A Back to School Warning to Parents

0 No Comments

Looking for solutions? Here is a list of do’s and don’ts and especially some warnings. It comes from years of experience as a mother who tried every possible form of education to fit my individual children’s unique needs. Regardless of the state in which you live, the challenges are nationally driven and similar. Watch for your state’s local home school conferences. There’s one happening in Utah that locals will not want to miss – this weekend – even if you don’t home school. It’s amazing!

It’s that time of year again. It’s back to school. Many parents and children alike are excited about a new year, a new teacher, or perhaps even a new school. Many will be looking over the forms and policies, the class procedures and making decisions for their children during the first few days of school.

WARNING. ALERT. Read on….

I remember that almost Christmas Eve-like anticipation as a child. I also remember it as a parent. New clothes, new friends. The world begins anew in August and September and centers around that school calendar until the next May or June.

After raising five children and after a few years into the public school system, it wasn’t such a rosy picture. After a few encounters and disappointments, I began to investigate. Something was wrong here.

My decades of research have brought me to a place where I can confidently say that public school is dangerous to both your and your child’s health. It needs to carry the same disclaimer as a cigarette pack.

That sounds dramatic, right?

charlotteHere’s the bottom line: The public school is a federal welfare program that has been failing for decades, and according my dear, long-time friend Charlotte Iserbyt, Reagan’s Senior Policy Advisor from the US Department of Education, it has been a deliberate act of negligence. She was the whistle blower. She is the source of much of what follows. We are all indebted to her.

You can follow her blogs here.

This outrageous assertion actually makes sense if you think about it, because if a socialist society is the goal of the education community (which it is), it needs a compliant, passive and dumbed down citizenry. And it must have its fingers in every pie, managing and controlling from the top down, making us believe it’s bottom up – through the community council and tracking from the bottom up.

Welcome to the New American School.

Charlotte found documents in her Department of Education files (of which I also have copies) of policies and programs at the federal level that were enacted to do just that – to dumb down. They first targeted the minorities in Chicago with a reading program that failed the majority of the students. Learning to read and to discipline the brain by memorization of facts and drilling of calculations, time against accuracy, was banned long ago and replaced with a new social agenda – today called “social justice.”

This was not a partisan decision in Congress. Both parties have worked together, astonishingly with Republicans leading the charge. Watch these two short videos, one from 1989 – a Republican Secretary of Education – a Republican, and one from the current Secretary of Education – a Democrat.

Listen briefly to both of them. Shock and awe here…

This is 1989, Lamar Alexander (today’s chairman of the Senate Education Committee!)

This is our current Sec. of Ed. Arne Duncan (a marxist):

Lamar Alexanders Community Ed Bill
Right now the community ed bill S 1787 is set to bring this model to every state, including Utah – under Lamar Alexander’s leadership in the US Senate. (Early Childhood Ed is key to all of it.)

But if you think this is all great stuff, you, my friend, even though you think you are a conservative Republican and you LOVE LOVE LOVE charter schools (government welfare subsidzied private schools without accountability to local taxpayers – loss of representative republican form of government) – are a marxist. A socialist. A communist at heart. (I warned you this content was hard core.)

As the government-funded school became more controlled from the top down (state or federal), more testing, accounting and tracking became necessary. But it was not the testing of academic (cognitive) learning. It was the testing of attitudes and values (affective), very subtly integrated into a multi-disciplinary curriculum in classrooms that functioned around affirmative action and reverse discrimination policies. That began under Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society – with the first national attitudes test, the NAEP.

Fast forward to the education agreements between the US and the USSR in the mid-1980s which clinched it – under Reagan, the US agreed to adopt the Soviet system. This is not a joke. One could legitimately say that the bureaucracy in DC is so huge, that Reagan completely delegated all policies to his cabinet, and perhaps he truly thought that the US-USSR education exchange would turn out that the US would be informing the USSR. Alas, the opposite happened.

Utah’s testing director Don Thomas even invited me to go to the USSR with him to observe how well it was done. I should have taken him up on his offer.

Using operant conditioning, another hallmark of soviet psychology to control the people and developed by B.F. Skinner, is now implemented through computer adaptive testing. Today’s classroom has become the propaganda tool for turning the student against the parochial views of their parents as well as training them to be good little communists all through tests that alter until the right answers are given. Attitudinal and valuse answers. Whose attitudes and values? That is the question.

In the 1990s, I attended teacher training in Utah’s Granite School District, where it all began under soviet-loving Don Thomas. I was taught that in the classroom, there are just too many Indian chiefs and not enough Indians. (And I naively thought I sent my children to school to become tomorrow’s leaders. Not so.) Cooperative, group learning. The group was IN. The individual was OUT. You must have that mentality in a socialist society. This is the school district where it all began.

The classroom under today’s title – “common core” – has become a manipulative cess pool of redistribution of the brain. We must lower the basketball standard so that all can shoot the basket. Standards drive the curriculum and the tests.

