Parental Rights Advance in Texas

Texas continues to lead the nation in protecting children from sexually inappropriate books and supporting parental rights. As 2023 drew to a close, the Texas Board of Education voted to require local libraries to treat parents as the "primary decision makers regarding their student's access to library material." They also reminded libraries that state law prohibits libraries from purchasing harmful material.

Earlier in 2023, Texas joined a growing list of states that have cut off ties with the American Library Association (ALA). Sadly, the ALA has been taken over, literally, by Marxists. (Their current president, Emily Drabinski, proudly calls herself a "Marxist lesbian.")

Last year, the ALA published its list of 13 books that it claimed were "the most banned books in America." As JDFI has pointed out repeatedly, none of the books are actually "banned." They have simply been taken out of many classrooms because they are inappropriate for young children. All 13 books present sexually explicit themes.

In 2024, more states need to follow Texas' lead and support parental rights while protecting young children from radical sexual agendas.

All of this raises an important question. Why are influential, powerful organizations, including the ALA and the major teacher unions, so committed to exposing children at the earliest ages to sexual material over the objections of their parents? As the former Undersecretary of Education for President Reagan, I can assure you there is no legitimate educational purpose served by this "sexualization" of classrooms. The effort itself is all the evidence you need that America's children—your sons and daughters are at risk.


Listen to Gary Bauer's recent interview with Kirk Cameron, "See You at the Library," which highlights the issue of questionable content being celebrated in our public libraries.

The ? Scouts

Raise your hand if you were a member of Boy Scouts of America when you were growing up. I was, and I learned about duty to God and country, and the value of good character. Sadly, the organization has been "transitioning" itself for years and the results are not likely to inspire another generation of boys.

A Great Honor For A Great Man

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.
