Montana MassResistance: Big Victory After Initial Loss (Final Victory in Sight)

 

After initial loss: Big WIN in Montana Legislature against powerful transgender movement. House passes bill to ban transgender surgeries on children.

MassResistance worked with sponsor to re-file bill that was initially defeated

On to the State Senate – where chances of passage are excellent

See video below of bizare LGBT testimony against it!

March 5, 2021
ALT TEXT The public hearing on Bill 427 before the Montana House Judiciary Committee faced a full-court press by the LGBT lobby, the radical medical establishment, and more.

The powerful and well-financed transgender movement suffered a big loss as pro-family Republicans and MassResistance refused to give up on an important push to protect vulnerable children from permanent damage to their bodies.

Initial loss shocked parents and families

We reported on Feb. 2 that bill 113 to ban the ghastly transgender “sex-change” procedures (both surgeries and hormone treatments) being done on children was defeated 51-49 in the Montana House of Representatives. It was a tremendous shock to people in that state.

These “medical procedures” permanently change and disfigure a child, often result in sterilization, and cause enormous trauma lasting a lifetime. But they are big money-makers for so-called “gender clinics” in children’s hospitals (and many smaller clinics), as well as “Big Pharma.” The transgender push on children is an important part of the LGBT ideology, which has now been accepted throughout corporate America.

Even though the Montana Legislature is dominated by Republicans, 19 Republicans caved in and voted against that bill. They would not stand up to the enormous pressure from organized LGBT activists, the Montana Hospital Association, and even the Montana Chamber of Commerce.

The sponsor of Bill 113 was Rep. John Fuller, a wonderful pro-family fighter. Immediately after the bill’s defeat, Rep. Fuller filed a Motion to Reconsider. But that was defeated by an even greater margin, 53-46, as more Republicans caved in. The situation looked bleak.

Not giving up: Bill was re-filed!

MassResistance activists in Montana strongly encouraged Rep. Fuller and the other key lawmakers who had pushed for Bill 113 not to give up. They agreed that the damage being done to vulnerable children was too horrific to call it quits.

Working with another legislator who had a draft for legislation which could cover subjects relating to health issues, Rep. Fuller introduced a revised version of the initial bill. The new bill was titled HB 427.

Because of the Montana legislature’s rules of procedure, a new bill has to be considerably different, or it will get struck down as redundant. For that reason, HB 427 only bans the transgender surgeries. It does not include puberty blockers or cross-sex hormones. This legislation is not perfect, but it’s much better than nothing. And because of this difference, the House leadership – which had opposed Bill 113 – decided not to oppose Bill 427. The bill passed its procedural review in the House Rules Committee, 12-7.

The big fight: House Judiciary Committee Hearing

Before it could go to the full House, it had to get through the House Judiciary Committee.

The House Judiciary Committee hearing for Bill 427 and several other bills convened on Feb. 22 – at 7:00 am in the morning! The small committee hearing room included nearly a dozen LGBT activists and supporters from across Montana. Others had signed up to testify remotely via Zoom. The hearing on Bill 427 was allowed to go on for only a little more than an hour.

At the hearing, Rep. Fuller spoke first on Bill 427. In fairly strong terms, he reminded the committee members that government has a right and responsibility to step in and protect children – even against pressure from special interests.

ALT TEXT Rep. Juhn Fuller faced down the LGBT onslaught without flinching!

The proponents of the bill spoke first. Although our side had wide support across the state, we only had four people who were willing to publicly testify. Luckily, one of them was our National Director, Arthur Schaper who anticipated what the opponents would say and demolished their regular talking points. The director of the Montana Family Foundation also spoke.

About 20 people spoke against the bill, in person and via Zoom. They ranged from recent high school graduates (fully propagandized) to adult “transgenders,” left-wing activist groups (including Planned Parenthood), radical medical people (including a pediatrician, a surgeon, and psychiatrist!) and, of course, parents of “transgender children.”

