Another gem running public education


From the American Family Association:

Kevin Jennings is an open homosexual who is now serving the Department of Education as President Obama's "Safe and Drug Free Schools" czar.


Jennings is the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), which pushes so-called "anti-bullying" policies which even GLSEN admits are really about promoting "affirmation" of homosexual behavior in the school system.



Jennings is intolerant of the "religious right," 90% of whom enroll their children in public schools, and said in a 2000 speech "I'm trying not to say '[F---] 'em'...I don't care what they think. Drop dead!"



He wants homosexual indoctrination of students at all levels, having written the forward to a book entitled Queering Elementary Education, and saying in 2004, "Ex-gay messages have no place in our nation's public schools...There is no ‘other side' when you're talking about lesbian, gay and bisexual students."


By his own admission he failed his legal duty to report what he believed to be a case of statutory rape when a young student approached him for counsel after the boy had been preyed on by an older adult in a local bus station bathroom. Jennings' main piece of advice: "I hope you know how to use a condom."



He writes in his 2006 memoir without any remorse of frequently getting "drunk and stoned" when he was a teenager.



I checked the website of the US Department of Indoctrination, I mean, Education, and sure enough, Kevin Jennings is listed at the top of their "Key Staff" list.

My husband recently preached a sermon entitled "The Children Against the Parents", in which he addresses some more of the negatives of public education.

  2. YIKES!
    So thankful and blessed to be able to keep my children from this!! Will they hear about it, know about it, learn about it some day? Yes, I am quite sure they will...but it wont be when they are 7 and their BEST FRIEND is also a girl, and they really like hanging out with her and playing together, so therefore they are told that they are lesbiens, and to embrace it!
    They may hear about this all someday but they will have been TAUGHT through GODS WORD the Truth. Will we, can we, protect them for their ENTIRE lives from everything? NO~ but we SHOULD protect their innocence for as long as we can!
    Thank you Lord for being able to homeschool :)

  3. 90% of the religious right enrolls their children in public schools? Really? I'd be interested to see official statistics on this. Where I live, home school is huge, and Christian school is popular, too. I thought that Christians were making a mass exodus from the public schools over the past 20 years. And if they're not, maybe it's time they should. I know many would disagree with me here, claiming that they are going to send their innocent immature children into the public schools to be light and salt, but I don't believe that parents forcing their children into the wolves' den is the same thing as being called as a missionary to witness somewhere.

  4. I was thinking about possibly homeschooling. I heard your husband's message on the subject. We have a school at our church. Of course, we have time to make that decision.

  5. If you don't want your children to learn that being gay is ok then homeschool them or enroll them in a Christian school. I don't understand how parents can complain about the values being taught in public school when they are the ones who send them there. I'm not talking about you, you can complain all you want, because you homeschool your children. A gay person would not want their children to learn that gays are evil and going to burn in hell. Yet, they don't complain when Christian schools and homeschoolers teach their children that. I love much of what you have to say on your blog about natural child birth and things like that but I just don't understand your position on gays. You believe that it's a sin to be gay and that gay people are horrible. You have every right to believe that! You can hate them all you want, I just don't understand how this man personally effects your life. How does this effect you or your children? Why are you so upset about it? If parents want their children to learn to be accepting of gays then why do you care? Why do you want to stop that from happening? If Christian parents such as yourself don't want their children exposed to that then don't expose them! I'm genuinely confused. I don't want this post to come off as rude or me trying to argue with you because I respect Christians like you who actually practice what the bible says instead of just picking and choosing as many seem to do. I also understand that this is your blog and you're allowed to express whatever opinions you want on it (even if I don't agree), I just was hoping for some clarification. Sorry that was so much to read :)

  8. I think that it is good to know about these people and their agendas so that those of us who have or will have kids in public school can be aware, and counteract the teaching accordingly.

    I went to public school in primary school, and even though I sometimes learned different stuff at school, it was always the stuff that I learned at home and church that I believed for the most part, because my parents were active about teaching us what they believed to be right and wrong.

    My children will start school when they are four, one might start earlier because he needs special education and they start that at three. I will introduce them to the very basics of sexuality, although I doubt the special needs child will really understand. I will do this so that my child will be informed about these things from me first, so that when he gets misinformed by his friends or teachers, he's already had his first exposure to these things to be correct teachings about them.

    Honestly I also don't want to cocoon my kids from the world. I want them to know that we believe homosexuality is wrong, but that they are to treat homosexuals with the same respect they treat everybody else. I want them to have interactions with these people like they would with anybody else.

  9. I'm trying to grasp why you would want to put a 2.5 x 3.75 picture of him on your blog!

  10. Dear Zsuszanna.

    Hello from Australia. There is no need to post this comment. Last year I came upon this story and it really says a lot. PLease take the time to read it. It is a short article in a reputable newspaper. No-one who loves children should ever support gay adoptions. I really recoil in horror when I see shows like Modern Family, a deplorable show, where two of the main characters are a gay couple who have adopted children. This normalises the situation when it is anything but normal. Take a look at these perverts. They were very publicly active near where I lived pushing for gay rights and adoptions! I'm not that internet savvy but here is a link. Hope you find it as interesting/telling as I did.

    Thanks for standing up for the truth.
