NEA Policies Toady to the Homosexuals

During this year's annual convention of the National Education Association, known as the NEA, the Executive Director John Stocks urged delegates to be "social justice patriots" who stand "with the LGBTQ community against bigotry and for marriage equality." He praised the recent Supreme Court decision that struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (known as DOMA, and bragged that the NEA legal team had submitted a brief to the Supreme Court urging the overturn of our marriage law. Delegates passed a New Business Item that states: "The NEA shall encourage the Obama administration to ensure all legally married people have equal access to federal benefits regardless of their state of residence."

The NEA continues to move the homosexual agenda full speed ahead in public schools. Two new business items adopted by the NEA convention aim to ensure that students are taught about LGBTQ people. New Business Item 21 calls on the NEA to use existing resources, assist state affiliates in urging policymakers to push for legislation similar to California's FAIR Education Act that requires schools to integrate factual information about social movements, current events, and history of LGBTQ people.

The NEA convention passed its usual hundreds of resolutions, many of which are designed to toady to the homosexuals. The homosexual agenda is supported in many NEA resolutions such as B-14, entitled Racism, Sexism, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identification and Discrimination. The text of this resolution calls for acceptance of lesbians, bisexuals and transgender persons, and for purging the curricula and textbooks of stereotyping. The resolution also calls for affirmative action that encourages active recruitment and employment of persons in under-represented categories such as sexual orientation or gender identification. The resolution about Diversity is another resolution that slyly promotes the gay rights agenda.
