Political correctness is on the march again. This time in the Illinois public school curriculum. On Friday, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signed a bill into law that forces children to be indoctrinated with LGBT history. It’s only the latest in a series of assaults by the left on traditional Christian values and morality.
The mandated inclusion of LGBT “history” in the Illinois public school system is another shot fired in the war against Christians and heterosexuals from the left, which wants to eradicate all reference to Christian morality and values in in America’s founding. Meanwhile, all the contributions of white Christian males, who the left paints as the problem, must be totally erased from the pages of history.
The Society of Human Rights, the first gay rights organization in the U.S., is an important part of what should be taught to our children about U.S. history, but American students are to be taught that great men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison were white male slave owners. So, no need to honor and remember their contributions.
The new Illinois curriculum also focuses on Sally Ride’s lesbian identity, not her contribution as the first female astronaut to fly in the Space Shuttle and as the first woman in space. No, the fact that she was a lesbian is apparently now more important.
Most conservatives remember the Supreme Court case of Masterpiece Cakeshop v Colorado Civil Rights Commission. Jack Phillips, a baker in Lakewood, Colorado was sued by a same-sex couple. He refused to bake a cake for them celebrating their “marriage,” for the reason that it offended his religious beliefs. The Illinois situation is just the latest in a trend to normalize homosexuality.
The left has made it a priority to promote the various minority groups, which include any group now that can claim aggrieved status — and has elevated them to the level of oppressed. While at the same time, progressives demonize white heterosexual Christian males — and anyone who holds to traditional Christian values — as racist, sexist, and homophobic. Christian heterosexuals have been slapped with a warning label, “the oppressor.”

This latest incident in the string of leftist assaults on Christian moral values shows how slippery the slope is. The Masterpiece Cakeshop case, and the left’s ongoing attempts to silence Chick-Fil-A, for the owner’s stance for traditional Christian morality were only the beginning.
