A HIDDEN AGENDA?
October 9, 2009
President Obama's Department of Eduation appointed Kevin Jennings, a prominent homosexual activist and founder of the Gay, Lesbian, Straight, Education Network (GLSEN), as the "safe and drug free schools czar."  A national controversy is arising over the appointment of Jennings because the public is beginning to learn that he may be too radical for a position of any authority over our children.

The history of the Bullying Policy, and what I reported (below) on this page nearly two years ago, will show how GLSEN has been using public schools (maybe even ours) to advance its agenda to normalize homosexuality.

updated: 12/13/07
During its November 19, 2007 meeting, the Board indicated it would be adopting a Bullying Policy that was hailed for going "above and beyond" Ohio law. Although the policy doesn't even fulfill the primary purpose of the law, to ensure that "any student" is protected from bullying, the proposed policy does, however, go "above and beyond" the law by including a list of identifiable minority groups, such as those based on race, color, national origin, disability, and religion.

The proposed policy even goes beyond Board precedent by adding, for the first time, "sexual orientation, gender identity and expression" to any such list contained in both the newly adopted Board Policy Manual and the Manual that it replaced.

Could the Brecksville-Broadview Heights School District have a hidden agenda to use our schools to normalize homosexuality? Before you decide, consider the following:

The Board has already demonstrated a practice of keeping its controversial decisions out of the public eye by adopting policies that advance unconventional values without publicly announcing the rationale behind such policies. go..

The Board has endorsed the School Counseling Course of Study, a course with an objective to have all students "recognize" and "respect" such things as "differences in various family configurations." (go...)
 
Under the recently adopted set of advertising policies, special interest groups such as GLSEN can bypass parents to gain direct access to their children while they are at school.

The District has already endorsed a "No Name-Calling Week," a designated week founded by GLSEN, a national pro-homosexual activist group.

And a majority of Board members have signified their approval of an anti-bullying policy that identifies students who engage in homosexual behavior or behavior that is an expression of gender identification as a minority group deserving of the rights associated with other minority groups based on race, color, religion, etc.

These actions are being taken by the Board in light of a growing trend (go..) in schools across the country that appears to normalize homosexuality in our schools.  Consider, too, the following:

GLSEN encourages the formation of "Gay-Straight Alliances".  On its website, students are offered tools and resources to help them form school clubs in an effort to change their schools from being a "Hostile School" to an "Inclusive School."  According to GLSEN, characteristics of a "Hostile School" include the following: 

Curricula devoid of lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender themes

Books and materials with lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender content nonexistent

Organized and vocal opposition to any lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender inclusion
Homosexuality characterized as sin
No lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender school clubs
Athletic programs unwelcome spaces for lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender students

"The LGBT Project fights discrimination and moves public opinion on LGBT civil rights through the courts, legislatures and public education."
Youth and Schools Program
"The Youth and Schools program strives to make public schools safe and bias-free {emphasis added}  for LGBT kids and teachers.  We help students protect their right to free expression, to establish gay-straight alliance clubs, to bring a same-sex date to the prom, {emphasis added} and to be taught in an environment respectful of their sexual orientation and gender identity."
Gender Identity
"The Project defends the rights of transgender and gender nonconforming people in employment, schools, and public accommodations...We work to include gender identity in state and local anti-discrimination policies, conduct outreach {emphasis added} to transgender youth and students on their legal rights, and develop public education campaigns {emphasis added} to raise awareness of transgender issues."

More Excerpts from ACLU Website
"If you're trying to start a GSA {Gay-Straight Alliance-school club} at your school and you encounter resistance, or if your school places limitations on what the GSA can do that it doesn't place on other clubs, keep reading for tips on what to do and how to contact us {ACLU} for assistance."  go...

"But student harassment isn't the only problem.  Students also contend with prohibitions on same-sex couples attending school dances {emphasis added}, administrators who threaten to "out" them, and blatant censorship of LGBT issues."
"If your school continues to violate student rights or if you are not able to approach your school directly with this information, contact the ACLU for help {emphasis added}."  go...  


"The Bible says it is wrong to be lesbian or gay.  How can schools support lesbian and gay students?"
"Some people read the Bible that way, but others don't.  While students and teachers have the right as individuals to believe that the Bible condemns (or does not condemn) lesbian, gay and bisexual students, schools have a duty to ensure that every student is safe and welcomed.  Schools have to respect everyone's differences, and they may not impose one set of beliefs on everyone."  go...
It sounds like the ACLU thinks that people who believe that the Bible is the Word of God are a threat to the safety of people who engage in homosexual behavior.
*************
Does the Brecksville-Broadview Heights School District have a hidden agenda to normalize homosexuality? I don't know.  But if it doesn't, it's a remarkable coincidence that the Board's policies happen to advance the agenda of pro-homosexual groups such as GLSEN whose objective is to normalize homosexuality in the schools.
