I refuse to give up. I reject the notion that post-modern lies are impenetrable by eternal truth. I resist the temptation to draw back as an alienated imbittered cultural observer and allow the inevitable to cripple society. Despite the challenging times biblical Christians are experiencing, we must not lose heart.

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.
Romans 15:4

The Apostle Paul was writing to believers facing intense persecution by the hands of Imperial Rome. Pax Romana (i.e. roman peace) was based on Greek logic, human conscience, and their gods of power. It was not based on objective moral truth as revealed by the Creator. In the eyes of Rome, monotheism was a simplistic concept practiced by the unassimilated Jewish people. Their commitment to their temple God in Jerusalem was tolerated by the emperors but converted gentile Christians were required to adhere to the polytheistic religious views of Roman tradition or face legal repercussions. Yet, this oppressed religious minority of faithful Christ followers had hope! As those believers in the first century, we also must lean on the historic truths that were recorded for our encouragement.

The recent ruling by the Supreme Court to redefine the word “sex” to include sexual desires and subjective non-binary identities is an assault on the Constitution. The courts can not legislate from the bench. Their limited power can only rule if a current law is unconstitutional and must be readdressed by the Legislative branch – Congress. Monday’s decision did not send the 1964 Civil Rights Act back for further debate and congressional deliberation. It simply changed the meaning of the word “sex” as the Supreme Court changed the meaning of the word “marriage” in 2015.

This is the post-modern view of reality – a world where words have no clear objective meaning.

As significant as this is for the nation, New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination already included sexual orientation in 1991 and gender identity in 2006 as protected classes of employment. The aftermath of the Supreme Court’s ruling is unknown but troublesome. Religious organizations, such as churches, are protected by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993. Unfortunately, religious employers – people of devout faith who own private businesses – are not. Sadly, there are extreme voices on the Left, such as Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney D- N.Y., who claims “religious liberty is as a bogus term for discrimination.”

This is why our work at Family Policy Alliance of New Jersey® is so important to you, your family and your church. We are committed to advocating for public policies that protect life, religious liberty and parental rights in education; in addition to identifying and electing legislators who will uphold your values in the legislative chambers in Trenton.  Would you consider a gift this week to strengthen our efforts?

This week’s GSE lesson reveal is on “Access Points to Third Graders”

GSE Curriculum Revealed: Access Points to Third Graders

THE LESSON: Lesson Matrix for Further Development of Final Curriculum

GSE specifically targets 8-year-old children with LGBT themed mornings, 9-year-old children with political sexual beliefs and 11-year-old children with transgender literature reading assignments

1) GSE lesson matrix has listed activities in 3rd and 4th grade. This includes “Inclusive Morning Meetings: strategies for Greeting, Sharing, and Group Activities.4th grade Physical Education lessons include “Dancing to be Free:  (LGTB) Black Dancers of the 20th century.” 6th grade Literature assignments include reading the biographical information on “Babs Siperstein” – the first transgender political activist in NJ .

2) GSE curriculum writers specifically emphasize in their comments the lessons must be structured to be “intersectional.” Intersectionality is a political theory that places value on being oppressed. This is the basis of identity politics. This lesson leverages historic injustices towards African Americans as a cover to claim victimhood and oppression by those who identify as gay, lesbian, transgender or other.

3) The state mandated LGBT curriculum law requires the teaching of “contributions” of LGBT identifying individuals in middle school and above. Third and Fourth grade are considered elementary level grades.

 

THE PROBLEM: Sexual Propaganda Pushed in Elementary School

First Problem: GSE has plans to “meet and greet” students with transgender activists or other LGBT speakers in classroom group meetings to push their agenda to younger more vulnerable ages. GSE lesson developers (above in red circle) specifically state “I don’t teach elementary school and I have never run a morning meeting,­­ but I think these strategies [the morning meet and greet will provide more] access points”. Our young children are nothing more than access points for Garden State Equality to promote their ethical and sexual belief systems.

