The homosexual drive for acceptance and approval is increasingly focused on recruiting in the public schools. California recently passed a law mandating that K-12 students be taught to "appreciate various sexual orientations."
Christian members of the Westminster (California) school board are refusing to use this "diversity" curriculum and are being threatened with the loss of $40 million in state funding. Other states are also capitulating to the intense lobbying by sodomite activists.
Schools are being sued or threatened for any attempt to stop this drive to alert grammar school kids to the "possibility" that they might be "Gay." One school district in New York agreed to pay $30,000 dollars to a middle school student who was sent home for the day because she refused to change her T-shirt that declared "Barbie is a Lesbian."
Schools are facing lawsuits if they try to stop the establishment of a "Gay-Lesbian" club on campus.
The Los Angeles school district is instituting the state-mandated curriculum under the banner of safety. Homoactivists are screaming that "homophobia" in the schools is creating a hostile atmosphere toward students who are trying to decide if they are "Gay" or not. Then, they are demanding that even kindergarten and grade schools teach that some students are born homosexual and need a safe and affirming school environment to help them recognize it.
Often, the curriculum and classroom teaching is done without alerting the parents. Special assemblies are held where homosexuals can present the sodomite lifestyle in a positive, appealing light. Some have even presented detailed descriptions of the perverted techniques used in homosexual intercourse. And all of this to youngsters who are growing up in a highly confusing, sex-charged culture.
What then can the Bible believer do in a culture that is becoming increasingly hostile to the gospel and biblical truth? We must become active in our schools. If it is a public (government) school, get a look at all the materials in your child's curriculum. Talk to the teachers to find out where they are on this issue. Talk to the officials who administer your school and if they are being pressured, find ways to stand with them against this evil.
We need to make our elected officials feel our revulsion and outrage. One Christian legislator in New Mexico was trying to stand against this kind of legislation but only one Christian showed up to testify at a critical committee hearing. She wrote an open letter in The Baptist New Mexican, pleading for help from the pastors and Christian parents.
Polls have indicated that the generation that is being fed these lies are buying them. One study found that over two-thirds of high school students polled saw nothing wrong with the sodomite life style.
Jack Chick's newest Li'l Suzy tract, Birds and the Bees, hits this evil head on. It is written for the early grade school student who is being recruited by the homosexuals. It is tragic that their young innocence is being destroyed by the schools and culture. But Bible believers must wake up to the threat and strike back with prayer, voting, exposure, political pressure at local, state and federal level, and strong biblical teaching at home and church. We have allowed this evil to become so pervasive it will take a lot to stop it. It may even be too late but we must try.
