LGBT HISTORY REQUIRED TO BE TAUGHT IN ILLINOIS SCHOOLS WITH NEW LAW

Show us how we can pray and act in our own communities, to pray, and to stand for your values, God.
542 People Prayed

The governor of Illinois recently signed a bill that will mandate public schools in the state teach LGBT history, beginning next year. The new legislation will require schools to incorporate “a study of the roles and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people” as part of the American history curriculum.

Illinois governor J.B. Pritzker (D) signed House Bill 246 into law on Friday, which will require schools to incorporate LGBT history in American history courses. The law mandates that all publicly funded schools in Illinois include “the roles and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the history of this country and this State” in official textbooks. [Incidentally, Pritzker’s brother is a transgender, identifying as a woman, and the mega-rich Pritzker family is a huge funder of LGBTQ groups.]

“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,” reads the text of the legislation.

The bill continues:

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. The teaching of history also shall include a study of the role of labor unions and their interaction with government in achieving the goals of a mixed free enterprise system. No pupils shall be graduated from the eighth grade of any public school unless he or she has received such instruction in the history of the United States and gives evidence of having a comprehensive knowledge thereof.

According to the legislation, the state’s Board of Education is now mandated to “annually publish a list of textbooks authorized to be purchased,” and is “authorized to provide annual funding to public school districts and State-recognized, non-public schools serving students in grades kindergarten through 12” for the purchase of the textbooks.

“One of the best ways to overcome intolerance is through education and exposure to different people and viewpoints,” said state senator Heather Steans (D) in a previous statement. “An inclusive curriculum will not only teach an accurate version of history but also promote acceptance of the LGBTQ community.”

“It is my hope that teaching students about the valuable contributions LGBTQ individuals have made throughout history will create a safer environment with fewer incidents of harassment,” added Steans. “LGBTQ children and teenagers will also be able to gain new role models who share life experiences with them.”

The new legislation will take effect next year, on July 1.

  1. we must find a legal strategy to prohibit the govt and scotus to steal tax payer moneyto fund this twisted propaganda being forced on kids and students look at theresults today in society from this twisted propaganda ever since prayer was banned by the scotus in 61 from public schools kids have been onn the decline yet islam is now taught all across the US as a curriculum to kids from grade school on up;;Christ is banned prayer is banned we must get the laws overturned our money should not be taken to fund this teaching of propaganda

  2. Lord, God of the universe, my heart breaks for what is ahead for America’s children. Oh God our Father, please help all educators who are against this immoral teaching to band together and stand against this publicly. May Your people band with them and make their voices heard loud and clear. May those in authority over us take action against the teachers’ union that dictates what is and isn’t to be taught. Father, I have known You since the age of nine and have known Your Word all my life. Therefore I knew this would happen but I really didn’t think it would be in my lifetime. You have allowed me to live beyond my three score and ten years and each day brings more sickening satanic evil to our land and the whole world. Precious God, Faithful and True, please make Your church strong and courageous. Help us to love our enemies and show them where they are wrong in such a Spirit filled way that they will realize the error of their ways and accept right teaching. Open the eyes of all those who are easily swayed and give them Holy Boldness to stand up and say, “NO” to this new law. May there be real backlash from those who are decent and good by human standards. May we all show others what a farce the “politically correct” scheme of the devil really is. Lord, forgive us Your people for buying into such stupidity in the first place. I pray You will expose those who seek to ruin this nation as the evil persons they are and that You will keep Donald Trump in the Whitehouse and help us to help him make America Great again. One nation under God. The one and only true God. In the precious name of Jesusi pray.

  3. Father, America is up to her neck in a cesspool of immorality! What a horrible and ungodly state she is in. Each day brings news of a greater departure from the level of morality that You demand from human beings. There is no hope outside of You. May You continue to exercise patience and pity on our spiritually blind nation and world. Please send a fresh and powerful spiritual awakening to our nation and the world. I pray also for a fresh and powerful revival of the church. May You purge her and wash her, and restore the flame of zeal for Your Word and Your name, in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

  4. We need to pray for the state of Illinois. Pray that they will reverse this bill – it will only confuse the children as to what is real and true and pure. This is a lifestyle that goes against God’s Word. God, please open the eyes of those in power in Illinois, and show them Your way, the ONLY way!

  5. This LGBTQ structure is designed to program the next generation and create confusion both in the young but also in families. Well, I repent and ask forgiveness for those who are caught up in this life style, for governmental officials, teachers, administrators, school board members and parents for promoting the LGBTQ rhetoric, its life style and expecting others to agree with them in Jesus name. God created this next generation and we claim them for Him along with divine protection over each students. Parents, teachers, administrators and school boards arise and take a stand against this structure and I declare they are wise as serpents and gentle as doves in bringing down this structure choosing to love the people but HATE ungodly life styles. Awake LGBTQ and know the truth and be set free for Jesus sake. This structure is coming down!

  6. Illinois is not alone. Sadly in our home State of NJ a similar piece of legislation passed and was signed by our Governor. Our children in public school will be exposed to the same teaching, which I understand was prepared in CA. No doubt other states are considering similar legislation.

    Let us decree now…..the history of the LGBTQ community is NOT welcome in our public schools. We release confusion surrounding the implementation and we, the ecclesia, arise in objection to it. By the blood of Jesus, our authority was re-established to “rule” in the place where He planted us. And so from that place we rule with a loud commanding shout – “NO, not on our watch”!!

  7. I pray that every Christian in Illinois will protest against this law. Especially those who have supported the Democratic party. I pray for either a change in the hearts of the state government or removal of all who voted for this.

