Assault on Children and Family Continues in Public Education
This time it’s in Montana.
The Helena school district is proposing, and it appears the school board has the votes to approve, a new comprehensive sex-ed curriculum that will teach children about same-sex intercourse.
Kindergartners will learn proper names of sexual body parts, first graders will be taught that sexual relations can happen between two men and two women and fifth graders will be taught the various ways people can have intercourse.
Having been in contact with families in Helena who read Faith and Freedom’s publications and are involved in this matter, I can tell you there has been an honest attempt to persuade the school board to withdraw this plan. It does not appear that is going to happen. Things are now boiling over in the area.
The superintendent and supporting board members are doing what they always do in these cases. They try to appease and mislead parents who oppose their actions.
They are telling the parents to calm down, that if they do not agree with the new curriculum they can simply “opt-out” their child.
The problem, as Jeff Laszloffy, president of Montana Family Foundation points out, is that the proposed sex-ed program is both systemic and comprehensive. It will be infused into every part of the curriculum from K through 12.
Those who strongly oppose this assault say the school wants to indoctrinate rather than educate.
Indeed they do.
President Obama’s so-called “Safe School” Czar, Kevin Jennings, and others like him, have worked tirelessly for more than two decades to bring a radical homosexual agenda to this place in your child’s classroom.
Jennings, a homosexual activist, founded the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) back in 1990 and continued to lead the organization until shortly before Obama appointed him “Safe School Czar.” GLSEN is credited with most of the success in advancing the homosexual agenda in public education.
Among the many occasions where Jennings has stood against family values and traditional beliefs, the one he himself has written about regarding his attitude toward God is most stunning.
He has said that a deep seated hatred of God and religious believers began when he fully embraced the homosexual lifestyle and bid God farewell with these words: “Screw you, buddy.”
He is our President’s choice to keep your school “safe”.
This is why we work hard to advance Judeo-Christian values and principles in our culture and work to help elect leaders who will support and honor those values.
Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Blessed.
This blog has expressed strong disapproval of Mr. Jennings. He should not be around any children. For those of you who do not know Mr. Jennings, this is who he is:
By Troy Silva
Kevin Jennings is Safe School Czar not by some vetting breakdown. He was an official in the Obama Campaign as its Gay-Lesbian-Bisexual fund-raising co-chair. For twenty years until 2008, Jennings succeeded on a massive scale at pro-homosexual propagandizing of school children. His adeptness and accomplishment at semantic deception are extraordinary.
In a 1990 “report” for the Massachusetts Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth, it was Jennings himself who re-coined the very term “safe school” to mean a pro-homosexual school. Just as the word “gay” is forever tainted and can now rarely be used in its original sense without prompting the snickers or confusion of the listener, so the term “safe school” is now a post-op product of Jennings that bears no similarity to its original meaning.
This fairly recent change is lost on most of the public, to the severe detriment of millions of American children in public school whose curriculum is controlled by edu-crats who use the Jennings definition. The term “safe school” in the fraudulent sense used by Jennings, et al, must not be confused with the original sense of the term, which was quite literal. The term in this original sense dates at least to the Reagan-era Department of Education “safe school” initiative to curb drug and alcohol use in schools. Remember the “Just say no” campaign of that era? Today, however, the term in the speciously redefined sense is now used on the Department of Education web site, where incidentally it states that Jennings and his partner, Jeff Davis “are the proud parents of three dogs”, including a “grand dog”. The cultural notion of what constitutes absurdity has slackened a bit, has it not? Were Ronald Reagan to have read such a line, he would most assuredly have thought it a spoof!
Jennings boasted in a 1995 speech entitled “Winning the Culture War” that he “tilted” the 1990 Massachusetts report with use of the term “safe” in order to put opponents of pro-homosexual curriculum in that state “on the defensive”. His national template, used over and over in hundreds of districts and thousands of schools across the country, is to fabricate an epidemic of bullying and violence to homosexuals in schools, in part by citing bogus census or other statistics where classes of people are conflated to come-up with artificially high numbers of incidents of sexual-orientation-based “bullying”, “harassment” or violence.
The next step is to contend that the only solution is to make “allies” out of 100% of the straight students in the school or district. “Allies” are made by implementing a usually district-wide “safe-schools” or “anti-bullying” curriculum that force-feeds homosexual propaganda to kindergarten through 12th grade. Prominent psychologists and psychiatrists who oppose them notwithstanding, these towering intellects that run school districts reject all research that will contradict their foregone conclusions.