What does STEM have to do with it?

In the public school setting, the Judeo-Christian God is OUT and STEM is in.

It’s all about science, technology, engineering and math in a completely godless vacuum. All knowledge is scrutinized through the secular humanist microscope.

(“But my child’s teacher is Christian, or Mormon, etc.” you say. What difference does it make when that teacher is teaching a mandated secular humanist perspective? Good luck with that, after 13 years of prime time in that environment, and especially when the teacher becomes superior to YOUR credibility as parent.) Many of the good teachers are leaving this system, and I don’t blame them.

These are all highlights and hallmarks of a soviet education.

So Let’s Meet the Soviets
In 1970, I had the opportunity to visit with Soviet students at the Expo 70 World’s Fair in Osaka, Japan while touring with the Department of Defense. I asked if they believed in God. The response was chilling: “Yes – WE are god – it’s within, it’s our intellect, it’s science. If it cannot be scientifically proved, it is not so.”

The Soviets were geniuses at “STEM” before it was even called STEM. They tracked the student from the school to the workforce with a strong emphasis on these fields of study. STEM was first introduced as a package in 2011 at the UN. I was there in the negotiating rooms. Within two years, it was in Utah with every good Republican implementing it through legislative policy. The agenda behind STEM was overlaid with a socialist bias – whether gender equality or environmental activism, that was the goal of STEM.

Bless the PTA moms’ hearts, they adore it and don’t even know what they adore. What wonderful marxist cheerleaders they have become. You name it, like lemmings, they are on it and willing to follow off the cliff.

Utah and Soviet Workforce Training
In the early 1990s, School-to-Work programs began to be implemented. In Utah, the Republican legislature and the education committee along with the majority of the Utah Senate and House, has implemented the entire socialist-soviet workforce training program. No wonder – it began in Utah. Sadly, they would not recognize soviet education if they saw it. They all say they are “conservatives.” This is so frustrating as an informed researcher that observes the ineptness of the majority of legislators. But then, most were educated in the very socialist system they now support. How would we expect them to know the difference?

Although anti-communists were demonized during the post-world war years, today’s average American would not recognize communism or even socialism if it were right in front of them (which it is). The proof is that most Americans are now practicing socialists. In fact, most embrace the very policies that were the hallmark of the soviet system that controlled the workforce.

We have elected these uninformed, naive legislators who continue to build out the community education policies of the soviet union. They couple those programs with the other hallmark of soviet education – the contract school, which feature no elected boards and a polytechnic approach. So one school focused on math and science, another the arts, and so on.

My former soviet friends, Olympic athletes, were tracked from early childhood ed at age 3 into those athletic programs. School was 12 hours a day, six days a week. They were superior. No one could compete with them at the Olympics.

But is that what education is for? Workforce training and management?

But it all imploded. Because, as Margaret Thatcher once said, the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of others people’s money. The US is headed for an implosion, and I will do anything I can to prevent it from happening to my children and grandchildren.

It took 60 years of the Soviets silencing the churches and only allowing them to preach within the four walls of their sanctuaries, and completely banning religious speech from the school. They usurped the family’s central authority over the children (“your children do not belong to you – they belong to society” – the same mantra we hear from establishment educators running our schools) and implemented in loco parentis attitudes through education bureaucrats, before they realized they had given up liberty for security.

In the US, we now have soviet workforce training systems in place. Because Reagan loved Mormons (his lieutenant governor was John Harmer in California), he jumped at the opportunity to hire one to be his Secretary of Education – T.H Bell of Utah. What a mistake. Bell was a marxist (knowingly or unknowingly), and he is responsible for Utah becoming the pilot program for “outcome based education” the foundation of all socialist tracking and standards over which we now continue to fight.

The schools track everything today – cradle to grave, just as described in those videos. This is soviet education. The school has become the hub of the family and community, bringing all agencies together to monitor and “help” the parents. Remember Reagan’s quote: “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” School officials may say they are here to help but they are actually mirroring the parent-monitoring and tattling system of the Soviet Union.

Do you really trust government to be on your side given the history of Utah’s DCFS? (Department of Child and Family Services – or similar agency in YOUR state) Are you aware of that aggressive track record of removing children from their parents at a high per capita rate compared to the rest of the nation?

Back To School Dangers – Giving Up Your Parental Rights – What to Avoid
When things don’t go well, parents often wake up and realize the rights they have given up. That happened to me years ago.

But every year when it’s Back to School, parents – especially the new ones – rush to sign their students up for their child’s SEP, SEOP, IEP or whatever student plan the counselor’s office offers.

Don’t sign on to any tracking education or occupational plan.

If they have a child with a learning disability, they rush to get that IEP or the use of federal funds under the Disability Act (IDEA).

