Alameda, CA may introduce gay issues to schools//

playground

Elementary schools in Alameda may introduce lesson plans that address gay and lesbian issues. But first, the school district is asking parents for their input. The issue is already turning controversial.

Storybooks, a video and group discussions will be part of a lesson plan introduced in kindergarten.

But some parents and pro-family advocacy groups say the curriculum is not age-appropriate.

“This is not the role of the school,” Capitol Resource Institute spokesperson Karen England said. “These are issues that belong at home and these are discussions that belong at home, they certainly do not belong in the kindergarten classrooms of our public schools.”

They just don’t stop do they. It seems the GLBT community won’t rest until every child has been brainwashed with their moral-less propaganda. Keep your eyes open folks, make sure this doesn’t happen in your child’s school.

Stop Harvey Milk Day in CA Public Schools/ SB 572//

milk_penn320Oppose the pro-gay “commemorative exercises” of SB 572 aka Harvey Milk Day

Check out the following info from Beetle Blogger’s Post:

Thanks Beetle!!!!!

Children are already being indoctrinated into the homosexual lifestyle in government schools, but a new bill in the California Legislature would make things much worse.

SB 572 by homosexual activist state senator Mark Leno of San Francisco, a Democrat, would create an official “gay day” called Harvey Milk Day. It would be pushed on every California government school, affecting children as young as kindergarten.

I don’t get it. Hollywood makes a movie and now all of a sudden some guy gets his own “day” in public school? The gay community has several “days” already don’t they? I’m more concerned with this bill then with researching gay history,  however, it would seem that if gays were so sentimental about Harvery Milk, they would have tried to get him a “day” even before Hollywood thought they could make a mint with that movie. Maybe they did, and I just haven’t heard about it…

Can you even believe this? Seriously folks, we do NOT need an official “gay day.” Don’t the activists try to make every day “gay day” already? They needn’t worry about us forgetting they are out there,  perverting society, robbing children of their innocence, bombarding public schools with their trash, trying to destroy marriages and families, oh, no, we  won’t forget them…they are 24/7 trying to indoctrinate this country with their lack of morals  and values and perverted lifestyle.  Personally, I’m pretty sick of it!

If you can’t afford to send your kids to private school, and if you work and can’t home school them, then you need to get involved in fighting this bill. Use the info below to contact our representatives and let them know this bill’s gotta go!

School website promotes homosexual agenda// shocker huh? Nah, not really…

bus1A California school district is coming under fire for a homosexual website being funded with taxpayer dollars. The San Francisco Unified School district has launched a “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning” (LGBTQ) website for students in order to create a “safe space for all students” and promote activities both in the classroom and outside. Carrying the inviting web address “HealthierSF.org,” the website includes links promoting Gay Pride Celebration Month, Day of Silence, and Gay/Straight Alliance clubs.

This is not what our tax dollars should be funding. How many websites has this district provided for kids interested in music or sports or Christian family values? You get the point… The school district has no business providing homosexual information to students, especially with tax payer dollars. I think that’s a gross misuse of money, and that money is going to fund something for a small minority that does not reflect the values of the entire student body or their parents.

Consequences of Civil Unions and the Governmental Elevation of Same-sex Relationships

This post is just to refresh everyone’s memories and shed some light on the subject for those who might still be confused about the horrific damaging effects of SSM… (the info was directed at the voters of Hawaii– letting them know of the chaos that has been plaguing the country with regards to SSM).

Negative Impacts on Families and Children

Intentionally denying children both a mother and a father elevates the wants of adults over the needs of children. The result of same-sex “marriage” to satisfy the desires of adults means that children no longer have a right to their parents. Instead, same-sex couples have a right to get children. It’s as though children are a commodity to have. “I want to have a car. I want to have a house. I want to have a child.”

Homophobia Is Just a Homosexual Propaganda Term// a term they made up

As we have known all along, homophobia is just a propaganda term used by the homosexual activist community to harass those of use who value marriage and traditional family values, and as Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel describes:

is designed to label negatively anyone who holds traditional values about human sexuality and marriage. He believes parents should be in an uproar. “We have here public education once again trying to co-opt the proper role of parents, trying to impose their ideology on children whether or not that happens to be the ideology that parents share,” he points out.

