MassResistance Texas Is the Headline at Mass Resistance -- Check Out Videos



Video presentations from the MassResistance Texas Citizen Action Conference. Heavyweight lineup of speakers on vital issues of the pro-family fight.

What every pro-family activist needs to know. Information you might not hear anywhere else.

April 27, 2017


Dr. Robert Oscar Lopez of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth is the leader of MassResistance Texas.
Below are the videos of the speaker presentations from the MassResistance Texas Chapter's Pro-family Citizen Action Conference held on April 1, 2017 in Austin Texas. According to some, this was the most informative pro-family conference held so far this year. It featured speakers on subjects most conference are afraid to cover.

1. Historical roots of today's pro-family fight - and what we must do to win

Brian Camenker of MassResistance opened the event and also served as master of ceremonies.

2. A Texas teacher exposes the LGBT agenda in elementary schools

A recently retired Texas elementary school teacher talked about how the LGBT movement has been infiltrating the pre-K and elementary education system in schools without parents or voters knowing. Even kindegartners were to be told about "homosexual love." Teachers are trained to subvert parents.

3. How teacher colleges enforce the LGBT agenda on new educators and administrators

A woman was taking courses to get her principal’s certificate at Texas State University. But she was not allowed to complete the certification because she refused to agree with the LGBT agenda.

Listen to this interview to see what happens to schools after "Anti-Bullying" Programs like Welcoming Schools are Institutd



This interview was with a thirteen-year-old California student, Elinor, who was enrolled in a public middle school that had been thoroughly subordinated to the LGBT agenda.

Steven Hotze's summary of the status of SB 6

SB 6, the bill proposed to prevent men from entering female bathrooms, seems to be widely supported in Texas but it keeps getting blockaded in the Texas legislature. Steven Hotze summarizes below:

Below is an excerpt:

So, the issue of SB 6 boils down to one of two choices for each state representative, either “No Men in Women’s Bathrooms, Showers and Locker Rooms” or “I Pee with LGBT.”

SB 6 was overwhelmingly passed by the Texas Senate by a 21-10 margin on March 14. Straus has not yet referred SB 6 to a house committee for a hearing.
Straus is blocking SB 6 and most Republican representatives are allowing him to do this. Only 35 of 95 Republican state representatives have put their name on the line as supporting SB 6There are 60 Republican representatives who will not even take a stand to protect the privacy and safety of women and girls. They are willing to sell out the safety of their mothers, wives, daughters and granddaughters to protect their financial interests. They love filthy lucre more than they love their family members or God’s immutable standards of behavior. They do not want Straus to bring it up. These 60 Republican Representatives have caved in to Straus.
If SB 6 were to be voted upon by the House, then it would pass overwhelmingly. Republicans would vote for it to protect their hide. If any Republican voted “I Pee with the LGBT” then he would face strong opposition in Republican primary. Straus and his lieutenants are blocking SB 6.
A motion needs to be made to vacate the chair and remove Straus from the speaker position. Straus is going to lead his followers down to defeat in the upcoming Republican primary elections in 2018 because they have not had the courage to oppose Straus and his liberal agenda. Most Republican state representatives do not even have the courage to protect the privacy and safety of women and girls by preventing perverted men and boys from entering women’s and girls’ bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.
No one should be considered a minority deserving of preferential treatment, because of their chosen sexual perversion, their so-called “gender identity” or the types of sexual acts in which they engage. These are all chosen behaviors. Take this thought process to its natural progression; what would prevent some activist judge from ruling that those who practice prostitution, transvestitism, pedophilia or bestiality are part of this class deserving of special protection because of their sexual orientation?

Texan Monica Cline Tells the Truth about Radical Sex Education, as someone who once advocated for it



Monica Cline spent a decade and a half spreading the left's gospel of sex-positive, anti-abstinence, no-judgments radicalism. She worked for a gay men's health group and went around telling women of color and homosexuals to do anything that felt good, but just wear a condom, use lubricant and get tested for HIV at regular intervals. Then she became a Christian and soon realized that the solutions proposed by comprehensive sex ed were worse than doing nothing at all. Now she is a trained advocate, armed with research, teaching vulnerable populations that self-control, true risk avoidance, abstinence, and chastity are far and away the best recourses to build personal prosperity. She has a ranging conversation with Robert Oscar Lopez about her journey from naivete to disillusionment to new wisdom.

