“Illinois Senate Passes Bill That Puts Students’ Lives in Danger”

By Donna Garner




[COMMENTS FROM DONNA GARNER:  Along with teaching students important academic knowledge, schools should also strive to teach students healthy behaviors.  Why would Illinois (and California) ever decide that it is in students’ best interest to start extolling the accomplishments of people who have chosen to practice sexual perversion?  Are these the kind of role models we want students to follow?


For many years, the highest rate of sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) has been found among men who have sex with men (MSM). Other LGBTQ diseases are increasing exponentially.


It was reported on 9.27.17, “While both men and women saw an increase in gonorrhea cases, researchers saw the greatest increase among males, particular gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men. The CDC called the trend alarming in light of the growing threat of drug resistant strains of gonorrhea.”


What this should tell us is that gonorrhea cases are increasing rapidly among homosexuals and that gonorrhea is dangerously resistant to antibiotics.  (4.2.18 – “Untreatable ‘Super Gonorrhea’ Case Could be ‘Tip of the Iceberg’” — )



To honor LGBTQ individuals for their unsafe and many times death-producing, sexual activities would be the same as requiring schools to honor groups of people who are alcoholics, drug users, criminals, or sexual abusers!  


There is no such thing as “LGBTQ history.”  This is completely contrived and is the latest nonsensical, demoralizing, self-defeating, and terribly dangerous extension of the social justice agenda. (STD’s in Men Who Have Sex with Men:





“Illinois Senate passes bill that requires LGBT history in public schools”

The Illinois Senate passed a bill Wednesday that would require public schools in the state to teach lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) history, as well as use inclusive and “non-discriminatory” textbooks.

The bill, which passed with a 34-18 vote, would require “all elementary and high schools to teach a unit studying ‘the role and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the history of this country and this State,’” The Associated Press reported.


Supporters of the legislation, such as Democratic Sen. Heather Steans, who sponsored the measure, told Fox News that teaching LGBT history in schools is important to “increase compassion and understanding as well as to provide historical role models for LGBT students.”

“This measure is consistent with how Illinois public schools teach children about other marginalized communities and ethnicities, and it is one more step toward offering students a complete and accurate historical perspective,” she added.


The measure is not unlike the state’s school code, which “already ensures inclusion in history curriculum of the contributions and experiences of other historically marginalized communities, including of people of color, women, immigrant communities and people with disabilities,” LGBT advocacy group Equality Illinois said in a statement.


However, how much time is spent on the subject would be left up to school districts to decide.

Opponents argue that the bill contradicts Judeo-Christian beliefs and have raised concerns regarding religious freedom.

“Schools should teach that we should be respectful of each student and each person. This is what we all agree on. However, schools should not be used to advocate for lifestyles that are against the religious values of the students and parents,” Illinois Family Institute lobbyist Ralph Rivera told legislators in a memo, according to The State Journal Register.


But Steans said she has “worked with opponents and have addressed their concerns about whether it is appropriate for children to learn about LGBT history and the implications for religious freedom.”

“This bill is about historical facts,” she added.

The measure will now head to the House, where Steans said she is “hopeful” it will pass. If enacted, Illinois would become the second state to approve an LGBT inclusive curriculum.