Sarah Arnold, a Wisconson public high school teacher is apparently so concerned with this made up term, that she created a program for her students entitled, “Exposing Hidden Homophobia. ” She heard an “anti-gay undertone” in her students conversations and took it upon herself to educate her English students on the issue. Arnold claims that although the student body is mostly white, there are “unacknowledged” demographics at her school. So she decided to  address these hidden demographics, i.e. the GLBT students (gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered) and pass it off as an English lesson.

The program Arnold developed included “in-depth exploration of depictions” of homosexuality in mass media; several homosexual-themed films, documentaries, books and novels; internet research on “the nature of homophobia”; and a “homophobia questionnaire” coupled with a “heterosexual questionnaire” designed to take questions “commonly asked of homosexuals and ask them of heterosexuals” – e.g., “When did you decide to become heterosexual?'”

Who asks a child that? And yes, for those of you who might not realize it, high school students are still children. The source material that this teacher has exposed these children to is and outrage. When students were reluctant and parents “balked,” (as well they should), especially Christian parents, Arnold defended her homophobia program by arguing,

that the project supported “higher-order thinking skills” because students were asked to perform such tasks as assembling and presenting portfolios of their research into homosexual culture and media.

I don’t know if this lady just got out of college or what, but I think that that her homosexual promo program is not the only way, or even an acceptable or necessary way, to teach “higher-order thinking skills” to students. Arnold has since attracted outside interest in her “homophobia” program, and she has thus made her resources and lesson plans available for other public school teachers to use so they can indoctrinate their own students with hyped homophobia propaganda. She also includes with her lesson plans,  shortened versions of her “Hidden Homophobia Unit,” which you can read here.

Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute (IFI) said she was “speechless” when she learned of the curriculum.

Matt Barber  says the program is really intended to indoctrinate children into thinking that homosexual behavior is okay. “The term ‘homophobia’ is a made-up term, made up by homosexual activists, that has no scientific value, no clinical value whatsoever,” he contends. “It’s merely a propaganda term.”

“Wisconsin public schools are permitting radical ideologues to use public money to promote their subversive, unproven moral conclusions and political goals about homosexuality,” said Higgins in an IFI article.  “These propagandists, who should be teaching history or literature or writing, are instead pursuing their illegitimate goals of transforming the views of other people’s children on the contentious issue of homosexuality.”

“Arnold, like countless other English teachers, bases her text selections on whether the ideas conform to and advance her socio-political goals and her particular moral convictions,” said Higgins.  “And she’s doing this with public money.”

Wow… with all of the recent financial shortages in public schools, I am quite sure that schools can find better and more productive ways to spend the little moeny they do have. Sarah Arnold likely isn’t the only public school teacher taking leeway with her lesson plans to indoctrinate your children with their personal ideologies. Have you discussed curriculum with your child’s teachers? Do you know what your children are reading, watching and being exposed to by these radical liberals?

Does ‘No Name-Calling’ campaign reject believers?//

‘Christians are not the oppressors, nor the creators of division in classes’

Wow. . .the more research I do, the scarier the public school system seems to get. Gold stars for all parents who home school their kids, or who can afford a Christian private school and make spending money on tuition a priority. In conjunction with the tolerance and acceptance of homosexuality in schools comes the attack on Christianity and all conservative values, and thus the students who fall into those categories. The GLBT community always tries to blame their problems on us, the conservative Christians. Well, sorry gang, give it up, it’s not going to fly. Actions have consequences and you’re not going to make the rest of society responsible for your perverted, irresponsible, and self-inflicted life anguish. That’s all on you.

An upcoming “No Name-Calling” campaign for public schools, sponsored by none other then a homosexual activist organization, is prompting concerns from a Christian group, which contends the effort promotes hate, not tolerance.

“Is respect for Christians part of these ‘no-naming-calling’ lessons?” asked Linda Harvey, head of Mission America. “Or does this effort in reality create more division by labeling and stereotyping objections to homosexuality?”

