Activist: Letters ‘NEA’ need to be added to LGBTQ
At its annual meeting last week, the National Education Association passed a proposal supporting a ban on students with same-sex attractions from receiving therapy. The amendment by the NEA Executive Committee states:
“The association further believes that therapies designed to alter a student’s orientation or identity are harmful to the emotional development of LGBTQ students.”
Linda Harvey of Mission: America suggests the three-million-member, pro-public education organization continues to succumb to an amoral culture.
“The NEA has become just an arm of the homosexual activist community,” she tells OneNewsNow. “And they insist on upholding the public relations stance that homosexual, bisexuality, and gender confusion are wonderful and great.”
Delegate Sissy Jochmann offered an alternate amendment on behalf of the Ex-Gay Educators’ Caucus. According to Harvey, Jochmann bravely spoke out against the proposal while those in agreement with her stood silent.
“What they tell me is there are plenty of Christian educators, even some who are delegates,” Harvey shares. “But the ones who are there are afraid to stand up to the majority who are far left.”
The NEA overwhelmingly approved the executive committee’s proposal while defeating Jochmann’s amendment.
