Freshmen at Deerfield High School in Illinois were forced to attend a Christian seminar where they were taught fundamentals of the Christian Gospel. Organizers of the event said that the seminar was designed to help the students understand their own religiousity and that it would foster mutual understanding and resepect between members of different faiths.
Some parents saw this as nothing short of evangelism on school grounds and noted that the Freshmen were asked to sign a confidentiality agreement not to discuss the contents of the seminar with their parents. The ACLU is reportedly looking into the case.
Can you believe that? Well, you shouldn’t. It didn’t happen that way. Here’s the actual story coming out of Deefield High:
Officials at Deerfield High School in Deerfield, Ill., have ordered their 14-year-old freshman class into a “gay” indoctrination seminar, after having them sign a confidentiality agreement promising not to tell their parents.
“This is unbelievable,” said Matt Barber, policy director for cultural issues for Concerned Women for America. “It’s not enough that students at Deerfield High are being exposed to improper and offensive material relative to unhealthy and high-risk homosexual behavior, but they’ve essentially been told by teachers to lie to their parents about it.”
In what CWA called a “shocking and brazen act of government abuse of parental rights,” the school’s officials required the 14-year-olds to attend a “Gay Straight Alliance Network” panel discussion led by “gay” and “lesbian” upperclassmen during a “freshman advisory” class which “secretively featured inappropriate discussions of a sexual nature in promotion of high-risk homosexual behaviors.”
And, of course, the ACLU will not be looking into it.
