indoctrination (human brain)A pro-family group is drawing attention to a recent conference at a major university. "Whiteness in Queer Spaces," says the group, had nothing to do with education – but everything to do with indoctrination.

Campus Reform reports the University of Wisconsin-Madison hosted this event the week after Thanksgiving. The objective of the free conference, according to the UW website, was to provide "space ... for white identifying LGBTQ+ folks to address and discuss their role in oppressive whiteness in queer spaces, community, and beyond."

But Julaine Appling, president of the Wisconsin Family Council, contends the real purpose of the presentation was to "inculcate" students with left-wing ideology.

"And the ideology that the institution wants to make sure they inculcate into the students' thinking is a very secular, humanistic, hedonistic worldview," she shares. "I know that's strong language – but when you see programs like this, you know that's what they're trying to do."

"Oppressive whiteness" was a secondary theme of the program. According to Appling, white guilt is an ongoing topic for progressives.

"Well, they want us to feel guilty. And they want the students to know if they're white – and especially if they're white and male – that they should be apologetic and even groveling for the sins of their fathers and forefathers," she adds.

The conference was sponsored by the Gender and Sexuality Campus Center at UW-Madison.
