Indoctrination of Children? Here’s Some Evidence

Indoctrination of Children? Here’s Some Evidence

Diane Robertson

In 2011, Daniel Villarrea, a writer for The Queerity, a top online LGBT magazine wrote an article entitled, Can We Please Just Start Admitting That We Do Actually Want To Indoctrinate Kids?. (Just a warning that the language is very lewd and offensive in this link.) In it he says, “Why would we push anti-bullying programs or social studies classes that teach kids about the historical contributions of famous queers unless we wanted to deliberately educate children to accept queer sexuality as normal?”

And so it continues. In Utah, parent Tina Weber with help from the ACLU is suing the Davis County school district alleging that her children’s First Amendment rights were violated by a school committee’s decision to require parent permission to check out a book about lesbian mothers, In Our Mothers’ House, by Patricia Polacco, from elementary school libraries. Weber states, “As a parent, I believe that it’s my role to help them understand certain issues and explain to them our particular values and stances on things. I don’t believe it’s for anybody else to tell me how to raise my family. I would just hope to see the book get back on the shelf so all children have access to it.” Of course, she doesn’t want anyone to tell her how to raise her children, but she feels strongly enough about telling other parents how to raise their children she is filing a lawsuit against a school district. The school district acted in the best interest of the parents. If parents want their children reading about a family of “two mothers” then all they have to do is send a note to school with their child. If parents do not want their children reading about that, they do not need to worry. This decision of the school district perfectly fits the rights of the parents.

In Austin Texas, second-graders at Lee Elementary School were taken to a play called, And Then Came Tango, written by a University of Texas graduate student, Emily Freeman. The play was based on a real life story about the two male penguins in a New York City zoo that were given a fertilized egg and together raised the hatchling. The zoo officials named the hatchling, Tango. The Austin school district cancelled ten other scheduled performances stating age appropriateness,  “The subject matter communicated in the play is a topic that the [Austin Independent School District] believes should be examined by parents/guardians who will discuss with their elementary school age children at a time deemed appropriate by the parents/guardians.”

If anyone has questions about whether or not this is a play about nature or a play to indoctrinate children about gay marriage, just ask Freeman. She said, “Family is an entire colony of penguins, a young girl and her single mom, a zookeeper and the animals he tends, and two male penguins and their adopted egg. As these family structures are threatened in the play, we learn the power of voicing your opinions and standing up for your beliefs, no matter how old you are.”

In 2005, gay couple, Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson, made this penguin story into a picture book, and Tango Makes Three.  If anyone questions whether this book was written to promote gay marriage to children, well, again, just ask the authors. They said, “Many feel it’s inappropriate to talk about homosexuality because they think they’re talking about sex. This book is specifically not about sex. A 4-year-old doesn’t have the same associations between homosexuality and sex. They take things very literally. You can just tell them sometimes a man falls in love with another man and they start a family.”

Nathan Cherry, pro-family blogger for Engage Family Blog says:

Sex is a serious subject, not to be taken lightly; as the inherent responsibilities and consequences demand mature treatment. Sexuality is an even broader, far more serious subject. One would think sexuality would be reserved for, perhaps high-school students; and even then treated with delicacy and maturity. The idea of implementing explicit sexuality into the classroom before high school seems reckless at best.  But the idea of introducing homosexual indoctrination intended to make classes “gay friendly” for preschoolers is moral negligence at its worst.

In Britain, pre-school parents were asked about their sex lives in a survey because The Platform Charity is providing workshops and performances for under-fives groups. The aim of the Platform charity’s questionnaire, was to help “monitor the degree to which our programmes are gay-friendly”. And that is for children under 5!

And finally, to top off all of the recent homosexual indoctrination of school children, middle school students in Gorham, Maine were told about homosexual foreplay and homosexual safe sex at a diversity assembly. The day ended with Principal, Robert Riley bumbling out an apology to parents, “There is no excuse for what happened… It happened, and it happened quickly in response to an honest student question. The results of which we are all very aware. We will be more vigilant in the future to make sure this does not happen again, but the idea of Diversity Day program is still very important to us as a Middle School.”

Parents need to be aware that the homosexual lobby intends to indoctrinate their children—yes, indoctrinate. The homosexual lobby is aggressively trying to convince children that homosexual behavior should be accepted and embraced.   They clearly want homosexuality to be introduced before these children are old enough to understand the nature of human intimacy. They have no qualms about inviting children to experiment with sex and with homosexual sex in particular. This is not about education or being nice, inclusive, and tolerant.

Parents need to know and understand what is being taught in schools, particularly be wary of assemblies, programs, and courses with labels like “anti-bully” or “diversity”. This war is real. Our values, our religion, and the future of our children are being fought over every day.

    I think you’ll find that the article from ‘the Queerity’ doesn’t advocate making children gay at all. It simply wishes that children could be taught more about homosexuality, to teach them that it isn’t wrong, and shouldn’t be such a serious thing as it is. Because it isn’t. An underlying theme of your post is that children learning about homosexuality from an early age is wrong, when you have no evidence at all to say that it is. You say that they are teaching children about it ‘before these children are old enough to understand the nature of human intimacy’, but having experienced such teaching first-hand, I can tell you that in the majority of places this is not the case at all. It is in fact more centred around being tolerant of homosexuals, instead of abusing them and causing them to feel such a level of stress that they turn to drugs, or even suicide in a worst case scenario. The implications of what you are advocating is far worse than the side effect of teaching children about homosexuals, which is an increase in the amount of homosexuals. To me, this is not a bad thing in the slightest.
    If it seems like I am not a fan of your work, then you would be correct. I think that a great deal of the posts on this site fail to see both sides of the argument in such a way that your judgement can’t be credible at all. You do not take into account the viewpoints of anything other than those that support your personal view. This is called weak sense thinking. I feel sorry that you are not able to make a better judgement on issues. Perhaps it is you that has been indoctrinated into these viewpoints from an early age, and can’t see past them now that you are in later life.

    Parents need to help their children understand that being gay is not a moral nor normal. Any two people who cannot give their children a father AND a mother are depriving them of the social, moral, physical and spiritual support that they need. Being taught at home about what homosexuality is and how it affects our lives is very important. Our children should be taught to love all people, but not all that they do or stand for.