Do not register your child in an IEP – the government will forever be tracking your student and all mental illness or disability or medications into that child’s government file. It’s none of government’s @#$% business. This is the mindset of the Chinese dossier.

Yet parents readily give social security numbers to their schools, and that is the tracking number for life. Remember, we are now a socialist nation – bringing health care and collaborative social service agencies to the hub – the public school.

Don’t share your child’s social security number with anyone except for income purposes.

Don’t allow your student to be tested with any state or federal assessment and sign an agreement that no data will be shared outside of the school.

We have discovered that the schools are tracking the personal identification thousands of criteria – attitudes and values included. Each student can be tracked and the government will know which ones need re-education if they don’t fit in. It is none of the government’s @#$% business.

Cradle to Grave Socialist Schools

Stop Early Childhood Ed in your state. And do NOT enroll your child in any early ed program.

They really do mean to track the babies from the hospitals, as Republican Lamar Alexander advocated in 1989 in that video. That’s why hospitals issue social security numbers the day the baby is born. And these government busy-bodies can’t wait to get that child into the socialist mindset as early as possible.

Now that ObamaCare is in place, the school will begin to build the health clinic and dispense health care directly from the school. The grants are in place through several sources, much of which is now in the ACA (ObamaCare). They will dispense comprehensive health care, without consent of parents (or with uninformed consent), including contraceptives and sex ed. And they will have your doctor’s support, because doctors have also been brainwashed in medical schools whose faculty has bought into socialized medicine decades ago.

And don’t get me going about the American Medical Association, complicit in all of this socialist management. They own and control the medial records and the CPT codes which reports are now under the control of the IRS.

It is for this purpose that I offer this back-to-school warning. You must hold on to your parental rights. Do not relinquish them.

In the early 1990s I helped craft and author and pass the nation’s first state level FERPA – Utah’s Family Education and Right to Privacy Act. It’s purpose was to maintain the privacy of the student with all the data exchange. Now today computer systems have made it a snap – a frightening one at that.

Who trusts government with their private information? No former soviet citizen that escaped that system. Only naive Americans would do that.

This tracking is the hallmark of a communist government system. It is here and it is now, and you are most likely embracing communism yourself as you read this and think I’m imagining dragons.

Yet a while back, in a local church congregation after the service was over, a special announcement was made that the county health department, in the name of public safety in case of disaster, wanted everyone to provide to them not just the names, addresses and phone numbers of the members of that congregation, but the entire health history, what meds were being taken and who the physician was, etc. A large plastic pill bottle was provided to put a copy of that form in the refrigerator, and the other copy went to the county health department.

Are you KIDDING me? Yet you would have been astonished at how many unknowing naive citizens rushed to the table at the back to get that form and fill it out. (I kept mine as evidence of the deception of the communist culture being built around us as we sit on our couches watching the Super Bowl.)

TAKE ACTION

So here is my additional advice:

Back to School parents, do NOT allow your student’s school – if it gets ONE penny of federal or state funding – to administer to your student any state or federal assessment test you have not previewed or that is tied to common core or to the federal funding each state is receiving.

Watch out for Sage or the AIR tests. RED FLAGS both.

Opt Out. Opt Out. Opt Out. Here is the form.

Study and get together with your neighbors and inform them.

Don’t sign up for the PTA. Do organize a PTO. Get your neighbors and do it. Nothing works like competition. Oh. But that’s such a capitalist idea. (Trust me, the PTA will be very threatened.)

Listen to our radio programming on AM 630 www.K-talk.com Monday-Friday, 10-Noon mountain time. We will keep you updated.

Your student will bring home stacks of papers asking for your signature. Read them carefully. DO NOT CONSENT to anything that you are not sure of and know that your student and your family will be tracked unless you specifically request to opt out.

Sex ed is woven throughout the curriculum. Soon in Utah, because of the recent changes to the definition of marriage, the curriculum will begin reflecting the additional endorsement of a lifestyle that most parents do not want their children to be taught.

Opt Out of any family life, maturation or sex ed program. Opt out of any suicide or drug prevention program. Stay away. These are discussions for families in the privacy of their homes.

UFERPA Nosy Questions Brochure

Present this brochure to your student’s school along with the opt out form. (Sadly, too many of you reading this will say, “But I need to be on the good side of the school in order for my child to be the teacher’s favorite.” To this I ask, who’s the parent here and how much do you love your child and your child’s future of freedom? Stand for something! If YOU don’t, who WILL and, how will YOUR CHILD?)

Read your children’s text books and homework papers. A Leftist ideology is woven throughout. It’s often imperceptible. And if you don’t know the difference, start reading and learning.

That should not be surprising. If I were the devil, as Paul Harvey wrote way back in 1965:

“…I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions — just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

“Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography — soon I could evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science.”

Paul Harvey was prophetic.

