Second group warns about indoctrination in 'LBGT History Month'

A conservative legal group is warning parents to protect their children from indoctrination by homosexual activists while “LGBT History Month” is celebrated in public schools during October.

Each day during the month, teachers highlight a supposedly noteworthy homosexual or lesbian - 31 in all who are referred to as "icons."

The 2013 list includes Sally Ride, the former astronaut, and CNN's Anderson Cooper. 

There are more controversial names, too. Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel describes Harry Hay, a past "icon." Hay was known for supporting NAMBLA, the North American Man Boy Love Association.

“At a speech, he was quoted as saying the best thing that can happen to young homosexual boy is to have a sexual relationship with an adult,” Barber says.

Hay, an early homosexual-rights leader, is called a “courageous activist” on NAMBLA’s own website, which states that he “spoke out on issues of man/boy love.”

Hay, who died in 2002, was also a Marxist and a member of Communist Party USA.

OneNewsNow previously reported that the Pacific Justice Institute has warned parents about the “icons” chosen, such as a transgender man who was killed after tricking men at a party into having sex with him, when he posed as a woman.

Barber, Matt (Liberty Counsel)School participation is not mandatory but Barber says there's a lot of pressure from the Obama administration to take part.

“So we see that across America, particularly in the ‘blue' states, many schools are disseminating this propaganda to youth and thereby creating a false image of what the homosexual lifestyle really entails,” says Barber.

Barber says concerned parents need to have their children opt out of such instruction if they find the school they attend is participating.