News from other coalitions for safe education for kids

Making an Appearance at the Tea Party Rally

April 17 at the TX Capitol with the Tea Party Crowd

Yesterday, Jennifer Delgado, Sharon Armke, and I spent a good portion of our day at the capitol connecting with Tea Party members. 

I arrived to join in at the rally on the south side of the capitol. One of the speakers was Senator Bob Hall that represents the East Dallas area.  I gave him the recent flyer I created, and he was well aware of our recent April 1 event.  He also requested I send him the Welcoming Schools training modules from AISD. 

Later that afternoon, we attended the open mic session on the third floor.  Jennifer (and 1 year old Gabriela) and Sharon quickly began to talk with members in the hallway and inside the court of appeals room and passed out flyers.   I was eventually introduced by the moderator and was given about five minutes. 

During the sessions. I noticed a gentleman taping the session, he asked for my info and identified himself as a representative of "Raging Elephant Radio".  He's interested in booking an interview with me.  After the sessions were over, Sharon and I were approached by Eugene Ralph, a fellow believer and minister, from Game Chaingers and the Joshua Initiative (Regional Director in Dallas).  He was very supportive and encouraged us to connect with JA to get the word out about Welcoming Schools. Eugene also gave us some good ideas for our website.   Both of these men are African American and I can see that God is opening new doors that include that community!

Caryl Ayala tells the truth about LGBT movement forcing itself on Hispanic schoolchildren



Caryl Ayala, a Texan teacher, opens up about what she saw happening in a Title 1, majority-Latino elementary school in Texas. Sadly, in Hispanic school districts often parents are scared to confront school administrators about the troubling curriculum forced on their students. The dependence of poor, minority-dominant schools on grants and financial assistance also means oftentimes administrators are gagged and cannot push back against sexually inappropriate curriculum in their schools. This is an interview you have to hear if you are still hearing everywhere that LGBT fits in with multiculturalism. For more reading:

Presentation by Dan Moody on CSE


THE REVOLUTION OF LITTLE OLD CHURCH LADIES

Robert Oscar Lopez


On April 1, 2017, MassResistance Texas had its first public event: a citizen action meeting in Austin’s Oak Meadow Baptist Church. We gathered to discuss the crisis of elementary school curriculum in Texas. In particular, organized LGBT groups such as the Human Rights Campaign have amassed daunting funds and infiltrated Texas, district by district, with the goal of forcing homosexual and transgender content on children as young as four years old. See: http://www.massresistancetx.com/2017/04/the-april-1-meeting-got-lot-done.html


I was proud to be part of the event, even one of its speakers. The line I stated, which seemed to win the most cheers from the crowd was, “I realized, after years of fighting these battles, forget the millennials, the first people you need behind your movement are little old church ladies—they show up, they bring food, and they don’t abandon you under pressure.” There were loud cheers, and one gentleman stood up to say, “there’s a reason you need the little old church ladies—their prayer meetings.” The regularity of prayer meant that such meetings helped church ladies check in with God and fine-tune action strategies.


On April 1, experts came and shared crucial information, of course. MassResistance Texas will place these lectures online on its website soon.

Brian Camenker reviewed the history of American resistance to tyranny.

Caryl Ayala and Sharon Armke spoke of their experiences as Texas teachers overwhelmed by LGBT curriculum.

I discussed the structure of education and how LGBT curriculum undermines research, teaching, administration, service, and credentialing simultaneously.

Tom Littleton showed how the LGBT lobby has systematically sought to silence churches so that religious people do not resist their school takeovers.

Peter LaBarbera reviewed the corporate collusion with the LGBT lobby and how groups like Human Rights Campaign “shake down” companies for money and support.

David Pickup drew from his experience as a therapist to show how youth counseling has been corrupted by LGBT activists falsely claiming that any “reparative therapy” is criminal and abusive.

But these experts’ information will not move anything without the power of people in specific communities gathering force to safeguard local schools against this agenda. The grassroots will make or break efforts. We reviewed a “citizen action packet.” There is so much to do to save Texan children from the harms of false LGBT teaching. We have seen that politicians, high-profile intellectuals, and even church leaders are given to wavering and backing down, or losing focus, while the LGBT lobby advances.

But in my years of fighting for family causes, I’ve never seen little old church ladies let us down. We need a revolution now—and they are the key, if we can harness their power and show them the respect they deserve.

The April 1 Meeting Got A Lot Done!

MassResistance Texas had our first citizen action meeting at Oak Meadow Baptist Church in Austin, Texas. It was a great success! We brought together people from across Texas and really forged some action networks, which I hope will help parents protect their children from bad curriculum being forced on their schools.