Their range of arguments were quite chilling, offensive, full of obvious lies, and pointedly ridiculous. But it was clearly well organized and rehearsed. They repeated over and over the LGBT propaganda that not allowing these mutilating medical operations on children would somehow “hurt” so-called “transgender youth.” It was a testament to the power and ideological force of the LGBT movement even out in Montana.

Here is the testimony. It’s an hour long – but a real education!:

VIDEO: Testimony on Bill 427 to ban ghastly transgender surgeries on children (1 hr 7 min)

At the end of the hearing Rep. Fuller spoke again. Then a vote was taken and the bill passed out of committee, 11-8.

The pro-LGBT contingent was well-organized and well-rehearsed with their disinformation and irrational talking points.

ALT TEXT Misinformation. This woman is a pediatric urologist who falsely claimed that the bill would ban surgeries on children to correct deformities or to treat cancer or urinary problems. In fact, the text of the bill specifically excludes issues not related to gender dysphoria or gender transition.
ALT TEXT Misguided emotion. This person, with the "Montana Human Rights Network," claimed that a 19-year-old male-to-female "transgender" attempted suicide last week because he heard that this bill had been re-introduced - and that bills like this cause suicides, and also have "devastating effects on the economy."

Votes on the full House floor – it passed this time!

From there, Bill 427 went to the House floor. Since the House leadership wasn’t opposed and our side kept up the pressure, this time the momentum was with it!

In Montana, a bill needs to pass the House twice to move on to the Senate. On Feb. 24, it passed by 59-40. On Feb. 25 it passed by even more, 60-38.

And on to the Senate. One of our MassResistance activists is a Montana State Senator. He and others tell us that it should have no trouble getting through the Senate! There haven’t been any committee hearings scheduled yet. But this time we will have a MUCH stronger force for testimony!

Final reflection

The conservative movement is known for quitting when things go south. We don’t believe in quitting!

But the fact that this was such a hard battle in a red state like Montana shows the power of the huge money behind these radical and very destructive left-wing causes, even in the most conservative of states. But that’s been a problem for over 50 years. Wealthy conservatives do not want to fund grassroots activism to fight back – especially against the LGBT movement, but also other radical movements like Black Lives Matter. This is not likely to change – but it means that all of us need to work harder than the other side with the resources we have!

"Aqua Man", Conversion, Therapy, and the Truth

In Singapore, there is a growing movement to discredit and ultimately ban reparative therapy, falsely referred to as "conversion therapy". Part of the reason LGBT activists insist on calling this life-saving therapy "conversion therapy" is that they want to discredit this life-saving practice as a figment of religious superstition, and nothing more.

Reparative therapy has a number of professional clinicians around the world, and the therapy involves cognitive, vocal, and emotional practices. There is no physical harm used, and there is no shaming or dishonor employed. The lies of the LGBT hate groups around the world have spread nonstop lies to dissuade countries and psychological associations to reject this therapy.

In the United States, more courts are striking down reparative therapy bans, but sadly in other parts of the world, the lies remain pervasive and persist that "conversion therapy" is inherently flawed, false, and harmful.

A number of reparative therapists are providing more consistent research to combat these falsehoods, as well.




Now, in Singapore, a new five-minute documentary has come out: "Aqua Man."

"Aqua" is a play on words, meaning "weak or broken" but also "homosexual" in Chinese.

It's a movie short, five minutes, focused on the intense conflict of a young man, Junjie, who is struggling with same-sex attraction.  As he walks into his HDB flat after a long day at school, he sees his mother and a local pastor. The mother beckons her son to come to the pastor, who then gently places his hands on the son's head, and so does the mother. The pastor then leads a prayer, asking God to help the young Junjie break free of the "demon of homosexuality."



