A nationally distributed training video produced by a “gay” advocacy group – which claims it’s been shown on more than 100 public television stations – advises teachers to promote homosexuality as normal and healthy to children as young as kindergarten age, regardless of what values the child has been taught at home.
“We are asking kids to believe this [homosexuality] is right. Not as a matter of moral principle, but as a matter of, we’re educating them and this is part of what we consider to be a healthy education,” one unidentified teacher said during the videotaped meeting of educators preparing to teach – or as their critics charge, “brainwash” – their students.
That particular response was to a question from another teacher who wondered how to approach homosexual advocacy when a student comes from a background of biblical teaching, that is, that homosexuality is a sin.
“I don’t know what to do about this but, as a school are we saying that kids have to support this? I guess that’s what it sounds like to me that we’re saying. If a child comes from a background that says homosexuality is not correct, are we telling that child that they’re supposed to, this is what you are supposed to do?” asked the teacher.
The answer was a resounding yes.
The comments are just some of what is horrifying parents who now are seeing video clips of the “It’s Elementary” video prepared for use in schools.
Brian Camenker, who heads the Mass Resistance organization, has publicized the videos, and told WND said people are flooding his office with calls, asking what they can do.
“They’re physically sickened by watching that. People with kids are wondering is this what’s going to happen to them in schools in America,” Camenker told WND. “The reaction we’ve gotten has been overwhelming.
“It’s one thing in the abstract to read about what’s happening in the schools, it’s another thing to actually see it,” he said.
The excerpts show actual footage of teachers indoctrinating children that homosexuality is “healthy education.”
As WND has reported, California lawmakers currently are considering a bill that would not only promote homosexuality, it would ban anything from public schools that could be perceived as “reflecting adversely” on the homosexual lifestyle choice.
Could that target a statement of Christian belief, or a Bible verse? Sure, say those battling the issue.
Camenker said the videos originally were posted on Youtube, but were taken down suddenly to be replaced with some pro-homosexual promotions. “It’s some really nasty stuff. The gays have put up things calling anybody who doesn’t [endorse homosexuality] bigots,” he said.
Camenker said the 78-minute video was produced and distributed by homosexual activists and is “meant to be a training video for homosexual activist teachers across the country.”
The video shows administrators telling teachers to talk “about gay and lesbian issues” and teachers showing students pictures of celebrity homosexuals.
Students are grilled by teachers about how they would feel if someone told them they couldn’t have two moms. “What do you mean by open-minded?” a teacher asks what appears to be about a 1st-grader.
“If you’re not very open-minded, say there’s a new vegetable, then you won’t try it. If you are open-minded, then you would try it,” the student responds.
Another teacher asks students to think about words that would “make a gay person feel bad.”
Another adult is quoted, “I don’t think it’s appropriate that values only be taught at home …”
Still another segment shows young children applauding wildly as a teacher publicly announces his homosexuality.
“Although ‘It’s Elementary’ was made over a decade ago, it’s still a major training film for homosexual activists, is still being shown in schools across the country, and has become a standard feature at homosexual teachers’ conferences,” the Mass Resistance site says. “How much further has that agenda reached since then? How many more young children are being desensitized to homosexuality in their young years by these sophisticated techniques. And more importantly, when are you going to get involved to do something about it?”
A LifeSiteNews report quoted Stephen Bennett, who runs Stephen Bennett Ministries as warning about the “brainwashing” shown in the video.
Bennett told LifeSiteNews he was horrified, and “had tears in my eyes” after watching. “It’s so heartbreaking to see little kids brainwashed,” he said.
The online company that still sells the video notes that it has been shown on more than 100 public television stations and “model’s excellent teaching about family diversity, name-calling, stereotypes, community building and more.”
“We make films that make change,” said Women’s Educational Media, the maker. “We ensure that our films are used to inspire meaningful social change.”
It also has produced films promoting homosexuals as parents and the 2004 San Francisco debacle where thousands of same-sex couples were given marriage licenses that later were declared invalid by the state Supreme Court.
The homosexual activist strategy is stated plainly in the film’s promotion. “Waiting to teach children to accept differences of all kinds until middle school or high school is too late; statistics show that by sixth, seventh and eight grades, harmful stereotypes already have begun to take hold …”
