A Woman's Perspective On The Times We Live In

When Political Correctness Becomes Indoctrination

   
     You may, or may not be aware, but one week from today, April 15th, the welfare of our children will be under assault.  No, I'm not talking about Tax Day.  I'm talking about "The Day of Silence" that is being promoted by the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN).
     The professed purpose of the GLSEN Day of Silence is that it is "a student-led national event that brings attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools. Students from middle school to college take a vow of silence in an effort to encourage schools and classmates to address the problem of anti-LGBT behavior by illustrating the silencing effect of bullying and harassment on LGBT students and those perceived to be LGBT."
     First of all, I'm not sure that I believe this protest is "student-led" or even "student generated".  As with all social movements, you can usually find an instigator behind the scenes that is pulling the strings and pushing an agenda. In this case, as reported by Linda Harvey on Barbwire.com, The Day of Silence is meant to be "a day when students remain silent in sympathy for those who are born homosexual or born in the wrong sex body, who are victimized (so the narrative goes) by any message encouraging actual male/female biology, dating and marriage -- all scorned as hateful and homophobic."
     So, our children are being subjected to guilt and intimidation under the guise of an anti-bullying campaign, when in reality, it looks an awful lot like promotion of the homosexual and transgender lifestyle in our public schools.  Listen to the testimony of another writer at Barbwire, Linda Wall:  "It was several years after I was set free from homosexuality that I discovered the pushers of sexual perversion had made it into the public schools under the disguise of “diversity”. Imagine how horrified I was in 2000 to see that AT&T had sent pro-homosexual lesson plans to every middle school of America! These lesson plans presented the politically correct view of homosexuality."
     And as the title of my post indicates, this political correctness has crossed the line into indoctrination.  Ms. Harvey goes so far as to write, "The 'anti-bullying' scam is the cover used in many school districts to expose children to obscene, bigoted and pornographic presentations. If we object, it is alleged that more students may attempt suicide."  Students and teachers in Iowa have reported workshops filled with profanity; details about oral/anal sex; how gender-confused girls can bind their breasts and sew fake testicles into their underwear as pretend boys; and even a recommendation for reacting to a pro-marriage bumper sticker: “Slash the tires.”
     This event (which may be happening at your child's or grandchildren's school) is just the latest in homosexual activism.  By pointing this out, I'm sure that I will be labeled homophobic and a hater, but that is simply not the truth.  I have gay friends whom I love, and whom I know are every bit a child of God as I am. Would I rather they were living within the will of God?  You bet!  But I do not hate them, nor do I condemn them.  That is not my purpose on this earth.  But when I see gay activists who ridicule the dignity, innocence and modesty of children, while deliberately trying to coerce immoral behavior, then I will decry such actions -- no matter who or what they are promoting.
     In her article, Harvey goes on to report that our middle school kids are being taught CSE, “comprehensive sex education,” and how to put both male and female condoms on plastic models in mixed sex classes (female condoms are most often used by lesbians). It’s humiliating for 11- to 14- year-olds, and just another of the Saul Alinsky tactics designed to shock and assault innocence.
     Furthermore, these CSE classes are distorting the truth.  They teach that abstinence and protected sex are the same thing.  A program called Making Proud Choices, teaches that "To protect yourself and your partner from sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV infection, you should: Keep a supply of condoms on hand. Get used to condoms, so they are natural and fun. …” (p.92).
     While this indoctrination seems to be happening quickly and without opposition, I do want you to know that the ACLU has issued a statement emphasizing the limits of political activism during instructional class time: "You DO have a right to participate in Day of Silence and other expressions of your opinion at a public school during non-instructional time: the breaks between classes, before and after the school day, lunchtime, and any other free times during your day ... You do NOT have a right to remain silent during class time if a teacher asks you to speak."
     So, parents who are awake and aware of the cultural marxism/political correctness agenda being rammed down the throats of our kids in the public school system are being encouraged to call their kids out of school on April 15th.  They are being encouraged to stop the hijacking of our kids' education, and to actively oppose GLSEN's socio-political goals and its controversial, unproven, and destructive theories on the nature and morality of homosexuality.  The public school classroom should not be an arena for politicization of any kind of movement; especially for the mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, and sexual exploitation of our children.
     But one more word of caution ... lest you think the ACLU is on the side of families of faith, and the traditional sexual roles in society, be on your guard.  There is a paper called Schools In Transition: A Guide for Supporting Transgender Students in K-12 Schools, which is a first-of-its-kind publication for school administrations, teachers, and parents about how to provide safe and supportive environments for all transgender students, kindergarten through twelfth grade.  It was written by staffers from the ACLU, National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR), Gender Spectrum, the National Education Association (NEA), and the Human Rights Campaign (HRC).
     With statement's like "A student’s age and maturity — or that of their peers —should never be a basis for denying a transgender student an opportunity to transition in a safe and supportive environment", it is not too hard to see that transitioning away from Biblical gender roles is not only supported, but subtly encouraged; and gender confusion is seen as viable in children as young as kindergarten!  What has this culture become?!?!
     This post has barely scratched the surface as far as the assault on our children and their education systems.  And sadly, I would surmise that very few parents are aware of the indoctrination of their children.  I can't help but feel that this is one more nail in the coffin of our nation.  We have legitimized child sacrifice through abortion, destroyed the Biblical model of family and creation; and are now subjecting our children to perversion and deviancy.  How much longer will our righteous and holy God restrain His wrath?

Matthew 18:6    "But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea."

