CDC training students to be 'gay' advocates

PFOX is standing against a federal program directed at youth.

PFOXRegina Griggs, who heads Parents and Friends of ExGays and Gays, tells OneNewsNow her complaint deals with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

"The CDC is putting out website information to promote children becoming activists in our schools to defend gays, bisexuals and transgendered students," she details.

She goes on to report that the CDC is using $100,000 in taxpayer money to fund the program meant to train students to become youth activists.

"So here you have the Centers for Disease Control, who tell us that youth are the fastest-growing population to contract HIV and AIDS and at the same time saying we want our schools to become activists to promote it's normal, natural and healthy," Griggs accounts. "I think we're sending a message there that is not only wrong, but dangerous."

Meanwhile, the CDC is not allowing organizations like PFOX to provide truthful information, including letting young people with unwanted same-gender attractions know that change is possible.

PFOX has written a letter to the CDC, asking that it provide website links that are factually-oriented, non-partisan, and free from bias.
