It's that time of the year when a small number of twisted teachers are planning to corrupt the children in their care with homosexual propaganda.
February has been renamed Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender History Month and that means:
For Secondary Schools:
* Sir Ian McKellen coming in to say 'gays are different but we are all different'
* Staging the pastiche play Romeo and Julian
* Screenings of the pro-gay video FIT
* Discussions in PHSE of how homosexuals are 'discriminated against' (as if they are).
* Getting pupils to write pro-gay essays perhaps with the support of outside agencies.
For Primary Schools:
* Using the 'relationship' bit of 'sex and relationships' education to talk about how nice gay relationships are,
* Getting the children to read books like King and king in which a prince 'marries' another prince or And Tango Makes Three in which two male penguins raise a little penguin. (The last is based on a true story of what happened in a zoo; the fact that one of the male penguins later went and got hitched up to a girl penguin is passed over.)
* Using cartoons of sex acts.
* Showing pictures of two pairs of feet in a bed and telling the tots they could belong to a man and a woman or two men.
* Using Elton John's music to talk about being gay.
* Using the issue of bullying to promote homosexuality. This last one is really bad, because talking up name-calling like 'gay' and 'lezzie' actually gives bullies a weapon they might not have thought of, and can result in a studious boy or tom-boyish girl being labelled as homosexual. And that can become a self-fullling prophecy.
There is one bright spot: Right in the middle of February is Valentine's Day, which is now being designated a Day of Purity.
PRAY: For your children and those in your church or fellowship to be protected from this propaganda. Pray for Christian teachers to stand up to the pro-gay pressure and object to 'gay lessons'.
ACTION: Parents: Ask the school head if there are any special lessons or events happening in your child's school during February. Teachers can do the same. Parents, teachers and young people especially of secondary school age can celebrate the Day of Purity instead and promote it in school.
THE PRESS: If you find out that something untoward is happening in a school, contact Christian Voice and also contact the local press. They will respect your anonymity if you ask although it is a better witness to go public. The kind of school we are talking about often try to inflict gay lessons and assemblies by stealth. The two things they fear are Parents and the Press. Using this method, parents in Waltham Forest succeeded in the face of massive intimidation in having LGBT History Month quietly dropped in the Borough. But it won't make you popular with the school head.
Organisations and people promoting 'LGBT History Month' include Stonewall, (and that means Her Majesty's Government) Schools Out (scary Schools-Out website is here), Gareth Thomas, The British Museum and the Lesbian and Gay Foundation, who had this to say:
'LGBT History Month is almost upon us and it is an opportunity to learn more about the histories of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and celebrate their lives.
'Until recently, the silencing of LGBT people was often reinforced by legislation and in some countries this is still the case. The history of those who have gone before us shows us what can be achieved when we say Enough is Enough to Homophobia and Transphobia.
'We must use every opportunity to support LGBT people, particularly in our families and in schools. Over the next few months The LGF will be increasing our focus on supporting families and providing more resources to schools.
'In February we will launch the Enough is Enough! Safer Schools Packs, because two thirds of lesbian, gay and bisexual pupils report homophobic bullying in English secondary schools.
'We want to get as many Packs into UK schools in time for May 17th, International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia and the campaign’s one year anniversary, because every child has the right to learn in a safe environment.'
Paul Martin, Lesbian & Gay Foundation Chief Executive
