LGBT Youth Summit during “LGBT Pride Month”

Good morning, Jim. This summer the U.S. government publicly put the federal stamp-of-approval on alternate lifestyles. It was the first-ever Federal LGBT Youth Summit and was hosted by the federal Department of Education. It was so secret the media was barred from all workshops and all but a few general forums. The Summit was FOR “teens and 20-somethings” and the subject was “gender, which includes gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender individuals, LGBT for short.”
At 8:30 a.m. June 6th a government staff member introduced the kick-off speaker by saying, “Your federal government has finally come out of the closet in support of LGBT youth. It’s great to see so many young faces out there, all gay and proud.” Then, she told the participants that Health & Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius “gets us” and is “tireless” in her support of LGBT youth.
During her speech, Secretary Sebelius named the six federal departments assigned to the Obama administration’s government-wide LGBT taskforce. They are the federal departments of Health and Human Services, Education, Agriculture, Defense, Interior and Justice. At a working lunch the “teens and 20-somethings” were taught to network with homosexuals for employment in top corporate and nonprofit jobs.
On Tuesday, June 7th the early speaker was U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who reaffirmed support of Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) clubs in schools and repeated government commitment to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.
Packets distributed to conferees included pro-LGBT literature and provocative pictures from a pro-LGBT photograph exhibit that was displayed at the invitation of Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings. CNSNews was told workshops were customarily closed, because the presence of the media would have a silencing effect on participants. I thought you’d like to know what they’re doing with your hard-earned tax dollars and how America’s children are being trained in “diversity” and “tolerance.” For Georgia Insight I’m Sue Ella Deadwyler, your Capitol correspondent.
