I'm actually not going to provide much commentary on this article. It would force me to type words that I really don't want to type. And think thoughts that I really don't want to think. Suffice it to say that the NEA has a dark and scary agenda for our children that is so outrageous it's almost unbelievable. And it's this agenda that is one of my top reasons for keeping my children at home and out of the very determined clutches of the NEA. And just in case there was any wiggle-room in my commitment to homeschool, this article removed the wiggle. For good. Why stuff like this doesn't convince every American parent to homeschool is absolutely beyond me.
At the UN's recent "Commission on the Status of Women," Diane Schneider, a representative of the NEA had much to say. Here's a snippet.
Comprehensive sex education is “the only way to combat heterosexism and gender conformity,” Schneider proclaimed, “and we must make these issues a part of every middle and high-school student’s agenda.” “Gender identity expression and sexual orientation are a spectrum,” she explained, and said that those opposed to homosexuality “are stuck in a binary box that religion and family create.” (emphasis mine)Wow.
If you think you can stand it, you can read more about the NEA's recommendations for your children's education on the website of the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute*.
And then pop over to The All American Blogger* to read a great commentary on the article.
And then give your children great big hugs and promise them that you'll never feed them to the wolves.
I don't know about you, but the view from our "binary box" is just fine.
