LGBT history must now be taught in Illinois public schools, according to a recently passed law.
Governor J.B. Pritzker signed the legislation on Friday, requiring public schools in the Midwestern state to teach students about the historical contributions of LBGT persons in U.S. history.
Supporters of the law insist the curriculum will curb bullying against students who identify as LGBT. The law also requires that the state Board of Education must provide a list of textbooks authorized for purchase under the law every year.
Our children need prayer, as the schools have become the proving ground for experiments in radical sexuality.

The legislation reads: “Each public school district and state-recognized, non-public school shall, subject to appropriations for that purpose, receive a per-pupil grant for the purchase of secular and non-discriminatory textbooks.
“In public schools only, the teaching of history shall include a study of the roles and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the history of this country and this State.” . . .
Terry Schilling, executive director of the American Principles Project, a Washington, D.C. area nonprofit whose stated mission it is to re-establish human dignity as the basis for American society, believes LGBT activists are implementing something much more sinister under the banner of teaching history while schools are largely failing students.
“I can’t think of anything weirder than being obsessed with teaching young children about sexuality. Even most parents struggle with this topic because of its difficulty, but somehow we as parents are OK with a complete stranger teaching them,” Schilling said in an email to The Christian Post Monday.
“Parents need to reclaim their role as the primary educators of their children — especially as it pertains to their children’s sexuality. No one else has that right or responsibility.” (Excerpt from Christian Post.)
(Editor’s note: Last year we reported on a school in England where more than 600 Muslim children stayed home as a means of parents protesting this kind of “inclusive” instruction. One of the leaders, a Muslim mom, made this point as well–children cannot handle all the talk about sexuality and relationships. It is not age-appropriate and it is having consequences. This is the kind of common sense talking point to bring to your school board meetings and state legislatures.)