  1. God bless you Belle! Personally, I was not aware of this Day of silence for the LGBT, and I'm thankful that most kids in 1-12 grades are out for spring break. I thank you for sharing it though. The greatest way for the enemy to attack us is through our children. Thanks to our POTUS, the devil and his demons have been working overtime in our schools. We have been researching for many months in great detail regarding the Qatar Foundation and the new Islamic teachings inside our school walls with our grandchildren, and I'll send you a private email on all the data soon, God willingly. But for now, I would like to address the part of your article regarding your gay friends. You said that they were every bit a child of God, as we are, yet the only difference is that they are not living in the will of God. Truthfully, that confuses me. For to become a child of God, one must stop sinning.... and yes, homosexuality is a sin! I am not saying that the children of God never sin, it's just if one is truly born of His Spirit, they recognize their sin and repents quickly.
    Furthermore, of course we don't hate them....we love them all the more! And if we are His children, we should know better than to condemn and judge them, or anyone else living in sin. We all did at one time... yet it is God's kindness that leads them to repentance. But how will they ever be saved if we condone their actions while telling them that they too are a child of God like us? It costs so much to be a child of God! God's ways are not easy for we must daily die to the sin that leads us downward, and until they let go of this sin, they can never become a child of God. Please do not think that I am attacking you or them, for I am just sharing my view about the same sin that I had chosen in my younger years until somebody told me the truth.
    Once again, Thanks for helping us to be aware of these latest attacks on our kids at school coming up next week. We definitely need more gate-keepers like you in His harvest field. To God be all glory!

    1. Sally, I think that we are on the same page, but perhaps there was an assumption about what I wrote that was not intended. I do not believe that I insinuated that the only difference between me and my gay friends was that they were not living in the will of God. My point was that their homosexuality is definitely NOT in the will of God, which to me, is translated as sin. I look at it this way ... can I say that I no longer sin, or am sin-free? I know that no one but Jesus is sinless, and I agree that homosexuality is a sin. But so are my thoughts of envy, or my gossip, or my hateful words in anger. And if, for one instant, I do not put God before my family, my job, or my money... I am living in sin. Am I willing to say that somehow my sin is more "forgivable"? No. And I know that Proverbs 6:16-19 says:
      "There are six things that the Lord hates,
      seven that are an abomination to him:
      17 haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
      and hands that shed innocent blood,
      18 a heart that devises wicked plans,
      feet that make haste to run to evil,
      19 a false witness who breathes out lies,
      and one who sows discord among brothers.
      There are lots of sins that the Father hates, and you are absolutely correct... He desires that we repent of each of them, and turn to Him for forgiveness, and then sin no more. IN NO WAY, am I condoning my homosexual friend's behavior -- and I don't believe I stated that I did in the blog post. It is my heartfelt desire that they seek the Lord, repent of their sinful behavior (as I wish ALL of God's children would do!) and become the people that He made them to be. Because I know that my God desires that He lose no man or woman. He wants us all Saved ... regardless of which sins we've committed. I am always surprised when my Christian friends are offended when I say that I can love my homosexual friends. Why can't I love them as I would a heterosexual friend who sins, and desire the same thing for them ... that they come to know Jesus as their Savior, recognize and repent of their sins, ask forgiveness, and enter into eternity with Him? Loving them does not mean condoning their sin -- anymore than Jesus, who loves each of us, condones our sin. I am simply trying to follow in His footsteps.

  2. God bless you Belle. Please understand this truth; "I applaud you for loving your gay friends!" If more Christians were like you, God's harvest would be over-flowing. You are so right when you say that loving them does not mean condoning their sin. Yet my point was that it sounded like you were condoning their actions when you said that they are a "Child of God" as much as "you" even though they are living in that life style. That was the only part that confused me! For I have told every gay friend that I have ever known just the opposite as God gave me the opportunity too...For He loves them and so do I, and they need to hear this truth. For if one is living in this life style, they are not a child of God (YET). And in truth, they really don't want to hear it, but God holds me accountable to say it in love. In my experience, they don't have much to do with me afterwards, and that's o.k. too...I just love them unconditionally, and then I move on. But there is some good news. My friend Rosie went home to be with the Lord three years ago after changing her mind of walking on that path for nearly sixty years. When she first heard that she was not a child of God until she left that path, she was very angry with me. But in time, God grew that seed that I had planted and watered in love. And I look so forward to spending eternity with her. I hope this now helps you to understand why I even mentioned the part of your writing that confused me. And I would sincerely love to hear your reply. Once again, the only part was that a homosexual is as much a child of God as us. Thanks and to God be ALL glory.

    1. I can see that my use of "child of God" is the only thing we disagree on. I simply used that terminology in the understanding that we are all created in His image, and as Creator, He is the Father of us all... whether we have accepted His Son as our Savior or not. Obviously, He wants us all to obey His commandments and come into His Light, whereby we are redeemed and become co-heirs with Christ. I can see that you use the terminology "child of God" in a stricter sense, and I certainly have no argument with your reasoning. Ultimately, we both view salvation the same, and neither makes excuses for sin. And I thank you for your comments and your willingness to discuss your opinion on this matter.

  3. Praise the Lord...Ye servants who know Him, for our Master has been so good to us! I am so thankful for your spiritual reply Belle, and I am more than willing to discuss the work we have been called to do; "Planting and watering His seed along the Way of the Righteous". My heart aches over how many churches have inadvertently bought into the tolerant, relative morality of our culture today regarding this subject. They mistakenly think that love means accepting the person, sin and all, with no "moral" judgements about their behavior. But God's agape LOVE requires attempting to correct them. I am so glad that we have come to agree, and I am always so thankful and count it pure JOY when I find another worker in His harvest field that will not compromise His Word of instructions, and one that will discuss their own spirit-filled knowledge so we can all learn and grow. Thanks Belle. And to God be all glory!