Second Problem: Studies show that 80-95% of children suffering from confusion about their gender identity, that do not receive medical intervention outgrow these feelings by the time they reach adulthood. Yet, 100% of children who receive medical intervention will have gender identity disorders persist into adulthood. Tragically, after sex reassignment surgery, people are 20x’s more likely to die from suicide. GSE’s curriculum teaches students it is good and healthy to ask themselves if their “gender identity” matches their “biological sex” in spite of all medical evidence to the contrary.

 

THE HARM: Indoctrinates our children

These non-educational meet and greets indoctrinate our children forcing them to “rethink” their understanding of the biological differences of male and female. GSE’s curriculum teaches the very real concepts of male and female are simply arbitrary and have no basis in anatomy or genetics—the exact opposite of what is true! In their eyes, the historic, global and scientific view of human sexuality is ignorant and bigoted—and this is taught to our children.

Worldview: GSE’S curriculum instructs students to adopt a postmodern worldview of human sexuality and gender identity. Postmodernists question the fundamental meaning of words like “boy” and “girl”.

This week’s GSE lesson reveal is on “The Spanish Language is Discriminatory

GSE Curriculum Revealed: The Spanish Language Is Discriminatory


Click on images above to download a printable version of this week’s resource.

THE LESSON: “Lesson 1 Spanish Level one (Novice)- Inclusive Language” Proposed for 8th grade and up

This lesson uses Spanish language classes to teach Spanish is a discriminatory language.

This lesson declares, “Spanish is a language that functions in a binary way,” and is unlike English which has “adopted gender neutral terms.” It’s true all nouns in Spanish are classified as “male” or “female” nouns. Other languages like German and French also have “lexical genders”. The GSE curriculum is teaching our children that the Spanish language itself is inherently discriminatory and non-inclusive because it only recognizes two “genders”!

 

THE PROBLEM: Working to Dismantle World Languages

First Problem:The “lexical gender” in languages do not reflect how sex and gender work in the real-world. .

Second Problem: This lesson doesn’t attempt at all to include the contributions of Spanish-speaking LGBT identifying persons, which is all the new law requires. GSE has already admitted they want to teach students to become activists to “dismantle” all things that “oppose” their worldview.  It is clear this is the goal with the proposed Spanish lesson. Garden State Equality uses this lesson to teach the Spanish language itself is oppressive to LGBT people. It forces our students to take up the gauntlet for GSE’s absurd cause by teaching them to subtly change the Spanish language. Here is a link to a video GSE shares as a resource for teachers explaining “why” Spanish must change to become more “inclusive.”

 

THE HARM: Indoctrinates our children

This so-called Spanish lesson indoctrinates our children into believing the English language is neutral and inclusive, unlike Spanish (as long as the English language is not enforcing gender “stereotypes” like using gender-based pronouns such as “he” and “she”). This lesson explicitly teaches our students “right” language is language that conforms to their ideology. This ideology includes ideas that one can change their sex (from male to female or vice versa) and that all sexual orientations are acceptable and healthy. Binary-gender-based languages, like Spanish, according to GSE are morally inferior and must be changed to affirm and encourage the truth of their radical ideas.

Worldview: This instructs students to adopt a post-modern worldview by deconstructing words and their meanings to invent new words and relative definitions in order to construct a different reality.

GSE Curriculum Revealed: Transgenderism


Click on images to download a printable version of this week’s resource.

THE LESSON: Understanding Patriarchy and its Role in Colonial American Social, Political, And Economic Institutions – Grade Level: 8

This lesson teaches sex-based distinctions are oppressive

1) GSE teaches the belief “Power, opportunity, access, and representation” is “shared equally” in our society is a myth. Teaches “intersectionality” which is a modern political idea requiring students to “revise” their thinking that all men are created equal. Intersectionality is a political theory that places value on being oppressed –the greater number of offenses your group has “suffered”, the more virtuous you are. This also means less oppressed groups have less moral authority.

2) The stated purpose of the lesson is to deconstruct the patriarchy, according to GSE, that is “a social structural phenomenon in which males have the privilege of dominance over females.” They accuse straight males of dominating and oppressing females and males that want to be female.