Clearly torn and writhing in pain, the boy pushes away the hands of his mother and the pastor, then retreats to the side of the room. The mother aggressively grabs his shoulders, confronts him for pushing away the pastor. The boy starts crying, he admits that he has tried to stop the same-sex feelings that he struggles with, but he still is attracted to other males.

The mother tries to bring her son back to the pastor. In the struggle to resist her, the son inadvertently pushes his mother to the ground. He tries to apologize, but overcome with frustration as well as grief, he just walks out of the HDB flat.

This is a very poignant film short, and yet its very pointed message is wrong on so many levels. There is proper criticism of the so-called "conversion therapy" that takes place, but the larger problems lie in the ... lies about what Christianity, what the Gospel is really about.

There are elements in this film short which inadvertently provide better insight into what Junjie is really struggling with, too.

First, I want to deal with some accurate criticisms portrayed in the movie.

True reparative therapy is not "pray the gay away." It's understandable that people of faith that prayer works, and it does, but people have to pray with a proper understanding of who they are in Christ, and how He wants us to receive all things from Him (Romans 8:32). Despite all of htis, the LGBT lobby relies heavily on atired, fraudulent trope regarding "pray the gay away" precisely to discredit the truth that people are not "born that way" and that proper therapeutic treatment can help people break free from unwanted same-sex temptations. There is no evidence that people are born gay, that it is a genetic trait of some kind, or that people are born in the wrong body and require some kind of corrective surgeries.

Sadly, though, there are too many religious groups that rely on prayer or the power of suggestion to deal with the emotional and mental traumas which individuals are grappling with, which undergird those same-sex temptations. When they are in the midst of their struggles with same-sex temptations, they need truth, and prayer that amounts to nothing more than "begging God" is not helpful.

Also, people of faith are not dealing with the true origins of the conflict if they label homosexual feelings "demonic". True, there are demonic forces in the world, but they transmit lies, and make people believing the wrong things, which induce bad thoughts, negative emotions, and unwanted desires. 

Jesus said to the Israelites of His day: "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." (John 8:32)

Just setting people down, praying over them with a droning pattern of psychological suggestion does not set people free. There is real pain, real torment for people who are struggling with these feelings, and they need someone to speak to those concerns, something else besides "be changed". The answer is the Love of God, yes indeed, and prayer can open their eyes to see the grace of God more fully working in their lives. But this arbitrary "pray the gay away" is not the way that the "gay" goes away.

Now, for the criticism regarding the presentation of Christianity, or more precisely, the Gospel.

At the outset of this film short, the mother says "I think God is punishing me." That is wrong. The Lord Jesus took all our sins, all the punishment that we deserve, on the Cross. Clearly, this woman does not have a clear understanding of all that Jesus is and all that He has done at the Cross. Whether that is a deliberate slight against faith in Christ by the film maker, or an objective dramatization by the director, is another story.

When Junjie comes into the HDB flat, she tells her son: "The pastor will wash your sins away."




That is the most blasphemous remark in the whole movie. It is not any man who takes away sins from another, but the perfect, incorruptible, eternal Blood of Jesus Christ, which was shed at the Cross, and His blood cleanses (present tense) and speaks "better things than the blood of Abel" (Hebrews 12:24).

And His blood pays for the sins of the entire world! (1 John 2:2)

As the pastor prays over the boy, he says: "You have to believe that the Lord is able to forgive your sins,"



Wow! This pastor hasn't heard the full message of the Gospel! Not at all! How can he minister to this troubled boy when he does not understand the fullness and goodness of the Good News!

Paul the Apostle could not have made it clearer:

"38Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man [Jesus Christ] is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: 39And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses." (Acts 13:38-39)

Jesus did a perfect work! Our sins have all been paid for!

"And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;" (Colossians 2:13)

and

"3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:" (Ephesians 1:3)

Consider also this description of what Jesus did at the Cross:

"For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." (2 Corinthians 5:21)

Jesus became sin, that we could become sons of God, beloved of our loving FATHER in Heaven! That is Good News! Instead of hearing the fullness of all that Jesus has done for him, Junjie gets levelled with these demands to "stop feeling that way", and to live up to certain expectations laid out by his mother.

