“Parents Protest Mandated LGBT Rights Curriculum”

By Dr. Susan Berry

[COMMENTS FROM DONNA GARNER:  Elections do have consequences. Bad elections have bad consequences. If we continue to elect officials who are dedicated to rewriting history by forcing the LGBTQ delusions into our schools and into the minds of vulnerable children, we will see America pay the consequences in this and succeeding generations.  Aberrant behaviors produce aberrant consequences. Medical science and biological facts do not change just because of those who are trying to make sexual perversion appear to be normal.  At the bottom of this page, I have posted excellent, fact-based tools with which the public can fight back against the LGBTQ lies.]

“Parents Protest Mandated LGBT Rights Curriculum”

Excerpts from this article:

New Jersey parents expressed outrage Wednesday over a new state law requiring public school students to learn about LGBT history and rights.

According to a report at NJ Spotlight, dozens of parents lined up to testify in Trenton before the state board of education about the new law that mandates middle and high schools must “include instruction on the political, economic and social contributions (of people in the LGBTQ community) … at an appropriate place in the curriculum.”

The new mandate was signed into law in February by Democrat Gov. Phil Murphy and is modeled after one in California that requires curriculum to be “LGBT and disability-inclusive.”

Breitbart News reported:

Murphy said it was his honor to sign legislation making it mandatory for schools to create lesson plans “about the rich contributions and accomplishments of our LGBTQ community and those with disabilities.”

“The Governor believes that ensuring students learn about diverse histories will help build more tolerant communities and strengthen educational outcomes,” Murphy’s office said in a statement.

NJ Spotlight noted the fact that the state law is currently vague — and does not now require the LGBT material in specific learning standards — “enabled state officials … to avoid taking a stand on the issue – at least for the moment.”

“This law was enacted by the Legislature and falls on school districts to implement,” read board president Kathy Goldenberg from a prepared statement, said the report. “The legislation did not grant the State Board of Education a policy-making role in this.”

However, Goldenberg and other members of the state board admitted revisions were being made to include the LGBT language in social studies standards.

In October, Family Policy Alliance, an organization that promotes family and faith values, created a petition to protect New Jersey students who will be taught the new curriculum.

The group observed the new law “forces radical sexual ideology and its indoctrination into the minds and hearts of our children again, without parental recourse.”

“Impressionable students – our children and grandchildren – are about to be forced to endure radical LGBT sexual indoctrination in the classroom,” the petition states. “That’s after state lawmakers ignored the comments of their constituents and instead bowed to the pressure of powerful lobbying groups.”

Family Policy Alliance added:

Beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, a new mandated curriculum will require textbook authors to speculate about the sexual preferences and gender identity of noteworthy historical figures – and then impose this false narrative on our children in public schools. The radical left’s endless obsession with sexuality should not be forced upon our children!

The petition addresses the New Jersey governor and states the new law must be amended to include a parent opt-out procedure for parents who object to the curriculum material.

NJ Spotlight reported two of the revisions in the learning standards language that reflect the LGBT material:

  • Explore the various ways women, racial and ethnic minorities, the LGBTQ community, and individuals with disabilities have contributed to the American economy, politics and society.
  • Evaluate the extent to which women, minorities, individuals with gender preferences, and individuals with disabilities have met their goals of equality in the workplace, politics, and society.

In Trenton, many parents testified the revisions were a violation of their constitutional rights, including their parental rights and the right to religious freedom.

“I am very offended that you let this pass and you’ve taken away my rights as a parent,” said parent Odalys Vasquez. “I gave birth to my children, not you, and you are forcing me to take my kids out of the public school.”