While there is much controversy even among secular mental health professionals as to whether or not homosexuality is disordered, there is no such controversy as to heterosexuality. This is an additional, secular reason that all lifestyles should therefore not enjoy parity in school curricula. Why do the Jennings types fear the presentation of research data from all sides, rather than just their own? If indeed Jennings and company valued academic freedom and fearless intellectual inquiry, they would also present the findings of these prominent doctors, who have a lot of studies to back up their positions.
The term “ally”, a play on Jennings’ Gay-Straight Alliance, is another buzzword which denotes a straight student who worships LGBT’s and unequivocally endorses their lifestyle, and who reports on any student who so much as voices an opposition to homosexuality. Such voiced opposition is punished as the “bullying” of a “hater”. “Ally of the month” awards are then handed-out at monthly school assemblies. Even assuming for the sake of argument that there were an epidemic of bullying and violence at schools against homosexuals, the contention of parents who oppose the pro-homosexual curricula is that what the schools are doing is unconstitutional. The purported end does not justify the means here. Those pushing this pro-homosexual curricula, who omit from the equation the Constitutional rights of the parents and children who oppose them, ought to be able to understand this concept.
In his revelatory 1995 speech, Jennings accurately stated that in order for his side to win, it was essential to keep control of the terminology, especially the term “safety”. He admittedly seized on the pre-existence of this popular Reagan theme and nomenclature of “safe schools.” The tactic worked well for him; he got his pro-homosexual curriculum in Massachusetts. And if it worked in Massachusetts, Jennings realized that it could work nationwide — and it has.
Jennings founded the Gay Straight Alliance GSA and the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) which have imparted and logistically supported his original propaganda model to thousands of GSA staff presently indoctrinating children in grades K-12 in every state. A couple of other important examples of his ability to lie semantically are his use of the terms “Straight” and “Alliance” in the GSA and GLSEN names in order to falsely imply that the GSA and GLSEN are some dialoguing roundtable. He thus nicely disguises the insidious propaganda machines that these organizations truly are. Parents should check their school or district curriculum for seemingly innocuous terms as “safe school”, “anti-bullying”, “safe space”, “hate-free”, “tolerance”, “respect differences”, “be an ally”, “no name calling day”, “be who you are”, “free to be fully me”, “day of silence”, and so forth. If these terms are present, they are defined by Jennings, not Webster, and the accompanying curricular material will probably be objectionable.
Jennings’ jargon and the mythical bullying epidemic even showed-up in the recent Presidential address to school children: (emphasis added):
Maybe you’ll decide to stand up (referring to “allies”) for kids who are being teased or bullied (disagreed with) because of who they are or how they look (homosexual or transvestite), because you believe, like I do, that all kids deserve a safe (pro-homosexual) environment to study and learn.
The Jennings terminology in this line of the controversial speech was no doubt unrecognized by the average adult reader as anything but generic. Unlike the adult audience who watched the speech voluntarily if at all, children across the country in public schools, at whom the speech was directed and who were its captive audience, hear these identical psychobabble terms day in and day out in the very precise context of the nationwide pro-homosexual curriculum designed by Jennings. These children knew exactly what was meant by these terms as used in the Presidential speech.
For the students who may have previously debated or voiced any opposition to their school’s pro-homosexual curriculum content, there was now the President on television taking the side of their school administration and its curriculum content. It’s ironic that the Presidential bully pulpit was used in support of the fraudulently-named “anti-bullying” regimen of so many hundreds of school districts. Had the speech line been referring to race, handicap or gender, there would have been no need to disguise terms. Nor would the trademark Jennings jargon have been used.
The influence of the Jennings ilk on the speech is quite obvious to those of us who are sensitized to the jargon used nationwide by the homosexual-indoctrination movement. In echoing the jargon of the pro-homosexual curricula, the President mightily validated the profound distrust voiced by so many Americans when his intention to give the school speech was announced.
Fox News and Rush Limbaugh recently covered the scandal of some 250 California public schools ordering the pro-homosexual “Boy in a Bikini” cartoon indoctrination video. I am the father who was interviewed recently on Fox and Friends with my attorney, Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute.
The topics were the video and the force-fed pro-homosexual curriculum in my school district and others. Although until now the Jennings and school-video scandals have been covered separately, there is a substantial connecting line to draw between Kevin Jennings and “Boy in a Bikini.” Kevin Jennings founded the GSA in 1988. Youth in Motion, the video producer comprised of a partnership between Jennings’ GSA and the company Frameline, actually produced “Boy in a Bikini”, and also distributes this indoctrination video to hundreds of schools — including our local elementary school. So the reprehensible “Boy in a Bikini” video and many other vile propaganda videos were co-produced by the very GSA founded by Safe School Czar Kevin Jennings!
