In a story dated 9/22/09 from the Pacific Justice Institute, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, a teacher with the public school system was forced to bend to the Gay Agenda that was mandated by the school district that he worked for:
A former special education teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District has filed a discrimination suit against LAUSD, saying he was forced to quit for not showing enough support for the pro-homosexual emphasis at his school. The teacher is represented by Pacific Justice Institute.
The conflict for Manuel Fernandez began in the spring of 2007, when he was chastised for not buying and wearing a red “Day of Silence” t-shirt. Administrators at the Miguel Contreras Learning Complex, where Fernandez taught in the Social Justice learning community, strongly encouraged teachers to participate in the pro-homosexual Day of Silence, even though the event bills itself as a student-led protest. Shortly after Fernandez declined to buy and wear the shirt, he received a written review that rebuked him, stating that he “sometimes had difficulty understanding his colleagues’ attempts at incorporating issues of social justice into the curriculum and, at times, he has not been supportive of those issues, such as LGBTQ rights..…Fernandez eventually sought medical treatment for stress and related medical problems and finally placed on medical leave by his physician after more than a year of harassment. Fernandez’ lawsuit, filed in state court and removed by LAUSD to federal court, alleges First Amendment violations and discrimination, harassment and retaliation under state employment laws.
The Gay Agenda is not something to be ignored because I assure you, it is not ignoring us. Particularly, the Hate Crimes Bill is being instituted to bring about ‘accountability’ with the way people speak or act upon people of definite lifestyles other than normal, or what is God-ordained. The bill will make sure that we cannot speak against homosexuality in churches, public school or any other forum that would constitute a negative opinion of being lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and ‘questioning’.
Even the Health Reform Bill (HR3200) has provisions for people of this lifestyle for gender reassignment that you and I will pay for through government funded healthcare.
In recent legislation in Ohio, it is now against the law to discriminate against homosexuals regarding employment and residence. The laws that were in place have always protected against discrimination but not in such a way to take the necessary legal step toward legalized homosexual marriage; the verbiage needed to be more succinct. The same can be said for the Hate Crimes Bill; essential laws were already in place to protect anyone from all heinous acts against all Americans. But what the Hate Crimes Bill will do is make sure the homosexual will have more civil rights than ANYONE ELSE, even your children:
Liberty University law professor Shawn Akers writes that if H.R. 1913, the federal “Hate Crimes” bill, becomes law, “local and state law enforcement would have the incentive of federal funds to prosecute cases involving … preferred victims to the exclusion and neglect of less valuable victims.” Membership in the “preferred” category is “based not on immutable characteristics but on the class member’s choice of sexual conduct … and subjective gender self-identity.” Read the rest here.
Public school is not the place for social agenda of any kind. If church and state are to be separate, so should sexual preference teaching and tolerance. No one tolerates prayer in school – so why tolerate a crime against nature?
