Advocates for Faith & Freedom Joins Other Pro-Family Organizations in Support of Parental Rights Policy
Many of you may have already heard about the outrageous and inappropriate overreach of a kindergarten teacher in Rocklin, California who read a book promoting transgenderism and then presented a classmate who is a biological male, as now a female. This “transition celebration” was done at the Rocklin Academy without any notification to these 5-year-olds’ parents.
After hearing of the troubling effect it had on some of these children, California Research Institute in nearby Sacramento assisted the parents in proposing a parent-friendly policy which was heard at the Rocklin Academy school board meeting on Monday, Sept. 18, 2017.
Advocates for Faith & Freedom, along with other legal and pro-family organizations submitted legal memos and letters to the school board in support of the proposed policy. Advocates for Faith & Freedom offered a pro bono defense to any school that faces a legal challenge as a result of adoption or enforcing the proposed policy.
However, at Monday’s public meeting the board members, which boast the school’s long waiting list for students, stubbornly rejected the parental rights policy, disingenuously claiming it would violate CA law among other insolent reasons.
CRI’s Karen England said “They’ve made it clear that they will not allow parents to opt out under the policy…. I have never, in all of my work over 20 years, run into a school board that is so anti-parent.”
With this troubling LGBTQ-promoting trend in school education policies, along with new international medical guidelines allowing children at younger ages to physically transform their bodies, pro-family organizations like Advocates for Faith & Freedom are uniting in defense of our nations’ children.
In her article entitled The Trans Brigade Is Heartlessly Weaponizing Children And Ignoring The Consequences, Denise Shick, author and Director of Help 4 Families Ministry states, “At first, the LGBTQ craze focused on adults, but adherents have increasingly sought not only to include and recruit kids in their movement, but now to use them as their frontline combatants.”
As ridiculous as it may sound, there is now even a move for children as young as 3 who show signs of gender identity disorder (GID) to begin to “socially transition” by changing their name and wardrobe to match “chosen” gender. Can they be serious?
Dr. Eric Vilain, pediatrician and geneticist who heads the Medical Genetics division at UCLA, disagrees with such early transitioning. “If the children are pushed in this belief it will be much, much harder for them to get out of this belief because everyone will have agreed on it very, very early on,” the doctor says. “What worries me is that, indeed, there might be in the upcoming years a considerable number of these children that are placed on a path that we don’t fully know the outcome.”
In the midst of this absurdity, we ask for your fervent prayers as we unwaveringly continue this fight for the very souls of our nations’ school-children and against this confusing immorality!
“Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.”