Get your child OUT of government-funded schools while you can. Home school them. That’s a tough one to swallow. But it’s the best advice I can give at this point in my life. Find good online programs. If you don’t know how to assess what’s good and what’s not, connect with the parents that do.

In Utah the LDS Home School Conference is this weekend at South Towne Expo, August 21-22. If you are LDS (and even if you aren’t) and even if you don’t home school, get to this event!!! You will find unbelievable resources and network with other parents who are seeking solutions.

Charlotte Iserbyt used to tell me this way back in 1989 when my children were all in public school, and I admit I thought it was a bit on the fringe. I suspect, you may think the same of me as well. But now I have experienced what Charlotte tried to warn me about, and now I am warning you.

It is your choice to believe what you will of my strident message and unsolicited advice. (Where is my tin foil hat, right?)

However, if you value your own liberty, I challenge you to do the research and then to show where I’m mistaken. I have been tracking these details for decades now. I have thoroughly vetted the who’s who of education curriculum and testing development. I have not found one educator involved in public education who is NOT Leftist, socialist, marxist, or communist. They are all the same – it’s about control. Education has drifted from developing the tools that will allow the student to learn for themselves to class struggle and equality and treating everyone fairly. Those educators have stated so themselves. That IS the goal.

Even the ACT and SAT has been taken over by these marxist social engineers. I have a comprehensive presentation on these facts that are indisputable.

This great equality lie is driven from the top – UNESCO, the United Nations where these marxist NGOs gather to build policy. Then they come back around to Washington DC to buy the votes to get the legislation they need.

Watch your legislature. The majority are incompetent but well-meaning individuals who will pass more and more socialist laws over education and the workforce as each year goes by. Then they will run for office as a “conservative” because they could not identify socialism or communism if they saw it. They are not fit for the office they hold.

My final word of advice: Spread the word and vote them OUT.

Blessings to all the good parents out there who want the best education for their children. Be prayerful. Your children are YOUR stewardship, no one else’s.

End of rant.

Looking for solutions? Here is a list of do’s and don’ts and especially some warnings. It comes from years of experience as a mother who tried every possible form of education to fit my individual children’s unique needs. Regardless of the state in which you live, the challenges are nationally driven and similar. Watch for […]

Utah GOP Convention Proposals

0 No Comments

Good morning Utah state delegates! Today’s convention should be a smooth one. With regard to the proposals, in general they have been vetting thoroughly by the State Central Committee. Your representatives there are working hard for our First Amendment right to assemble, select our nominees, define who our members can be and what we believe in.

There are only a handful that oppose this First Amendment right. Unfortunately enough of our representatives in the state legislature voted against this right to pass SB 54, which is falsely identified as a “compromise.” It is not. It is identical to the original legal brief that the DC lobbyist firm Caplin and Drysdale submitted two years ago, which ignited and launched the Count My Vote initiative.

Follow what the speakers say and vote for the proposals that will strengthen our law suit. Please support this law suit with your vote and your financial support.

Stem Cell Company Using Babies born ALIVE? Senate vote today. Call your Senator now.

0 No Comments

Watch this CNN video of the man behind the Center for Medical Progress videos exposing Planned Parenthood.  He speaks out about why the California Judge order the temporary restraining order. They have evidence that the company that filed the TRO is likely using “fully intact” fetuses (meaning babies born alive) for research.  Unbelievable.

That fact that there is money exchanged is the minor issue in this scandal. This is science gone mad. What are these barbarians thinking, and how is this any different from the medical “research” that took place under Hitler?

He says they have 8-10 more videos.

The only response Planned Parenthood and other supporters can give is to label those that believe life is sacred are the “far right extremists.” Seriously?

For those of us who were around in 1973 and were fighting for Pro-Life policies and marching against abortion and the deceptive Equal Rights Amendment strategy – the activist arm for a “woman’s right to control her body.” Before and after Roe v Wade, we warned that abortion advocates would begin using baby body parts for harvesting. We were called “extremists” then.

Here is the drivel we have heard for years from the current President of Planned Parenthood. They lie.

Now listen to a doctor speak out – a presidential candidate, Ben Carson. He clearly explains that fetal tissue is NOT needed! This article addresses the advantages that adult stem cells have over embryonic.

Later today, Monday, August 3, 2015, the US Senate will vote on Rand Paul’s Defund Planned Parenthood bill.

Another Undercover Video Exposing Planned Parenthood – CA Court Bans Video Distribution

Comments Off on Another Undercover Video Exposing Planned Parenthood – CA Court Bans Video Distribution

The truth is being exposed about Planned Parenthood’s lucrative and illegal baby body part harvesting business.  They are using “research” as a marketing message, but they are really violating the law.  Please watch this undercover video released July 28, 2015 and forward it to as many people as you can before it disappears.  On July 29, 2015, an L.A. Court issued a restraining order against the Center for Medical Progress which bans any future videos.  CMP announced it has ten videos confirming this beyond-horrific practice, as if the abortion itself were not enough. This is PURE EVIL!