The protesters never showed up but instead a solid group of energized parents and activists came together to form real plans to push back against the sneaky LGBT curriculum. The Latino pastor provided translations of all the presentations, and was a godly, warm man. Caryl Ayala and Sharon Armke impressed me a great deal with their energy and discernment. It delighted me to see Brian Camenker and Michelle Cretella again, always great folks to connect with. Meeting Tom Littleton inspired me too, though I felt I'd known him because we'd spent so many hours on the phone brainstorming ways to halt the Gay Lobby from subverting the Southern Baptist Convention. While I'd spoken in the past with Peter LaBarbera and David Pickup, in Austin I got to meet them and spend time talking to them face to face, which was great.

Brian Camenker

When the history of our social movement is written, Brian Camenker has to be recorded as a guy with incredible foresight and vision. He started MassResistance in deep-blue Boston twenty-two years ago. Following the example of figures like Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, Camenker noted that the natural inclination of mankind is to create tyrannies, often where people least expect them. In the 1990s, while Americans were largely tricked into believing that the gays were innocent, non-threatening victims who were simply asking to be respected, Camenker noted the disturbing facets of the oncoming movement. Regardless of how we might like gay individuals in our lives, the gay movement has been, at least since the 1990s, spearheaded by vicious organizations like the Human Rights Campaign, devoted to intimidating and humiliating dissenters from their orthodoxy, rather than trying to win people over with persuasive arguments. Camenker spotted the tyrannical underpinnings of the gay movement when few were able to see that. For that he deserves tremendous credit. Among pro-family activists, he also stands out as one of the few who understood the hopelessness of trying to combat the gay movement through large, well-funded think-tanks. The gay movement's advantage always came with its superior money and access to people in high places, largely because the gay organizations could raise lots of money but never had to spend it on providing services according to strict metrics, with the result that the gay groups could devote massive treasuries to harassing churchs, schools, and conservative groups that couldn't resist. Camenker saw this and realized that the only way to combat the gay movement would be to acknowledge the advantage gays had in money and elite access, give up trying to fight in those arenas, and instead go to the grassroots to profit from the advantages our side has: We have the Truth (we are right about most everything) and we have the people, since most Americans still agree with us about chastity, sexual responsibility, and children's need for modesty and innocence. He introduced the speakers and emceed the action meeting.

Caryl Ayala


Following Camenker's introduction, two retired Austin teachers spoke, Caryl Ayala and Sharon Armke. They were passionate and eloquent as they explained how their careers were derailed by the force of the LGBT agenda. I'd known that the LGBT activists were trying to get into schools but I had no idea until now how deeply they had infiltrated pre-K and early elementary ed without parents or voters knowing. Caryl explained how she was forced to endure hours of training to be an "LGBT-affirming teacher" and there were implicit threats that teachers who objected would not advance. She said children as young as four were given books and assignments requiring them to tell teachers how they felt about people of same sex falling in love, same-sex couples raising children, and people transitioning between sexes. She was even told not to refer to students as boys and girls... in pre-K.

Sharon Armke

Sharon Armke delivered a passionate speech complementing Caryl's, about how her dreams of getting her principal's certificate were dashed when she was dropped from the Internship her last semester. She was allowed to graduate with a MEd, but was not allowed to complete the Internship for her principal certification. She could not be hired as a principal after spending over $20,000 for the program. Why? She had not agreed with the LGBT agenda presented in many classes. She had not argued. She had just been silent and refused to agree with their LGBT agenda as it was forced on the students in class after class. When she asked her supervisor why they dropped her, he responded, "Nobody said life was fair."

But Sharon stated that the worst thing about the situation was what was being taught to children as young as four. She brought an email just sent to her, telling her how a librarian at an Austin ISD middle school was encouraging sixth-grade students to read homosexual romance novels. As a result of an authority figure advertising and promoting homosexuality, one parent told Sharon how her daughter's friend in sixth grade had just decided she was a lesbian! The predatory nature of this LGBT agenda is exposed. They are deliberately confusing children and creating children who think that they are homosexual as a direct result of classroom instruction. Sharon considers this purposeful child abuse at the hands of public school teachers and administrators.

