The Big Government Takeover of Your Child’s Curriculum

April 9

Today, H.R. 5, the so-called Equality Act—the bill that will manipulate schoolchildren to carry water for the LGBT agenda, whether their parents like it or not—heads to its first hearing in the U.S. House Education Committee.

Tell Congress to Vote NO on H.R. 5!

H.R. 5 is one of Pelosi’s top priorities for this year, and that is deeply concerning. The radical changes to children’s curriculum the bill seeks to make will concern millions of families. But even beyond the specific curriculum changes, it is extremely rare for the federal government to so deeply insert itself in the specifics of children’s curriculum in K-12 schools. This is Big Government at its finest, flexing its muscles to force the LGBT agenda in every classroom in America.

If Pelosi and the LGBT activist groups who fund her campaign succeed in pushing H.R. 5 forward, what will be the practical implications for our children?

For starters, major changes in your child’s curriculum:

  1. The importance and seriousness of the Civil Rights Movement to achieve racial equality in schools will no longer be taught.

H.R. 5 by its very nature is not about achieving equal educational opportunities for all. It’s about forcing every administrator, teacher, child, and parent involved in schools to give any person who identifies as LGBT a platform in our schools, and special rights above and beyond everyone else.

H.R. 5 will change what it means to achieve equal rights for all in America. Our students, who will no longer be able to distinguish between the heroism and sacrifice of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. and the rainbow flag poster of a sexualized political agenda on their school wall, deserve better.

If “equal rights for all” now means ensuring young children are informed that “little boys can become little girls,” then the power of the Civil Rights Movement ends with H.R. 5.


  1. Schools will be required to cover “LGBT sexual experiences” in sexual education.

Colorado and California both already have laws similar to H.R. 5, and those states require teaching “LGBT sexual experiences” in sex ed.

And California sex education guidelines include teaching children about having multiple sexual partners,  and warning children about “religion abuse” that would include “forcing others to adhere to rigid gender roles [or] [n]ot allowing a partner to do things they enjoy.”

As if that weren’t bad enough, California prohibits any teaching that would reflect adversely on the LGBT community.  And Colorado has introduced legislation that refers to traditional perspectives on sexuality as shameful, fear-based, and bigoted.

H.R. 5 would force this type of sexual education curriculum on the entire country—not just states with liberal leadership.


  1. Schools will be required to weave LGBT ideology into every class—not just sex ed.

Sadly, the changes envisioned in H.R. 5 don’t stop at sex education class. The idea is to weave LGBT-centric themes throughout the school’s entire curriculum.

Take, for example, New Jersey’s new “LGBT curriculum” policy. Imagine a literature or history class where students are not just taught the historic contributions of literary giants like Emily Dickinson or former U.S. presidents, but the curriculum also questions the sexual preferences of our historic figures.

One textbook example ponders the fact that President James Buchanan may have been gay because he never married and maintained close male friends. A former American president is reduced to the sort of suspect commentary found in newspaper tabloids and gossip magazines.

What’s worse, parents really would have no opportunity to opt-out their children from exposure to this type of teaching or the topic of gender transition, because it is woven into every aspect of the curriculum.

If H.R. 5 were to pass, parents who object would have no voice in their children’s classrooms, and children’s precious academic time will be consumed by nonsense speculation over what kind of sexual exploits any given historical figure was having.


Please help us ask the Congress to STOP H.R. 5 today!

It will only take one minute through our automatic action center.