And the prayer that the Pastor prays! First, He calls God "Father". In fact, in the original Chinese, he clearly says "Abba", which is the more intimate way to call on God. It's like saying "Daddy!":

"For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father." (Romans 8:15)

Then the Pastor says "We, your humble servants call on you." 

This prayer makes no sense! God cannot be "Daddy", but then you approach Him as some kind of harsh taskmaster! That is not walking in the truth. Such prayers are double-minded, to put in mildly:

"5If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8A double minded man is unstable in all his ways." (James 1:5-7)

I have pointed out the errors regarding what reparative therapy truly is, and what it is not. I have also pointed out what wrong believing that the pastor, the mother, and even the son are in bondage to.

Now, let's speak to elements in the film which help explain why Junjie, most likely, is struggling with same-sex temptations.

At the outset of the film, the mother mentions "Ah Huang". I presume that is the mother's husband, her son's father. 

Males who struggle with same-sex temptations did not have that emotional bond with their fathers. That loss can be devastating, an emotional need which turns into a sexual longing for other men.

Throughout the film, we see a very overbearing mother, as well. She orders her son around, tell him what to do, placing demands on him. This dynamic also foments same-sex temptations in males, since they are becoming so emotionally dependent on their mothers, without developing their own identities as males.

Dr. Thio Li-Ann, while serving as a nominated member of the Singapore parliament, discussed this phenomenon when she spoke in defense of Singapore Penal Code 377a in a 2007 parliamentary hearing:

An article by an ex-gay in the New Statesmen this July identified the roots of his emotional hurts, like a distant father, overbearing mother and sexual abuse by a family friend; after working through his pain, his unwanted same-sex attractions left. While difficult, change is possible and a compassionate society would help those wanting to fulfill their heterosexual potential. There is hope.



Clearly, Junjie is dealing with a "smothering mother", which has inhibited his development as a male. This lack of growth induces a yearning for intimacy with other males.

Then she levels a set of demands. She wants him to be "normal", to get married and have children. This boy is in need, and placing more demands on him only deepens the pain.

This boy deserves help, and it is indeed very sad to see such a painful conflict break out the way that it does in the movie.

The larger problem ensues, however, from the fact that such films want to push false narratives from sound-bites and brief emotional exchanges. The etiology of homosexuality is more complicated than most people realize, but by no means are people "born that way", and thus stuck in an identity. No one should doubt what the boy says, that he has tried to stop the feelings, but he cannot help himself. This is a struggle that cannot be resolved with will-power, with "trying hard." It takes a revelation of deep, unconditional love--the Love of The Father (1 John 2:15), which cannot be taken away or shaken away, no matter how trying to difficult one's circumstances may become.

When those emotional needs get met, the same-sex temptations subside and go away.

Sadly, films like this will continue to serve as propaganda by LGBT militants to promotes their lies:

1. People are born gay.
2. They cannot change.
3. It's cruel to help them change.
4. Organized religion plays a large part in promoting the cruel practice to help people break free of same-sex temptations.

For the record, I wanted to put my thoughts out there on this short film and the complex issues which it deals with. There is some truth to the portrayals of "conversion therapy" scene, true, but the notion that true faith in Christ only leads to such contentious outcomes is not true at all.

Also, the sad outcome of this film suggests that this just a fraught tragedy, when there are clear elements even within the film itself which outline why Junjie struggles with same-sex attraction. No father figure, overbearing mother, a sense of unremitting shame without any information or understanding for what he is going through, and there one has the perfect environment for a child who struggles with homosexuality.

I can only hope that my thoughts on this film (and others like it certain to come out) will shed light on the very contentious issue of homosexuality, conversion, therapy, and the truth that sets people free.