Michelle Cretella

Michelle Cretella lectured via Skype but it felt like she was really with us for real! She delivered an excellent Powerpoint and lecture about the natural development of children's sexual identities. She is the president of the American College of Pediatricians, a group that includes 500 top experts in child medicine across the country. She explained where a lot of the trans agenda crosses the line into child abuse when it's being forced on minors. It is normal, she explained, for a lot of children to be gradual and subtle in their eventual recognition of sex differences as well as their sex identity. There is nothing abnormal about a child wishing to be of the opposite sex, all the way up until the age of seven or right. Medication, raising the child as the opposite sex, or surgery are all dangerous forms of manipulating a child. Since psychiatrists have long known that prior to puberty, children can waver in their identification with males or females, there is no reason to inflict transitioning measures on children when they are young. The risk of sterility alone is enough to make many of the hormone-blockers incredibly unethical, let alone the surgery. The research currently offers no evidence that children are born with a trans or gay identity.

My talk on educational institutions

After Michelle's eye-opening lecture, I spoke for about 15 minutes on the real-life impact of LGBT curriculum on educational institutions. Mapping out the connections among five areas of academic work -- research, teaching, service, administration, and credentialing -- I explained that LGBT curriculum never enters the institutions innocently. Rather, the research becomes heavily doctored and politicized, and teachers are forced to open up classroom time to topics that are almost destined to provoke responses that can be used as the basis for disciplinary action. The teacher is accused of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation if he doesn't show enthusiastic support for LGBT claims based on bad research, which are not even true. As teachers start to censor themselves, the service area of schools also declines, because now clubs, guest presenters, extracurricular events, the school libraries, and disciplinary procedures all become captive to people's fear of being labeled as anti-gay. Gay-straight alliances are encouraged while Christian clubs are discouraged. Kids who mock Christian views on chastity are seen as speaking out and expressing themselves, while kids who do not state that homosexuality is good are seen as disruptive and bullying. The major point here is that the LGBT curriculum does not only warp one part of the educational system, but all of it, and parents have to fight back early on.

Tom Littleton

Rev. Littleton is a Southern Baptist evangelist from Alabama who spent years in ministry outreach to homosexuals. Along the way he got to know a lot about the LGBT movement, how little it did to help actual gay people, and how fixated it was with the churches. Rev. Littleton brought many books and exhibits with him to show how, since the 1960s, concerted efforts backed by enormous funding have focused on changing the world religions to make rules about chastity no longer operable. He mentioned the Yogyakarta Principles and earlier works. He discussed his own meetings with people in the Human Rights Campaign, who told him several years ago that one grant had been for $8 million to create ways to change Baptist churches in Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas. The gay groups sought to send trans youth or gay couples into churches to "test" them. People in churches, even in the Bible Belt, were intimidated into accepting homosexuality. Pastors refrained from discussing sexuality in sermons and came to pretend as though certain scriptures like Romans 1 did not even exist. Tom's lecture was a sobering review of how far the tentacles of this lobby have reached even into churches, which bodes ill for hopes of religious liberty in the future.

Peter LaBarbera

Peter has had years of experience working on the dangers of the organized LGBT movement. He gave us a shocking overview of the way corporations are dragged into this agenda. The Human Rights Campaign creates a 100-point "equality index" which becomes the basis for companies to be boycotted or penalized in the market (notice how many corporations threatened to pull out of North Carolina over the bathroom bill.) As Peter explained, the scoring system requires corporations to hold extensive training sessions that beat employees over the head with LGBT ideology. Moreover, there has to be a system of investigating bias and recruitment efforts geared toward getting gays to work for them. One factor is whether the corporation gives money to LGBT groups like the Human Rights Campaign! Companies lose 25 points out of 100 if they donate to groups deemed anti-LGBT or have any other "blemishes" or public controversies about ill-treating LGBTs. Peter showed how these policies create a shakedown system, a system of extortion, which continues swelling the coffers of the Human Rights Campaign. 

Video of Children of Gays

I introduced and explained this video to state that activists should not cite concern for children with gay parents as the reason to force their pro-LGBT materials onto elementary schools. The depictions of gay parenting in pro-LGBT curricular materials are so one-sided they come across, to most children raised in such homes, as insultingly false. Kids feel erased rather than affirmed, because the whole school is romanticizing an image of gay parenting that erases their pains and makes it impossible for them to come forward with their struggles. These excerpts come from adult children of LGBTs looking back. 


