Lesbian author Patricia Nell Warren wrote, "Whoever captures the kids owns the futrue"
Ed Vitagliano, News editor for AFA in his article How Homosexual Activists Intend to Capture the Next Generation said, "The most sought-after trophies of the homosexual movement are not found in corporate boardrooms, state legislatures, or even Hollywood. The ultimate prizes are the hearts and minds of children. In school and in public libraries, on the television and at the movies, from San Francisco to Washington, D.C., children in this country are being exposed to a constant, concerted propaganda effort that aims to instill a homosexual worldview."
In a recent poll by Seventeen magazine, 54% of teens now think homosexuality is acceptable, as opposed to just 17% less than a decade ago! Seventeen also reports that teens are now more likely to experiment with homosexuality.
There are many items on their agenda such as; films promoting and condoning this lifestyle on tv (Gay friendly tv shows.) and the big screen, and the public school system, from early grade classrooms including kindergarten through high school. In 1995 GLADD requested that our government put into place guidelines for TV programs to educate children on 'homophobia' and sexual discrimination. In 1997 the show Ellen was a mark for Hollywood in that direction.
ENTER THE GLSEN
In the front of the public school program is the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education network (GLSEN), a group known for persuading the formation of gay-student clubs (of which there are over 700 nation wide as of Aug 2000) known as Gay/Straight Alliances (GSAs).
Who is a big fund-raiser for GLSEN? Tax payers are giving a substantial amount to them, thanks to David LaFontaine, who is an avid homosexual activist and chair of the Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian youth. He has helped allocate more than $1.5 million per year.

Three main reasons homosexual activists claim to need affirming
programs in school is;
1. The high gay teen suicide rate
2. Safety for gays being harassed and
3. Teach respect for all.
Reasons why gay affirming programs should not be in public schools.
Gay activists are pushing to have October established as 'Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender History Month' (LGBT). October coincides with 'Coming Out Day' and is the anniversaries of the first two homosexual marches in Washington, D.C. in 1979 and 1987

POTENTIAL INITIATIVE WOULD ROLL BACK GAY
AGENDA IN SCHOOLS
by Lara McGovern, staff writer
Parents in Oregon may get a chance to vote on a ballot initiative that would take state money away from schools that push homosexuality.
The Oregon Citizens' Alliance has collected over 83,000 signatures for a ballot initiative to decide how homosexuality is dealt with in the schools. If 67,000 of those signatures are valid, the initiative could be on the November 2000 ballot, according to campaign chairman Lon Mabon.
"If there is a program or policy that, in any way, promotes or encourages or sanctions homosexuality to the student, it would then be illegal," Mabon said.
In fact, the measure would require that any school promoting homosexuality would lose some state funding.
"We come from the perspective that homosexuality is wrong sexual behavior; and, therefore, if we allow it to be presented to our kids as if it's good - one, it's going to harm the kids; two, it's going to allow the homosexuals to indoctrinate the kids," he said.
Focus on the Family Education Analyst Dick Carpenter said homosexual activism is proliferating within schools across the country.
"In California, we see students in high schools getting awards to promote homosexuality in their schools. Union activist newspapers are out there instructing teachers how to promote homosexuality in their schools. So we see just a rise of it all over schools," Carpenter said. "Even on the GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) Web site, you can see that they show, in 1990, there were only two gay and lesbian student clubs in schools, and now there are literally hundreds all over the United States."
The Oregon initiative is the first of its kind in any state.

AFA is asking the governors of all 50 states as well as the heads of their respective education departments to investigate whether their schools are being used by homosexual activists to indoctrinate children without parental knowledge.
"When parents find out what is being taught to their children in school about homosexuality, they will be outrage," said Tim Wildmon, AFA vice president. "We think it is time for the executives of each state to respond to the concerns of parents before controversy erupts."
Wildmon mentioned the recent explosive events in Massachusetts, where their state's Department of Education commissioner David Driscoll was forced to apologize publicly after three homosexual activists held an explicit "hot to" session on homosexual sex acts with students as young as 14.
AFA also expressed its deep concerns about he June 10 release of a new pro-homosexual video and curriculum expressly intended for children in elementary school. Film producers Debra Chasnoff and Helen Cohen will release That's a Family!, a propaganda piece aimed at convincing children that seam-sex relationships and the "families" they create are that equivalent of a married mother and father. The video is the first of a three part series entitled Respect for All.
"I suspect even the title of this series is deceptive. It's not respect for 'all,' its respect only for the pr-homosexual view," Wildmon said. "Based on the producers' past work, parents will be very upset to discover that their own religious and moral views are being challenged at school, behind their backs and without their consent."
Chasnoff and Cohen walked the same road with their first video, It's Elementary: Talking About Gay Issues in School. That controversial work instructed teachers on how to slip pro-homosexual messages into everyday school lessons. Those who view homosexuality as unnatural or immoral were portrayed as ignorant, bigoted and hateful.
AFA sent a packet to the state leaders highlighting their specific concerns on curricula such as That's a Family! Included in the packet is a copy of AFA's Suffer the Children: Answering the Homosexual Agenda in Public Schools. That video was a direct response to It's Elementary. Three articles documenting the homosexual agenda regarding children and the public school system were also included.
Please call or write your governor and ask that they review the materials sent to them.
