We now know that Omar Mateen, the mass murderer who shot up that gay night club in Orlando, had experimented with homosexuality, visited gay dating sites and was a regular at Pulse.
I would not pretend to know what was going on inside the mind of a man who would do such a thing. However, we do know that his life was in conflict, born into a strict Muslim family and educated in our public schools which are now training grounds for this kind of sexual activity.
If you are not aware of this fact, than you simply don’t know what is going on in your local school.
For years, pro-homosexual organizations and the teachers’ union (National Education Assoication, NEA) have pressured our public schools to integrate anything-goes sex education into the curricula. The surprising thing is that it faced very little resistance.
By the early 1980’s, the book Changing Bodies; Changing Lives, was being utilized in health classes. It was classified as “supplemental material,” in order to circumvent nosy parents.
It encouraged students to begin experimenting with all manner of sexual activity: “Most people are neither ‘all straight’ or ‘all gay.’ It helps to picture a line with ‘gay’ on one side and ‘straight’ on the other. There are people all long the line…Some people believe that an openness to loving, sexual relationships with both sexes (called bisexuality) is our true nature.”
There was no large national outcry from parents over this. Therefore, the envelope was pushed further and further and now homosexuality is being presented as early as kindergarten as a normal, immutable trait that should be validated.
It is little wonder that so many young people, like Mateen, now struggle with issues of gender identity. It is also little wonder that the acceptance of gay marriage is highest among the young.
It wasn’t long before the Department of Education, which was created by President Jimmy Carter as a payoff to the NEA, put a toe in the water of the fight to normalize the gay lifestyle under the guise of promoting health and safety. Now, the DOEd, is all in.
It must not appear that gay activists are alone in their struggle to undermine American’s moral underpinnings, thus the term LGBT which stand for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transexual. What’s a bisexual? Someone who is obviously sexually promiscuous. What’s a transexual? There is no clear-cut definition. That is just one reason why the DOEd’s recent letter to our public schools advising them that they must allow transexual students to use the restroom or locker room of their choice is so problematic.
How long must we allow these federal anything-goes-as-long-as-it-goes-with-a-condom sex advocates to control our schools? Isn’t it time we said, “Enough”? Isn’t it time we insist that those seeking our vote for federal offices, including the highest office in our land, pledge to pull the DOEd out by its unconstitutional roots?
Our founding fathers wisely left the education of our children in the hands of state and local governments, where it could be controlled by the parents. The DOEd uses our tax dollars to turn that upside down.
Today, more and more parents are fleeing to private schools or choosing to homeschool. While this works for some, it is simply a Band-Aid for the moral decline that is undermining our nation. Many, particularly those stuck on the lower rungs of the economic ladder, will never see this as an option.
We are commanded to love and care for our neighbors. Therefore, we simply cannot neglect our neighbors whose children are stuck in the public schools.
Don’t wait for the next president or Congress to act. Kick the fed out of your local schools yourself. There is a simple way to take control. It’s through the ballot box and it’s not as difficult as it seems.
It’s not an accident that most school board elections generally are held in off-years, when there are no national offices at stake that capture our attention and drive us to the polls. These are low turnout elections, but the NEA spends millions to get their hand-picked candidates elected. Generally, only those with a vested interest in using the DOEd’s education dollars turn out to vote. Imagine what could happen if every church in America had a get-out-the-vote campaign for these elections!
Staggers the imagination!
Remember, the school board election — not the presidential election — is the most important election we have when it comes to preserving America’s future, because free nations simply cannot endure without strong more underpinnings.