You won’t be surprised what other organizations are sponsoring this program: Anti-Defamation League, Educators for Social Responsibility, the National Education Association and the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. With this ‘no-name-calling’ campaign comes the attempt of GLBT groups to promote their agenda, seek preferential treatment and disrespect Christians. Just like I said in my post yesterday about tolerance training, shouldn’t no-name-calling be a blanket thing, referring to any type of name-calling  not being tolerated on any front, rather then a sneaky way to promote of the homosexual lifestyle?

According to the NoNameCallingWeek.com website, the inspiration for the idea comes from the a book called “The Misfits,” by James Howe about 5 junior high girls, all different, are taunted, one who’s taunted based on her sexual orientation/gender expression.

Motivated by the inequities they see around them, the ‘Gang of Five’ (as they are known) creates a new political party during student council elections and run on a platform aimed at wiping out name-calling of all kinds.

The website said the No Name-Calling Week Coalition, created by Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, or GLSEN, consists of more than 40 national partner organizations. The coalition organized the first No Name-Calling Week in schools across the nation during the week of March 1-5, 2004. This year, No Name-Calling Week will take place next week.

The website claims it wants to focus national attention on the problem of name-calling in school, and that’s nice and all, but don’t be fooled–what they are really trying to bring attention to is how  much they think GLBT people are discriminated against, and how everyone should think being gay or whatever is so great and wonderful. Ick. . .

Mission America’s Harvey, however, insists it’s not hate that is behind opposition to homosexuality.

“There is in fact, grave concern for these kids, lots of prayers, etc.,” she wrote.

The only hate around, Harvey said, is homosexuality itself.

“It hates the natural human body and spirit, and opposes truth at every level. It fights gender integrity as marvelously designed by God. It ‘uglifies’ a person, preventing the full blossom of natural beauty as a young male or female. It is a dead-end affection, fruitless, never creating new life,” she said.

You got that GLBT folks??? It’s not complicated. Daryl Presgraves, the “No Name-Calling” campaign spokesman, said that they sold 4,000 promotion kits to schools all across the U.S., which includes a 27-minute video, a guide with lesson plans, a copy of a book, two posters and 60 stickers.  I’m sure the liberal school administrators think that this program is a bargain at $129 bucks. When asked, Presgraves

declined to confirm whether “homophobia” would be condemned also. He said “any type” of hurtful word should be avoided.

Typical. . .you can’t expect the truth or the straight story out of these people, which I find cowardly.  If  you can’t be honest, then what do you have? This guy is trying to promote a program but he didn’t want to give the real truth about it. Well, I’ll answer that for him. Of course the no name calling list includes homophobia. That is practically the whole point of this thing anyway; this groups wants to tell kids how crappy they are for thinking that homosexuality is wrong. I think that anyone should be able to teach the concept of not calling names without having to explain sexually explicit details of homosexuality to young children.  Its hard to teach children right from wrong with out including religion and the real reason they need to be kind, compassionate, caring. God expects us to be; and Christ is our ultimate example. That’s the reason. And yes, it does include compassion and sympathy for homosexuals and people who are different, but we do not have to think that behavior is ok, nor should we teach our children that it is.

“The whole point is when someone hears a hurtful word, they can say, ‘This hurts me,’ and have a discussion,” [Presgraves] told WND.

Harvey, however, said that simply misses the point.

“‘Gay’ student clubs only add fuel,” she said, “by dwelling on supposed discrimination while urging entry into the behavior. The enemy? Traditionalists – students, teachers, parents – who know how harmful homosexuality is.”

She said bullying students who are acting out homosexually cannot be excused.

“But the solution is not to endorse homosexuality. Instead, we need to get counseling for these troubled kids to help end their self-destructive behavior, at the same time schools should consistently punish all uncivil and unkind treatment by bullies.”

Harvey said such programs “assume that homosexuality as a behavior is something worthy of respect and defense, and that it’s harmless. It’s not. Let’s get it out of kids’ lives.”

