Parents and students in Iowa, who thought they were attending an anti-bullying conference, were shocked by the presentation of what they described as pornographic material.
The 10th Annual Iowa Governor’s Conference on LGBTQ Youth, held April 3 in Altoona, Iowa, was put on by Iowa Safe Schools. Shocked attendees reported the material was inappropriate for teens. Linda Harvey of Mission America says the safe schools/anti-bullying movement has been taken over homosexual activists.
“This is totally inappropriate material for children because what they want to do is normalize all of these behaviors,” she tells OneNewsNow. “And the only way, in their view, that any kind of safety will be achieved is if this is all normal to everyone.”
Instead of focusing on a safe school environment, parts of the conference advocated the pleasures of "gay" sex. Harvey says it's time to push back.
“Taxpayers and parents need to bring them back to a sense of responsibility and accountability, that safety actually means safety,” she says. “It doesn’t mean their version of being safe from opinions they don’t like.”
Instead of apologizing for catching people off guard, Iowa Safe Schools went to its Facebook page to refute the critical comments of those who attended, accusing them of distorting the event.
