How children were taught used to be a parental choice.
They’d choose a school they liked, and send their kids there.
But now left-wing lunatics are interfering with that parental responsibility.
Instead, they want to force your children to believe what they believe in.
Parents, teachers, and officials in Albemarle County, Virginia, are circulating a radical petition calling for the board of Albemarle County Public Schools (ACPS) to bar parents from opting their children out of courses promoting Critical Race Theory (CRT) and gender theory, arguing that allowing such an option would be at the “exclusion to families of color and to LGBTQIA+ students and families.”Breitbart News
Your children are your responsibility, and answer first and foremost to you.
That’s pretty obvious, but the Left don’t care about that.
The family unit is an obstacle that gets in the way of them shaping your children’s minds.
And this petition isn’t a fringe one, either.
It’s building momentum.
Activists in the County are circulating a petition — which has, as of the time of writing, obtained more than 350 signatures, at least 47 of which are from ACPS teachers and administrators including Costa — in which they seek to force radical curricula on children whose parents have not consented.Breitbart News
Apparently, your religious beliefs don’t matter either.
The petition further states that “To permit parents to opt out on the basis of religious beliefs that deny the existence of transgender and non-binary individuals would be a violation of the 2020 Virginia Values Act, which prevents discrimination against LGBTQIA+ individuals.”Breitbart News
Since when does a school get to tell you that your faith doesn’t matter, and that your status as a parent doesn’t matter either?
This is liberal arrogance, pure and simple.
Conservative Christians are the real oppressed group in America, because influential liberals ridicule, slander, and attack them every day.
Religious, racial, and sexual minorities have dozens of advocacy groups ready to help them at a moment’s notice, as well as the full weight of the federal government.
Going back to the petition, it even suggests that parents could be ignored and cut out if a student chooses a new name for themselves.
In the situation when parents or guardians of a minor student (under 18 years of age) do not agree with the student’s request to adopt a new name and pronouns, school divisions will need to determine whether to respect the student’s request, abide by the parent’s wishes to continue using the student’s legal name and sex assigned at birth, or develop an alternative that respects both the student and the parents.Breitbart News
This is not just crazy, this is dangerous.
It’s getting to the point where sending your kids to school is like sending them into the belly of the beast.
The petition assumes children have the maturity to rename themselves, but not to choose a faith.
One student told Breitbart News that “they asked if we liked the religion our parents chose for us,” and another concerned parent … said that “Questions are posed to question if they were truly born into the gender that their parents say they are? Do you want to change but are afraid? The question has also been posed if you have the same beliefs your parents have or are your beliefs different?” (Emphasis added).Breitbart News
Again, schools are meant to complement parental influence, not subvert and deny it.
But it’s clear that this school in particular, and the staff that run it, have become unhinged.
Here’s what an article in the school newspaper said.
Despite this, it is apparent that gender theory has already taken hold in Albemarle County, as one article in Henley’s school newspaper states, “Sometimes, people are born into a body that they don’t belong in. Whether they are born into a female body, but are actually a boy, or they are born a boy, but don’t feel that they fit with either binary gender, they are all very real and valid.”Breitbart News
Born into a body that they don’t belong in…
That’s not even biologically possible.
You were gifted your body at conception, along with your soul.
Just because you feel differently doesn’t make your feelings the facts.
And even if it was possible, this school is totally out-of-line to promote it to young children.
Any conservative parents connected to this school should remove their children immediately, to keep their minds and bodies safe.
