As a parent, how would you feel if you found out that your child(ren) was sent to a conference that taught them about homosexual sex by their public school?
That’s what parents in Iowa discovered earlier this year. In April, middle school students were sent to the Iowa Governor’s Conference on LGBTQ Youth. The conference was billed as an anti-bullying conference to promote acceptance of LGBTQ students, however there is no mention of bullying in the title or the stated mission of the conference:
“The mission of the Annual Governors Conference on LGBTQ youth is to a) engage and educate students, and b) encourage networking and activism.”
Afterwards, parents found out that the conference spent more time instructing their middle school kids about homosexual sex rather than anti-bullying. To make matters worse, it was all done with taxpayer dollars. One attendee told The Family Leader:
“There were only two sessions (among the more than 20) that had anything to do with bullying. It’s a conference teaching kids how to: how to be confidently homosexual, how to pleasure their gay partners – one session even taught transsexual girls how to sew fake testicles into their underwear in order to pass themselves off as boys.”
Several teachers and students left the conference early because of what was being taught. One father reported that his daughter was very distraught at what she was exposed to. He told The Family Leader:
“She thought she was attending this conference to learn how students can be supportive of their homosexual peers, how they can bring unity to her school. She went thinking it was going to be on bullying, and she wanted to learn how to be more supportive, inclusive and accepting.”
“When she got there, it wasn’t really on bullying; it was basically a sexual education class for same-sex couples. It was crude. One presenter told students who asked whether anal sex hurt that, as a lesbian, it really depended on how big the device is that their partner straps on.”
“My daughter went to listen to the comedian, Sam Killermann, thinking it would at least be funny, but instead, Killermann explained how pleasurable it is for gay couples to eat each other’s behinds and how to use different flavors of [oils] to make it taste better.
“It’s totally unacceptable, above and beyond anything we should have our children subjected to. It was over the line, especially for a conference supported by prominent Iowa businesses.”
The Family Leader had a representative attend the conference and reported:
“Our observer also reported on the day’s final speaker, a drag performer named Coco Peru, who delivered an expletive-laden presentation filled with song and a startling piece of advice for the hundreds of high school students bused in from around the state.”
“Peru’s performance included a song with the lyrics, ‘People suck. They don’t give a f— about you. People thrive on smashing our pride to the ground. People that suck, f— you.’”
“Toward the end of the performance, Peru told the kids if they see a car with a bumper sticker that reads, ‘It’s Adam and Eve for a purpose,’ they should, ‘Reach down inside yourself and give them a blessing … then slash their tires!’”
“Peru’s performance was clearly a far cry from an ‘anti-bullying’ speech.”
You may be surprised to learn that the conference was sponsored by Principal Financial Group, Nationwide, Office Depot, The TJX Companies Inc. (TJ Max, Marshalls, HomeGoods and Sierra Trading Post), Iowa State Education Association, University of Iowa, Iowa Association of School Boards, School Administrators of Iowa and the Episcopal Dioceses of Iowa.
An LGBT activist group known as Iowa Safe Schools has condemned all of the negative comments made about the conference. They are also claiming that next year’s conference will be even bigger and better than this year’s.
Parents are speaking out against the conference and demanding action be taken. Concerned Citizens has filed a petition with Humboldt School District in Humboldt and Dakota, Iowa to prevent their students from attending future conferences. They claim that the conference is completely inappropriate and a waste of taxpayer money.
Humboldt School Superintendent Greg Darling told the local media that a campus club was raising money so they could attend the conference next spring. He said:
“We support all clubs in the school that meet the policies and procedures. We are an equal opportunity school and do not discriminate against anyone. We strive to have a positive learning environment in the district but we do not support any group of individuals who uses profanity in presentations.”
Darling sounds like a typical public school liberal who will ignore the demands of concerned parents and will most likely allow students to attend next year’s conference.
This is one of many reasons why I can’t advocate homeschooling or private school enough. Parents have an obligation to protect their children from this kind of filth and what God calls abominable. If parents don’t have any other alternative but to send their kids to public school, then it would be their duty to keep their kids home the day of the conference. If the school takes disciplinary actions against the students who don’t attend, then I strongly suggest the parents contact one of many legal organizations such as Liberty Counsel, Christian Law Association or the Rutherford Institute to help them protect their kids from being brainwashed by the hideous monster known as public school.
