Mandatory LGBTQQ Curriculum In Schools

Three weeks ago I learned of two bills being introduced to make it mandatory to teach Kindergartens (5 years old) through 8th grade a curriculum called LGBTQQ. LGBTQQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning.

The Inclusive Curriculum Bill, SB 3249 and HB 5596, was introduced in February 2018. SB 3249 is a State bill introduced by Heather Stearns Senator of Illinois. She also introduced the Same-Sex bill. HB 5596 is the same or companion bill being introduced by Rep. Anna Moeller of Elgin in the House of Representatives. https://www.equalityillinois.us/2018-legislative-agenda explains the following: This curriculum would get Illinois closer to being a state that tells the whole story of our shared history. An inclusive history will affirm for LGBTQ students that people just like them existed and made significant contributions to society. This inclusive history will also benefit non-LGBTQ students, who would be taught the whole story about the achievements of LGBTQ people and the historical events that impacted all of us

Washington D.C is one of two states where it is mandated to teach the LGBTQQ curriculum. If this bill pass in Illinois it will make Illinois the third state to do so. This is what the curriculum looks like according to this article: http://www.fpiw.org/blog/2016/06/02/washington-schools-to-teach-gender-identity-curriculum-in-kindergarten/ The highlights of the article: As reported by The Daily Caller, the new standards require students to learn about gender identity and expression beginning in kindergarten.

Beginning in Kindergarten, students will be taught about the many ways to express gender. Gender expression education will include information about the manifestations of traits that are typically associated with one gender. Crossdressing is one form of gender expression.
Third graders will be introduced to the concept of gender identity. These children will be taught that they can choose their own gender.
Fourth graders will be expected to “define sexual orientation,” which refers to whether a person identifies as heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual; they’ll also be taught about HIV prevention. Children in fourth grade will be told that they can choose their sexual orientation.
Fourth and fifth graders will learn about the relativity of gender roles and why such roles are social constructs that are not inherent to who we are as male or female human beings.
Seventh graders will be expected to “distinguish between biological sex, gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.”
High school students will critically “evaluate how culture, media, society, and other people influence our perceptions of gender roles, sexuality, relationships, and sexual orientation.”
When asked by The Daily Caller “whether a student who rejects the idea that ‘gender identity’ is distinct from ‘biological sex’ could end up failing a course on account of their beliefs, Olson replied that it “would be handled at the district/school level.’”

Please take the time to read this bill for yourself. Note a reading of this bill is scheduled to take place in the Senate on April 10, 2018. http://ilga.gov/legislation/billstatus.asp?DocNum=3249&GAID=14&GA=100&DocTypeID=SB&LegID=111033&SessionID=91

LET ME BE VERY CLEAR. MY OPPOSITION TO THIS BILL HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BASHING OR HATING LGBTQQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning) TO THE CONTRARY GOD INSTRUCTS US TO LOVE EVERYONE. However,, that does not mean that I must agree with your beliefs. I respect your beliefs and ask that I be shown the same respect. My opposition to this bill is that it is an attempt to brainwashed and indoctrinate my child (when I say “my child” I’m referring to children of believers) to accept something that goes against my family values and biblical principles.

My opposition is to the strategy to confuse my child with planting a seed and watering that seed continuously with values that contradict my family values. Look at this excerpt from https://www.equalityillinois.us/2018-legislative-agenda/: Some examples: The nation’s first gay rights organization, the Society for Human Rights, was formed in 1924 in Chicago. Illinoisan Jane Addams, the mother of social work, founder of the Hull House, and Nobel Peace Prize recipient, was in a committed 40-year relationship with her partner, Mary Rozet Smith. The organizer of the 1963 March on Washington, civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, was a gay man. And Sally Ride, the first U.S. woman in space, was a lesbian.

The rationale behind this is Jane Addams, Sally Ride etc. did these positive things. OK, that is good. However, WHO CARES ABOUT THEIR SEX LIVES? This approach of emphasizing the sex life of people who contribute to history is not done in any other group. The emphasize and preference for those in these active lifestyles (LGBTQQ) to be the facilitators and teachers of these classes is also suspect. Rationale, Mr. Smith, the first-grade teacher is Gay and his class loves him. Therefore,...(you fill in the blank)

YOU MUST BE BLIND TO NOT SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING. I MUST RAISE MY VOICE IN PROTEST LIKE ONE CRYING IN THE WILDNESS, I WILL NOT BE SILENT NOR POLITICALLY CORRECT. This is an attempt to create a hostile environment for those that believe in the biblical principle of God creating male and female in His image. If this bill becomes law, it will not be long before my child will be seen as being abnormal or bully for daring to take a stand for righteousness. This is an issue that adults struggle with and I don’t want my young impressionable child struggling with this issue at such a young age.

I started this petition and I’m asking believers who are not ashamed to be called Christians to sign this petition. This petition will be READ IN THE SENATE ON 4-10TH. This petition will go to the Governor, the Senate and the House of Representative. IF YOU LOVE WHAT GOD LOVES AND BELIEVE IN WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS, MALE AND FEMALE HE CREATED THEM, SIGN THE PETITION. IF NOT, DO NOTHING.

SPEAK THE ANSWER NOT THE PROBLEM.THE ANSWER IS THE WORD OF GOD. Father in the name of your son, Jesus, we plead the blood of Jesus over our children families, cities, nation, and educational system. Your word declares and all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children (Isaiah 54:13) But thus says the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contends with you, and I will save your children (Isaiah 49:25). In the name of Jesus, let your blood be a shield over our children, eyes, ears, minds, spirit and will that every ungodly thing will not penetrate. We decree that our children shall be the generation mightily use of you, who shall love you with all their hearts, minds and soul. Let the image of God be covered in their minds and let every boy be a man, and every girl be a woman in Jesus’s name and we decree and declare it to be so.
