Matthew 18:6 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”
On May 24, 2018, I was asked to speak at the School Board Meeting. California passed a law on sex education that was to implemented on June 5, 2018, in our district. For me as grandparent this poses a big problem, because of the severity of the information that is going to be inflicted on our children.
The school board meeting was standing room only. I followed the proper protocol and filled out a form, I was number seven of more than twenty speakers. We had three minutes to state our grievances against this new policy. Within the group were concerned parents, physicians, college instructors, students, and persons of diverse religions.
The future of our children is in jeopardy, because these new laws are about indoctrinating children starting from Pre-K to high school. To introduce them in a casual manner through “Teen Talk,” instructing our youth of the do’s and don’t of sexual conduct and, informing student of all the choices of “gender spectrum.”
My talk was about the fact that at any time, a minor of any age in California may consent to birth control and abortion services. Additionally, a parent’s permission is not required to excuse a minor during school hours for confidential services (Calif Family Code 6925). If my grandchildren suffer from a headache, the school cannot dispense an aspirin, but they can leave campus to get an abortion? For the full three minutes I pleaded my case. I ended my talk with informing the school board that they are not only accountable to the parents but also to God.
The irony of this meeting is that most parents are oblivious to these new laws. One school board member kept reiterating that parents have an opportunity to opt out, but even this is a half-truth. A parent can opt out of some of this so-called “sex education,” but not all.
This tactic is bullying to a new level, and parents should be in an uproar about this.
Ed Code 51932 (b) says parents MAY NOT OPT OUT or EXCUSE their child from any instruction that discusses gender identity or expression.
CSBA AR 6142.1 (also states NO OPT OUT)
This instruction can be for ANY GRADE LEVEL and parents do not need to be notified ahead of time when instruction is given.
Another “great” teaching moment is telling our children that different genders exist and should be respected.
According to the California Teachers’ Association Magazine (California Educator) in the article “Embracing the Gender Spectrum” (March 2017, Vol 21, Issue 6, p. 21) , genders can fall in MULTIPLE CATEGORIES… (Gender Expansive)
They can be:
1) GENDER NONCONFORMING– which means their gender expression is outside of the their assigned sex at birth.
(pronouns used: Feminine identity or Expression: she, her, herself Male Identity or Expression: he, his, himself)
2) AMBIGENDER– meaning you can actually have BOTH GENDERS at the same time
(pronouns used: they, them, their, themself)
3) AGENDER– They don’t associate with either gender
(pronouns used: ze, hir, hirs, hirself)
4) GENDER FLUID– to have no fixed gender (it can fluctuate back and forth between male and female at anytime)
(pronouns used: May fluctuate between Feminine and Male pronouns)
5) QUESTIONING– they are unsure of or exploring their gender identity.
Are we not already confused enough? I promise you that 90% of parents have never heard of these terms. These teachings should be left to the parents and not the government!
Colossians 3:20 “Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.”
Some of the books that are going to be introduced, starting with Pre-K:
This is just the tip of the iceberg, because what this law is forcing explicit information, like teaching children that anal sex is safe. Dear God! Help Us!
Do not accuse me of any homophobic behavior! The government interfering with our kids, is like a stranger telling me that my mother has cancer. It is not their business!
Please watch the emergency board meeting video, which shows Brenda Lebsack, school board member, speaking about the need to protect of our children. This enables you to see for yourself the big mess we are in. Please watch the video in its entirety, and pray, pray, pray.
