Do You Know Who is Teaching Your Children?

By | Defense of Family, LBB, News and Events | No Comments

America is changing. Perhaps you have noticed. Our cities, our communities, our schools do not reflect American values, let alone Christian ones. We must begin to pay attention to who is teaching our children if we have ordinarily not paid attention in the past. A series of recent exposures have put an exclamation point to the urgency of this development.

Meet Kristin Pitzen, English teacher at Back Bay High School in Costa Mesa, Orange County, California. Ms. Pitzen proudly posted the video on one of her social media accounts (now deleted), saying this:

“Okay, so during third period, we have announcements, and they do the pledge of allegiance. I always tell my class, ‘Stand if you feel like it; don’t stand if you feel like it. Say the words if you; [sic] don’t have to say the words.’ So, my class decided to stand but not say the words. Totally fine. [Grin] Except for the fact that my room does not have a flag. It used to be there [points toward a wall]. [More grinning] But I took it down during COVID because [whispers] it made me uncomfortable. And, ugh, I packed it away, and I don’t know where [more grinning] and I haven’t found it yet [laugh]. But my kid today goes, ‘Hey, it’s kind of weird that we just stand and, you know, we say it to nothing.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, well, you know [sarcastically] I gotta find it. Like, I’m working on it. I got you.’ [Shaking head mocking the kid that she is deceiving while laughing hysterically] ‘In the meantime,’ I tell this kid, ‘We do have a flag in the class that you can pledge your allegiance to.’ And he, like, looks around and goes, ‘Oh, that one?’ [pointing at a big LGBTTQQIAAP (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, ally, pansexual) flag the teacher is proudly displaying for the class].”

She could not stop laughing…

Get ‘Em While They’re Young

By | Defense of Family, LBB, News and Events | No Comments

The most innocuous category of our useless TV ratings system is TV-Y. According to the parental guidelines, it signifies content that is suitable for preschool children (2-6). This is such a formative, innocent age that even children’s networks have developed a junior version (i.e., Nick Jr., Disney Junior) to target these little ones.

Some popular shows have followed suit, developing toddler versions of their shows, specifically targeted to this age group. For example, Disney Junior has developed “Muppet Babies.” Just one look at the baby versions of the classic characters like Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, and Gonzo puts a smile on your face.

But I hope by now you know that you cannot entrust your children to the culture. I spoke to NTD News recently about San Francisco’s Gay Men’s Chorus coming out publicly with a song proclaiming they want to “convert our children.”

Please note, you cannot trust the TV ratings either. The Muppet Babies’ latest episode introduces your preschooler to the first transgender princess.  Season 3, Episode 19, titled “Gonzo-rella / Summer’s Car Trouble,” just as it sounds, plays on the old story of Cinderella, but now featuring the beloved Gonzo character…

Children on the Brink

By | Defense of Family, LBB, News and Events, Sexual Exploitation | No Comments

In the paragraphs that follow, I attempt the impossible. Few achieve the magical task of putting into words the unspeakable fidgeting of the heart. It is a dangerous business to engage oneself, especially on matters where the cultural meets the spiritual. But it is a necessary work, for it is the work of universal truth—the work of freedom.

Millions feel the truth. But that is not enough. We must know the truth. It is that which sets us free.

The truth we must face today is that our children are being systematically targeted by secular humanists who are enemies of God and His Word. They do not want to “live and let live.” They want your children. They want you isolated. They want to dismantle in your children’s minds all notions of truth, especially those Scriptural truths you have taught to them.

Don’t know how that works? What does the rainbow symbolize for your children?

As they wake up in the morning, they’ll have their Kellogg’s cereal telling them to roleplay, choosing their preferred pronouns. Next, perhaps they want to watch some cartoons in the morning, as we all did growing up, and they have “Blue’s Clues Pride Parade Sing-Along with Drag Star Nina West Celebrating LGBTQ Families.”

There they learn about families that have “two daddies,” “babas [that] are nonbinary,” “trans members,” and even about “ace, bi, and pan grown-ups,” all “allies to the queer community.”

A friend commented she had to look up some of the terms. And guess what, many children will too. They will learn a lot more than what’s on one episode, thanks to that cute blue dog.

But your children don’t watch that; they watch Disney Plus. Or maybe they are older now and just like going to Target or Walmart where they’ll be presented with beautiful displays of LGBTQ+ affirming merchandise and messages, like the asexual or non-binary flag pride t-shirt or the “trans rights are human rights” one.

All these messages being pushed upon our children are guaranteed to have an effect. Our children will “google” these terms and find out more. They will consider them…