 

THE PROBLEM: Working to Dismantle Social Norms of Male and Female

First Problem: GSE’s lesson states, “long-standing social structures”, like “the patriarchy” or the reality of “male” and “female” are oppressive and must be dismantled. These lessons encourage students to discuss how these structures “prevented the growth of personal freedom” and “human dignity”. In addition to teaching radical ideology as truth, this particular ideology can be traced to Karl Marx –the father of communism. Marx taught structures that drive society are built like a pyramid. According to GSE, straight men are at the top of the pyramid “hoarding power”.

Second Problem: Post-modernist emphasis on group identity minimizes the experience and the uniqueness of each individual. Identity politics produces division because it teaches our students their classmates (and all of society) is divided into oppressors v. oppressed; powerful v. weak; privileged v. victims. GSE’s lessons are not about finding solutions to genuine wrongs. Their lessons are a tool for cultural Marxism and encourage self-identified oppressed groups to rise-up to the top of the so-called pyramid, while oppressing others with their new powerful and moral voice.

 

THE HARM: Indoctrinates our children

As Christians, we believe men and women are created equal with unique differences. God’s purpose in our sexuality is for a male and female to be partners together in marriage to build a strong family which helps society flourish. In addition, fathers in a family have a biblical responsibility to lead well. This belief, rooted in creation and the Fatherhood of God, is now presented to our children as bigoted and oppressive.

Worldview: This GSE lesson instructs students to adopt a postmodern worldview that believes the hierarchy or the power to rule is more important than anything. Facts, truth, or reality should not stand in the way.

THE LESSON: Presentation of Transgenderism and Gender Identity to Parents

These slides present a subjective view of sexual ethics and gender identities

1) GSE’s FAQ’s teach against millennia of human knowledge — that sex presents itself as male and female — is a social falsehood that oppresses everyone who disagrees. This “gender ideology” actually forces already vulnerable students to question their own identities which causes great unnecessary confusion and distress for students who already struggle with anxiety or confusion about their bodies or sense of self.

2) GSE’s FAQ’s teach “gender identity” is how one feels about their sex, even if that is opposite to their biology. They also teach “gender expression” is based on “appearance, behavior, or mannerisms.” According to GSE one’s sex, gender identity, and gender expression might all be different. These lessons would force a boy student, for example, who has interests in traditionally “feminine” things, to reconsider his “gender identity” and “expression”. These radical social ideas are unscientific beliefs about human sexuality and should not be forced into the public-school classroom. GSE regards any dissension or disagreement as discriminatory and oppressive. Here is a link to a video GSE shares as a resource for teachers to help explain gender identity to students.

 

THE PROBLEM: Disregard of science and documented health risks

First Problem: Studies show that 80-95% of children suffering from confusion about their gender identity, that do not receive medical intervention outgrow these feelings by the time they reach adulthood. Yet, 100% of children who receive medical intervention will have gender identity disorders persist into adulthood. Tragically, after sex reassignment surgery, people are 20x’s more likely to die from suicide. GSE’s curriculum teaches students it is good and healthy to ask themselves if their “gender identity” matches their “biological sex” in spite of all medical evidence to the contrary.

Second Problem: GSE’s dangerous agenda persuasively convinces children to deny objective reality in exchange for a falsehood. The lesson teaches and encourages all children to question biological reality and consider whether they are living life as their true selves. The view that people can choose their “gender” is wildly controversial and has no basis in science. Radical social ideology should not be in our classrooms.

 

THE HARM: Indoctrinates our children

This so-called inclusive view of gender identity indoctrinates our children forcing them to “rethink” their understanding of the biological differences of male and female. GSE’s curriculum teaches the very real concepts of male and female is arbitrary and has no basis in anatomy or genetics—the exact opposite of what is true! In their eyes, the historic, global, and scientific view of human sexuality is ignorant and bigoted and this is taught to our children. GSE’s curriculum demands students become allies, if not activists, to promote a new sexual ethic despite their prior beliefs.

Worldview: GSE’S curriculum instructs students to adopt a postmodern worldview of human sexuality and gender identity. Postmodernists question the fundamental meaning of words like “boy” and “girl” and the role of language in how our children think. GSE’s curriculum is thoroughly postmodernist and tells our students they must break down the relationship between a word and its meaning, in order to understand the world. This is senseless. For example, if you claim a boy is not a boy what truth have you left our students with? None. For postmodernists objective truth does not exist and feelings, not facts, determine personal reality and truth.