 
 

ACTION
1. Pray for the people at the Center for Medical Progress who put themselves on the line to expose this evil.
2. Pray for our elected leaders to have the courage to take action quickly.

Call for Prayer and Fasting – Homosexuals and Atheists: The BSA’s Slippery Slope

Comments Off on Call for Prayer and Fasting – Homosexuals and Atheists: The BSA’s Slippery Slope

White background - long

Also: An Open Letter to Robert Gates, BSA Chairman

We ask for your fasting and prayers for religious leaders, government leaders and the leadership of the Boy Scouts of America as it takes a vote Monday, July 27, 2015 whether to admit homosexual scout leaders.  The admission of homosexual scouts has opened Pandora’s Box and it is only the beginning.

Most people believe that the assault against the Boy Scouts of America is simply a matter of inclusion for homosexual scouts and leaders. It is much more. It’s an assault on religious liberty and the unalienable constitutional right to private property and freedom of speech and assembly.

For those paying attention, homosexuals are not the only challenge. In 2013, the same year the BSA voted to include openly homosexual boys (a direct conflict with its own religious policy), atheists have been making the same appeal for inclusion.

According to a USA Today opinion editorial by Pastor Chris Hill and Family Research Council Senior Research Fellow Peter Sprigg, “Homosexual activists demand to be admitted to all phases of Scouting, while conservatives insist that being an ‘open and avowed homosexual’ (not just someone who has privately experienced same-sex attraction) is inconsistent with the Scout’s oath to be ‘morally straight.’ Giving an inch to the demands of political correctness will only put the Scouts on a slippery slope toward complete capitulation”

The BSA’s declaration on religious principle states:

“The BSA maintains that no member can grow into the best kind of citizen without recognizing an obligation to God. In the first part of the Scout Oath or Promise the member declares, ‘On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law.'”

To Lead or Not to Lead:  That Is the Question

On Monday, July 27, 2015, the BSA Executive Council of 80 members will vote on the next step of this slippery slope: whether the BSA will adopt a policy to admit openly homosexual leaders into its organization. For those following closely this unraveling of the BSA, it’s an extension of the sexual revolution that defies not only God’s laws, but natural law and medical science.

Why then are religious leaders so hesitant to stand boldly for God’s law and natural law? One religious leader, Dallin H. Oaks, of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said,

“Even as we seek to be meek and to avoid contention, we must not compromise or dilute our commitment to the truths we understand. We must not surrender our positions or our values. The gospel of Jesus Christ and the covenants we have made inevitably cast us as combatants in the eternal contest between truth and error. There is no middle ground in that contest.”

Will religious leaders capitulate to this new so-called “compromise?” For now (and I use that phrase from experience), according to an article in the Salt Lake Tribune, the resolution the BSA board and delegates will consider would allow charter organizations to decide whether or not they will ban homosexual leaders.

Allow charters to choose. Sounds so fair, doesn’t it?

This approach is not going to have a good ending. Religious and scout leaders that tell us “If we don’t compromise, the BSA will be gone,” are negotiating from a weak position. It shows no leadership. It’s a position coming from fear – of litigation.

Can you imagine fighting a war against terrorism with this strategy?

Wait. The new BSA chairman, Robert Gates, is the former U.S. Secretary of Defense and Director of the CIA. Under his “leadership” the military dropped its Don’t Ask-Don’t Tell policy. Atheists have also attacked the military, calling for removal of military chaplains.

Could it be that this “compromise” strategy is exactly why the U.S. has been losing the war on terrorism?

Should we compromise with evil or sin?  Where are the world’s leaders?

This religious liberty assault on the BSA is not isolated. Atheists are also challenging the BSA ban against them, and they intend to use the same tactics that the LGBT activists have used.

Does it surprise you then that those who believe in God and His commandments are dying a slow death by a thousand stabs, while those who don’t believe in God are taking the BSA down with them on every front?

TAKE ACTION NOW

1. Contact BSA headquarters on or before Monday morning, July 27, 2015.
2. Sign the petition right away so we can deliver it to the Board members on Monday. (We will only identify you by name and city/state.)
3. Call your religious leaders today and let them know that you stand for our constitutional right to freely assemble, and the right of a private organization to establish its policies and religious beliefs.
4. Fast and pray for the BSA and for our sons.

Here is my open letter to the BSA Chairman, Robert Gates.

Dear Mr. Gates:

In May 2013, I wrote a blog post – an open letter to the Boy Scouts of America board members – pleading with them to do the right thing and to continue its “don’t ask-don’t tell” policy. For years, we have coexisted without forcing advocacy of this lifestyle on society, a perversion of God’s ordained marital relationship between a man and a woman.

