America's Culture War: In the News
Homosexuality in the Classroom
A recent chance conversation with a homosexual activist revealed a wicked and terrifying undercurrent below the surface of our society. He commented that many homosexuals were no longer battling for same-sex marriage in the courtrooms or at the polls, because they know it will be a “non-issue” in ten years. When I asked what he meant, he informed me that rather than fighting to have laws changed, activists have changed tactics, and are now focusing the battle in the public school classroom. He noted that if they could teach tolerance and acceptance in the schoolroom, then it would be a piece of cake to have the laws overturned in a decade or so, once those students were of voting age.
This gentleman’s words reminded me of the quote that is attributed to Adolf Hitler: “Let me control the textbooks, and I will control the state.” During a speech he delivered on November 6, 1939, Hitler stated: “When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already.... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’” Chilling words—given the recent change in tactics by militant homosexuals who are teaching our children to accept everything and everyone, and that the only real sin is the sin of intolerance.
Consider also that within the past few years the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) has been formed in an effort to normalize homosexuality in public classrooms. Kindergarten students are now being taught about “human differences” while activists establish youth homosexuality clubs on campuses so that kids can be “initiated” into alternative lifestyles. With each passing day our children are being methodically trained to reject the moral beliefs of their parents and God.