Dear Friends,

The NJ Department of Education is drafting the Student Learning Standards to be implemented in the 2020-2021 school year. Several subjects currently under review include Comprehensive Health and Physical Education (CHPE), Visual and Performing Arts (VPA), Science, Social Studies, and World Languages.

Garden State Equality’s lesson plans inject LGBT curriculum into all these subjects! However, school districts are not required to use their indoctrination program.

Garden State Equality, a political LGBT lobbying group, pressured legislators to pass the law, launched a Pilot Program that 200 schools showed interest in, was scheduled to host the LGBTQ-Inclusive Curriculum Conference at Monmouth University in May, and has been working with the Department of Education to help write the guidelines for school districts to follow.

But now it’s your turn to speak!

The NJDOE values input from parents and educators on the development of these learning standards. The deadline to submit your views is Monday, March 30. You can easily share your thoughts with the NJ Department of Education by using our Action Center.

The radical left’s sexual indoctrination should not be forced upon our children!

If you’re not on Twitter, you’ve not only made some better life choices than me, you might have missed a ridiculous little video from rapidly-rising-in-the-polls presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg.

In the video, Bloomberg, who is making an all-out appeal to LGBTQ voters, asks for ice cream, takes a bite, and nonsensically says “Mmmmm… big gay ice cream is the best.”

After taking a moment to ponder the absurdity of Bloomberg’s declaration of his ice cream’s homosexuality, I quickly began to pray for victory for President Trump.

You see, Michael Bloomberg is running as a moderate/centrist in the Democratic primary field… and yet he feels the need to pander to the radical LGBTQ ideology in such an absurd way. Throughout their race for the nomination, the Democrat presidential candidates have tripped over themselves in a race to the radical Left – supporting radical abortion policies like what we’ve seen in Virginia, denying biology, upending the Constitution, and more.

The alternatives to President Trump are painfully liberal and woefully radical. They don’t value life, truth, or common sense. And, they’ve pledged allegiance to Planned Parenthood and the radical LGBTQ community while holding our nation’s values and history in contempt.

Contrast this lurch to the Left with our current president. I’ll admit, I was late to the party to support President Trump, and I still have reservations about his character and core. Yet, it is impossible to deny that Donald J. Trump – the first ever Commander in Chief to speak at the March for Life – has done more for the pro-life movement than any POTUS ever has.

It’s also impossible to deny that President Trump is bringing healing and constitutional respect to a broken judicial system, that he’s been intentional about a nation where life is cherished and families thrive, and he’s advanced the cause of religious freedom – reversing eight years of First Amendment suppression.

This is why – even as this sham of an impeachment plays out in DC – Christian unity in politics should persist with support of an imperfect president who has nonetheless been used in a powerful way.

As we enter this election cycle, we are leading the largest ever pro-family, Georgia-grown campaign our state has ever seen. Every endorsement we make will be built upon the idea of continuing the momentum we’re seeing in Georgia and around the nation and rejecting the radical, non-sensical ideology we hear from leftists like Bloomberg, Warren, Sanders, and Biden.

And, that’s why it starts with encouraging support for and unity behind President Trump. It doesn’t mean we should be unwilling to criticize or call for better, but it does mean we should call on our Christian brothers to stand with an agenda that is aligned with ours.

The opportunities before us are real. Georgia will play a major role in the race for the White House, the largest role in battle for control of the Senate, and we have an opportunity to dramatically improve the outlook of our congressional delegation. Of primary focus to us, we also have every state legislative seat on the ballot in 2020.

Can you help us stand firm and take action? Partnering with us with a generous gift of $50, $100, $250, or more – whatever the Lord has called you to do – can make a major difference in unifying Christians behind a common, biblical agenda. Prayerfully consider standing with us today.

Radical liberals are running for the White House, Congress, and our state legislature under the promise to do and say anything to appease a socialist and radical base. Should they control these institutions, the nation and state we love will be fundamentally changed. Let’s stand against crazy politicians who say things like “Mmmmm… big gay ice cream is the best,” and work to deliver the most Christ-centered electorate standing in unity behind a God-honoring agenda.