David Pickup

David Pickup is a licensed therapists who deals with many clients who struggle with gender identity or sexual orientation issues traced back to childhood. David talked about the problem of these new curricula coinciding with the massive movement to ban any counseling for youths other than counseling designed to get them to come out as gay. In 25 states LGBT activists have sought to criminalize any counseling for young people to help them resolve unwanted same-sex attractions or gender confusion. Even the well-documented role of trauma and sex abuse in many such cases has been swept aside by courts fearful of being attacked by LGBT activists. The result is that schools, as they introduce suggestive curriculum about homosexuality and transgenderism, are also offering students corrupt and deficient counseling, always telling students to identify as LGBT even when in many cases these students would be much better off resolving other issues tied to their confusion, and waiting until adulthood, by which time the majority of these young people will end up heterosexual if left alone.

Action Plans

The lectures were provocative and informative, but parents also want to know: What do we to stop this agenda? I distributed our 25-page citizen action packet and went over eight different courses of action we can take to pressure schools, churches, communities, governments, and press outlets to tell the truth about the harm done by LGBT curriculum in pre-K-through-5 education, and to start cleaning these harmful influences out of the schools so Texas kids learn:

Message from Andrew Walker of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission

Robert,

I'm sorry to see you've been attacked by the utterly illegitimate Southern Poverty Law Center. How sad that an organization like theirs continues to get attention from the media.

We at the ERLC do hope that your event this weekend in Texas goes well combating the Human Rights Campaign. While you have our best wishes for the success of your event, I should note that standard ERLC practice is to let the state-affiliate ERLC take the lead in state matters unless we're expressly asked to help intervene by the state convention.

Blessings to you and your event,
Andrew

The Momentum is with biblical sexual values, not with sexual radicalism



BY ROBERT OSCAR LOPEZ

This article by John Nolte in Daily Wire brings to the forefront many of the issues that we struggle with, as parents and citizens fighting back against confusion imposed on our young people:

http://www.dailywire.com/news/14896/watercooler-blind-spot-left-not-winning-culture-john-nolte?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_content=032817-news&utm_campaign=dwtwitter#exit-modal

Mr. Nolte is responding to a sentiment expressed quite often these days, to the effect of: "We have lost the culture wars. It is time to be super-duper, extra nice with cherries on top, and not fight about things that make people really mad, like the fact that the Bible bans sodomy and homosexual activity seems to have a lot of negative effects on people."

This defeatist sentiment isn't emerging naturally, first of all. It has been carefully cultivated by strategists within the Gay Lobby. Consider that the Human Rights Campaign and the Southern Poverty Law Center both rake in enormous amounts of cash, often from less than scrupulous fundraising tactics. Two articles to illustrate are here:

https://www.autostraddle.com/hrcs-international-expansion-funded-by-the-worst-humans-is-the-worst-203622/

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2017/03/19/the_hate_group_that_incited_the_middlebury_melee_133377.html

Different figures appear in different articles about these groups, but it is clear that they collect tens of millions of dollars in surplus each year, and their principal holdings seem to be growing, into the hundreds of millions of dollars.

How the HRC and Gay Lobby Have Been Empowered by White House Faith-Based Partnerships

by Rev Tom Littleton

Most people have heard the terminology of The White House Faith Based Neighborhood Partnerships (FBP) at least in the recent change in language when referring to churches and ministries who participate in social programs. 

These organizations have almost universally come to be known as faith-based groups. A lesser known fact is that religious and Christian groups are participating in government funding program grants to provide social services to their community.

The concept is nothing new. Today’s programs actually date back to the George H Bush Charitable Choice program and the Clinton era welfare reforms. In early 2001 Bush W actually instituted the current White House program by executive order allowing access to public funds for churches and ministries/ religious groups who had a proven track record of helping their communities. However very little funding was budgeted toward it. 

As the Obama administration took office LGBTQ groups like the Human Rights Campaign called for an end to the FBP as funding discriminatory groups. Instead the focus changed and HRC and other influential group were invited to serve on the Presidents Inaugural Advisory Board to reform the program as soon vast amounts of tax money were about  to be infused into it.

TEXAN ONLINE article on Welcoming Schools, Austin ISD, and LGBT curriculum

This article by Bonnie Pritchett of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention of Texas provides key details about the curriculum that MassResistance Texas is organizing to combat:

http://texanonline.net/archives/5534/

The article also includes links:

http://sbtexas.com/texas-ethics-religious-liberty-committee/

Here is a passage from Ms. Asmussen's article:


Who gets bullied?

