District gags 14-year-olds after 'gay' indoctrination

This goes to the heart of what I said in my previous post. Trust your children to the public school system at your (and your children's) peril. I am personally outraged at the despicable behavior of school officials. Please read the article and also Debbie's post at Right Truth on this. And Stop the ACLU. Arrrgh.

District gags 14-year-olds after 'gay' indoctrination 'Confidentiality' promise requires students 'not to tell their parents'

Deerfield, Ill., High School, where officials required students to attend a "gay" indoctrination seminar Officials at Deerfield High School in Deerfield, Ill., have ordered their 14-year-old freshman class into a "gay" indoctrination seminar, after having them sign a confidentiality agreement promising not to tell their parents.

"This is unbelievable," said Matt Barber, policy director for cultural issues for Concerned Women for America. "It's not enough that students at Deerfield High are being exposed to improper and offensive material relative to unhealthy and high-risk homosexual behavior, but they've essentially been told by teachers to lie to their parents about it."

In what CWA called a "shocking and brazen act of government abuse of parental rights," the school's officials required the 14-year-olds to attend a "Gay Straight Alliance Network" panel discussion led by "gay" and "lesbian" upperclassmen during a "freshman advisory" class which "secretively featured inappropriate discussions of a sexual nature in promotion of high-risk homosexual behaviors."

This whole sorry affair has been infinitely compounded by...
U.S. District Judge Mark L. Wolf. Of course, another judge of the Leftist Persuasion, argued:

Wolf essentially adopted the reasoning in a brief submitted by a number of homosexual-advocacy groups, who said "the rights of religious freedom and parental control over the upbringing of children … would undermine teaching and learning…"

David and Tonia Parker and Joseph and Robin Wirthlin, who have children of school age in Lexington, Mass., brought the lawsuit. They alleged district officials and staff at Estabrook Elementary School violated state law and civil rights by indoctrinating their children about a lifestyle they, as Christians, teach is immoral.

"Wolf's ruling is every parent's nightmare. It goes to extraordinary lengths to legitimize and reinforce the 'right' (and even the duty) of schools to normalize homosexual behavior to even the youngest of children," said a statement from the pro-family group Mass Resistance.

An appeal of that decision is pending.

The judge concluded that even allowing Christians to withdraw their children from classes or portions of classes where their religious beliefs were being violated wasn't a reasonable expectation.

"An exodus from class when issues of homosexuality or same-sex marriage are to be discussed could send the message that gays, lesbians, and the children of same-sex parents are inferior and, therefore, have a damaging effect on those students," he opined. (emphasis mine)

What is truly frightening is the degree of blindness on the part of school officials, government officials, and federal judges. Not only is it ok to teach your kids that it's just dandy to be a queer, but it's ok to to tell the students to lie to their parents about what they are doing. You can believe the NEA is 100% behind this indoctrination of our children. 100%. And the ACLU, of course... goes without saying.

Homeschool your children, or accept the awful consequences. The recently proposed HJR 29 would make it a "right" for children to have a public education. That is, they would be able to take away parent's rights to homeschool their children.

Thankfully, H.J.R. 29 languished in the House Judiciary Committee and died at the end of the 109th Congress without action. However, this proposed amendment, or similar legislation, could be reintroduced at any time.

Home School Legal Defense Association encourages families to be vigilant during the 2007 legislative season. HSLDA is carefully monitoring Congress’ actions to ensure that the God-given right of parents to decide what is best for their child’s education is not undermined by our nation's laws.