Republicans All in on Equality Act-Lite

This is bad news, simple as that:

Oh brother, what are these Republicans thinking?

Three of the four House Reps from Utah have co-sponsored this dreck.

Six House Reps from New York, and three House Reps from Florida.

We see states with large (and growing) populations moving toward normalizing this perversion.

To see the "pro-family" Republican Party go all in on LGBT perversion is just madness.

It's time to stand for truth and shout "Enough is enough!"

MassResistance Stands Up to Left-Wing Bigots, Chases Them Off

How to deal with left-wing “counter-protesters” who come and harass pro-family demonstrations and events

Keep in mind: They are really just hateful cowards and usually back down.

See video below!

February 27, 2021
ALT TEXT These Black Lives Matter activists thought they would intimidate our rally. But it didn't work out that way! Note one of our people in back with American flag.

It’s becomingly frighteningly commonplace. Our side will hold a demonstration, or a rally, or even host a speech. A group of leftists – including BLM or Antifa types, LGBT activists, or others – will find out about it and show up to intimidate the participants, or even disrupt the event, often with angry and profane signs and shouting.

Conservatives often react by trying to ignore them. But generally, the radicals pretty much accomplish their goal of intimidating people and causing some level of disruption.

Conservatives tend to look at them as simply “people like us” who have a different opinion, and maybe get carried away a bit.

MassResistance takes a different approach. First of all, we see these people for what they really are: dysfunctional on some level. They are hateful and angry. Their seemingly unhinged venom and profanity are a projection of that. There’s never any “good humor” or “joking around” to be found among them. As a group, they’re pretty miserable.

And like all classic bullies, they are actually cowards inside. So they need to be treated as one would treat any bully: direct confrontation.

In the interest of enlightenment, we’ve put together a video below from this past year to illustrate our approach. The first clip in the video is from an “Anti-BLM/Pro-Police” rally we organized last summer next to the police station in El Segundo, CA. A group of Black Lives Matter activists found out about it and held a vulgar and disgusting counter-protest across the street. A few of us walked over and proceeded to ask them some pointed questions, while reminding them that “All lives matter.” You’ll see what happens!

The second clip in the video was at a sidewalk “Stop the Steal/Recall the Governor” sign-holding at a street in Torrance, CA a few months later. An angry leftist comes to scream at and intimidate us. To her shock and surprise, we confronted her and chased her away!

We’ve been saying for years that the Left’s wave of fear is a house of cards. Let’s all start making the house fall down!

Rep. Greene Declares the Truth About Sex, Gets Four Times the Views on Twitter Compared to Indoctrinated Child-Abusing Mother Marie Newman

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is making waves again in Congress.


Her Congressional colleague Marie Newman tried to provoke Rep. Greene with a transgender flag placed outside of her Congressional office.

Rep. Greene pushed back, and put up a great sign:

This is the kind of boldness we need to see in Congress.

It's time to stand for truth!

And Rep. Marie Newman should be in a jail cell for abusing her SON and allowing, enabling him to be pretend to be a girl.

The Left Never Stops Fighting -- Neither Should We


There is one thing about the Left that the right, that conservatives across the board need to learn:

They don't stop fighting.

The Left never stops fighting. They are never happy, never content. 

Just this past weekend, Black Lives Matter was still marching and marauding in the streets of Washington DC. They have not stopped making their demands known to the Biden Administration.

They understand that just because their candidates get elected to office, the work does not stop for them.

They know that you need to keep pressing your lawmakers, your elected officials to do the right things.

Electing the right people is just the first step. Making sure they do the right things is the next step. All of this is very important.

Conservatives need to conserve our Constitutional Republic. We need to fight for what we have, or we won't have anything left to fight for.

The point is, though, that we need to fight!

So let's get busy!



MassResistance Fighting to Stop the Equality Act!


Hey MassResistance Activists and Allies:

We are all working very hard to stop The Equality Act, which is all about granting special privileges to sexual deviance and perversion.