According to stopbullying.gov, a website managed by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, students are most likely bullied because of their looks. The research cited in the AISD “Welcoming Schools” lesson plans corroborated the government statistics: the majority of bullied students are targeted for their “looks” (55 percent), “body shape” (37 percent), or race (16 percent). By comparison other students were targeted for being LGBT (14 percent); for family income (13 percent); for religion (12 percent); and disability (8 percent).
The TEXAN questioned AISD about the curriculum’s content and the need for an additional anti-bullying program that assists only LGBT students. In response, the district stated, “Austin ISD’s philosophy is to educate the whole child. That includes helping students understand and express their emotions in constructive ways. Through a variety of innovative programs such as social and emotional learning, anti-bullying programs and a restorative justice approach to discipline, students are taught to be inclusive of people different from them and to treat them with respect.”
The TEXAN obtained lesson plans used for introducing “Welcoming Schools” to teachers and, ultimately, their students. Module 1, “What is a Family?” begins with the deconstruction of the traditional family as the societal norm. It cites statistics on how many children are raised outside of the two-parent (Mom and Dad) home and features a film narrated by 6-12-year-old children talking about their same-sex parents or their parents’ gay friends.
In module 4, “What is Gender? Examining the Continuum of Gender Identification, Gender Expression, and Stereotypes,” teachers are asked to answer questions about their preconceived ideas about gender (i.e. gender bias). The lesson states, “By embracing the richness of the gender spectrum, teachers and other adults can help broaden children’s understandings of gender in order to help every child feel seen and recognized.”
By Module 5 children are told they can choose their gender identity even if that identity conflicts with biological reality. Questioning the child’s choice of gender is not an option for teachers or students.
The possibility that the lessons might conflict with the consciences and faith convictions of AISD teachers, students and families is never acknowledged in the modules.
Asmussen said “Welcoming Schools” curriculum highlights a bigger problem of progressive educational overreach. Promoted as a means of helping students achieve academic success through character development, an initiative known as social and emotional learning (SEL) is being introduced nationwide.
The Collaborative for Academic, Emotional, and Social Learning (CASEL) is one purveyor of the ideologically driven program and in 2011 tapped Austin ISD to pilot the program. Today the SEL initiative is on all 129 campuses and is being introduced in El Paso, Houston and Dallas school districts.

Sunday's Bible Quote on School Curriculum

Mark 9:42

Said Jesus, "But whoever causes the downfall of one of these little ones who believe in Me--it would be better for him if a heavy millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea."

Teaching young people the right things MATTERS.

Protecting Sexual Minority Youth Or Promoting LGBT ?

BY TOM LITTLETON

Today's news is littered with stories of LGBT youth. Their struggles and perceived need of protection are front page daily. The cause is everywhere and the issues are multidimensional. No stone is left unturned to seek out. find and meet the need of LGBT youth. It only makes sense that the focus of those wanting to ensure the safety and rights of sexual minority youth would focus in schools and the arena of education. Right?  But are we getting the real story and have the outcomes intended for children in public education been clearly stated. Actually the goals and outcomes have been stated but are not part of the primary narrative for public consumption.

Since 2009 the Department of Education has become a hotbed of LGBT activism and this trickles down to the local school campus. Former President Obama, according to the Gay and Lesbian Victory Institute appointed almost 30 activist https://www.victoryinstitute.org/PAI within the U S Department of Education. This was in addition to hundreds more in every federal agency. The most notable or perhaps notorious of these appointees was Kevin Jennings the homosexual founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. GLSENs has helped form and promote gay clubs on Jr High and High school campuses across the country. These clubs rally and train LGBT identifying youth to be activist and to engage "straight youth" as allies in on campus clubs called the Gay Straight Alliance. These groups are hosted by sympathetic teachers and advocate for straight kids sympathies and support of LGBT rights. Let us get this straight, a nationally known homosexual activist in his mid -50s with funding from foundations and corporations has had a federal job in the Department of Education to help spread his organizations ideology and narrative to train activist youth and engender sympathies among straight students in your local school. It is likely your child or grandchild has been influenced by this effort. Activist boast that "you will be less likely to resist change if you know and like someone who is gay, lesbian, bisexual, or trans."