We warned that adoption of anti-discrimination laws (in any form) is a slippery slope that becomes affirmative action and reverse discrimination that backfires against those who are supposedly harming the discriminated.

For example, how many white, male pre-med students that have achieved higher MCAT scores and who are all-around more qualified than perhaps other competitors have been denied placement in the school of their choice because of race or sex?  How many times did that honor go to another less-qualified candidate? Affirmative action harms everyone.

These policies that define one class as more special than another are popularized in the name of “fairness.”  However, we have observed that affirmative action incites anger and resentment – in two words: class warfare. That, Sir, is what you have done to the military, weakening its internal dynamics and putting heterosexuals in an adversarial position with homosexuals. But what you are now doing is putting minor  males in harm’s way.  You are asking parents to compromise what they teach their children about God’s law.  You are sending a strong message to every Scout that homosexuality is so normal, it must be included.

Now every family that has a young boy that could have benefitted from the moral leadership training of an organization that recognizes God’s law is compromised.

Will the BSA have a dual standard, a dual Oath, a dual policy, materials printed separately for religious charters and atheist/homosexual charters? The BSA is in an identity crisis in a nation that now has a reign of judges that is sending God packing from the public square, a hallmark of the USSR.

Based on these past experiences, and especially in states such as Massachusetts that are well down this anti-discrimination road to normalizing the sexual revolution, as we warned, it would only be a matter of time when the BSA would take its admittance of homosexual scouts a step further to admit homosexual leaders. That time has indeed come.

Many told us we were being ridiculous. Over the past three decades, this has always been the mantra of the sexual revolutionists: “Oh, don’t be silly. That will NEVER happen!”

Well, Mr. Gates, because of you and your colleagues who love compromise, what we warned about is now happening. I can only believe one of two things: either you aren’t aware that homosexuals aren’t born that way, that medical science proves they aren’t born that way, and that the dangerous lifestyle choice of anal sex is hazardous to health, or you endorse all of these perversions and wish to promote them.

It is basic Physiology that the body has parts that provide specific functions. The anus is not made for sex. It’s made for defecation to remove impurities and the residue of what has been ingested. Anal sex leads to dangerous infections, fatal health problems, and shortened life spans. The lifestyle itself is dangerous. The CDC reports that the male homosexual community is responsible for 75% of the top 8 STDs in the U.S., costing us over $16 billion annually for the long-term medical care.

Will any of these warnings be incorporated into the new Boy Scout manuals? Is it not of any concern that this discussion would even take place among 8 year olds?  I will never forget how we could not turn on our TV during the Monica Lewinsky – Bill Clinton scandal without training our 8 year old about oral sex.

Why must we expose young people to these perverted practices in the first place – whether homosexual or heterosexual? Teaching “safe sex” is a ruse.  It has served one purpose:  to normalize sin.  This is what you are promoting.

Please accept my apology for being so blunt about this subject. I am a urologist’s daughter, and we had medical discussions routinely around the dinner table. If we don’t take a balanced approach and extol the virtues of the monogamous, long-term marriage between a man and woman and pair it with the damaging alternative, we are not being morally honest, and few will understand the gross error you are making.

Your position defies logic and violates a fundamental principles upon which the BSA has operated for years – to be morally straight is centered on God’s law.

We have been alarmed with how quickly society has conformed to the demands of LGBTQ advocates. Apparently you are not alarmed. Perhaps your life experience is one of expedience and compromise to go along with the “status quo” as you called it. That would be consistent with how you fought our war against terror.

My Disclaimer
I’ve been called a bigot. My life has been threatened. Tires slashed, windows bashed, swastika spray painted on my driveway and called vulgar names – all because my views. Frequently I’m told, “If you just knew a homosexual, your views would change.”

Frankly, my views have been shaped precisely because I have known many homosexuals and I have witnessed the sadness their choices bring – even death. Many are friends with whom I’ve worked side by side on stage for most of my life. I’ve loved, laughed and cried with them, shared their joys and their sorrows.

I’ve been in their homes and I’ve been inside their “anything goes” mindset. However, I separate what I know about their personal, private lives from my day-to-day interactions. As a producer of a Broadway musical theatre training program that Backstage, the trade paper, rated as best in New York City, I have hired homosexuals not because of their “sexual orientation,” but because their incredible talent.

As a professional actress-singer, we’ve shared ups and downs,  and especially the camaraderie that performing in plays or musicals has naturally engendered. Until recent years, we co-existed, we didn’t discuss our personal sexual lives so openly, and no one was pushing a sexual lifestyle into the forefront of society. It was a non-issue.

Then in the 1980s AIDS hit.  Two of my leading men died very pre-mature deaths because of that sexually transmitted disease. AIDS benefits followed. The Broadway community with which I interacted rallied. And medical science began to be silenced in favor of the politically-protected homosexual lifestyle.

