The religious right has labeled efforts to teach tolerance as "homosexual indoctrination."
TPMMuckracker neatly summarizes the religious right's fury over the April 20 Day of Silence protest against LGBT bullying in the public schools. "To hear some on the political right talk about it, 'homosexual indoctrination' is already a problem in public schools — and it's about to get much, much worse," TMP observes, citing remarks made by David Barton of Wallbuilders, the American Family Association, Liberty Counsel and numerous other "family" groups.
The following video put together by Mass Resistance, a group in Massachusetts that is still fighting gay marriage and tolerance of the LGBT community, is an example of "the evil of this radical facet of the Leftist enemy" according to a forum poster at the You Know It's About Liberty forum. Showing that children of same sex parents have trouble with permission slips, that gays or lesbians are bullied, and that there are famous gay and lesbian people has enraged some of the people at It's About Liberty, one of whom had to "suppress the impulse to reach out and throttle anyone who would deliberately seek to pervert children." Anther wrote, "Suffice it to say anybody sending a kid to a public school like this is truly endangering their child!"
Teaching Evolution Leads to Homosexual Indoctrination.
Right Wing Watch pointed out that the creationists place the blame on the "homosexual indoctrination" movement on Charles Darwin.
In a lengthy article published at the Creation Studies Institute titled Secure Daughters, Confident Sons, Glenn Stanton declares,
Those who hold godless ideologies have long understood that the best way to transform societies and change the way people traditionally think is by indoctrinating children from the earliest stages of education. In the last century, this methodology was effectively employed by those who held the atheistic ideologies of Nazism in Germany and Communism in countries such as the Soviet Union, where the state assumed total control of the educational system—even to the extent of turning children against parents. Of course, both of these worldviews fully embraced Darwinian evolution as a way to justify their actions and nullify the beliefs of their largely Christian populations. While U.S. federal government does not have that kind of authority in our school system (not yet, anyway), is it any wonder that those who lack a biblical worldview in our country, including those with a gay agenda, have seized upon our primary schools as the main vehicle of transforming our nation more to their liking?
In America, the adoption of evolution in our schools has paved the way for the introduction of the gay agenda. Those pushing it understand that nothing will more thoroughly and quickly undermine the traditional biblical foundations of our country than the normalization of homosexuality among our nation’s school children, regardless of their parents’ beliefs. Currently, under the banner of “tolerance” or “equal rights,” states like Massachusetts, New York, California, Wisconsin and Minnesota are actively implementing a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) curriculum in their public schools. But those behind the effort to legitimize LGBT lifestyles won’t be content until this kind of curricula is taught in all of our nation’s schools. So what is being taught, you might ask, that should concern those of us in the creationist community?[…]
From time immemorial, man has sought to rid himself of the God who created him. Our fallen nature resents being accountable to our Creator, much less submit to the notion of judgment, and makes us want to be our own gods. While many vain philosophies have come and gone over the course of human history, perhaps none has been so successful as the theory of evolution at deceiving people into believing that it is possible for people to be the god of their own lives. When he wrote Origin of Species, while he was reluctant to admit it himself, Darwin knew full well that he was providing a rationale for a godless universe. However, as Darwin’s grandson, Julian Huxley, wrote, “Darwin pointed out that no supernatural designer was needed; since natural selection could account for any known form of life, there was no room for a supernatural agency in its evolution.” If anything has become absolutely clear in our day, it is that the ultimate goal of evolution is to get rid of God. To the evolutionist’s chagrin, 150 years after the publication of Darwin’s book, belief in God stubbornly remains, especially in the United States. This has caused evolutionists to ramp up their efforts and to engage in an aggressive campaign of brainwashing, censorship and deception. And, once again, this is where our public schools come in.
As the saying goes, “If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.” And this brainwashing technique is exactly what is being employed in our school system today, where evolution is being taught as an unassailable fact—instead of a theory. Of course, in order for brainwashing to be truly effective, alternative views also have to be shut out, which is where censorship comes in. According to its proponents, evolution has been so well proven that no “real” scientist even questions it any more. Therefore, the scientific elites proclaim that individuals—regardless of how many degrees they may have—if they don’t fully embrace evolution, they are not fit to teach in our schools. This is especially apparent at the college and university level, as documented in the film Expelled, where dozens of scienctists with Ph.Ds have lost their jobs for simply daring to question any aspect of evolution. Indeed, the scrutiny and censorship of ideas being practiced in academia today is worthy of the Spanish Inquistion. Of course, if evolution is true, not only is there no God, but there are no moral absolutes. Morality is all relative. Who’s to say what is right or wrong, or that marriage is only for members of the opposite sex? And besides, what’s to fear? If there’s no God, there’s no “last judgment” either! Hurray! At last, we can do as we please! Finally, we have found a way to become our own little gods, and so the deception goes.
