A few days ago I posted an article showing some of the signs at Battlefield High School promoting homosexual behavior and predictably got all sorts of hate mail about my neanderthal thinking that promoting perversion in our public schools is a bad idea. Well, it turns out that the website of the “Gay Straight Alliance” which is promoted in these posters is considered so objectionable that the school system blocks children from accessing it at school. Viewing the website of the “Gay Straight Alliance” is prohibited, but children attending actual meetings of the “Gay Straight Alliance” on school grounds, guided by material from those websites is encouraged? Huh?
I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that it’s the ACLU raising a stink here and arguing that we shouldn’t be blocking student access to websites that promote homosexuality, “gender reassignment” and various other forms of aberrant behavior. They’ve already managed to browbeat local school systems like ours into inviting the formation of student groups promoting such behavior and the use of homosexual-themed “educational” materials and curricula. In their minds, students should be free to use taxpayer-funded resources to investigate any sort of behavior regardless of what their parents think about it. If Prince William County doesn’t cave in to their demands, a lawsuit from them is likely on the way.
Back in 2007 a former chapter president of the Virginia ACLU was arrested for downloading child pornography over the internet, so we’ve already seen what the ACLU thinks about using the internet for purposes of perversion. They’re not only for it, they arguably engage in it.
Instead of any mention in the numerous articles about whether we should have student clubs whose behavior is considered worthy of being the target of internet filters, all we hear about is this supposed travesty that students are being denied access to information on how to be a homosexual. Sorry wingnuts, they’re children. They have a whole lifetime to be bombarded with deviance, and parents in this community generally don’t seem to agree that providing unfettered access to it over the internet on school computers, nor having clubs celebrating perversion is appropriate for their children.
Now if they want to start yet another anti-bullying initiative, that’s fine with just about everyone other than those who start wondering at how much all of these programs are costing in terms of instructional time and taxpayer dollars. They can have the “We respect each other club” all day long, and I’ll complain not at all. When it starts turning into something akin to “the virgin and non-virgin alliance” I’m not buying it as an anti-bullying organization. I’m understanding it as an organization dedicated to promoting certain sexual behaviors and dealing with the negative social consequences of engaging in those behaviors.
A few parents will stand up and demand these internet filters remain, but likely not nearly enough to lend the school board any real backbone to stand up to the ACLU. With one letter this increasingly radical organization will make the school staff tremble, they’ll go to the superintendent with their grave concerns, the superintendent will tell the board there’s no choice but to remove the blocks and a majority of the school board will do whatever the superintendent tells them to do. I figure it’ll take about two weeks at most and the Prince William County School System will let Johnny surf the net to his heart’s content to learn about any sort of sexual perversion that doesn’t involve livestock. As soon as sexual activity with livestock is determined by enough junk scientists to be innate rather than a behavioral choice, those blocks will come off too as soon as the ACLU finds out about them.
It won’t be parent choices that determine the educational environment for children. It’ll be the ACLU and other activist groups with an agenda to make the deviant behavior they willingly engage in mainstream, and to define deviance as moral and morality as deviance. They’ve got the lawyers and the funding, and they’ll chip away at every opportunity to make sure our children are influenced as much as possible by what they think is right, and not by what parents think is right. We’re not going to get rid of clubs whose organizational websites are blocked because of objectionable content, we’re going to keep the clubs and remove the website blocks.
Heaven help us. Heaven help public education. Heaven help our kids.
