The Wake-Up Herald
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof. Romans 13:11-14

Welcome to Sodom U.S.A.

The homosexual movement has made it no secret that they are targeting children to bring up a generation that will accept the homosexual lifestyle as normal and moral.
Urvashi Vaid, former executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, said "Children should be a special target for homosexual rights activists in the attempt to change society.”(Targeting Children, by Ed Vitagliano, World 4/99)
Lesbian author Patricia Nell Warren wrote,"Whoever captures the kids owns the future."
Ed Vitagliano, News editor for AFA in his article How Homosexual Activists Intend to Capture the Next Generation said,
"The most sought-after trophies of the homosexual movement are not found in corporate boardrooms, state legislatures, or even Hollywood. The ultimate prizes are the hearts and minds of children. In school and in public libraries, on the television and at the movies, from San Francisco to Washington, D.C., children in this country are being exposed to a constant, concerted propaganda effort that aims to instill a homosexual worldview."
In a recent poll by Seventeen magazine, 54% of teens now think homosexuality is acceptable, as opposed to just 17% less than a decade ago! Seventeen also reports that teens are now more likely to experiment with homosexuality.
Youth are coming out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning at younger and younger ages, in middle schools and high schools across the country. Far too many face pervasive harassment and violence at school because of their perceived sexual orientation or gender identity.
There are many items on the homosexual activists’ agenda such as: films promoting and condoning this lifestyle on TV and the big screen, and the public school system, from early grade classrooms including kindergarten through high school. In 1995 GLADD requested that our government put into place guidelines for TV programs to educate children on 'homophobia' and sexual discrimination. In 1997 the show Ellen was a mark for Hollywood in that direction.
In the front of the public school program is the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education network (GLSEN), a group known for persuading the formation of gay-student clubs known as Gay/Straight Alliances (GSAs). Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) are student clubs that work to improve school climate for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. GLSEN's recommended literature implies the early sexualization of children can be beneficial. This means that virtually any consensual sexual activity, as well as exposure to graphic sexual images and material, is permissible as part of the process of discovering one's sexuality. 4,000 GSAs are registered with GLSEN.
How Children Are Sexually Corrupted in Public Schools
One of parents’ most important duties is to protect their children from harmful sexual values and behaviors. Yet many public schools force potentially harmful, sometimes shockingly explicit sex education on their students. Most of the time, parents have no control over the content of these classes. Occasionally, a group of parents finds out about a particularly obnoxious sex education class and protests to the principal or local school board. The class may be dropped, only to be replaced by another class that teaches equally objectionable material, again without parent’s consent. School authorities’ attitude towards parents on this issue shows their anti-parent bias, and their contempt for parent’s rights to control the values their children are taught.
Many school authorities insist that children need comprehensive sex education from kindergarten through high school. They believe parents can't be trusted because they have shameful feelings about sex or have “outdated” moral or sexual values. School authorities, claiming that they know best regarding sex education, usurp parents’ role, allegedly for the “good of the children.” In doing so, they show contempt for parents’ rights, values, and common sense.
Many sex education classes indoctrinate children with sexual values that can cause them irreparable harm. According to Christopher J. Klicka, author of “The Right Choice, Home Schooling,” sex education textbooks used in public schools throughout the country teach that any kind of sex is acceptable, including adultery, homosexuality, masturbation, and premarital sex. In effect, the textbooks preach that it’s OK for kids to engage in any kind of sex that they feel “comfortable” with. .
Horror stories about sex education classes and flagrant violations of parents’ rights confront us from around the country. Here are just a few of those stories:
• In Stephens County, Georgia, parents were shocked to discover that their fourteen and fifteen year old daughters had been driven to a birth control clinic by a public school staff member without their knowledge. The county clinic administered AIDS tests and Pap smears to the girls and gave them birth control pills and condoms. The school denied parents access to the test results and defended its actions on the grounds that the counselor believed that she was doing what was best for the girls.
• The Pacific Justice Institute filed a lawsuit on behalf of parents against the Novato [California] Unified School District for authorizing pro homosexual presentations without any prior notice or consent. According to the Pacific Justice Institute Press Release, “The presentations entitled ‘Cootie Shots,’ exposed elementary school children as young as seven years old with skits containing gay and lesbian overtures. The presentations were followed by question and answer sessions about what constitutes ‘normal’ families and acceptance of those who choose the homosexual lifestyle.”
• A mother was shocked and outraged when she discovered that her son had to read a novel about teenage gay pornography for his English class. The woman had enrolled her son in Newton South High School’s summer program to help prepare him for the English portion of the Massachusetts State Standardized Test. Little did she know that her son's teacher had recently bragged in a Boston Globe newspaper article how he was quietly introducing ‘gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender’ subjects into his academic high school classes.
Because arrogant government (public) schools have utter contempt for parents’ rights and routinely disregard parents’ complaints about sex education classes, parents should consider a better alternative for their children’s sake. They should seriously consider taking their children out of public school, permanently, homeschooling or finding low-cost education alternatives such as Internet private schools, as I describe in my book “Public Schools, Public Menace.”