So what is the change they are talking about? To put it plainly the goal is to redefine sexual norms for the next generation. The method is simple. You create an atmosphere where it is cool in school to be LGBT. Then you engender sympathies and shame anyone who does not see it your way. Then you add the concept of Q. You may have noticed the list of sexual minorities in the sexual alphabet soup is growing. Q was added by the more radical elements to own the slur of the word Queer and thus empower the in your face approach of the radicals. But in 2012 a new meaning for Q was added and at times you will see LGBTQQ so both meanings are represented. It is hard to follow but it is almost certain your children know what all the letters stand for. What is the second Q? It stands for Questioning and who added it? Planned Parenthood. the unseen big sister activist group working in education. Their mission and definition of Q is to promote "Questioning". The assertion is that it is "normal" to question your sexuality, orientation and gender "at any age" and questioning should lead to "exploration " of your sexuality, orientation and gender. " You will know when you are ready". This is their only qualification for age of consent to embark on your personal sexual journey. Make no mistake. The goal in education is to make allies of your straight kids and encourage as many students as possible to explore the sexual boundaries and redefine them for themselves. This is the new normal and the standard or sexual ethics determined for public education. The hope is to achieve the goal Human Rights Campaign boasted of in 2014 "to create a thriving LGBTQ population ". Getting the facts and going beyond the public narrative to the intended outcomes is a must for parents and grand parents lest we fail to see where LGBTQ activism in education intends to take our children and what it means for their sexual futures.

TX Senate Committee votes 8-1 for SB 6--Controversial LGBT Curriculum in Grade Schools Comes to Light!!!

There is significant attention paid currently to SB 6, a bill proposed in the Texas State Senate to limit school bathrooms to use by individuals according to the biological sex indicated on their birth certificates. Caryl Ayala, who is part of Mass Resistance Texas, provided this testimony in favor of SB6, along with Sharon Armke:



These two witnesses drew attention to the problem that the HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN, an LGBT activist organization, is flooding Texas school districts with money, pushing highly sexualized curriculum on young children. It seems as though the curriculum is designed to create more LGBT students rather than to prevent bullying (its expressed purpose).

Caryl and Sharon will be among those present at a citizens' action meeting on April 1, 2017, in Austin Texas, to plan action to block this inappropriate and politically motivated curriculum from our schools. Below are photographs taken at the SB 6 hearings--clearly reflecting that national activist groups are funding the efforts against SB 6 and in favor of transgender-promoting policies in Texas schools:



To give a sense of what kind of cultural outlook these curriculum and policy changes will bring, see photos of an earlier rally in Austin demanding that Texas reimpose Barack Obama's executive order forcing transgender bathroom policies on local schools:

:




Citizens in Texas -- be they Christian, Jewish, or of any faith or no faith -- are reaching their breaking point with this hyper-sexualization of our youth. LGBT militants are trying to push dysfunctional sexualities on our young people in order to render them dependent on their political "support" networks, and in order to alienate them from their parents who have their best interests at heart.

Often these changes are pushed under cover of darkness, by putting forward one supposedly transgender child (often too young to have even developed any such identity) in order to force whole districts to comply in order to avoid lawsuits.

In the case of curriculum, activists have classified the age-inappropriate LGBT lessons as "anti-bullying" or "social and relational conduct" classes rather than sex education, thereby avoiding some districts' requirements that parents be notified and given a chance to remove their kids from the program.

The only way to turn the tide on this is to gather force as concerned citizens and mobilize. Action plans will be available at the April 1 meeting described below, and experts will be present to provide sound evidence and counter-arguments against the usual tricks pulled by pro-LGBT activists when they try to force these harmful programs on youth. For instance, there is almost no evidence that people are born gay, there is little evidence that Texas will suffer disastrous business consequences for protecting children from unwelcome sexualization, suicide rates among LGBTs have been grossly exaggerated and misleadingly attributed in the press, and coming out of the closet very young as "gay" or "trans" seems according to most evidence to lead to greater instability and unhappiness later in life. The best adjusted people who choose to identify as LGBT tend to be those who avoid the LGBT identity and community until they are past high school and stable enough to navigate serious issues in those settings.

What the Human Rights Campaign is doing in the Austin ISD?

