Indoctrinating Our Children

I just received a newsletter with excerpts from a recent NEA (National Education Association) pamphlet (Source) that was sent to all 16,000 public school superintendents in the United States. It is allegedly “a renewed effort to protect the well-being of all students, including those who are at higher risk because of their sexual orientation.”

No doubt certain sexual orientations put people at risk. But health and longevity are not the risks these bleeding-hearts care about.

Just the Facts About Sexual Orientation and Youth: A Primer for Principals, Educators and School Personnel serves as a guide for public school employees “who confront sensitive issues involving gay, lesbian and bisexual students,” the coalition of 13 national associations said in a news release announcing the distribution of the booklet, Sexual Orientation and Youth.

Ah, those caring people; they don’t approve of harassment-- against gays. Against Christians is encouraged, however, as we can see on any given day where Christian students are forbidden to have a voice in school. Let’s read a little more...

“The opportunity for students to learn is diminished when they do not feel safe or supported at school,” the coalition stated. “In addition to assault and harassment, gay, lesbian and bisexual students experience high rates of emotional distress, suicide attempts and substance abuse.

”These factors hinder their emotional and social development, as well as their ability to succeed in school,“ the organization added. ”It is our responsibility to provide accurate and factual information.“

Now let’s test the sincerity of these people, and substitute ”Christians“ in those sentences. Do they also care that Christian students, especially young-earth creationists (YECs), ”do not feel safe or supported at school“? Granted Christians don’t have the same problem with suicide attempts and substance abuse, which by the way, are not being experienced by gays because of harassment, but because of their lifestyle. But are we to believe these people really care about Christian students’ ”emotional and social development“? Do they take it also as their responsibility ”to provide accurate and factual information“ about Christianity?

No, they don’t. This is not about caring for students, it’s about pushing the gay agenda and ramming it down our throats. It’s about propaganda and indoctrination, about pushing Christian ethics out the door, about silencing and harassing Christian students in favor of this disgusting form of genocide.

But I have to express my misgivings also about some Christian schools. Even if you have the cash to send your kids to a private Christian school, you’ll typically find an equally repressive environment for YECs, for Bible believers, for egalitarians, or for whatever else isn’t popular in Christendumb today. Given the spiritual apostasy of most of it, I don’t think it will be long until even they are accepting homosexuality and teaching kids to be ”tolerant“ of it.

What a terrible world our kids are inheriting! And ”the church" is no place to pin our hopes. The Bible tells us things will be very bad when Jesus returns; there is nothing about us setting up an earthly kingdom first, as the Dominionists believe (and promote forcefully). We must pray for protection until he does return.
