From Lifesite News:
The American Library Association’s recent national conference provided librarians from across the country with strategies for advancing gender identity ideology in schools and finding ways to bring “drag queen story times” into public libraries despite the objections of local communities.
Held in Washington, D.C., the week-long conference brought 21,000 attendees to the nation’s capital and featured workshops with titles such as:
- “Queerness in comics”;
- “A Child’s Room to Choose: Encouraging Gender Identity and Expression in School and Public Libraries”;
- “LGBTQ+ Creators and Characters in Kids, Tween, and Teen Comics”;
- “Reading the Rainbow: Teaching Kids about Pride and LGBTQ+ History”;
- “Are You Going to Tell My Parents?: The Minor’s Right to Privacy in the Library”; and
- “Telling Stories, Expanding Boundaries: Drag Queen Storytimes in Libraries.”
In one breakout session about LGBT-themed children’s literature, librarians took time to brainstorm suggestions for “Non-Trad Families” books they could promote. This included titles such as “My Brother’s Husband,” “Lumberjanes,” and “Pregnant Butch,” the article reported.
As a former member of my community’s school board, I learned there are reasons why schools don’t want parents to have access to a classroom. Officials claim it is to avoid “disruption” and ensure the “safety” of children.
It’s funny how there was always at least one parent in the classroom nearly every day of the week when I was growing up. Yet safety and disruptions weren’t even considered issues back then.
If schools are worried about child safety and disruption, they could install web-enabled cameras in each classroom and give password-protected access only to parents of kids in that room. Wouldn’t schools want parents to know what is being taught in the classroom so they could support the lessons?
The truth is that it’s very hard to indoctrinate a child against his or her parents’ established belief systems if parents aren’t even allowed to sit quietly in a corner to observe what is being presented to their kids.
At a time when children are becoming addicted to video games, porn and social media, you would think schools would want kids to be spending more time reading.
However, with classics like Huckleberry Finn and To Kill a Mockingbird banned from libraries, and Little House on the Prairie discredited, one has to wonder how real drag queens and books about “Pregnant Butch” are deemed acceptable for young minds to contemplate.
Families of faith and those embracing alternative lifestyles are both operating under the same proverb:
“Start children off on the way they should go,and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” — Proverbs 22:6
For Christians, that means to teach kids how to live a godly life.
For others, it means indoctrinate children early and often. If an alternative viewpoint is not provided or allowed, then whatever is taught becomes reality.
If I had my life to life over, my children would have been homeschooled.
