Activists Push for Expanded Anti-Bullying Bill in New YorkFrom the NYC Dept. of Education:
The New York City Department of Education is expanding its "Respect for All" anti-bullying program.
The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network and the New York Civil Liberties Union are lobbying school officials to include a homosexual agenda in the program, according to family experts.
Randy Thomas, vice president of Exodus International, said that parents need to be aware that similar organizations may be trying to promote homosexuality in their schools.
"What gay activists are trying to do is take a legitimate problem, which bullying is, and turn it into an opportunity to spread gay ideology," Thomas said.
Second Phase of ‘Respect for All’ Initiative Expands Trainings for School Staff, Creates New Accountability StandardsHypocrisy aside, to use Mr. Thomas’ words:
Last year, the Department of Education added mandated reporting and investigation guidelines to its anti-bias “Respect for All” initiative, making New York City a national leader in efforts to combat bullying and harassment based on ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, and other factors.
"What anti-gay hate activists are trying to do is take a legitimate problem, which bullying is, and turn it into an opportunity to spread anti-gay hate ideology."
