IL House votes to require LGBTQ History for public school students




SPRINGFIELD – Should persons your child reads about in history class be included in their studies simply because of how those historical figures chose to express his/her sexual identities?  

Sixty of the 74 Illinois House Democrats believe Illinois public school students  should be required to learn how lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders and persons of other sexual orientations contributed to the history of the United States. Sixty was the number needed to pass HB 246 – and allow other Democrats to step off the floor to register an "NV," protecting them from fury of conservative-leaning districts or vote "No."

The bill moves to the Senate, where a super majority of Democrats control, and will most likely be signed into law by Governor Pritzker. 

The measure as proposed applies – for now – to Illinois public schools. 

The House sponsor and co-sponsors are Rep. Anna Moeller - Sara Feigenholtz - Lamont J. Robinson, Jr. - Sam Yingling - Kelly M. CassidyTheresa MahJoyce MasonDaniel DidechJonathan CarrollJennifer Gong-GershowitzKarina VillaAnn M. WilliamsDelia C.

And we're hearing Republicans are trying to rebuild the party totally avoiding the social issues.

  1. TIM SCHNEIDER – STEP DOWN!!! You are not up to the task of leading the IL GOP. The 2020 election is rushing up quickly and you are wasting precious months. The IL GOP needs a leader with vision— one who can think strategically, act decisively, inspire people to action and grow the party. Mr. Schneider, you may think you’re a leader, but look behind you… if no one is following you, you are NOT a leader. STEP DOWN.

  2. You know, in the old days we called them queers for a reason. The idea was to NOT normalize deviant behavior. Now look at where acceptance has gotten us – gay marriage. Your Supreme Court overruled the Defense of Marriage act and various voter passed state laws and stated that beautiful institution between a man and a woman that creates another life as an expression of love is the same as two perverts in the men’s room at the train station. Where were the riots, did any cities burn – nope, we the sheeple allowed a beautiful institution to be sullied by degenerates.
    And now, your children are being indoctrinated and taught this perverse behavior is something to be accepted and honored.
    People need to push back and push back hard. Are your schools teaching that European historical culture has done more to elevate the circumstances of man than any other culture – nope. Do they teach they greatness of this nation, nope but what are they teaching is that a bunch of none-union-pipefitters are worthy of study.

  3. Bankrupting the state, raising taxes, inviting in illegal aliens, legalizing infanticide and pushing the Gay agenda on children. This is the Blue State agenda. Way to go people Illinois and my home county of DuPage! You are so enlightened!

  4. True Christian parents don’t want their children taught that lgbt propaganda as history, and it VIOLATES their constitutionally protected right of religious freedom to teach THEIR children that homosexual behavior is a sin. When govt can tell you what you can’t believe then there is no religious freedom. No Christian can rewrite the Bible or ignore parts to please an oppressive state government. To be a true Christian one must have faithful obedience to God’s word.
    The Bible says, “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin” (James 4:17)
    While sin is a personal act, we have a responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them:
    • by participating directly and voluntarily in them
    • by ordering, advising, praising, or approving them
    • by not disclosing or not hindering
    • by protecting wrong doers
    To a true Christian, same-sex unions, LGBT behavior and same-sex marriage are a sin. You cannot separate freedom of worship, right of conscience, and freedom of speech without denying Christians the free exercise of religion.
    Blind trust in Government is the greatest enemy of truth! Beware of those that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter; they are the enemy
    When you are denied a religious right of conscience then you have NO freedom of religion. Remember, homosexuals are NOTt born that way, there is no objective scientific proof of homosexuals being born that way being remotely true. All behavior is a choice, unless a mental disorder/illness is involved. A few years ago over 150 genetic scientists from around the world mapped the human genome and did not find a so called “gay” or “gender confused” gene. This proposed bill is an oppressive and a tyrannical attack on our constitutionally protected Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights is in the constitution as protection from an over-reaching government. HB 246 violates the Illinois state constitution.
    It is criminal how the state Legislature majority gaslights our children. The deceivers in government are trying to gaslight our children. Gaslighting or gas-lighting is a form of mental and psychological abuse in which false information is presented as truth with the intent of making victims doubt their own memory, perception, and sanity. It’s a cruel and vicious form of mind control. Blind trust in Illinois government is a grave mistake!
    Trust in Illinois Government is the greatest enemy of the people! Beware of those that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter; they are the enemy
