Dr. James Dobson Praises Texas State Board of Education for Protecting Children

 

September 17, 2020 — "Progressive advocates seeking to push a radical sex indoctrination program into public schools just learned a valuable lesson: Don't mess with Texas!

"For two decades, the Texas State Board of Education has done it the right way. While schools are not required to provide sex education, any sex education that is offered must focus on abstinence until marriage. This commonsense approach has served the needs of Texas children well, and it has respected the God-given role of parents.

"Not surprisingly, the far left demanded a change. Activists groups like Planned Parenthood and its morally bankrupt allies were salivating at the chance to eliminate abstinence-based teaching once and for all and replace it with a not-suitable-for-children indoctrination program. If they got their way, 11 and 12-year-olds would spend classroom time learning about gender identity, condom use and other highly sexualized topics.

"Thank goodness the Texas State Board of Education had the courage to stand up to these corrupt bullies and their evil agenda. The Board deliberated last week on the proposed curriculum changes and, in its initial vote, struck down sex indoctrination 9-6. Notably, the vote was almost entirely along party lines, with all Democrats supporting the radical agenda and all but one Republican opposing it. A final vote will take place in November.

"This was a huge victory! A progressive site had hailed this as a "once in a generation" opportunity and predicted that what happened in Texas could quickly spread throughout the rest of the country. If last week's vote carries in November, let's hope they are right!

"Here's what you can do. Contact the State Board today at sboesupport@tea.texas.gov and let the members know that they got it right on the initial vote, and urge them to stand strong in November. If you don't live in Texas, contact your state's board of education, and tell them to take a lesson from Texas. Sexual indoctrination doesn't belong in the classroom!

"Finally, remember that the two major parties in this country have very different visions for America when it comes to educating our children and parental rights. With a major election less than 47 days away, let us never underestimate the power of casting a vote for what is right, and that is exactly what nine members of the Texas State Board of Education did this past week. I applaud their courage and convictions!"

Will The United Nations Be Your Doctor?

Opposition is building to a proposed World Health Organization (WHO) pandemic treaty. JDFI has been sounding the alarm for months, but the Biden administration has continued its negotiations with WHO. Under the proposed changes, WHO, a United Nations entity, would have sweeping new powers over public health authorities and elected officials in the U.S. and around the world. In addition, all signs point to the treaty not being sent to the Senate for ratification, but being agreed to, unilaterally, by the White House.
