The establishment of a state religion is quickly taking place before your eyes. Forced conversions are rapidly under way, and they are targeting your children.
They are spreading across the nation.
Massachusetts is leading the way in the imposition of this religion, Secular Humanism. The state has already run Catholic Charities out of the business of adoptions. Formerly the largest provider of adoption services in the state, Massachusetts told them that unless they change their religious beliefs to those of Secular Humanism by adopting to same-sex couples, they had to get out of the business.
In other words, Massachusetts put their state religion ahead of the well-being of children, a common trait of this religion that views creation as a disease.
Now the Massachusetts Board of Education is expanding their reach directly into the schools, targeting our kids.
Kids will be taught Secular Humanism’s newly enshrined laws of “gender identity discrimination.” They are telling schools that they must move forward creating a culture “that would make gender-nonconforming and transgender kids “feel safe, supported, and fully included.”
In other words, kids can pick their own gender, whether they have a penis or a vulva. They can use the bathroom they want to use.
No one can stop them.
Kids who don’t feel comfortable going to the bathroom with someone of the opposite gender (according to a traditional scientific definition) will undergo counseling to reorient their thinking and create a more “tolerant” attitude.
The religion of Secular Humanism believes that gender is based on feelings, not biology. If a boy feels like a girl inside, he should live as a girl.
The catechism of Secular Humanism flies in the face of that of the Roman Catholic Church. Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI warned of the dangers when:
“sex is no longer a given element of nature that man has to accept and personally make sense of” but instead is twisted into “a social role we choose for ourselves.”
When this happens, says Benedict, we lose sight of:
“an essential aspect of what being human is all about.” When “people dispute the idea that they have a nature, given by their bodily identity, that serves as a defining element of the human being,” then they deny the truth that “male and female He created them.”
Human dignity is at stake, said the retired Pope:
“When freedom to be creative becomes the freedom to create oneself, then necessarily the Maker himself is denied and ultimately man too is stripped of his dignity as a creature of God.”
Secular Humanism is quickly spreading to other states, as sixteen states have passed laws which prohibit “discrimination” on the basis of gender identity. Even more, the Left is pushing “National Educational Sexuality Standards” which they dub, “the future of sex education.”
What do Catholics, Christians, Muslims, and Jews do who reject the religion being imposed on their kids in public schools? They can either enroll them in private schools, although there is no assurance that the State won’t pressure them to bend to the will of the new state religion.
Or they can home school.
But even home schooling is under attack by the Obama administration who wants to impose national graduation requirements. The Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) is up in arms. Their Director of Federal Relations, Will Estrada, expressed the two threats to home schoolers’ freedom:
“The first one is very simply the Federal government taking on the role of telling the states when students should graduate or when they should stay in school until,” adding that “the more we see Federal involvement telling the states what to do with education policy [the more] it threatens the freedom of all parents, particularly home schoolers to educate their children.”
“But the second and more visceral danger for home schoolers is how it could effect with a definition what is a ‘graduation’.”
“Let’s say they graduate from a home school program at age 17, would that be under the Federal definition graduation from high school?”
You may say that graduation requirements have nothing to do with “gender identity.” You are correct, unless the government begins to impose specific, offensive curriculums on home schoolers. You are correct, unless the government begins imposing other ridiculous standards that home schoolers find offensive.
The Left wants their religion firmly established in every school, every precinct, every state. They want their catechism nailed to the wall of every public institution in the land.
They are systematically accomplishing their goal.
The rate of their success is breathtaking.
