"Celebrate Diversity" bannerIllinois lawmakers are advancing an education bill that, if passed, could make Christian parents reconsider keeping their children in public schools.

HB246 would require that all public school students be taught the "roles and contributions" of homosexuals and transgender individuals.

Laurie Higgins of the Illinois Family Institute warns there's little chance of defeating the bill and predicts Democrat Gov. Pritzker will sign it.

Harvey Milk"I can't imagine it being stopped,” she tells OneNewsNow. “We hope that there are some Democrats who will oppose this. I mean, we always hope. It would be hard to do this work if we didn't have any hope at all."

A mandatory history of homosexual “contributions” would naturally conflict with orthodox Christian teaching that homosexuality is sinful and against God’s design for mankind, marriage, and the family. 

Under such autocratic legislation, Higgins says Christian parents should consider pulling their children out of public schools, since a school teacher’s instructions conflict with the parent’s teachings in the home. 

Meanwhile, Higgins says churches need to think seriously about how they can facilitate the exit of Christian children from government schools.