Expect more of this, funded with your federal tax dollars.

The lawsuits against Scott Whiteman and Brian Camenker
NOTE: Kevin Jennings, the founder of GLSEN, was appointed by the Obama administration to run the Office of Safe & Drug Free Schools in the US Department of Education! GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network) is a national homosexual organization that targets children in the public schools, and has formed “gay straight alliance” clubs in schools across the country. Jennings was the Executive Director of GLSEN at the time and was the keynote speaker at this conference!]
Have you wondered what homosexual activists do when they are alone with kids in the tax-funded “gay clubs” in schools and other activities? It’s not pretty. In fact, it’s very disgusting. Now you can hear for yourself.
“Fisting [forcing one’s entire hand into another person’s rectum or vagina] often gets a bad rap….[It’s] an experience of letting somebody into your body that you want to be that close and intimate with…[and] to put you into an exploratory mode.”
The above quotation comes from Massachusetts Department of Education employees describing the pleasures of homosexual sex to a group of high school students at a state-sponsored workshop on during GLSEN’s “Teach-Out” Conference on March 25, 2000 held at Tufts University. Approximately 200 young teens and 300 adults attended the day-long event. Kids were bussed in from high schools across Massachusetts.
We have the actual audio recordings of what went on at one such event in March of 2000. Children as young as 12 were instructed by adults (state employees!) how to perform a range of dangerous and perverted homosexual sex acts.
These included: homosexual oral sex techniques, inserting one’s entire hand in someone else’s rectum, sado-masochism techniques, girls using “dildos” and rubbing their sex organs together for pleasure, and much more.
When we revealed this to the world a few months later it made national news. It was reported in all the Boston media – radio, TV and newspapers – and several national networks. FOX News came to Boston from New York to report on it. We made sure that each member of the Massachusetts Legislature was given a copy of the tape.
GLSEN (and Kevin Jennings) did not dispute that the recordings were genuine or that the events did not take place as we described them. Instead, they tried to get a court to ban the tape and sue us. In fact, Jennings defended the event.
But the Massachusetts Legislature wasn’t fazed. They caved in to the powerful homosexual movement. They have continued to fund GLSEN with taxpayer money. And in 2006 the Legislature wrote GLSEN into the general laws as a mandated member of the tax-supported Massachusetts Commission for GLBT Youth. This is the low opinion that our legislators have of your children.
On April 18, 2000, Scott Whiteman, who attended the GLSEN conference and made the recordings, hand-delivered an affadavit describing the event to the office of Middlesex County District Attorney Martha Coakley. He received no response from Coakley, nor did she take any action whatsoever other than to acknowledge that she received the affadafit. (Martha Coakley is now the Massachusetts Attorney General and has recently raised money for homosexual activist causes.)
(Thanks to Scott Brown. Martha did not make it to the US Senate!)
A few weeks after the incident Scott Whiteman, who was Executive Director Parents Rights Coalition (now known as MassResistance), collaborated with Brian Camenker, president of Parents Rights Coalition, and wrote an article about it that was published in the May edition of Massachusetts News, a newspaper distributed across the state. The incident was dubbed “Fistgate” by Massachusetts News publisher Ed Pawlick. A week later the tapes were played on WTKK radio in Boston by evening talk show host Jeanine Graf. That sparked a media firestorm in Boston as excerpts from the tapes were played on radio and television news shows.
Soon afterwards, the three state employees were fired by the Department of Education.
The homosexual movement responded by persuading a Superior Court judge to ban the playing of the tapes, and then initiating a lawsuit against Camenker, Whiteman, and Parents Rights Coalition, claiming that they had violated an obscure and antiquated Massachusetts wiretapping law and seeking monetary damages. The “Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders” (GLAD) — the same state-funded group that won the Goodridge same-sex “marriage” case — went right into action.
A few months later, Margot Abels, one of the fired instructors, managed to get an arbitrator in the Mass. Dept. of Education to reinstate her job. She didn’t take her job back, but instead initiated her own lawsuit against Camenker, Whiteman and Parents Rights Coalition to collect damages. She was completely unrepentent of her actions with the kids in the conference.
“I don’t know that we would have done anything differently,” Abels arrogantly told the homosexual newspaper Bay Windows. “We didn’t feel like we had to hide our work. We didn’t feel like we had done anything wrong.”
After a years of court activity the GLAD lawsuit ended in 2005, when GLAD essentially abandoned the case. However, Margot Abels continued to pursue her lawsuit against Camenker and Whiteman. That suit was settled in 2006.
The terms of the settlements allow Camenker to distribute the tape and other information regarding the incident with no restrictions.
