Mrs. Biden goes to GLSEN
Marcia Segelstein - Guest Columnist - 6/2/2009 7:30:00 AM

WARNING:  This article contains graphic material which many will find distasteful.  It is included because it is an essential part of the story.
(Moderator Note: Some Censoring had to be done.)

Last night, Jill Biden appeared as a special guest speaker for the activist homosexual organization called GLSEN.  Just so everyone's clear about the group getting a de facto stamp of approval from the Vice President's wife, here's a brief primer on GLSEN.

GLSEN, which stands for Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, proudly claims that its goal is to promote safe schools for people of all sexual orientations.  Many of its programs are billed as "anti-bullying."  GLSEN presents itself as a benign organization devoted to tolerance and understanding.

In fact, GLSEN is anything but benign or tolerant.  What GLSEN actually opposes is "heterosexism."  In other words, GLSEN wants schools to rid children of the outrageous notion that heterosexuality is the norm, and make sure they're clear that gender is merely a man-made construct.  They're not really about stopping bullies.  They're about bullying schools into adopting their radical pro-homosexual agenda.  Not only do they want to teach your kindergartener that it's okay to be gay, they want to teach your middle-schooler how to be gay.

Like the broader homosexual rights movement, GLSEN has worked skillfully for years to position itself as an organization dedicated to civil rights.  In fact, they are about promoting homosexuality to children, starting in preschool.  In 2002 GLSEN held a conference in Boston which included a seminar called "Gender in the Early Childhood Classroom."  GLSEN's founder, Kevin Jennings, wrote the foreword for a book called Queering Elementary Education.  It includes essays called "Locating a Place for Gay and Lesbian Themes in Elementary Reading, Writing and Talking," and "How to Make 'Boys' and 'Girls' in the Classroom."  Note the quotes around boys and girls.

GLSEN's website includes links to recommended book titles for various grade levels.  The kindergarten through sixth-grade section includes Daddy's Roommate, Heather Has Two Mommies, and Hello, Sailor -- the latter described on Amazon as a book that "makes the love between two men as natural as any other."

In 2000, GLSEN sponsored a daylong conference in Massachusetts funded by taxpayers purportedly to find ways to make schools safe and inclusive.  In a now infamous session for 14- to 21-year-olds, gay and lesbian state employees promoted and described a sexual practice called "*******."  One of the presenters explained that it is "an experience of letting somebody into your body that you want to be close and intimate with."  The following year GLSEN sponsored a similar event, called "Creating Safety - Teaching Respect."  The teenagers who attended received not only instruction, but kits containing latex gloves and lubricants, for "safe" *******, courtesy of Planned Parenthood.

So you get the idea.  GLSEN is about using schools to promote homosexuality to children under the who-could-argue-with-this banner of tolerance and inclusivity.  Among the many reasonable questions that could (and should) be asked about such programs is why sexuality of any sort is being promoted and described to children by educators.

One can only assume that the Vice President's wife supports their agenda.  Sadly, we already know that the administration does, too.  Education Secretary Arne Duncan recently appointed GLSEN's founder as assistant deputy secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools.  The announcement of Jennings' appointment included a description of GLSEN as "an organization that works to make schools safe for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity."  Jennings also served as candidate Obama's campaign fundraising co-chair for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community.

Just for fun, let's imagine that an organization is formed ostensibly to protect the safety of Christian students who might be subject to bullying and stereotyping by their classmates.  After all, many Christians were targets of hate speech and worse after Proposition 8 passed in California.  Surely it could be argued that it's time to use public schools and public money to promote and protect those who practice Christianity.  Imagine taxpayer dollars spent to host day-long events with seminars describing what Christianity is all about.  Now imagine such an organization moving beyond the goal of safety for Christians, and instead, finding ways to work Christian tenets into every facet of school curricula.

Setting aside the unlikely prospect to say nothing of the impropriety of public schools actively promoting Christianity (or any religion), let's get back to GLSEN.  What about giving equal time to heterosexuality?  Consider the story of a student at Woodbury High School outside Saint Paul, Minnesota, a few years ago. Perhaps tired of the myriad of pink triangles displayed all over the school (denoting "safe zones" for LGBT students), one day he wore a sweatshirt with the words "Straight Pride" on the front and a picture of a man and woman holding hands on the back.  Not only did the principal ban him from wearing the sweatshirt again, he called the parents "homophobic."  To their credit, the parents filed a federal lawsuit claiming their son's First Amendment rights had been violated.  They also opted to home-school.

