NEA Teachers’ Union Dabbles in Sexual Bigotry

You know it’s always going to be a party when the country’s largest teachers’ union, the National Education Association, gets together for their annual convention. And this year in Boston didn’t disappoint anyone who was eagerly anticipating bitter Trump tears and some of the more entertaining suggestions on how to advance leftwing politics in the American schoolroom.

But what was perhaps the most intriguing of all the ridiculous antics we’ve come to expect from a group sadly giving many teaching professionals a bad name was their handling of issues involving sexual preference.

For the longest time the NEA has been an open supporter of the sexual revolution in all its manifestations – from promiscuity to homosexuality to bisexuality to transgenderism. And this year appeared to be no different, as they allotted funds to facilitate programs promoting this agenda in public schools. Further, the NEA agreed to partner with two notorious groups famous for promoting anti-Christian discrimination: the Human Rights Campaign and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

But then, just when you were tempted to believe that “#LoveWins” and won at the 2017 NEA conference, they apparently became very judgmental and bigoted towards the sexual preferences of some of their own exhibitors. How bigoted? They actually threatened to remove them from the exhibit hall, subjecting them to public disgrace by taking up new business items at the meeting that was intentionally hostile, demeaning, and “othering” of these individuals.

And it’s all because of their sexual preference. That would be the preference to no longer have homosexual relations.

Yes, keeping with the sad theme of dismissive intolerance directed at ex-gays in our culture, the NEA showed utter disrespect for their sexual choices and have singled them out for future scrutiny of their literature, testimony, and experiences.

Incidentally, that future scrutiny will be the responsibility of the NEA’s president Lily Garcia – the same woman who took to the stage last year to crow about the Supreme Court’s legalization of so-called “gay marriage:”

“The Supreme Court decided on our side and on the right side of history. And my son, Jeremy, called me and said, ‘Ma! Mike and I are no longer living in sin!’”

Yes, no doubt the Ex-Gay Educators are going to get a fair evaluation from her. It’s just a curious thing how a movement and its advocates who are so adamant that gender is fluid to the point where you can be a different one daily, that whatever sexual proclivity intrigues you at the moment is to be embraced, and that no person has any right to judge or disapprove of the sexual choices of another, can be so vitriolic and hateful towards those who decide to walk away from homosexual sex.

Are we to honestly believe that gender is fluid but attraction cannot be? This once again exposes not just the illogic behind this anti-science movement of radical leftists (at the NEA and beyond), but also the underbelly of hatred and bigotry that permeate their attitudes towards anyone who disagrees with their dogma.