Everyone of our chapter leaders has their lists of contacts.


Check out this link, and you will find the contact information for every current House Rep.


Click here.


Contact as many House Reps as you can, and tell them any or all of the following reasons why they must REJECT the Equality Act:





There is a terrible bill working its way through Congress right now. It’s called
the “Equality Act” (HR 5), and it’s anything but about equality.

 It’s about special rights for the Destructive LGBT Agenda!

Authored by openly homosexual Congressman David Cicilline (D-Rhode Island), this legislation aims to “expand” the Civil Rights Act and its protections to include homosexuals, transgenders, and individuals who identify with other paraphilias.

This legislation is nothing more than a Trojan Horse to stamp out our God-Given rights, enshrined in the United States Constitution. It’s an attack on life, the family, and our society as a whole.

If this bill passes and gets signed into law, these are some of the terrible outcomes that will follow:

1.      This bill will undermine the Civil Rights Movement which black Americans fought for.

2.      Churches will get sued or lose their tax-exemption status if they do not accommodate LGBT behaviors.

3.      Children would be forced to learn about destructive LGBT behaviors in public schools. Parents who try to oppose this curriculum could be charged with illegal discrimination.

4.      Private colleges would lose funding, the power to issue grants and scholarships.

5.      Public accommodations and small businesses would be forced to allow men into women’s bathrooms and vice versa.

6.      Business owners would be forced to violate their freedom of conscience.

7.      Hospitals and clinics will be force to offer experimental and harmful transgender treatments.

8.      Foster and adoption agencies with traditional values will lose the opportunity to place children.


If a House Rep's office asks you where you are calling from, you do not have to tell them. It's OK. The fact that they are getting lots of calls means that they need to pay attention.


Just keep calling the House Reps. Don't worry about email addresses.


If you have finished your assigned list, I encourage you to contact any of the 45 Democratic Congressmen from vulnerable districts:


https://cdn-m4m.chd01.com/pro/uploads/account_2111/1184/45_smallest_prsnt.pdf


Choose any five, or call all of them if you want! They are going to face redistricting next year, and that means they could lose their seat!





Here is the final vote tally for the Equality Act in 2019:


https://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/116-2019/h217


These are the Republicans who voted FOR the Equality Act in 2019, who are still in Congress. We need to go after them:


FL 25th   R   Diaz-Balart, Mario
NY 21st   R   Stefanik, Elise
NY 23rd   R   Reed, Tom
NY 24th   R   Katko, John
PA 1st   R   Fitzpatrick, Brian

Here are some Democrats who did NOT VOTE for the Equality Act in 2019 (who are still in Congress). We should urge them to vote NO or NOT VOTE:

CA 15th   D   Swalwell, Eric [surprise!]
MA 6th   D   Moulton, Seth [?]
No Vote MI 12th   D   Dingell, Debbie [Represents a Black District]

Colorado MassResistance Forces School to Turn Over Sex-Ed Curriculum

 

Colorado MassResistance forces school administrators to reveal hidden middle school sex-ed curriculum to community

Graphic and psychologically intrusive to kids

School officials wanted to charge us $120 for the public documents, but we finally got them for free

MassResistance has been helping parents face the relatively unhidden onslaught of “comprehensive sex ed” being pushed in their schools, openly brought in by leftist school boards and school administrators across the country.

But there’s another battle going on in school districts where the elected school boards do not buy into the comprehensive sex-ed agenda. Left-wing school administrators are determined to push their radical agendas. So they begin presenting explicit sex-ed materials (and other objectionable material) to younger students without any formal (or public) review. Parents and even school board members are purposefully kept in the dark about exactly what’s happening. Parents only find out bits and pieces of it by accident. The radical administrators believe that time and momentum is on their side – and they will eventually be able to openly make it a part of the curriculum.

