Letter to the Editor: Democrats want to push sexual orientation propaganda on our children



Brandon Straka: A growing group of gays are walking away from the radical Democrat agenda

Democrat lawmakers were not content to make abortion legal up to the moment of birth. Here’s more offensive rot that is headed to the state law books. Apparently we are not providing our children, from kindergarten age and older, sufficient information about the sex act, or their need to be accepting of every form of sexual orientation, up to and including transgender men (and now young boys, who wear skirts and makeup, and young and older women who may, in future, have their breasts removed and take male hormones to grow beards.)

It boggles the mind that so small a minority should carry such great weight in matters of lawmaking. Democrats are falling all over themselves to please the gay lobby. But even gays are dismayed by the pandering.

A New York City hairdresser, Brandon Straka, started the WALKAWAY movement (#WalkAway), encouraging folks to walk away from the Democrat Party. The website has received “tens of thousands of video and written testimonials from people who just feel that the Democratic Party has become too extreme, has become too hateful, too divisive, and they don't want it anymore."

Let your Illinois state legislators know that SB2762 “REACH Act” is unacceptable, trampling parental rights to educate their children consistent with parental values.  Information about the bill is found at IllinoisFamily.org.

  1. Communist-like acts of denying parental rights and religious freedom to parents in Illinois. Mother Illinois thinks it knows what’s best for your child, you don’t. The state govt denies the protected right for parents to give their morals, religion, and values to their children!
    The Creator God who, as recognized by our Declaration of Independence, endowed us with unalienable rights; assigned to parents the responsibility to provide for the education & moral instruction of their children: Proverbs 1:8-9, 6:20-21, 13:1, 22:6 & 23:19-22; Genesis 18:19; Deuteronomy 4:9-10 & 6:1-7; Ephesians 6:1-4; 2 Timothy 1:5 & 3:15-17.
    Should man be ruled by God’s law or are they to be ruled by the whims of a dictatorial democrat-controlled state legislature. Are children the property of the state as in Mother Russia, or are they and their parents free under constitutional law.
    The misery & bitterness index for true Bible believing Christians is off the scale for parents… because the oppressive democrat-controlled Illinois state legislature thinks they are above the Illinois constitution

  2. You could not be more accurate. We’re like the frog in the water slowly coming to a boil. A few Christians are aware, but most parents are clueless. My school board member tells me the board has “no control” over these awful curriculum requirements, as they are passed by state law, but I would give anything to see a revolt by school boards across the state.
    Concerned people should consider joining scheduled protests in Springfield. Three dates, two in March, the last April 1, for Life Advocacy Day will protest the planned Democrat repeal of Parental Notice of Abortion. You don’t have to be Catholic to join the protest.

  3. School boards often contain a number of social butterflies who are there to build resumes, not to pay attention to what is being taught. Many board members are gutless wonders.
    In some rural areas they run for the boards only to fight budget increases that would raise their property taxes.
    To hell with what the state wants. School boards are independently elected by residents of their districts. They should revolt, then see if the state has the legal right to impose this crap on them.
