Last night I attended the Shenandoah County Budget meeting and heard at least a dozen teachers and supporters call for full funding of the school budget, so I spent some time on Central High School’s website. I was disturbed to find a gay-straight alliance (GSA) club listed. While GSA advertises itself as an anti-bullying program to create “safe” schools, the national movement is about training youth to advance the gay agenda. GSA’s website has photos of students wearing lanyards reading “queer youth” and carrying signs that say “I (heart) queers” and “young, queer, and proud.” Is this how we train kids not to call names?
GSA promotes special rights for those who identify as LGBT. GSA promotes same sex marriage, hate speech laws, etc. One article on the GSA website quotes a GSA promoter in California saying, “’"I do have the legal right, if I were a transgender girl, to use the girls' restroom,’ Solis said. ‘The school could not make me use the boys' restroom.’" He went on to say, “If a student wears an ‘I support same-sex marriage’ T-shirt to school, that is protected political speech and it's legal for them to wear it,’ he said.” Another article on teen suicide, essentially blamed it on conservatives, saying there’s less suicide in Democratic areas. It quoted a homosexual student – “Toomay said signs of community intolerance, including bumper stickers opposing same-sex marriage, also made him feel down, and he sought guidance from a school counselor after contemplating suicide.” So all those citizens in California who voted for Proposition 8 to uphold traditional marriage are intolerant and make gay kids “contemplate suicide.” Wow!
While GSA talks against “hate” it engenders hatred toward Christians and conservatives who oppose homosexual BEHAVIOR. Everyone deserves respect as a child of God, but to give special rights to some people based on their activity and requiring others to affirm it is itself a form of intolerance.
If we are really concerned about making children feel safe, let’s discourage them from same-sex behavior. According to the Center for Disease Control, more than 50% of new AIDS cases are from men having sex with men, with an alarming 21% in youth from age 13-29. Could the promotion in the schools have something to do with that alarming figure? Somehow, I doubt if the GSA club is warning their members that gay sex is deadly.
With regard to the school budget, If they allow this nonsense it makes me question their judgment on other things including the claim of a “bare-bones” budget.