    1. Taxpayer money used for CHILD ABUSE/CHILD ENDANGERMENT! Across our nation, all Public Schools, preschool-Univ. must be boycotted! The American Library Assoc. must be closed down —guilty of trafficking children for porn/rape/sodomy/mental illness—drag queen deviants! TAXPAYERS WAKE UP! Save America’s children!

    2. Trust me, we did protest. We fought and prayed for over a year for this to not go through. After it did I wanted to pull my son from public school, but my husband believes we should stick it out. Please pray for us as we are currently forced to live in Sodom.

  8. The deeper we get into sin such as this, we are putting our nation in a position to receive the wrath of God as is recorded in Romans 1:28, “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which should never be done…(29) They are forever inventing new ways of sinning…(32)Who knowing the righteous judgment of God…are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.” Father God, please send a great awakening to us, heal our land, break up the fallow ground in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord! Amen!

    1. Yes I Agree
      I Love The Sinner, Jesus Died for each and every one, but whole heatedly denounce the sins they participate in, we cover them with Mercy & Grace and pray pray pray for Salvation & Intervention of the Truth according to God’s Word 👑🙏💓

  9. Just because a political group has power and money we pray 2Chronicles 14:11. Our schools are not experiments in social change by government officials. Give the material to the parents and they can decide these religious issues.

  10. Father, open the eyes of our nation to see You. You are high and lifted up , O lord. Your name is greatly to be praised. Father we seek You, Your wisdom, your ways. You are the only way, the answer to our nations demise. Father, give us hearts to seek after you. Show us Father how we can stand against this attack. The lives of our children depend on truth.
    We draw near to you Father. God with us. You fight for us,. You go before us and prepare the path. You are our light , our way, our hope . Lord I pray a hedge of protection over the eyes, the ears, the minds of our children.
    Bring forth your mighty hand to open the eyes of those in office to see You and put an end to this teaching.
    Thank you Lord for your unending love. Thank you Lord that are a God who hears and answers ur prayers.
    Thank you Father for your most precious Son, that we can come boldly before you to make our requests known to you. Lord this teaching must end. Nothing is too difficult for you.
    In Jesus ‘s name we pray..

  11. Lord, please confuse the strategy of the demonic realm fueling homosexuality and transgender.
    Make one lie prove another wrong until they kill each other and fall to the ground, in Jesus name. Amen.

  12. This is called indoctrination. I pray for parents and grandparents to rise up and speak out about the true intent of including this in mandated curriculum! Let them be bold in using their voices to speak your truth. Let those who make these decisions become unpopular with voters and thwart the marches and plans to make this become the norm. Lord,hear our prayers.

  13. Father, we know that apart from you man’s heart is dark and wicked. Lord, I lift up our children to you. We know that what the Illinois governor is doing is against You and Your Word, and can only damage and confuse these children. I ask that You put a hedge of protection around these dear ones, that Your Holy Spirit would convict those in leadership of the wrong and the harm that is inherent in these aberrant teachings. It is only by YOUR power and YOUR Spirit that these things will be changed, and we ask that You DO change them, in the powerful Name of Jesus, and through the blood that He shed on Calvary. Amen.

  14. This is so discussing, despicable and diabolical. We the citizens of our country need to repent, pray and ask for forgiveness for allowing this movement to take control. Father forgive us and help us to turn our nation back to you. Help us to rise up and stop the enemy from polluting and destroying the minds and hearts of our children. Lord we cry out for revival of your Holy Spirit to flood our land changing the culture and turning us back to you our Lord and Savior the only true God. Father we ask this in the blessed name of Jesus Christ. Amen!!!

  15. I agree, Father, in Jesus’ mighty Name! Please, block these wicked laws from coming into existence!
    Let God arise! Let His enemies be scattered. Let those that hate Him flee before Him.
    Hear the cries of Your people, ABBA! Forgive our sin. Send a mighty outpouring of Your Spirit. We cry for mercy and grace, revival and total transformation in the state of Illinois and across the nation. May thousands and thousands turn to You for mercy and grace including the wicked “we” have allowed to be placed in office.
    O God, in the wrath we deserve, please have mercy. Remember the cries of those who love You and cry out to You day and night – in Jesus’ Name. Amen!

  16. How can they see and understand what they are doing without your Spirit showing them dear Lord. Please help us! We’re so ashamed before You. Please pour out your mercy and your most Holy Spirit on these people and this nation. Hosanna in the highest!!!!!

  17. This needs to be resisted in court! The Bible teaches much about this in Noah`s time and the history is rich bibically about this matter! You teach history, devil? We teach history! by law!

  18. Can we as Christians pray that this shall NEVER be? If we aren’t allowed to express our views in public schools, why should we allow this kind of propaganda to be spread and thus push their agenda down our throats and our kids.

    1. THIS WILL NOT BE IN THE POWER, NAME AND AUTHORITY OF OUR LORD. PRAY FOR ME AS I SOUND THE RALLYING CRY BY GOING DOOR TO DOOR TO CHURCHES AND IMPLORING CHRISTIAN EDUCATORS AND CHURCHES AND PASTORS TO WAKE UP AND STAND UP!

    1. I also have 2 wonderful grandsons who will be facing this in 3 and 4 years. Their father is a music teacher but I’m sure it will affect even the teaching of music. Lord, have mercy on us!

  19. This is disgusting! They do not allow GOD in the school and they do not teach the most important document in an Americans life (the Constitution). But they want to teach the ways of Satan.
    I am sorry but it is time to remove such persons as governor J.B.Pritzker from office by force if necessary.