When this sort of scheme happens, it needs to be exposed and publicly confronted immediately. But because of the deceptions, parents are at an even bigger disadvantage than usual. This is a battle that the Colorado chapter of MassResistance recently successfully took on!

Colorado School District 49 is a conservative area that includes eastern Colorado Springs and parts of the surrounding county. It is also where Cathy, our Colorado MassResistance leader, lives.

Parents of middle school children throughout the district had been upset and concerned about what they were hearing from their kids about the sex-ed classes. But the materials and curriculum was not being made available by the schools. All kinds of excuses were being used.

So last November, Cathy and the Colorado MassResistance team filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the middle schoolsex-ed materials – and also any Black Lives Matter, Critical Race Theory, or 1619 Project materials being used.

The school district replied that they did not have any Black Lives Matter or related material in any of their curricula. But they clearly did not want to release the sex-ed materials.  They insisted on a $120 fee to obtain copies of all the records, including the labor costs (four hours), to search for them and redact any personal information. But MassResistance insisted on paying nothing. Across the country, we've never had to pay a school district for that information.

For a number of weeks, the school district stonewalled. More than a month went by. Cathy filed the FOIA again and even offered to come in and make the photocopies herself. But they never even replied to that.

Our New Jersey Chapter leader, Abraham, offered to assist Cathy. He has works with municipal law attorneys who often file lawsuits against derelict or recalcitrant school districts which refuse to comply with FOIA requests from the public. She got advice from him to help her move forward.

In Colorado, school boards must approve all school curricula, and there are also state guidelines. So there was a “sex-ed” curriculum outline for middle school students. But what is actually taught could easily go far beyond the vague set of goals set in the curriculum.

Taking it to the school board

At the next school board meeting, on January 14, 2021, Cathy spoke out boldly and asked the school board for help because she was facing considerable opposition obtaining public records. "They are supposed to be public, are they not?" she asked them. "Why can’t the public have access to the sex-ed curriculum?"

Surprisingly, members of the school board also wondered why she was not getting the documents that she requested. They directed the administration to help her deal with the FOIA request. One of the school board members observed that many parents were probably curious about this, and even suggested that it be posted on the website.

One board member went even further. He said that the board should conduct a review of the “access path” for people who have an interest in what the schools are teaching. He told the other members:

It seems like a very legitimate public interest request that should be transparent and easy to do on a website. If it’s not that way, why isn’t it? And what can be done to make it that way? I know that the public has concerns about what’s being taught in our s chools. Perhaps this could be an agenda item for a future meeting.

A few weeks after that school board meeting – and with a little more prodding from MassResistance – the school administration finally relented and gave her the information she requested … at no cost!

Fairly shocking – for middle school kids

We can see why the school administrators were hesitant to release the middle school sex ed materials. For kids who are 9-12 years old, it’s pretty intense and graphic. It’s probably factually correct. But it’s not “age appropriate” at all. The “factual information” would be way over their heads.

ALT TEXT Is this what you would want your kids to be taught in middle school?
ALT TEXT Do middle school children even understand this?
ALT TEXT This seems pretty graphic for middle school children.
ALT TEXT These are the options that they're telling middle school students about.

But far worse, like so much that the radical Left does to children, the graphic content appears meant to purposefully break down kids’natural modesty regarding sexual topics that they have at that age. It’s ideologically driven. How this affects children psychologically, the teachers simply don’t care.

Colorado MassResistance will make sure that this is presented to the public – and they can decide if this is what they really want their school board to push on middle school children.

Final reflection

Conservative school districts across the country are extremely vulnerable to this kind of infiltration from the radical Left. The next step is often the creation of phony (but well-funded) “astro-turf” local left-wing groups to intimidate school board members and parents who disagree with these programs once they’re in the schools.  We’ve seen similar districts in other places where that has happened.

Thus, MassResistance works to step in and help parents and normal-thinking school board members stop this problem before it gets out of control. It looks like we’re on the road to success in Colorado School District 49!
