After reading about a student assembly at Boulder High School in Colorado, I am
more happy than ever that my wife and I chose to home school our daughter. Dr.
Joel Becker, a professor of psychology from (surprise!) the University of
California at Los Angeles told kids 14 and up, "I am going to encourage you to
have sex and encourage you to use drugs appropriately." He went on to encourage
them to "explore their sexuality" by experimenting with homosexuality.
The Boulder school Board was confronted by Boulder High sophomore Daphne White
and her mother, Priscilla White, about the event (see LINK below). Mrs. White
told Board members it's inappropriate for such a message to be delivered by a
public school. She was reading excerpts of the presentation to the board when
Board President Helayne Jones told her to stop, because the language was
inappropriate. For heaven's sake! If the language was "inappropriate" for adult
School Board members, how in the world could it be considered appropriate for
"The panel discussion was a completely irresponsible and dangerous invitation
to Boulder High students to have sex and take drugs," her daughter, Daphne,
told the board. The conference which she was forced to attend was supposed to
have been about STD's (Sexually Transmitted Diseases). Daphne accused panel
members of presenting one-sided views and discrediting abstinence. "The
panelists irresponsibly advised Boulder High students to have sex and use
drugs. Teenage abstinence was dismissed as an unwise choice and indicative of
During the assembly a female student also asked the panelists, "Would you have
sex with someone you liked? But say he doesn't love you?" The unanimous
consensus of the four panel members was "Yes."
During the assembly, Dr. Becker said, "We all experiment. It's very natural for
young people to experiment with same sex relationships~There are psychiatrists
who will do sessions under the influence of ecstasy. If I had some maybe I'd do
it with someone." [EDITOR'S NOTE: Ecstasy is a dangerous psychedelic drug.]
These are Dr. Becker's exact words from a tape played on a Boulder radio
station: ""I'm going to encourage you to have sex, and I'm going to encourage
you to use drugs appropriately." Yet the planner of the assembly, Jim Parker,
claimed: "None of the panelists told the students they should or shouldn't use
drugs or have sex. Rather, the panelists told students to make decisions that
are appropriate for them and to know the consequences." Either the tape lied or
The incoming Boulder Valley Superintendent, Chris King, agreed no student
should have been forced to be at that panel discussion. The current
Superintendent, George Garcia, conceded that many of the comments by the
panelists were "crude" and "inappropriate." Yet the School Board plans to
continue with the same type of assemblies next year (see LINK below).
I want to assure you that the Boulder High School assembly was not an isolated
incident. Many other high school students nationwide have been forced to attend
school assemblies designed to recruit impressionable kids into the perverted
Newton North High School Principal Jen Price refused to allow parents to attend
assembly promoting homosexuality (see LINK below). Price is an open lesbian,
who with her "partner" has two young children. (Newton, Massachusetts must be
an extraordinarily liberal town, since the principals of both her high school
and the Newton South High School are homosexuals.)
With a homosexual principal, it should come as no surprise that the school has
a whole department to promote perversion. Under Administration the school's
website there are four listings: the principal, the two vice-principals, and
the director of the Office of Human Rights Education. They are very up-front
about why this office exists (see LINK below): "The Office of Human Rights
Education focuses on issues of human rights and reflects Newton North's
commitment to issues of diversity. It serves as a resource for issues regarding
gender, race, Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (GLBT) identity."
Since parents weren't allowed to attend the assembly, their only source of
information was the student newspaper, which reported that the seminar included
topics such as "It's natural to be gay." and "Fabulous Gay History." Students
were given a brochure that informed them how to "discover" if they were "gay,"
and graphically described "safe" ways to engage in homosexual acts. Another
brochure listed sixteen pages of contact information for homosexual, bi-sexual
and transgender organizations.
The brochures can be found at the pro-family website of Mass Resistance (see
LINK below). Also, make sure you watch two video clips on their site that are
part of a one hour video that is used in schools across the nation. In the
clips you will see actual footage of homosexuals brainwashing very young
children (see LINK below). You MUST see these videos to know what is happening
in our schools. Double-click the PLAY arrow. You may have to wait a few
moments, but it will be worth it.