To Victory,

Dear Friends,

Your voice is needed to protect New Jersey children today!

Impressionable students – our children and grandchildren – are about to be forced to endure radical LGBT sexual indoctrination in the classroom. That’s after state lawmakers ignored the comments of their constituents and instead bowed to the pressure of powerful lobbying groups.

Beginning in the 2020-2021 school year, a new mandated curriculum will require textbook authors to speculate about the sexual preferences and gender identity of noteworthy historical figures – and then impose this false narrative on our children in public schools. The radical left’s endless obsession with sexuality should not be forced upon our children!

Your voice is needed to speak out for parental rights amid these changes.

The sexual indoctrination of our children must end.

Parents should know that the scope of these changes affects every subject in school, and it takes away their right to opt their children out of the questionable instruction. In many ways, this instruction will directly challenge Biblical teaching on homosexuality and what parents choose to teach children at home.

Dear Friends,

My wife and I recently celebrated the birth of our first child. I may win the championship title for PROUDEST DAD—our little girl has already stolen my heart. I’m sure you know the feeling if you have children.

Even though it’s years away, I look forward spending my weekend days in folding chairs and on bleachers, watching my little girl learn to swing a bat at tee-ball and chase the checkered soccer ball around the field. Maybe she will even find a sport for which she exudes passion and decides to play in high school or college.

This week at the Supreme Court, oral arguments were given in a case (Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC) that could have disastrous implications for girls sports everywhere.

The specifics of the case deal with a transgender funeral home employee that filed a complaint with the EEOC after he was fired for violating company dress policy by dressing like a woman at funerals and meetings with grieving clients.

The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the funeral home director, redefining “sex” (a protected class under federal law) to include “gender identity.” If this redefinition is affirmed by the Supreme Court, unequal treatment on the basis of a person’s gender identity will now be prohibited under federal law, unmooring the concept of “sex” from any objective biological basis.

So how does this relate to girls’ sports? Under this scientifically indefensible interpretation of “sex” and “gender,” any effort to prevent biological boys from performing in girls’ sports would constitute legally prohibited “discrimination.”

Ask any student athlete, high school coach, or parent—allowing biological men to perform in girls’ sports unfairly puts biological girls at a competitive disadvantage. The size, strength, bone structure, lung volume, and heart supply of the average male far outpaces even the most elite female athletes, even after the biological male undergoes hormone therapy.

Allowing biological boys to participate in girls’ sports deprives our girls of opportunities for slots on teams, victories, and scholarships. Biological boys are already beginning to win athletic championships in many states. Here in Idaho, a biological male can play in girls’ high school sports after undergoing hormone treatment for one year.

Family Policy Alliance of Idaho® calls on the state legislature to fix the loophole allowing boys to play in girls’ sports. Legislation protecting fairness in sports would save girls’ sports for my daughter and yours.

Until then, we will keep monitoring the Harris Funeral Homes case playing out in the Supreme Court. Please be praying for a positive outcome to this case.

Standing for your family,

Friends,

Boise State University’s “diversity, equality, and inclusion” initiatives have generated lots of news recently. One such initiative, “Rainbow Graduation,” offered a special graduation event and ceremony just for LGBT students. The ceremony was emceed by a “transqueen” who had previously competed in Boise’s Next Drag Superstar. Rainbow honor cords and “ally” pins were distributed to students who attended.

As Idahoans, we desire to see all people treated with dignity. As taxpayers, we want all students at Boise State University to receive a quality education.

Diversity and inclusion events at BSU are a distraction from these goals. These initiatives are offensive to our shared values and a waste of limited school resources.

Sadly, the problem isn’t limited to just one graduation event. Other diversity and inclusion programs include interactive workshops and movie screenings that foster an environment of prejudice toward students holding Christians beliefs.

Let Boise State University President Marlene Tromp know you think their radical social agenda is divisive and a distraction from providing a quality education to all students.

You can send a message to President Tromp in our Action Center – it only takes a few seconds. And please pass this along to others so they can make their voices heard, too!

Sincerely,

Blaine Conzatti
Director of Advocacy
