"Two days after a California school board approved new curriculum that includes LGBT history, parents of more than 700 students kept their children home in protest."
The Rocklin Unified School District Board OK'd the newly approved 2019 California Department of Education's LGBT friendly curriculum on May 1, by a vote of 3 to 2. Thereupon "requiring students in kindergarten through fifth grades to learn about the contributions of key LGBT figures in history and social studies curriculum."
That astronaut and physicist Sally Ride "joined NASA and became the first female and first lesbian American astronaut," providing a "good example for all females," should be regarded as indispensable information for kids aged 5 to 11 is outrageous in itself.
If sexual desire or behavior toward a person or persons of one's own sex is, on God's authority, to be considered a vice, who then can make such vice into a "good example" and "required reading" for children?
Incensed, Rocklin parents led a revolt where 1,000 students were estimated to have been held out of class on May 3.
Because of their grit, a potential revolution in U.S. public education is underway. Taking responsibility for their children's education, parents across America are starting to turn away from secularism's indoctrinational teaching of fabricated principles.
The goal of militant LGBT drumbeaters is unquestionably political, with their behavior representing acts of rebellion against a sovereign God, leading to anarchy. Electing and passing into law homosexual "values" is their primary objective, in order to impose them on public and private education, the government and America's churches.
Rachel Henry, Sacramento's LGBT Community Center's Outreach and Training Director, inadvertently spelled out the California Department of Education's (CDE) duplicitous agenda: "We know that teaching children tolerance, love and kindness isn't enough—we have to actively teach about diversity within our community. Because if we're not naming those identities, we're ignoring and silencing them. ... We're just fighting against the idea that straight is 'normal'. Aside from gay marriage—which is only one aspect of equality—gay people still aren't a federally-protected class."
The 700-page CDE document "has overhauled its guidance for teaching sex education in public schools, encouraging teachers to talk about gender identity with kindergartners and give advice to help LGBT teens navigate relationships and practice safe sex.
"The framework tells teachers that students in kindergarten can identify as transgender and offers tips for how to talk about that," adding that "the goal is not to cause confusion about the gender of the child but to develop an awareness that other expressions exist."
Where does such LGBT brainwashing of 5- to 11-year-olds lead?
Jamie Shupe, a 55-yr-old male, has plenty to say about the subject:
I had wanted to live authentically as the woman that I have always been, [having] effectively traded my white male privilege to become one of America's most hated minorities.
Three years ago, I decided that I was neither male nor female, but nonbinary—and made headlines after an Oregon judge agreed to let me identify as a third sex, not male or female.
I'm one of the lucky ones. Despite participating in medical transgenderism for six years, my body is still intact. ... But that's not to say I got off scot-free. My psyche is eternally scarred, and I've got a host of health issues from the grand medical experiment.
There's abundant online literature informing transgender people that their sex change isn't real. But when a licensed medical doctor [or California Department of Education bureaucrat] writes you a letter essentially stating that you were born in the wrong body and a government agency or court of law validates that delusion, you become damaged and confused. I certainly did.
Rocklin parents are now 1) consulting with legal counsel, 2) planning to extend their opposition to the school board decision and 3) drafting a plan to defeat two of the three school board members who voted in favor for the pro-LGBT curriculum against the protests and will of the parents. Both are on the ballot for reelection in November 2020.
In answer to the question where the pastors in the Rocklin Unified School District are, parent Rachel Crutchfield said: "Most pastors don't want to get involved in controversial issues. They are afraid it will divide their congregations." What a sad commentary on present-day Christendom.

There's much to learn from 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 for modern America's Christendom, a culture saturated with "hermeneutical nihilism and pietistic retreatism that infests [even] the modern church," according to P. Andrew Sandlin's Forward to the Mission of God.
A.W. Pink's A Call to Separation instructs on the way forward for Christians in America:
This passage gives utterance to a Divine exhortation for those belonging to Christ—to hold aloof from all intimate associations with the ungodly. It expressly forbids them entering into alliances with the unconverted. It definitely prohibits the children of God walking arm-in-arm with worldlings. It is an admonition applying to every phase and department of our lives—religious, domestic, social, commercial. And never, perhaps, was there a time when it more needed pressing on Christians than now. The days in which we are living are marked by the spirit of compromise. On every side we behold unholy mixtures, ungodly alliances, unequal yokes. Many professing Christians appear to be trying how near to the world they may walk—and yet go to Heaven!
Let it be well understood that this incitement is not a call to monkhood, but rather to reestablish the ekklesia, as Jesus taught in Matthew 16:18, centered in the public square. The stated purpose is to disciple the nation by impacting the cultural mountains of influence, and thereby inserting the "leaven of heaven" across the whole interior of America—every hamlet, every town, every city—as we head to Washington, D.C., over the next decade.
In order to counter the spiritual free fall induced by secularism, formidable faith will be required of everyone entering the public square in 2020. As it is recorded for our instruction and encouragement, "the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. At the throne of grace we approach unto a great King, so let us bring large petitions with us. The more faith counts upon the infinite power and sufficiency of the Lord, the more is He honored."
Across America, Gideons and Rahabs are beginning to stand.