That’s the kicker right there. Harvey hits the nail on the head with that statement. The programs do assume, in fact more realistically force students to think that homosexuality is ok and worthy of respect and defense. Homosexuality is not harmless!!!!! I am so disturbed by the lack of compassion exhibited by the GLBT community for the rest of America. Its as if they are wishing for these children, and even everyone else, to experience the kind of anxiety, turmoil, family chaos, sexual perversion and lack of self-esteem that they themselves have experienced being gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered. They don’t want these children to experience the sacredness of intimacy within a loving and committed marriage, a real marriage between one man and one woman. They are trying to rob these children of one of life’s essential joys.  None of these GLBT people can say life has been blissful and easy for them, or that they have been happy, they would be lying if they did. They are past the trying phase of agenda execution. so make no mistake they ARE promoting this life of sadness and suffering on America’s children. This is vile behavior at it’s finest!

[Harvey] said the sponsorship of GLSEN should alarm parents [and I hope it does].

“This is the extremist group that helps kids organize homosexual clubs, and has stated a goal to get homosexual student clubs in all schools, kindergarten through 12th grade. Grade school-ers declaring their homosexuality? This is child sexual abuse!” she said.

The solution isn’t that complicated, she contended.

“It’s simple. Schools have to choose, one or the other. Both messages cannot remain with integrity. Either schools need to wise up and remove homosexuality and cross-dressing from the school climate (meaning: remove the propaganda and get help for these kids), or the conservatives and Christians need to go. That’s what is desired – for Christians to leave or be suppressed,” Harvey said.

“Christians are not the oppressors, nor the creators of division in schools. This horrendous behavior is. And it will not end, even if Christians were to leave. Actually, all that’s restraining total barbarism is the few true Christians left,” she said.

Parents, call your child’s school, or district office tomorrow morning promptly, and find out if this program will be taught next week. Pull your child out of school and send them to Grandma’s to visit, or make other arrangements for them if you have to work. This is too important! They don’t need this filth ingrained in their brains and saturating their souls.

Public schools and ‘tolerance’ training// laws will focus on homosexuality

In response to a Massachusetts case involving a young girl who was allegedly harassed by a third-grade boy, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that people have the right to sue schools over sexual discrimination. Courts in Massachusetts had ruled that the parents could not sue the school, citing Title IX.

The founder of Liberty Counsel says a recent Supreme Court ruling will have far-reaching consequences.

However, the Supreme Court has ruled that Title IX does not prohibit lawsuits. Mat Staver, the founder of Liberty Counsel, fears the future treatment of homosexuality in schools.

“And I think what it ultimately will mean is — long-term and even in the short-term — are these policies that schools will pass as a reaction to this [will require] homosexual sensitivity training programs. [T]hey’ll call them ‘no bullying’ laws or ‘sensitivity’ or ‘tolerance’ laws, but actually what it will be are laws that will focus on homosexuality,” he contends. “And anybody who says anything that is negative against homosexuality or in support of traditional morality — which, by the way, discriminates against nontraditional immorality — is going to be subject to these particular laws.”

We don’t’ need special laws in public schools that teach homosexuality, disguised as tolerance and sensitivity. No-bullying lessons do not need to be homosexual-specific, for kids to “get” what behaviors aren’t appropriate. Parents need to keep informed about what their child’s school plans to teach regarding these things. There are many ways to teach kindness and tolerance and difference and sensitivity to children, with out the graphic exploitations that are usually involved in public school homosexuality lessons. Law suits are law suits and what’s right is right. Hopefully we will see parents just as willing to fight for traditional morality, and for tolerance and sensitivity to be taught in the home, not by liberal public schools.

The Great Sex-Ed Debate:// Whatever will the Fremont School Board do?

Public school sex education is a huge deal. I don’t think that most parents realize how huge of a deal it is. Maybe if they knew exactly what propaganda and agendas are being taught to their children, they might perk up and pay attention, but then again, maybe not.

Fremont School Board members met last night 01/14, to adopt a new sex education program, after learning last year that their current junior high program was not compliant with California state law.

There have been rumblings that some trustees might be considering removing sex education altogether from the junior high schools.

I say that if they don’t have a decent program, if they want to promote the gay lifestyle and same-sex attraction, then go ahead, loose the program all together. It would likely be in the best interest of the children anyway. I say, have an optional program, maybe several evening seminars over several weeks, where parents could attend with their children, or come alone to learn how to talk to their children about sex, while still being able to preserve their value system by teaching their children at home. Oh wait, the bureaucrats in charge of the public school system do not care about anyone’s value system. I guess it’s nice in theory.

