NEA: Oust religious freedom, welcome 'transgenderism'

transgender bathroom pinkTeachers unions across America are shunning Christianity and embracing the LGBT community, as the National Education Association is now pledging at least $70,000 to fight religious freedom bills and championing a gender-confused policy on bathrooms and locker rooms.

The NEA will meet in Washington, DC, from July 2–7 in order to set its agenda for the coming year, and it itinerary looks decidedly liberal — especially when it comes to pushing the “gay” agenda.

Retired NEA member Jerelee Smith has been tracking the latest proposal, which is expected to raise the concern of conservatives and Christians alike.

“It looks like to me they're bringing out all the guns,” Smith begins. “There are six different strategies they propose to fight what they call discrimination against LGBTQ individuals.”

The strategies mentioned include pushing for mixed-gender bathrooms and locker rooms, broad support for gay school clubs and the shutting down of conservative and Christian dissent. The NEA is specifically going after religious freedom and accommodation bills, such as the ones passed in North Carolina and Mississippi.

“They're proposing a rapid force to combat anything that might be just in the formation on a state level that might address the LGBTQ issues,” Smith warns.

An alert was also given that efforts to mobilize the LGBT movement from coast to coast are already in motion.

“There's an army of activists across every state, and they can activate their phone lines to influence the public in just a matter of a day or two,” Smith adds. “They influence all of the state legislatures and, of course, the federal legislators.”

The agenda item obtained by OneNewsNow indicates that the union is willing to spend $70,000 on the effort, but Smith contends the NEA has slush funds with hundreds of thousands of more dollars it can throw at the issue, if it so wishes.
