Ruth Institute President Says Teaching LGBT History is Indoctrination, Not Education
Posted on Monday, August 26, 2019
Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., called the growing trend in public schools of teaching LGBT history “the institutionalization
of the Sexual Revolution.”
“For years, activists have sought to use schools to advance their sexualized worldview,” Morse explained. “They are succeeding beyond their wildest
dreams. California, New Jersey, Colorado and now Illinois require exposing children to this ‘instruction.’”
Morse noted an assault on parental rights. “Since most sex education instruction has an opt-out provision, activists have branched out, inserting LGBT
instruction into history, foreign language and even art classes.”
Morse urged parents to be vigilant to stop this indoctrination from spreading. “The mandates for these classes are usually based on a vote of the state
legislature. Often, legislators hear from only one side – the proponents of these radical measures.”
“You might say eternal vigilance is the price of morality,” Morse concluded.