Today a doctor can be fired for being truthful about medical science.  Dr. Paul Church has recently been dismissed after years serving on the faculty and staff of Harvard’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

Now those who draw the line at the definition of Marriage are regrettably in a position to take a stand. To actively promote this dangerous lifestyle as normal is grossly naive. I have personally witnessed the results that have brought such great sadness over time, and in some instances, premature death.

For myself, nothing has changed. I still show up to rehearsals and performances and separate my personal experience of friendly and caring relationships from the public policy that I advocate.

For me, defending Marriage between a man and a woman and adhering to medical science and the age-old wisdom of avoiding homosexual sex (as well as heterosexual perversion and adultery) is a religious conviction as well as a logical scientific understanding. To normalize and compromise on homosexuality is to normalize and compromise on sin. Opposing God’s laws and natural law brings great sadness and loss of freedom to society.  Indeed, it is a manifestation of the age-old adage “wickedness never was happiness.”

But those embracing “wickedness” are generally not willing to admit any “wickedness.”  In order to accommodate the re-writing of natural law, one must first create an entirely new paradigm that fits the new lifestyle.  Such is the case with homosexuality. Such is the case with those former religious adherents that have chosen to co-habit.  The laws of God become incompatible with the views of man.

If you disagree, Mr. Gates, please provide credible medical science that proves otherwise. It does not exist.

Support for Gay Leaders?

Recently the Deseret News, a newspaper owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints reported that you, the former Secretary of Defense, the same leader that removed the “Don’t Ask-Don’t Tell” military policy, are now demanding the same for homosexual leaders. Your remarks were deeply troubling, but not surprising given your background on military policy.

You were named Board president last year. Apparently your colleagues on the BSA board hold a majority view in support of admitting both homosexual scouts AND leaders or you would not have been elected. We were assured the BSA would draw the line with admitting the openly homosexual scout, but not the leader. We were among the doubters. Now here we are one year later, facing a vote to admit them under immoral “leadership.”

According to the May 21, 2015 article, at the BSA meeting in May 2015, you were quoted that the organization’s longstanding ban on participation by openly gay adults “is no longer sustainable.” You called for change “in order to avert potentially destructive legal battles.”

How did the BSA allow this to happen? It didn’t happen overnight. The BSA was apparently so desperate for corporate sponsorship, it brought on corporate leaders whose companies had already sold out to the decade-long arm-twisting from the Human Rights Campaign. They were “backed into a corner” with HRC’s Corporate Equality Index. They compete for the “honor” of highest-rated “homosexual friendly,” in this 54 pages of invasive questions.

In short, Mr. Gates, you have compromised the Godly principles the BSA once represented, obviously principles of leadership you yourself do not believe. In a word, expediency. You yourself said that recent events “have confronted us with urgent challenges I did not foresee and which we cannot ignore.”

What “recent events” do you reference?

In New York state, the BSA has defied the organization’s policy and hired the first openly gay Eagle Scout for its summer camp.

In addition, you cited the recent Court opinion on legalizing homosexual “marriage” as well as the adoption anti-discrimination laws. In your speech to national BSA leaders you said, “I remind you of the recent debates we have seen in places like Indiana and Arkansas over discrimination based on sexual orientation, not to mention the impending U.S. Supreme Court decision this summer on gay marriage…. We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be.”

Is this leadership, Mr. Gates? Is that how successful business leaders view the dreams they’ve pursued? Is that how great national leaders have stepped forward to bring struggling nations out from their oppression into liberty? What would the founders of this nation say to your uninspired leadership? May I suggest that Washington, Adams, Jefferson and other Founders would never have won the war for independence had they believed their mission was to deal with the British as it is and not as they wished it to be: gone.

Your leadership is not leadership. It’s morally deficient and an embarrassment to the organization.

You have admitted that the BSA has the authority to revoke charters of those that defy the organization’s policy, but instead you said it would be “harmful” to the boys.

Mr. Gates, what would be harmful to the boys is to place any boy under the “leadership” or mentoring or role modeling of a man or woman living an immoral life – in thought or practice, as age-old scriptural tenets admonish. As a man thinketh….

You are a product of the sexual revolution and you have been deceived.

Unfortunately, the majority of Americans have also been grossly misled by powerful sexual revolutionists, Planned Parenthood among them, aided by the pro-homosexual media. In this well-planned LGBT strategy, the truth has been silenced.

Denied, ignored and silenced are the high rates of male homosexual pedophilia. The soaring statistics on STDs among the male homosexual community are absolutely undeniable and irrefutable. All of this truth has been overshadowed by the lie that “they are born that way” and that the lifestyle is as normal as any other.

So now the compromise is to allow homosexual leaders, but to also allow individual charters to choose whether they will or not.

Another prediction: this will be the ultimate demise of the BSA as we know it. Already, your board’s decision to admit openly homosexual boys has lost 10% of the organization’s membership. You cite the onslaught of support for anti-discrimination laws, which many churches have embraced.

