Good news: 65% of Americans haven’t lost their minds. Yet.

See 65% of Americans reject gay-affirmative lessons in elementary school: poll |  Emphasis added:

A recent poll released by Wenzel Strategies and World Net Daily indicates that a large majority of Americans – 65 percent – do not approve of gay-affirmative lessons in grade schools.

The poll was conducted for World Net Daily by the public-opinion and media consulting company Wenzel Strategies.  The telephone survey conducted April 19-21 asked the question: “Do you believe elementary school children should be taught that homosexuality is a normal alternative lifestyle?”

Only 22 percent of respondents said they believe such teaching would be right, while another 13 percent said they were unsure.  The vast majority – 65 percent – said they do not approve of such teaching.

“Whether they object on moral grounds or simply out of concern that many U.S. schools are failing in their core missions of teaching basics doesn’t really matter – the vast majority of American adults want this type of curriculum kept out of the classroom,” Wenzel chief Fritz Wenzel said.

“Americans are particularly averse to the introduction of gay issues into the curriculum of the nation’s elementary schools,” Wenzel said. “Even among Democrats, who have been much more sympathetic to the promotion of gay issues, just 32 percent said they believe this should be taught to elementary school students. Just 11 percent of Republicans and 25 percent of political independents said the same thing.”

. . .

To the question, “Should students be taught how to perform gay sex acts as part of ‘safe sex’ lessons in school?” more than 73 percent of respondents said no.

This isn’t some made-up issue, by the way.  It is the logical consequence of making civil rights out of sexual preferences.

The issue of pro-homosexual teaching in schools has had renewed debate recently in California with a bill that would mandate such teaching in the curriculum.

Many have also noted the renewed vigor with which gay issues are being promoted in schools following the appointment by President Barack Obama of well-known gay rights activist and founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), Kevin Jennings, as assistant deputy secretary of the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools.

. . .

“Teaching children sexual techniques is simply not appropriate. Unfortunately, it is part of a consistent pattern by some homosexual activists to promote underage homosexuality while pretending that their mission is simply to promote tolerance for so-called alternative lifestyles,” the newspaper said.

“It is outrageous that someone involved in this scandal is being paid by the taxpayers to serve in a high-powered position at the Education Department, of all places. At some point, [Education Secretary Arne] Duncan, Mr. Jennings, Obama administration spokesmen and the president himself are going to have to start answering questions about all this. Refusing to do so won’t make the issue go away.”

  1. They must force this stuff in elementary school to reach their goals of homosexualizing American. All part of the agenda:

    From “The Overhauling of Straight America” (Guide Magazine, November 1987), by Marshall Kirk and Erastes Pill

    “The first order of business is desensitization of the American public concerning gays… To desensitize the public is to help it view homosexuality with indifference instead of with keen emotion. Ideally, we would have straights register differences in sexual preference the way they register different tastes for ice cream… ” p.7

    “Talk about gays and gayness as loudly and as often as possible…almost any behavior begins to look normal if you are exposed to enough of it. ” p.7


  2. I have less of a problem with these things happening in high school, but have HUGE problems with any of this happening before then. Middle school “life sciences” curricula sometimes discuss human reproduction – fine. Teach the kids the parts of the body, just as you teach them about lungs, and then leave it at that. But there is no reason on this green Earth why a seven-year-old needs to think about sexual orientation in school. School!

    Let’s teach them math and science, as well as how to write, so that the Chinese and Japanese can stop eating our lunch on the global market, and leave the indoctrination to Hollywood. Sheesh.


  3. Neil,

    One thing I always look for when presented with poll results is the total number polled. I am not big on polls as I think they do not truly reflect the overall attitudes of the nation regardless of what some insist about the capabilities of scientific data collection. Some that show overwhelming majorities, as this one does, are encouraging (that is, if the result aligns with my beliefs), but if the total number of people polled are, say, only 100, then 99% is an unreliable reflection of overall sentiment.

    Conversely, if the total number is, say, 100 million people polled, 65% really begins to mean something.

    Long story short, though I am pleased with the result of this poll, and would be more pleased if the percentage opposed to pro-homosex propaganda was much higher, without knowing the total number polled, it means nothing. I could not find that number. Do you have it?


  4. Marshall’s point is a good one.

    However, whatever the poll size, more than 20% of the sample group have either lost their minds or been indoctrinated.
