ANALYSIS/OPINION:

This week “A Message from the Gay Community” was posted on YouTube. It was delivered in song by the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus.  

Here’s a smattering of the lyrics.


“You think we’re sinful. 
You think that we’ll corrupt your kids, 
if our agenda goes unchecked. 
Funny just this once, 
you’re correct.  

We’ll convert your children.  
It happens bit by bit.  
Quietly and subtly, 
and you will barely notice it.  

Just like you worried, 
we’ll change their group of friends.
You won’t approve of where they go at night. 

You’ll be disgusted,
when they start finding things online,
that you kept far from their sight. 

We’ll convert your children.
Yes, we will! 
There’s really no escaping it.

We’ll convert your children.
We’re coming for them!
We’re coming for your children!
We’re coming for your children! 

Soon, we’re almost certain,
your kids will start converting you.  

We’ll convert your children,
and then we’ll turn to you!”

While this little ditty is playing in your head, consider some additional news. 

The Chicago Public School District announced this week that it would immediately start providing prophylactics to fifth graders throughout the city’s school system. “[We] want to make condoms available to students… when they think they need them…” said Kenneth Fox, who is the Chicago Public Schools’ chief health officer. “When you don’t… make those resources available, then bad stuff happens…”

At the same time, the Belmont Public School District in Boston, Massachusetts, released its summer reading list for students as young as kindergarten. Added now to its oh-so-woke-and-wise sex education are books on how “whiteness gets your soul” and causes you to “mess endlessly with the lives of your friends, neighbors, loved ones, and all fellow humans of color.”  

And in Arizona, the Department of Education made headlines for its recommended readings on “equity,” which now include “research” papers on how white babies as young as three months old already harbor racial and sexual biases that demand the state’s intervention. 

And we dare not forget the winner of this month’s race to Gomorrah is New York City’s Justine Ang Fonte, who proudly boasted to the media of teaching masturbation to first graders at Manhattan’s prestigious Dalton School and “porn literacy” to juniors at neighboring Columbia Grammar and Prep.   

Now you might be tempted to think all the aforementioned brilliance only resides in the crazy lands of Lori Lightfoot and Gavin Newsom. But such hopefulness would be sorely misplaced.  

Unfortunately, when it comes to education, “what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas” but rather spreads across the entire nation faster than Covid in an Andrew Cuomo nursing home.  

Consider this … 

All this child predation happened at the same time the National Education Association (NEA) was holding its annual Representative Assembly, where delegates from across the United States came together to officially proclaim their educational priorities for our culture and your kids. 

While Chicago was handing out condoms to 10-year-olds and New York was extolling the wonders of “porn literacy” to a bunch of teenage boys, what did this organization that represents nearly 3 million educators from the cornfields of our heartland to the corner of Haight and Ashbury decide should be the primary concern of our nation’s schools? They voted to “increase the implementation of critical race theory” in K-12 curricula and also to coordinate overt campaigns to intimidate and silence all parents who oppose their debased propaganda.  

And just to make sure there is no confusion as to what they mean by the “implementation of critical race theory,” the NAE offers the following: “[We] resolve to develop a study to critique patriarchy, cis heteropatriarchy, capitalism, ableism, [and] anthropocentrism.” In other words, they are telling you right up front that they will be teaching your kids that two-parent families, strong and responsible fathers, self-reliance, free enterprise, personal responsibility, traditional morality, and heterosexual fidelity are all products of white privilege that should be dismantled and replaced through a neo-Marxist revolution. 

Maybe it’s time to start believing what they say. Maybe when they straight up tell you that, “We’ll convert your children,” you should trust that they mean it.  

“But if anyone causes one of these little ones… to stumble, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world for the causes of sin. These stumbling blocks must come, but woe to the man through whom they come.” Jesus.