School districts are not required to provide sex education. But those that do are mandated to offer a comprehensive curriculum, meaning that the use of condoms and birth control must be taught in addition to abstinence [and as we have all heard, more and more SSA is being taught and promoted in these public school sex-ed programs].

The school board has reviewed two possible new curricula that are up for possible adoption — one called “FLASH” and another called “Teen Talk”.

Teen Talk was developed by the Teen Pregnancy Coalition of San Mateo County and is used in many Peninsula schools.  7/8 F.L.A.S.H. was developed by the Seattle–King County Department of Public Health and is used throughout the country.

These programs start as early as 4th grade teaching children about HIV. I am stunned and appalled. My husband and I have a 5th grader, and I don’t think that children this young need to be taught about sex as explicitly as these programs teach it, and I certainly don’t think they have a need for HIV info either. Tell them about puberty and teach them from a scientific and medical standpoint about the changes that will occur in their bodies, but HIV. . .? I also find it very strange that in these programs, the STD and HIV lessons are at the bottom. After they have talked to the kids about “touching,” “sexual exploitation,” “gender identification” and “sexual health and hygiene” then they will tell them, well you could get a disease. This is beyond ridiculous. I am so shocked by these programs, that I might just do a little critique of them tomorrow.

This week, several people from the health and sex education advisory committee or the American Civil Liberties Union, which advocates for reproductive rights, said individuals who support an abstinence-only curriculum have been contacting school board members and asking them to do away with sex education.

As reported by the ACLU,

California law states that sex education in public schools must be science-based, free of bias, and include medically accurate, age-appropriate information about abstinence, condoms and contraception in grades 7-12.  California schools may not use “abstinence-only” curricula.

Of course not. That would be leaving too many rights to the parents, if abstinence-only were to be taught. Then they would be able to teach their children what they wanted them to know. Wake up parents! What your children are being taught about sex in school is very much an infringement on your parental rights.

A huge round of applause for these parents who are obviously involved in their children’s education and care about what they are being taught. For those parents on the other side of the fence, who think that their children need a “comprehensive sex ed program,” the ACLU has so graciously offered a form letter that you can sign your name to and email out to the board directly from their website. The ACLU does not need to be involved in advising a school board on their sex-ed program. Do people really believe that a 4th graders sex education falls under the civil rights category? I see it as a gross infringement on that child’s parent’s civil rights. Here’s what the letter says:

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a Fremont community member, I am writing to ask you to follow through on your commitment to the parents and students of FUSD by adopting a medically accurate, comprehensive sex education curriculum for middle school at your meeting on January 14th. The two comprehensive curricula proposed for adoption meet state requirements and have been evaluated and recommended by teachers and the district’s advisory committee.

Comprehensive sex education that includes age-appropriate, accurate information about condoms and contraception as well as abstinence is effective. Students who receive comprehensive sex education are 50% less likely to become pregnant as students who receive abstinence-only education and 60% less likely to become pregnant as those who receive no sex education at all.

At a time when one in four teenage girls has a sexually transmitted disease, according to the CDC, young people more than ever need accurate, responsible information about their sexual health.

I urge you to provide FUSD middle school students with the comprehensive sex education that they deserve and the law requires.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
[Your Address]
[City, State ZIP]

Trustee Ivy Wu, who has been bombarded with emails, advises her children to obstain from premarital sex, however,

“I know that as a board member, I cannot impose my own personal beliefs on other people. … I also understand that there are kids who are already sexually active. For these kids, … they need to know the right way to protect themselves.”

Why not? The school district does. They impose their beliefs on other people’s children all the time. Too bad Trustee Wu didn’t push a little harder for them to do away with sex ed all together. These kids don’t need Fremont school district to teach them about sex. They already know, and if they already know, then they are likely getting their sex-ed from MTV, or hopefully, and more appropriately, their parents, which would trump anything Fremont would say. Those kids watch more MTV (or sex-TV as it should be called) than spend time in any public school sex-ed class. MTV promotes safe sex, so there, problem solved, right?

sex-ed-1No school board member contacted said they wanted to do away with sex-ed completely, but they do have some concerns about the two curricula being considered.