Like a wolf in sheep's clothing, GLSEN is not about keeping children safe.  It's not about protection from bullies.  It's about promoting behavior which is antithetical to traditional Christian and Jewish teachings.

Maybe it really is time for an organization to protect students with traditional Judeo-Christian values.  Can we count on your support, Mrs. Biden?

(My Note:  Parents WAKE UP - WATCH - LISTEN - ACT! You must stay informed and be ready to remove your children from public schools. The answer to this FILTH MUST BE NO!)

GLSEN founder overseeing safety of nation's schools?
Jim Brown - OneNewsNow - 6/1/2009 8:00:00 AM

A conservative activist says the appointment of the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network to head the U.S. Education Department's Office of Safe Schools is the equivalent of putting O.J. Simpson in charge of women's safety.

GLSEN founder Kevin Jennings was recently appointed by Education Secretary Arne Duncan to serve as assistant deputy secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools. The Department's announcement of Jennings' appointment describes GLSEN as "an organization that works to make schools safe for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity."

But Linda Harvey, president of Mission America, says the Jennings appointment is a radical move. GLSEN, she explains, is a "child corruption" organization that consistently promotes books on its website that legitimize sexual encounters between adults and minors.

"One book called Growing Up Gay, Growing Up Lesbian -- it's an anthology; they've had this on their site for years, even after I reported on it and others have," Harvey explains. "[The book describes] a man looking back on his youth [who] said that he had had sex with one of his father's gay friends when he was a young teenager -- and he talks about it in graphic terms and that this was a great experience in his life."

Harvey finds it ironic that President Obama's new "safe schools" czar is a leading proponent of an extremely unsafe, destructive lifestyle.

"They are the people involved in the infamous 'Fistgate' programs in Massachusetts where public health officials were describing dangerous, high-risk behaviors to very young teenagers," she says. "Again, this was a GLSEN-sponsored program."

Jennings previously served a co-chair of the Obama campaign's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) finance committee.

AFTAH Calls on Obama to Withdraw Nomination of Kevin Jennings, Radical Homosexual Activist and GLSEN Founder, to Preside over 'Safe Schools'
(Moderator Note: Some censoring was absolutely necessary.)


CHICAGO, June 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) President Peter LaBarbera today urged President Obama and Education Secretary Arne Duncan to withdraw the nomination of longtime homosexual activist Kevin Jennings as Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Department of Education's Office of Safe & Drug Free Schools, due to Jennings' vicious anti-religious bigotry and his role with an extremist homosexual group that has recklessly endangered youth.

Jennings, the founder of the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network (GLSEN), presided over the 2000 Boston "--------" scandal in which homosexual adults -- at a GLSEN-sponsored youth workshop on "Queer Sex & Sexuality" -- guided young teenagers on how to engage in perversions including the horrifying "gay" fetish known as "*******," in which a man inserts *************************.

"Kevin Jennings is one of the most hateful, anti-Christian 'queer' activists in America: he even said '[----] 'em' and 'Drop dead!' to religious conservatives -- while speaking at a church, of all places," LaBarbera said. "Jennings should have been drummed out of public policy years ago for GLSEN's role in the -------- scandal that corrupted Boston youth," LaBarbera said, "but instead he is now being elevated to one of the most important roles in U.S. education policy.

"Barack Obama's homosexual agenda is beginning to take shape -- but he has no election mandate to impose GLSEN's radical vision of celebrating homosexuality, bisexuality and gender confusion in U.S. schools," LaBarbera said. "Anti-religious bigots should not be setting policy for schools -- and promoting dangerous sex and gender identities to youth is the antithesis of 'safety.'" (Men who have sex with other men (MSM) suffer from much higher rates of sexual diseases -- including anal cancer, HIV, syphilis, and gonorrhea -- than non-MSMs.)

He added that "GLSEN's 'Safe Schools' strategy is a Trojan Horse designed to normalize harmful behaviors and sexual identities to impressionable children."

"Americans For Truth will educate Americans on Jennings' and GLSEN's dangerous agenda, and we will work with other pro-family and parental rights groups across the country to urge that the Jennings appointment be withdrawn," LaBarbera said. "We will also work with people who were not voting for pro-homosexual indoctrination in schools when they voted for Obama," LaBarbera said.

(My Note:  How much higher does our so-called government want the EPIDEMIC OF DEATH AND DISEASE FROM PERVERTED SEXUAL PRACTICES?)
