be taught how to be tolerant at home, from their parents. We also have very qualified teachers in the Torrance School District who can generically teach tolerance for all, without special interest groups coming in to override parents' instruction from home.
Mr. Kuwahara was noticeably unjust to the pro-family folks, and lenient to the behaviors of the pro-homosexual group in attendance at the meeting on Monday night. It has not gone unnoticed by any stretch of the imagination, and I will deal with him on a personal level in the next day or two. Beth Wilson even tried to accuse us of censorship, because now her children won't be allowed the opportunity to hear G.L.I.D.E.'s message. I reminded Ms. Wilson that she is more than welcome to have G.L.I.D.E. come to her home and speak to her children, or she can organize a meeting away from our tax-funded campuses. I told her that the censorship accusation was more accurately directed to the school board for not allowing those of us with speeches to use our full five minutes alotted time, and instead cut us off while we introduced a host of frightening statistics that she and Gary Kuwahara didn't want stated.
Parents are now taking a stand all across this country against the lies that have been fed to us for decades. Facts that have been researched and corrected, or many times debunked. But, the changes to these facts have been profoundly denied by the pro-homosexual advocates.
You will not see me use the term "Gay", as it is clearly not a "Gay" lifestyle. Let's continue to protect our children from forced indoctrinations by selfish groups spouting tolerance, diversity, and safe schools.
Parents, grandparents, and others who are concerned about the homosexual agenda will find some useful information in GrandMoM's thread:
She took my phrase and altered it a little, but I'm going to give her a pass, since she's doin' right.
Fighting to win means more than showing up at school board meetings, or bombarding them with e-mails. When those tactics don't work, take the next step and hit the school board in the pocket book. Unfortunately, most of the angry parents in Broward County will still pack their kids off to government schools, where they can be thoroughly indoctrinated in the gay rights agenda and other liberal causes...
That was just to give the caring liberals something to hide behind.
School Boards and the like are allowing parents to speak not because they want to hear that many are opposed to this but as a formality. Their minds are already made up as to what will be taught to the kids.
The only way to fight and win is to remove your child from a govt. school. As I see it, we can talk til we're all blue in the face and it does not matter to thse people. I think they delight in seeing angry parents.
The way we win is by removing the kids which is legal in all 50 states. However, I do believe that once a child is in govt. school, it is much more difficult to remove that child as they will put up a fight. California is a good example of this.
