Radical Homosexual Agenda
The term “Radical Homosexual Agenda” refers to a movement begun in 1990 to ‘normalize’ homosexuality and other deviant behavior within our culture. Leading this movement is a group calling themselves the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN). Their rallying cry is, “Whoever controls the schools controls the future.” The organization began as a local volunteer group of 70 gay and lesbian educators. At that time, there were two Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) in the nation. Today, there are more than 3,600 GSAs registered with GLSEN. They are a very large national organization supported by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
GLSEN targets children for recruitment into the homosexual lifestyle and promote cross-dressing/sex change operations through GLSEN chapters that sponsor hundreds of GSA clubs on junior high and high school campuses across the United States. GLSEN infiltrates schools by claiming homosexual and transgender students need to feel safe, confident and accepted, and by stating as fact that so-called homosexual/transgender teens have high rates of suicide and therefore need a support group. When this tactic fails, GLSEN threatens legal action against school districts that refuse to allow these recruitment clubs on campus.
For example, In January, 2004, the ACLU/GLSEN coalition scored a major legal victory over the Morgan Hill, California, school district, winning a settlement from the school district for failing to protect six homosexual students from harassment. As part of this settlement, the school district is now forced to impose pro-homosexual sensitivity training for all school officials. This has spread like a cancer throughout California as evidenced by the recent passage and implementation of SB 777.
The GSA guide instructs students that insisting on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) history in school instruction helps to create schools where students feel safer and more supported. Utilizing the slogan “Let's Set the Record Straight: History Isn't,” students are given several action steps to take in accomplishing their 'curriculum campaign' goal. These include monitoring classroom instruction to see if LGBTQ individuals are discussed or 'made invisible'; taking over class to present LGBTQ history lessons and contacting textbook companies to change curriculum.
Finally, we are seeing opposition to this blatant attack on morality and control of our children. Karen England, a spokeswoman for Capital Resource Institute, has publicized the GSA campaign and is a primary organizer behind the Save Our Kids plan to put the issue before voters and ask them to reject it. An increasing number of students are leaving public schools because of the planned agenda, and districts will lose money if that happens. A spokeswoman for a ministry called Considering Homeschooling said she has already seen an overwhelming increase in requests for information about homeschooling. An organization called Advocates for Faith and Freedom has filed a lawsuit challenging SB 777. Let us pray for the success of these groups. It is the only way we can combat this scourge.
A national organization called Americans For Truth (about Homosexuality, or AFTAH), is one of the few groups that unapologetically and aggressively confronts the homosexual/transsexual lobby. You can find out more about them at www.americansfortruth.org or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. They are looking for support from you!