You cited Utah’s passage of its LGBT anti-discrimination law. Of course, this IS the slippery slope, and we did oppose that bill and predicted this would happen.

We have been losing this war especially over the past decade because too many religious adherents and activists have been confused with how they should be fighting this war. They believe a flawed and indefensible interpretation of what Jesus Christ taught in the Sermon of the Mount when he said, “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” He was not advocating that his followers allow the secular humanists in high places to go unanswered and to respond in weakness. He meant that the meek are those who believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior and who will submit to and obey His commandments, which did not replace the first Ten! He told the adulteress to go – and sin no more.

Your endorsement of homosexual sex defies the Boy Scout Oath to God on its face.

You had pledged not to address this issue during your term. But now you justify it because so many states have passed anti-discrimination laws, including Utah, as you cited.

Do you remember your parents telling you “just because others are doing it doesn’t make it right?”

You cite litigation as an ultimate threat. This is false. The US Supreme Court has upheld the BSA’s constitutional right as a private organization.

Fox News 13 in Utah quoted you in a feat of completely irrational thought: “Our oath calls upon us to do our duty to God and our country. The country is changing, and we are increasingly at odds with the legal landscape at both the state and federal levels. And, as a movement, we find ourselves with a policy more than a few of our church sponsors reject, thus placing Scouting between a boy and his church.”

You mentioned the “duty to God,” and then acquiesced to immoral court decisions. So you will “cave” on principles simply because the BSA may be sued? You said in your recent Atlanta speech to BSA leaders: “Thus, between internal challenges and potential legal conflicts, the BSA finds itself in an unsustainable position, a position that makes us vulnerable to the possibility the courts simply will order us at some point to change our membership policy.”

As a former Secretary of Defense, was that your philosophy for defending our nation and how to win a war? By caving in to the opposition? Perhaps that is why we are still engaged in the Middle East and apparently with this approach, we are inciting more terrorism. Why would ISIS and Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic terrorists fear the United States with your philosophy?

Your cowardly approach, sir, has put this nation in more than a national security risk position. You have now put it in a moral security risk position. You act based on self-preservation, but it will ultimately kill it. You do not know the enemy. May I suggest you review The Art of War.

While you are compromising, courageous leaders such as attorney Mat Staver, President of Liberty Counsel, is advocating civil disobedience (remember Jesus Christ himself was an example), because God does not expect us to obey unrighteous, unconstitutional, unjust laws.  Where are the modern-day Daniels among us?

Religious Liberty Next?
This assault doesn’t end with this compromise. Next stop: a potential legal threat to strike down another policy, the ban on atheists. Indeed the BSA has been closely aligned with a belief in God. On my honor – to GOD and country.

In an opinion editorial, Pastor Chris Hill and Family Research Council Fellow Peter Sprigg wrote:

“Austin Cline, writing for an online agnosticism/atheism guide, complains, ‘It’s disturbing that the media has focused on discrimination against gays, ignoring discrimination against atheists.’

“In January, David Silverman, the president of American Atheists, said, ‘If they are considering lifting the ban on gays, that a good thing, that’s progress. … I would hope they remove the rest of the bigotry and admit atheists as well.’

“The Freedom from Religion Foundation declared in an action alert, ‘It should not be socially acceptable to exclude either gays or atheists. Talk about proof of who’s on the bottom of the social totem pole in our culture!'”

Again, this is the hallmark of communism.  In review, dare I suggest “we told you so” and also in advance of what’s to come?

Ah, but we were mocked and ridiculed even by allies that “it will do no harm.”

Zack Wahls, a homosexual “Eagle Scout” (whose award should have been revoked at the very launch of his anti-BSA coalition) now welcomes your view. The Human Rights Campaign restated its position – no compromise.  He and his followers might entertain their own youth leadership program, separate from the BSA.  But that would not be inclusion.

Their “no compromise” approach is winning, of course. While we stand by and project “no contest” with such “love and compassion” and compromise and capitulation in the name of Christianity, this movement seeks to destroy Christianity. The Human Rights Campaign is well-tooled strategically and knows precisely what it’s doing. They are laughing at you and us.

Mr. Gates, HRC President Chad Griffin, responded to your comments:

“As we have said many times previously, half measures are unacceptable, especially at one of America’s most storied institutions …. It’s time for BSA leaders to show true leadership and embrace a full national policy of inclusion that does not discriminate against anyone because of who they are.”

(How many Americans have already been indoctrinated to the fallacy that this is “who they are?”)

Meanwhile the BSA’s largest sponsoring organization, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, issued this response:

“We have noted the comments by Boy Scouts of America President Robert Gates in relation to possible policy changes in the Boy Scouts of America. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will, of course, examine any such changes very carefully to assess how they might impact our own century-long association with the BSA.”

It’s time for the People to take action.
