13 U.S. Senators Tell LGBT Youth, “It Gets Better!”

Good morning, Jim. On June 29th the ACLU announced that 13 U.S. senators made a video message of hope and encouragement for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people as part of the “It Gets Better Project.” The ACLU, also, claims the 13 senators and all members of Congress will try to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, that defines marriage as between a man and a woman, and will work to pass the Student Non-Discrimination Act in public K – 12 schools across the country.
LGBT activists focus on making public schools “a gay place to be,” through safe schools practices, disguised as anti-bullying policies. In a 1995 speech, Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings explained how he used “safety” to deceive the Massachusetts legislature into adopting the pro-homosexual agenda for schools there. He said, “Titling our report ‘Making Schools Safe for Gay and Lesbian Youth,’ … automatically threw our opponents onto the defensive and stole their best line of attack … short-circuited their arguments and left them back-pedaling from day one.”
In-school strategies by homosexual activists build one upon the other. They teach very young children they can claim “victim” status and exploit the “safety” issue if they will identify as LGBT. The strategy proceeds to discussions of alternate “families” and ways to celebrate “diversity.” Follow-up includes under-the-radar stealth campaigns for inserting the term “sexual orientation” into education policies, to be built upon by future pro-homosexual projects. Students are taught to demonstrate pride in their LGBT orientation by “coming out of the closet” to their parents and friends.
Pet strategies for mainstreaming alternate lifestyles to children are (a) establishing gay/straight alliance clubs in schools and (b) requiring pro-homosexual curricula (that may be authored by homosexuals) to be taught and promoted by openly homosexual teachers, and counselors, with (c) additional affirmation from special speakers that role-model variant lifestyles. When parents or members of the local community object to the course content (if they find out about it), they are charged with hate, bigotry and prejudice, with troubling results – the curriculum remains the same and there’s no opting-out. Students remain sitting ducks, captive audiences in an unacceptable social experiment to lure vulnerable children into deviant, unnatural, dangerous, unhealthy behavior … over all objections, even the objections of parents whose students are subjected to the course.