I was horrified when I saw that the first clip included a Quaker religious
school celebrating its fourth "Gay and Lesbian Pride Day." Part of the film
showed a faculty meeting in which a black teacher expressed concern about
teaching the children their parents were wrong if their religious beliefs were
that homosexuality is sin. She was told that she should teach the kids that
their parents' beliefs were wrong.
In another horrendous abuse of the power of government, authorities at
Deerfield High School in Deerfield, IL, 14-year-old students were forced to
attend a pro-homosexual assembly. Then they were required to sign a
confidentiality agreement promising not to tell their parents! (See LINK
Matt Barber, policy director for cultural issues for Concerned Women for
America (CWA), stated, "This is unbelievable! It's not enough that students at
Deerfield High are being exposed to improper and offensive material relative to
unhealthy and high-risk homosexual behavior, but they've essentially been told
by teachers to lie to their parents about it."
According to the CWA website (see LINK below), "Remarkably, even after the
school district's surreptitious actions were exposed, parents were nonetheless
told that they were not welcome to sit in on the "freshman advisory" and were
not permitted to have access to materials used in compiling its activist
A few weeks ago I was asked to speak at the Palm Beach Republican Women's Club.
At the conclusion of my speech, I talked about the importance of electing not
just a Republican in 2008, but a CONSERVATIVE Republican, if we are ever to
have federal judges and justices who will follow the Constitution in their
rulings. If we don't, the problems discussed in this article will only get
Consider the case of David Parker, in which a federal judge ruled that schools
have not only a right, but a duty to promote homosexuality, and that parents
should not be able to opt their children out of homosexual brainwashing
In this case, U.S. District Judge Mark L. Wolf dismissed a civil rights lawsuit
brought by Parker and ordered that it is reasonable, and that in fact there is
an obligation, for public schools to teach young children to accept and endorse
The lawsuit was brought by parents of children in the Lexington, Massachusetts,
Estabrook Elementary School who believe that the school violated state law and
their civil rights by indoctrinating their children about a lifestyle which the
Bible says is sinful.
Brian Camenker, head of the Mass Resistance Organization (see link BELOW)
called the ruling "every parent's nightmare. In the ruling, Wolf makes the
absurd claim that normalizing homosexuality to young children is 'reasonably
related to the goals of preparing students to become engaged and productive
citizens in our democracy.' According to Wolf, this means teaching 'diversity'
which includes 'differences in sexual orientation.'
"In addition, Wolf makes the odious statement that the Parkers' only options
are (1) send their kids to a private school, (2) home-school their kids, or (3)
elect a majority of people to the School Committee who agree with them. Can you
imagine a federal judge in the Civil Rights era telling blacks the same thing -
that if they can't be served at a lunch counter they should just start their
own restaurant, or elect a city council to pass laws that reflect the U.S.
Judge Wolf also stated that even allowing Christians to withdraw their children
from classes or portions of classes where their religious beliefs were being
violated wasn't reasonable. "An exodus from class when issues of homosexuality
or same-sex marriage are to be discussed could send the message that gays,
lesbians, and the children of same-sex parents are inferior and, therefore,
have a damaging effect on those students."
Parents, you had better start getting involved before it is too late. A whole
generation of public schooled children is growing up believing that
homosexuality is "no big deal," to use one youngster's words from the video I
referred to above. They are being brainwashed into believing that homosexuality
and homosexual marriage is just as valid as heterosexuality and the
God-ordained sacred institution of marriage between a man and a woman.
As a pastor, I have counseled with many Christian parents who are confused when
their children express view like these that contradict the Bible. "We don't
understand. We raised them right. We took them to church and Sunday School."
But you failed to recognize the huge control the school system has over your
child's mind. The school teachers spend more time with your kids than you do.
And most of them are required to push the radical homosexual agenda (even if
they disagree with it) in order to keep their jobs.
Get involved with legislation requiring parental notification. Sit in the
classes yourself to see what is actually being taught. If they refuse (as is
often the case), send a hidden tape recorder with your child to these classes.
Demand copies of the books and curriculum materials. Make a pest of yourself!
You owe it to your child.
