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?
