What Are Your Children Learning?
After discovering in 1999 that an aggressive pro-homosexuality agenda was being supported by the Mas sachusetts Department of Education, Brian Cammacher, a concerned parent, discovered that the problem is more sinister than most people could ever imagine.
Several counties in the state were busing students aged 12-14 to attend events that can only be described as homosexuality workshops complete with graphic descriptions of how to engage in deviant sexual behavior.
Last year Cammacher, who lives in a Boston suburb, saw a traveling exhibit entitled "Multicultural Families: Helping Fight Racism" that his son had seen.
The exhibit portrayed pictures of bi-racial couples along with homosexual couples. He noted statements written by the children that they were trying to cure their parents of "racist" and "homophobic" sentiments.
Later that year he examined his 11-year-old daughter's health class workbook in which the stated goal of the course was that "the children should appreciate and take pride in their sexual orientation."
When he complained to the school, his concerns were dismissed. He was accused of not understanding and being intolerant. He was told that, "its not about sex; it's about civil rights and tolerance."
It was also noted that all area public schools participated in "Gay Appreciation Days" -- a week in which children were further indoctrinated with the concept that the homosexual lifestyle is normal. A pamphlet that was distributed during this week states, "If you've never slept with someone of the same sex, how do you know you wouldn't prefer it?"
In an article entitled, "Homosexual Agenda in Massachusetts's Schools" by Massachusetts Constitutional Party committeeman Scott T. Whiteman, Mas sa chusetts is described as being the model state for promoting the homosexual agenda in the nation's public schools.
According to Whiteman, it all started in 1992 when Massachusetts Governor William Weld created by executive order the "Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth" under the guise of preventing gay youth suicide. The commission was comprised of 16 homosexual activists. Whiteman reported that one commission member, David LaFontaine, had organized an event to throw condoms at newly ordained priests at Holy Cross Cathedral in Boston and that another commission member had been convicted of breaking into a dynamite factory.
From 1993 to 1996, the commission began writing manuals on "Making Schools Safer for Gay and Lesbian Youth," including the mandatory hiring of gay teachers, required seminars for tea chers to learn homosexual affirmation, and the formation of curriculum for the study of gay and lesbian issues.
The Massachusetts state budget has been appropriating money to the commission through the Department of Health and the Department of Education. The money appropriated to the Commission reached a record $1.5 million in 1998.
Massachusetts is currently the most "gay friendly" state in the country with 180 Gay/Straight Alliances (GSAs) in both public and private schools. Through out the country there are over 700 GSA clubs in schools coordinated by national homosexual activist groups and implemented by state departments of public health and education.
On March 25, Whiteman attended an event sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network and Project 10, both of whom receive funding from the Department of Education's $1.5 million appropriation. Numerous gay-friendly teachers and administrators received "professional developmental credits" for attending the event.
In one workshop run by two Depart ment of Education employees one De partment of Health employee, a group of 30 children were given graphic instructions in how to participate in homosexual sex.
In one session entitled, "Struggles & Triumphs of Including Homosexuality in a Middle School Curriculum," a special education teacher told how she turned the holocaust portion of her curriculum into a "gay affirming" section. She shared a video produced by her students in which a seventh grade girl is narrating. The girl on the video tells us that the ancient Greeks "encouraged homosexuals; in fact, it was considered normal for an adolescent boy to have an older, wiser man as his lover."
Most of the literature distributed at the conference was aimed at children and contained incredibly disturbing material which encouraged young children to become actively involved in homosexual activities.
Children as young as 12 and 13 attended this conference, even being bused from other counties so that they could attend the event. Parents who protested were accused of being "intolerant" and "homophobic."* Parents were not told what their children were learning and were pur posely kept in the dark with regard to the subject matter of this conference.

* "Homophobic" is "newspeak" invented by the queer lobby. The word actually means "hatred of man." People who do not like homosexuals do not harbor any animosity toward men.
