A Christian activist in Illinois is warning her fellow conservatives in Maryland to take action against the use of homosexual propaganda in some of the material being taught in public schools there.

classroom sceneThe legalization of homosexual "marriage" in Maryland means parents there must now deal with school curriculum that puts homosexuality and same-sex marriage in a positive light. According to one report, Christian and conservative parents in Montgomery County will have to combat sex-ed curriculum that teaches students, for example, "the benefits of 'coming out'" and the harms of "homophobia."

One of the proposed videos, which offers a positive take on transgenderism, includes the statement: "Your sexual orientation cannot change."

Laurie Higgins, a cultural analyst with the Illinois Family Institute, argues that public schools are no place to perpetuate lies on controversial issues.

"... No arm of the government has any right to promote non-facts about homosexual activity or gender confusion – and that's what they're doing," says the pro-family activist. "And they should be called on it for that flaw, for that error in judgment."

Higgins says Christians must take a stand by speaking out and pushing back on this issue. "We have to point out that what [they] are promoting are not facts," she urges. "These are leftist views on the nature and morality of homosexuality – and our government bodies, which are public schools, have no right to affirm or promote one set of beliefs on controversial issues."

Christian Life News reports Christians have been battling the liberal agenda to promote the homosexual lifestyle in Montgomery County schools for nearly ten years.
