Traditional beliefs will be branded 'archaic' & 'bigoted'

"Celebrate Diversity" bannerRequire "instruction on diversity and inclusion" – that summarizes the intent of an education bill that's expected to become law in New Jersey soon.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy is expected to sign into law A4454 – legislation that would force highly sexualized curriculum into all classes (K-12) in the state's public schools. The bill, which has passed both state houses, would "mandate harmful and gender identity diversity lessons" to those students, particularly those who are younger – that's according to the New Jersey Family Policy Council.

The Council's director of advocacy, Shawn Hyland, tells One News Now that the instruction material that would be used undermines the core beliefs of most 5- and 6-year-olds who are from traditional families.

"It's presented in such a way that if a student was to come from a family [and believed], based upon their faith [or] their tradition, that gender identity is both biological and binary, then those beliefs are being slandered as oppressive and archaic and bigoted," he explains.

A4454 states the following:

"The instruction shall … highlight and promote diversity, including economic diversity, equity, inclusion, tolerance, and belonging in connection with gender and sexual orientation, race and ethnicity, disabilities, and religious tolerance."

Hyland points out that children of kindergarten age aren't able to handle the complex and corrupt ideology of leftists.

"These students are just learning to tie their shoes," he shares, "and this type of information, no matter how simple they try to present it, is only going to complicate and confuse these children's understanding of human sexuality."

The pre-Christmas Senate vote to approve the measure was 26-13 (1 abstention); and the Assembly approved it 46-29 (4 not voting) on January 11. Hyland says despite the outcry from tens of thousands of upset parents, legislators apparently felt empowered to pass the bill and ignore their constituents' concerns.
