sex educationOne pro-family leader is sending out a dire warning about the impact of a bill that is making its way through the Illinois legislature – one that would require public schools to teach the alleged contributions of homosexuals and transgenders.

Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute (IFI) pointed out a very troubling aspect of the pro-homosexuality bill that would require students to prove they have a comprehensive knowledge of the LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) curricula in order to pass the eighth grade.

She contends that if this bill becomes law it could some major detrimental consequences:

"[If this pro-LGBT bill is passed and signed into law, it will] increase the exodus from public schools by conservatives – those who are now sort of teetering on the edge of, 'Should I pull my kids out of school and homeschool them or send them to private school?'” Higgins asserted. “It's going to push them over that fence."

The cultural writer for IFI is very doubtful, but she maintains that a slight hope still exists that the bill might be defeated in the House.

"[There is a small chance this bill can be shot down] because we do know there are some Democrats who don't support this,” Higgins noted. “So, we have some hope, but we have to pull over some Democrats … and we can't lose any Republicans."

Higgins also warned that this leftist sexuality indoctrination would have to be taught starting in kindergarten … and continue all the way through the 12th grade.