This April 1st, the Austin community and the Texas public at large will hear about what the Human Rights Campaign is doing in the Austin Independent School District. Why should it matter to you? Because everyday thousands of you drop off your kids at your local public elementary school doorstep and trust that he or she will be educated in reading, writing and arithmetic. But what you don't know is that teachers are becoming increasingly responsible for your child's development in areas well outside the basics. Teachers are already in charge of making sure your kids eat well, exercise, and treat each other as they want to be treated (character training). It only makes sense that the next step would be to spiritual training. What would you call meditation exercises called mindfulness where your child is staring at a pulsating ball on a screen while listening to a voice giving instructions? Or maybe you’ve taught your kids that they are a special because they were born a boy or a girl and are fearfully and wonderfully made. Maybe you send your kids to weekly religion classes where a family of a father, mother and children are encouraged and weddings and confirmations or similar religious celebrations are sacred to family life. Welcoming Schools will teach them differently. That’s right, your elementary school library has a section of books just to teach your kid otherwise. As a matter of fact, the HRC’s normalization of homosexuality begins in Pre K-5 under Welcoming Schools and continues right through high school all in the name of antibullying. Look for the AISD rainbow stickers posted around your kids’ campus.
I spent the last seven years of my teaching career coaching parents in the areas of parental academic responsibilities and stressing their role as their child’s first teachers. From the very beginning of our relationship, we formed an alliance. Myself, as teacher. They as the directors of their kids’ academic futures. Many of the parents invited me to their birthday parties, confirmations, and even to a wedding once. Even now I occasionally see many of my students. So, imagine how I felt the day I was trained to go against their beliefs, not to mention my own. These families of young children trusted me and confided in me about many issues outside the academic realm.
Why join Mass Resistance TX?
So, just like the body of Christ, I see Mass Resistance TX with many members that are gifted with God given skills to be used for the Kingdom. The way I see it, I didn’t look for this cause, it found me. Actually, I had prayed if God would open doors, I would walk through them. I’m just doing my part. And so I won’t stop wanting to get out the word to Austin families.

A chance to take action against sexualizing our youth on APRIL 1, 2017!

If you were infuriated upon hearing the discussion of "pedophilia" and "pederasty" in the Milo scandal [explained below, in case you missed it] then do more than tweet and post angry statements against Mr. Yiannopoulos. The bigger issue is what's happening in your children's schools! An organization called the Human Rights Campaign is spending millions to force kids to learn about homosexuality and other age-inappropriate sex issues. This will make the scandalous issue of 13-year-old boys engaging in sex acts with older men even more acceptable and viewed as normal. On April 1, 2017, Mass Resistance Texas will be hosting a gathering in order to bring together parents and citizens who are ready to tell our leaders in Austin that we will not stand by and let our children be sexually degraded!

See this article below for background...

How to Recover from Post-Milo Stress Disorder
Robert Lopez

To recap: On February 1, 2017, Milo’s scheduled appearance in Berkeley incited riots. These revealed the left’s psychological unraveling. Nineteen days later, on February 20, the right wing’s support for Mr. Yiannopoulos crumbled amid hysteria about excerpts of Milo’s references to his own experience as a sexual abuse victim. Between a Sunday and a Tuesday, CPAC deleted Milo from their schedule of speakers and replaced him with non-provocative Michael Reagan. Milo lost a publishing deal for a book that had risen to the top of Amazon’s pre-order list, and resigned from his position as editor of Breitbart.

Texas families band together for faith and for children

Mass Resistance is a group that originally started in Massachusetts, in response to changes imposed in that state, which endangered the sanctity and health of the family.

Parents in Massachusetts watched a slow progression of increasingly dangerous experiments in social engineering, largely advanced by pro-LGBT and gender-radical educators. These experiments moved swiftly from theories among elites to wide-ranging programs forced upon average families against their will. Mainstream conservative advocates opposed many of these measures but were often caught off guard or approached the issues with a little too much fear, so worried parents like Brian Camenker organized from the grassroots up.

As the Mass Resistance website grew in worldwide popularity many groups chartered their own MR chapters. At long last, the movement has come to Texas.

You might think that Texas is safe territory, far removed from the radicalism of blue states like Massachusetts and California. But you would have to think again. In truth, the same well-funded advocacy groups like the Human Rights Campaign (a deceptively titled concern pushing radical changes in sexuality on increasingly younger citizens) have expanded their sphere of power. Working with large donations received from wealthy power-brokers such as Paul Singer, the HRC has surfaced in various cities across Texas in recent weeks, promoting what looks, to the innocent parent, like a program that discourages bullying and encourages tolerance and diversity. Underneath the surface, however, one finds a vast array of age-inappropriate doctrines such as transgenderism, gay parenting, homosexuality, and other radical concepts. The target audience for these programs is no longer college students or adolescents, but children in younger grades, as young as elementary school.

Mass Resistance Texas will be working to push back and give a voice to families who want what is best for children: healthy, age-appropriate, and developmentally sound education, which respects the right of every child to have a chance at growing up well-adjusted, confident, and culturally prepared for adulthood in American society.
