Kevin Jennings, a homosexual who was appointed by President Obama as his “Safe Schools” Czar is leaving his office at the U.S. Department of Education in July to become the new President of Be The Change, a non-profit organization.
Prior to his time in the Administration, Mr. Jennings founded and led the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, or GLSEN, the leading national education organization focused on promoting the homosexual lifestyle in schools.
Under Jennings’ leadership, GLSEN programs became commonplace in America’s schools. During his 14 year tenure as GLSEN’s founding Executive Director, GLSEN increased pro-homosexual school legislation by more than 600 percent, and grew the number of school-based and student-led clubs, such as Gay-Straight Alliances, from under 50 in 1995 to nearly 4,000 registered schools (with over 8,000 middle schools and high schools participating in the pro-homosexual “Day of Silence”) when he stepped down in 2008.
In 1992 he was named co-chair of the Education Committee of the Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth in Massachusetts. Jennings has authored six books on gay rights and education.
Jennings tells his story of his conversion from being raised in a Fundamentalist Christian family, to becoming a radical homosexual activist in his memoir, Mama’s Boy, Preacher’s Son: A Memoir of Growing Up, Coming Out, and Changing America’s Schools.
Mr. Jennings drew fire from conservatives when he was informed by a 16-year-old male student that he was having sexual relations with a an older man he met in the bus station bathroom in Boston. Jennings’ only advice to him was, ‘I hope you knew to use a condom.’
His time in the Department of Education was filled with numerous scandals and offensive behavior, including, but not limited to:
Expressing admiration for the late Harry Hay, a member of the Communist Party and senior leaders of NAMBLA, the North American Man-Boy Love Association, the militant pederast group.
Writing the foreword to Queering Elementary Education a book that advocates teaching the homosexual agenda to elementary children and praises teaching masturbation to a 7-year-old girl. Jennings admitted that he developed the “anti-bullying” label as a way to present the pro-homosexual agenda as a “safety” issue; Jennings’ GLSEN brigades have subjected millions of school children to forced “queering” sessions through various GLSEN-sponsored programs.
As is usually the case, the strongest advocates of “tolerance” end up being rather intolerant themselves. In a speech in a New York church in 2000, he declared”
“We have to quit being afraid of the religious right…I’m trying not to say, ‘[F—] ‘em!’ which is what I want to say, because I don’t care what they think! [audience laughter] Drop dead!”
There are many other activities he advocated that are too vile to mention here. His appointment was a flagrant rejection of all that is decent and right, and shows the hostility that President Obama and his staff have for the Christian faith. Perhaps at last many parents will wake up to the true agenda of the Department of Education and their pro-homoseuxal agenda.
